Dont' forget to check out the series post as well!
(MM): First off, thank you so much, Monica, for inviting me to be here with you and your readers today. I'm really thrilled to be visiting with you guys!
(BBB): Tell us a bit about 'A Highlander's Destiny'
(MM): When the worlds of Mortal and Fae collide, the magic of true love is put to the test.
much more than he bargained for, battling an undeniable attraction to his sexy new client while fighting to save her life and rescue her sister.
DESTINY NOBLE is desperately searching for her missing kid sister. Not even her own attempted abduction will stop her in her quest. Abandoned by everyone she's ever loved, losing Leah is the last straw. Authorities have declared the girl a runaway, but Destiny knows better. Her dreams have shown her the truth. They've also shown her Jesse.
Jesse and Destiny race against time to save an innocent girl from a powerful ancient evil. Will true love be their only weapon or will they each sacrifice their own destiny in the process?
(BBB): Did you prefer writing any of the highlander books over the others?
(BBB): Which was the hardest to write?
(MM): I think the second book in the series - Highland Guardian - was the hardest for me, because it was the book where it became important to really begin defining the Faerie world. Knowing that everything I put in there would shape the rest of the series slowed down the process on that particular book. [Though the heroine, Sarah, is still one of my favorites!]
(BBB): What do you think Scots really have under that kilt?
(MM): I like to think my Highlanders are tough stock, so I'd imagine there's nothing but Real Scot under their plaids! [And in my medievals, it's 'plaids' not 'kilts' because kilts hadn't come into use yet].
(BBB): Who is your favorite Highlander ever written, by you or anyone?
(BBB): Can you relate to any of your heroines?
(MM): I can relate a little to each of my heroines. I think there's a little something of me in every one. For example, in A Highlander's Destiny, the heroine, Destiny, has an issue with spiders. Yep, you guessed it... that phobia is all mine!
(MM): I love faerie tales! [pretty obvious, huh?]. For me, it would have to be a tie between Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty. I love the triumphing of good over evil and the Happy Ever After of a heroine finding her perfect hero. [The only thing that could make them better? Having the Heroine save the Hero sometimes!!]
(BBB): Whats your fav food?
(MM): I love comfort foods. Seriously. And which ones depend entirely on the mood of the day. German Chocolate Cake or a Grilled Cheese Sandwich, depending on the day, one of those two is guaranteed to make me happy!
(BBB): Any writing rituals?
(MM): Not really. I do take 3 to 4 weeks off after each book I finish. I seem to need that time to let the next set of characters bubble around in my head so they're ready to hit the page running.
(BBB): Have you ever been to Scotland?
(MM): Yes. I've been lucky enough to visit twice. I absolutely love it there and definitely plan on going back. I was in Scotland on vacation when I decided to write the first book in this series, as a matter of fact. My family had hiked back up into a beautiful place called The Fairy Glen. It's just north of Rosemarkie on the Dark Isle. The Faerie Glen in my stories is modeled after that exact spot!
(BBB): Thank you so much for sharing your time with me, It was an honor to do an interview with you.
