Welcome, Southern Belle, Bri Clark to my site today!

Hi, Bri! So happy to have you visit with me again. I hope you don't mind me referring to you as a Southern Belle but I have been reading so many books set in the American Civil War lately, I have the Southern states of American implanted permanently in my brain, LOL!

Hope you are well, let's start the interview!

1) Did you set any goals for 2011?

Yes. I plan on releasing 3 novels this year. The first one releases at the end of May.

2) What is the best part of the writing process for you?

The beginning the free fall of the words on the page. Those beautiful moments, usually in the shower or at a restaurant where the muse sparks and you are writing on whatever you can get your hands on.

3) The worst part?

Self editing

4) What is the book you wish you’d written?

Poison Study by Maria Snyder

5) Favourite author/s & book/s?

Tamora Pierce, Maria Snyder, anything they write

6) Tell us about your latest work?

Glazier is a romantic suspense novel with fantasy subplots due to release at the end of May.

7) Tease us with a blurb/short except:

Marie Kincaid suffering the greatest loss a woman can know runs from the pain. Falling asleep deep within the forest she awakes in an infirmary with a loss of memory and a power, she’s always possessed yet never known: Glazier. Glazier enables Marie to embark on a new life free of pain but most importantly free of the past. Heightened senses, accelerated strength, speed, and learning abilities make Marie a perfect candidate to be a spy…also a perfect companion for Henry Tenison…the only other known Glazier.

Henry, a loner and proud rogue finds his world upended when his connection to Marie is forged through Glazier. Unsure of how to progress with any relationship with her he endeavors to keep it strictly platonic and professional. As far away, missions and romantic surroundings entice him into pursuing his deeper desires he caves. However, Marie’ love changes everything.

Determined to free them both of the spy world and hold Abram their superior has over them Henry implements a plot to disappear. However, when things become dangerous in their latest mission, their first undercover, and memories of Marie’s past surface suggesting another man…will Henry’s efforts prove to come too late? If Marie remembers her past, will she still want their future?

8) What is your favorite attribute of the hero and heroine?

Flaws, lots and lots of flaws

9) What’s next?

courage, inner strength

10) Tell me where you write?

In my office or bedroom mostly.

11) Where would you like your career to be in 5 years?

I’d like to have at least 8-10 books out and making enough money to cover my family’s grocery bill every month.

12) Where can we find you?

Great interview, really enjoyed it - especially as you gave me the names of two new authors to check out that I've never read! Can you tell us who Glazier will be published by? Readers love to visit publishers website prior to a release.

Bri is waiting for your comments & questions!


  1. Sounds like an interesting story. I'm very impressed by your goal setting, Bri, especially when your plan is for THREE books out this year!

  2. Thanks Rosemary. I'm a bit of and overwhelmer/achiever. I know I can do it but at what cost. LOL Thanks for having me Rachel.
