Last year I had the pleasure of interviewing Linda Wisdom here on Darque Reviews. She’s agreed to share a bit more of her time to catch us up on what she’s been up to and what we’ll be seeing soon.
Hi Linda, welcome back to Darque Reviews!
LW: Thanks for having me back!
KS: The popular Hex series, featuring Jazz Tremaine, has a new installment out from Sourcebooks! Can you tell us a little about Wicked by Any Other Name?
LW: Stasi was introduced in both 50 Ways to Hex Your Lover and Hex Appeal, but now she has a story of her own. She owns a lingerie boutique that also features romance novels and isn’t happy that she’s being sued in Wizards Court for alienation of affection since she’s been accused of hexing a customer’s lingerie sachet. And the plaintiff’s wizard attorney is one hot guy who’s equally interested in her. Even more so that there’s red hearts dancing over both heads, courtesy of Cupid who’s not happy with Stasi venturing into his territory. As if that’s not enough, Moonstone Lake that offers the witches centering has been hexed and the townspeople are starting to act like the residents of Olde Salem where Stasi had once lived. Stasi, the sweet natured witch is now showing her steel backbone as she battles more than one front. Jazz, Nick, Irma and Fluff and Puff also make an appearance to help.
KS: Do you have a set number of books planned for Jazz and the gang?
LW: If all goes well there will be at least 16 books.
KS: Last year you had mentioned the possibility of an upcoming young adult urban fantasy. Is that still in the works?
LW: Yes, it is. At least, it’s with my agent and there’s been interest in the work.
KS: What are you working on now?
LW: I’m drafting out another witch book along with going over a paranormal romantic suspense I’d like to see have a home.
KS: What have you found is the most enjoyable part of the writing process? Why?
LW: My characters. They are so much fun to write about and end up people I’d love to hang out with. It’s what makes my work exciting. I’m always eager to find out what happens next since I’m convinced they’re writing the books.
KS: Is there anything else you’d like to share with readers before we go?
LW: My Hex series along with some of my backlist books have been optioned for TV and/or movies and they’re out there hopefully to end up on screen.
Thanks so much for joining us Linda, it’s been a pleasure!
