Look Who’s Going to RT: Mia Marlowe

Can you introduce yourself to my readers?

First, thanks for having me, Angela.

I’m Mia Marlowe and I write historical romance with a sparkle of paranormal for Kensington and Sourcebooks. I don’t have vampires or were-anything’s, but in my stories there’s at least one character who has a gift that’s beyond the ordinary. Of course, with all magical things, there needs to be a balance, so the gift is often double-edged and more hindrance than help.

Can you introduce us to the world that you have created?

For Kensington, I’ve created the Touch of Seduction series–a trio of Victorian-set stories beginning with TOUCH OF A THIEF (May 2011). My heroine has an affinity for gem stones and receives visions when she touches them with her bare hands. This is something of an occupational hazard since she’s a jewel thief. She fully intends to give up her secret life of larceny until the hero catches her at what she thought was her last heist. He insists that she help him recover a magnificent red diamond and return it to its rightful place. He never counted on the Mayfair Jewel Thief being a woman who could steal his heart as well!

TOUCH OF A THIEF will be followed by TOUCH OF A ROGUE (Feb. 2012) and TOUCH OF A SCOUNDREL (July 2012). In addition, I’ll be joining Diane Whiteside and Maggie Robinson in an anthology called IMPROPER GENTLEMEN in August 2011.

For Sourcebooks, I’m teaming up with New York Times Bestseller Connie Mason to bring you 2 sexy, adventurous romances. Since Connie’s reader expect her to take them all over the globe, we started with a story in 16th century Scotland and then created the quintessential alpha–a Viking hero. Look for SINS OF THE HIGHLANDER in January 2012 and LORD OF FIRE AND ICE in August 2012. Working with a romance legend like Connie Mason has been a phenomenal experience.

Please visit my website to learn more.

Will this be your first RT or are you a veteran?  Any advice for those who are going for the first time?

I’ve been attending RT since 2006. It’s a wonderful week of catching up with other writers and readers. My advice is to wear comfortable shoes, stay hydrated and have fun!

Are you speaking on any panels during RT?  Are there any you are looking forward to?  What panels are you planning on attending?

I’m actually showing up early for RT to help Bobbi Smith and Judy McCoy with their Aspiring Writers program. It’s two intensive days of workshops and hands-on help for beginners. I love working with newbie’s. I’ve done it since 2007 and it’s my favorite part of RT.

I won’t be speaking on any panels, but I am part of the Saucy Sirens of History evening on Wednesday. Look for me disguised as a movie maven from the past.

If someone were wanting to meet up with you at RT, who should they look for?

I hope to be hanging out in Club RT and of course at the book fair on Saturday. If Kensington or Sourcebooks has a panel or function, I’ll be there and I’d love to meet YOU!

Oh, and if you see a wild woman on the dance floor some night, that might just be me.

    Thanks, Ashlyn. There’s a bit in the acknowledgment page with your name on it! ;-)

    Thanks, Linda. I’m glad you’re my FB friend! Historical and paranormal are like chocolate and peanut butter, IMO. They really go well together. I’m happy to report that Publishers Weekly thinks so too. In the starred review they gave Touch of a Thief, they said “both historical and paranormal readers will love this cross over tale!”

    Not only do I enjoy Mia’s writing (including her backlist as Diana Groe and Emily Bryan), but I know what a good teacher she is. For any aspiring writers going to RT, my advice would be not to miss her workshops … you’ll learn lots, and your writing WILL improve. Have fun at RT, Mia!

    Thanks for that, Marcy. I do enjoy teaching, mostly because I’ve been helped along the way by other romance authors who were generous enough to share what they’ve learned about writing. Guess this is my way of giving back.
