Welcome to Friday Author Spotlight, my bi-weekly posting featuring a new author. This week we will be visiting with Nina Mason who will be releasing three new books in the next few months.
Nina and I sat down and she shared with me some of her secrets.
Susan: What is your secret passion?
Nina: I have many passions, none of them secret. I’m very much a what-you-see-is-what-you-get kind of person, though also somewhat introverted.
Susan: Cats or dogs?
Nina: I love and have both–two rescue cats named Hamilton and Madison and a pure-bred Westie named Robert. I’m also an avid bird-watcher and have lots of feeders offering different things to attract a wide variety to my yard.
Susan: Favorite ice cream flavor?
Nina: In general, I’d have to say chocolate. More specifically, it’s got to be chocolate raspberry mousse royale from Baskin Robbins.
Susan: If you had a weekend to do anything you wanted, money no object, what would it be?
Nina: A luxurious spa getaway, preferably at a winery.
Susan: What inspired you to write Queen of Swords?
Nina: It started out as an attempt to combine Twilight and Pride & Prejudice with hot sex, but it’s evolved a lot since to reflect my loves of romance, mythology, history, the paranormal, and all things Scottish.
Nina’s been a very busy lady her books are scheduled to be released as follows:
The Queen of Swords (coming March 22, 2014 from Vamptasy)
The Knight of Wands (coming Spring 2014 from Soul Mate)
The Tin Man (coming August 30, 2014 from CHBB)

Good Luck Nina on your releases and come back to talk to us again when the book is released!
