Andrea R. Cooper author of Viking Fire answers five easy questions to help readers get to know her better.
Andrea has always created characters and stories. But it wasn't until she was in her late twenties that she started writing novels.
What happened that ignited the writing flame in her fingers? Divorced, and disillusioned by love songs and stories. They exaggerate. She thought. Love and Romance are not like that in the real world. Then she met her husband and realized, yes love and romance are exactly like the songs and stories say. She is now a happy wife, and a mom to three kids.
She believes in the power of change and counting each moment as a blessing. But most importantly, she believes in love.
What is your go-to meal when you dine out?
Tex-Mex. I love the cheese, spiciness, and variety of Tex-Mex food. Nowhere else has food like ours in Texas. (ex. I won’t mention the state, but when queso was ordered, it was a can of cheese soup :P)
Describe the perfect vacation.
Is there such a thing for a family? LOL. For me, a perfect vacation would be one where the kids have a great time, don’t whine, sleep in, and my husband and I can relax. We’re saving up for a Disney cruise – so maybe in about five years J
Tell us about your favorite toy as a child.
Barbies. Not so much for the wardrobe, house, or cars (though they were cool), but I created stories and characters with them. I had soap operas and family sagas galore.
What are your hobbies?
Besides writing, I love Zumba, dancing, reading, and catching up on my favorite shows: Game of Thrones, Reign, Vikings, Vampire Diaries, The Originals, I Zombi, Lost Girl, etc.
When you read for pleasure, what kind of books do you choose?
The same genres I write: fantasy, paranormal, historical romance, romantic suspense. I’m also a member of several book clubs, and they make me read novels I would never choose for myself, but expand my horizons and lead to great discussions.

Kaireen, daughter of Laird Liannon, is suddenly forced into an arranged marriage with her sworn enemy, a Viking. She refuses to submit. With no mention of love, only land and the protection of her clan, she endeavors to get her betrothed banished from her country. Will love find its way around her stubborn heart?
Bram, the Viking, finds himself without future or inheritance as a younger son in his family. A marriage to the Laird’s daughter would grant him land if he swears fidelity and if his men will fight along with the Liannons against any foe - Irish or Viking. However, the Laird’s feisty daughter only holds animosity for him and his kind. Is marriage worth the battle scars of such a relentless opponent?
With the blame for a rival Laird’s death treacherously set against the Liannons, Kaireen and Bram must find a way to lay aside their differences as an unforeseen darkness sends death snapping at their heels.
