So get to know Christina in the interview below and then enter this weeks contest and maybe you will win a copy of the new release, Black Night!
Amber - Welcome to Amberkatze's Book Blog! It is great to have you here as a guest! Could you start things off by telling us a little about your new release Black Night?
Christina - Well, things are not going great for Maddy. Lucifer is manipulating her into a diplomatic mission to the faerie court, and her oh-so-annoying unwanted fiancé Nathaniel is coming along. Unfortunately, the last ambassador was beheaded in front of the entire court for a breach of etiquette and as we know, Maddy has a lot of trouble keeping her mouth shut, especially when she ought to!
Amber - Black Night is the second book in the Black Wings Series. What can we expect from the new installment and what do we have to watch out for?
Amber - If your books were going to be made into a film or TV series, who could you see playing the lead roles?
Christina – I have always pictured Michael Fassbender as Gabriel. He’s probably the only character who looks like a real person in my head. When I first heard Gabriel’s voice it was Michael Fassbender’s voice.
I have a lot of trouble seeing any particular actress as Maddy, mostly because Maddy is a little bit overweight and every actress seems to be super-skinny!
I’d like Richard Armitage as J.B. He’s so good at walking that line between good and bad onscreen.
Amber - Will there be more books in the series? Are you working on anything else?
Christina – Right now there will be six books in the series. If it seems like there is more story to tell after six then there may be more.
Amber - Is there a paranormal creature you just don't like, and would never use in your books?
Christina – I like reading other author’s stories about vampires but I don’t feel that I have a lot to add in that direction, so I don’t really see vampires becoming a big part of Maddy’s world.
Amber - What paranormal creatures are you dying to fit into a story but you haven't managed to fit in yet?
Amber - A lot of authors are writing now in both adult and YA genres. Have you considered writing a YA book?
Christina – I think it takes real skill to write a great YA novel and I don’t think that I have that skill. I love to read so many YA authors and I’m just in awe of how they can make a book accessible to kids and adults.
Amber - What have you been reading and watching lately?
Christina – I don’t watch a ton of TV but I did watch “Game of Thrones” on HBO and loved it. It’s the first time I’ve actually committed to watching a TV show every week since “Deadwood” got cancelled (still annoyed about that…grrrr).
I just finished reading Janet Evanovich’s “Smokin’ Seventeen” and now I’m reading a book called “The Male Brain” by Louann Brizendine. I like to switch back and forth between fiction and nonfiction.
Amber - What's your favorite paranormal movie of all time?
Christina – “Night of the Living Dead”, with “The Host” and “The Frighteners” coming in at a close second and third.
Amber - And to finish, If you could be any famous person, alive or dead, who would you be? and why?
Christina – I always think that famous people’s lives are probably not as great as they look from a distance, so I think I’ll just stick to being me :)
