Why did you write The Colony?
I'm a huge fan of sci-fi romance, and I'm also fascinated by paleontology (museum lover here). That got me thinking, and I asked myself what the fossil record on another planet might look like. And so Dr. Elisa Everett, the paleontologist heroine, was born, and so was The Colony. I wanted an action-packed sci-fi story featuring all my favorite elements in the genre.
What is your favorite genre to read?
It's a tie between sci-fi romance and paranormal romance, although I enjoy multiple genres.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
This can change on a daily basis, but frontrunners include Eve and Rourke from J.D. Robb's In Death series, Nix from Kresley Cole's Immortals After Dark series, and pretty much any of the main characters from Nalini Singh's Psi-Changeling series.
What are you working on at the moment, and will see from you in coming months?
I have another sci-fi romance and a couple of fantasy novels that are in edits, and I hope to see them released sometime in 2017.
Please tell us about your latest book.
Not everyone will make it out alive.
Responding to a distress call, Officer Alexander Valerian and the rest of his security team arrive at the human colony on the planet of Jangala to find blood and gore all over the walls. All the colonists are dead or missing except for Dr. Elisa Everett, a pretty paleontologist he finds injured and nearly suffocated in a ventilation shaft. Now Alex has to figure out how sixty-nine colonists were wiped out in a single night, but Elisa's account of killer monsters just raises more questions. Has the colony really been attacked by bloodthirsty beasts, or did everyone succumb to a powerful hallucinogen that made them turn on one another? He had better find out fast, because Elisa's life is in his hands.
