PLEASE WELCOME STEPHANIE CHONG author of WHERE DEMONS FEAR TO TREAD
It is officially STEPHANIE CHONG DAY at BookHounds and I am starting off with a great Q&A
1. Bookmarks or dog ears?
2. Dust jacket on or off when reading a hard back?
3. What is the first book you remember reading by yourself as a child?
The Mr. Mugs books by Martha Kambeitz and Carol Roth. It’s a series about an Old English Sheepdog. The books were used in Canadian elementary schools in the 70s and 80s. No word of a lie – I’m not just saying this because yours is a dog-themed book blog!
4. What are you reading right now?
Kathryn Stockett’s The Help; Karen Marie Moning’s Bloodfever
5. Do you have a favorite author?
Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Michael Ondaatje, Margaret Atwood, Maggie Shayne, Kerrelyn Sparks.
6. Was there a book that inspired you to write?
I think every book I’ve ever read has inspired me to write! In particular, the book that inspired me to write this particular book was How Yoga Works by Geshe Michael Roach.
7. Do you have a favorite place to write?
I have a home office that I love, with a big built-in bookshelf. I also write in my living room a lot. Our 16-month-old pug, Dexter, loves the living room and is always on his best behavior there.
Fledgling guardian angel and yoga teacher Serena St. Clair dares enter Devil’s Paradise nightclub on a mission – to retrieve the wayward Hollywood “It Boy” she’s assigned to protect. But she’s ambushed by the club’s owner, Archdemon Julian Ascher. The most powerful demonic entity in Los Angeles, Julian is handsome as sin, a master of temptation who loves nothing more than corrupting pleasure-seeking humans. He won’t release the lost soul Serena is supposed to guard. Unless she accepts his dangerous wager…
After the disastrous way his human life ended, Julian vowed that no woman would get the better of him again. Yet this sexy-sweet angel, smelling of fresh ocean air and happiness, triggers centuries-old feelings. Now, their high-stakes game of seduction, where angels fall from grace and where demons fear to tread, will lead them either to an eternity in hell…or a deliciously hot heaven.
