GENRE: Romantic Suspense
Nothing comes between Tori Whitlock and her tornado chase season — not a serial killer, not even the hot FBI agent who’s vowed to save her life. But Detective Jack Mathis plays tough. Ending this case isn’t just his job, it’s his mission. And he finally has the advantage.
He faces Tori’s hostility and objections head-on, interjecting himself into every aspect of her life, and leaving him no time to dwell on his own.
Through the twists and turns of the madman’s game, Tori is forced to adapt to her unwelcome circumstances. Still, she fights Jack’s presence, and her attraction to him, as he tries to open doors better left closed.
For Tori and Jack, life and death decisions are part of their jobs. But, can they overcome their pasts and realize that there’s a difference between life and living?
This meeting isn’t about Glenn and his new show.”
Tori checked Cam and Dwayne to see if they were as confused as she was, but neither one was looking at her. She sat back and cocked her head. “Then what?”
Alan tugged at his shirt collar. “The emails. Cam gave them to me. And I gave them to the FBI.”
Her head swiveled to Cam, her voice low and menacing. “You rat bastard. I want my key back. You had no right.”
Cam’s steady eyes assessed her. “Would you have turned in the emails?”
Tori rolled her eyes. “Of course not. I –”
“Exactly. I had no choice but to be the responsible one.”
“Responsible my –”
Alan raised his voice, interrupting their spat. “Either way, the FBI thinks the emails are credible enough that they’re sending their lead agent on the case down here to become your best friend for a little while.”
Fingers dug into the chair’s padded fake leather arms as she shot a pointed look at Cam. “I don’t need another ‘friend.’ I’ve got enough of them already. What’s he going to do, live with me?”
“Probably. And chase with you, too.”
Tori’s chair exploded against the conference room wall as she flew out of it and planted her palms on the table. “Oh, hell no.”
Michelle Grey is an avid lover of books, and had always thought that someday she would take up her pen and write romantic suspense. In 2009, Michelle was diagnosed with a rare form of ovarian cancer, and she realized that “somedays” aren’t guaranteed. This life changing event motivated Michelle to pursue her dream of becoming an author.
In January of 2013, Michelle released her debut novel, Dangerous Ally.
In September of 2013, the next book in her Long Shot Series, Unspoken Bonds, was published.
Now a cancer survivor, Michelle decided to use her platform to promote awareness of ovarian cancer and its symptoms. In January 2014 she published, Are You Listening: A Personal Journal of an Ovarian Cancer Survivor.
Because it is so important to spread the word, one hundred percent of the proceeds from this $.99 ebook go directly to the Vicki Welsh Ovarian Cancer Fund to support their mission of fighting ovarian cancer through awareness, education, research and support.
Michelle lives in the Midwestern US with her husband of twenty-eight years and has four amazing and unique children, a wonderful son-in-law, and two beautiful granddaughters. Michelle believes that any day that involves family, writing, or reading is a great day, indeed.
Where are you from?
Tell us a little about yourself! My name is Michelle Grey, and I write contemporary romantic suspense. I’m from the Kansas City area. I’ve been married for almost 29 years to the love of my life and I have four kids. My last one is entering his senior year of high school, so the empty nest is on the horizon!
Tell us about your book?
How did it get started? I’m a huge weather fan and, since I live in the Midwest, Tornadoes and storms are always a fascination for me. The idea for Tori (my heroine in Convergence) came from watching a tornado chase show with meteorologist Reed Timmer. I was watching, and all of the sudden, I had Tori’s entire backstory floating around in my head.
How do you create your characters?
I generally start with a concept. With Convergence, it was a meteorologist/storm chaser and an FBI agent. Then, as the characters’ current lives and situations come into focus, I work backwards to find out exactly what happened to them to bring them to the place they are.
What inspires and what got your started in writing?
Writing had always been on my list of things to do “someday”, but I realized that at some point, I was going to run out of “somedays”, and I didn’t want to look back with regret and wish I would have tried.
Where do you write?
I enjoy writing in my Paris-themed home office. Visiting Paris is another thing on my “someday” list, and I’m working on getting there. But I’ve also been known to write in the car, at Starbucks or Panera, or just about anywhere I have time.
What do you like to read?
I enjoy most romance genres, especially romantic suspense (of course) and historicals. But I also enjoy general fiction and biographies.
What would your advice to be for authors or aspiring in regards to writing?
First and foremost – start writing. Once you get a general idea for a story, and have something on paper, get involved with a good, local (or online) writers group. I can’t overstate the importance of blending brains with other authors. It’s good for the soul.
Anything else you’d like to share?
I never pass up the opportunity to promote ovarian cancer awareness. I was fortunate to have my cancer diagnosed in the very earliest of stages, but this disease is called the silent killer because early symptoms are generally so mild, they’re ignored or rationalized. Please read my short ebook called Are You Listening: A Personal Journal of an Ovarian Cancer Survivor. It’s $.99 on Amazon and ALL proceeds go to www.vickiwelshfund.org to promote awareness. You could save a life!
