Hey everyone we have a guest with us today. Please say hi to Carrie Anne Ryan and leave a comment for a chance at a wonderful prize.
Hi! Thank you so much for having me here today!
Where and what were you doing when you realized you wanted to be a writer when you grew up?
That’s a funny question because I didn’t think that as a kid. I had always wanted to be a scientist. And for a while, I was! And then two years I started writing to get some stories in my head on paper. It wasn’t until last year that things came together for me while I was teaching for me to actually do something that I didn’t know I needed. I love it.
Who's your hero and why?
Oh that’s a hard one! Um, my dad? He’s a military man who I hadn’t thought would support me in writing erotic romance, but boy was I wrong! He is so proud of me that sometimes I can’t believe it.
What inspires you?
Everything and anything. I’m a character writer, so if I see or hear something that sparks a character trait, it helps.
What genre haven't you written yet but would like to one day?
I have a contemporary series lined up in a couple of years and I’m excited! But I need to finish these 4 or 5 paranormals of mine first!
What's your least favorite holiday and why?
Hmmm…Christmas. It’s the one time I actually get to see my family! Since I grew up all over the world b/c of the Air Force, I didn’t get to collect a lot of knickknacks and keep real traditions. Everywhere we lived we had to do something slightly different, but we tried our best to keep things family oriented and sparkly. LOL
Favorite writing spot, clothes?
In my kitchen! LOL I have my office in the corner of it and I can keep from getting distracted. And I prefer writing in jeans and a t-shirt. LOL No jammies for me. If I don’t get dressed and showered, then I don’t want to start the day and will read all day if I can!
What are your pet peeves?
People being late! Being on time is not showing up at the exact time, but being early! I’m an Air Force kid at heart LOL
What are you working on now?
Too much! I’m working on edits for Charmed Spirits, the first book in the Holiday, Montana Series, revisions on Enforcer’s Redemption, Adam’s book in the Redwood Pack series, writing Santa’s Executive, the second book in the Holiday, Montana Series and writing Blurred Expectations, a Redwood Pack Novella that will be out next year!
Who is your favorite author?
I have so many! But Nalini Singh just tugs at my heartstrings and imagination. I love her.

Humans aren’t as alone as they choose to believe. Every human possesses a trait of supernatural that lays dormant within their genetic make-up. Centuries of diluting and breeding have allowed humans to think they are alone and untouched by magic. But what happens when something changes?
Neat freak lab tech, Lily Banner lives her life as any ordinary human. She’s dedicated to her work and loves to hang out with her friends at Dante’s Circle, their local bar. When she discovers a strange blue dust at work she meets a handsome stranger holding secrets – and maybe her heart. But after a close call with a thunderstorm, she may not be as ordinary as she thinks.
Shade Griffin is a warrior angel sent to Earth to protect the supernaturals’ secrets. One problem, he can’t stop leaving dust in odd places around town. Now he has to find every ounce of his dust and keep the presence of the supernatural a secret. But after a close encounter with a sexy lab tech and a lightning quick connection, his millennia old loyalties may shift and he could lose more than just his wings in the chaos.
The motorcycle vibrated beneath Shade as he pulled off the side of the road and parked. The rain pelted him, the cold seeping into his bones, but he shrugged it off. He was in northern Washington and this seemed to be the norm in terms of weather.
He lifted his leg and got off the bike, ignoring the stares of the women around him. They watched him stroll, his powerful legs leading to long strides. He’d tucked his wings into the slits into his back to hide the fact he was an angel, but he couldn’t hide his face or the fact that women seemed to fawn over it.
It had been a long time since he had a woman. Not since that were jaguar a century or two ago in a night of deep depression and loneliness for him. But the heat, claws and desperation and only served to fill a physical need that left him even lonelier than before. From then on he left his carnal needs up to his hand. Before the jaguar it had been even longer, but he didn’t want to think about her. The one he’d lost. She was long since gone.
