My guest today is Author Jody Wallace (who has a very special Cat companion, MeanKitty. MUST mention MeanKitty!) We met when we were both published at Carina Press and we’re still members of the Here Be Magic blog together. She’s just released her new book TRAITOR (MAELSTROM CHRONICLES BOOK 2) from the Entangled Select Otherworld line.
A few questions to start us off:
Veronica: What was your biggest influence in writing this book?
Jody: My recliner. It really shaped me during the book-writing process.
In more intellectual areas, I wanted to take the relatively common trope in paranormals and science fiction romances where a hero or heroine has some chemical, biological or other reason that they simply MUST have the sex and wring it out like a wet washrag. I also became intrigued by the idea of a sentient space ship considering its crew as its charges and how that type of personality might develop. And of course there is always a fascination with what would happen on our planet and how our people would behave if aliens invaded.
Veronica: How do you celebrate finishing a book?
Jody: Sitting in my recliner and relaxing! And then promising myself this is gonna be the one that pays for the new HVAC unit we had to get because of the 117 degree heat index we’re dealing with this summer.
Veronica: What’s on your To Be Read list?
Jody: Since I finished all of Veronica Scott’s science fiction romances, I’m thinking about reading some Natalie Damschroder while sitting comfortably in my recliner. Except that my recliner is currently full of cats, and nobody is allowed to move the cats.
The blurb for TRAITOR:
Captain Nikolas EstherVorn is a traitor. Or so it was decreed after Niko disobeyed protocol while trying to save Earth from other-dimensional creatures. Stuck in a prison cell, the last thing he needs is to be in close proximity to sexy-as-sin Dr. Sarah CallenJoseph. Not with him damn near ready to break out just to get to her.
Niko’s desire isn’t quite his own…and Sarah can prove it. He—along with the other soldiers on the disastrous mission—were drugged with some kind of toxin. Niko has no clue how the drug got into his body or why, but Sarah suspects there’s a link between the toxin and the fertility crisis of Shipborn humans.
To investigate is forbidden. But as lust becomes something deeper, binding them together in a way neither expected, Niko and Sarah must battle time—and their superiors—to uncover the secret that could save humanity…or destroy it.
