This quick interview includes info about Diane Saxon and her story, Barbara's Redemption.
About the Author
Diane Saxon lives in the Shropshire countryside with her tall, dark, handsome husband, two gorgeous daughters, a Dalmatian, one-eyed kitten, ginger cat, four chickens and a new black Labrador puppy called Beau, whose name has been borrowed for her hero in For Heaven's Cakes.
After working for years in a demanding job, on-call and travelling great distances, Diane gave it all up when her husband said “follow that dream”.
Having been hidden all too long, her characters have burst forth demanding plot lines of their own and she’s found the more she lets them, the more they’re inclined to run wild.
Interview with Diane Saxon
Why did you write this book?
I held a launch party for one of my previous books and one of the games we played was for everyone to put their name into a hat, and the winner got a walk on part in my next book. This happened to be Flynn’s Kiss, Book #1 in my Disarmed & Dangerous series. The winner, Barbara Ann Perry was so delighted, she didn’t want to be a gentle sweetheart – no – she wanted to be a kick ass female. Well, actually she would really have liked to be a psychotic killer, but we smoothed that out a little between us.
By the time her sassy and strong willed character hit the first few pages of Flynn’s Kiss, I knew the woman had to have a whole book of her own.
What is your favorite genre to read?
Romance. Almost any sub-genres, but mainly thrillers, suspense, historical, contemporary and paranormal. And I love humour, so bring on the Julia Quinns and the Susan Elizabeth Phillips.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
Do you know, I’m quite fickle. There are so many that I love, but I have to say I read Tim by Colleen McCullough many years ago, before it was turned into a film and my heart almost exploded with love for him.
What are you working on at the moment, and will see from you in coming months?
I’m torn. I’m currently working on If Love Had Wings, a follow-up to Banshee Seduction, but there’s another character being a bit pushy and wanting her own story, so I’m also writing one of my Atlantic Divide series too. Whichever one takes my fancy at the time.
In the coming months, there’s going to be quite a bit of activity from me. I have Gun Shy coming out in August and several other projects which I’ll talk about more next time.
Please tell us about your latest book.
Black Hawk pilot Captain Barbara Lynn Perry is running scared. Witness to an event too horrible to think about and too dangerous to talk of, she finds herself alienated from a world she has always had faith in.
With her Special Forces brother missing, she has only one other person to turn to. When her friend Flynn Swann isn’t available, Barbara is left with no choice but to trust the man Flynn sends to save her.
Psychiatrist Dominic Salter’s information from her superior officer’s file is that Barbara has gone rogue. Despite the damning evidence, every instinct tells him he’s dealing with an honorable woman, one who single-handedly saved Flynn from torture and a sure death. Dominic’s challenge is to delve his way beneath her tough, defensive attitude and coax the truth from a woman who’s too frightened to reveal her dark secret.
In his brand new facility containing a state of the art Dreampsych Transcender he’s experimenting with, a machine far beyond a simulator, Dominic has to gain the trust and confidence of Barbara while he resists the hard pull of attraction to this kick-ass woman.
Betrayed by a member of his staff, events take a sinister turn, and the pressure is on in a fight against time for Dominic to persuade Barbara to put her trust in him and reveal the truth before matters are taken out of his hands.
