Interview with author Michele Hart

I would like to welcome Michele Hart to my blog, and introduce you to a great writer.



Phyllis: Welcome Michele Hart!!  Please tell us about your new release.

Michele: My spicy new Sci-Fi Romance, Mind-Blown, is about an executive of a medical facility named Jon who falls in deep want for his assistant. Holly rebuffs him with a strict policy of not dating coworkers, but her motivations are deeper than just keeping to company rules. Despite her expressed stand against casual time with him, her eyes twinkle when he enters the room. He wants her too much to give up.

Some resolute snooping on Jon’s part nets him a revelation that their employer is testing mind-control techniques on the employees without their permission or notice. His attraction to Holly a little too blinding, Jon commits federal crimes to see if he could bring down her high walls with a few subliminal cannonballs. It ends in a way no one saw coming, least of all, Jon and Holly. And it affects the entire nation.


Phyllis: OMG, Michele!  This sounds like a great plot - one that will keep people turning the pages.  (and the cover is awesome, too!)  What inspired you to write Mind-Blown?

Michele: Two things Recent research on several new and pretty darn distasteful technologies that will soon confront our society. And, my best friend, Alisha Paige (an awesome writer in her own right), who told me about a strange job interview she’d attended that day. Her description of the event sent me into a writing blitz. Thanks, Alisha!



Phyllis: Isn't it funny where ideas come from?  That's cool about Alisha!  Out of all your stories (either written by you or not), who is your favorite hero and why?

Michele: Oh! That feels like two questions!

Of stories others wrote, F. Paul Wilson has a character named Repairman Jack. He “fixes” things. He’s a hit man for the common people who can’t find justice through normal routes. Repairman Jack was the coolest. I named my favorite hero in my upcoming release, Luminous Nights, after Repairman Jack.

Of all my own stories, I love Jack from Luminous Nights the most. I loved best that his unemotional, single-minded drive to complete his mission recognized his heroine, Rachel, had a few better ideas on how to get it done with a smaller body count. Of course, he had to listen to her when she held an electronic leash around his neck and a laser gun pressed against his temple. And the spears of twenty primitive natives aimed for his chest at her command.

Jon from Mind-Blown did that too, listened to his woman, without the weapon in the temple. Smart guy. Don’t we love men who do that, listen to their better halves without weapons involved? Applause for all those guys.



Phyllis: Oh, I agree with you.  I do love men who do that. (applauds)  So tell me, Michele, what made you become a writer?

Michele: That’s a funny story, really. I owe it to the numb-headedness of a cute and otherwise very intelligent and talented guy. My mate and I were having a big disagreement, and to properly express myself on how very wrong he was, I wrote a story. I gave it to him and, instead of clearly understanding my point of view and admitting his wrongness, he said, “Hey, you’re a pretty good writer.” And thus, it began. He started handing me pop Sci-Fi to read, and I challenged myself to write one. I still love that guy. :-) He continues to entertain me. On our most recent contact, he told me he stands on the street corners of Taiwan, dressed as a superhero named Captain Air, and he asks people not to pollute. What’s not to love? It’s difficult to find his kind.



Phyllis: Oh, he sounds funny!  And I'm grateful he was the one who started your career.  What stories are in your future?

Michele: As of right now, I have the previously mentioned new release, Luminous Nights, coming up in September from Siren-BookStrand. I’m very excited about that. It’s one of my favorite projects. After that, I’m torn between a few different ventures. I have a shapeshifter trilogy already written that I’m considering taking seriously, and I have an idea for a trilogy with two other writers, just one book for me to write, thank goodness. Stories, stories everywhere!



Phyllis: That's great!  I totally relate to 'stories, stories, everywhere'! hahaha  How can your fans get a hold of you? Do you have blogs, website, or a newsletter?

Michele: You can find all that at my web site: http://www.ILoveShapeShifters.com/.

Thanks, Phyllis, for having me as a guest.

Phyllis: You are VERY welcome. It was great to get to know you!  Enjoy your new release and may you have many sales!


Here’s a bite of Mind-Blown:



Jon Paige discovers his employer is developing illicit mind control techniques. He quickly learns how to hijack the system and breaks down his beautiful assistant’s persistent walls. Will Holly forgive him for sneaking into her mind, if she ever learns of it?



Holly Maddox is determined not to dip her pen in the company ink, a policy that’s served her well…until Jon comes along. He steals her mind when he’s in the room, weakens her fortitude with every flash of his flirty eyes and secretive smile. How will she keep herself from falling in love with her boss when he melts her impulse control?



When Jon and Holly decide to sabotage the brain-washing experiments, they learn they’re up against a greater power than they’d bargained for. Doing the right thing risks lives. Will the truth of their beginnings wreck their sizzling affair?
