Lisa Hughey has been writing romance since the fourth grade, which was also about the time she began her love affair with spies. Harriet and Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys later gave way to James Bond and Lara Croft and Jason Bourne. Exploring the complex nature of a profession that requires subterfuge and lies fascinates her. She loves combining her two passions into fiction.
Archangel Rafe is her first foray into the paranormal but after spending time in the Angelic Realm, it won’t be her last. At their heart, the Seven novels are about the dynamics of family relationships. But the really hot Archangels don’t hurt.
She loves to hear from readers. Happy reading!!
Julie: Welcome, Lisa. To get us started can you tell us a little about what you are working on or have coming out?
Lisa: I am in the middle of the action for the third book in the Black Cipher Files, Zeke and Sunshine’s story. I’ve also been toying with which Archangel book to write next. I was initially going to write Zach’s story but lately I’ve been thinking that Zach may need to wait awhile before he gets his happily ever after.
Julie: How would you describe yourself using only five words?
Lisa: Happy, Loving, Enthusiastic, Nurturing, Inquisitive.
Julie: I love reading the warnings on the blurbs for many books. If you could write a warning label for yourself as a person or an author, what would it say?
Lisa: Warning: This author writes fast-paced, complex plots, hot sex, and intense relationships.
Julie: Do you have any guilty pleasures?
Lisa: Potato chips. I love potato chips. And sometimes I play hooky from writing and read in bed all day.
Julie: Name one thing readers would be surprised to know about you.
Lisa: When I am in a mood, I swear like a sailor.
Julie: If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
Lisa: My dream, once my kids are launched, is to house swap all over the world. I want to live in New York City in the fall, and Paris in the spring, New Orleans, the south of France, a beach town on the East Coast, Italian countryside, Irish countryside, England, Canada, the rest of the 50 states I haven’t visited. I want to go everywhere.
Julie: How do you get yourself in the mood to write?
Lisa: When my kids were little I didn’t have the luxury of developing a routine. The second they were out of the house or asleep or occupied, I sat down and wrote. That pretty much holds true today. I do usually review what I wrote the day before and then dive into the story but I can open up my laptop almost anywhere and be ready to go.
Zeke and Sunshine’s story (Black Cipher Files), coming early 2013
