Meet The Savvy Smart Mouth ROOK from the CRIMINAL ELEMENTS series!


1.      Who are you?
o   What is your name?
·   Call me Rook. No, I’m not telling you my real name. I don’t like it. I’m not that guy. And nobody calls me that—take that back, a few people do, but if I could stop them, I would.
o   Are you a fictional or historical character?
·   Fictional
o   What should we know about you?
·   I’m a were-crow. I know most people call people like me ‘shapeshifters’ or ‘shapechangers,’ but I like the term ‘were-crow’—to me, it just has a nice ring to it. And it’s not like I understand how it works. I just know I can do it.
·   I’m also a damn good hacker, if I do say so myself, good enough to get the attention of one of the biggest underworld powers on the East Coast.
·   And lately things are changing. I’m not sure what’s happening to me, but I’m pretty sure I don’t like it.
2.      Tell us about your story:
o   When and where is your tale set?
·   I’ve been sent all over the States for jobs. But if you’re looking for a history lesson, you’re asking the wrong guy. I’m more the ‘live-in-the-moment’ kind. My current ‘when’ is 2010. My current ‘where’ is my hometown of Philly. And I think I’d be taking my life in my hands to tell you where I’m holed up in more detail.
o   What is your personal goal?  I mean, what do you ultimately want?
·   World peace. Oh, you weren’t joking. So barring that, I guess, I think my goal is just to live to see tomorrow. This business of being a professional criminal is dangerous, and I tend to not make big plans for my future because I never really know if I’ll have one.
o   What is standing in your way?  What conflict(s) do you face?
·   More than I know. Oh, I know some of it—the cops, some old enemies, to name a few—but beyond that, I know there’s more stuff between me and victory, but what that ‘stuff’ is, I don’t even know where to start. All I know for sure is that I’m out of my element and out of my depth.
3.      How do I get a copy of your book?
o   What is the title or working title for this piece?
·   Fly by Night
ROOK was introduced to us in Book One of the CRIMINAL ELEMENTS series, PLAYING WITH FIRE, starring protagonists Stone and Renee.
o   Is it available now or when can we expect to see it released?
               ·   It’s available for pre-order now and will be fully released on March 30, 2017.
