Q+A with Stacey Marie Brown

EJ:  When did you begin writing?

  I wrote since the time I learned how. Writing stories, plays, and poems were my way of release, expressing myself, and escaping. I don’t know why but I never thought about it as a career until the last couple of years. I went to school for acting, then architectural design. Creating worlds is always something I loved to do. When I started writing Darkness of Light, I knew without a doubt this was what I was meant to do. Everything led me here.

EJ:  What brought you to the paranormal genre?

I’ve always preferred the paranormal/fantasy genre. My favorite movies growing up were Labyrinth and Goonies. There is so much possibility. You can create anything. There is no limit with fantasy. I like the thought there is more out there in the world, and that I can create a world were magic and mythical creatures exist.

EJ:  If you could be any paranormal or have any one supernatural talent, what would it be? Why?

I would like to have magic to travel anywhere in a blink of an eye and live for thousands of years. The older I get the faster I feel life is going by and I would like to stay around and discover all the amazing things in it.

EJ:  Tell us why readers will enjoy your new release.

Hot alpha bad-boy bikers, mystery, intrigue, adventure, funny sidekicks, and steamy sex, all wrapped up in a coming war between Light and Dark Fae. What more could you want?

EJ:  If your book(s) were being made into a movie, who would you cast for the leading roles? Why?

  I actually have up on my website and Pinterest my ideas of what I think my characters look like. But that is a hard one. People reading them have their own version and usually who they the directors cast never fits their ideas. My characters are so strong and developed it would be hard to cast them. I actually avoid any “names” when picking my pictures. To me there is only one Eli and Ember and seeing that well-known actor play another role would take away from that.

Dwellers of Darkness (Darkness #3) by Stacey Marie Brown.

Some days feel like years, but in Ember Brycin’s case just the opposite is true. She had only been in the Otherworld for a day or two when she returned back to the Earth’s realm. But it is three years later on Earth. Em is now 22. It would matter if she was human, but she’s not. She is a Dae, part Demon and part Fay, with a little Dark Dweller thrown in to make her even more of a freak.

Seeing Seattle rebuilt only confirms she has been gone three years. For her it was not long ago that the Seattle area was just rubble of concrete and death. All done by her hand.

One thing that hasn’t changed, though, is her undeniable connection to Eli Dragen, who is sexy, gorgeous, and even more volatile and frustrating. But her problems go way past him. The Seelie Queen of the Otherworld still holds Mark, Em’s father, and her friends, Ryan, and Josh as hostages. Em needs to rescue them without, once again, getting caught and being used as a pawn to help the Queen regain possession of Earth. At the same time Ember is in hot water with Lars, the Unseelie King, after breaking her contract with him.

As some secrets have come to light others seem to become even more enigmatic. The only truth Ember knows is,everyone is harboring secrets. As Eli’s past is revealed, Em understands more clearly why he acts the way he does and how much their lives are intertwined. But she also knows Eli is holding something back, something that could change their relationship forever.

Em herself continues to wrestle with her feelings toward Torin and her own secret she’s withholding from Kennedy. As the tension for war mounts between the Seelie and Unseelie (Light and Dark), the tension at the Dark Dweller’s compound mounts even more as they prepare to obtain the sword no matter what the price. But is Ember the answer to the location of the sword? Is she the one to fulfill the prophecy? As usual nothing is ever what it seems.
