Colleen: Good Morning! Today sitting with us is ML Guida, author of Betrayal. Let’s get started. Do you recall the very first book you read that turned you on to romance/erotic books?
ML Guida: Yes, I do. The first romance/erotic book I read was Sweet Savage Love by Rosemary Rogers. I fell in love with Ginny and Steve’s story and devoured all of Rosemary’s books. I next got hooked on Johanna Lindsey’s books, but it was Sherrilyn Kenyon’s series that got me hooked on paranormal romance.
Colleen: Ahh Sweet Savage Love is one of my first loves, too! Stole my mother’s copy. Maybe I shouldn’t put that in print, she usually reads my work! Let’s move on. Lots of writers find inspiration in other media, especially the music industry. Do you listen to music while you write? If so who?
ML Guida: No, I’m probably a terrible writer. I like to watch television, but it’s paranormal stories that help propel my writing. My favorite series to watch is Supernatural, written and produced by Eric Kripke. I love Dean and Sam Winchester, but like the Twilight series, there are two camps and I would be in Sam’s. What about you?
Colleen: Here we are opposite. I am a huge music fan, but don’t watch television very much. I have read Twilight, but never saw the movies. Not typical I know! Tell us about your current story.
ML Guida: I am currently working on the sequel to Betrayal, Angels of Death. This is Blade’s story of being punished and having to make amends. The heroine is Abigail Malcolm, the sister of one of Blade’s murder victims and his true angel mate. He must find a way to convince her to forgive him and save his brother before Hell’s newest invention changes Abigail’s brother and his adolescent friends into killing zombies.
Colleen: For some reason, I just love anything with zombies! Can’t wait to read this one! What groups or social media networks can readers frequently find you posting and chatting in?
ML Guida: I’m on Facebook (MLGuidaauthor or ML Guida, Good Reads and Twitter (ml_mlguida). I also have a blog on my website: http://www.mlguida.com/blog/ I have to admit I probably use Facebook and Good Reads the most. Please stop by and see me.
ML Guida is currently pursuing a Master of Art in Creative Writing through Regis University. She resides in Colorado with her cocker spaniel. She enjoys walks, skiing, working out at the gym and watching my niece and nephews play sports.
