Please welcome today's paranormal guest author Shawntelle Madison! Shawntelle is the author of the Hadley Werewolves series (Bitten by Deceit, Bitten by Treachery), the Coveted series (Coveted, Kept, Compelled), and the Warlock Repo Man Chronicles (Repossessed).
EJ: When did you begin writing?
Shawntelle: I started writing in middle school, but I didn't really get serious until 2008 after college and having kids. I was far too busy in college to write.
EJ: What brought you to the paranormal genre?
Shawntelle: I've always loved sci-fi/fantasy so it was only nature to write in that genre. I read a great deal of science fiction in high school from the classics to the recent fiction at the time.
EJ: If you could be any paranormal or have any one supernatural talent, what would it be? Why?
Shawntelle: If I could chose one, I'd say werewolves. I love writing about them. There is just something really sexy about a primal beast lurking under a man’s skin. Unlike a vampire who pretty much wants to drain your blood. That's not very sexy.
EJ: Tell us why readers will enjoy your new release.
Shawntelle: My next release will be next month on January 20th. Repossessed is a novel in the universe of my Coveted series. It's about a witch matchmaker and a warlock repo man. She runs into problems with her business and she needs to ride along with Rob on his repo missions. She gets mixed up with the bad guys Rob faces.
I had so much fun writing this book. After writing a hoarder werewolf, there was no direction to go except a warlock repo man, a leprechaun pimp, and a talking satchel. And that is just a pinch of fun I tossed into that book. If you like fun paranormal romance, my books are for you.
EJ: If your book(s) were being made into a movie, who would you cast for the leading roles? Why?
Shawntelle: I love this question!
Natalya-Megan Fox (I had originally pictured a young Joanne Whalley)
Thorn-Wilson Bethel (From Hart of Dixie) or maybe Channing Tatum
Aggie-Deborah Ann Woll (True Blood)
Rob Shin - Rain (He was in Ninja Assassin)
Tessa - Jessica Alba
Repossessed (Warlock Repo Man Chronicles #1) by Shawntelle Madison.
Supernatural matchmaker Tessa Dandridge knows a little mist here and a little magic there will help reckless werewolves and precocious pixies find love. That is, until her magical Smythe scroll is lost in her repo’ed car and she can’t contact her V.I.P. clients. To connect with an important client cavorting in the fifth dimension, Tessa must depend on handsome Rob Shin, a warlock repo man, to enter Limbo and find her Smythe scroll.
Rob has money problems of his own, thanks to the bank determined to foreclose on his elderly aunt and uncle’s home. Repossessing magic wands and cursed pianos from disgruntled warlocks isn’t the best pay, but the Navy SEAL works well as a repo man to pay off his family’s debts. Rob’s repossession jobs catch up with him when a powerful warlock seeks to end his life for his constant meddling, drawing Tessa in the middle.
Release Date: January 20, 2014
