Paranormal romance author Jamie Leigh Hansen brings you an exciting new story of Mary. After rescuing her vampire lover, the King of the Murder, Sebastian, Mary must now prove her worth as his mate. But, when her past clashes with her future and lives are at stake - literally - a woman does what she must. Will their love survive her sacrifice?

Kayla: Could you tell us a little about yourself

Jamie: I love to write. To bring new stories into the world and share them with others. That might seem an obvious thing to share, but it really is one of the most important. That...and I love cheesecake. :)

Kayla: If you had one wish to make that would be granted, what would it be?

Jamie: I would love for a breakthrough in Friedreich's Ataxia research and treatment to allow me to dance again someday. :) Sometimes, if I get caught up in just the right song, I can imagine dancing around my backyard.

Kayla: What projects are you currently working on?

Jamie: I have several irons in the fire at this time. I am writing another installment for the Mammoth anthologies. I really love those.

I am also producing a second to my digitally self-published Murder Tales series, The Murder King's Summons. This is the sequel to The Murder King's Woman, a story of Mary, a human raised in the Murder, vampires and werewolves who work together to police the paranormal world.
And, I am working with about 17 other authors from around the world, in multiple languages, on a novel for the International Literary Project to Fight Against Friedreich's Ataxia. The first draft of The Legacy is nearly complete in Spanish and English. It's been so much fun getting to know authors from around the world.
Kayla: What is the best part of being an author?

Jamie: The best part is being able to communicate the things going on in my brain in a fun, entertaining way. Something that doesn't always happen easily as I sit quietly and watch what's going on around me, or disappear into my own thoughts. And I love watching the pride on my husband and kid's faces when they see my dream taking another step forward.

Kayla: Do you prefer to write series or stand alone novels?

Jamie: So far, I think series are what I prefer. I always feel there is more than one story in the story I am telling. And I don't want to leave beloved characters and settings. Even when I try to write a stand alone, so many ideas crop up for a book two. And, of course, nothing less than a trilogy will do. :)

Kayla: If you could say anything to your fans/readers what would it be?
Jamie: I am a very slow writer. However, I am dedicated and determined to write the best story I am capable of. If you stick with me, I will give you many hours of solidly-written entertainment. :)

JamieLH - B&W Author Pic - smallMulti-published paranormal romance author Jamie Leigh Hansen, is best known for dramatic, heartfelt stories with intense emotion and engaging, unforgettable characters.
"One summer, when my brother and I were much younger than we are now, our grandmother took us to the library. I came home with a career aptitude test, my idea of fun reading when I was twelve. My brother still teases me about that. But from that test, I learned I was suited for three careers. Editor, Agent or Writer. It was like getting permission to do something I'd only imagined before. My mind zeroed in on writer and never segued.
In college, I visited a writer's group and was amazed to learn there was an entire organization devoted to writing my favorite fiction: romance. I began devouring writing books and learning as much about the publishing industry as I could. At the same time, my girls were hitting their teens and paranormal stories became more than just an occasional interest.
I have since published two paranormal romance novels and a short story, with several more on the way. I am now branching into paranormal Young Adult stories and an amazing project with BabelFAmily, the International Literary Project to Fight Friedreich's Ataxia.
I love to hear from friends and fans at Updates on my projects can be found at Drop by and say Hi!"
