Awesome Romance Author Alexa Bourne

Alexa Bourne Hear My Cry

My awesome romance author this week is fellow Kiss of Death member, Alexa Bourne. Alexa writes romantic suspense, loves Scotland, and adores pizza! Oh my! That makes us twins at heart.

Alexa shares with some things she loves and some details about her newly released romantic suspense Hear My Cry.

So Alexa…

Is there an event in your life that affected you as a writer?

It’s going to sound silly, but the TV show The A-Team (yes, dating myself here!) was what drove me to write suspense. I loved the interactions with the characters and how the bad guys always got what they deserved. I wrote fan fiction for the show when I was in middle school and actually sent it to the TV show address! (I got a nice letter and cast picture back.)

What do you do when you are not writing?

I’m a teacher so I’m probably grading or doing lesson plans! Other activities? I love reading, of course, and watching sports, hanging out with friends and family, planning my next trip.

What are some of your favorite things?

Scotland is my happy place. I tell everyone I’d move tomorrow if I could support myself. Pizza is my favorite food. I’d eat it for every meal if I didn’t gain weight with it. I love traveling. I get antsy when I’ve been in my city too long. In country or overseas, I love to travel. There’s something beautiful no matter where you go.

Do your travels influence your writing?

Yes, I tend to set stories in places I’ve lived or visited. I like to try to bring the reader into the villages, towns, countries I’ve been to in order to get a taste of the experiences I’ve had.

Can you tell us about any other upcoming books, series, or writing plans?

My Protector Cell series, of which HEAR MY CRY is book #1, should be 4 books as of right now (maybe more??). It’s been interesting for me because making a series that is connected and chronological is difficult. It’s a bigger challenge from stand-alone books because I have to remember details from previous books and I have to plant hints in one book for a story 2 books away, for example. I’ve been enjoying it, though! I like stretching myself as a writer when I can.

How did you come up with the title?

I knew I wanted the titles to reflect the special abilities/superpowers of the main characters for the book. Harper, the heroine in HEAR MY CRY, loses her hearing. The story revolves around that loss and when she gets her hearing back.

What project are you working on now or what book will be next?

HEAR MY CRY came out last month so I’ve been trying to get the word out about it. I’m also looking forward to finishing up the 2nd book in the Protector Cell series, tentatively called MOVE MY HEART. It is the story of 2 characters from HEAR MY CRY and the main character is telekinetic. I’m hoping it will be accepted and released in the beginning of next year.


Hear My Cry

hear-my-cry-evernightpublishing-2016Book 1 of The Protector Cell series- Just Released 9/15/16

Harper Monroe has simple goals- work her day job, pay her debts and finish culinary school. But life rarely goes as planned. When two lunatics spouting off weird phrases attempt to kidnap her, Harper’s world turns upside down.

All bartender Scott Jackson wants after work is his couch, a Longhorn game and a cold beer. Instead, he interrupts a kidnapping and ends up in the ER. Once he’s treated, curiosity sends him in search of the woman he saved.

Harper has lost her hearing, but has no other medical problems to keep her in the hospital. When she is released, Scott’s conscience demands he continue his role as protector. Unfortunately, doing so puts both their lives in danger.

As Harper and Scott spend time together, Harper’s hearing returns. Only now she can hear everything. All Harper wants to do is go back to her simple life, but she knows she must focus first on why someone wants to kidnap her. Scott agrees and takes her to visit to a good friend who runs a security business. While there, they unravel details of The Protector Cell, a secret society of men and women with superpowers. Even more unnerving is learning Harper is a member of this society.

Unfortunately, The Collectors, the group of people hunting the Protectors, make Harper their number one target. They drag her and Scott down a dangerous path where Harper will have to choose: deny her frightening future or use her new skills to save the man she’s grown to love.
