Naima Simone Brings Us a Winged Alpha Male

 Welcome Naima Simone to the HOT and Sexy Paranormal Memorial Day Giveaway Event.

Welcome to the Passion Sense Blog NaimaSimone. Visitors, if you like what you read, please check out her books at:  

BTW, today I’m a guest over at A.C. James Blog and will be giving away 2 copies of Desert of the Damned

**Kathy Kulig: Hello, Naima. Please tell us something about yourself, where you’re from, and how you became a writer.

Naima Simone: Hi, Kathy! Let’s see… I’m a wife, mother and twin (the smarter and nicer one!) who is a Northern—or Yankee, depending on who you’re asking—transplant to the south. I’m Vin Diesel’s secret lover and Donnie Wahlburg’s true love. And that previous sentence should explain how and why I became a writer. LOL! I started writing when I was young. In my first romance the hero was Ralph Tresvant from New Edition, and I was the heroine. Since then I’ve taken the stories out from under the mattresses, the plots have become less shallow—I hope—the writing better—I hope—but the happily-ever-afters are still amazing!

Kathy Kulig: What paranormal elements and characters do you incorporate in your stories? Who are your favor paranormal creatures—Vampires, werewolves, demons, etc.?

Naima Simone: I love adding a variety of mythical species and races in books. Kind of like watching Clash of the Titans and waiting for the next harpy, Pegasus or Medusa to appear so I could ooh and aah over it. In my erotic paranormal romance, Under His Wings, my hero is a hippogryph—yes, like Buckbeak! LOL! Hopefully, he’s sexier! *grin* As far as fave paranormal creatures? I love them all! Vampires, wolves, dragons, griffins… They bring their own strengths, power and weaknesses that make for awesome stories!

Kathy Kulig: What are you working on at the moment? New release coming up?

Naima Simone: I’m working on the second book in the Dark Judgment series called Bitten by Ecstasy. It’s in edits now so I’m hoping for a late summer release from Ellora’s Cave Publishing. My next upcoming release is a romantic suspense with Entangled Publishing. It’s titled Secrets and Sins: Gabriel and is set for release on June 24th, my birthday! I’ll be twenty-five again, and what better birthday gift? LOL! Gabriel is available for pre-order now!

Kathy Kulig: Where can readers find out about you and your books?

Kathy Kulig: Thank you for interviewing today on my Passion Sense Blog. Good luck with Bitten by Ecstasy and Gabriel and we look forward to having you back.

Naima Simone: Thanks, Kathy! And thanks for inviting me to your blog! Happy Memorial Day!

Don't enter me since I own, have read and LOVED Under His Wings.

Just wanted to second Debra's comment.

I can't wait for Gabriel. I'll be picking it up right away since you are an autobuy for me.

Thank you for stopping by and visiting, Ashley! I really love blitz interviews like the one with Kathy. I have fun just answering without censoring until I go back and see what I said. Hee-hee! Makes for some interesting stuff! Especially if I happened to take Nyquil right before...
