Good morning, Alexa, and welcome back to My Book Addiction and More!


MBA&M: Please tell our readers, who may not know you, a few tidbits about Alexa Grace?


My journey as an indie author started in March 2011 when the Sr. Director of Training and Development position I’d held for thirteen years was eliminated. A door closed for me but another one opened. I finally had the time to pursue my dream of writing books — my dream since childhood.  My focus is now on writing riveting romantic suspense novels that take my readers on a wild, hot ride.


MBA&M: For those you do not know, DEADLY DECEPTION is Book 2 in the “Deadly” Trilogy, give our readers an introduction into the “Deadly” Trilogy, please?

Although I’ve lived in Florida since 1985, I grew up in Indiana.  I was drawn to the idea of writing about danger and love in one of the unlikeliest of places — Indiana farmland. The trilogy involves horrific crimes committed in the heartland that are investigated by members of a county sheriff police department.  As a reader, I’ve loved to follow the lives of characters in series so I hoped my readers liked to do the same.

MBA&M:  Tell us about your second book of the trilogy, Deadly Deception.


In Deadly Deception, readers enter the disturbing world of illegal adoptions, baby trafficking and murder with new detective Lane Hansen and private investigator Frankie Douglas.

Lane Hansen has a problem.  He needs a woman to portray his wife in an undercover operation and the only females on his team are either very pregnant or built like linebackers.  Then he remembers gorgeous P.I. Frankie Douglas — a woman who could take his breath away by her beauty and take him down in 2.5 seconds.  Unfortunately, she’s the same woman he treated like a one night stand six months before.

Frankie Douglas has a problem. She wants to rid the world of one baby trafficking killer.  The only way to do that is to partner with Lane Hanson, the man who hurt her by disappearing from her life after a night of mind-blowing sex.

Yes, Frankie has a huge problem; she’s found the one man she wants more than life itself.

But can she find it in her heart to forgive him so together they can stop a killer and baby trafficker?


MBA&M:  What is next after Deadly Deception?

In the third book of the trilogy, Deadly Relations, serial killer of young women hides in plain sight in a quiet county in the Midwest.  He hides behind a friendly face that inspires trust, a personality that is charming and persuasive, and a rage to kill.

Detective Jennifer Brennan knows that an abduction is the equivalent of a nuclear blast to a family.  So when three young women go missing and are found murdered on her watch, she vows to find the killer — or die trying.

Detective Blake Stone has been looking for a woman like Jennifer Brennan his entire life.  Now that he’s found her, can he convince her to trust again?

The two detectives race against time to find the killer before he strikes again.  It is the most important case of their careers.  It could be their last.

I am looking forward to giving readers some realistic insights into the mind of a serial killer in this book using research I’ve collected over the years.

MBA&M: What is next after the “Deadly” trilogy?


My next series will involve a young, female FBI profiler who will be introduced in the third book of the series — Deadly Relations.

MBA&M: What is in your “To read” pile? What genre do you read to relax?


I’m an avid reader of romantic suspense.  I love the books written by Christy Reece, Laura Griffin, Karen Robards, Catherine Mann and more.  I just finished Silenced by Allison Brennan and liked it so much I’m going to start with her first book and work my way through this summer.  I want to read some of the earlier novels of James Patterson.  I like the way he spins a story.

MBA&M: Can you tell our readers, what scene out of DEADLY DECECPTION stands out to you and why?


As you know, I grew up in Indiana and have a fascination for and fear of tornadoes.  I tried to make the tornado scene in Deadly Deception as real and terrifying to my readers as what I’d experienced in the past.

MBA&M: If you were not writing, (thanks for writing, by the way) what would you be doing?


I would probably continue working as a corporate training director.

MBA&M: What do you hope your readers will come away with by reading DEADLY DECEPTION?


I want readers to finish the last chapter of Deadly Deception, sit back and think, “Wow, that book was a fun, wild ride with hot romance, thrilling suspense with a dash of humor.”

I want readers to enjoy reading the book as much as I enjoyed writing it.

MBA&M: Last but not least, tell our readers where to find you and where DEADLY DECEPTION is available?

Can you tell us about your independent self-publishing journey?

My journey started last March when the Sr. Director position I’d held for thirteen years was eliminated. At first I was devastated, and then I decided that life is like a bank account. Once you spend it, it’s gone.
My dream since childhood was to write book after book. So I poured myself into writing Deadly Offerings, my first ebook.  The more I wrote, the more I got into the story and it felt wonderful.
I’d done a lot of Internet research about self-publishing and read articles about the top self-publishers and it inspired me so on December 27th I launched Deadly Offerings.
  What is the best part of independent self-publishing for you?
I went Indie because I want to write what I want, when I want and how I want.  I’m very creative and love the control that comes with self-publishing.  I get to create my book covers, videos, and write about characters I love.  What’s not to like?  🙂
 What will readers like about your book?
I think readers will like the interesting, but everyday characters involved in extraordinary circumstances in Deadly Offerings.  You won’t find princes or billionaires, but you will find characters with interesting personalities, unique wants and needs, and sense of humor.
My book will appeal to romance and romantic suspense readers who like spunky, intelligent heroines and sizzling hot heroes with hearts of gold.  In Deadly Offerings, my readers will fall in love with Michael Brandt and be very concerned about the safety of Anne Mason who is targeted by a serial killer who is using her cornfield in Indiana for a body dump.
Another thing readers will like about my book is that it is a fast-paced, page-turner that has the right mix of romance and suspense.
 Who are your favorite authors in your genre?
I’m an avid reader of romantic suspense and there are many authors in this genre who have my respect.  My current favorite authors are Christy Reece, Karen Robards, Laura Griffin and the prolific Nora Roberts.  Each of these talented women is an expert at spinning an exciting tale around believable and loveable characters.
 What was the most difficult part of the independent self-publishing process for you? The easiest?
Because this is my first book, the most difficult part of independent self-publishing is marketing the book and promoting myself as an Indie Author. The easiest part for me was writing the book.
  Can you tell us what you’re working on right now?
I am working on the second book of the Deadly trilogy Deadly Deception.  This book will involve Frankie Douglas and Lane Hansen from Deadly Offerings and their undercover investigation into a murder and a shady adoption agency.  A sub-plot will involve Frankie’s college age cousin, Jennifer, who is pregnant and is keeping it a secret from family.  Unfortunately for her, she gets involved with the shady adoption agency which puts her into danger.
I’m hoping to launch Deadly Deception in April or May of this year.
Thank you for visiting with us and our readers today!

Deadly Offerings
Anne Mason thinks she’ll be safe living in the Midwest building a wind farm. She may be dead wrong. Someone is dumping bodies in her corn field and telling Anne they are gifts—for her! As the body count rises, Anne realizes a cold-blooded serial killer is patiently waiting and watching her every move. And he won’t stop until he ends her life. It is clear there are no limits to this killer’s thirst for revenge or how far he will go to get it.
Michael Brandt, the ruggedly handsome new County Prosecutor is the last person Anne can trust, but may offer her only chance at survival from a psychopathic killer. But will she survive the passion that rages between them?
