The Bookish Snob Promotions Author Interview: Stacey Kennedy

Today I'm lucky to be hosting the fantastic Stacey Kennedy on the "A Warrior's Witch" blog tour.  You can check out my review of the book here

Stacey, can you tell us a little more about A Warrior’s Witch.

A Warrior’s Witch is a paranormal romance with a fun suspenseful mystery and has a dash of sensual spice. Here is the blurb:

Murder has brought Talon, Master of Guardians, as well as Zia, his witch and Master of Witches, to Chicago. The manner of death appears to be a suicide, but Talon is far from ready to close the case. To avenge the Guardian linked to his past, he agrees to take on the assignment, and find her killer.

As they dive deeper into the investigation, they find themselves entering a world where BDSM is the norm. A lifestyle that Zia is uncomfortable with and, rattled by this new development, she is more than ready to return to the Otherworld. But their investigation quickly takes an unexpected twist when they discover that they’re not only hunting a killer but also someone who is controlling supernaturals in Chicago.

Their mission not only brings danger, but also forces Talon to deal with decades old guilt that corrodes his soul. Every event that unfolds only deepens his fight and pushes him to face an ultimate choice—what is more important—his duty to the Otherworld or the witch he holds closest to his heart?

On your website you say you love series. What do you think the draw is to revisit certain characters over and over?

I write series because my books are focused around a woman coming into herself. Owning who and what she is. That acceptance I feel just can’t be found in only one novel. It takes a series of events for the character to discover all there is to know about herself and love who she is.

I do write single titles, but they’re my erotic romances that don’t have that full circle type of feel. All heat—and lots of it.

Do you have a favorite author or particular series?

Katie MacAllister and Jeaniene Frost are by far my two favorite authors. I have a real big thing for stories told in the first person and where the hero and heroine stay in love throughout the entire series. I’m not a huge fan of drama and if I’m not given a happy ending, I’m grumpy.

Your books have had witches, werewolves and ghosts, which paranormal entity was the
most challenging to write?

The most challenging had to be the ghost, Kipp. It proved to be a tad difficult to write love scenes were they cannot actually touch and this made me get creative. But the process was so fun!

Do you think there is a paranormal entity that couldn’t be made sexy?


Do you have a favorite character from your books?

My favorite characters tend to be the ones I’m currently spending time with. So, right now I’m totally smitten over Ryker. Dear God, the man is too sexy for his own good. But when I start the next Tess & Kipp book, I’ll love Kipp! Needless to say, it always changes.

What are you working on next?

I’ll be starting the next Tess & Kipp book in the next couple weeks. I’ve outlined the book and am just wanting to sit down and start. If only I could get my to-do list down so I can dig in!

What book are you reading right now?

I’m nearly done River Marked by Patricia Briggs. I love me some Adam!! Now, if only I could find the time to finish reading it.

Tell your readers 5 fun facts about you.

I love horses and have ridden since the age of eight.
I’ve been kicked in the eye by a horse before and needed to get stiches on my eyelid.
I love an ice cold beer on a hot day.
I love to dance
I know how to drive a standard car.

Do you have any guilty pleasures?

Junk food—I love chocolate, ice cream, and candy!
