Interview and Contest with Bri Clark

Jen: Today we welcome Bri Clark, who also happens to be one of our reviewers, as our guest. Bri, will you please share a short bio with us?

Bri: Usually I use my regular bio here. But I’ll do something different. I as poor, rich, poor again and now I’m at a happy medium. I’ve been married for 10 years. I have 2 teen boys and to daughters. They are specialist in their jobs of tormenting and afflicting their mother. I’m a blogging consultant, reviewer, author and social media marketing consultant.

Jen: Tell us about Glazier and where is can be purchased.

Bri: Well you can find Glazier at http://www.astraeapress.com/index.html#ecwid:category=662267&mode=product&product=3028751. Glazier is my debut novel.


Marie Kincaid and Henry Tennison are the only Glaziers in the world…and fate has allowed them to find each other. But wait is it fate or something or someone more sinister. Here’s the official blurb. Marie Kincaid is devastated after losing her family in a violent crash…so she runs. One morning, she awakes in an infirmary with total memory loss and a new power: Glazier. The cold frozen mists of Glazier’s instincts enable 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. Unsure of how to progress, he endeavors to keep it strictly professional. As far away missions and romantic surroundings entice him into pursuing his deeper desires, he caves. However, Marie’s love changes everything.

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

Jen: At what age did you discover writing? When where you first published? Tell us your call story.

Bri: I first started writing with poetry and short stories when I was 17. My first publication was in a college poetry magazine called Voices. However, I released Familial Witch with Astraea Press this year. Since then I’ve self-published one digital short and contracted two other novels…Glazier with Astraea Press and Mafia Seduzione with Stone House Ink.

Jen: Are there any other writers, published or not, in your family?

Bri: No

Jen: Do you have any “must haves” with you while you’re writing?

Bri: Diet Pepsi, Music, and the internet turned off. I will stay online if I don’t.

Jen: What are your biggest motivations to write? What keeps you going?

Bri: My characters. They are all dynamic and animated in my mind. It’s hard to ignore them and not tell their stories.

Jen: What is it about the romance genre that appeals to you?

Bri: There was a quote on Sex in the City where Charlotte says, “I’ve been dating since I was 15…I’m tired. Where is he?” That pretty much sums it’ up for me. Only I started at 13. Romance for me is the opposite of the realist, mean, diva I am in real life. My heroines are usually everything I am not.

Jen: How much of your actual life gets written into your fictional stories? Have you ever written yourself into a story?

Bri: No…not much at all.

Jen: Do you become attached to your characters and have a hard time letting them go, or are you happy that their story is told and you can move on?

Bri: I haven’t officially finished a characters story yet. Glazier is the first in a series, and so are Caffe’ Seduzione and Familial Witch. Holy cow I guess I am.

Jen: Who are some of your favorite authors and books? What are you reading now?

Bri: Bones and Cat in the Night Huntress series by Jeanine Frost. Valek and Yelena in Maria Snyders Study series.

Jen: What do you do in your free time?

Bri: Read

Jen: What’s next for you?

Bri: I’m working on Mafia Seduzione and the sequel to Familial Witch right now at the same time.
