About the author(s)
1. Some people might not realize this, but Sable Grace is actually two authors. Tell us how you came to be 'one person'. We've been friends and critique partners for years and found by accident that our voices blended rather well together during a writing experiment. From there, we just decided to play and luckily, our agent liked the voice and so did Avon.

2. And where did the name, Sable Grace, come from? Sable was a no-brainer. It was the first heroine I (Heather) ever wrote and I've been in love with that name ever since. Because Laura and I are so different, opposites really, we tried to think of what might be the opposite of Sable. Grace sounded nice and light and good in comparison and we liked the ring of the two names together.

3. Do you think it's more or less difficult to create a book together than it is for one author? Both. Some aspects are easier. . .like filling a blank page. But the details like names, plot, ideas, schedules, work ethics -- that's where it becomes difficult. We have to be cohesive, which isn't always easy.

About the books
4. Your Dark Breed series has a lot of the paranormal creatures we know and love. How would you describe the world you created for the series? I suppose it's easiest to say simply that Hell opened it's mouth and vomited a lot of dark and scaries into our world. Some of them have been around, in secret, forever, but others are seeing their first glimpses of earth in centuries. It's a tiered world. Starting with the ancient gods and ending with scum like zombies and ghouls. There's a place for everyone, but sadly, humans fell off the top rung of the food chain and didn't see it coming.

5. Describe Kyana, the heroine from the Dark Breed series, in ten words or less.
Loyal, kick ass, smart mouthed, cut throat, and pissed off.

Fast Five
Favorite guilty pleasure: Heather - gummy anything. I don't have much of a sweet tooth but those are hard to resist. Laura: soaking in my hot tub.

Favorite book or series: Heather - Harry Potter. Forever. Laura: The Stand by Stephen King

Other author you'd most like to meet: Heather - I would say Julie Garwood but since I had the pleasure of meeting her, it has to be J.K. Rowling. Laura: Stephen King

Junk food that you succumb to the most: Heather - Pringles. Original flavor. Laura: Salt and Vinegar potato chips

Favorite food to cook: Heather - Anything! I don't bake much, but I love to cook. It's a passion. Laura: Chicken. Any way you want it.

Thank you so much to Heather and Laura, a.k.a. Sable Grace, for being here today! Now to give something away!
