Big huge welcome to Karilyn for joining us today!
What genre do your books fall into or is it a genre blended?
I write urban fantasy and paranormal romance. My first books were paranormal romance, but my last five have been part of an urban fantasy series.
What inspires you to write?
I enjoy giving readers a good story and making them smile.
Do you listen to music or set the mood somehow to get writing?
Nope! I can’t write with music because I start to sing along. And no one wants to hear that! But I do have an hour long woo-woo instrumental music that’s supposed to calm your brain waves. It does help me write faster. As far as setting the mood, I have to drink herbal tea in order to write. No clue why that helps!
Do you come up with the plot or characters first?
Usually the plot, but the characters are an integral part of plot so it’s an intertwined process for me.
Do you have a favorite book of yours?
Not a particular book, but I love the Song of Ice and Fire series by George RR Martin.
Tell me something quirky about yourself.
I can’t think straight if the house is dirty.
Do you sing in the shower?
Sometimes! No one can hear me, which is a good thing! Ha!
What appears to be a simple crime, unmasks a chilling deception…
Gin Crawford, the world’s newest demon huntress, kills two minions who are breaking into a financial adviser’s office. But what she thinks of as another night in the life of a demon huntress leads to a cover-up of epic proportions. A demon haunts her employer, the Agency, and only she can stop it.
Aidan Smythe, her guardian mage and lover, along with her brother T, and the healer Eloise, join her search in discovering the demon’s identity. A search thwarted by a powerful spell.
Breaking the spell requires her to join forces with Zagan, the demon of deceit, the demon who marked her as his. But working together comes with a price. One Gin is not sure she can pay.
She chuckles as I sip my beer. “Not nothing. I am trying to discover the identity of the demon at theAgency.” She frowns. “It’s not going well. I know I know who the demon is, but every time I think of its identity”—her hands move in a poof motion—“it
“Yeah, I have the same problem.”
A memory pops into my mind. Two memories, actually. The first was of last night’s fight with Rahab. How the demon said he only had one demon left to kill in order to rule Hell. Mammon, the demon of greed. The second memory was from last week when Smythe and I went to the Agency. We ran into Chuck Tweedy, the Big Boss of the Agency, and my justitia couldn’t stop chanting “greedy.” I assumed the bracelet got its
words mixed up, exchanging Tweedy for greedy. But what if there was a connection?
A dull pain hammers my head. I rub my brow. What was I thinking? We were talking about the Agency demon. Who could it be?
“You do have the same problem.” Eloise touches my leg, and the headache disappears. “That’s what happened to me.”
“How did you know?” Eloise was blind, although I swear at times she sees fine. “I could feel your pain.” Her brow furrows. “Like a spell had been thrown at you that caused the headache. I wonder if the same thing happens when I get a headache from thinking on the demon’s identity.”
“Wait. You mean whenever I think about who the demon is, my thoughts trigger a spell? What does the spell do?”
Karilyn Bentley’s love of reading stories and preference of sitting in front of a computer at home instead of in a cube, drove her to pen her own works, blending fantasy and romance mixed with a touch of funny.
Her paranormal romance novella, Werewolves in London, placed in the Got Wolf contest and started her writing career as an author of sexy heroes and lush fantasy worlds.
Karilyn lives in Colorado with her own hunky hero, two crazy dogs, aka The Kraken and Sir Barks-A-Lot, and a handful of colorful saltwater fish.
