MY BOOK ADDICTION AND MORE PROUDLY PRESENTS….
ROMANTIC SUSPENSE AUTHOR:
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?
