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 pleased to introduce to you Elysa Hendricks, author of futuristic science fiction romances. Elysa helped found the Windy City Chapter and the Futuristic, Fantasy & Paranormal Chapters of Romance Writers of America and taught workshops on writing at writer’s conferences and at local community colleges. She writes exciting, action-packed stories, and her latest release, Star Raiders, sounds like so much fun! Please enjoy Elysa’s interview as much as I did.
There’s not much to tell about me. I’m 5’6″ tall. I have curly hair and brown eyes. I’m an author, a wife, a mother and a daughter. Everything else is subject to change without notice. Basically my “real” life is beige, bland, and boring, just the way I like it. Though I love writing exciting adventures for my characters, my motto in “real” life is: Boring is good. Excitement is vastly overrated.
Tell us about your current release.
My latest release is STAR RAIDERS, the second in The Star Chronicles my futuristic sci-fi romance series. STAR RAIDERS is what happens when Star Wars meets Pirates of the Caribbean.
A FIERY ENCOUNTER
Like two ill-aligned stars, Shyanne Kedar and Greyson Dane were destined to collide. She was a smuggler’s daughter, and he, an interstellar lawman. Their affair was scorching, dazzling…and ended like a supernova, in a blaze of betrayal.
A LOVE REKINDLED
Ten years later, the flames haven’t cooled. Shyanne’s lush body, the twist of her lips and the fire in her eyes—all radiate the same magnetism that ensnared Greyson before, and now he’s truly her prisoner. But as much as things have changed, they remain exactly the same. Danger threatens. Humanity’s fate hangs in the balance. And though his tempting captor doesn’t know it, if Greyson’s plan succeeds, it will save mankind…and lose him the only woman he ever loved. This time, forever.
STAR RAIDERS was a load of fun to write. When the fate of the universe hangs in the hands of a kick butt, smuggler heroine, and a sexy, intergalactic lawman, what could go wrong?
