Q+A with Sharon Ashwood
EJ: When did you begin writing?
Sharon: I’ve always written for my own pleasure—I think I started on walls and moved to paper sometime in grade school. I began seriously writing novels with publication in mind about 10 or 12 years ago. The best thing I did was join a couple of critique groups.
EJ: What brought you to the paranormal genre?
Sharon: Stories to do with magic and the supernatural have always been my go-to books. I particularly like the collision between the supernatural and “normal” worlds—there is a great potential for both humor and conflict when realities collide. My natural style is just between paranormal romance and urban fantasy. I seem to love chase scenes and blowing things up.
EJ: If you could be any paranormal or have any one supernatural talent, what would it be? Why?
Sharon: Hm. Maybe the ability to go for days without sleep? Or make time stand still while I finally got some quiet hours to work? All my desires seem to be about getting through my to-do list—maybe I really want to be The Flash!
EJ: Tell us why readers will enjoy your new release.
Sharon: Because my werewolf hero, Faran Kenyon, is adorable. He’s a definite alpha wolf, but he is funny and smart. Of all the heroes I’ve written, he’s the one I wouldn’t mind keeping for myself. For one thing, he is a trained chef and can pamper his guests with delicious meals. For another, he knows his jewelry. Well, he was a jewel thief once so if he goes to buy something for his lady love, he knows what he’s looking for.
I think what I like most about Faran is that he got a rough start in life but is better for it. Sure, he carries some scars, but he’s wise. There’s a lot to be said for someone who really knows himself and is ready to take on an honest, intense relationship, even if it’s a challenging one. And oh, he has to work for his happy ending in this story!
EJ: If your book(s) were being made into a movie, who would you cast for the leading roles? Why?
Sharon: Jessica Chastain might be a good fit for Lexie Haven, the heroine. She’s got the long red hair and the same spark. Faran--definitely Chris Hemsworth.
Thank you Sharon for joining us here today at From the Shadows!
Possessed by a Wolf (Horsemen #3) by Sharon Ashwood.
Wolves mate for life and wolves never forget their first love.
Royal photographer Lexie Haven wasn't expecting to see her ex-boyfriend Faran ever again. She could accept that he was a spy, but a werewolf? No way. No matter how good they had been together, she has very personal reasons for steering clear of monsters. That is, until he literally crashes into a royal gathering in all his furry glory—and with a gunman on his tail.
Within minutes of seeing each other again, the two estranged lovers are on a collision course. For now, Lexie is a prime suspect in the heist of a priceless ring, and only Faran can help her find the jewel and restore peace to the royal kingdom. But first, Lexie needs to trust in second chances and the supernatural.
