Being strong is one thing. Being an unlimited source of power is quite another.
Genetically altered by the Organization, Annie Fox takes down criminals CIA-style with her luminary strength. With nothing to mend but her broken heart, she is relentlessly pursued by her boss Derek Lake. Just when Annie is about to give him a chance, her ex-husband unexpectedly comes out of hiding.
A wanted man, Nick Logan is a cold-hearted murderer who is considered enemy number one, and orders are clear: kill on contact. He is more powerful than ever and threatens the lives of those she holds most dear. His plan? Get his hands on Annie and use her Kinetic energy to destroy them all. When Annie finds herself with an opportunity to end him, she pauses, horrified by the scars covering the face she once loved. A split second that will cost her everything …

Questions for S.K. Anthony by Nancy LaRonda Johnson (that's me!)
1- What do you consider to be the trashiest novel you’ve ever read?
Man, I would rather not bash another author’s work…there is a very popular one that has boggled my mind. I’m still not sure what possessed me to read it, but I did. It’s in the erotica genre, and that is all I shall say.
2- What is the most difficult thing for you with regard to writing?
Revisions. That is where I have to decide what stays, what goes, and be completely honest with myself about what isn’t working. Then I have to find solutions. This alone makes my stress levels go way up lol.
3- What is the easiest?
The beginning of a novel. I love putting down new words and let the possibilities take me away!
4- What would your dream life as a writer look like?
I guess being able to stay home as a full-time writer, even after my little ones start going to school.
5- Do you feel you’re on track as to where you want to be as a writer?
I do, yes. I’m only starting out now, and that is better than “dreaming” and not doing anything about it.
6- Is there something you’d like to write that you think most people would be surprised to know about? What is it?
I have a Middle Grade story/series in mind. I know I’m not ready to write it as yet, but eventually, I hope to be “good enough” to give it a shot.
7- Who is the one author you would love to meet?
J.K. Rowling. I might make a complete fool of myself and drool or something, but I would love to meet her nonetheless.
8- What is the one thing someone could say about you as a writer or your book that would just have you beaming with pride and jumping with happiness?
Just that they enjoyed it would make my day ;)
9- Is there a message you hope to get across with your writing?
Hmm… I guess just to believe in love.
10- Please provide a favorite excerpt of your book.
Coming to my feet, I ran into the vault and found myself at the bottom of what seemed like three floors. It was filled with storage units, all next to each other. It reminded me of prison cells, each of them with their own armored doors. I smelled more smoke coming from above, so I ran up the first set of stairs and let my nose guide me. I saw the figure trying to melt one of the armored doors, and I launched myself at him. He was ready for me, though, so I found myself thrown across the room like a ragdoll. I pretended to be injured as he approached me, and when he was close enough, I kicked his feet from under him and he fell, hitting his head on the concrete floor. I jumped on him and pinned his hands down just as he looked up at me.
And there he was, Nick Logan. My ex-husband.
I stared at the face I'd once loved, now with a patch covering his left eye and scars running all the way down his jaw. They were almost hidden under his days-old beard and wild, dark hair. His deep hazel eye looked at me, empty, daring me to speak first. I punched him.
S.K. Anthony is a writer, a reader and a make-stuff-up-er who lives in New York with her husband and toddler twins. She is a wine connoisseur, which just really means she knows she loves it, and a caffeine addict. When she isn’t busy with her family she finds herself being transported into the world of imagination. Well, either that or running away from spiders…she is convinced they are out to get her!
