Knights of Stone
Genre: Paranormal erotic romance
Number of pages: 100
Gargoyles, tree witches, and wolf shifters have divided the Isle of Stone after a great battle twenty-five years ago. When Kayla, a tree witch, hears about the unconventional rock concerts in the gargoyle’s territory, she sneaks from her coven and into their territory to see for herself. Night after night, she returns to see one in particular shift into human form and play guitar at these unconventional shows.
For several nights, Mason has kept watch for the pixie-like female. He plans to seduce her, thinking she’s a visitor from another island. When he discovers she’s one of the tree witches, he retreats, attempting to keep his distance. The temptation is strong, but forbidden.
Kayla and Mason attempt to meet in secret, but other elements on the isle command their attention. A magical cloak created by the three clans on the island is thinning, leading to repercussions for all the clans. Kayla and Mason are caught in the middle of it, and their actions may change the fate for all.
Lisa loves stories with dark, brooding heroes and independent, caring heroines. She feels very honored to be a multi-published author since she's wanted to write since the sixth grade. Her travels have provided her with inspiration for various settings in her novels, including deployments while she served in the Marines. She lived in Parris Island, the California desert, and Okinawa, Japan. She also backpacked alone through Europe, and lived in Paris, France, as an au pair before returning to the U.S. and buying a book store. She now lives in New England with her husband, two children, a cat, and many fish.

What is your favorite part of the story, Knights of Stone?
I loved writing the opening scene when you see the gargoyle shifters transform on stage for the first time. Also, any time Mason and Kayla are struggling against their attraction was great to write.
How long did it take you to write Knights of Stone?
I wrote it first as a short story. After it was complete, I kept thinking about it and wanted to explore it more. I then fleshed out the story into a novella and am so glad I did.
If you were stranded on a desert island which of your characters do you want by your side?
Hmm, one of my gargoyle shifters would be handy because they have that protective streak.
What is your typical day like?
I have a day job writing nonfiction so I spend most of the day doing that. In the evening or weekends, I shift over to the other part of my brain where I write fiction, losing myself in the stories.
How do you overcome writer’s block?
Luckily, it’s never happened. Most of the time I’m thinking what if and coming up with ideas for other stories.
What book are you reading now?
I have a weird habit of reading several books at once. One of them is Anne Rice’s Prince Lestat. She came to town recently and signed my copy!
What do you prefer paperback, hardcover, or ebooks?
I read them all. It took awhile for me to get used to my Kindle, but now I go through several short stories and novellas on them. Novels or non-fiction, I tend to read in paperback or hardcover.
