KarilynBentleyWhat is your greatest temptation:

In men: Tall and dark haired (kind of like my husband)

In food: Sweets. Although I’m REALLY trying not to eat them.

In clothes: Do earrings count??

What is your greatest weakness (example: buying shoes)? Buying kitchen stuff. I don’t cook but I collect anything that has to do with cooking.

If you could have any kind of car, what would it be? Tesla

Your dream home – mountains or ocean? Mountains! I’m not a beach person.

What inspired you to become a writer? I grew tired of working in a cube farm years ago and tried to think of a job where I could stay home. Writing came to mind. At the time I thought all writers were rich and every book was a runaway best seller (stop laughing!!!). Yep, that was a rude awakening! I moved out of the cube farm and into a nice office, honed my writing craft, and continued to submit to publishers until The Wild Rose Press picked me up. I’ve been writing ever since!

Do you have a daily writing routine?  If so, please share. Since I work a day job, I try to write between 8 and 9PM. Drinking hot herbal tea while sitting in front of the computer helps me write.

What is your favorite book? At the moment the Game of Thrones series. I also enjoy books by JR Ward and Karen Marie Moning. There are too many good books to pick just one!

What is your favorite movie? Star Wars

What do you have out now?  Demon Kissed, the second book in the Demon Huntress series, released on 2/17. Excitement! Here’s a little blurb and excerpt for you:



Gin Crawford, the world’s latest demon huntress, has no time to mourn her dead lover as she’s called in to determine why a demon attack occurred at the local medical school. And not just any demon, but the one demon that gives her demon-killing bracelet the shivers. A dead professor, a lab full of missing anthrax, and a demon who turns good people into minions complicate her life. Can Gin and her mentor Aidan Smythe solve the mystery of the missing anthrax and the identity of the demon before someone else dies?


The scent of sulfur hangs in the air like a demonic stink bomb. I want to slap a hand over my nose, but no one else seems affected by the stench. Must be a demon huntress thing.

Justitian,” Smythe mutters. “Not demon huntress.”

“If you don’t like my new title, then stay out of my mind.”

He glares. I swallow. Cross my arms. Refuse to take a step back. I’m learning not to be intimidated by his anger. Go me.

My justitia vibrates, throwing me out of my internal battle, pulling me back to the land of death and minions. The blob of colors pulsates, a glowing reminder of a moment of terror. The moment the demon appeared to the grad student.

Granted, I’m still taking Demons 101, but I thought demons formed minions in private.  Usually after the human committed a crime, not before. A tryout, so to speak. And maybe that happened, but it sure seems to me like the black blob of demon force appeared to the grad student smack in the middle of the hallway.

Or maybe that always happens, and I just now noticed it.

The justitia’s vibration grows stronger, trembling my arm, my veins. Not its normal excited tremor upon seeing a minion or demon. A rush of images spikes through my mind, scenes of terror coupled with blood and death, memories of the justitia’s former wearers captured in time by the entity in the bracelet.

I’m not the only one freaked out by the colored blob. How bad was this demon to scare a justitia?

New releases anytime soon? I’m still working on the 3rd book in the series, but hope to have it to my editor soon.

Where can eager fans find you? I’m out and about, especially on the weekends. Stop by one of the following to say hi:
