Welcome Liena Ferror

I’d like to welcome author Liena Ferror to A Sovereign Spot today and thank you for taking the time to talk to me.

Can you tell us a little about yourself?

First of all, thank you for having me here today, J. I currently live in South Central Pennsylvania with my wonderfully supportive husband and beautiful daughter. My son is currently serving in the U.S. Navy. My home is a small zoo with five cats, one dog, one bird, and some fish. When I’m not writing, I’m reading, making jewelry, or spending time with my family.

How long have you been writing?

I’ve been writing seriously for two and half years now. Prior to that, I had my nose constantly buried in a book. My husband made an off-handed comment about the fact I read so much I could probably write a book. After many starts and stops, Queen of the Ghost Drakon, the first in The Risen series, is being released today.

Tell us a little about your favorite character.

I can’t honestly say I have a favorite character. I try to create my characters with traits that I myself would like to see in a person. Strength, compassion, etc…But I try to make my heroes as hot as possible. Hot enough to singe their female companions. They are stubborn and hardheaded lycans and vampires while my heroines are demons, vampires, lycans and a little bit of dragon and fae mixed in.

Who inspired or inspires you the most?

Prior to beginning my writing career I read Nora Roberts, J.D. Robb, Sherrilyn Kenyon and Christine Feehan to name a few. I also like a good suspense or action/adventure by authors like Clive Cussler and Dan Brown. I’ve read so many books by so many authors that they’ve all influenced me in one way or another to create a style all my own.

Are there any genres you’d like to try writing in?

I would love to write a romantic suspense in the future. I don’t see myself writing like a Dan Brown or Clive Cussler so I’d stick to the romantic side of things and venture out from that genre into different sub-genres.

Are you working on anything new?

Right now, I’m working on the third book in The Risen Series. It’s another paranormal shifter romance dealing with two very different people who have to come to terms with the fact that they are mates. The story tells of their trial as a newly mated couple and the two different worlds they come from.

When you’re not writing, what are some of your favorite things to do?

I love to read. When my nose isn’t buried in the pages of a book or I’m not reading an e-book, I like to make jewelry. I find it very hands-on and relaxing. Otherwise, I’m doing something with my family, be it watching TV or going out and about.

Just for fun, tell us:

What’s your favorite vacation spot?

I can’t honestly say I’ve taken very many vacations. I’m a homebody. I did go to Boston and loved the city and the accents!

If you could own any car you wanted what would it be?

The new Dodge Challenger. There is just something about the car that I love. I certainly wouldn’t kick it out of my driveway.

If you could do it all over again, is there anything you’d change about your life?

No. I like the way my life has turned out though it wasn’t always a smooth road. I’m happily married and have two wonderful children. I couldn’t ask for anything more.

Thanks for sharing those interesting facts. Now, tell us about your book.

Here’s a Blurb:
A vampire’s ultimate fatal attraction is the essence of a ghost…

Innocent to the paranormal world and innocent to the world of men, Keara McCabe finds herself caught in a century's old battle between renegade vampires and lycans after witnessing the murder of her friend at the fangs of an immortal bloodsucker. On the other hand, the vampire barely sips her blood and dies. From that moment forward, she becomes wanted dead or alive. The vampires want her destroyed for the danger she is, the lycans want her as a weapon against all vampires.

Lycan Gannon Langon vows to protect her from both her enemies. But its in her arms that he finds innocence and fire, tentativeness and passion. As their desire ignites, the enemy implements a deadly plan.

Will Keara and Gannon survive to explore their new love together or will that love be destroyed?

How can readers get your book?

Hey folks, I was able to get a few more tidbits of interesting information out of Liena:

What’s your favorite food?
I haven’t met very much I haven’t liked except liver. Yuck!

Where would you like to live if you had a choice?
Bozeman, MT or Boise, ID. Somewhere where everyone’s not on top of their neighbor.
What’s your favorite color?
Blue in any shade. Just love it! (So I did all the question's in blue in honor of having Liena here today!)

Who’s your favorite actor/TV show?
Right now, I’m hooked on Bones so I’d have to say David Boreanaz and Emily Deschanel.
I know how busy an author’s life can be and I appreciate you taking time out of your schedule to join me.

    Thanks for stopping by.


  5. Yuck, I hate liver, too, Liena. Very good interview, ladies. I'm off to buy the book.

  6. Sandy,

    Thanks for supporting we liver haters!

    Also, thanks for the wanting to purchase Queen. I'm proud of the story and hope you like it as much as I do.

    Thanks for stopping by.


  7. Don't cook liver, haven't had it in years, but when cooked right - I like it. Not something I ever think of when planning a meal. Thinking about it now, but by the time I shop - I'll forget again. LOL

  8. Hey Liena,
    Congratulations on the new release of your book! I'm really looking forward to reading it...I absolutely love reading paranormal romances and you've got them all...werewolves, demons, vampires...*sigh* in total heaven right now...
    btw...I'm so with you on the ick factor of liver...blech :P

    Best of luck with your upcoming projects...will definitely keep an eye out for the sequels.

    Happy Reading

  9. Anna,

    Thanks for the interest in Queen of the Ghost Drakon. Its sequel, Frost at Dusk, is due to be released by Eirelander Publishing on April 16, 2010.

    I could never get over the texture of liver. Love the gravy my mom used to make but couldn't eat the liver itself.

    Thanks for leaving a comment today!


  10. J,

    My mom was an awesome cook. Yet, I couldn't even eat her liver and I'm sure she made it right. Liver is one thing that never makes it onto our shopping list.


  11. Hey Ladies,

    Great interview!

    You may hate me for this, but I love liver, especially smothered in onions. I made the horrible mistake one day of buying pork liver instead of beef. Got it home cooked it, and decided it needed to go in the garbage. I swear, I'll never make that mistake again.

    Anyway, congratulations on your fabulous book. I will be buying and adding to my TBR pile today. I must feed my addiction, you know. I really enjoyed that excerpt.

    Blessings, may you have many sales!


  12. Charisma,

    Thanks for the well wishes and for considering purchasing Queen. I hope you enjoy it. It was so much fun creating the world and characters.

    I honestly never tried pork liver. I still don't think I will. I can eat chicken livers every now and again but that's as far as I go with liver.

    Thanks for commenting.
