Q & A with Caroline A. Gill



What books/authors have influenced your writing?

As a teenager, I loved Charles Dickens and Edgar Allan Poe. Robert Heinlein’s Stranger in a Strange Land, David Eddings’ Belgariad series, and Jack Chalker’s River of the Dancing Gods. Recently, I devoured Wicked, the Hunger Games, and I am a Potterhead.


Tell us something you hate doing. Why? 

I love, love, love a clean kitchen sink. Conversely, I hate dishes. It’s like a personal insult. What are these? How did they get there? Who is responsible? There are many glares exchanged.


 Share a funny incident in your life.

My husband was cooking. I was sick as a dog and a wee bit whiny. He stirred the soup, put bread in the toaster, and prepared the tea. I drooped in the corner. And then, I realized five things I hadn’t done yet that absolutely had to be done in the next hour. Listing all of them off to him, like he was going to save me, I must have gone on and on but I was so tired. It was mostly delirium. 

When I finished, my husband waited a few minutes, saying nothing. “Honey?” I asked, panicking. Slowly, he turned to me and whispered: “Mistress has given Dobby a sock. Dobby is FREEEEEEEE!”


What's your pet peeve? 

That bunch of cotton swabbing that the pharmacy companies put inside pill bottles? That weirdly squeaky dryness that kind of crunches and scratches? That.


.When you are in writer mode, music or no music? If music do you have a playlist: 

It has to be music I know all the words to already. It has to be deep in my bones, so I am not aware of it:

Hooked On a Feeling, Blue Swede
My Brown Eyed Girl, Van Morrison
Rollin through the deep, Adel
Radioactive, Imagine Dragons
The Only One, Melissa Etheridge
Crying, KD Lang (Roy Orbison tune)
Pieces of You, Jewell
Good, Better than Ezra
1,2,3 Like a Bird I Sing, Tim McGraw
Big Black Horse and a Cherry Tree, KT Tunstall




Who was your favorite hero/heroine. 

Elizabeth Bennett, Pride & Prejudice, hands down.


Have you ever had one character you wanted to go one way with but after the book was done the character was totally different.

Yes, and the character development was quite shocking. His name is Cethel. He is in an unpublished manuscript at the moment but he absolutely started out as the town bully, stalker. He was horrible. And then, in mid novel, there was this moment of vulnerability, this pivot that happened because under all of his brutality, he loved one girl more than he could express. And from there on out, Cethel became heroic.


What are you working on now?

Just finished the last book of the Flykeeper Chronicles, Flying Free. Watching these books launch into the world has been so gratifying. I mean, who ever heard of Flymagic?


And I am now hip deep in writing the third book of a vampire hunter series titled Kinship. It’s not YA, but definitely paranormal, horror. 



AUTHOR BIO:
Unusual stories attract me, ones in which the reader cannot easily see the ending or most of the journey. Visiting Rome during university studies, I found a simple truth sitting on buses, traveling all over the ancient city: the joy is in the Journey, in the people I meet, not in the destination. So, I write for you. I write for sanity. I write for chocolate and really good pizza.

CHAPTER ONE
9:42 a.m., Los Angeles
Covered in bright red blood, Tommaso Fierro stumbled from his sleek black Mercedes and staggered across the litter-filled 7-Eleven parking lot, clutching the front of his sticky gray dress shirt.
“Sonofabitch,” he groaned. This can’t be happening. He’d gone through far too much, survived far too much, only to end up like this.
No. No. No. You are not turning evil again.
But then why had his turquoise eyes—the telltale sign of his godsgiven immortality—turned black? Why did his heart feel like it was being prodded with a red-hot poker?
And where the fuck did all this blood come from? It sure as hell wasn’t his.
He looked at his sticky red hands, suddenly seeing images of the dark-haired woman in his head. She was bound and gagged in his closet, screaming at him through a rope knotted between her lips.
Shit. Please don’t tell me I killed her. Because she was the one. Yes, the one. And no, he couldn’t explain why he had no clear memory of what happened, but he did remember the wave of intense desire he’d felt the moment he spotted her leaving the singles mixer last night—Wait. Was it last night? Everything was a blur after that, like watching a violent movie on a dark screen that sporadically flickered. 
Godsdammit! Wouldn’t this just be his godsdamned luck? He finally meets the woman of his dreams—his true mate—only to turn evil for no other reason than the Universe had decided to be a huge bitch and mess with everyone.
More blurry images swarmed his mind: the woman screaming and then…images of him letting her go, only to start chasing her, like a cat playing with a mouse it wanted to torment before the kill.
That is very fucked up.
Tommaso suddenly felt like his skull was splitting open. Aaagh… He shoved his fingers into his sticky short hair, pressing the sides of his head. Then his lungs began closing up. I can’t…breathe. He fell to his knees on the hard asphalt. And godsdammit, he had just gotten his awesome pin-striped slacks back from the tailor. Three hundred bucks just for the hem.
A candy apple red Mustang tore into the parking lot, nearly colliding with a parked car before coming to a tire-screeching halt a few feet in front of him. The driver door popped open and out stepped a familiar face: Zac, God of Temptation.
The sound of Zac’s heavy biker boots thumped toward Tommaso as he tried to keep his vision from blacking out.
“Wow,” said Zac in his usual cocky tone while brushing back his mane of shaggy black hair with his usual affected gesture. “You weren’t joking. You really are turning into a Maaskab—not such a great look for you, by the way.”
Maaskab were an ancient sect of powerful, bloodthirsty Mayan priests who excelled in the dark arts. With their blood-caked dreads, soulless pits for eyes, and grime-covered bodies (they believed bathing robbed them of their powers), they looked like death warmed over, reheated in a microwave, and then deep fried in evil waffle batter. And though they were talented at many malevolent things, manipulating dark energy and enslaving others to do their bidding were their claims to fame, something Tommaso knew firsthand. For two loooong fucking years, he’d been pumped full of Maaskab poisons and used to spy on the gods’ army. It was a miracle he’d escaped, but an even bigger miracle the gods had chosen to help him versus ending his life after he’d been discovered.
Only now, he wasn’t so sure that he’d been cured (or what had happened over the last twenty-four hours or why he was in a 7-Eleven parking lot covered in blood with only a vague recollection of taking his newly found mate captive). In any case, Zac had been the first name that came to mind when he’d called for help.
Perhaps not such a wise choice. Zac wasn’t known for being the most compassionate of the gods. Okay. None of the gods were compassionate. Bat-shit crazy, the whole lot of them.
Tommaso looked up at Zac, seven feet of pure conceited asshole in leather pants. And topless?
“Why aren’t you wearing a shirt?” Tommaso grumbled. Proper attire was essential, even when one was in the process of transforming into a monster, as in his case. Didn’t see him ripping off his clothes and acting uncivilized.
“Casual Friday.” Zac shrugged and then bent to help Tommaso to his feet.
Tommaso’s gaze gravitated toward the hazy figure of a petite blonde standing beside the god, wearing only a pair of enormous flowery granny panties and matching brassiere. He recognized her to be Tula, the new assistant at Immortal Matchmakers, Inc., which was run by Zac and Zac’s insane redheaded mess of a sister, Cimil—the Goddess of the Underworld.
“What’s with Tula’s outfit?” Tommaso mumbled, wondering if he wasn’t dreaming.
“Casual Friday,” Zac answered for Tula. “Did I not just explain that?”
“Okay, you two,” said Tula, in a sugary tone, “let’s get out of here before the police show and suck up another day with all their questions. I’m still trying to get them not to press charges for the singles mixer.”
Tommaso hadn’t stayed for more than a minute at that party, but he could only imagine the long list of reasons the police had been called. Things tended to end up decimated or lit on fire when a group of immortals got in a room and started drinking. Belch, aka the God of Wine and Intoxication, for example, held the all-time record for destroying the most hotels. Five hundred and twenty. All burnt to the ground. All by accident.
Tommaso winced, the pain of whatever searing through his veins becoming almost unbearable. “Take me home.”
“Who said anything about home, compadre?” Zac said. “You’re not safe to roam freely with the masses.”
Zac looked at Miss Flower-Power Panties and instructed her to retrieve Tommaso’s keys from his pocket.  
“But Zac,” Tula protested, “a man’s pocket is his private space. Next to his privates.”
She was standing in the middle of a public parking lot in broad daylight, wearing only her undergarments—albeit, very unsexy undergarments, but undergarments nonetheless—and she was concerned about improper behavior?
“My keys are in the ignition,” Tommaso groaned, the splitting pain in his head and heart only worsening. “And I’m sorry about all the blood in the car.” Sorrier than anyone could ever know. Please don’t let it be my mate’s. Please.
Zac bent his head and gave Tommaso a whiff. “Hate to break it to you, evil buddy, but if what’s in your car is the same stuff that’s on your shirt, that’s not blood. Cherry Slurpee is my guess.”
Really? Tommaso looked down at his sticky gray shirt. “I killed a woman and went to get a Slurpee? I am a monster.”
“Do you specifically remember killing someone?” Zac asked.
“No, but—”
Sirens began wailing off in the distance.
“Time to go, big man. Let’s get you to a secure location. We’ll sort it all out later.” Zac turned toward Tula, who was already getting into Tommaso’s Mercedes. “I’ll meet you back at the office.”
“Yes, sir,” she replied.
“And, woman?” Zac said, his deep voice filled with agitation.
“Yes?” she answered.
“The next time I see you, you’d better be wearing proper office apparel. We hold to certain standards at Immortal Matchmakers, Inc. Even on casual Friday.”
“For the last time, I am not going to work naked, Zac!” She slammed the driver-side door shut and zoomed out of the parking lot.
“Humans,” Zac grumbled. “So damned uppity! You know what I mean?” Zac looked at Tommaso, fishing for validation.
Tommaso frowned up at the deity, whose face was becoming a mishmash of swirls. I’m losing my mind. “Sure. Yeah. Wearing clothes is so last year.”
“I know, right?” Zac grabbed Tommaso’s arm to steady him as he began falling sideways. “All right, let’s get you off to jail.”
“You’re taking me to jail?” Tommaso stumbled along toward the Mustang, without a hope or a prayer of getting free. Not in my condition.
“Well, I’m really taking you to Cimil’s basement until we can get you moved to our real prison. But where else would I take an evil, bloodthirsty Maaskab to rot for eternity?”
Rot? Eternity? Oh hell. Maybe Zac was right; that was where he needed to go. Because if Tommaso had harmed a hair on his mate’s head, he deserved to putrefy in a dark dungeon for all time.
But what if she’s not dead? He had seen an image of him untying her and of her running away. Gods be damned. I have to find out what I did… He needed to know she was all right. Okay, and his heart demanded to see her again and beg her forgiveness.
But who was she? He’d only seen her for a moment in passing as she left the mixer—that part was clear. As for how would he go looking for her when he could barely see straight? Not to mention you’re going off to immortal jail.
There was only one person he could turn to.

Gods help me…

Book Tour Grand Finale for
The Bad Boy's Baby
By Cindi Madsen

We hope you enjoyed learning a little about Cam, Emma, and their daughter Zoey as they navigate family and the possibility of love. If you missed any of the stops, go back and check them out...

Launch - Interview with the Author

Q: What do you hope readers take with them after they’ve read The Bad Boy’s Baby?

A: I hope that they get a feel for Hope Springs and the fun characters who live there. I hope that they laugh and swoon as they watch Emma and Cam figure out how to do the co-parenting thing, and that they have a big smile on their face when they finish reading it. 

LibriAmoriMiei - Review

"This novel is a real treat, a really sweet and romantic love story. The good girl, the bad guy and an adorable two year old baby, it's really hard not to love this romance. . . I highly recommend this one!"

The Written Adventure - Hope Spring’s Town Setting

Hope Springs is a tiny town in Wyoming where everyone knows everyone, one of the town committee members has CIA-type spy skills, despite her grandmotherly exterior, and events like picnic basket auctions are a yearly thing. There’s also a quilting group that has the beat on the happenings in town, whether it’s gossip or who’s in need of meals and extra support.


With Love for Books - Review

"There are plenty of heartwarming scenes and the ending is wonderful. If you're looking for a great small town love story, this is definitely a book you should read."

Booksomereads - Review

"The Bad Boy's Baby is a fun and easy contemporary romance read that is a perfect addition to anyone's spring or summer reading pile."

Katie's Clean Book Collection - Guest Post: 10 Things a New Dad Learns

1. Keeping toddlers away from mud and water is harder than it sounds.
2. You have to spell things involving favorite foods and movies to avoid the meltdowns mentioning them without having them ready brings on.


Colorimetry - Coming Home for Cam Brantley 

Cam Brantley was known as the Hope Spring’s bad boy, right along with his brother, and his dad never had that great of a reputation, either. As soon as Cam turned eighteen he escaped town and his rough childhood to serve in the Army. His main motivation for coming home is to put hectic missions and bad memories behind him and run a mountain lodge with his brother. 

Becky on Books - Review

"The playful back-and-forth between him and Emma (especially their trash talking competitions–building furniture, fishing–that they participated in) was a whole lot of fun to read. And watching Zoey whip him into shape as a dad? Priceless.

This book practically had me smiling from start to finish."

He was always curious about the town’s golden girl who forever had her hand up in high school, all the answers on the tip of her tongue. . .


Harlie's Books - Review

"I loved their chemistry from the get go. Great dialogue, being friends and parents first and actually getting to know each other without the smexy times. Connecting on so many different levels besides Zoey, made for a great time watching them fall in love with each other."

I love talking favorite romances. The hard part is narrowing it down. But here are my favorite romances, from books to movies to TV shows. . .

Getting Your Read On - Review

"This is a great story of second chance love. . . . I enjoyed this book and it's characters. It was easy to settle in and get carried away in the fantastic drama of Cam and Emma's lives." 

deal sharing aunt - Interview

Q: What would you like my readers to know?

A: Well, I’d like to say hello-HI!-and that if you’re looking for a fun, flirty story that will hopefully make you laugh, those are the kind of books I love to write. Of course I think bookish people are some of the best people too. Finding people who can talk reading and books and getting lost in a story is always great.

Kindle and Me - Review

"I liked how realistic their issues were and how they resolved them together. I loved watching Cam turn into a family man and how he adored his daughter. I loved how Emma was grounded but also aware she had a daughter to provide for. . . . I liked the chemistry between Cam and Emma. I sighed at the end."

There are certain words that have always described Cam Brantley: Town bad boy. Soldier. Protector. But never, ever dad. Until he returns home from his latest military tour to discover the girl he had one smoking-hot night with is now mom to the adorable two-year-old Zoey. Who has his eyes.

Plenty of words could describe Emma Walker these days. Mom, dutiful granddaughter, budding designer, the town’s golden child. But when her longtime crush Cam Brantley comes back to town, she knows the perfect word to describe herself: screwed.

Cam and Emma are both shocked to discover he truly wants Zoey in his life. But Cam’s not sure he’s ready to be a dad, and Emma can’t gamble her daughter on maybes. As the long-simmering heat between Cam and Emma reaches a boiling point, he’ll have to work past his demons in order to be the man both girls need.

Daddy duty might be his toughest mission yet…

Dani Haviland, formerly of Connecticut, Arizona, and Alaska, recently semi-retired from selling tractor parts, tools, and roses. She moved to a more temperate climate in western Oregon to pursue her passions: writing, gardening, and photography. Life has changed from plowing snow with a Bobcat loader to pull-starting a walk behind weed whacker, but there are still enough hours in the day for the feisty old lady to propagate people for her novels and plants for her yard. Sharing is part of her personality, so creating books and photos to share all over the world makes her happy.
