About the Author Katalina Leon:

I’m an artist, an author, mother and wife. I write for Ellora’s Cave, Loose Id Publishing and a couple new publishers to be announced soon. I try to bring a touch of the mystical and a big sense of adventure to everything I write because I believe there’s a bold, kick-ass heroine inside all of us who wants to take a wild ride with a strong worthy hero.


Author Pages:

 1. What is one of your favorite Myths/legends to write about?
Katalina Leon: I have a few favorites but lately I've been into the Loup-Garou myths of old Europe. Loup-Garou (pronounced loo-garooo) comes from Loup the French word for wolf, and Garou a Frankish word for wolf man. The Loup-Garou used to be something of an obsession in old France and Germany. Our European ancestors used to frighten the children with tales of wolf men lurking in the woods.
2.If you could live back in time, what time period would you choose and why?
 Katalina Leon: I'm a time-traveler at heart. There are so many time periods throughout human history I would love to visit. Since we're talking about Loup-Garou For You, this story takes place in two separate time-periods in two different settings, but the souls and personalities of the main characters are the same. The story is written from Aubert Marston's point of view. Aubert's a wealthy planation owner in 1834 Louisiana. Through vivid dreams and enchanted flashbacks he glimpses a distant past life in the 9th century where he was French knight in the service of King Charlemagne, and married in secret to a Saracen woman with magical powers.
3. Have you ever come across a song that might fit the theme of one of your books?
Katalina Leon: Yes, I love to write to music. I often loop one song and play it into exhaustion until the scene or chapter is finished. Music helps me hold onto a mood or the atmosphere of a scene. I find it essential, I can't seem to write in silence.
4. Do you remember what you felt when you had your first kiss?
Katalina Leon: I felt terrified! I got my first kiss too soon, I believe I was twelve, and the kiss came from someone who had been my arch enemy at school. The boy had been something of a bully and a pest and when he kissed me and said he was in "love" I just thought it was more of his mischief.
5. What do you do when you think nobody is watching?
Katalina Leon: I let my characters talk out loud and use my hands a lot as I talk.
6. What was your favorite childhood book?
Katalina Leon: This is hard to answer. I had a few favorites but Roald Dahl's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory leaped to mind.
7. What is your favorite addition to chocolate?
Katalina Leon: Based on my last answer I'd say the best addition to chocolate would be a golden ticket! But just short of a tour of Wonka's Factory I've been loving combining a few fresh berries with a chocolate truffle after dinner. It's a great mini dessert.
8. What does your husband/significant other say about your writing erotic stories?
Katalina Leon: My husband loves it and he's very supportive. I've dedicated a couple books to him.
9. Besides your own, what is one of your favorite series to keep up with?
Katalina Leon: I absolutely loved Clay and Susan Griffith's Vampire Empire trilogy and I'm looking forward to whatever they choose to write next. They are so creative and talented.
10. What do you think you would be doing if you weren't writing?
Katalina Leon: I'm artist so I'd be painting if I wasn't writing.
11. Do you have any hobbies or activities you enjoy doing?
Katalina Leon: I love yoga. I sit so much that leaving the house everyday to sweat, stretch and socialize is a good thing.
12. What is something you do to de-stress?
Katalina Leon: My husband and I walk our dog together every evening. It's our alone time away work and other stresses. On a good day we brainstorm about art and writing ideas. 
13. We all know about muses...what do you think inspires you to allow your creative juices flowing?
Katalina Leon: My inner muse is a very confident man  with a taste for the dramatic. He always has a  couple solutions to any creative problem. All I have to do is trust him and take care of the practical details." rel="nofollow">a Rafflecopter giveaway
