Kenya Carlton pens awesome mystery, paranormal, multicultural romance.

Hello, Kenya, and welcome. We’re here today to chat about Gabe and Mia, your hero and heroine of Jaded. Kenya pens mystery/romance, paranormal and multicultural romance. Looking forward to asking all about your story-stars…before we go there, here’s a little about Kenya:

Kenya has a B.A. in Mass communication, Television and Radio. She has fifteen years in production of television and film and five in television engineering. In 2009 Kenya Produced Dawn a short film and Executive Produced Destination Everywhere the pilot for a travel series through her production company Black R.O.K Productions established in 2008.

Okay, let’s get started…anxious to hear about Gabe and Mia…

What drives Gabe, motivates, and/or inspires him?

Gabe is all about creating something great whether it’s beauty through his photography or even a good name for his family with his vineyard.

What’s Mia’s job? What does she do for a living?

Mia is a journalist who is out for answers but has turned into a bit of a Rip Van Winkle since she may be suffering for PSTD.

Give us some insight into Mia. What’s a bit of her back story?

Mia used to be a supermodel, a job merely for financial game.  Her passion was journalism, but after wearing bikinis for many years, no one would take her seriously, so she was shipped off to war torn countries to prove herself.

Tell us what Gabe means to Mia?

I don’t think Mia is ready for Gabe, but it’s a whether you like it or not type of situation.  Gabe has his sights focused on Mia, and he’s not going anywhere.

Who is Mia to Gabe? Can you give us a bit about the first time they met each other?

Mia to Gabe is a challenge.  The first time they met was pure fireworks and not the sexy kind.

Can you tell us about the abilities of Mia? How do they help OR hinder?

Mia is so self-sufficient that she often can’t see what’s right in front of her.  She’s not a shrew by any means, but she does tend to take the long route due to her pride.

Why this location? Anything in particular in real-life that made you select it?

Santa Barbara is beautiful.  I wanted to try to capture something like it but in book form.

Can you share anything about the mystery in the story?

The mystery in this story is the ghost.  Everyone knows the ghost and her past will unravel the whole story but learning how is the sweet spot.

What are you working on now?

I’m working on the follow up to my paranormal novel Sweet as Sin.  It’s coming along nicely.

Sweet As Sin

By Kenya Carlton

Genre: Multicultural Paranormal Romance 

Sweet as Sin Blurb:

The rich and available Captain Drake Devilin had the biggest body count in World War I.  Injected with serum that turned him into something unnatural, Drake’s troop annihilated the enemy, but once his tour ended, Drake was plunged into a world of family tragedy and financial ruin.  

Sienna Caldwell is stunning to even the biggest cynic; with her exotic looks and rich brown skin, the playboy wasn’t exempt from her charms.  Buckling under the pressure of his financially strapped inheritance, Drake makes a deal with the devil to marry the prosperous landowner in order to protect her.  

After one year, he can return the black beauty back to her island and collect on the fortune that will save his family’s reputation, but the task proves far easier said than done.   The war may have made Drake into something lethal, but he soon finds his new bride was born more powerful than he could ever imagine.  Not only does Drake have to figure out a way to keep his hands off his alluring wife, but also he has to make sure she stays alive.

Good Morning, Kenya and welcome to my place. Looking forward to our day together.

It's a tea day for me because later I'm going out for a mocha latte (love those things) and I'm wondering if you'd like me to pick one of those luscious drinks up for you *smile* Be happy to.

I absolutely love hearing about story-stars and an authors process of developing them...can you give us a bit of your process when it comes to say Jaded's Gabe and Mia?

Settle back, woman...we've got lots to discuss *smile*

The blurb sounds great. I love the idea of tackling PTSD. And the ghost sounds interesting and eerie at the same time. Another one for my ever growing TBR pile.

Great interview :)
