Today's special guest is the awesomely fabulous Deborah Noel, author of Tangled Bloodlines!!!
Welcome Deborah!!!! Awesome to have you here!!! Inquiring minds want to know, so I’m here to ask the questions. LOL
Thanks for having me Willow! So glad to be here!
1. As a child, who was your favorite superhero and why?
It’s been so long since I was a child! LOL! I don’t really know if I had one. I know that my favorite cartoon was “Speed Racer” ~ I wanted to be Trixie! Does that count?
2. If you were going to take over the world, how would you do it?
I can’t tell you that, it would give away my secret plan! (and I’d probably get in trouble) LOL! Needless to say it includes vampires, werewolves and some good witches spells!! I would probably use some of those Vapors that Brae summoned in “Tangled Blood Lines” while they were having dinner with Rogi during the trip to Germany.
3. Other than writing, what is your favorite thing to do?
Spend time with my husband and our Jack Russell. Love to “people watch” wherever we go.
4. Top 5 favorite bands/songs?
3. Bee Gees
4. Shorty Long (cover band we like to see while down the beach)
5. The Heartbeats (cover band my cousin plays the keyboards for)
5. Top 5 favorite TV shows?
1. Big Bang Theory
2. True Blood
3. Most of the CSI shows
4. Criminal Minds
5. Once Upon a Time
6. If you could make one statement the entire planet would hear and remember, what would it be?
Never give up on your dreams. Be yourself. Don’t do onto someone what you wouldn’t want to be done to you.
7. Social issue nearest and dearest to your heart?
I don’t know if there is
ONE that is
nearest and dearest to my heart. I’m a
big supporter of fire-fighters. And
there is a US Marine friend of mine, MAC,
who is walking across America to each of our 50 States’ Capital to raise
awareness and help for Veterans. “Tangled
Blood Lines” and I are one of his sponsors.
His journey will take 5-6 years to complete and I will be writing a
couple of books telling the story of his travels. Links to his cause can be found on my Facebook
I am also a big fan of helping each other in times of need, especially in today’s economy. That doesn’t always mean monetarily either. There are so many things people can do to help each other. A shoulder to lean on or an ear to listen go a long way. Sharing work leads for jobs, kinds words and kinder acts are also things we can do for each other. Standing together and holding each other up will make a different in a world that seems to be crashing down around us all. United We Stand, Divided We Fall.
8. In your opinion, what characteristics do the best bad guys have in common?
Having great sex appeal and being extremely egotistical seem to be the big ones.
9. What is most likely to put you in a creative mood?
People watching, being in the woods, or down the shore. Most importantly, music.
10. Is there anything you’d like to tell us about your books?
In “Tangled Blood Lines” I tried to bring back the mean and nasty “old-school” vampires while keeping them up-to-date. I wanted to be different, so I added CSI into the mix. And of course, no story is complete without a twist or two and some love. “Tangled Blood Lines” is book one of the “Tangled Legacy Series”. I am working on the sequel and book 1.5 of the sub-series of “Tangled Legacy Series”.
Thanks so much for joining us!!!!! We appreciate you sharing!!!!

“Tangled Blood Lines”
“Old-school vampires have re-surfaced, responsible for brutal murders and more blood than anyone can cope with. Cianna Fitzgerald, a young but 'retired' crime scene investigator, finds herself back in a world she walked away from some years ago.
“She grew up in knowing she possesses superhuman power from her 'Irish pixie' bloodlines. She had retired after a particularly tough case where the victim was her husband’s twin brother. After her brief respite from murders and homicides, Cianna witnesses a killing where the murderer is a vampire. Her daughter goes missing soon after the killing. Cianna and the love she had once pushed out of her life, her estranged husband Declan, travel halfway around the world to try to save their daughter.
“As the mystery unravels, she learns that although she is a half-breed, the other half isn’t 'Irish pixie' as she grew up believing – weaving her into a more tangled history and frightening future than she had bargained for.”
