Q+A with Cathy Clamp (Forbidden)

Q+A with Cathy Clamp (Forbidden) urban fantasy

Please welcome today's guest author, Cathy Clamp!  Cathy is the author of The Thrall trilogy, the Blood Singer series, the Tales of the Sazi series, and the new Sazi spin-off series Luna Lake, including the new release FORBIDDEN.

Q+A with Cathy Clamp

EJ:  When did you begin writing?

Cathy: 
I started pretty late in life, around 35 years old. It was sort of by accident and I discovered I was good at it.

EJ:  What brought you to the paranormal genre?

Cathy:
  I don’t know that I could write anything else. LOL! It’s sort of where my mind goes when I start imagining plots. I’ve read horror and paranormal and thrillers my whole life, so it’s what I write.

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

Cathy:
  I would be a witch, closer to a Harry Potter sort who could use a wand to cast spells. I think I would probably be a Hermione, who studied everything and wanted to know all the spells. I don’t really know why. It would just be cool.

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

Cathy: 
A lot of readers of the Tales of the Sazi series asked whatever happened to the children who were kidnapped. Since I was dealing with the actual battle between the Sazi council and the snake shifters causing the problems, I really didn’t get a chance to answer the questions about those who were changed against their will.

The three heroines of FORBIDDEN, ILLICIT and DENIED were some of the attack victims of the snakes. Claire Evans, the heroine of the first book, was changed into a red wolf. Rachel Washington became a Great Horned Owl, and Anica Petrovic became a black bear. Each of them has a form of PTSD and needs to find that one person who makes her feel safe and loved. :)

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

Cathy: 
I always pick the people I have in mind for the character when I first start writing. I’m a visual person and I have to have them firmly in my mind before I start to write. Claire Evans was modeled after Kate Bosworth, but with shorter hair. The inspiration for Alek Siska was a hunky Canadian model named Devon from Fresh Face Male Models agency. Look them up and you’ll know sort of what they look like in my head.

Thank you Cathy for joining us here today at From the Shadows!

Forbidden urban fantasy Luna Lake Sazi series by Cathy Clamp

Forbidden (Luna Lake #1) by Cathy Clamp

USA Today bestselling author Cathy Clamp reboots the Sazi universe in Forbidden, a tightly-paced, high-tension urban fantasy thriller.

Ten years have passed since the war that destroyed the Sazi Council and inflicted a horrible "cure" on thousands of Sazi, robbing them of their ability to shapeshift.

Luna Lake, isolated in Washington State, started as a refugee camp for Sazi orphans. Now it's a small town and those refugees are young adults, chafing at the limits set by their still-fearful guardians.

There's reason to fear: Sazi children are being kidnapped. Claire, a red wolf shifter, is sent to investigate. Held prisoner by the Snakes during childhood, Claire is distrusted by those who call Luna Lake home.

Before the war, Alek was part of a wolf pack in Chicago. In Luna Lake he was adopted by a parliament of Owls, defying Sazi tradition. The kidnappings are a painful reminder that his little sister disappeared a decade ago.

When Claire and Alek meet, sparks fly—but the desperate race to find the missing children forces them to set aside their mutual attraction and focus on the future of their people.

Release Date: August 18, 2015
Genre: Paranormal, Urban Fantasy
