Whatnots & Doodads by Stacey Kennedy

Stacey Kennedy’s novels are lighthearted fantasy with heart squeezing, thigh-clenching romance, and even give a good chuckle every now and again. But within the stories you’ll find fast paced action, life threatening moments and a big bad villain that needs to be destroyed. Her urban fantasy/paranormal and erotic romance series have hit Amazon Kindle and All Romance Ebooks Bestseller lists. If she isn’t plugging away at her next novel, tending to her two little ones, she’s got her nose deep in a good book. She lives in Ontario, Canada with her husband. Be sure to drop her a line at www.staceykennedy.com, she loves to hear from her readers.

1.  What inspires you as a writer?
Anything and everything. Usually I get my inspiration from the current story I’m working on. A scene will pop into my head, or a new character will develop, or even I’ll see a side character that needs to have their story told. I always go with what my muse wants. I gave up fighting against her a long time ago.
2.  When did you have that ah ha moment when you knew you were a writer?
Easy answer. After I wrote my first book and realized I could do it.
3.  What is your writing process?
I’m a panster trying hard to be a plotter. I do a rough outline of the story, then I fly by the seat of my pants and write the story. Once I’m done, I do a chart that shows the story as a whole so I can get a good look at it. Usually then is when I move chapters around, have to add more, and make sure I’m hitting all the important conflicts, plot and other goodies.
4.  Tell us about your favorite character and why you chose to write about them?
My favorite character is usually the one I’m working on. I love all my characters for all different reasons. I really can’t pick a favorite. That might not make them very happy.
5.  What are you currently working on?
Right now, I’m writing Bite Me, I’m Yours. I’ll be self-publishing this paranormal romance in a month or two. It’s turning out to be quite an action packed, humorous, steamy read!
6.  Any upcoming events?
I love to party so I always have lots of events on the go. You can come see were I’ll be here - http://www.staceykennedy.com/fun/
7.  If you could be anyone you like, who would you be?
Katie MacAlister, because she’s my favorite author and I’d love to get into her creative mind for a little while.
8.  Do you have any advice for new writers and something that a seasoned vet can learn?
Just write and keep writing! The more you do, the better you get at it! And jump on any opportunity you can. One opportunity can lead into another and you don’t want to let them pass you by.

A witch with unruly magic, a demon gone good, lava-hot passion and a tornado of emotions–just another night in Strange Hollow.

For Bryanna, a witch from the Asheville Coven, magic is on the fritz. Shunned by her coven and her boyfriend Layton for her unruly magic, she seeks a new life for herself. It just so happens, fate steps in and brings her to Strange Hollow–a place where being different is not only acceptable, but encouraged.

When Bryanna arrives in Strange Hollow, Zeke, a demon gone good, is burning with Hell’s fire over her. Not only has she set his world ablaze, but he’s found one soul he can save. He’s determined to free her from the insecurities that have damaged her soul.

Together they experience lava-hot passion as they weave their way through a tornado of emotions. But when Layton returns for her, will Zeke’s attempts to break the unworthy cage woven around her be enough to keep her in Strange Hollow forever?
