Crystal: Today I have the chance to ask Meredith Conner a few questions. Welcome Meredith! I'm so happy to have you here today. Would you share a little bit about yourself with us today?
Meredith: I’m a wife, mother and an avid dreamer. I’ve always had stories running around in my head for as long as I can remember. I can get lost in a book or a movie and be swept along with the characters and their journey. I love to travel, do crafty things, spend time with friends and family, enjoy a glass of wine and read. I’ve held numerous jobs including making sandwiches on a conveyor line while living in Holland and driving a dog sled for a tour company in Wyoming.
Crystal: Do you have a favorite scene you would like to share with us?
I wasn't sure what kind of inner beast Al had. He was such a loving Chihuahua. I also wasn't sure I was up to appropriately dealing with this right now.
It was four AM after all.
My brain kept coming up with images of a really tiny wolf's head emerging from Al's chest like in the movie "Alien" and then an image of Sigourney Weaver dressed in a tank and panties would appear and all I could really think was Damn, she looked good.
It circled around and around in my head. Especially the image of Sigourney Weaver. Height and a great body. I tried to superimpose my face on the image, but then the tiny wolf's head would pop out of Al's chest and . . . Like I said, it all simply circled.
And I couldn't use a spell on Al. That would be black magic.
I'm a good witch.
"Al, I . . ." What I had was nothing. Zip. Nada. Squat.
And Sigourney in a tank and panties. My brain was sort of stuck on that image now.
Crystal: Where did you come up with the idea for your latest release?
Meredith: This is actually the fourth book in a series. The series has been building towards this story where my heroine, Kate Storm, has to confront her evil aunt. The evil aunt placed a curse on Kate and has been trying to kill her. When they meet, Kate not only has to fight for her life, she has to face her own insecurities.
Crystal: What are you currently working on?
Meredith: I’m finishing up the fourth book in a paranormal werewolf romance series.
Crystal: Do you have any special routine that you follow when you are writing?
Meredith: I always re-read what I wrote the day before to make sure I’m following the storyline and the characters and I try to make a certain word count per day.
Crystal: Did you have to do a lot of research for this book or any other? If so, do you have a fascinating fact that you would like to share with us?
Meredith: I did research on demons, the Salem Witch Trials, witches, the Arthurian legends and wolves.
I can tell you that wolves have a bite force of nearly 400 pounds, there are several different classifications of demons and Googling in the words “sexy male demons” can lead to unexpected porn sites.
Crystal: Who are some of your favorite authors that you like to read?
Meredith: Jayne Ann Krentz, Lisa Marie Rice, Lauran Dohnner, Lori Foster, J.D. Robb, Kate Carlisle, Georgette Heyer, Linda Howard, Robert Parker, Alexandra Ivy and Craig Johnson.
Crystal: Is there a genre you haven’t written that you would like to try?
Meredith: Women’s fiction and contemporary romance. I have 2 stories in each genre that have been rattling around for a couple years now.
Kate Storm is running out of time. Her long lost aunt Morgause - the one with the grudge - is getting closer and closer to finding Kate.

Her un-dead best friend, Morgan, is obsessed with Karaoke. A new client is using Black Magic and her high school rival has signed up to use Kate’s matchmaking services. It’s enough to drive a witch crazy. Kate, however, is determined to triumph and have a chance at her own happily-ever-after with her demon boyfriend, Ash.
