Hello Elisabeth!  Thank you for taking part in our Gods & Goddess Week!

Thanks for inviting me to participate!

What inspired you to write about Gods & Goddesses?

I’ve always been fascinated with Greek mythology. In characters who themselves are fascinated by human behaviours and emotions and who have these incredible abilities and opportunities to do good but don’t always follow through.  For me, finding the humanity in a supernatural character is always a great treat.

What are the scenes that are the hardest for you to write?

Love scenes…no doubt. There’s pressure to make each one better than the last and for readers to connect with characters on an emotional level. I much prefer writing the fighting scenes to the love scenes.

Quick & Easy

Day or Night?
Night
Love at First Sight or Second Chances? Second Chances
Weres or Vamps? Neither—Greek heroes!
Paperbacks or Ebooks? Ebook
Past, Present or Future? Present
Reading or Writing? Writing (I live in my own little fantasy world)
Coffee or Tea? Tea
Plotter or Panster? Planster (a little of both!)
Reality or Fiction? Fiction – reality is too depressing
Laptop or Desktop? Laptop
Angel or Demon? Oh that’s hard. I have to go with demon because I love a bad boy. So much potential for growth.
Authors Choice:  Ask the readers something!  What’s your favorite Greek myth?

Now, something for the characters…

Tell us something we don’t know about your hero/ine?

Titus: I would give up everything for the ability to touch someone.

If Hollywood optioned your story, who would you like to see play you?

Natasa: What’s Hollywood?



 

TITUS—To most his gift seems like a blessing, but for him it’s a curse the other Eternal Guardian seek to exploit. One he would gladly trade for the chance to be free…even to the detriment of the world he’s bound to protect.

Eternal Guardians #6
Coming March 2013

  1. I love the story of the twins Artemis and Apollo and how protective they were over their mother (Leto). Leto was Zeus's love before he married Hera and Hera chased her out of Olympus. She gave birth to the twins on an island while being cared for by other goddesses. The twins became expert archers in order to protect her.

  7. Even though real spiders squee me out, I've always liked the story of Athena and Arachne. I have a play version of the wedding that Eris wasn't invited to that starts the Trojan War that I read with my sixth graders every year--always a fun time, because then we assign blame for starting the war and create "wanted" posters for the culprits--so that's a favorite too.
