Interview and Giveaway - Her Black Wings by One A.J. Norris

Can you tell readers a little bit about yourself and what inspired to write in this particular genre?

I’m from southeastern Michigan and live with my husband and son. I love going to the movies in my free time and watching my son play baseball. I write romantic suspense and paranormal romance. I first fell in love with paranormal after discovering the BDB books and have been hooked ever since. 

Please tell us about your latest release. 

Her Black Wings is about a girl who wasn’t the best person but at the end of her life she makes the ultimate sacrifice and earns a chance to redeem her soul. She falls for the angel sent to aid her but he has issues of his own. She has to figure out if she’s strong enough to save herself.

Did you find anything really interesting while researching this or another book? 

I did some research on sky-diving and found some interesting stories about people’s experiences. It seemed like they either hated it or loved it and couldn’t wait to do it again.

Do you write in different genres? 

Yes. I also write romantic suspense.

Do you find it difficult to write in multiple genres? 

I don’t find it difficult just different. I have to adjust my mindset a bit because in a non-paranormal world you have to stick to the laws of nature. And that sometimes isn’t as fun.

When did you consider yourself a writer? 

When I had my first short story published.

Other than writing, what are some of your interests, hobbies or passions in life?

I love to go to the movies by myself. This way I always see what I want and no one talks to me during the movie. LOL

What can readers expect next from you?

Book two, Her Black Heart comes out in August and I have a romantic suspense coming out as well but don’t have a release date yet.

Where can readers find you on the web?

Would you like to leave readers with a little teaser or excerpt from the book?

“You can touch them if you want.”
Placing a hand on the cushion at her hip, he leaned down. He ran a palm along one of the top arches of her wings. She closed her eyes and moaned, carried away by the new sensation. His touch felt erotic. What was the deal with that? He seemed to enjoy it as much as she did. Then he stopped, got off the couch, and went to gaze out the sliding glass door.
The angel stared outside. When he didn’t move for five minutes, Amalya became curious to see what he was looking at so intently through the glass. She pulled herself to a sitting position. Straightening out her legs, she placed her bare feet on the putrid yellow carpet. When she took a step toward him, she almost tripped over one of the shoes Aba had given her. She looked around for the other pump. It was missing. Damn; she’d liked them too.

She stood beside him about to take her first glimpse of Earth in ten years. The fact that it had only been a couple of days for them didn’t matter; she was nervous. All she could see was an overcast sky, reminding her of the last moments of her life. She had to step closer to the glass to get a better view. The balcony beyond the door-wall was enclosed with a black wrought iron railing. They were up high, maybe on the top floor of a ten or so story building. She expected to see snow on the ground. Instead, grass covered the courtyard below. What had happened to winter?

Amalya Rivers longs to die and end her lonely existence—but it doesn’t work out that way…

A former runaway turned criminal, Amalya is murdered and thrust into a treacherous world full of red-skinned, horned beasts under the control of the Demon Ruler, Abaddon, instead of enjoying peace and serenity like she hoped. But saving a young child from a certain brutal death in the last moments of her life has earned her a chance at salvation.

Elliott the Redeemer wants no part in saving another soul…

After one too many failures at redeeming lost souls, the nail-biting, self-pitying Elliot has had enough of his work and would prefer to live out his eternity on Earth drowning in bourbon. It doesn’t matter that Amalya has grown black feathered wings signifying the good that still dwells within her. He can’t risk failure again.

Amalya must save someone from her past in order to escape Abaddon’s rule…

She has to prevent the now grown child she saved from committing murder or risk returning to Netherworld with Abaddon for good. She can’t do it alone, though. Amalya needs the help of the angel sent to guide her, but their emerging love might not be enough to convince Elliot she’s worth the risk.

Amalya loves her black wings. She knows she’s meant to be an angel—and she will stop at nothing to prove it…

She enjoys being able to get inside someone else's head, even a fictional one, and see what they see. Watching how her characters deal with difficult situations or squirm with the uncomfortable ones make the hard work of writing all worth it.
