Specters, Ghosts, Psychics in Irene Peterson's World



Welcome Irene Peterson to the HOT and Sexy Paranormal Memorial Day Giveaway Event.

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

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

Irene :  Well, Kathy, I'm a Jersey girl, born and raised right in the middle of the state.  Went to school here, went to college upstate in Montclair. I just learned last night that the wife (Carmela?) in the Sopranos claimed to have gone there.  That would explain a lot.  But I digress.  I became a writer when I was twelve. My teacher told me I could really write well, and that was enough for me.  I have only stopped writing during the time I had and raised my girls.  As soon as they were old enough to leave me alone for a while, I went right back to writing.  And because of my girls, who are now grown up, I knew I didn't want them to be ashamed of me, so my romances are on the lighter side.  No instruction manuals from me! 

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

Irene: My favorite paranormal topic has to do with psychic phenomena.  As a bit of a sensitive, I am familiar with "those weird feelings" one gets when you feel something nobody else can. I am not a medium...that would freak me out.  I have seen ghosts, though, so Kiss My Ectoplasm contains two great ghosts, and a psychic who can see them and a physicist who can't. 

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

Irene:  When I was ill for some months, I wrote an unvampire novella.  I was so sick, I didn't know if it even made sense. The vampire is the bad guy, not the romantic hero. Turned out it wasn't gibberish, so I put it up on Amazon.  But the hero needed more stories, so I've decided to do at least three.  The first story is called Dead Dreams.  The one I'm working on now is Dead Meat which I hope to have up on Amazon and Nook in mid-June.  The third will be Still Dead.  I haven't gotten around to thinking beyond that, but one never knows.

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

Irene:  My website can be found at www.irenepeterson.com.  I'm on MySpace (can't give it up) and Facebook in two places...just Irene Peterson and Irene Peterson, author.  I'm alive and well at http://peachette48.livejournal.com and there's something going on at Goodreads and LinkedIn and one I always seem to forget.  Google+?

As you can see, I rely on my daughters to help me as they are both incredibly tech savvy and I am just about hopeless and helpless without them. One of my girls does the cover work for me.  She's a genius.  The other one has a real job--she's a geologist.

I love Irene Peterson's droll sense of humor. And her writing is great, too. It was good to read something personal about her.
