Welcome to Dawn’s Reading Nook, Sandra Sookoo. Please let my cabana boys/girls get you a drink and make yourself at home. Comfortable? Great…now let’s get down to business.

Q: Tell us a little about yourself. What you do, either for a living or for fun or both?

I’m a year shy of 40, and I’m a stay at home wife…or domestic goddess if you’d rather. I write full-time in between doing laundry, cleaning the house and running typical errands. On the side and in my spare time, I love to bake and cook. Or talk about Disney.  I also love visiting the local zoo.

Q: Are you a by-the-seat-of-your-pants kind of writer, or do you have to use an outline to put your collective thoughts into some semblance of common sense?
For me, I definitely use an outline. I’m a big fan of plotting. It keeps me from getting lost or writing myself into a corner.

Q: Tell us all about your latest or upcoming release. What inspired it?
My book is called Ricochet, and it’s an action-packed sci-fi romance.  Originally, I’d started off writing it for a group antho, but when that project fell apart, I kept writing and soon my planned short became a full length piece of fiction. I kinda like to refer to it as a Mario Kart project LOL It’s that frenetic.

Q: If you had super powers, what would they be? Why?
Super speed. Why? So I could run errands and do chores in record time and maybe write even more!
Q: What genre haven’t you tried yet but want to in the future?
LOL Since I already write across all kinds of genres, I don’t know. I could try my hand at the children’s market, but I don’t think that’s the way I want to go. I guess it would have to be cozy mysteries. I just might do it later in my career.

Q: What’s a fun fact about you? Something unique, a particular talent?
I like to hand paint ceramic Christmas villages and made beaded bookmarks.

Q: What is one thing readers might be surprised to know about you?

I don’t like to eat steak or drink coffee. I cheerfully make those things but never ingest them.


Q: Were your stories secret projects or were you able to be open with your family and friends about your writing?

Oh, I’m open about them. The fam doesn’t read my work, especially if it has sex in it, as they think I’m going to hell.  The hubs will read my stuff but is uncomfortable reading sex scenes lol


Q: Do you have any weird writing habits?

Not really. I usually like to have gummi bears around when I write.

Q: What's your favorite genre to read?
Cozy mysteries and thrillers like Jurassic Park (which I read every year)

Q: What authors can be found in your library of books (print, audio or e-books)?

I have a wide collection of authors in all genres. I do try and make a point to buy lesser known authors—not just the best seller authors.


Q: If you could travel anywhere in the world (money is no object), where would you go? Why? And for how long?

Hawaii. Why? Because it’s in the US and I’ve always wanted to visit. I’d stay as long as it took to see everything.


Q: Do you have any obsessions? What are they?

I have to have fine point pens and wide ruled paper as well as notebooks.  Lots of notebooks.


Q: Is there anything you’re currently working on that you can give us a taste of?

Besides the braised beef?  Erm, you mean writing-wise! Right now, I’m just coming off a month and a half of writing downtime so it’s writing my fourth modern-day fairy tale as well as continuing work on another full length sci-fi book.  In between those, I’m working on a contemporary novella.


Q: When creating your characters, do you have models in mind or are they totally fictional?

A lot of the time they’re fictional.  At times I’ll use traits of people I know, or have known or observed out somewhere, but for Ricochet, the model for Stratton was the male lead on the now-cancelled USA show Under Covers. His name is Boris Kodjoe


Q: Are you in control of your characters or do they control you?

I think it’s a 50/50 split at times. Sometimes they do and say things I wasn’t privy to—and that’s a good thing!


Q: If you came with a warning label, what would it say?

Watch out, I shoot from the hip. You might laugh, you might cry but you’ll always have a good time.


Q: Please tell us where we can find you on the web.

Ricochet by Sandra Sookoo
Buy HERE

 
Willa Rayes, only daughter of a legendary Lingorian fighter pilot, can fly any ship in the galaxy. Better than her brothers, in fact. But does that get her any respect? Not as long as she has breasts. Winning the Nebulon Trike will not only force her family to notice her, it’ll be her declaration of independence from men in general.

Then she meets her race partner, Stratton Sinnet. Arrogant and chauvinistic, he ignites her libido like no man ever before. And threatens to send her well-planned strategy straight to hell.

A bounty hunter by trade, Sin enters the Trike for one reason: money. Somewhere among the racers his quarry is hiding, but he’s not worried. He always gets his man, and winning the race will be a nice bonus. It sure would be a hell of a lot easier, though, if he wasn’t saddled with a know-it-all navigator who’s getting on his last nerve—and under his skin.

As the checkpoints go by and the danger escalates, the fight for control, the lead—and satisfaction—approaches supernova heat. Burning away their resistance, and the tough shells that protect their one vulnerability…their hearts.

 
Excerpt:
She took a deep breath, and the smile flickered again. Beneath the sweat and nerves of the crowd, the sharp scent of rocket fuel permeated the air. It blended with mechanics’ grease and heated electrical wiring and the organic smell of brand-new leather upholstery, topped off by paint fumes. The ships that would be employed during the race were housed not fifty yards away, and her fingers itched to familiarize herself with the steering mechanisms and instrument panels of the one that would be hers to command during the race. 

This was where she felt most comfortable; this was where home would always be, here amidst spacecraft of every shape and size. Being one with her ship, accepting no excuses, executing each command with inherent confidence, always in control with no margin for error. It was the best feeling in the world. 

Excitement shot through Willa’s stomach as she craned her neck in an attempt to see above the heads and shoulders of the beings clustered in front of her. Being five and a half feet tall in a galaxy populated with much taller beings might have put her at a disadvantage. However, she played her height challenge well; it made her faster and able to squeeze into some ships the others couldn’t hope to fit into. Unfortunately, the lack of height meant the extra inches filled out her breasts and hips, making her a universal object of male appreciation. 

Not that she cared. She wasn’t here for a hookup. She was here to crush egos.

Meet Sandra Sookoo...

Welcome Brita Addams today & a Contest


CONTEST INFORMATION IS AT END OF POST

Welcome to Dawn’s Reading Nook, Brita Addams. Please let my cabana boys/girls get you a drink and make yourself at home. Comfortable? Great…now let’s get down to business.

So tell us about yourself. What got you interested in writing? Who are your publisher(s)?

Hi Dawn and thank you for having me. I grew up in upstate New York and after I graduated from high school, I married (just 8 months later) and began following my military husband to various duty station over the course of the next six years. We lived in Waukegan, Illinois, Keflavik, Iceland and finally, New Orleans, Louisiana, where I lived until three years ago. Now we live about two and half hours from NOLA. I've been married to my husband for not nearly enough years, we have three children, and I love to read and write.

I've always written, so I couldn't say any one thing that got me interested. I love telling stories and I love history, so the combination of the two is like nirvana for me.

I'm published, thankfully, with Noble Romance, Silver Publishing, Amber Allure, and Riptide Publishing.

How did you start your writing career?

By happenstance, really. Though I've written all my life, I never had the nerve to take that step and seek publication. When I read about e-publishing, I thought maybe I'd have the opportunity to share my writing and the rest is history. Noble Romance bought the first book in the Sapphire Club series, Serenity's Dream and suggested that I had the makings of a series there. Lord Decadent's Obsession and Chocolate, Tea, and the Duchess followed and that series has been very good to me.

Tell us about your favorite character from your books.

I love Phillip Allard from Chocolate, Tea, and the Duchess. Phillip is a duke, whose life is steeped in tradition and obligation. He must marry to secure the title and fortune. However, Phillip has a secret that keeps him from even thinking about marriage, until a marriage-minded young woman puts him in a position that makes him honor-bound to marry her.

Phillip, however, refuses to forsake his need for masculine companionship and to her credit, Felicity understands and embraces Phillip for who he is. She's truly a lovely young woman who feels as badly for putting Phillip in such a position as she does for herself.

Enter Alexander Chilton, the man who shows both Phillip and Felicity what real love is.

Phillip is dark and complicated and was extremely fun to write.

Tell us about your current/upcoming release. What inspired it?

My current release is Demands of the Heart, a Regency historical. It is the story of Richard Fanshaw and Victoria Bramhill, who discover each other very early in their adult lives and fall madly in love. Richard dashes off to purchase a home for them and Victoria is breathlessly awaiting his return. However, the young lovers a thwarted by an evil man who hates Richard and steps into an opportunistic situation—Victoria's father is deeply in debt and sinking faster than a stone.

Greed convinces her father to accept the evil man's marriage suit, and Victoria's freedom is bought at a very steep price to her and Richard's happiness.

Happenstance has them crossing each other's path and sets in motion Richard's need for revenge—he's never told the truth, as Victoria was forbidden to ever speak to him again.

I don't know what inspired it really, other than my love for romance novels in general and the idea of two people having loved once and being torn apart has always appealed to me for some perverse reason.

A bit of trivia: The cover for this book happens to be cover model Jimmy Thomas' fifteen-hundredth cover. That number was the one Jimmy needed to break the all-time record for the highest number of romance novel cover appearances for a male model. I'm quite pleased to have been a part of that.



If you could visit any time and place, where and when would it be and why?
I love to travel and for me to be able to time travel would be a wonderful thing! I'd make it England in the period that I love to write about, the Regency Era, which spanned from 1811 to 1820. It was a very short period, but so different from others in so many ways.
The social mores were strict, though not as strict as the upcoming Victorian period, and yet the Prince Regent was a bit of a scamp, who tended to inspire the roguish behavior we readers of Regency novels absolutely love.
I would need air-conditioning though and a few other conveniences, so the visit would be short and sweet. However, that would be a journey of a lifetime!
Who's more fun to write: bad boys or perfect gentlemen and why?

I think a combination of both—perfect gentlemen who harbor bad boy tendencies. Hmm, I never thought of my heroes that way before. Thanks, Dawn!

This isn't a knock on the contemporary genre or on any authors, just my own opinion. I love historicals and therefore, perfect gentlemen, because I'm not fond of blatant promiscuity and the bar line, "Hey, baby, wanna f**k?" Perfect gentlemen have finesse, they know how to treat their ladies or their gentlemen, and still get what they're after.

I was raised with the mantra—"Act like ladies and gentlemen," so I think I've translated that into my writing. However, close the bedchamber door, and it's an all out free-for-all. The cravat drops at the door. J

If you could meet any fictional character, who would it be and what would you do together?

Hmm, great question! I think I'd love to meet Westcliff from Lisa Kleypas' It Happened One Autumn. He's one of those characters that though I read the book ages ago, he lives on in my head. I don't know what we'd do together, perhaps have a spot of brandy and chat about how to tame his wife. He's fascinating, educated, and rather stern. I'd probably just sit and stare in total amazement.

Out of all your books, do you have a favorite one? If not, then which one is closest to your heart?

I suppose I love them all in varying degrees. Each inspired something in me to write them, you know. I do love Her Timeless Obsession, which I wrote under the name Tina Ordone, because it incorporates my love of genealogy and has an element of time travel, though it's actually more thought travel. It's a love story that spans decades and has an effect on many generations.

The other one is An Evening at the Starlight, which is quite different from any I've ever written. It's about an older man who, when confronted with having to advise a young man on his marital problems, relates the story of a love that wouldn't die. There's no sex in it, just a hint, because it simply wasn't appropriate for the story. It's based, quite loosely, on a story from my own family tree, as told to me by the subject herself, some fifty-two years after the fact.

For me it's heartwarming and shows the power of true love.

What character out of all your books is the closest to your personality?

I would have to say none. Honestly, I'm a rather bland person compared to my characters. Then again, I think some of my traits have to inadvertently come through. I'm nurturing, as is Felicity in Duchess and doggedly determined, as is Victoria in Demands of the Heart. As for my other heroines, not so much. They have it all over me.

Anything else you would like to add?

I'd like to share the blurb from Demands of the Heart with everyone and direct them to where they can find an excerpt, if they are so inclined.

Blurb:

In 1807, idealistic Richard Fanshaw and Victoria Bramhill are consumed with each other, their young love blooming amidst a series of carefree soirees and stolen moments.

But jealousy and greed turn what they have into something ugly and twisted. They're wrenched apart amid vile lies and deceit when Victoria's freedom is bought to pay her father's debts.

Six years later, Victoria is widowed and a cynical Richard has just returned to England after years in India.  Having been given the impression that Victoria's marriage was a happy one, a chance meeting renews Richard's anger over Victoria's betrayal and sets in motion a plan for revenge.

One must answer the demands of the heart.

In a trendy San Francisco art gallery, out-of-towner Vin Vanbly witnesses an act of compassion that compels him to make investment banker Perry Mangin a mysterious offer: in exchange for a weekend of complete submission, Vin will restore Perry’s “kingship” and transform him into the man he was always meant to be.

Despite intense reservations, Perry agrees, setting in motion a chain of events that will test the limits of his body, seduce his senses,  and fray his every nerve, (perhaps occasionally breaking the law) while Vin guides him toward his destiny as ”the one true king.”

Even as Perry rediscovers old grief and new joys within himself, Vin and his shadowy motivations remain enigmas: who is this offbeat stranger guiding them from danger to hilarity to danger? To emerge triumphant, Perry must overcome the greatest challenge alone: embracing his devastating past. But can he succeed by Sunday’s sunrise deadline? How can he possibly evolve from an ordinary man into King Perry?

A Bittersweet Dreams title: It's an unfortunate truth: love doesn't always conquer all. Regardless of its strength, sometimes fate intervenes, tragedy strikes, or forces conspire against it. These stories of romance do not offer a traditional happy ending, but the strong and enduring love will still touch your heart and maybe move you to tears.

Suddenly the lovers find themselves faced with a heartbreaking choice: brave a world in which their love is impossible or face the evil that lives in the snowy heart of a cold Carpathian mountain.

Mårten Larsson is one of the richest bloodsuckers ever, but his unlife isn’t exactly a flight in the park.

Suddenly Mårten has to juggle politics, his royal wardrobe, and this newfangled thing called “e-mail.” And his German still sucks.

But hey, Mårten can handle it. After all, he (sort of) survived World War I, being married to two voraciously horny vampires (at the same time), and life as a sniper taking out the most dangerous vamps in history. A little responsibility should be no problem… right?
