Welcome to Readers Write to Know! I asked you, my readers, what questions they would ask their favorite authors if given the chance. This week, I am so happy to introduce to you Sheri Fredricks. Sheri writes Modern Mythic Romance – and the plot of her current release sounds absolutely intriguing. She is a former engineering secretary who “wanted to move away from inflexible right angles and create an unboxed world with no boundaries.” Please enjoy her interview as much as I did!
Hallee, thank you so much for having me here today! I have a fabulous prize for one lucky commenter at each of my tour stops, so don’t forget to leave your email address! Among other goodies, my swag pack includes bookmarks and pens, and your name will go into a drawing for the grand prize of a $20 Amazon gift card at the end of my book tour.
Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I was born and raised in a small town on the beautiful central coast of California—about twenty minutes from the beach and two hours from the slopes. After I married, we moved 15 miles north to an even smaller town, population 1,259.
About ten years ago, I left the world of working parents to join the ranks of the SAHM. A few years went by before I felt the call to do something just for myself. Now I write full-time, work in my husband’s home office part-time, and cater to the kids, livestock, and ranch around the clock.
Tell us about your current release.
Remedy Maker is about Rhycious, an ex-military centaur medic whose battle scars are hidden beneath the surface. Moments of high stress trigger hallucinating flashbacks, a condition he continually fights to overcome. When he meets Patience, a beautiful wood nymph and the race of the late enemy of his people, he learns about unconditional love…and the healing power of a single touch.
Together they must battle human hunters who wish to enslave the mythological beings, rebels taking over the centaur kingdom, and the affection they have for each other in a mythic world filled with prejudice.
Here’s the blurb:
He’s the royal physician, famous for his cures. War and posttraumatic stress disorder has broken his spirit, preventing him from finding true happiness. Then a direct order from the queen to investigate an uprising forces him out of his secluded cabin at the edge of the forest.
Patience is an optimistic, good-natured Wood Nymph who works as a mediator to ensure harmony within the Nymph sector.
Environmental pollution in the aquifer stream that feeds the taproot tree of her heart is slowly killing her. Resigned to the fact she will not live long, she sets out to discover the mysterious disappearance of her sister. Experience has taught her to deny herself the love of a male, but the gruff Centaur is different. He doesn’t push his expectations on her, only his healing nature.
When Rhycious loses his grip on reality, he believes his inability to control his disorder will drive Patience away. Nevertheless, desire flares, and Patience draws him close. Kidnapping and betrayal turn their mythic joint venture into a deadly bout.
Will their love endure when survival hinges on trusting each other?
