Guest Author: MJ Compton!
Today I welcome romance author MJ Compton to the blog to talk about her latest book, AND JERICHO BURNED!
1) How did you get started writing?
I don't remember a time when I wasn't telling myself stories. I have memories going back to when I was two, maybe younger, lying in bed and tracing the cowboys on the wallpaper with my finger and making things up about them. The physical writing came when I learned to read.
2) What interests or excites you most about your genre(s)?
I love an alpha male hero and the hierarchy of a wolf pack is basic as you can get. A werewolf can get away with outrageous behavior that would make another type of hero look like an unredeemable jerk. And the only kind of heroine who can stand up to that strong of a male is someone who's pretty kick-butt herself. The clashing of two strong wills makes for great conflict and incredible passion.
3) Who or what is your favorite inspiration when writing?
Each book I've ever written has its own musical sound track. I spend a lot of time creating different versions until it's perfect. I listen to my custom CDs in the car; I listen to the mix on my mp3 player at Day Job. The songs help keep me in the story, even when I can't be at the keyboard.
4): Tell me about your latest book.
And Jericho Burned went on sale today. It's the second book in my Toke Lobo & the Pack werewolf romantic suspense series. Lucy is trying to rescue her sister from a religious cult; Stoker is on an undercover task force trying to bust a paramilitary domestic terrorist organization. Turns out they are both after the same group.
5) Please share with us the first paragraph of your latest work.
Here's the opening paragraph of And Jericho Burned:
Summoned as if she were a disobedient child, Lucy Callahan stood with her sister before her crazy brother-in-law, her hands, teeth, and stomach muscles clenched. She tried to focus on her irritation with Michelle instead of the wariness Randy inspired.
