Take a look at Kris Norris' latest release.
March 28, 2012
If two’s company and three’s a crowd, then four is bound to be…deadly.
Special Agent Reese Bailey has a new assignment…one not under the jurisdiction of the federal bureau. She’s been hired to identify the person trying to kill the members of one of the hottest rock bands hitting the charts, and three of the hottest men she’s ever laid eyes on. Keeping her distance would be hard if she wasn’t certain they’d come to the same conclusion as all her past encounters…she’s just too different to make the cut.
Mace, Nash and Landon aren’t sure what to think of the incredibly smart federal agent who walks into their life, and into their hearts, they only know she’s the one they’ve been waiting for. It’s clear she’s a professional, not to mention a child protégé who can read their body language while figuring projectile paths in her head. And she’s not one to mix duty with pleasure.
But they aren’t taking no for an answer, not when their souls are on the line. Reese proves to be everything they've ever imagined and more. But the stakes are higher than any of them realize and if she can’t track down the stalker in time, the boys won’t be the only ones playing for keeps.
Read and Excerpt HERE.
Ali: Is there an author that makes you go all “fangirl?”
Kris: Call me crazy, but the one author I go kind of goo goo over is still Stephen King…maybe it’s because I think he’s damn near a god when it comes to writing, or that he suits the ‘horror’ genre. Might be because he was the first author I read and actually got how talented he must be to write what he does. Either way, when one of his books comes out I’m still all…ohhh, a new Stephen King novel…must buy.
Ali: If you could co-write with another author who would it be and why?
Kris: This is a tricky question because to co-write with someone, you really need to share their ‘voice’ somewhat, so the story flows seamlessly despite who’s writing it. And while I’d love to say Stephen King, I’m just not that good at creepy, lol. Actually, my gal pal, Bronwyn Green… I love all her books and her sense of humour. I think I might just survive co-writing with her, as in not having her want to kill me by the end of it.
Ali: What are you looking forward to most about AADNola?
Kris: Other than connecting with all the fantastic readers and authors (and bloggers, lol) I’m really looking forward to exploring New Orleans… and its supposed ‘ghost’ hauntings. I’m quite fascinated with the whole paranormal scene and what better place to investigate the ‘other side’ than where voodoo and rituals are household names.
Ali: The world is under attack and you are forced to run for your life. You only have room for one book in your survival kit, what book do you take?
Kris: 1000 Ways to Cook Critters so They Taste Like Chicken… there’s a book named that, right? There should be.
Okay, if it’s not in ‘print’ yet, I’ll have to go with Four Past Midnight (a collection of stories by Stephen King… because it would always remind me that there is probably something even scarier out there if I stop and think hard enough.)
Ali: Who are your favorite literary characters? (Yours or someone else’s)
Kris: Some of my more classic character choices are…Jack Ryan, Sherlock Holmes, The Beast (from Beauty and the Beast), Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Gandalf, Merlin.
From my works, my faves are Gage and Brooklyn Matthews (Deadly Obsession), Taylor Austin and Kyle Sullivan (from Hard Target), Griffin (Worlds Apart) and Mace (Playing Four Keeps).
Ali: Are there any of your secondary characters you would like to give more life to?
Kris: I’d love to give Caleb, from Worlds Apart, his own story. I quite enjoyed having him be a vital part of the novel, but I definitely think he has what it takes to be his own hero.
Ali: If your friends were asked to describe you in one word what would it be?
Kris: Damn, my first response was Controlled Chaos, but that’s two, so I’ll have to go with the only other word that fits…Extreme. (This is their polite way of saying I’m quite obsessive about some things, but they’re good things, not stuff like locking the door seventeen times or having to have the towels hang a certain way, or all the soup cans lined up.)
*Favorite color: Green
*Favorite food: Grilled chicken salad. (hey, I’m not 20 anymore)
*Boots or heels: Boots (I don’t own heels, lol)
*eReader or Print: iPad (my eReader of choice)
*Beer, Liquor or Wine: Diet Coke (unfortunately, alcohol and I are not on speaking terms)
*Favorite place to get it on besides the bedroom: Shower. (I’d have said the SUV but the wrong stick always gets in the way:)
*Favorite TV Show: Bones
*Favorite Book series (besides your own): Dark Tower, by Stephen King
*Pj’s or Lingerie:Lingerie
*Vampires vs. Shifters: Shifters, as you can still enjoy the sun with them.
I see myself as somewhat obsessive and feel I tend to push the boundaries of common sense sometimes. My friends graciously see me as passionate and adventurous. After all, speed limits are only a guideline and shouting is just my way of rising above the chaos.
I love the outdoors. If I’m not on my computer— or chasing after my three kids— you’ll find me out on a trail somewhere, either running or riding my mountain bike. I love trying new challenges and completed the TransRockies Race this past year.
I started writing some years back, and it took me a while to realize I wasn’t destined for the padded room, and the voices chattering away in my head were really other characters trying to take shape. (And since they weren’t telling me to conquer the human race, I went with it. Though I suppose if they had...)
I love writing erotic novels. I love heroines who kick butt, heroes who are larger than life, and sizzling love scenes that leave you feeling just a bit breathless. I’m looking forward to filling this site with books you’ll love to come back to time and again. So stay tuned, and, as always, enjoy the ride...
