Join us today as part of Jacquelyn Frank's FORBIDDEN Blog Tour

New York Times bestselling author Jacquelyn Frank is an old and decrepit 44 years old. She can’t remember shit, loves her eight cats to the point of lunacy, and lives in the mountains of Western North Carolina. She prides herself on being a crazy cat lady in the making (if not having already succeeded) and spends her free time rescuing teeny tiny kittens barely big enough to fill the inside of a toilet paper roll. You can watch for upcoming projects at www.jacquelynfrank.com or you can write to her at jackifrankwrites@gmail.com. If you’re writing her to complain about something, make sure you finish the book before you do ;) She loves to mess with your head.

1.   It is easy to see through your work that you have a great passion for it. What others things in your life do you have passion for?
In a word,  CATS!  J Rescuing cats and neonatal kitten care…bottle-feeding that is.

2.   What's your favorite word, least favorite?
Favorite word: Douchebag. There’s just so many of them out there I find it necessary to use it with great frequency. Least favorite? Euthanasia. Because it means we have given up on the life in question, whether justifiably so or not.

3.   What's a saying you say a lot?
Cats are my preference over humans…you don’t see cats leaving cats on the side of the road in a taped up box.

4. Favorite age you've been so far, and why?
It was my late twenties, early thirties. I had a sex life back then! J

5. If you could be born into history as any famous person who would it be and why?
I always say Laura Ingalls Wilder...because her entire life was an adventure be it a good one or a bad one. And Queen Elizabeth I, she was a tough-assed broad and she didn’t need a man or a marriage to do what was best for her people…and she fought men who tried to marry her off tooth and nail. It was extraordinary independence in an age where women were little more than chattel.

6. If you were the opposite sex for one day, what would you look like and what would you do?
Sorry, but I would NEVER want to be a man. Not even for a day. That would skeeve me out, being trapped in a male body.

7. Do you have a secret talent and what is it?
I can pick up a lot of stuff with my toes. I think I’m part orangutan.

8. What would be a question you’d be afraid to tell the truth on?
What is your political view? (transfer political with religious and it’s the same idea.)

9. You have the opportunity to sleep with the movie-celebrity of your choice. Who would it be and why?
Henry Cavill….cuz he’s sooooo pretty.

10.  You discover a beautiful island upon which you may build your own society. You make the rules. What is the first rule you put into place?
No men allowed. 

 11. One night you wake up because you heard a noise. You turn on the light to find that you are surrounded by MUMMIES. The mummies aren't really doing anything, they're just standing around your bed. What do you do?
Umm. Scream. They might be benign dead people, but they are still DEAD PEOPLE!

12.  Your house is on fire, holy shit! You have just enough time to run in there and grab ONE inanimate object. Don't worry, your loved ones and pets have already made it out safely. So what's the one thing you're going to save from that blazing inferno and why?
Duh. My laptop! Because you all would just KILL me if I lost my latest work in progress!

13.    The Angel Of Death has descended upon you. Fortunately, the Angel Of Death is pretty cool and in a good mood, and it offers you a half-hour to do whatever you want before you bite it. Whatchya gonna do in that half-hour?
Eat. I mean…EAT. All the really bad fattening stuff. And smoking some doobage might work. Don’t have to worry about getting in trouble cuz, you know, I’ll be dead in half an hour.

14.  You can erase any horrible experience from your past. What will it be? If you could live one over, what would it be?
There’s a lot in the erase category. The abuse I suffered as a child is probably the main one.

15.   If someone wrote a biography about you, what do you think the title should be?
It Wasn’t Easy.

16. If Hollywood made a movie about your life, whom would you like to see play the lead role as you?
Jeez. Umm…Emma Thompson. I just think she’s an amazing actress and it would take a good one to portray the highs and lows of my life without coming across like a drama queen.

From New York Times  bestselling author Jacquelyn Frank comes this first book in The World of the Nightwalkers—an exciting and sensual new spin-off series in which the Bodywalkers, an ancient race of the night, battles the evil forces who prey on them.
The unexpected happens in an instant. On her way to work, secretary Docia Waverley hurtles into a crashing crossroads, and she quickly begins to suspect that things will never be the same. Then, when a tall, blond, muscular stranger intervenes on her behalf, telling her it is his duty to protect her at all cost, what is just a feeling turns to proof positive. That is, as long as Docia’s savior doesn’t turn out to be a crazed kidnapper.  

When Ram finds Docia, he has no doubt that she is his queen. But as this golden warrior sweeps in to protect her, he feels something more than body heat every time they touch. He is overwhelmed by a searing connection that goes deep into the twin souls inside him. A desire rises in him that is forbidden—this woman is his queen, the mate of his king, his leader, his best friend. And yet Docia is so vulnerable and attractive that she awakens a hunger in Ram that is undeniable, a carnal craving he cannot yield to . . . not without risking the very survival of the Bodywalkers


(The World of Nightwalkers #2)

Publication Date:  March 26, 2013
Preorder Now:

After being brought back from death, police officer Jackson Waverly receives the shock of his life: he has become host to a Bodywalker, a spirit that is reborn in flesh and blood, and part of a proud, ancient race that uses its extraordinary gifts to battle dark, evil forces. Jackson’s spirit is a powerful one—none other than the Egyptian pharaoh Menes, who longs to reunite with his eternal love, the Egyptian queen Hatshepsut.

While Menes is obsessed with finding the perfect vessel for his queen, Jackson cannot stop thinking about Dr. Marissa Anderson, the gorgeous precinct shrink who keeps pushing him to confront his grief over the loss of his K-9 partner. But what Marissa really arouses most in Jackson is intense desire, which is exactly what Menes is looking for. To fight a great enemy, pharaoh and queen must join; but to host Hatshepsut, Marissa will first have to die. Fate has given Jackson a profound choice: save Marissa from Menes’ plan or keep an entire species from the brink of extinction.
