Interview with paranormal author Rebecca Royce

Rebecca Royce is in the house today talking about the newest novel in her Westervelt Wolves series, Darkest Wolf.

Rebecca is giving away a $50 gift card to a lucky commentor. Details are after the interview. You know you want to comment, but first, read on!

As a teenager, Rebecca Royce would hide in her room to read her favorite romance novels when she was supposed to be doing her homework. She hopes, these days, that her parents think it was well worth it.

Rebecca is the mother of three adorable boys and is fortunate to be married to her best friend. They live in northern New Jersey and try not to freeze too badly during the winter months.

She's in love with science fiction, fantasy, and the paranormal and tries to use all of these elements in her writing. She's been told she's a little bloodthirsty so she hopes that when you read her work you'll enjoy the action packed ride that always ends in romance. Rebecca loves to write series because she loves to see characters develop over time and it always makes her happy to see her favorite characters make guest appearances in other books.

In Rebecca Royce's world anything is possible, anything can happen, and you should suspect that it will.

Welcome, Rebecca. Please tell us about your current release.
Darkest Wolf is the seventh book in the Westervelt Wolves series.

Rex Kane has always known he was different than his brothers, down to the fact that when he shifts into his wolf form, his coat is completely black. Always in trouble, he is given one more chance by his brother Tristan, the alpha of the Westervelt pack, to bring back to their island a witch who can stop some of the magical assault that has plagued their war-torn home. Rex knows he has one last chance to set things right. Everything depends on him and he cannot fail.

Elizabeth Willow has been cursed to look so repulsive no human eyes can bear to view her. Raised in a gentle coven of witches, she is ill prepared for the realities of the harsh world she now lives in.

Raised to mistrust wolf-shifters as witch-killers, she cannot seem to help being drawn to Rex. Even if she doesn't believe she is his so-called mate. He can see her as she really is and is the first person to look her in the eyes in years. Although she is not naturally devious, she sees no choice but to use Rex to gain her own freedom and her family’s safety.

Together, Rex and Elizabeth will see just how evil the people around them can be. If they can trust their hearts, perhaps they will survive another night. If not, both of their battles will never be won.

What inspired you to write this book?
Well, the book fits into the Westervelt Wolves series as the seventh book. It developed over time as the series developed.

What exciting story are you working on next?
I’m writing the next book in my Outsider series.

When did you first consider yourself a writer?
When I published my first book, Her Wolf.

Do you write full-time? If so, what's your work day like? If not, what do you do other than write and how do you find time to write?
Yes. I write full time. I get up, take care of the kids, drop them at their various schools, and then I write until its time to pick them all up.

What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?
Most of my chapters are 13 pages. I don’t know why I do that.

As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
A princess. LOL

Anything additional you want to share with the readers?
Thanks so much for reading my books.

Thanks for being here, Rebecca. It's been a pleasure learning a bit about you and your writing.

Readers, Rebecca is giving away a $50 gift certificate to one randomly drawn commentor during the tour, so, feel free to comment here and on any of her other stops. The more you comment, the better chances you have of winning.

Another series. I am really happy about it. I love your writing and I am so glad there are more than one book to read about the characters in the series.

I can't believe this is the seventh book. Can't wait to read it. I can't wait for the next book from the Outsider series.
I think, at some point in their lives, every girl wants to be a princess. There's nothing wrong with that.
Thanks for the blog tour.
