Meet My Guest ~ Author ~ Katya Armock
This author sounds like she loves pets as much as I do. You’ll find out why when you read her interview and book summary. 😉
I like books that are funny and fun to read (and hot!) but also make me think or look at the world in a new way. I am influenced by magic realism, comparative mythology, and esoteric spiritual practices from around the world.
I spent too many years chasing someone else’s definition of success. My life simplified, I returned to my first love of writing.
These days you’ll find me writing, pet sitting, juggling a number of freelance gigs, and reigning as my home’s domestic goddess. I live in the Midwestern U.S. with my husband, dog and cats. Alas, I have, as of yet, been unable to teach my husband how to purr.
What is your favorite color of socks to wear?
Black, although I like socks with patterns on them, too. I have animal socks, Christmas socks, winter socks, etc.
What is your favorite daily wear attire?
I’m happy when I get to stay in my pjs all day.
Do you speak with your dog?
All the time. I talk to all my animals and all my friends animals. I’m also a pet sitter, so that gives me more animals to talk to. So you won’t be surprised that my main character is an animal psychic and has plenty of dialogue with dogs and cats in the book.
Which is your favorite genre of movies? (Comedy/Romance/Suspense/Action/Horror)
I like comedies and sci-fi/fantasy movies because I like to laugh and I also like to be entertained by things that aren’t real life. 🙂
What do you do when you feel very sad or depressed?
I have a moody playlist perfect for a sad mood. I also like baths and ice cream.
Which is the best vacation you’ve ever had?
My husband and I went to Scotland for our tenth anniversary. It was an awesome trip, mostly because we hired a private tour guide from Serenity Scotland.
What kind of kid were you, naughty or nice?
I was nice. My parents had it easy.
What is your idea of fun?
A good book, dinner and conversation with friends, communing with nature, and hanging with my husband and pets.
Which is your favorite time of the day?
The middle of the night. I hate mornings—unless I’m just going to bed.
Which is your most favorite place in this earth?
There are many places I find beautiful, but my favorite place is with my husband. Yep, I’m sappy deep down inside.
Chloe can “talk” to animals…so why can she hear the thoughts of this hot, green-eyed man?
Abandoned by her mother and raised by a father who’d given up on life, Chloe doesn’t let anyone get close. Lucky for her, she can communicate with animals—telepathically. Animals are the only people she needs. When a suspected dogfighting ring comes to her attention, Chloe decides to do a little spying. In her rush to win the dogs’ trust, she almost gets caught.
Until a sexy stranger intervenes, and she finds she can overhear his thoughts. She’s never been able to hear people, and this man’s about as sexy as she’s ever seen. It’s more than intellectual curiosity that drives her to discover his secret: he’s a jaguar shape-shifter, and the presence of this cat among the dogs might be a bit too much to handle. But the animal attraction is just too hot to resist, and the passion between them makes both the sparks—and the fur—fly…
~~ Thanks so much for stopping by. 🙂
