Aloha Gang! 

Today we’re meeting the awesome Meg Amor, a god friend of mine, who, like me is Hawaiian at heart and writes about the islands often in her books. She has a new release, Pele’s Revenge,  an exciting addition to the dazzling Lei Crime Kindle World series!

Meg is one intriguing wahine. She wrote and hand-published her first book when she was 11. And like all romance writers (Check out her “Hawaiians” series – links below), she believes in love: Her motto is “Amor Vincet Omnia”—Love Conquers All. 

Ah, love…

She also has a great sense of  humor. Why else would she stop by and answer some totally stupid questions?

 And now…here she is!


1. Aloha Meg, I know you love Hawaii. If you could be any famous Hawaiian other than real life or fiction, who would it be?

Duke Kahanamoku. He’s one of my heroes. He had such wonderfully, genuine aloha spirit. To me, he is always one of the epitomes of Aloha. 
2. I love Duke too! Okay, do you hide any secrets in your books that only a few people will find?
No. I don’t. I hadn’t even thought about things like that. LOL. 
3. What’s the last thing you watched on TV and why did you choose to watch it?
Brokenwood a NZ police procedural drama series. It’s bloody excellent. An Aussie friend of ours brought over the series when she visited and I have become hooked on it. Brilliant acting, NZ culture and people. Great show. I just love it. 🙂 And it’s a lot of fun because my mum was an actress and would have loved to have gone professional or done TV and film work. And some of the young actors she acted with are now seasoned NZ professional actors. I watch an episode and think…. Good lord, that’s Alistar Browning. Then I looked up the actors and thought… Peter Elliott… my god… I have pictures in plays mum was in when these guys were just starting out. It’s wonderful to see them in a professional acting venue now. I’m enjoying it so much. 
4. A penguin walks through that door right now wearing a sombrero. What does he say and why is he here?
“I heard you like to run your air conditioner night and day and keep things cool, plus you do a killer margarita. I don’t suppose you have any tequila, do you?” 
5. You’re stuck on a deserted island after a three hour tour that goes awry. Name six people alive or dead that you’d like to be marooned with…and your fantasy castaway meal.
Morgan Freeman – I love that man immensely on so many levels. He’s so deeply interesting and fascinating. 
James Baldwin – fabulous philosopher and writer no longer with us. 
My mum – cos she was always so interesting, funny, and lively. 
Martin Luther King – another fascinating man who would be fabulous to have a conversation with.
Anatonia Te Maioha – NZ actor – because he seems a very interesting and intelligent man too. 
Gosh, I haven’t chosen many women, have I? LOL
Helen Mirren because she’s also so interesting and intelligent. 
In short, anyone who’s interesting, intelligent, high EQ, deep, artistic, and has a keen sense of humor. 
Anything from Alan Wong or Thomas Keller. 
But details…and choices. I like to have choices… LOL. 
A deep, rich, pumpkin soup with kaffir lime leaf, maple foam, and Parmesan crisps. 
Rosemary Gorgonzola pizza bread
Fried green tomatoes stack with remoulade
Main Course:
Onaga fish with two sauces – lobster butter sauce and a red wine reduction cream sauce
A fillet mignon steak with a Parmesan crust and a brandy, cream, pepper sauce. 
For dessert: 
A Napoleon filled with a avocado cream and served with lemon curd. 
Alan Wong’s five spoons of creme brulee in various flavors
Alan Wong’s Chocolate Crunch Bars
Cheese plate with NZ cheeses, a decent hard cheddar, creamy Kahurangi blue, chevre, and juniper berries in olive oil with decent plain crackers.
Rounded off with a nice port.  


Wow, Meg! You are so cool!

Thanks for stopping by!

Pele’s Revenge SYNOPSIS:

A world of drugs, deceit, and death awaits in paradise…

After a near death experience, and burned out from working undercover vice, Detective Reef Kahili returns home to the Big Island of Hawai’i to mend his heart, and heal. But the first day on the job, paired with Officer Pono Kaihale he has to investigate the charred remains of the partially buried body in Madame Pele’s lava flow. He’s instantly thrust back into the world he tried to leave behind.

When he meets Hibby O’Neal, the mysterious assistant ME, he’s intrigued by her. But is there any truth in the rumors flying around the department about her and her late husband?

The closer they come to the truth, the more things heat up on the island as deeper, more sinister layers of deceit are uncovered. Four generations of an influential Big Island family are caught up in a tightening web of honor and dishonor.

Caught between solving a crime and his attraction for the enigmatic ME, Reef wonders who to trust. He’s driven by integrity and honesty, it’s why he became a cop, but now that’s also in question.

Have his instincts let him down over Hibby?
