Contest and Q&A with Caridad Pineiro! [Closed!]

Welcome to 
Rex Robot Reviews, Caridad!

Can you tell us a little bit about the inspiration behind your sizzling Sin Hunters series?
Although I've done a number of vampire novels and some shapeshifters, I wanted to give paranormal readers a different take from what they've been seeing, namely humans who have developed incredible and sometimes scary traits. Another thing that inspired me was that in some paranormal novels it was the humans that were scarier than the monsters so I decided to also take that to the next step. That inspired the first two books in the SINS series, SINS OF THE FLESH and STRONGER THAN SIN, where we see everyday people fighting against monstrous scientists and black ops teams who have decided to make other people super-human. As the series expands to add the Hunters in August 2011, it'll get even scarier as a race of people who can manipulate all different kinds of energy descend on the Jersey Shore and present new dangers and powers to the humans in the area, including the youngest sister of the Carrera clan (You'll see a little bit of her in STRONGER THAN SIN).

Liliana and Jesse have explosive chemistry! Do you have a process that helps you create such compatible characters?
I so loved Liliana and Jesse and how they turned out! I actually start the process by creating characters who would seem to be totally incompatible at first, but end up having a lot in common. For example, when we first meet Jesse Bradford, we learn he has been a womanizer and no connections to his family. That is the total opposite of the monogamous and family-oriented Liliana Carrera. In time, though, and as we learn more about each of them, it turns out that there are a lot of things they can share.

So, what comes after Stronger than Sin? Excited about any other releases or works in progress?
After Stronger than Sin we have the expansion of the series to become the SIN HUNTER Series starting in August 2011 with THE LOST. I am just finishing that book and I think you all will love it. The hero, Adam Bruno, is a man who knows little of his past and has incredible otherworldly powers. Fate will bring him together with Bobbie Carrera, an Iraqi veteran who has come home wounded and is trying to rebuild her life. Meeting Adam, however, will challenge her wishes for a peaceful life as she is drawn into a power struggle occurring in the Hunters, a race of people with unique abilities. The second book in the series, THE CLAIMED, will be available in Spring 2012.
