Interview with Kym Grosso






Please share a little about yourself, your genres, any other pen names you use.

Thanks so much for hosting me on my virtual book tour for my new release, Tristan’s Lyceum Wolves.  I really appreciate the opportunity to do an author interview.  It is great to be here with you and your readers!

I am the author of the erotic paranormal romance series, The Immortals of New Orleans. The series currently includes Kade's Dark Embrace (Immortals of New Orleans, Book 1), Luca's Magic Embrace (Immortals of New Orleans, Book 2) and Tristan's Lyceum Wolves (Immortals of New Orleans, Book 3).

In addition to romance, I’ve written and published several articles about autism, and I am passionate about autism advocacy.  I write autism articles on PsychologyToday.com and AutismInRealLife.com.  I’m also honored to be a contributing essay author in new release, Chicken Soup for the Soul: Raising Kids on the Spectrum.

Tell us a little about your latest or upcoming release.

Tristan’s Lyceum Wolves is the third book in the Immortals of New Orleans series and is an erotic paranormal romance.  At the end of Luca’s Magic Embrace, the charismatic and powerful Lyceum Wolves' Alpha, Tristan Livingston, endures an attack on his pack.  His nightclub is set ablaze, and he’s crushed in a building collapse.  In a show of strength, not only does Tristan survive it, he orchestrates the rebuild of his chic, state-of-the-art nightclub within a week. In his quest to mete out justice, he rescues a beautiful witness who may be the key to helping him find the perpetrators.

Dr. Kalli Williams, dedicated veterinarian, is hiding a secret that endangers not only her own life but the lives of wolves across the country. After being tortured by a savage vampire, she's reluctantly agrees to help the sexy Alpha in his quest to identify suspects; ones who'd kill her on the spot if they knew she existed. As Kalli places herself in the hands of the dominant wolf, she soon finds she wants nothing more than to submit.

Tristan, committed to ruling his pack as a lone wolf, is inexplicably drawn to the mysterious and enticing woman, who seems more than human, but not quite supernatural. As he discovers her secret, he teaches her the meaning of trust, helping her learn how to be true to her nature.  Will he succumb to the visceral need to claim her, acknowledging the soul binding connection between an Alpha and his mate?  And will he prevail against the menacing enemy who threatens to destroy Lyceum Wolves?

Are you a mom (or parent)? If yes do you find it hard to juggle writing and parenting?

Yes. With juggling writing and parenting, I suppose it is like anything else in family life, it is a balance.  I try to write when my kids are in school, but with book promotion, I’m often on the computer at night as well.  Regardless of what’s happening, my kids always come first. 

Is there a genre(s) that you’d like to write that you haven’t tackled yet?

Definitely.  One of the things about all my books is that even though they have steamy hot love scenes, they all have a bit of a mystery/romantic suspense feel to them.  So I’d love to write a contemporary romantic suspense someday.  I’ve also considered writing straight erotic romance – no paranormal involved.  I started writing a novella (I’m about 12,000 words into it) but I didn’t finish it yet. 

The Immortals of New Orleans series is a priority for me right now, as is continuing to write about autism on PsychologyToday.com.  I have all these ideas but not enough time to write. J

Of all the characters you’ve ever written, who is your favorite and why?

This is a great question.  And as an author, you do find yourself having relationship with the characters.  When I’m writing, they feel like real people having real conversations even though they are entirely fictional and all in my own head.  It’s kind of funny. 

Tristan is by far the sexist male I’ve ever written.  From business to sex, he’s completely confident in everything he does.  While he’s very dominant, he has a great sense of humor about him.  He’s a little bit of a bad boy as well; likes to ride his Harley, exudes sexuality and could care less if people see him naked after he shifts.  There’s a scene in Luca’s book when he transforms from wolf to man if front of Samantha and just starts talking to her nonchalantly as if he isn’t nude.  At some point, Luca looks at him and is like, “Really wolf?  Where’re your clothes?”  He just so confident and sure of his nature; he doesn’t ever pretend to be anything he isn’t.  He’s pure Alpha wolf.

If this book is part of a series…what is the next book? Any details you can share?

The next book in the series will be Logan’s book.  In Tristan’s Lyceum Wolves, Logan is Tristan’s beta.  But by the end of the book, there is a surprise ending which leaves Logan in unforeseen circumstances.  Without telling spoilers, Logan’s life is about change as he takes on new responsibilities and finds himself back in New Orleans.

What book are you reading now?  What is in your to read pile?

I’m currently reading Slayer’s Kiss: The Shadow Slayer by Cassi Carver.  As for my “to read pile”, I’m still waiting to read, Lover At Last by JR Ward.  My print copy should be coming in the mail any day now.  Can’t wait!

An erotic paranormal romance…

Charismatic and powerful Lyceum Wolves’ Alpha, Tristan Livingston, is out for revenge after a devastating attack on his pack. Not only did he survive a building collapse, he orchestrated the rebuild of his chic, state-of-the-art nightclub within a week. Determined to mete out justice, he rescues a beautiful witness who may be the key to helping him find the perpetrators.

As Kalli places herself in the hands of the dominant wolf, she soon finds she wants nothing more than to submit.

Tristan, committed to ruling his pack as a lone wolf, is inexplicably drawn to the mysterious and enticing woman, who seems more than human, but not quite supernatural. As he discovers her secret, he teaches her the meaning of trust, helping her learn how to be true to her nature. After living a lifetime alone, will he succumb to the visceral need to claim her, acknowledging the soul binding connection between an Alpha and his mate? And will he prevail against the menacing enemy who threatens to destroy Lyceum Wolves?
