Discussing shifters with Annmarie McKenna

Hi Annmarie! Thank you for joining us today. Can you tell everyone a little bit about yourself?

I am a mom of four, wife, chauffeur, writer, reader, and love to travel with my family.

How long have you been writing?

Since about 2004 I guess.

What is your writing process like?

Well until now I’ve always written at night, in the dark quietness of the house, after everyone’s–all the kids at least–have gone to bed. Now that my son is in kindergarten, I am able to write in the mornings.

What made you decide to write about shifters?

I love ’em 🙂 I love to read about them and would really like to meet the ultimate dominant alpha male. LOL

If you could be any type of shifter, which would you choose?

I think a werewolf. Or maybe a jaguar. Perhaps an eagle…

Do you have any future plans for heroes of the furry variety?

I tend to flop around from genre to genre a lot. I am still working on the third in the Mate Series, Ultimatum. If only Derek and Paige would cooperate, things would go much easier.

Can you tell us about your next release(s)?

To the Max releases May 4th from Samhain. It’s a short, fun, pole-dancing red-hots! If anyone has read the first two, Between a Ridge and a Hard Place or Bridging the Gap, then you’ve met Max, the security man.

When you are not writing or reading, what do you enjoying doing in your spare time?

Traveling, watching my kid’s various sports, long drives to nowhere in particular. We really like indoor waterparks so we’ve been hitting those lately. And if I had a loom, I’d probably spend vast amounts of time weaving.

If you could ask readers any question, what would it be?

I’m always wondering what people are truly looking for that they’re aren’t finding. You know us, always looking for ideas.

Where can readers find you on the internet?

I am the most horrible author for updates–I’m sure everyone who’s ever looked can tell you that. Sorry! www.annmariemckenna.com or on facebook. I have a Myspace page but man, are those even used anymore? and a blog that you can access from the website but again…it’s woefully behind in updates. I also have a yahoo group that’s mainly used for special announcements. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Annmarie_McKenna/
Annmarie has offered a great Shifter Week prize! One lucky person will get their pick from her backlist. Winner’s choice! All you need to do is leave a comment answering her question. Good luck 😀
