I've battled the Reapers of Chaos before—and survived. But this time I have a Bad, Bad Feeling it's going to be a fight to the death. . .most likely mine.
Yeah, I've got my psychometry magic, my talking sword, Vic, and even the most dangerous Spartan on campus at my side in Logan freaking Quinn, but I'm no match for Loki, the evil Norse god of chaos. I may be Nike's Champion, but at heart, I'm still just Gwen Frost, that weird Gypsy girl everyone at school loves to gossip about.
Then someone I love is put in more danger than ever before, and something inside me snaps. This time, Loki and his Reapers are going down for good . . . or I am. Praise for the international bestselling Mythos Academy series
You’ve wrote about superheroes (Bigtime series), Greek Mythology (Mythos Academy) and people with elemental powers (Elemental Assassin). What other supernatural myths/legends are you drawn to? And would you ever want to write them into a world of your own making?
I’ve just always liked the idea of magic and people having these amazing powers, whether they are superheroes, gods/goddesses, elementals, etc. I really like fairy tales, so I think it would be cool to write a story with characters in a world that has more fairy tale-type magic. That’s one of the ideas that has been in the back of my mind for a while now.
I like a lot of different genres, like westerns, spy thrillers, heist books, etc., so I also think it would be cool to put a magical spin on some of those genres. We’ll see what my crazy imagination dreams up next. LOL.
Other than the Mythos Academy (of course) what are some YA series/books on your must read list that you could recommend?
One of my favorite books is Beauty by Robin McKinley, which is a lovely retelling of the Beauty and the Beast fairy tale.
Some other YA books that I’ve enjoyed are Poison by Bridget Zinn; Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry; and Also Known As by Robin Benway.
As far as YA series, I like the Heist Society series by Ally Carter and the Iron Fey series by Julie Kagawa, among many others.
I know you enjoy reading contemporary romances in your spare time. Have you ever thought about writing in that genre, either adult or YA?
I’ve been mulling over an idea for a contemporary new adult romance. Like you said, I enjoy reading contemporary romances, and I love watching rom-com movies. So I think it would be fun to write my own contemporary romance, whether it’s a new adult or something else. So that’s definitely something that’s on my to-do list for some time in the future.
Other than the next Elemental Assassin books (which I CANNOT wait for) what’s next for you? More Bigtime? New project? Or will you just be focusing on Gin? I know you can’t talk details but any bones you can throw us would be great. LOL.
Thanks! I appreciate that. Right now, I’m working on the 12th Elemental Assassin book, which is scheduled to be released in December 2014. I am hoping to write a least a few more books in my Elemental Assassin series after that one. We’ll see what happens.
I’m also mulling over some ideas for some new series. I’d also like to write and publish more in my Bigtime superhero series. So we’ll see where inspiration strikes, which direction that I decide to go, and what I have time to write.
As always it’s great having you at The Book Nympho and it’s a pleasure “cracking open” any book with your name on it.
Thanks for hosting me on your blog again! I appreciate it. Happy reading, everyone!
