Bree: She’s the powers-combined-penname of two people.
Donna: I’m Donna. I studied forensic science and nursing, but I always wanted to write. Always.
Bree: And I’m Bree. I was a computer programmer until I realized that people would pay me to write about werewolves falling in love. Now I’m never going back.
Donna: It’s difficult in very particular ways. We can’t really wing it without talking about every possibility and eventuality because we have to be on the same page or we’ll be writing all over the place. But it’s also very rewarding to have a partner.
Bree: The Southern Arcana series is very action focused paranormal romance set in New Orleans. Some people call them romantic urban fantasy–I can admit that they’re might blur genre lines a little. Each book features a paranormal couple (shapeshifters, spell casters or psychics) fighting together to save themselves or those they love, and falling in love along the way.
Donna: Cipher is about Kat confronting her past, about Andrew confronting his future, and both of them confronting what went wrong between them.
Bree: I am not good at telling people why they should read my books! So here are three things Cipher features, and if you dig those, you might like the book: a hacker heroine with dangerous psychic powers, an alpha wolf hero who’d do anything to protect her, and a magical brawl in the bayou.
Donna: I think it depends. In our world, psychic might be the way to go. In the Southern Arcana universe, I think being a spell caster or wolf might offer the most advantages.
Bree: Shapeshifter. Give me that super healing, huh? I need it, considering how clumsy I am. (And maybe I wouldn’t be clumsy then!)
Bree: We love to explore the various subgenres of romance. We’ve written contemporary werewolves (Red Rock Pass), historical werewolves (Building Sanctuary), Wild West Paranormal with steampunk themes (Bloodhounds) and even some fantasy stories with a fairy tale feel (And the Beast). We just love to write different flavors of paranormal romance. 🙂
Donna: Hmm, I think Alec. He’s hot, but forget that. He was in the Army, also worked as a mercenary, AND he’s a wolf. At least I could eat.
Bree: I’m going to say Jackson. Maybe he could use a few convenient spells to make life more comfortable. Magical air conditioning!
Bree: We have a post-apocalyptic paranormal series launching this winter, and then a lot more Southern Arcana and Bloodhounds. Wherever we go, the monsters aren’t far behind.
