INTERVIEW: Elizabeth Noble and #Giveaway!

Today we are talking to the fantastic Elizabeth Noble who comes to us wearing her hunter/jumper show hat (like a jockey would wear!) *^__^* Please say hello and don't forget to check out her giveaway!

Hello Elizabeth and welcome to The Hat Party! <3 Thank you so much for subjecting yourself to the RANDOMNESS that is a Raine O'Tierney interview! Please don your best hat, and let's get started!

Thank you, Raine!

What is your wildest, most extravagant writing dream?

To have something I’ve written make it to the big screen, or even the little TV screen.

Do you know any cool party tricks and are you brave enough to do them at parties?

I don’t think I know any cool party tricks unless you count making it past midnight….lol

If you could go back and speak to your 13-year-old self, what would you say?

Take more chances and don’t ever let anyone say I can’t do something.

A genre-specific virus has attacked you, rendering you INCAPABLE of writing your chosen genre. What do you do now?!

Find another one to write in! And find a cure.

Describe yourself using song lyrics.

I just suck at these types of questions. While I like music and listen often I don’t think I know enough about various songs and lyrics to give an even semi-intelligent answer.

How long will you survive the zombie apocalypse?

Until all the zombies are gone.

You have 200 words—Make. Me. Swoon. (PLEASE!)

I’ll let Val and Wyatt from Run for the Roses do that, they’re swoon worthy.

They left the restaurant and walked to Wyatt’s car.

Stepping around Val, Wyatt went to the passenger side and unlocked the car door. Val saw Wyatt glance around the parking lot. No one else was around. When Wyatt reached out and slipped one hand hrough Val’s hair and pulled him gently closer, Val tensed despite his brain screaming at him not to.

“Shush. I’m not going to hurt you.” Wyatt tenderly brushed his fingers through Val’s hair. “Though, I’ll be honest, I have hurt people. But they were bad people stealing valuable national treasures and wouldn’t give them back.”

Val burst out laughing, and the tension left him. Wyatt smiled in that way that made the corners of his eyes crinkle. When Wyatt leaned in toward Val again, he inched forward.

Wyatt’s kiss was light and gentle. He didn’t push, but seemed to wait patiently and coax Val into opening his lips. It was the hottest thing Val ever could imagine, and he moaned, rocking his hips into Wyatt as Wyatt’s tongue slipped over Val’s and skimmed the roof of his mouth.

Val slid his arm around Wyatt’s back. At the same time Wyatt wound his free arm around Val’s waist, pulled closer, and pressed his thigh between Val’s legs, applying steady pressure upward. It was delightful and maddening at the same time. No one had ever affected him in this way or so completely. Val wanted more.

Wyatt ran a hand softly up Val’s spine, making him shiver, then moved his hand to Val’s shoulder. He pushed back from Val barely enough to break their kiss and caressed Val’s cheek with his own before saying in a low voice, “I thought I’d burst before I had the chance to kiss you.” Wyatt’s breath was warm against Val’s skin, making him quiver and his breath catch in his throat. Reaching around Val, Wyatt pulled on the car door latch. He nudged Val to the side and opened the door completely, then waved
grandly at the inside. “Shall we?”

What is your most irrational fear and what makes you inexplicably happy?

Spiders. When you think about it, it’s a silly thing to be afraid of. My dog makes me very happy, writing and spending time with my family.

Best advice for new writers in no more than 5 words.

Never, ever give up. EVER.

And finally, for THE most important question of all: what kinds of dachshunds are the BEST kinds of dachshunds?

Why the ugliest dachshunds of course! The Great Dane (I’ve had two).

Wanting to end his pattern of choosing controlling and abusive men, Vladimir ‘Val’ Mihalic figures it’s better to live alone than live in fear. Just when things are settling down—his biggest trouble recently is a Kentucky Derby hopeful that won’t load into a starting gate—his best friend Janelle’s violent ex-boyfriend kidnaps her. After she’s seriously injured in a car wreck, Wyatt Harig, Janelle’s estranged father, comes around to tend to his daughter. Despite Val’s determination to avoid relationships, Wyatt interests him in ways that make his resolve waver. As complications and repercussions pile on in the aftermath of Janelle’s kidnapping—including a gambling charge and a murder—Wyatt and Val must work together to seek answers. And the closer they get to each other, the more Val wants them to stay that way.

About the Author:

Elizabeth Noble started telling stories before she actually knew how to write, and her family was very happy when she learned to put words on a page. Those words turned into fan fiction that turned into a genuine love of M/M romance fiction. Being able to share her works with Dreamspinner is really a dream come true. She has a real love for all things sci-fi, futuristic, and supernatural and a bit of an unnatural interest in a super-volcano in Wyoming.

Elizabeth has three grown children and is now happily owned by an adorable mixed breed canine princess named Rosie, and two cats, Murphy and Yeti. She lives in her native northeast Ohio, the perfect place for gardening, winter and summer sports (go Tribe!). When she's not writing she's working as a veterinary nurse, so don't be surprised to see her men with a pet or three who are a very big part of their lives.
