Interview: The Mermaid’s Sanctuary by Charlie Daye

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

I write under the pen name of Charlie Daye. I'm married to a sexy Italian man who works as Executive Chef for Ruth's Chris Steakhouse and we have an American Bulldog named TinkerBell who likes to hog the bed.

Tell us a little about your latest or upcoming release.

Mermaid's Sanctuary is my most recent release. It's the second book in The Hunter's Series and focus on one of 5 of the Raydon Brothers named Keagan. Their job, as Hunters, is to police the magical community. In this story, Keagan meets Seah, a mermaid princess who finds herself in hot water before landing in Keagan's lap. Their story is definitely an emotional roll-a coaster ride that keeps you going to the end.

Have you ever based your book or characters on actual events or people from your own life?

Absolutely!! Although, I have to throw in the paranormal aspect to stay true to my genre. 

What would your readers be surprised to learn about you?

According to my BFF nothing surprises her about me. I guess that means to expect the unexpected where I'm concerned. I'm always full of surprises.

When you’re not writing what do you do? Do you have any hobbies or guilty pleasures? 

I love to read and watch action movies. So if I'm not writing you either find me in front of the television or tucked away with a book in my  hand.

Which romance book or series (or other genre, if you don’t write romance) do you wish you had written?

The Odd Thomas series by Dean Koontz. I love ghost stories so much it surprises me that I haven't come up with something along those lines yet.

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

I just recently stepped into the Sci/Fi Fantasy genre so I would probably have to go with YA novels.

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

Oh my, this is a hard one only because I have so many. Ok, I can narrow it down to two... Dominic from The House and Markus from the Hunter's series. They are both very much alpha characters... strong, dominate and yet extremely loving in all the ways that matter. These guys are the kind of men that dreams are made of.

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

Mermaid's Sanctuary is the 2nd book in the series, Faerie's Rescue is the third (Markus's story). Faerie's Rescue runs concurrently with MS so you'll see quite a few cross scenes. However, Faerie's Rescue leaves lots of questions unanswered but all will be revealed in the final book in the series The Hunter's Warrior.

What is next for you? Do you have any scheduled upcoming releases or works in  progress?

Yes! My sci/fi fantasy series, Children of Kria, will debut in January. I"m very excited about this series as it will start me in a genre with no real romance. It's something new and I can't wait to share it with you.

What book are you reading now?

The 2nd book in the Cat and Bones series.

Book Description:

Keagan is a Hunter and happy with his current situation. He is single and his only responsibility is to his family and the realms as a Hunter. 

Princess Seah, is the daughter of King Caspian and the most rebellious of all his children. Desperately wanting to be free to swim in the ocean and return to her beloved sanctuary, Seah defies her father's orders to remain in the castle. When she finds herself on the run from trackers from the warring kingdom of King Tahoe she swims for the only place she can think of... Hunter's Beach. 

Keagan and his family of Hunters are celebrating on the beach when they see Seah swimming straight for them. Keagan braces for impact as Seah launches herself out of the water and into his arms as well as his heart. As the two become closer it appears that keeping Seah out of trouble is going to be Keagan's biggest mission yet.
