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.
