Welcome guest author Carrie Ann Ryan

Please welcome the lovely Carrie Ann Ryan to the swamp today. Hopefully the zombies out there don’t get her until after the interview. Her newest release is part of her YUMMY werewolf series, Trinity Bound.

You can check it out on Amazon HERE.

She’ll be giving away a Swag Pack to one lucky commenter, just answer the question in the post.

Carrie Ann Ryan is a bestselling paranormal and contemporary romance author. After spending too much time behind a lab bench, she decided to dive into the romance world and find her werewolf mate – even if its just in her books. Happy endings are always near – even if you have to get over the challenges of falling in love first.

Her first book, An Alpha’s Path, is the first in her Redwood Pack series. She’s also an avid reader and lover of romance and fiction novels. She loves meeting new authors and new worlds. Any recommendations you have are appreciated. Carrie Ann lives in New England with her husband and two kittens.

What is a typical day for you like writing-wise?

I usually work the day job in the morning. Then I either write 2,000 words, edit, revise…something having to do with my WIP after dinner. After that I make sure my promo for the next day is all ready to go LOL. Very busy, but I just got a new workspace and its working well!

How fun. The only dedicated space I have is the driver’s seat of my car, LOL. Call me Taxi Mom.

What hobby do you enjoy when not writing?

Does reading count? LOL. I pretty much only do that or cook when I’m not writing LOL.

What would you do with $1 million dollars (tax-free, of course)?

Buy a house with an office for me and rooms for the kiddos that hubby and I will have! Then we’ll do the job we want to do. Like just writing and enjoying myself. Oh, and I’d buy a car. A new one. I’ve never owned one LOL.

If you could be any animal, what would it be (real or magical)? Why?

Wolf! I love them. Can’t you tell? They are so eathy and in tune to the world. Plus they are so beautiful!

I love wolves. You’re totally right, they’re gorgeous.

If you could be any supernatural creature, what would it be and why?

Either a werewolf for the above reason, or an angel b/c I want to fly.

If you could time-travel, where would you go and why?

Back to meet a highlander. Oh yeah. I want one for myself! LOL

Hey, bring me one back too, okay? 🙂

Why are manhole covers round?

Because the man who designed them was drunk and bent with a piece of chalk and tried to drawn a square, but only ended up spinning in circles. (cute? LOL)

Do you have any upcoming news you’d like to share?

That sounds like a question my Dad always asks. He answers the phone and asks “Any news? Are you pregant?” Give me a couple of years, Dad. LOL. However, in terms of writing…

Trintiy Bound is now available and is the third book in the series. Adam’s book, Enforcer’s Redemption will be later this year.

Dust of My Wings, book 1 in the Dante’s Circle series, is my current WIP and is an angel book that will be out this summer as well.

Oh, and I have a super sekrit present for y’all coming soon. *grins*

And the Fast Five:

Coffee or Chocolate? Chocolate.

Jewelry: Precious gems or gold? Gems. I don’t look good in Gold.

Beach or Mountains? Beach. Less people. LOL

Early Morning or Late Night? Late night. I’m a bear in the morning.

Fruit or Veggies? Fruit. I love sweets.

And last, but not least, where can we find you on the internet:

Latest Book Title: Trinity Bound

Release Date: March 30th, 2012

Buy Link(s): Check out Trinity Bound HERE

Hannah Lewis, a rare earth witch, is taken from the only life she’s ever known. Held at her will by a sadistic wolf, she almost gives up hope that she’d ever see her real life again. But as her fellow captive, a werewolf named Reed, tries to calm her fears, she begins to feel a spark of something she never thought she’d feel – love. But is Reed, alone, enough to get her out of this dark basement so she can move on with her life?

Reed Jamenson, the artist of a werewolf Pack of Alpha males, knows instinctually that Hannah is his mate. Thus, despite their imprisonment, he will do all to protect her and then worry about their hearts. But is he strong enough to find a way for both of them to escape? And why does he feel as though something else is missing?

Josh Kolb, an ex-military human, stumbles upon Reed and Hannah and finds he must trust this new world of supernatural beings to survive. But that desire will lead the three to a triangle of attraction that will test the boundaries they all possess and its consequences in defeating the enemy. Can they all trust one another to save themselves and life as they know it? Even at the cost of their own hearts?

And, for a taste of the story:

Snowflakes stuck to Josh’s eyelashes and he bat them away. A strong gust blew past him, the cold chilling his bones. He surveyed his surroundings, taking a silent step through the undergrowth. Tall trees reached to the sky, blocking whatever sunlight filtered through the dreary storm clouds. Their limbs heavy with leaves and the extra weight of collecting snow drooped down, dropping snow bundles on his shoulder and in one unfortunate incident, his face. If only he could have Found these two in the nice spring or cool fall months. No, he had to search for them in the onset of winter and the beginning of what looked to be a deadly snow storm. Lucky guy.

When he left his bench on Main Street, he had quickly gone home to fetch some of his equipment. He dressed warmer, grabbed a pack with extra clothes for Reed and the witch, some food and water, and weapons. Lots of weapons. Knifes and blades of various shapes and sizes adorned his body. He had his SIG strapped to his side, with extra ammo in his belt. Sadly he didn’t have any silver, but lead would at least slow the beasts down if they came after him.

And they would. Because as he followed the trail in his mind to this remote bunker, his sense of unease swelled to a staggering sensation. Crap, he might not make it this time. He was but one man. One human at that. But looking down at the lair that held two people that he needed to find, he set aside those worries and the creeps it gave off. The two of them were more important – for some unknown reason. And if anyone truly knew him, they would know that it was freaking hard to give Josh the creeps. But he ignored those chills as well.

  7. I’d have to say the favorite thing about werewolves (at least the ones in romance novels, lol) is their primitive side that makes them very masculine/alpha male. Congrats on the release Carrie. Already starting reading Trinity Bound and I have to admit it’s pretty intense.

    • Also, just so I have a chance at winning, what I love best about werewolves is the fact that they seem to have a constant inner battle between their animal and their human sides. Most people don’t have this issue, but they can relate with the stress of having to face their own daily inner battles.

  17. What I love about the werewolves is the ideal of being about to shift into animal form and run wild through the woods…the freedom of being able to indulge in your wild side.

    I love all shifter but wolf shifter’s have to be my favorite. Wolve are one of my favorite wild animals. It’s about how protective they are, how they mate for life, and take care of their family. I love wolf shifters because they seem to be the best of both human and wolf, when they are the hero/heroine of course!
