Hey everyone! I am so excited to be hosting the Night Demon Blog tour today and do i have a treat for you!! An interview with Lisa!!!
Hi Lisa! Thank you so much for answering some of my questions I am so excited to be part of the Night Demon blog tour.
I think my first question would have to be, what inspired you to be a writer? And who were your biggest inspirations? – My biggest inspirations are probably Anne Rice, Kelley Armstrong, Stephen King, Dean Koontz and the list goes on… J
Where did you get the idea for the night series? – I had a palm reader in New Orleans tell me I was going to be a famous writer someday, and although I’d written for fun for years, I’d never tried to write a book before. I knew I wanted to write some kind of vampire story, but I wanted to set it on the West Coast in my hometown of San Diego. I started researching the oldest civilization in the Americas, the Mayans, and my Night Walkers came to life!
Which book in the series has been your favourite and why? Oh I don’t think I can pick a favourite! LOL That’s like choosing your favourite child… But I can say that when I write each book, it becomes my favourite while I’m writing it. I think Night Demon definitely expands the Night Walker world and I love that aspect for sure…
Who was your favourite character in the night series and why? Ha! How about I tell you my favourite part of each one? J I love the way Calisto, from Night Walker, expresses himself with music. There’s something very sensual and loyal about him that I will always love. Kane, from Night Thief, makes me swoon! He has so much swagger and while he’s charming, he’s also powerful and dangerous. Love that! And Lukas, the hero from Night Demon, won me over with his smile. He’s so tortured in Night Walker and Night Demon, that when he finally stops pushing Gretchen away and starts to smile and laugh, it made my heart soar.
My favourite scene in Night Thief comes right after the first love scene. Rita blurts out “You are most definitely a god” and Kane laughs and admits being with her is the first time he has felt like one in centuries… I could hear his laughter and love for her in my head.
My favourite scene in Night Demon is when Lukas is trying to get Gretchen from Cozumel back to the mainland to her Jeep. The only way to get there is for him to shift into his spirit animal and fly her across but Gretchen is terrified of heights. He swears to her he will never let her fall. I fell in love with him from that scene on… I also loved the ending of the book. No spoilers, but Lukas at the end of Night Demon made the whole book worth writing for me!
What is next for you? I’m finishing up edits on the first book in a new series for me! Moonlight (Book 1in the Moon Series) will be out in July… It’s a shifter series with the Pack in Reno and a mysterious government contractor with jaguar shifter assassins. The first book has a West Side Story feel to it… Can’t wait for you to read it!
In October the second Moon Series book will be out, Hunter’s Moon, and in December I have a standalone book, Beg Me To Slay…. Busy year ahead!
Thank you so much far answering my questions, happy writing =)
Thanks for the blog spot Nic!!! I’m so glad you’re enjoying the Night Series!
Night Demon (Night Series #2)
Deep within the Yucatan jungle a demon has awakened...
Gretchen Finch's job would be much easier if she weren't alone in the jungle with a brilliant recluse whose every glance sets her on fire. But the more she focuses on her work, the closer she gets to unlocking the mysteries of a terrible creature - the Night Demon - that threatens the world as she knows it. Though her scientific mind tells her it's impossible, she's beginning to believe the ancient Mayan tales as the sinister jungle comes alive around her.
Lukas Smith has spent hundreds of years searching for answers to his immortal Night Walker nature. As a series of ancient glyphs become clear, he's about to find out more than he'd ever hoped, but the more he learns, the more his fate intertwines with the Night Demon, and the harder it becomes to hide his immortal secret from the beautiful, intelligent Gretchen.
Together, they must find a way to stop the inexplicable violence and mass destruction surging across the earth before the Night Demon destroys more than just mankind.
