One Word Interview with C. Michelle Jeffries

Today, I am pleased to welcome my good friend C. Michelle Jeffries, author of the futuristic suspense thriller, Emergence, to the writing chair. Take it away, Michelle!

Zombie apocalypse! What fictional character do you most want by your side?
Acheron Parthenopaeus from Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark Hunters
Excellent! Sounds like a good guy to have your back.
You've been plunked down in the middle of your latest book. Weapon of choice?
British .338 sniper rifle
Efficient, accurate, and deadly!
You are having your characters over for dinner. What are you serving?
Takeout, I hope. Gives you more time to visit!
You've been transported into a fairy tale. What character are you?
The Snow Queen
Brrrrrr. I think I'd prefer a warmer character, personally. :)
What historical figure would you most like to have lunch with?
George Washington

I am always so interested to see what historical figures people choose. What a great lunch that would be! I wonder what he'd think of America today.

Thanks so much for being with us, Michelle!

C. Michelle Jefferies practically grew up in a library. The oldest daughter of four, she spent hours devouring books with her mother. When she was ten, she realized that she wanted to write stories like the science fiction books she loved to read. In high school, she met another writer that inspired her to write a novel instead of just short stories. She finished that 189 page handwritten novel the summer of her junior year.

A mother of seven, she put her writing on the back burner while she focused on raising her young children, and volunteering as a breastfeeding counselor in her community. When her children were old enough for her to spend a few hours on the computer, without them burning the house down, she returned to writing and hasn't stopped since. Often writing or editing with a baby in her arms or under her feet.

Married to the guy her high school boyfriend introduced her to; she claims the last 20 + years as her education and mission experience. With a love for natural mothering, and a passion for secret agents and all things Asian she writes about bad boys turned good and fantasy of the urban type. All while beating herself up three times a week in Karate class as she works toward her black belt in Tang Soo Do.

A Hitman with a Conscience.

Assassin Antony Danic has never killed an innocent man. At least the corporation he works for has never given him a reason to think otherwise until now. Reeling from a series of demanding assignments, Antony is desperate for some downtime. As he sits on a beach in Tahiti watching his wife play in the ocean, a messenger from his employer delivers a death threat. Suddenly, the hunter has become the hunted. While Antony struggles to find a way out of his till death do us part contract, he's faced with the decision of a lifetime: kill another man who may be innocent, or do what's right even if it puts his family in jeopardy.
