Satin Sheets Author of the Month - Claudy Conn

Satin Sheets Romance Author of the Month
~ Claudy Conn ~

I have been asked what my favorite genre of romance is and I have to say, hands down, that it is fantasy/paranormal. Why? Because it goes anywhere and everywhere. What does that mean? Simply put, fantasy/paranormal takes the reader away from the humdrum and gives us a ‘what if’.

I am a very big KarenMarie Moning fan. I have read all her ‘Highlander Series’ and her Fae Series over and over again. However, when I created my Fae series, “Legend”,  I saw the Fae as a brilliant and magical society from another Realm, but that society presented itself to me as very different than what Ms. Moning depicts in her books. How did I get there? Intense research. I read the old narrative poems of Celtic Mythology, and what I discovered was many different points of view when it came to the ‘People of the Light’. I discovered both Fae and Druids that needed their stories to be told, and I discovered my Queen, Aaibhe, and her favorite Prince, Breslyn. After that, I just listened to them, and Legend became an ongoing tale.

I also loved the Twilight Series, which presented us with vampires that didn’t have to be evil, and that totally opened a world of possibilities for me, hence, my Shadow series.

Still hungry to write, I took on the Regency World and decided to make it sensual, sexy, intriguing.

I have been asked to describe myself in three different words. 
1)Happy   2) content   3) naughty(so naughty)

Myriah Fire by Claudy Conn

It started with a stolen kiss …
Fiery Myriah Whitney is wild of nature, contrary, and independent. But when her father catches her kissing the handsome Sir Roland (how else is she to determine if he is the one who will make her feel thunder and lightning, hear bells and music?), he declares that her days of headstrong independence are over. She will, he commands, announce her engagement to Sir Roland—immediately....

Shadow Love Stalkers by Claudy Conn

What do you do when your father wants to turn you into a vampire and the man who offers you protection has his own, dark agenda? Shawna Rawley has no choice but to run. Pentim Rawley, one of the most evil vampires who has ever lived, has just discovered that she is his daughter. Now he’s obsessed with finding and turning her.
