Guest Post & Interview with Michele Hart


Gangbusters – Book 3 of I-Marshal Stories
In the end, it’s either you or the demon that comes for you.
Daniel Tierney and his fellow I-Marshals take down the organizations producing the most dangerous substance in the Alliance. But reporter Faith Vedder turns up at the worst times, including Danny’s near-assassination. He’s had enough of her interference and requires her source of information.
Faith won’t tell him anything that compromises her Pulitzer-worthy story, not even under the magic of hot attraction. She doesn’t know she’s surrounded by fallen angels at war. Danny’s not finished making demands. She doesn’t understand until a giant, snorting, winged monster slobbers down her back, threatening to flay her.

The gangbusters can’t delay in their mission to shut down gangs until Danny learns the new criminal kingpin of their world is a man who once held Faith’s heart. In the guise of a gangland executioner named Heretic, Danny will destroy him. Even if it destroys Faith.
Angels are watching. Demons are plotting. Faith is the key.

Hi, Kelly and DemonLover’s Books! I’m pleased to be here. I haven’t “stood in the room” with so many demon lovers (this year) so I am protecting my soul with sacred amulets and incantations. Just in case a demon leaps out at me. I love to be scared, don’t you? I prefer rescue by a handsome angel, but a saucy demon makes sexy entertainment until the good guy shows up. ***Wink!***

Where do you currently live?

Michele: Sunny Central Florida, land of lightning and sand.

 Are you Married? Kids? Pets?

Michele: Single, kid-free, and petless. I roll light for adventure. I hope to get a pet soon, though. Life without a pet is not as rich as life with one, IMO. She will be a sassy Yorkie with a black bow in her perky tresses, and her name will be Alien-Killer Hart. Killer, for short. “Go for the throat, Killer!” Already got her mantra down-pat. And I will take her everywhere wearing a spiked collar.
What/who/how did you get started writing?

Michele: It started some twenty years ago in a debate with a handsome, blue-eyed devil named Torch. I’d fictionalized my argument into a tragic romance. An obsessive English major and launcher of a WMD smile, Torch told me, “Hey, you’re a pretty good writer.” I was miffed that he hadn’t caught my point. A 3rd party said the same thing, so I started writing. I have Torch to thank. He’s one of those people who is so creative, he brings that out in those around him. I wish someone with that marvelous trait in everyone’s lives, or, even better, to be one.

 How many books did you attempt before you were published?

Michele: My eighteenth book was published first, then my fifteenth. At that point, I had thirteen completed books. Three books remain in limbo, and two failed. Failure is a part of success, so I don’t let the failures bother me. Not every story works out, especially at first.

 Do you have any MUST-haves to write? Food, drink, or time?

Michele: Time, isolation, coffee. They are my friends. Chocolate and ice cream often play roles. I’ll forget food and drink. Stopping to cook and eat a full meal annoys me when I’m writing.

 Which novel is your favorite of your books?

Michele: I have favorites of the titles I’ve yet to publish, but of the current available titles, I love best the newest I-Marshal Story, Gangbusters. Studying for it taught me more than any other story for which I’ve prepared. And it taught me a lot about subjects of which I never dreamed I’d study, or, even find a book. Gangs, international trafficking, really hot and exciting technology. Thanks to Amazon, one can find a book on anything.

 Who is your favorite character?

Michele:  Hands-down, it’s the hero of Gangbusters, Danny. He’s a dark, somewhat disturbed anti-hero, at first. He’s a killer, and one might be put off by that…until one sees who he assassinates and for what those people are responsible.

 How many books do you have in the works?

Michele: I’m now working on an I-Marshal free read. Then, it’s time to bring out some of those finished projects from my vault of stories. I’m halfway through an alien-abduction story. I have another completed shape-shifter trilogy ready to hit the re-edit pipeline. I’m planning another I-Marshal trilogy with a dark twist, a superhero short story, and another short story about a woman with a very strange and specific paranormal talent. And I’m going to collaborate with two other authors on a trilogy based on a famous alien story.  :-) I’m trying not to think up a new story. I’m always wishing for six more hours in every day.

For your next book, what is the name and when is the release date?

Michele: The I-Marshal free read is coming up next. It’s called Telekinetic Romeo, and it’s based on a great character in Gangbusters. I’d planned on killing the guy, but he turned out to be a fantastic character, and he begs for his own adventure. Look for that around March.

What inspired you write this book?

Michele: Gangbusters, as is all the I-Marshal Stories, is inspired by my study of historical and modern gangs, and speculation of future crime in space.

Do you need to read the I-Marshal Stories in order?

Michele: No. I’ll endorse reading them in reverse. Start with Gangbusters, then Vigilant, then Luminous Nights. Telekinetic Romeo will be pure fun after that.

What is the 1st book you remember reading and falling in love with?

Michele: It was Greek myth, and I’d cleaned out my elementary school library. I’d had a couple of early propellants into the study of the Greeks and Egyptians. I’d been born and raised on Egypt Lake, and my brother’s and sister’s last name is that of a great Greek king, so I’d been drawn to it. And I’ve never stopped studying ancient myth. 

 What is your favorite quote?

Michele:  I have dozens of quotes on my office walls, but this paraphrase of Edmund Burke moves me the most. “Evil triumphs when good men look away.” It keeps me on a path of vigilance. Another fave: “Evil is done in darkness, good deeds in sunshine.” I love the polarization of good and evil, along with the eery realization that they often exist together. Shiver.

Favorite color?

Michele: Black, like my coffee, comedy, and stories. Very hard to find anything in my purse and closet when everything is black.

 Tell us something no one knows.

Michele: No one knows my bedroom is filled with roses, ballerinas, and dragons.  I love the beauty, grace, and strength. Now everyone knows.  :-)

HighlandHussy said...

I love the name for your soon-to-be pet.

fab interview, and thanks for the free read

Jane Leopold Quinn said...

Hey, Michele, I've read all three I'Marshalls but loved Vigilant the best. You really know how to make these otherworldly guys seem like real men, better than real men. I mean they have human emotions and fears and they fall in love. Good boys. ;-)

Jane

P.S. Have fun with Killer...

Michele Hart said...

Thanks, Rose, Highland, and Jane!

I'm looking forward to my girl Killer. Can't wait to get her.

E. Ayers said...

I loved the interview and thanks for the free book. A little Killer! Yes!
:-)
Your books are wonderful and Danny is quite special.
E.

J.D. Faver said...

Ooh, you hooked me again. I loved Vigilant, and Gangbusters sounds like a strong follow up. You create such multi-dimensional characters and twisted plots. My only complaint is there's no place to put one of your books down. Talk about page-turners!
Great good luck with this one, Michele.
*hugs*

I enjoyed the interview. The book sounds very interesting.

Michele Hart said...

Thank you, bn100! I'm delighted you stopped by.
Sometimes you must stir the demons in you. :-)

Happy reading,
Michele
