Interview and Giveaway with Anyta Sunday

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

The about me part, yikes. Why is it I find this is always the hardest part? Okay, well here goes . . . I am a writer of many genres ranging from first readers (not yet released, and will have a different pseudonym) to adult contemporary romance.

The Guardian of the Angels trilogy is a YA paranormal romance series, and as well as writing straight love stories, I also write novels featuring gay romances (ranging from New Adult to Adult contemporary).

Under the pseudonym Dru Wellington I also write gay erotic fairy tales/fantasy.

So yeah, quite a range there. But I enjoy dabbling in many different genres—it keeps writing fresh!

Are you a mom ?

Yes, I’m a mama. I have a wonderful five-year-old son, who makes me giggle on a daily basis!

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

Yep. Especially in the beginning, when it was mostly him and I at home. And yet, since having a kid, I’ve never been so organized. I know I don’t have much time in the day, so I really have to buckle down and just do it.

What would your readers be surprised to learn about you?

I don’t like ice cream. I mean, it’s okay if I have to eat it, but yeah . . . it’s just too cold!  I also hate baths. Wrinkly fingers and feet, yuck! I’m a shower girl all the way.

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

Guilty pleasures. Okay, does watching TV series count? Because sometimes I get so carried away with a series I watch six episodes in a row! I love most things Joss Whedon. I also just recently watched all of Chuck, and Psych—both extremely funny shows. Loved them.

Other than watching, and reading (of course!) I love going to cafes and drinking good coffee. I’m very critical of cappuccinos and lattes and flat whites; it has to have just the right amount of froth and creamy texture for me to like it!

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

Ohhh, nice question. Gosh, there are just so many. Whenever I get lost in a book, I wish I’d written it, because it’s just so darn awesome!

Kristin Cashore’s Graceling series comes to mind—how awesome to have written these wonderful stories!

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

Gay historical romance, but I plan to try writing one after I have finished writing Phoenixed, the last in the Guardians trilogy.

Thank you, Creatively Green Write at Home Mom for the interview!

It could be worse for Sylva Lark. She could be dead. A coma was nothing to that. Or her family moving across country for the treatment, leaving her with a big blue mark on her back.

She can handle it.


Except the mark glows and tingles, especially whenever transition helper Atticus Plot (Attic) is close by. She suspects he’s hiding something, and when she stumbles across a torn body bearing the same spiral marking as her own, that suspicion is confirmed.

After a few shaves with death, the truth finally comes out and the battles begin.

But not all her fights are external; her biggest one is the decision she has to make between doing the right thing for the world and giving up her beloved family for good.

Sylva Lark made her choice.

Now she has to adjust to Guardian life. Training. Killing demons. Controlling her powers.

Amongst murder and mayhem, and toeing an unclear line between right and wrong, Sylva and her fellow Guardians must find a way to secure Eirene.

But it’s not easy going up against underworld Queen Furie when those on Sylva’s side are hiding secrets . . .

Will they succeed in protecting the home of the angels? Or will they fail, submitting the heavens to the fate of Furie?

And will Sylva and Attic ever remember what they mean to each other?

Or will they stay forever Lethed?
