1. What genres do you write?
Paranormal romance, paranormal mystery, cozy mystery, chick lit, nonfiction, and a partridge in a pear tree…
2. Coffee or tea lover?
3. Name one thing on your bucket list.
I plan to live in the south of France, in or near Avignon, for a six-month period. Practice my French, drink wine, write, drink wine, tour Europe, drink wine…
4. Do you have pets?
All the Rescue Dogs! Currently: Princess Riley, named after the queen of Atlantis in my Warriors of Poseidon books. Daisy the Pug, who is 13.5 years old and rules the roost. And 3 year old Penny (named after Penny in The Big Bang Theory, because she’s pretty and bouncy), who is a black Lab mixed with something smaller.
5. When I wake up every morning I… stumble around until caffeine happens. Watch the first 20 minutes of Good Morning America, and then get on with my day.
6. Weirdest or unique thing you own.
There are so many… but a giant horse statue that lives in my office usually catches visitors off guard.
7. Do you have any hobbies or particular skills?
Fencing! And I just learned to swim, after being terrified of water ever since my dad almost let me drown when I was little.
8. What do you hope readers will experience or gain when reading your stories? I want to make readers laugh out loud, think a little bit, and enjoy the wild ride! And, in romance, of course, swoon at the happy-ever-after.

DEAD EYE – A Tiger’s Eye Mystery
For Jack Shepherd, tiger shape-shifter and former soldier, life is heading for a dead end. Dead End, Florida, to be exact. When he learns that he inherited a combination pawn shop/private investigation agency from his favorite uncle, Jack’s first job is to solve his uncle’s murder. Because sometimes it takes a tiger’s eye to see the truth.
Tess Callahan, who owns half a pawn shop in the strangest town in Florida, didn’t expect Jack to show up and be so very enticing. And exciting. And annoyingly over-protective. But when yet another dead body shows up on her doorstep, it’s time to take action. And if she has to team up with a sexy tiger shape-shifter to do it, well, that’s just a bonus.
Welcome to Dead End, Florida, where Bigfoot keeps a winter home. And welcome to the Tiger’s Eye Mysteries!
Winner is Christy S!
