Interview and Giveaway with CT Green



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

I worked in advertising (mostly as a graphic artist) for ten years after giving up my first love – competitive dressage and going to University instead. After life forced me to do a review of where I was going I decided I really wanted to write. I started out in contemporary but immediately switched to PNR (Paranormal Romance) and most recently SFR (Science Fiction Romance) because they let me do really kick-ass things with my characters and world.

Tell us a little about your latest or upcoming release.

I feel like I’ve mentioned The S.E.R.A. Files Vol I a lot! So I’ll say this – Vol II has a cover and is on the way to my brilliant editor and will be arriving in early 2014. The second collection of stories takes us deeper into the action of being a SERA agent, while making sure everyone finds romance and a happily ever after.

Are you a mom?

Yes! I have four children from twelve to almost two. Two boys and two girls. No, we’re not starting a football team : D we’re a blended family. And no we are not having more! (As delicious as they all are : ) )

If yes do you find it hard to juggle writing and parenting?

Yes! Our youngest is at home with me (I did this with my other two – my son and daughter) until she is ready for Kindergarten. We lost our nanny (her boyfriend got transferred to another town) so my day consists of singing nursery rhymes, writing an action scene, finger painting, writing a scorching love scene, making play dough, writing a pivotal emotional scene and helping with homework when the three school age kids come home.

I can’t focus on longer length stories at the moment because I don’t have the big chunks of time to concentrate – but it does mean the heroes and heroines of SERA got their stories told!

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

Some of my characters have traits that remind me of friends and occasionally I might use my experience of something in a book (like archery, which I love). But I’ve never directly used something from my life in a story. Characters are their own people with their own, unique experiences.

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

My guilty pleasure is reading – I don’t have a lot of time to do it and when I am I usually have the nagging voice in my head that says I should be writing instead.

What is in your to read pile?

The King – JR Ward, Dark Skye – Kresley Cole, Burning Dawn – Gena Showalter.

Book Description:

The S.E.R.A. Files Vol 1 – A series of 5 short stories

Story #1 - RECOVERING GABRIEL

Angels are trouble. But a Fairy Godmother is The Law.

Callie Burns works for SERA, the Supernatural Entity Recovery Agency, a.k.a. The Scary Fairies. As a Fairy Godmother, it's Callie's job to grant wishes and deport supernatural creatures back to their plane of existence. Now she's got an angel in her sights Gabriel's a gorgeous, sexy distraction to Callie doing her duty. But she has a reputation to maintain and no smoking hot angel is going to mess that up. Gabriel is determined he's not going anywhere and he'll try everything he can to convince Callie he belongs on Earth. But she's equally determined to get the job done before the angel kills everything in sight—even if that means fulfilling Gabriel's deepest fantasy.

Story #2 - HANDLING MERCURY

Vampires may go for the throat. But a Fairy Godmother will aim lower . . .
Elizabeth and Mercury both work for SERA, the Supernatural Entity Recovery Agency. Despite the fact Elizabeth's a Fairy Godmother and Mercury's a vampire, they make a deadly duo when it comes to deporting supernatural beings. But Mercury and Elizabeth's perfect partnership changes the night a wish is granted.

Now Elizabeth can’t think of Mercury without remembering how sexy the vampire is under his cool demeanor and designer clothes. And Mercury can't forget the taste of Elizabeth's blood nor the desire to have her in every other way as well. Can their partnership survive and will they find a way to grant their very own wishes?

Story #3 - FINDING NAVARRE

A lone wolf is about to find out old dogs can learn new tricks.

Navarre is a werewolf and the Director of SERA. It’s his job to oversee the agents who deport supernatural beings from Earth. He loves his work and his vaunted reputation for remaining calm under pressure. But all that is about to change. Tor is also a werewolf and SERA’s newest agent. He’s out to catch not only the bad guy, but his elusive boss as well. It’s love at first sight for Tor, but Navarre doesn’t seem willing to take another chance on a relationship. When a mission goes bad and suddenly it’s Tor’s life on the line, Navarre must overcome his fears if he’s going to experience true love before it’s too late.


Story #4 - TASTING ABSINTHE

Two’s company, will three prove too much of a crowd?

Absinthe is a Fairy Godmother with SERA and Bryce is her irresistible partner. Absinthe is all about getting to know Bryce away from the job, but he comes with one big problem. His best friend Grey is a werewolf and Absinthe does not do wolves. Bryce is in love with Absinthe. Problem is, he’s also in love with Grey. It will take something extraordinary to bring Grey and Absinthe together. Tracking a cold-blooded killer may just be the start of a beautiful romance. Will Bryce’s stubborn wolf and prejudiced fairy overcome their differences enough to not only stay alive, but form a bond strong enough to last a lifetime?

Story #5 - CHASING SIN

A good SERA Agent knows there’s only one Sin that matters.

As an agent and ‘evaluator’ for SERA, Jane is sent in to re-educate their only male Fairy Godmother before he does something even the Scary Fairies can’t ignore.

Sin’s sick of being the brunt of jokes and the latest pin-up after a nude picture scandal. He’s also indecently fascinated with his new ‘minder’, Jane. When a wish shows Sin a very different side to Jane, he’s desperate to find out more. On the hunt for a supernatural with a dangerous new toy and evil plans, Jane and Sin find out how well they work as a team. But can he get the prim and proper agent to loosen up enough to love a naughty fairy while she tries her very best to reform Sin?
