Interview: Paranormal Romance Author Beverly Ovalle + giveaway

Can you, for those who don't know you already, tell something about yourself and how you became an author?
I’ve been writing my whole life. I didn’t realize that, but my mom gave me some truly awful poetry I’d written when I was in grade school. LOL. I’d written and been in the Creative Writing Club in high school and never really stopped. Usually, I’d toss whatever I wrote out so there is no evidence. I thought! Then my BFF challenged me to enter a writing contest. I actually had a completed story, so I thought, why not? Neither of us won the contest, but the publisher, Boroughs Publishing Group, wanted our stories and we got contracts. I still have two books with them, Dragons’ Mate and Touched by the Sandman.

What is something unique/quirky about you?
I’m a serial hobbyist. I don’t ever drop them unless it’s a painful hobby (glass blowing) but I usually do one at a time.

What are some of your pet peeves?
My worst one, is having someone talk to me on the phone and chewing. Bubble gum or food. I have been known to hang up without warning as everyone in the family knows this.

Where were you born/grew up at?
I was born in Oak Park IL. I grew up moving around. We lived in Illinois, Indiana and Florida growing up. Once I was an adult. I lived in California and Wisconsin.

If you knew you'd die tomorrow, how would you spend your last day?
I would spend it with my family. Do a quick cruise to Illinois to see my parents, brother, SIL and niece and nephew. Dragging my husband of course. Then I’d finish the rest of the day with my children and granddaughter. I would want them to know I loved them (they do know!) and not to grieve. I’ve had a good life.

What kind of world ruler would you be?
I’d be the worst kind of despot. My way or off with your head! People annoy me.

What are you passionate about these days?
Prepping and preserving food. I love to can and dehydrate food.

What do you do to unwind and relax?
I love to cook, unfortunately that means I have to clean also and am not fond of that part. I love to travel in my RV. Sew, and play board games. My kids and I get together every few weeks and play games all evening.

When did you first consider yourself a writer?
I’ve always been a writer, but considered myself an author when my first book was published. Then I bragged, lol.

Do you have a favorite movie?
The Day After Tomorrow.

Which of your novels can you imagine made into a movie?
I’d love to see Stealing Hope made into a movie, but I always say it would probably end up in a sticky floored theater!

As a writer, what would you choose as your mascot/avatar/spirit animal?
A dragon, could be a book worm too!

The apocalypse has been and gone.

May 4, 2024
Genre: Paranormal Romance
The apocalypse has been and gone.

Generations have passed.

The old world wakes up to a future they never imagined.
Indra answers a mating call and is plunged into his future. He’s drawn to a beauty frozen in the
past. He wants more than a kiss when he wakes her. But he has to have patience.

Gazing into Indra’s eyes, Mara is instantly smitten. One surprise after another has her believing
in fairy tales. But there are no princes in her story, only dragons.

Believing in dragons isn’t the hard part. Even becoming a dragon brings her more pleasure than
she’d ever dreamed. But being told she’s becoming a parent without her consent.


Indra has some groveling to do.

About the Author
Beverly Ovalle dabbled with writing on and off for years when her best friend finally dared her to submit a story to a writing contest. Beverly decided she had nothing to lose and since she'd always wanted to be an author sent it in and agonized for months waiting to hear back. Contract in hand she has never looked back.

Beverly Ovalle has been obsessed with dragons and romance since she was a young girl, collecting dragon books and reading everything she could find on them even down to the care of real-life dragons. She's always been slightly panicked that the world as we know it will end, so has prepped for it, haunting survivalist pages and prepper projects she felt she needed in the event SHTF (shit hit the fan).

An avid fan of all romance, Beverly's goal is to share her love of the written word and write the spicy romances that she enjoys. She writes what she loves to read and it was only a matter of time before her obsessions crept into her writing for her to share. She hopes you enjoy her tales as much as she loves writing them.

A United States Navy Veteran, Beverly has traveled around the world and the United States enabling her to bring her settings to life. Reading romances since the fourth grade she's followed as the genre changed and spread into the vast cornucopia of romance offered today.
