Tell us about your novel, Stray Witch...

Stray Witch is a love story between a witch who doesn’t know she is a witch and a vampire gentleman who still keeps his Victorian manners. They make a really sweet couple, and their relationship is a mixture between what you find in paranormal and regency romances, sprinkled with humour and darker moments, too.
The story started with a glimpse of how old-fashioned vampires could live discreetly in our modern world. The whole situation can become absurd at times, and it lends itself well to funny situations. I tried to use humour and romance as a fairy tale background to highlight deeper social issues.

Describe your typical writing day...

I usually start my day with a large mug of tea, then I work on mundane administrative tasks until my brain wakes up. To be honest, I can’t write properly until it gets dark outside. Maybe that’s why I can relate to vampires so well.

What projects are you working on right now?

Right now (November 2020) I'm working through the edits of Witches Masquerade.
The second novel in the series, Witch’s Mirror, was published in October. Most of this book happens in Como, Italy. I was there last summer right before I started to write the first draft.

About Stray Witch:

Stray Witch is a story of vampires and witches... and much more. It tells the story of an atypical heroine overcoming a terrible mistake, intertwined with a slow-burn romance with lots of chemistry and quick-witted remarks. This Paranormal Romance will delight Magical Realism and Paranormal Women's Fiction readers alike.
