And now here she is answering more crazy questions.

1.  Hi Julie, you are back for a second round of interviews you brave soul! Is root beer still your drink of choice since I remember you said you don’t drink alcohol. I’ll have the cabana boys pour one for you while I ask you some really stupid questions.

A root beer will be fine. Thank you. Yes, ma’am. That is correct. I generally try to avoid things that make me faint, and I’m not overly fond of the taste of regular beer either. Ha, you spoil me. Every time I come, I get treated like royalty. Must be nice to have cabana boys working for ya.

2. It really is. I get jealous of myself sometimes! Now… If you had a third eye, where would you put it?

I think that would be weird, but if I had such a choice, I’d like it to be on my left hand. That way, I could get a better perspective and use it like a periscope. The common answer might be the back of the head, but that would confine the eye to things behind you and on a certain level. A hand has more freedom of movement.

3.  I’m keeping an eye on your left hand! If you could have any accent in the world which one would you choose?

British. Definitely, British. I know those can vary too, but a light, refined British accent would be awesome. Some of my characters have that accent, so sometimes I think that way, but it’s not the same as being able to use it for real.

4. You are now working on a Christmas book for the Lei Crime series. Where is this story set and does it feature Marcella again?

Christmas Makes it Chaos is my 4th Lei Crime Kindle World story. After Never Again, which features a young Michael Stevens, I moved on to working with Marcella Scott, and I haven’t looked back. Yes, Marcella’s the star once again. This adventure takes her up my way to Pennsylvania. For reference, that’s the state left of where I live in New Jersey.

This time around, Marcella starts out intending to go to an anti-terrorism conference and ends up in the middle of a real terrorist plot. It’s not finished yet, so I couldn’t even tell you how she does it, but we all know she’s gonna whoop some bad guy behind and save the day.

5. Since I already asked you last time about a desert island meal I’ll round out things by asking you this: Where is your favorite place to go on a weekday afternoon when you have no plans or obligations?

If the weather is nice and warm, I enjoy going down to Coldstone (an ice cream joint) or Starbucks and getting a strawberry mango smoothie or an iced coffee, respectively. Both are within walking distance of my apartment. There I shall soak up the sunshine and fresh air and catch up on my sorely neglected reading. Otherwise, I’m content to write in my room with a cup of tea. That’s enjoyable too.

Thanks again for chatting with me. I look forward to catching up on my Lei Crime KW readings, including your works. Bye.

Thank YOU Julie!!


Revenge Makes it Sweeter: SYNOPSIS

Revenge is a lot of work. 

When the original plan for his ex-wife goes awry, Martin Cantrell turns his mind toward a sweeter revenge: stealing their daughter’s affections. But he’s not the only one plotting, and his enemies are better at keeping to the shadows. 

Meanwhile, Special Agent Marcella Scott gets a late night summons to the hospital to speak with a gunshot victim. She knows to expect almost anything, yet he still surprises her. 

“Agent, if I die, save the girl.” 

The girl turns out to be Katelyn Cantrell. Marcella’s not the only one protecting her, and the other person has no problem killing to obtain their goals. 

Can Marcella prevent an assassination and catch a killer? 

Find out in Revenge Makes it Sweeter. This story comes several months before Black Jasmine of Toby Neal’s original Lei Crime Series.
