A fan of paranormal romance? Check out this series!
Welcome, Brynna! What scene in your book was the most fun to write, and why?
While it’s impossible for me to choose only one scene, I will say all the scenes with magic spells were the most fun. Even with magic there are rules and it was tough to stay within those boundaries.
How long have you been writing, and what (or who) inspired you to start?
I’ve been writing with the goal of publishing since 2005, but writing stories for as long as I can remember. A lot of situations and things steered me toward writing, but it was never really a conscious decision.
What do you like best about being a writer?
Truly my favorite thing is when a reader says how much they loved a particular character. That they made them smile when they were down.
What is the most challenging part of being a writer?
Working deadlines around my family and the day job.
I believe it!
If your book were being cast as a movie, who would you want to play the main characters?
I’d love to see Elemental Magic made into a Lifetime Movie. Who wouldn’t want to see their book on the screen? lol. Until the movie folks start calling, here are my picks for a few of the characters.
- Jackson Roarke – (Channing Tatum)
- Olivia Corrigan – (Jenna Dewan-Tatum)
- Ryan Corrigan – (Ryan Reynolds)
- Kate O’Connell – No clue, maybe an unknown
- Skye Corrigan – (Matt Bomer)
- Rhiannon O’Malley – (Rachel LeFevre of Twilight fame)
- Devin McLoch aka Christophe LeFluer – (Chris Hemsworth)
- Arianne Farrell aka Briella Farrell – Again no clue.
Hmmm…(mentally reviewing how many times Jackson’s shirt might have to come off during that movie… 😉 )
What are you working on right now? What can readers look for from you in the next year?
I like to work on more than one project at once, so I currently have three series either in progress or planning. I’m focusing my attentions on Tempting Taylor which is book two of the Triple Star Ranch series. Claiming Ana left a lot of loose ends and barely tapped the surface of the homicide investigation of Sam Murphy’s death. I left things up in the air intentionally, as the story was more about Howl and Ana than the Murphy brothers. Tempting Taylor is fast paced, hot and settles a part of the overall story, but it will take the remaining two books, Craving Cassandra and Saving Sarah to bring the series to a satisfying conclusion.
My other focus is Charm of Light, the first book in the Shadows of Seven series, a continuation of Elemental Magic. Light takes place about twenty years into the future picking up with Allaina Corrigan’s story (daughter of Ryan and Kate Corrigan (Wait for the Wind). Her guy is a non-sparkly vampire with very human tendencies and magical powers.
Impressive! Good luck…
What authors and/or books have inspired you?
Sherrilyn Kenyon is my favorite author, but it was Nora Roberts’ Sea Swept that inspired me to start writing romance.
What are you currently reading? What are your thoughts about it so far?
I’m half way into Son of No One by Sherrilyn Kenyon (review books rock!) and I love it. I don’t want to spoil it for anyone by giving away the details. The book doesn’t release until 9/5/14.
Review books DO rock 😉
Thanks for hosting me today!
My pleasure! Thanks so much for visiting!

Excerpt from Earth Enchanted: Elemental Magic Book One
Jack scanned the bookstore as he sat in the hard metal folding chair, at the small table, and wrote. He thought his hand would fall off. Whoever said writing wasn’t real work had to have been crazy. He knew things about two hours’ worth of people their mothers probably didn’t know. Mandy Lou something or other had a granny who thought he was grade A and she was his number one fan. She didn’t look old enough to be allowed to read his brand of horror, but she had two copies of each of his books.
Jack had politely—he hoped—shrugged off the forty invitations to dinner, fourteen offers for coffee, and two very indecent proposals for ‘wild, hanging from the chandelier sex’ to quote one lovely fan. All in all, a long day barely described it, but he’d seen people and observed, that was for sure. If it helped with the new book, it might have been worth it, and then again maybe not.
Ellie dropped by to see how things were going, and then promptly ran away when he tried to beg out. He didn’t like being maneuvered, and Ellie was a champion at it. Entertaining the notion of strangling her got him through the second hour, but considering he needed a good editor, he changed his mind.
The line grew shorter. While he juggled the newest Hastings baby on his knee, which the boy’s proud papa had insisted on, Jack inscribed a message in the front cover to Mrs. Hastings, another number one fan and the mother of six children all under ten. How does she have the time to read at all? His message to her read, “Mrs. Hastings, I’m your number one fan. You rule. Jack.” Mentally saluting her efforts, he passed back junior, and sent them on their way. He automatically reached for the book a slim hand offered. Eyes down on the cover of what he’d created, he said the same thing he’d told countless others. “Hi, who should I make this out to?”
“Just sign it to Olivia Corrigan, fellow mystery writer.”
Her voice alone lifted his eyes to meet hers, a musical lilt that teased of mist and bogs, faeries and leprechauns. She was dressed professionally, but he could easily imagine her calling up a wild wind or casting spells. She was only about 5’4” and slim, claimed black Irish coloring. He saw a flash of what might have been a premonition, but after blocking the gift so long he couldn’t hold on to it. Did he smell rain? Candles or lightning? But the sun was shining. For a moment he just stared, couldn’t speak , and was certain he knew her but couldn’t remember where from.
“Is something the matter?”
He quickly signed her book, before he forgot that was the reason for their meeting in the first place. She was the last in line, and he was free. Thank God! Sorry, muse, position filled.
“Jack Roarke, it’s a pleasure, Miss Corrigan.”
