P.I. Barrington's "Miraculous Deception"


We're happy to have P. I. Barrington with us today talking about her book, Miraculous Deception. To learn more about P.I. and her book, read on!

1) How did this story come to you?
It’s the continuation from Book One, Crucifying Angel. I had one idea for the story yet when I began actually writing it, a whole other plot just fell into place. Luckily, I was able to stick the original idea in the compact form of a few interspersed scenes to tie it all together. I like this book even better than the first; more intrigue, more betrayal, more surprises. I hope the readers think so as well.

2) Tell us about the journey to getting this book published.
It’s not that I didn’t get involved in the first book, I did. I was in love with Gavin but this was a true “trust the process” situation; sometimes I think that I secretly know what’s going to happen in next book—I kind of decide on who’s staying, who’s going and whatever cliffhanger works best. This was a real labor of love for me because I got to develop lesser characters from the first book and I got to love them too. They come up with some funny if not endearing quirks and attitudes.

3) Tell me three things about yourself that would surprise your readers.
A.) I’m a terrible dancer; I dance like Elaine from Seinfeld.
B.) I’m artsy but not crafty. In fact I’m a rabid anti-craftite!
C.) A smart and funny guy is more likely to win my heart; especially if he can best me with one-liners as well as stand up to me and have a stronger personality than mine. I like a challenge!

4) What are you working on now and what's next for you?
Believe it or not, I’ve actually begun writing Book Three of the Future Imperfect series and I’ve mentioned a real surprise ending with Gail (Gail R. Delaney, Editor in Chief, Desert Breeze Publishing) that I really want to use and I think she likes it too! Also, I have a sci-fi novella in the works for a DBP anthology as well and a book I co-authored with my sister, Loni Emmert is out in August. I do have a couple of other things under wraps right now. I’m horribly superstitious and don’t talk about things before they happen.

5) Parting comments?
I hope everyone who enjoyed Crucifying Angel will like Miraculous Deception even more! As I said it was a labor of love for me.

6) Where can fans find you on the internet?
I finally have a real website that fans can visit (and we also now feature author interviews and the occasional music review—hear that authors?) for information on books, events, etc. They can go to: http://thewordmistresses.com/ and/or email us at wordmistresses@yahoo.com.

  3. You didn't really say what the book is about, but "intrigue, betrayal, surprises" certainly piques my interest.
