Today, I’d like to introduce you to debut author, Nancee Cain. Her stories are sharp, unusual, with a dark subject matter but full of hope; as she says, love with a serrated edge. In person, she’s kind, has a wry sense of humor, and takes no prisoners *grin*. So I had to bring her on my blog—so let’s welcome her, and dive right in!
MVF: What prompted you to write your current book?
NC: I actually had a dream and decided to write the story during NaNoWriMo 2013.
MVF: Oh! I love hearing that!
MVF: Tell us about your book:
Evangeline is the town pariah. Everyone knows she’s crazy and was responsible for the death of her last boyfriend. Even her mother left her and moved cross-country. Lonely and desperate, Evie decides to end her life.
Rogue angel Remiel longs to return to earth, but there’s just one problem. He tends to invite trouble and hasn’t been allowed back since Woodstock. The Boss sends him to save Evangeline, but there’s a catch: he can’t reveal his angelic nature, and he must complete the task as Father Remiel Blackson.
Forced together on a cross-country trip, a forbidden romance ignites and love unfolds. A host of heavenly messengers tries to intervene, but Remiel and Evangeline are headed on a collision course to disaster. Will his love save her, or will they both be lost forever?
MVF: I’ve read this—and it made me tear up—just so you know.
MVF: What was the hardest thing about writing this book?
NC:I think the hardest part was during the editing process. My editor had me cut a scene that was my favorite, but she was right to do so, it made the story better.
MVF: I hear you there—always painful.
MVF: The easiest?
NC: This story was the easiest I've ever written, it just flowed. I wish they were all this easy! I knocked out 55,000 words in 30 days and had it complete by Christmas that year.
MVF: WOW!! That is fantastic!
MVF: Your Hero: What does he dislike the most?
NC: Being told what to do. He's a bit headstrong.
MVF: What is his favorite movie?
NC: Easy Rider
MVF: What does he love most about the heroine?
NC: He loves her ability to love wholeheartedly, no matter the consequences.
MVF: Your Heroine: What does she dislike the most?
NC: Therapy and the medications that go along with it. And being alone.
MVF: What is her favorite movie?
NC: Romeo and Juliet
MVF: What does she love the most about the hero?
NC: The way he loves her, flaws and all, and his no BS sense of humor.
MVF: What are you working on now?
NC: I've been polishing my back log of contemporary romances and have two more in development.
MVF: What is your favorite beverage?
MVF: One of the many reasons why I like…Coffee.
During the day, Nancee works as a nurse in the field of addiction to support her coffee and reading habit. Nights are spent writing paranormal and contemporary romances with a serrated edge. Authors are her rock stars, and she’s been known to stalk a few for an autograph, but not in a scary, Stephen King way. Her husband swears her To-Be-Read list on her e-reader qualifies her as a certifiable book hoarder. Always looking to try something new, she dreams of being an extra in a Bollywood film, or a tattoo artist. (Her lack of rhythm and artistic ability may put a damper on both of these dreams.) Her ultimate book hero will always be Atticus Finch.
