SARA Café Welcomes Sasha Best (Writing as Sasha Summers)!

SC:  Welcome Sasha! Okay. Let’s get started. When did you join SARA and for what reason?

SS:  Almost five years ago. I’d left Dallas and the Dallas Area Romance Authors and knew the importance of having a solid writing community.

SC: It certainly helps to have a great support system. Especially since the act of writing is so solitary. What sub-genre of romance stories do you write?

SS: I’m kind of all over the place – I’m published in YA, Sci-Fi, Fantasy, and Contemporary. Unpublished, I have YA dystopian, historical: westerns and Revolutionary War era.

SC:  Wow! That’s a lot of writing hats. What about the romance genre appeals to you?

SS: There’s nothing as wonderful as falling in love and believing in the satisfaction of the happily ever after. J Who doesn’t want that?

SC:  No one I know. Do you consider yourself a romantic?

SS:  Yes – totally.

SC:  What are your ultimate goals as a writer?

SS: To give people a brief escape from the everyday – and maybe let them fall in love a little with an awesome fictional hero.

SC: I can’t wait to hear your reply to this question: If you could have any actor/actress cast as the hero/heroine of your latest work, who would you choose and why?

SS: My latest work is book three of my Boones of Texas series for Harlequin American and I’ve cast Tom Hardy as Fisher and Cat Dennings as Mikayla!

SC:  Excellent casting. I’m a big Tom Hardy fan myself. What do you do when you’re not writing?  Do you have any hidden talents?

SS:  I’m a creative person. I love to draw and paint. I used to paint children’s murals – it’s very relaxing. Also, I LOVE to read. Love, love, love all genres. J

SC:  Name one thing you absolutely can’t write about.

SS: Something truly bad happening to a child. Nope, can’t do it. Turns my stomach and rattles the nerves.

SC: Not a good topic for me, either, Sasha. Thank you so much for taking part in SARA Café. It was fun! And good luck with your writing!

Released! For the Love of Hades by Sasha Summers

Another release this year by SARA Sasha Summers!

FortheLoveofHades_Sasha_FrontCoverquotefinal-682x1024

Hades, God of Death, has no heart. Persephone is determined to prove otherwise…

Hades, the Lord of the Underworld, has no patience for living things or his Olympian brethren. His purpose is order, administering justice to those who enter his realm, and keeping the balance decreed by the Fates. Meeting Persephone sways his focus, her gentle sweetness threatening his control. But he will not be tempted.

Poseidon’s scheming wreaks havoc upon Persephone. Hades has no choice – he must rescue her.

Hades awakens something within the Goddess Persephone. She feels no fear from his brooding presence. In truth, she’s never felt so alive. Every stolen moment together only confirms her instinct: he is meant to be hers. Such a powerful union suit will face opposition – from Olympus, her troubled betrothed, the Fates, even Hades himself – but she is determined to win his heart.

If you’ve read Book One, Medusa, A Love Story, you’ve met Hades… But this book is all Him – and Persephone, of course.

You can find Sasha at sashasummers.com.
