Lisa Hendrix Interview with Book Monster Reviews
Good afternoon Book Monsters and Literal Addicts, Book Monster Reviews is very pleased to welcome award-winning author Lisa Hendrix to our site today.
In April 1992, she carried a dot matrix printed synopsis into an appointment with a Genuine New York City Editor at a local conference and pitched an idea for a historical romance set in the American West. The editor was interested and requested a partial manuscript, along with assurances that Lisa would buy a better printer. Credit card in hand, Lisa set out to comply. She mailed the proposal a month later, and five months after that, received The Call. Western historical romances HOSTAGE HEART and DRIFTER’S MOON were soon on the shelves, followed by contemporary romantic comedies RAZZLE DAZZLE, TO MARRY AN IRISH ROGUE, and her first single-title lead, RUNAWAY BAY.
Now she’s gone back to her medieval roots with The Immortal Brotherhood, a paranormal historical romance series featuring a crew of Viking warriors cursed to be immortal were-creatures. The series launched with IMMORTAL WARRIOR and IMMORTAL OUTLAW, followed by IMMORTAL CHAMPION in January of 2011. IMMORTAL DEFENDER will appear in 2012, with five more books to come.
Lisa is married, with two nearly grown children, the world’s clumsiest cat, and a couple of fish that refuse to go to the big tank in the sky. Between books, Lisa reads, knits, and occasionally wanders out into the garden. And eats chocolate. With anything.
I love pens and notebooks with the burning white heat of a thousand suns. I can spend hours in an office supply store picking just the right pen(s), and I own stacks of notebooks I may never get around to filling. In college, I owned pens in every color I could find, and took class notes in multiple colors. The colors made it easy for me to recall facts during tests—I could get to the answers in my head by picturing the page and the colors.
I used to be really good at marbles. Seriously. There were only a couple of boys who could beat me, and I still managed to take really good aggies from both of them at different times.
