Interview and Giveaway The Agency: In the Defendant's Chair by Lynn Yvonne Moon

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

A little about myself... I am the author of The Agency Series. At night I teach Government at the local community college and during the day I work as a Government Contracting Officer. I write government conspiracy murder mystery novels  mixing fiction with real life scenarios. You know, the what if stuff. I only write with the name my father gave me, Lynn Yvonne Moon and have no reason to change that. 

Tell us a little about your latest or upcoming release.

My latest release is book four of The Agency Series titled, In The Defendant's Chair. In this novel I mix the horror of woman accused of the murder of her family with the hidden secrets of human genetic manipulation. 

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

All of my novels are based on characters or events that I have experienced. The genetic splicing I write about in my latest novel is real and is happening today. What are the ramifications of our scientists' actions and how will these experiments affect our children of tomorrow?

Is there a theme or message in your work that you would like readers to connect to?

In all my novels, my women character is broken down to the lowest level without any hope of survival. But eventually they pick themselves up and survive their life's nightmare. I want to show my readers that it is okay to feel the world has let you down, but it is up to them to piece everything back together.

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

I've always been interested in science fiction and jumped in feet first on my new young adult series. The publisher loved it and picked it up with the first read. Book one in the series Journey's Travels - Reflection is due for release in May 2015.

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

Maddie Edwards in The Agency Series is my most memorable character. She is strong and willing to do whatever it takes to solve her case. She is not afraid of dying or killing. Makes no difference to her. She has a job to do and nothing will stop her from achieving her goal.

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

Book five, The Agency Series - Aspirations Defined starts out with a large train suddenly showing up in a small town deserted. What is odd is that no one knows how or when it got there. Strange symbols are painted throughout the cabins and one tiny red tennis shoe is hanging in the engine room.

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

My new young adult Science Fiction novels debut in May of 2015. I have a book signing schedule for December 2014 in Norfolk, Virginia and I'm one of the authors invited to speak at Virginia Beach's Author Fest 2014.

What book are you reading now?

          Currently, John Grisham's novel The Racketeer is on my nightstand. I'm also reading an anthology of Magical Realist Fiction for one of my master of fine arts classes. All in all, I read just about everything. I recently finished Dan Brown's Inferno.

They risk their lives as they travel from coast to coast gathering clues and piecing together a strange puzzle where the pieces don’t seem to fit. In The Defendant’s Chair examines the inner working of our US Government and a secret society as they manipulate the human genome in evil seclusion. In a race against time to save the human race, the women must contemplate both the ethical and moral issues of genetic tampering.

The storm raged against the icy rain falling ruthlessly from the cold and dark clouds. Frozen pellets bounced off the windows as loud howling cries of unforgiving wind echoed through the house. The small wooden frame vibrated with each angry gust.

“It’s going to be an ugly night,” Alex commented picking up the small child’s jacket from the back of the sofa. He dropped the miniature item onto the coat rack and smiled at his wife who stood at the kitchen door, arms folded against her chest. A loud bang exploded and she jumped as an eerie chill ran up her spine.

“What was that?” she asked.

“Probably just a branch from an old tree,” he replied glancing out the window. “I’m sure I’ll have a mess to clean up tomorrow.”

“Well, since it’s nasty outside,” Early said taunting him with her swaying hips. “I’ll get your fire going if you start a real one. I’m going to check on the kids.”

“Mmmm,” he mumbled. “You have a deal.”

Early ran her fingers through her fine golden brown hair and grinned. There was nothing better than making love by a warm fire on a cold winter’s night. The wind continued to howl with such force the house trembled with each freezing wave.

I love winter, she thought walking down the hallway.

Early turned twenty-seven a week ago, a young woman just entering her prime. It felt cozy as her bare feet hit the soft hallway carpet. She could only think of her anxiously awaiting husband in the other room.

Early opened Daren’s door first and prayed the child was asleep. Daren’s a healthy, rambunctious seven-year-old who would rather have his teeth pulled than go to bed. As she approached him, Early had to laugh. Daren was on his back with his head on the floor and his butt and legs on his bed, sound asleep.

“Oh my,” Early sighed as she lifted him back into his bed. She covered him and kissed his forehead. Before leaving, she whispered, “I love you baby.”

After Daren it was time to check on the twins, Nevada and Dakota, beautiful three-year- olds she devoted her life to. She tiptoed into their room and could not help but smile. As usual, they were not in their beds but curled up together on the floor between layers upon layers of blankets and pillows.
“Well,” she whispered with a twinkle in her eye, “I’m sure glad I bought those heavy- duty pajamas.” Leaving them to their slumber, she closed their door.

Early began to undress in the hallway. By the time she reached the living room, her bare skin tingled from the cool air.

“Wonderful,” Alex stated not removing his eyes from his striking wife of nine years.

She swayed into his arms. After a long and wanting kiss, Early stepped back and unbuttoned his shirt. Alex handed her a glass of wine as he took a small sip of his, she followed his moves and took several small drinks. He kissed her sitting both glasses on the mantel. He touched and caressed her body, his fingers reaching every place he could find to excite her. They dropped to the floor, their legs entwined. Each slowly becoming more a part of the other as their thoughts and desires merged.
Early slid down between Alex’s legs and his desire swelled. She engulfed his warmth with slow rhythmic movement. She could tell he wanted to explode between her lips. But before he could reach his limit, Early withdrew and gazed up at him. She smiled and he smiled back with a tear in his eye.

“Tell me what you want baby,” he begged. “You want to ride?”

Without responding, Early straddled his waist and slowly guided him into her. He reached up and fondled her firm breasts and excited nipples. As the movement of her thighs and hips increased, his fingers squeezed more firmly against her. She pulled him in deeper rubbing her secret place against his as fast and hard as her hip muscles would allow. Early felt a sudden release of love and longing as she squeezed against his hardened love. Her back arched and she moaned. Alex was next. He exploded inside her as his hands gripped her hips in the heat of the excitement. He moved her back and forth until his strength was gone.

She fell with exhaustion onto his chest and absorbed his love. The rise and fall of his breathing filled her with devotion. Early raised her head until their breaths met. As he exhaled, she inhaled. They were now one with each other.

“I love you, Alex,” Early whispered into his rising and lowering chest.

Gasping for another breath, Alex whispered, “I love you, baby, and don’t you ever forget it.”

They lay together as one until sleep engulfed them. Early slept peacefully next to her husband. She loved him more than life itself; there was nothing Early would not do for him. That night, Early’s dreams were peaceful and serene. She was happy with her life, the only life Early knew.
