1. What draws you to writing? Why did you decide to become a writer?
I’ve always loved creative writing, but I really got drawn in when I started reading paranormal romance. I creating worlds and my own mythology of the paranormal. I love the suspense and action and the romance.
2. Share three funny/quirky/different things about yourself.
- I love crazy, colorful socks.
- I love dancing with the grandbabies.
- I’m a crazy cat lady.
3. The cover is worth a thousand words, how much of the cover designs for the books did you choose or were they designed by someone else?
There are some covers that I have designed but most the time I hire an artist. Even when I hire an artist I work closely with them to get the prefect look.
4. How important are names of the characters in your books? Do you choose the names etc based on liking the way it sounds or the meaning? Do you have any name choosing resources you recommend?
Names are important. I try to come up with so they match the character’s personality and/or background. Also, the first and last name has to roll off the tongue easily when said out loud. It’s about the flow of words as you read.
5. What can your readers look forward to next? Share some details about your WIP?
I’m working a dark fae dystopian fantasy to be released in August that is part of the Charmed Legacy: Dark Fae Hollows multi-author series. Book 2 in the Wolves of Whiskey Hollow is next. I don’t have a date yet. Also, I’m writing YA and NA under the pen name Aleah Raynes.
Thank you for this candid interview, Lia. I wish you lots of success for your future books.
Wolves of Whiskey Hollow, book 1
By Lia Davis
Release Date: May 9th, 2017
Cooper Reed will do anything to keep his sister and adopted daughter safe from the demented rogue Alpha of the Bloodrose Creek Pack. That includes killing anyone who threatens his family and going on the run. He is willing to do whatever it takes. He isn’t prepared to find his mate in the midst of the chaos. When even more secrets and dangers come to light, Dana and Cooper must band together to stop the rogue and his minions before all is lost. But will their bond be enough to harness the power needed to defeat such a foe?
first few years had been good, and she’d actually believed she could grow to love him. She’d trusted him to be the strong Alpha that her father was.
broke her in ways she wasn’t sure could be fixed. She’d learned to hide the witch’s power from him, containing it deep within her soul. But that power had only grown, and now, it wanted out. “You don’t have to go.” Dana squeezed her eyes shut and willed away the ache in her head and her chest. Her twin brother’s soft plea hurt on so many levels. In all of their hundred years of life, they’d never been separated. Never needed to be. They were linked through a familial bond, as well as psychically. Since Darin had taken over Whiskey Hollow as the Pack Alpha, his power was now hers. And her agony was his. She couldn’t stay, knowing that she caused him pain and may one day hurt him physically. “Dare, we both know I can’t stay. Our link is too strong, and I’m not sure how much longer I can hold my wolf back from challenging you. She grows more aggressive as the poison inside me grows. A healthy Pack can’t survive with two Alphas.”
would be okay. But she couldn’t. “Where will you go?” Dana shrugged. “Not sure. North, maybe.” Darin shoved his hands into his pockets. “I can call a few Packs and ask if you can stay in their territory.” She sighed and shook her head. “I’m not going to put any other Pack in
jeopardy. I know where the neutral zones are, and I plan to stay within them.” The truth was, she had a place about twenty miles west of Whiskey Hollow. However, she didn’t want to tell her brother that was where she planned to go. Although, he’d find her anyway. And he would, just to keep tabs on her. She needed the time to get control of her wolf and the growing power within her. “Take an enforcer with you.” Dana whirled on her twin and snarled. “I am not taking anyone with me. I’m not helpless, and I don’t need a fucking babysitter.” His wolf flashed in his blue eyes, and he curled his upper lip. “I know you don’t need a babysitter, but shit happens.” She strode to him, placed a hand on the center of his chest, and felt the beating of his heart through the thin cotton T-shirt he wore. Instantly, she calmed. That was Darin’s gift as a charmed one—a shifter with magic in their bloodline. “The time has come where I need to search for my own Pack.” There, she’d said it. Up until then, she’d let her brother believe that her leaving was temporary, that she’d return. However, she didn’t plan on
coming back. “Look. You may be fine with lying to yourself, but I have to face reality. The Alpha blood runs thick in my veins, just as it does in yours. Being mated to Ross only added a shit ton of fuel to the fire.” She stepped back and turned away from him. The unspoken words lingered between them. Her guilt for mating the former Alpha had further distorted the Pack and left her bitter. Especially after she’d watched the bastard kill her parents. When Darin had killed the asshole and claimed the Pack, Dana was no longer responsible for protecting it against her mate.
Yet, the hurt, the anger, and the power she’d gained from Ross had damaged something inside her. Had broken her on a level she hadn’t thought possible. She feared she’d go rogue, mindless and bloodthirsty.
