A chat with #Paranormal #Romance author Liz Gavin @Goddessfish

FSVBT_LuckOfTheIrish_Banner copyIf you could have one paranormal ability, what would it be?
Hmm I’d have to say talking to spirits. I mean one could learn so much from them, don’t you think?

What is one thing your readers would be most surprised to learn about you?

That I’m not kinky. LOL I mean AT ALL. Hehe And some would also find it hard to believe I’m straight.

When writing descriptions of your hero/ine, what feature do you start with?

Hair and eye colors.

Are you a plotter or a pantser?

moon 2 small editOh I’m a pantser no doubt about it. So much so that my characters often hijack the plot from me. For instance, in Luck of the Irish, Paul O’Hallon character was born as a no-line, no-name character who was supposed to be a brief distraction in the story and became a huge antagonist to Declan.

Did you learn anything from writing this book? If so, what?

As a writer it was the first time characters took over the story for me and it was both an amazing and scary experience. As a person I got to know a few sides of my personality I had no idea existed. Not a bad thing, right?

Excerpt:

“I could do this forever, you know,” he whispered against her burning skin. He felt her heartbeat going wild as a vein throbbed under the tip of his tongue when he suckled a sensitive spot on the white column of her neck.

“I think we should,” she replied while her hands found the lower hem of his sweatshirt and lifted it, exposing his torso.

When her cool fingers touched the bare skin of his abdomen, close to the waistband of his sweatpants, Declan felt a scorching wave of heat radiating through his muscles. Shivers ran down his spine and he held her hands, “You know we shouldn’t.”

He stared into the crystal blue depths of her eyes and felt their pull; not much different from the sirens in the fairy tales, but he had to resist it. He would one day drown in the sea of pleasure her eyes promised. But not before she was ready for the plunge.

“I’d love to rip our clothes off and lose myself in you. You’re not ready, though. Not yet.”

She gazed into his eyes as if assessing his soul, “Our feelings grow stronger by the day. We’ve been through so much together. The difficulties we faced, and overcame, have strengthened our bond. It’s much more than physical attraction. Why do we have to wait? I want you. You want me. Are you sure I’m the one who’s not ready? Sometimes I think you’re the one running from these feelings.”

 

AUTHOR Bio and Links:

????????????????????????????????????
????????????????????????????????????

When Liz Gavin was in Second Grade – just a couple of years ago, really – her teacher told her mother the little girl should start a diary because she needed an outlet for her active and vivid imagination. She was a talkative child who would disrupt the class by engaging her colleagues in endless conversations. She loved telling them the stories her grandfather used to tell her.
Apparently, the teacher wasn’t a big fan of those stories, and Liz’s mother bought her a diary. She happily wrote on it for a couple of months. Unable to see the appeal of writing for her own enjoyment only, she gave up on it. She missed the audience her friends provided her in class. She went back to disturbing her dear teacher’s class.

Since then, she has become a hungry reader. She will read anything and everything she can get her hands on – from the classics to erotica. That’s how she has become a writer of erotica and romance, as well.

As a young adult, she participated in a student exchange program and lived in New Orleans for six months. She fell in love with the city and its wonderful inhabitants. NOLA will always hold a special spot in Liz Gavin’s heart. Nowadays, living in Brazil, Liz’s creativity has improved many times because it’s such a vibrant, gorgeous and sexy country.

Welcome to her world of hot Alpha males and naughty, independent women. Add a touch of the paranormal in the presence of some wicked souls and you’ll get the picture.
