Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?
?* I am a Southern girl who fell in love with a Yankee. He’s my heart and soul. I am the mother to four boys, ages 19 through 3, and they keep me busy! In my spare time, I like to read, watch Netflix and chill with my family. I love music and always write to a soundtrack. My celebrity crush is Tom Hardy but I also love Jason Momoa and my fictional boyfriend is Dean Winchester from Supernatural.
In your own words, tell us a little bit about your book?
?* Primitive Fix and Primitive Need are both set in Louisiana and are about a family of shapeshifters who are trying to survive in a world that doesn’t know they exist. Primitive Need is about brothers Nik and Kenyon and the women they love. Primitive Need is about Logan, a former Blackhawk pilot, whose plane crash years ago gave him an enhanced ability. Penalty Kill is about a coach of an NHL team who meets up with a former flame. It’s highly erotic and was a lot of fun to write.
Can you tell us about the characters in your book? Who is your favorite?
I really like Kenyon from Primitive Fix because he’s darker and edgier than the other characters. I like guys who have a darker side to them and who are very alpha. That’s Kenyon. Plus he looks like Jason Momoa from Game of Thrones. You can’t go wrong with that.
What makes your book different from other books out there in the same genre?
I think the fact that I incorporate local legends and folklore along with history and my imagination help set my books apart from others in the genre. If you love Louisiana or want to know more about it, read my books.
Is Writing your full time profession?
?* Sadly, no. I taught college English for 12 years, high school English for 2 and now I’m teaching high school Spanish. Ole!
Do you have any quirks or processes that you go through when you write?
?* I used to write by the seat of my pants but now I work from a dedicated outline. My one quirk is I always write to a soundtrack and I sometimes listen to the same song over and over when I am working on a scene. It drives my family crazy!
Who are some of your favorite authors?
?* I love JR Ward’s Black Daggars (V is my man) and I am a huge fan of Cara McKenna. Her short story “Willing Victim” from Ellora’s Cave is one of the best stories I have ever read. I still cry every time when I finish it. My favorite authors when I was younger were Beatrice Small and Sandra Hill. Of course being a Southern girl, I cut my teeth on Gone with the Wind.
What are you reading now?
?* Right now, I’m reading other writers from Beau Coup Publishing. Ryan O’Leary, Sable Hunter, Isobelle Cate, and I’m also reading new author Ginger Ring.
What advice can you give to struggling writers?
?* Don’t ever give up, don’t ever stop writing and read in your genre. If you keep reading and keep writing, you will eventually get there. Also, don’t listen to the rules of the industry but do pay attention to the rules of grammar! They are not likely to change.

The next book from Alicia Sparks…
Continuing the Primitive series with book 2
Ten years ago, Logan’s life changed when the Blackhawk helicopter he was flying went down over Afghanistan. The pain immediately hit him, intensifying and running down his arm, and when he woke up, he realized he’d become part of a military experiment complete with robotic arm and superhuman strength. After leaving the military, he returned to his hometown of Bon Teche, Louisiana to live a quiet life as the town’s sheriff, but the mayor has other plans for him.
Mayor O’Connor’s only daughter, Hadley, is blessed with powers she can’t understand or control, and the old man fear for her life and his sanity. When he hires Logan to be her personal bodyguard, no one expects immediate sparks to fly between the two. Headstrong and spoiled, Hadley does not like being followed around by someone who watches her every move, and what she hates even more is the fact she can’t trust herself around Logan or the way he makes her feel.
Logan knows he can’t live without her, but convincing Hadley of that is next to impossible. With danger swirling all around them, Logan makes his feelings known, but Hadley has a secret which could destroy them both. As her secrets are revealed, she and Logan become entangled with the Maddux clan, a group of shape shifting tigers who want Hadley for their own purposes.
Deep in the Atchafalaya Basin, Logan is determined to protect Hadley and to satisfy her Primitive Need.
