What inspired you to become an author?
A change in my life path. I’ve always written since I was a kid, but never considered it a viable way to make money. It wasn’t until I was pregnant and contemplating a big change that prompted me to take the plunge.
What was the inspiration for your new book, Glimmer?
I was totally inspired by the artwork of Brian Froud. He does amazing work on faeries. His books are awesome.
When will Glimmer be released?
Glimmer is already out on kindle and smashwords.
Will Glimmer be part of a series?
Yes, I plan on at least one more book, which should come by the fall, and am planning to put out a prequel called Dawning very soon.
How long does it take you to write a book?
Anywhere from 3 to 6 months, depending on genre and if I am on a deadline or not.
Are you currently working on a series?
I am currently outlining the next book in the Nina Decker series, and am writing a demon hunting series for Harlequin Nocturne. The first for that will be out August, 2011, with a short story called Heart of the Hunter, then Releasing the Hunter will be out summer of 2012.
What is your favorite thing about being an author?
Creating new worlds and characters. I love the initial process of first developing a story and its possibilities. And I like that I can work in my PJ’s.
You can find Vivi Anna at the following places:
Although Nina Decker’s father is one hundred percent human, her mother is not. She belongs to an ancient and rare race of people called the fae. But these fae are not those written about in fairytales, with pretty gossamer wings and fairy dust, no they are sinister, malevolent and unkind, dwelling in another realm called Nightfall. More prone to destroy than to create. Abandoned at the age of ten, to be raised by her father, Nina has never forgiven her mother for that or for ruining her father. A man of only sixty, he appears to be closer to eighty with a frail body and mind. He’s been fae-struck and is slowly fading away to nothing. This is one of the reasons why Nina has never gotten too close to any one man. She doesn’t want to seal his fate like her father’s has been.
But she can’t deny her fiery connection to Severin Saint Morgan, a sexy as hell werewolf and the alpha of the Vancouver wolf pack. He’s an Australian immigrant working at the university as an associate professor, and the publicized face of the werewolf species. He makes her blood boil with desire and makes her tremble with fear. But its only when her mother reappears with startling revelations about an upcoming war between the fae and the werewolves that Nina realizes that she may be a pawn for both sides.
Glimmer is a really quick read. It's a short, novella-length paranormal romance about fae and werewolves. Because of the length, you don't have to worry about long, detailed descriptions about things that aren't very important. The character of Nina is great - she's one of those independent, kick-butt kind of girls. Even though she is fae, she quickly falls for a sexy werewolf named Severin. When she first meets Severin, he is butt naked and not embarrassed in the least! He is definitely not a shy man, and he is very persistent. He wants a relationship with Nina, but what are his motives? They have a really steamy scene together - which puts this book into the 18+ category. Once this book comes to an end, you will be dying to know how the rest of the story unfolds. There is so much left unanswered - and I'm happy to hear that this is part of a series! I can't wait to know what happens next.
