Aloha! RWA wiped me out and I experienced schedule trouble. I apologize to Sara Humphreys and Sourcebooks for the delay in posting this interview. It is my privilege to host Sara - author extraordinaire and fitness motivator to celebrate the release of VAMPIRE TROUBLE, Book 2 in her Dead in the City series:
A fledgling vampire ignites a war...
Maya remembers the last moments of her life as a human with haunting clarity, and every man she meets pays the price...until Shane. Finding herself in the middle of a bloody fight between vampires and werewolves, Maya has no choice but to let the devastatingly sexy vampire guard get close to her.
And that’s not all that heats up...
Shane Quesada, a four-century-old vampire sentry, is known for his cold, unemotional precision, but once Maya begins to invade his dreams, his world is changed forever. His job to protect her is swiftly replaced by the all-consuming need to claim her as his own.

|Sara (middle) with fans at RT14 in NOLA.
Kim: So great to see you at RT in NOLA. What did you learn from this fan-intense experience?
Sara: Lots of stuff!!!
1. Wear comfortable shoes.
2. Get ready to give lots of hugs.
3. Romance readers are THE BEST ever!
Kim: Let's chat about your childhood crush on Captain Kirk. What would he think of the war between vampires and werewolves?
Sara: Kirk would be on the lookout for the hottest vampire chick and sexiest werewolf lady he could find. He might be a Captain but he's the horniest guy in the universe.
Kim: What inspired the world you created in VAMPIRE TROUBLE?
Sara: I love New York City and on more than one occasion I've wondered what secrets it holds in all those dark corners. It's a gritty, sultry, sexy, decadent, and mysterious city. What better place to host a coven of vampires? If I were a vampire, that's where I'd want to live. A vamp could walk the city streets at night and nobody would give them a second glance. It's the perfect place for a vampire to blend in.
Kim: What's next for Sara Humphreys?
Sara: In February I'll have a new Amoveo Legend novella called UNBOUND and then in March the 3rd Dead in the City novel will be out. VAMPIRES NEVER CRY WOLF is Sadie's story and she hooks up with a certain werewolf prince. Then in July my first contemporary romance will be released. BRAVE THE HEAT is the 1st book in The McGuire Brothers series and I am so excited for readers to get Gavin's story...and his brothers. Did I mention they're all men in uniform?
