1--What is the title of your latest release?
2--What’s the “elevator pitch” for your new book?
Vampyre girl, Alpha Were, arranged marriage!
3--How did you decide where your book was going to take place?
I was in the process of moving to the southwest of the US, and I decided to set the book in the southwest of the US. It just felt right!
4--Would you hang out with your protagonist in real life?
I doubt Misery would want to hang out with me (or anyone else except like, three people).

Loyal, sneaky, single-minded.
6--What’s something you learned while writing this book?
That wolves can only have just a couple of eye colors.
7--Do you edit as you draft or wait until you are totally done?
I edit forward, so I don’t go back to edit something that I’ve decided to change while I’m drafting, but I write the rest of the book while keeping that change in mind. (A tip I picked up from the amazing Jesse Sutanto, btw).
8--What’s your favorite foodie indulgence?
I’ve been obsessed with Nutella Biscuits lately.
9--Describe your writing space/office!
It’s currently a mess, because it doubles as my crafting space, and I’ve been working on a flower wall. So… full of Styrofoam and drippings from the hot glue gun…

Nikki Payne - I am obsessed with everything she writes.

There is a fanfiction that changed my life—The Place Between!
12--Tell us about when you got “the call.” (when you found out your book was going to be published)/Or, for indie authors, when you decided to self-publish.
I think it was an email from my agent? I remember being excited for about 45 seconds and then immediately switching to panic that no one would like my book (it’s how my brain works…)
13--What’s your favorite genre to read?
Lately it’s mostly thrillers (and fanfiction).

A tie between P&P 2005, Arrival, Promising Young Woman, and The Last Jedi.

My next contemporary romance, NOT IN LOVE, will be out in Summer 2024.
A dangerous alliance between a Vampyre bride and an Alpha Werewolf becomes a love deep enough to sink your teeth into in this new paranormal romance from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Love, Theoretically and The Love Hypothesis.
Misery Lark, the only daughter of the most powerful Vampyre councilman of the Southwest, is an outcast—again. Her days of living in anonymity among the Humans are over: she has been called upon to uphold a historic peacekeeping alliance between the Vampyres and their mortal enemies, the Weres, and she sees little choice but to surrender herself in the exchange—again...
Weres are ruthless and unpredictable, and their Alpha, Lowe Moreland, is no exception. He rules his pack with absolute authority, but not without justice. And, unlike the Vampyre Council, not without feeling. It’s clear from the way he tracks Misery’s every movement that he doesn’t trust her. If only he knew how right he was….
Because Misery has her own reasons to agree to this marriage of convenience, reasons that have nothing to do with politics or alliances, and everything to do with the only thing she's ever cared about. And she is willing to do whatever it takes to get back what’s hers, even if it means a life alone in Were territory…alone with the wolf.

Ali Hazelwood Sinks Her Teeth into Paranormal Romance
Ali Hazelwood is a multi-published author—alas, of peer-reviewed articles about brain science, in which no one makes out and the ever after is not always happy. Originally from Italy, she lived in Germany and Japan before moving to the U.S. to pursue a Ph.D. in neuroscience. She recently became a professor, which absolutely terrifies her. When Ali is not at work, she can be found running, eating cake pops, or watching sci-fi movies with her two feline overlords (and her slightly-less-feline husband).
