Today as part of her virtual book tour we have an interview with author Mary Abshire. Have you always wanted to be a writer or was this something that just happened? I wanted to a long time ago, but didn't feel like I could. Paying the bills meant working a full time job and other priorities claimed hold of my life. When did you start writing? I started writing in my early twenties, but never pursued a career. About 2 years ago, i started writing full length novels and haven't stopped. What was your first published work? Claiming the Evil Dead Tell us about your current book? Catching an Evil Tail came out in Feb, and Fighting Evil came out 3/21. Fighting Evil picks up where Catching an Evil Tail left off. What was the inspiration behind this book? I didn't really have any. I just knew I wanted to write a novel with Jessie and a werewolf that tempted her. Can you give us a little glimpse into the book, perhaps a part of one of your favorite scenes? There's a scene where the Alpha surprises Jessie and, well, things heat up. Mr. Green eyes really tempts her. What are you working on now? My current WIP is the 4th Soul Catcher novel. Jessie and Drake are together, on the run from the VETOV. It has a lot of twists, but a very nice ending. When you’re not writing what are your favorite hobbies or entertaining activities? Reading. Once in a while I'll sit in front of the television to watch a season of Fringe or True Blood. Sometimes I go to the movies, but not very often. What would readers be surprised to learn about you? I'm a fan of 80's new wave music and trance music of today. My husband and I go to trance clubs in Chicago on occasion.
