Interview and Giveaway: Pembroke Sinclair

Pembroke Sinclair is a literary jack of all trades, playing her hand at multiple genres. She has written an eclectic mix of fiction ranging from horror to sci-fi and even some westerns. Born in Rock Springs, Wyoming--the home of 56 nationalities--it is no wonder Pembroke ended up so creatively diverse. Her fascination with the notions of good and evil, demons and angels, and how the lines blur have inspired her writing. Pembroke lives in Laramie, Wyoming, with her husband, two spirited boys, a black lab named Ryder, and a rescue kitty named Alia, who happens to be the sweetest, most adorable kitty in the world! She cannot say no to dessert, orange soda, or cinnamon. She loves rats and tatts and rock and roll and wants to be an alien queen when she grows up.

Last week, I had the opportunity to read Pembroke Sinclair's latest book The Appeal of Evil. (You can see my four star review of the book here!) Today, we have an interview with her about her new book! She's also giving away one eBook copy of The Appeal of Evil!

The Interview

Q: Describe The Appeal of Evil for us in one sentence.
A: Katie has to save her soul from Hell.

Q: What inspired you to write The Appeal of Evil?
A: I am fascinated with the notion that it is socially acceptable for women to be intrigued with "bad boys" and want to try to change them.  I started thinking:  "What if the boy was really bad, like demon from Hell bad?" And the story was born.

Q: What was your favorite scene in the book to write? Your least favorite?
A: My favorite to write was the end scene.  It was fun to imagine the fight between the Praesuls and demons.  My least favorite was the hospital scene.  I was never really sure it fit with the book.

Q: If you personally had to choose between Wes and Josh, who would you choose and why?
A: This is a really unfair question.  I know things about both of them that readers don't, and I can't actually pick.  They both have their good sides and their bad sides.

Q: Paranormal fantasy isn’t the only genre you’ve written. Which one has been your favorite?
A: Horror.  I'm a huge fan of horror.

Q: You’re not just going to leave us hanging like this, there has to be a second book, right?!
A: Absolutely!  I'm currently in the process of editing it.  It's called Dealing with Devils.

Q: Are there any other projects you have planned for the future?
A: I recently finished a nonfiction zombie book called Undead Obsessed: Finding Meaning in Zombies, which should be coming out in October.  I also have another zombie book in my head, along with another fantasy book, although it's not paranormal.

Q: Give us three "Good to Know" facts about you. Be creative. Tell us about your first job, the inspiration for your writing, any fun details that enliven your page. Anything you want!
A: When I get really stressed out, I either dream about being chased by zombies or that I'm back in school and haven't gone to class.
My favorite birthday "cake" is brownies with ice cream and caramel syrup.
My boys and I nicknamed my Jeep the Zombie Defense Vehicle.

Rapid Fire!
Favorite Book? Too many to list just one.
Favorite Song? Amazing by Aerosmith
Celebrity Crush? Karl Urban
Early Bird or Night Owl? Early bird
Winter or Summer? Both.  Anytime I can spend with my family makes me happy.
Pepsi or Coke? Neither.  I don't like brown pops.
Chocolate or Vanilla? Both in a twisty cone!
