today I have the pleasure to have Alanea Ader here with me presenting her latest story, My Angel, and chat a bit with us.
Hi Alanea, and thank you for being here with me. How did you come up with the idea for your book?
It is the continuation of the Bewitched and Bewildered series so it builds on the previous books.
If your story had a soundtrack, which song would it be?
How death comes – Mediaeval Babes
Did you always have the reins of the story or the people in it tried to take over?
I very rarely have the reins of the story. In most cases, the people in it tell me their story and I document it.
What does a typical workday look like for you?
I start my day with coffee to wake the voices in my head. Once they have been fully caffeinated they begin to tell me their tales.
What do your friend and family think about your being a writer?
They are very supportive and are excited about my success.
The biggest surprise you had after becoming a writer.
That I could actually write books that other people enjoyed reading.
What does your writing space look like?
It is organized within an inch of its life.
Do you outline books ahead of time or are you more of a by-the-seat-of-your-pants writer?
I outline my books but often have scenes or plot points that appear out of nowhere when I am actually writing.
How long does it take to write a story?
It depends on the story and the characters in it.
Best song ever written.
Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen
Favorite actor and actress.
Music or silence?
Music but nothing that has words.
Outline or just write?
A little of both.
A pet peeve.
The way people drive today and the fact that there is no driving etiquette anymore.
First thought when the alarm goes off in the in the morning?
I love the fact that I don’t need an alarm clock.
Thank you, Alanea!
In Alanea’s story, My Angel, Vivian Mercy has been running from the past for so long she doesn’t know any other way of life. When a panicked call comes from one of her only friends she finds herself returning to the city of her nightmares where her dedication as a doctor and resolve to help others is put to the test.
Etain Vi’Aerlin has been watching over Noctem Falls for centuries. Sent by his queen he became a silent sentinel in the shadows helping Magnus whenever he could. While the sickness around him claims more lives he discovers what it feels like to be helpless, as an ancient warrior he doesn’t have the skills to fight this unseen enemy.
At any other time finding a mate would be cause for celebration, but Etain wants Vivian as far from Noctem Falls as possible, unfortunately, as the only doctor with an intimate knowledge of diseases she has to stay in the city, and finds herself working tirelessly to discover a cure in the middle of the deadly chaos sweeping the levels.
As Vivian’s past is revealed she finds herself not only combating the terrible virus but also the rebellious faction of the Founding Families. Etain vows to stand by her, even if it means abandoning the post assigned by his queen.
It’s a race against time to unravel the lethal secrets the virus is hiding before the city itself is lost forever.

“Do we want to know?” Dimitri asked.
Kendrick shook his head. “Honestly? Probably not, stay dumb and happy.”
Viktor gave Kendrick a dirty look. “Are you always like this or do you have something against vampires?”
Kendrick thought about it a moment. “No, I’m pretty much always like this, no offense,” he smiled at them brightly. The warriors scowled at his flippant response.
Godard eyed Kendrick. “Since you are a member of the Alpha Unit, maybe you should come train with us tomorrow. That is, if your soft archivist hands can stand getting a little dirty,” he teased.
Kendrick gave him an evil smile and rose to his full height. He stood nearly half a foot over them. “You will find that I am not as easy to manipulate as two certain innocent witches. I look forward to seeing you first thing in the morning.”
