Please welcome author Joyee Flynn to the blog today! She’s one of my favorite authors and I’m honored to have her here. I hope you enjoy the interview and learning a bit about her and her books.
To get started can you tell us what you are working on or have coming out?
A new series called Shifting Reality that’s different than anything I’ve ever done in that the romance isn’t the focus. It’s there, but it’s grittier, not as much roses and tenderness at the forefront of the plot. The ride has been both exciting and frustrating because it was hard to not have the central story focus on that or killing the bad guy in the end, instead it’s about the quest. So I kept feeling like I was missing something or lacking in my plot. But that was the point… To do something different and push myself!
If someone hasn't read any of your work, what book would you recommend that they start with and why?
That’s like picking my favorite child or family member. If I have to pick, I’d say Trunk and a Skunk, which is the beginning of a four set of books that all the friends are in. It’s gotten a good response, some great twists and turns, and lots of fun, plus its newer so it’s not starting way at the beginning of my writing career.
Tell us about your current release.
Virgil is the last of the Marius brothers, though the world is not ending. Lots of beloved minor characters to come but it was time to mate of Virgil. It was killing me that he was the last one left alone. The war against the demons takes and interesting turn and things really start to speed up from the last leave off point from the previous group of released books!
Where are your fans most likely to find you hanging out?
They wouldn’t find me! I very rarely leave my office or house. I really don’t. If I do it’s always for quickies to the store or just run out to pick up something. I’m pretty much always working or racing around so even if they did I’m fairly oblivious to what’s going on around me because I’m always on a mission to find or do something with limited time.
Virgil has been hiding something… But then again that isn’t anything new to him. He doesn’t fit in with the family that doesn’t even know who he really is. Learning long ago that he wasn’t normal, he strives to just fit in. Fate just doesn’t seem to have it in the cards for him.
Moreo and Foma have been searching for their other mate for centuries. Now that they think they’ve found him, Virgil’s running from them. Panicked that he’s only staying in Greece a few days and confused by his reaction, they decide to take desperate measures. After their plan backfires instead of opening up Virgil to being their mate, can they convince him they were only trying to help? Or will it be the last straw to push Virgil over the edge and leave everything behind to start over somewhere else, saying goodbye to the Mariuses forever?
