Interview with Anita Philmar

Why did you write this book?
I have been fascinated with the question of whether or not Neanderthal DNA was in the human genome. I know it is a geeky thing to get hung up on, but I liked science in school. After reading the journey of the scientist Doctor Svante Paabo that made the discovery, I had to find a way to create a book about it. This led me on a journey to incorporate science with fiction. Wow, was it fun and it’s not over. This is the 1st book in the series.
What is your favorite genre to read?
I enjoy romantic suspense and love having them with an element of the paranormal which is exactly what The Warrior in Me represents.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
I really like Wolverine.
What are you working on at the moment, and will see from you in coming months?
At the moment, I working on the last book in my series – The Cowboys of Naked Bluff, Texas. It is a western, historical suspense that is very hot.  I’m hoping to have it out in January, but the holiday always seem to put me behind.
Please tell us about your latest book.
 Special Security Agent Sebastian Berlin is eager to track down his partner's killer. Instead, he’s assigned the job of baby-sitting a scientist. His boss thinks she's the key to an Ancient Warrior Prophecy. Science never interested Sebastian, but the know-it-all female standing at the end of his Alaskan dock could persuade him to do a little experimenting. That is, if he can keep his Neanderthal Warrior genes from taking control.
DNA specialist Lily Sinclair is in need of a vacation, or so her over-protective ex-husband tells her. Arriving in chilly Alaska instead of sunny Cancun, she's tired and cranky and so not in the mood for her bodyguard's he-man tactics. Still, there's something about the sexy eye-candy that makes her want to lick him all over even as she's demanding to go home.
Then Lily's ex is poisoned, and Sebastian is certain the two murders are connected and she could be next. She knows he's hiding something, but with the worldwide release of Neanderthal DNA project only days away, she has no choice but to trust him to protect her. But can she trust him with her heart?

  1. Welcome, Anita! This looks great. :)

  2. Thank you, Kayelle. It is always a pleasure to visit with you. Love the science in this book. Shows how much we still have to learn about who we are as a species. Have a great week and a wonderful Thanksgiving.

  3. Also, I was wondering how many people out there would do a DNA test to find out their ancestral heritage? Love to hear what you learned and how it changed your vision of yourself.
