K.S.  Hello MaryLynn!!!! Welcome to the blog. I am so pleased to have you here today. MaryLynn is a local Las Vegas author, like me. I've had the pleasure of chatting with her and I am just thrilled to be featuring her here today on the blog. So, without further ado, why don’t we start off with a small introduction? Tell us a little about yourself. 

I’m a southern girl, grew up in Texas, but moved to Las Vegas in July 2010. This year I will be married to my wonderful husband Patrick nine years. I have 3 children who are grown, no grandchildren yet, but hopefully will sometime in a couple years.

I have worked the past 10 years with companies contracted with the US military, so I was fortunate enough to get to travel to S. Korea and Japan last year for six months.  Right now I am currently in between contracts so I get to focus all my time on my writing.  


K.S.  Any interesting writing quirks or stories you would like to share with my readers?

I guess I do have a writing quirk…while writing I am on Facebook looking at post and answering messages all the while chatting in instant messages and on Skype to a really good friend.


K.S.  When did you realize you wanted to be a writer? What sparked the desire to pen your first novel?

I always loved when my teachers handed out reading and writing assignments. So, really, writing has been a passion since I can remember. When a friend of mine suggested I enter a 5,000 word contest for a werewolf story. I wrote the story and set it aside and didn’t enter the contest. I continued working on a story that I had begun the year before. However, Amber kept calling to me so I went back and her story just flowed and took three months to actually write.

K.S.  What genre do you write?

PNR and PNR erotica


K.S.  What would you say has inspired you most in your writing career? Or, who is your favorite author and why?

I have always loved Sherrilyn Kenyon and her Dark Hunter Series. I love how she created her world. I can immerse myself in her stories and tune everything around me out until I complete the book in one sitting.


K.S.  What does your family think of your writing?

My family enjoys my stories and are very proud to tell everyone they have a family member who is a published author.
K.S.  What was one of the most surprising things you learned while creating your book/s?

I was surprised to find how creative I could really be in forming my characters and my own little world for them to live in.

K.S.  What inspires you?

Having fans contact me telling me how much they enjoyed the story and wanting to know when the next one will be coming out.


K.S.  Can you tell us a little about any of your novels?

Synopsis:
Due to her unusual birth, Amber has abilities no other werewolf has ever possessed. On the run since childhood, the lone wolf avoids contact with other werewolves at all cost, continually moving, constantly looking over her shoulder and always alone. Everything changes when Amber saves a werewolf from the mere brink of death, Blake, the only werewolf to ever protect her. Love blossoms, but not without tribulations when Amber realizes she must help her new pack rescue a member who is being held hostage by a rival pack. Warring with emotions of going from lone wolf to the pack leader’s mate, Amber must decide if she is willing to risk Blake’s life to know true family and friendship despite the fact that the Council is hell bent on locating her and will stop at nothing until she is found. Will Amber’s special abilities be enough to keep everyone safe?


Excerpt:
The wind howled as she ran through the heavily wooded forest. Or was the howling the beast that haunted her? Amber knew she should keep running, but instead stopped in her tracks. She was tired of always running from the darkness that followed her everywhere. She gave in to the hot searing pain and fell to the ground, quickly shedding the clothes that bound her to the human world. Throwing her head back, she screamed when her flesh crawled and her bones began the painful cracking and popping. Rain poured through the trees while Amber clawed at the wet soggy ground, her head feeling like it would explode. The flashes of lightning, followed by the loud rolling thunder, swallowed her howls of pain. On all fours, Amber panted, the transformation was complete. She was alone in her own world of nightmares.
Bright yellow eyes rimmed with black peered out from the dense trees, the silhouette of the large wolf illuminated in the storm as the lightning lit up the night sky. Amber’s sensitive ears heard the drops of rain falling through the trees and bushes, landing on the bed of leaves and wet earth around her. At the sound of rustling leaves, the wolf whipped her head in its direction. Something scampered from tree to tree before stopping dead in its tracks, feeling the presence of danger. The rat’s beady eyes stared into the menacing yellow glow, its body stood motionless. The only thing moving was the twitching of its whiskers as the rodent quickly sniffed the air.
She was hungry, but not for the rat. Amber rose from her hunched position on the sodden leaves. Turning away, she could have sworn the rat gave a sigh of relief as it scampered away. Moving deeper into the woods, Amber knew exactly where she needed to go.
