I’d like to thank Kate Curran for tagging me in the Character Blog Hop. The character blog hop consists of answering a few questions to let our readers know about the new characters we’ve got coming in the near future.
My journey as a writer began when I turned 30, my youngest started kindergarten, and I went back to college. I took a class on fiction writing and the author was born—except it wasn’t a direct route to publishing my novels. I took a 20-year detour as a photojournalist specializing in agriculture. Twenty years later I published my first book, but it wasn’t the romance novel I’d anticipated—it was a children’s book. Three more children’s books have followed and now, finally, my romance novels.

Now on to Angel’s story “Antics, Antidotes, and Angel” Book II of the Twisted Sisters Club series:
1) What is the name of your character?
Hi my name is Angeline Talbot (Angel to my friends) and according to Deb I’m the heroine in Antics, Antidotes, and Angel, Book II of Deb’s Twisted Sisters Club series.
2) When and where is the story set?
The story is in Sacramento, California, modern day, and much of it take place in my store “Angeline’s” in Old Sacramento. I own an adult store, and before I get any dirty looks or eye rolls, the purpose of my store is to bring couples closer together. I design my own lingerie and have a fabulous supply of ‘adult paraphernalia’ to help keep couples connected and the know how to help ANYONE…except myself. But we won’t go there…not today.
3) What should we know about Her?
I’ve thrown myself into my store because it’s easier than dealing with my own problems. I lost my virginity to a bet. And no, I knew nothing about it. Needless to say, I have trust issues and a troubled past that I’ve yet to really deal with, until I was introduced to Travis Wellington…now I’m in real trouble.
4) What is the main conflict?
My troubles were of my own making, that’s what I get for being so naive and while I take full responsibility for my actions, and what I had to do, those decisions didn’t come easy…I feel stronger since meeting Sabrina. She’s opened my eyes to a few things, and while she and her well meaning friends are out to help me, it’s the ladies in the Blue Haired Brigade” that make me feel loved while I continued to deal with the fall out. And Travis isn’t making it any easier. Have you met Travis yet?
What messes up his/her life?
Meeting this man, Travis Wellington, may well be my undoing, because he has no intention of leaving me alone. One the one hand he represents everything I’ve been running from: He’s handsome, confident, and rich. On the other, he’s exactly what I want in a man. He truly cares about me and wants to help me, but I just can’t let myself go down that road. Don’t say it, I know, I’m fickle.
5) What is the personal goal of the character
When the economy tanked I had to close the doors to my bridal salon. It broke my heart. I’m hoping when the economy turns around I can re-open the doors. There is nothing more fulfilling that to make a gown for a bride, and all the under garments for her special day as well as her honeymoon.
6) Is there a working title for this novel, and can we read more about it?
Antics, Antidotes, and Angel is the working title or so I’ve been told.

Ruled by two dachshunds and addicted to Irish breakfast tea and the Walking Dead, she loves to write about vampires, wolf shifters, gargoyles and other assorted paranormal creatures. Amy loves to travel to places like London England, Edinburgh, Scotland, Paris France and Providence, Rhode Island where she stalks the coziest Irish pubs she can find. She writes to trance and house music by candlelight and welcomes email from her readers – especially if they want to talk about the supernatural.
Blood Gate Blurb:
Vampire Claire finds herself caught in the middle between her Master, Parker, and her Trigger, Andre. Little love is lost between the former friends, but somehow Claire must build a bridge between them when they are sent to Edgewood to settle their differences. The cost of her failure will be deadly.
Deep in the cellars of Edgewood, a game of sexual bondage unleashes unexpected dangers, twisting open, loving Andre into a secretive virtuoso of manipulation. Is this just another part of the game, or is he losing his mind? Parker will take desperate steps to protect his apprentice, but he won’t be dragged into the game with them.
Can Parker set aside forty years of bitter rivalry, or will he sacrifice Andre to save Claire?
