Interview with Deena Remiel
When not writing, what hobbies do you enjoy?
I love photography. I get so into capturing a moment or a feeling. Even when its an object, it can convey emotion.

What is the strangest real life situation that is in one of your stories?
I've met Satan. NO! NO! NO! I'm lyin'! Actually a real life moment for me is the paralyzing fear Emma felt when locked in the pitch black mausoleum. I've never been locked in one, but I have been home alone when the lights went out due to a storm. Just thinking about it again make my heart race!

Have you traveled to do research for your books?
I've gone to Sedona, AZ and Las Vegas, NV for Relic and Elixxir. Of course, a couple places are fictitious, however, based on real places, and the sights, the sounds, are real.

Do you enjoy reading your own stories?
I hope I'm not alone in answering that question with a resounding, Yes! I love my stories, and some specific scenes still linger in my thoughts as I go to bed each night. And you'd be correct if you guessed it was particular love scenes!

Do you laugh and cry while writing your books?
I haven't cried, although my heart has ached terribly at those certain black moments that kill me. I do laugh a lot. It's more like a wicked kind of laughter because my villains usually have wicked lines. But I also laugh at the playful dialogue between my lead characters. They are a hoot!

Favorite book or character you have written?
My favorite to date, although PLEASE, don't tell the others, is ELIXXIR with Nathanael and Callie. I LOVE THIS STORY! I LOVE THESE CHARACTERS! These tortured souls find their way to each other and to a lifetime of healing and loving, but not before some serious sh*t goes down!

Do you read the same types of books you write?
I do! When I'm writing, though, I love reading historical romance. This way I'm not influenced by other PNR authors' works.

What is your go-to snack?

I always must have some kind of chocolate like M&M Peanut, or Snickers around. And I like having pretzels or Goldfish Cheddar around, too.

Book 1: Trinity -Michael D'Angelo's story
 One way or another, terror will reign tonight.
School teacher and single mom, Emma Livingston, has been through hell—and back so she thinks. While dealing with the night terrors and active imagination of her five-year old daughter, Hannah, she attempts to lead a normal life. That is, until the demon from those nightmares pays her a visit, too, and threatens both of their lives. Desperate, she reaches out for help—and finds Michael waiting.

Michael D’Angelo is known to everyone in Prophet’s Point, Arizona, as their loving elementary school principal. But to The Brethren, he is the most powerful Protector. Immortal and angelic does not mean he’s without doubts or fears, as protecting Emma and Hannah from Evil tests his ability to fight his tortured past.

As the Trinity is formed, ancient secrets are revealed and faith is tested. When a prophecy is exposed, Hannah becomes the main target and Emma wonders if a normal life will ever be possible again. Hope is like an anchor, but can a mother, her daughter, and an angel overcome the evil determined to annihilate the world?
Book 2: Relic - Raphael's story
 Raphael, a Brethren Savior, an angel with a forgotten past, has lost his power to heal and is on a self-imposed guilt trip to get it back. If he can’t, his tour of eternal duty as Brethren Savior will be revoked. On his journey, he winds up enmeshed in a web of attempted murder and resurrection, all thanks to a woman he’s only seen in a photograph and by chance on an Arizona desert hiking trail.

Serena Sikes is a wanted woman. Desired by “undesirables” for a gift her brother gave her—a stolen relic with suspected healing powers. Hunted down in the Arizona desert and left for dead, she is found by none other than the angel who cannot heal.

Raphael and Serena are inexorably bound together, for locked deep within the relic’s heart had lived the soul of his long lost wife. Now, it resides inside Serena. Evil lurks around every corner as Raphael tries to keep both Serena and his dead wife’s soul alive and lustful temptation at bay.

Three souls bound together by an ancient relic, bound by a timeless gift, and bound by a love that is eternal.
Book 3: Elixxir - Nathanael's story
Callie has secrets, too many to count. For twenty years she’s been living a lie as Callie Worthington, hiding from the monsters who brutally murdered her parents for possession of the Elixxir of Life. Unsuccessful before, their killers have found her and will stop at nothing to acquire the Elixxir. And see her dead.

 Nathanael has a couple of secrets, too. A nasty one in particular blurs the line separating Good from Evil. As an immortal Brethren Warrior, though, he must retrieve the Elixxir before it falls into the wrong hands. Just how he’s going to get it out of Callie’s is the big question. Tempers flare as Callie and Nathanael reach out to each other with their own hidden agendas. She needs his protection. He needs the Elixxir. Will their fiery passion lead to lasting love, or will their web of intrigue ultimately destroy them both?

 Secrets, lies, and love’s loyalties tested. What price for immortality? What price for love.
