Chris has graciously agreed to submit to an interview, then we’ll get a chance to read the blurb and excerpt of her new novel Destiny of a Gargoyle.  So, let’s give the mic to Chris.

What is your greatest temptation:

 In men: Tall and blonde. Nordic types. (YAY ME TOO)

In food: Cheese and anything with cheese on it or in it.

In clothes: Yoga pants. The most comfortable pants in the world.

What is your greatest weakness (example: buying shoes)?

I love to play games and sometimes get distracted by them on Facebook.

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

An Aston Martin Vantage. Sunburst Orange

(I’ll have a black one, please)  Note from another Aston fan!

Your dream home – mountains or ocean?

Mountains with a lake. I do love the ocean, but not the weather that can happen at the coast.

What inspired you to become a writer?

I’ve always had stories in my head. Just seemed obvious to write them down.

Do you have a daily writing routine?  If so, please share.

Not really. It depends on what day, if I have client work, and when yoga class is.

What is your favorite book?

I actually don’t have one. I know that sounds odd, but I don’t. I love anything by Edgar Allen Poe.

What is your favorite movie?

Probably Zoolander. I’ve seen it many times and laugh every time I see it.

Who is your favorite historical figure?

I’m not a big fan of history so I don’t have one.

In your books, who is your favorite hero and please introduce him?

Trey McCrane from Blonde Demolition. He’s a bad boy, but truly loves the heroine. She broke his heart and he never really recovered. He would do anything to get her back.

Who is your favorite heroine and please introduce her?

My favorite heroine is Chelsea James from Incendiary. She’s tough and smart and will do what needs to be done.

What do you have out now? 

Just out is the first in a trilogy of gargoyle shifter romances. Destiny of a Gargoyle is about the oldest Foley brother.

He was born in a time when magic ruled the Earth.

Gargoyles protected fairies from goblins. His family was a group of elite gargoyles who were assigned to protect a specific fairy. His father’s dereliction of that duty cursed his sons to become stone and wait.

Now reawakened in the twenty first century where no one believes in magic how is he going to convince his fairy that she is one and that she is in danger from a goblin?

He must do that without falling in love with her.

New releases anytime soon?

Destiny of a Gargoyle just came out.

Destiny of a Gargoyle

Donal Foley was born in a time when magic ruled the Earth.

Gargoyles protected fairies from goblins. His family was a group of elite gargoyles who were assigned to protect a specific fairy. His father’s dereliction of that duty cursed his sons to become stone and wait.

Now reawakened in the twenty first century where no one believes in magic how is he going to convince his fairy that she is one and that she is in danger from a goblin?

He must do that without falling in love with her.

  • Excerpt

“She’s it,” Donal said.

He could communicate with his brothers telepathically. Otherwise his time in stone might have driven him nuts.

“You’re sure?” Sean said.

“I’m sure. She’s it. I can feel my heart softening. She must be the one that I am supposed to protect,” Donal said.

“Wow. After all of these years. And of course Donal finds his first. Lucky guy,” Declan said.

“He is always the lucky one,” Sean said.

“If I were that lucky I wouldn’t have been stuck in stone here with you two lugs,” Donal said.

He would have lived and died in his own time. Instead of watching what had happened to the fairies he’d been born to protect. They’d died off and somewhere along the line the fairies had forgotten who they were. He’d bet that Meg had no idea who she was.

That made his job even harder. She wouldn’t have any idea why he was protecting her. The fairies had gone into hiding when the humans took over the world. They renamed his part of the island County Galway. What did that even mean?

He was Donal of Connaught. Not Donal of Galway. If he could sigh he would. He sighed in his head.

His brothers were stilling whinging about him being lucky. “I’m the oldest. You didn’t have to tell the Queen what our father had done. She could have made me stone and you would never have known what had happened to me.”

“Still, why do you get to go first?” Sean said.

“Because she is my fairy. Not yours,” Donal said.

He wasn’t going to apologize for finding his fairy first. He never would have thought they were going to find any of theirs. The fairies were all elsewhere and finding one from his own kingdom let alone another one had always been a long shot.

“What will you do?” Declan said.

“The Fairy Queen told me the rules before she left. I have to be in the fairy’s presence for a whole day before I lose the curse,” Donal said.

“A whole day. The sun must be in the same place for the beginning and the end?” Declan said.

“Yes.”

“How are you going to do that?” Sean said.

“I don’t know. She doesn’t spend that much time here, but I’m sure I have a few days to figure it out. I already feel as if I could fall off of this wall. Maybe I can go with her.”

“Without legs? Or only stone ones.”

“I don’t know everything, you mugs. I’m guessing some things here,” Donal said. “If you two be quiet and let me think maybe I’ll figure it out. You’ll have your chance and I get to sort out what needs to be done. That way neither of you mess it up.”
