#ThrowbackThursday A Trip to Mexico

I’ve been very lucky that my day job has let me visit Mexico on a number of occasions. I’ve been to Mexico City, Guadalajara and Tequila. Fascinating places, great food and good-hearted people.

I’ve been fascinated by the Aztecs and the Maya since I read The Conquest of Mexico and Peru as a kid. It’s no wonder that I decided to set two of my books in Mexico: Aztec Gold and The Fifth Kingdom. The Fifth Kingdom in particular is one of my favorite books and it features the Sun Stone, a symbol of Mexico, in the story. That’s the Sun Stone in the bottom left of this photo! It was truly a pleasure to share with you how the Aztecs lived and their culture, as well as their gods and goddesses.

P.S. – My fascination with the Maya was in large part responsible for inspiring the Sin Hunters and the special powers that you first see in THE LOST.

#ThrowbackThursday Ultimate Fan Girl Moment with Nora Roberts

There are some moments as a writer and reader that you will never forget. One of those moments was being invited to sign at the Turn the Page bookstore and sitting next to Nora Roberts at the signing! Well, sitting next to Nora’s fabulous son and assistant at the signing. Afterward, I got a chance to get a picture with her and chat with her a bit. She is such an open and lovely person. It really meant a lot to me then and it still does. Here are some pictures from that day and to prove I really did sit next to her, you can see the plaid shirt in both shots!

As for why I’m holding the plush beagle doll, I had a beagle named Spotty in THE LOST and he was keeping me company on my trip up to the 2012 RITA Awards.

#WriteWed Inspiration for the Sin Hunters Series

AlphaImmortalsWow! I can’t believe that it’s been five years since the first release in the SIN HUNTER series and now I’ve re-released both SINS OF THE FLESH and STRONGER THAN SIN.

Not to mention that THE LOST will be part of the fabulous ALPHA IMMORTALS box set which will be available in early October.

So what inspired the series? For starters, my love of science. I was, and still am, a science nerd. I love watching all those shows on the Discovery Channel and reading about what’s happening, especially with genetics. It’s what led me to use genetic engineering gone wrong as the basis for the first two books.

My love of history combined with my love of science inspired the next two books, THE LOST and THE CLAIMED.

As a kid I avidly read all kinds of history books, especially ones dealing with the history of the Americas. It’s how I got the idea to incorporate Mayan practices and the Quechan language to create the otherwordly Hunters like Adam and Christopher.

What’s going to inspire the next one, THE SHATTERED? Yes, I do plan on writing another one. So many of you have been writing to ask about what happens to Sammie and Ryan and they will get their story. Plus, you’ll get to see more of the Carrera clan and find out how they are all doing.

Back to what will inspire it: I don’t know. It’ll definitely be a meld of the first two in the series with the last two. Genetic engineering meets Hunters with special powers. I’ve just got to figure out how who is going to be the ultimate villain and what they want with the Carreras and the Hunters!

#ThrowbackThursday Caridad & Selina SINS OF THE FLESH #FreeRead

As I mentioned yesterday, I’ve re-released SINS OF THE FLESH and please remember, if you bought the print book from Amazon, you can now get the e-book for FREE!

SINS OF THE FLESH (and the other novels in the Sin Hunters series) would not have been possible without my fabulous editors at Grand Central Publishing, Selina McLemore and Latoya Smith. THANK YOU!

This is a photo of Selina and me at the 2012 RT Convention! Selina was a wonderful supporter of my work and if you’re wondering if she inspired the name for Adam’s mom, you’d be totally correct.

#ThrowbackThursday My Fan Girl Moment with Nora Roberts

Nora Roberts is one of my favorite writers, not only because she is AMAZING, but because she is such a nice, down-to-earth individual. I’ve always seen her treat her fans like friends and never ungraciously.

I got my most amazing fan girl moment when I was invited to take part in a book signing at the Turn the Page Bookstore where I got to sit next to Nora!! OMG! It was all I could do to contain my squee of excitement.

And being a gracious lady, she was willing to pose with me and Spottie who was hanging out with me on my way to the 2012 RITA party where I was a finalist in the paranormal category for THE LOST.
