He wanted her off his hands...

Vincent Tremayne, the reclusive “Devil Earl,” has been manipulated into taking rambunctious Lydia Price as his ward. As Lord Vampire of Cornwall, Vincent has better things to do than bring out an unruly debutante.

Now he’ll do anything to hold on forever
American-born Lydia Price doesn’t care for the stuffy strictures of the ton, and is unimpressed with her foppish suitors. She dreams of studying with the talented but scandalous British portrait painter, Sir Thomas Lawrence. But just when it seems her dreams will come true, Lydia is plunged into Vincent’s dark world and finds herself caught between the life she’s known and a future she never could have imagined.

1. Do you have a secret talent?

I have quite a few talents like painting, drawing, cooking, darts, and fixing cars, but I don't think any are secret anymore... except not everyone knows that I can rock AC/DC's "Big Balls" at karaoke. :)

2. Is there a song that really reminds you of your book?

Yes! When I began writing historical novels, I began listening to a lot of string quartet tributes of my favorite metal bands. When I discovered the string tribute version of "Spiders" by System of a Down, visions of book scenes immediately began dancing through my head. The song seemed to epitomize the hero and heroine's passion for each other. I swear I played that song on a loop when writing certain chapters.

3. What was the easiest thing about writing this book?

I would have to say that the easiest part was the fact that the setting and tone was already in place and a big chunk of the necessary research accomplished. It was much easier than the first book, BITE ME, YOUR GRACE, which was also my first attempt at writing historical fiction EVER. With that one, I had to constantly step away from the book to research proper addresses amongst the aristocracy, wedding attire in 1821, and even toilets and toothbrushes.

With ONE BITE PER NIGHT, I still needed to do a ton of research, but at least this time I didn't have to worry about the mundane and I had multiple souces of information at my fingertips.

4. Is there a word you love to use?

Every book seems to have a different overused word. For ONE BITE PER NIGHT, my editor caught an unprecedented amount of "buts" in the original draft. I think "that" was the big one for book 1, and "so" was a recurring culprit in book 3.

However, I recently noticed that the word "Trepidation" appeared quite frequently in all of my books and make it a point to go through every manuscript and pare down the usage of that one. I despise redundancy.

And I love the word "Askew" because it's fun to say, but hard to overuse.

5. Any real or imaginary pets?

Well, I have my cat, Ace. He's a black cat that practically talks non-stop. I also have my cars who I talk to constantly. There's my 92 Toyota Paseo, "Maneke Neko," and my 1980 Datsun 210, "Little Beast." Whether my bond with my cars is real or imaginary is in the eye of the beholder.
