Interview with romantic suspense author, WYNTER DANIELS

Today we have a wonderful treat. We have with us the gifted Romantic Suspense and Erotic Romance author, Wynter Daniels!  

First, thanks so much to Maureen for having me here.

Maureen: I am intrigued by your cover.  Tell us more about the cabin and its role in PROTECTIVE CUSTODY.

Wynter: After Megan witnesses a murder, the killer is after her. So her ex, a PI, whisks her off into hiding. He finally takes her to his family's cabin in the woods in rural north Florida. Big things happen at the cabin, but I don't want to reveal what. You'll have to read the book;-)

Maureen: PROTECTIVE CUSTODY is a romantic suspense novel.  Was this always your genre, and if not, what made you switch to it?

Wynter: Before I write romantic suspense, I wrote contemporary erotic romance and before that, straight contemporary romance under the name Dara Edmondson. The journey has been a real learning experience but I find I enjoy the twists and turns of romantic suspense the best.

Maureen: You are an accomplished author of many wonderful books.

Wynter: Thank you. That's sweet of you to say. I hang many of my book covers around my desk in my home office and I am running out of space. At last count I've published about 20. Hard to believe it's that many, but I hope someday to pass the 50 book mark.

Maureen: Does ‘the call’ still give you a thrill?

Wynter: Always. Of course, that very first publication (which was a contest win with a then new e-publisher) was incredibly exciting. After that, getting my first erotic romance published, then moving to Ellora's Cave and most recently to Carina Press. All those milestones gave me that huge thrill. Signing with my agent was a biggie, too.

Maureen: What is next for Wynter Daniels?

Wynter: I have several projects in the works. I am currently working on the second in a series of novellas revolving around a private security agency, brothers who provide protection to rich and famous clients. I am also plotting out a hot series of contemporary romances. 

Protective Custody – Available from Carina Press
Witness to a murder, but no one will believe her…

Shocked by the brutal crime she witnesses through the window of her small office, Megan Jackson calls the police and is devastated when they question the truth of her story. With no body and no evidence of a crime, she’s written off as a nutcase.

Megan suspects the killer saw her face. Terrified, she calls the only person she can trust—her ex-boyfriend and former police officer, Will McCoy.

Despite a devastating breakup, Will jumps at the chance to help the woman who broke his heart. When the killer ramps up the stakes, Will is forced to take her into hiding—where the passion they once shared reignites, deeper and hotter than ever. But can Will keep Megan alive long enough to win back her heart?

Wynter Daniels lives in Central Florida with her husband of more than twenty years and their two nearly grown children. They are all the slaves of two very demanding cats. After careers in marketing and the salon industry, Wynter’s wicked prose begged to be set free. She writes for several publishers including Carina Press
