Author Interview:

Q: Can you tell us a little about your newest release, Thunder with a Chance of Lovestruck?

A: I’d love to! Thank you for asking! Thunder with a Chance of Lovestruck is the fifth book in my Grimm Cove series. It follows the nearly forty-year love affair of Detective Drest Bright and Rachael Frankenstein.


Q: Frankenstein? Like Mary Shelley’s classic tale? 

A: Yes! Exactly like that! I took inspiration from Shelley’s work because I have a deep love for her novel. Rachael is a descendant of Dr. Victor Frankenstein. In my books, the Frankenstein family has been under the watchful eye of the Nightshade Fae Clan. They’re known for policing supernaturals. They imposed sanctions on the Frankenstein family after Victor created a monster and brought it to life.

The Nightshade Fae strictly prohibit any kind of romantic relationship between their Hunters and their chargers. Since Drest is Rachael’s assigned Hunter, no hanky-panky is allowed between them. Spoiler alert: there is totally hanky-panky between them.


Q: What part of the book was the most fun to write?

A: I loved getting to write scenes with the villain. I’ll often go back in when the book is at the halfway point to make a villain even more wicked. It’s also fun to write scenes that include characters from previous books in the series world. I like to do updates about them this way.


Q: How much research did you need to do for your book? 

A: There was a ton of research that went into it, but I love doing research, so I don’t mind. If anyone is interested, I have the sources I used listed on my website in a blog post.


Q: Why did the book order change for the Grimm Cove series? 

A: Originally, Willa and Jonathan Harker’s story was going to come after Starry with a Chance of Nightshade (book four), but that book took on a life of its own. By the time it was finished, it was painfully clear to me that Drest and Rachael needed to have their story told before Willa and Jonathan.


Q: Are Will and Jonathan still getting a story? 

A: For sure! It’s titled Wind with a Chance of Wolfsbane, and I’m hoping to release it very soon.
