1. Who is your favorite character from your book and why?

My favorite character from my books is Sidney, Falcone and Driscoll Investigations’ perky admin. She’s brings out the best in Giulia and Frank. She’s all-natural, always bubbly, and thinks everything’s an adventure. I have the most fun writing her. In Book 3, Veiled Threat, she finally gets to have her all-natural wedding. It was the most fun research I ever did.

2. If you were deserted on an island, who are 3 famous people you would want with you?

If I was on a deserted island, the three famous people I’d want with me are Gerard Butler, Cecilia Bartoli, and Colm Wilkinson. I’m a contralto, so it’d be all about the singing! And The Gerard has the advantage of being real easy on the eyes. I’m sure one of them can fish, and I’m a pretty good cook. We’d manage.

3. Is there an Author that you would really like to meet? Why?

There are so many authors I want to meet: HP Lovecraft. Dickens. MR James. Kazuya Minekura. Hotaru Odagiri. The Brothers Grimm. Patricia McKillip. Um.. they don’t all have to be living, do they?

4. 

  • An actor or a book character you have a crush on? 

I have the worst crush on Sebastian St. Cyr, the hero of CS Harris’ historical mystery series. Of course I also have a wee crush on Ian Rutledge from the Charles Todd series. Antigone—she had strength. Miss Marple—although I love her best in the Margaret Rutherford movies.

5. What are some day jobs you have held?  Have any of them impacted your writing? If so, share an example.

Day Jobs that had an impact on my writing—that’s an easy one. From 1979 to 1983, I was a Franciscan nun. Honestly, that was a 24/7/365 job. On the pedestal, wearing the outfit, under the microscope. So my three published books are about an ex-nun who solves crimes. I have to admit that I’ve never solved a crime in real life… unless I count the time when my kids were 2 and 6. We found abstract designs on the walls of their bedroom—in purple. Then we found a trail of markers laid from the designs to my older son’s bed—all purple markers. At last we found a purple marker stashed under my older son’s pillow. An open and shut case, right? Except my older son used all the markers when he drew—and he never drew on the walls. My younger son, on the other hand, loved purple. It was all he drew with. I sensed a frame up. And I was right. The younger son confessed. Someday I’ll put that in a book.

Alice Loweecey - VeiledThreat

Blurb:

It’s private investigator Giulia Falcone’s second Christmas since leaving the convent. She’s happy to be spending it with Frank Driscoll, even if his switching from boss to boyfriend and back again is giving her whiplash. But Giulia’s holiday is darkened with disturbing news from her friends Anya and Laurel—their adopted baby girl has been kidnapped. When she learns that two kidnappings in nearby communities, both involving same-sex couples, ended with devastating fatalities, Giulia is more determined than ever to return the infant girl to her mothers. With Frank reluctantly backing her and the understaffed police offering little assistance, Giulia goes undercover to snare the kidnappers before they can do further harm.

Loved...loved...loved. Now...since she's finally dealt with the demons of both her parents...if she'd only get pregnant!!! I would really love to see how she combines being the bad-a@@-cop she is with motherhood.

This was my first Patricia Cornwell novel and I really enjoyed. Her relationship with her niece was great. Great story and plot. Can't wait to read the next one.

So awesome to be in Percy's head again! Once again Rick Riordan took me away to the awesome world of Roman/Greek mythology via his demigods. Instead of Camp Halfblood...in this book we visit the counterpart Roman camp, Camp Jupiter. In t...
