Catnapped
R.J. Blain
(Magical Romantic Comedies, #14)
Publication date: May 11th 2021
Genres: Adult, Comedy, Urban Fantasy

When someone steals Diana’s cat, a former lab animal rescued from death’s door, she calls on one of the most dangerous beings in the universe for help. Cutting a deal with the devil isn’t the smartest move, but there’s no way in hell she’ll abandon Mr. Flooferson the Magnificent to his fate.

Teaming up with the son of a demon, an angel, and one hell of a woman might push Diana to the limits of her courage and sanity. Unless she wants to sell her soul to the devil, she must cope with her new partner, make the most of a bad situation, and find out who stole her cat and why.

What she learns will forever change humanity–and lead to a battle destined to forever change the heavens and the devil’s many hells.

Author Interview

1.      What would you consider to be your Kryptonite as an author?
 (Sobbing in a corner.) The proofreading process. Perfection is required, and I am an imperfect human. But I try to be perfect, because people want a great reading experience. Add in my anxiety, and the proofing process is all sorts of ‘fun’.

 

2.    If you could tell your younger writing self anything, what would it be?
Honestly, I wouldn’t tell her anything. She had to learn the hard way, and without things having gone as they had, I wouldn’t be right here right now. There’s something to be said for learning from the school of hard knocks. I wouldn’t change anything on the reading/writing front, though.

 I don’t think I would have gotten to where I’m at now if things had been easier.

 

3.    Favorite childhood memory involving books?
Honestly, I didn’t know how to really read until 4th grade. My favorite memory is definitely when I realized reading could be fun and I wanted to do it more.

 Discovering books had a special sort of magic is my favorite memory.

 

4.    If you could dine with any literary character, who would it be and why?
I’d probably want to have tea with Jane Yellowrock from Faith Hunter’s Yellowrock series. Jane is just so interesting. And we both like tea.

 

5.     What fantastical fictional world would you want to live in (if any) given the chance?
I’ll take the Magical Romantic Comedy (with a body count) world because of the pixie dust. Some pixie dust on some hot chocolate and a corner with a good book would be my heaven. Just let me pass on the action and adventure.

 

6.    Did you want to be an author when you grew up?
Nope. I wanted to be, in no particular order: vet, president, astronaut, bio-medical engineer. I even went to college (for half a semester) for bio-medical engineering before I did the math and realized I’d be spending $120,000 per four years of education, needed eight years of education, and the starting per hour was around forty for women in the field… the math did not add up. Then I met my husband, and the math plus husband = I bailed out.

 It proved to be one of the best choices I’ve made in my life, truth be told.

 

7.     If you had to describe yourself in three words, what would they be?
Crazy cat lady.

 I really like cats. (And unicorns and horses. But I love cats.)

 

8.    What is your most unusual writing quirk?
I have to be beat by my editors to use the ellipse. Drama dots make me twitch. If I’m using drama dots, I spent twenty minutes debating if I REALLY needed the drama dots in my novel. But I use them casually often. As I don’t want to be beat, I do try to use them appropriately. But they make me twitch.

 

9.    What’s one movie you like recommending to others?
JURASSIC PARK!!!!

 RAWWWRRR. (Or, as science now indicates, HONK.) I love the t-rex and the Utah raptors. (And I also love the actual velociraptors… knee-high death chickens!)

 

10.  If you could own any animal as a pet, what would it be?
Every horse ever. I would have ALL of the horses. And unicorns. And I refuse to believe unicorns aren’t real. (sticks fingers in ears) Unicorns ARE real.

 

11.  Have you ever met anyone famous?
The entire cast of Star Trek (Original and Next Generation) because my mother is a Trekkie. I’ve also met a bunch of authors because I have an obsessive compulsive reading disorder.
