Interview with romance author Patricia Leever

I had the privilege to review Patrica's new book Cat O' Nine Tails and loved it. So  I wanted to share more about her and the book with you guys. I hope you enjoy the interview.



Hello Patricia. First I want to thank you for doing this interview. Would you tell everyone a little about yourself?

Patricia- Let’s see I’m the stay-at-home mom of 4; I’ve been married to the same guy for 20 years. I like to find the humor in everyday life because being nasty takes up too much energy. I have a degree in high school, a master’s in geekdom and I’m working on my doctorate in life.

Laurie-Would you tell us some of your favorite authors?

Patricia- Naturally I adore all of the amazing authors in my Omnific family, they are all amazingly talented. One of my all time favorites, in romance is Paula Quinn, she was where my romance adventure began and I haven’t looked back. I own every single book she’s ever written and will own every book she plans to release in the future. I also enjoy the writing styles of Elizabeth Hoyt, Stephanie Laurens, Mary Jo Putney and Lisa Klepas.

Laurie- What was the first thing you did when you heard your book was being published?

Patricia- Cried like an idiot LOL.

Laurie- As you know I read your Cat O’ Nine Tails and really enjoyed it. Would you tell those who haven’t read your book a little about it?

Patricia- Well, let’s see, it’s a fast paced love story between a female pirate and the man that has been sent to hunt her down. There is quite a bit of humor, sexy times, a battle at sea and surprises that hopefully you don’t see coming ;)

Laurie- Why a woman as a pirate in this era?

Patricia- Why not? I know it’s more common for the man to be the pirate, wooing all of the ladies in every port but why can’t it be a woman using her feminine wiles to make her way in the world? She’s just doing the best with what she has to work with.

Laurie-What was the biggest hurdle you had to do in writing Cat O’ Nine Tails?

Patricia- Finding the time to write and after stalling 2/3 of the way through, finding the muse to pick it back up again and finish it.

Laurie- Do you have a favorite character out of the whole book? If so who?  And why?

Patricia- Well, of course I love Aeron and Orrin, but I think my favorite is Kale because he was fun to write. Aeron and Orrin were fun too, but there was a humor in Kale that only worked with him.

Laurie- Where is your writing taking us to next?

Patricia- Next, if all goes well, I’ll be taking you in a different genre! Yeah, I’m a genre jumper. I’m working on polishing this next piece up to present to my publisher. This is an Urban Fantasy/Paranormal Romance about a 134 year old demon hunter in present day Los Angeles named Evelyn Write. I’m also working on a sequel to Cat O’ Nine Tails that picks up with William’s story.

  7. First thanks to Laurie for introducing me to a new to me author, 2nd thanks to Patricia for writing a pirate story with the lead being female. It makes me remember my favorite movie with Geena Davis playing a lusty Pirate wench with Matthew Modine as her reluctant lover/sometimes adversary.

  8. I agree with Jackie B from Texas, the premise reminds me of that Geena Davis movie. That was an awesome movie & this book sounds just as good. Thanks for the interview!

Moments of Beauty
J.B. Heller
Publication date: March 23rd 2017
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance
Ugly. It’s the only word to describe my upbringing. It drove my need to capture every moment of beauty I could find. A glimpse of a mother’s love. A feather floating in the breeze. A ray of sunshine emerging on a rainy day.  And then there was her, Eliza Quinn, she signified everything I didn’t deserve. She showed me more beauty than I ever thought possible. And I took it all, despite knowing I was going to leave her, and never come back.  Leaving her five years ago was my biggest mistake, and my greatest regret. Now I need to make amends. I thought leaving her was the hardest thing I’d ever have to do, but that was before I knew I had to win her back.Add to Goodreads
