Please allow one of my bartenders to get you your favorite flavor....
A peach margarita would be just perfect, thank you!
Ms Caridad, we are going to start this off nice and slow since this is your first time to the Lair. I don't want to scare you too much, lol.
Tell us a little about yourself? For those of us that don't know you yet...
Well, I’m a wife, mom, and lawyer who has also been doing overtime on a writing gig since 1999 when my first novel came out. I write paranormal romance, romantic suspense and a mix of the two that I like to call paranormal suspense. STRONGER THAN SIN (November 2010) is my latest paranormal suspense from Grand Central Publishing and AZTEC GOLD (January 2011) is my current novella from Carina Press. Both are sexy and filled with action, which is just how I like the stories that I read.
Let's share something that you would normally not share anywhere else.
Oh oh, a TMI moment. I’m basically shy. It’s taken me a lot to get over that and be able to meet new people, but it’s definitely been worth it.How did you come about creating the world within your books?
They just come to me when I’m somewhere new. The inspiration for SINS OF THE FLESH and STRONGER THAN SIN came to me while I was taking some time off at the Jersey Shore where the two books are set, and actually, the rest of the SINS/SIN HUNTER series. As for AZTEC GOLD, that idea hit me when I had a chance to visit some pyramids in http://carinapress.com/blog/2011/01/temples-and-demons-and-heights-oh-my/). . You can find out more about that trip at the Carina blog (
What makes them stand out - in your mind?
Both stories are paranormals, but very different from your typical vampires, werewolves and other demons. In the SINS/SIN HUNTER series the paranormal elements from people who have been genetically engineered against their will and have otherworldly powers. That series will get even darker with the next two books as I introduce a race of people who have the unusual ability to gather energy and use it for an assortment of powers. In AZTEC GOLD, the demon is an Aztec demi-goddess who is basically a monster. She’s content to hoard her treasures and eat the locals and it’s up to the hero and heroine to stop her after centuries of abuse.
What do you read when you are in the mood?I read romantic suspense and sexy contemporaries. It’s a nice change of pace.
Don't get to comfortable with the nice questions, I promise, it will get smutty in a minute!
Tell us a little about your writing style.
I used to be pantser, but now I take the time to write out a basic plot. I work on the train ride to and from work and on the weekends, I get up at 6 to write for 3 to 4 hours before tackling the family responsibilities.
What has this writing/publishing experience been like for you?
Okay, last safe question, **pauses** I think, hehehe..
What do we have to look forward to?
2011 will be a very busy year! Besides AZTEC GOLD, there will be Nocturne Bites novellas in the Spring, Summer and Fall. The Fall one (Vampire Genesis) is the most exciting for me as I get to write about Diana and Ryder again. I hope to use that as a springboard for a new series with them. I’m also excited to have a July release with THE FIFTH KINGDOM from Carina Press. This is a romantic suspense set in Mexico again and it is really action-packed as the hero and heroine battle a terrorist group in order to save the heroine’s mom and protect an ancient relic from falling into the wrong hands. Finally, in August the SINS/SIN HUNTER series continues with THE LOST a very dark and sexy paranormal that I hope will really have readers thinking about this new race of Hunters and their incredible powers.
