One lucky commenter will win an eBook copy of Glow in the Dark. It will just be you and Jake Gilroy all alone at your reader or computer, as he slowly undresses you, caresses your shoulders with his strong hands, you’ll feel his warm breath on your neck…
Keira carries a vet assistance degree. Her love for animals is as great as her love of people. She gives a percentage of her personal book sale profits to the animal welfare league. Residing in Chicago with her husband and daughter she spends any spare time she has working with her cats Scamper and Sawyer, to achieve total world domination, one shared Twinkie at a time. Her passions include Reading, Writing, Football, Comic Books and nature.
Q: What’s the first thing you did when you received word you’d sold a book?
A: I have a horror short out, Bad moon Rising Over Oz, and a Paranormal Romance coming out in November. But Glow in the Dark was my first contracted book. I pounded the pavement for three years looking for someone to sell my book. So hubby and I danced in the kitchen, squeee. I still dance around just thinking about it.
Q: What part of the book is the easiest for you to write? The end. Why?
A: The way it all ends is what comes to me first along with the character, then the beginning and middle.
Q: What part of the book is the hardest for you? Why?
A: The filler. After I have the beginning, end and middle, I need to go back and put in filler. That is the hardest because you have to keep in line with what is already there, hair color, eye color character actions, etc. I don’t have a good memory as is and you have to remember everything you already wrote so that you don’t contradict yourself.
Q: Who is your favorite character in your book and why?
A: Jake, because he is brave and loyal to a fault. Not to mention a Fireman, who doesn’t love one of those :)
Q: Do all your heroes and all heroines look the same in your mind as you “head write”?
A: No they come to me as real people with names, birthdates, etc. I’m not really a writer just a psycho with people and voices in her head, telling story, LOL. Sometimes I wonder, LOL.
Q: What hobby do you enjoy when not writing?
A: Hobby! Are you freakin kiddin me, LOL. Writing takes over your entire life and eats anything else in its path. You spend more time at that damn desk, than you do with your family. But if you love it, like I do, it’s all so worth it. However, I do love to read and comic books are included in that. We own two businesses. Do those count as hobbies? LOL :)
Tell us where to find you!

Women melt around smokin’ hot Chicago fire fighter Jake Gilroy like butter in a hot pan, getting him dubbed the clichéd and rather false moniker…“the ladies man”. Yet, he never had an interest in anyone, until he meets Corey. She’s different and doesn’t seem to be turning into a pool of goo around him. He wants her and must have her. But she is already taken so he can’t have her…can he?
At first Corey Nolan is resistant to Jake’s advances until a series of events proves that the love between her and her dead beat boyfriend have dissipated a long time ago. It’s then that she begins to think that she and Jake just might have a chance at something real. Until—it becomes clear that someone is stalking her and killing off the people she loves and that her need for Jake may be more than desire—it may be a matter of life and death...
Jake slid his fingers down her arm and across her wrist. A spark lit through her. She gasped and her gaze locked with his. She made no attempt to draw away. Corey couldn’t…she didn’t want to.
“How is it?” He glanced at her scraped and bruised elbow.
Coming out of the trance, she lifted her arm and showed him the slight injury. “Oh, it’s fine.”
“I would have been over sooner, but the other guys got you, and I didn’t want you to be overwhelmed.”
Corey couldn’t conjure up a response. What he said, and how he said it, turned her knees to jelly. She felt like the high school girl who was just noticed by the popular jock. She couldn’t stop staring at his soft, dark brown eyes, even though a sensible voice in her head told her to just walk away and forget him.
“I’m very sorry. But I really have to go.” She peeked around his massive chest to the men beyond. “It was so nice meeting you guys,” she called over, waving. She turned to pick up her bike, then pushed it along and hopped on.
“Stop by anytime,” she heard Jake yell behind her.
She smiled but didn’t turn around. Glancing at her watch, she’d realized she was supposed to have started her first day of work eight minutes ago. Fear made her petal faster.
She hoped she hadn’t lost the job already. But what if she did? How would she pay rent? How would she feed Molly?
