Interview with the Author:
Q: So, what prompted you to write the Complicated Creatures series?
A: It's simple, really. I'm a huge fan of romance, romantic suspense and action thrillers, and I felt there was something really missing in combining these genres. I also wanted to write a really strong female protagonist who, while impressive, is incredibly relatable, smart, self-reliant and gutsy.
Q: Who or what inspired the lead character, Samantha Wyatt?
A: Honestly, I just took what I liked most about the male leads in some of my favorite vigilante justice action thriller stories and turned the whole thing on its head. I started thinking, "What if James Bond or Jack Reacher were a woman? What if she was the head of a multinational corporation? What if she led a team of commandos--what would that be like?"
As I considered all the possibilities, I saw a woman with true grit, style and the kind of savvy we admire but rarely see in female characters. And it makes for an intriguing question--what kind of man can get a woman like that? And would she even let him?
Q: Does your series have an intended audience?
A: Sure. YOU. This series starts out as an international romantic suspense, but it's definitely got plenty of action, racy thrills and a tantalizing bit of mystery. It's written from both a woman and a man's perspective, and features a really fantastic supporting cast of characters with their own unique personalities. Anyone who loves Damn Good Fiction will enjoy this series.
Q: When is the next installment coming out?
A: Part Two: Hell or High Water is already out and available. The prequel to the series, Goddess Rising, is coming out soon. Readers and fans can stay tuned to updates, excerpts and new releases at my website: http://alexilawless.com/
