Welcome to the blog, Gail Roughton! Her spooky book cover is doing nothing for my fear of flying, but she's a lovely author all the same. Here are her answers to my silly questions~
1. Who would win in a war between cats and bears?
Cats, of course! Cats were worshiped as Gods in ancient Egypt, they’re not going to forget something like that! Smokey hasn’t got a chance!
2. Would you rather get a diagnosis of Benedict Cumberbatch or Engelbert Humperdinck?
I’ll see you your Engelbert Humperdinck and raise you a Harry Connick, Jr.
3. If you could have any fantasy creature for a pet, what would it be and why?
A Falton. You’ve never heard of a Falton? Well, I’m not surprised, you wouldn’t have unless you’ve read a book titled Vanished. They exist in a parallel world I’m acquainted with called Trusca. They look like horses, but they have horns. That’s horns, plural, not horn, singular. Curving, deadly horns that grow out of the sides of their heads, on either side of their ears, like a bull. They’re stronger than horses and smarter than unicorns and nobody owns a Falton. They pick their own masters. (And you thought I was going to say ‘dragon’ or ‘unicorn’, didn’t you?)
4. Are aliens among us?
Oh, you bet your fur they are!! I know quite a few people who can’t be explained any other way, don’t you?
4A. Since there are aliens among us, what would you name a romance about them?
Hmmm, let’s see. The Space Between Us. Aliens No More. Venus Triumphs.
5. Speaking of horrible aliens, how would you help Justin Bieber off the planet?
Do we really have the right to inflict something like that on another planet? I mean, what sort of impression about Earth would that give other worlds? Still, I suppose we could have an intergalactic hyper-drive installed in a Lamborghini. That wouldn’t make him suspicious or anything, whereas it might be a problem getting him on an obvious spacecraft.
6. If you were a superheroine or -hero, what would your special power be?
I’d be a shapeshifter. The possibilities are endless!

Tess Ames thought this trip was just business as usual. Well, other than the added perk of a few days in Jamaica after the conclusion of business. Then the fog rolled in. And Tess's world changed forever. In more ways than one.
About the author:
Gail Roughton is a native of small town Georgia whose Deep South heritage features prominently in much of her work. She’s worked in a law office for close to forty years, during which time she’s raised three children and quite a few attorneys. She’s kept herself more or less sane by writing novels and tossing the completed manuscripts into her closet. A cross-genre writer, Gail’s produced works ranging from humor to romance to thriller to horror, sometimes in the same book. She’s never quite sure herself what to expect when she sits down at the keyboard. Now multi-published by Books We Love, Ltd., her credits include the War-N-Wit, Inc. series, The Color of Seven, Vanished, Country Justice, and Sisters of Prophecy -- Ursula. Currently, Gail is working on Black Turkey Walk, the second in the Country Justice series (which no, she didn't expect to evolve into a series), as well as the Sisters of Prophecy series, co-written with Jude Pittman.
