I write sexy paranormal small town romance (whew, that's a mouthful!) set in Banshee Creek, Virginia, The Most Haunted Town in the USA. My books feature feisty, irrepressible heroines and strong, controlling alpha males along with a host of paranormal critters (ghosts, cryptids, pagan gods...the sky's the limit).
I love quirky towns with spooky stories, and, thanks to my books, I get to "live" in one year-around. In real life I live in a Minneapolis suburb (which is sadly lacking in ghosts) with my family.
Interview with Ani Gonzalez
Why did you write this book?
I saw a haunted house listing in HGTV’s House Hunters (I love that show!). The poor owners were having a really hard time selling it. That gave me the idea for my protagonist, Elizabeth Hunt, a real estate agent living in Banshee Creek, The Most Haunted Town in America. Poor Elizabeth doesn’t just have one haunted house to sell. She has dozens.
The town is, as you might expect, extremely eccentric with a haunted pizzeria, a crazy group of paranormal investigators, and plenty of quirky characters. Those elements made writing this book a lot of fun. I hope people enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.
What is your favorite genre to read?
My favorite genres are Paranormal Romance, Small Town Romance and Romantic Comedy. I have elements of all three in my books.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)? Nyx, the Valkyrie from Kresley Cole’s Immortals After Dark series. She is hilarious. I also love Betsy Taylor from MaryJanice Davidson’s Undead series.
What are you working on at the moment, and will see from you in coming months?
I’m writing book 4 in the Banshee Creek series, My Ghostly Valentine, it will come out in February. Valentine’s Day comes to Banshee Creek, will the haunted town residents be able to deal with pink hearts and pretty flowers? You’ll find out in 2016.
Please tell us about your latest book.
B-movie actress turned real estate agent Elizabeth Hunt should have it made. The real estate market is thriving and she had a fabulous house to sell. Too bad the house is in Banshee Creek, a tiny Virginia hamlet that has been recently crowned as the "Most Haunted Town in America." But, with the help of the Banshee Creek Historical Preservation Committee, Elizabeth hopes to put the ghost stories to rest. Her hometown will again be known for its vintage homes, its heirloom apple orchards, and its historical, not phantasmagorical, attributes, and she won't let anyone, even her long-time crush, Gabe Franco, stand in her way.
Gabe has a big problem. His new marketing campaign for Banshee Creek Cidery is based on one thing, ghosts, but the Historical Preservation Committee nutcases are trying to erase the town's spookier traditions. He has to stop them before they render his investment worthless. Unfortunately, the leader of the anti-ghost crusade is all-too-tempting Elizabeth, his best friend's sister and the one woman who is strictly off limits. But when Elizabeth rallies the townsfolk against him, Gabe wonders if he'll lose his business…or his heart.
