Interview with Mary E. Twomey, Author of Savage Hearts
17 Nov 2020
What can you tell us about your new release, Savage Hearts?
This is a five-part series, which is based entirely in Hispanic folklore. All the monsters, themes and magical twists can be found in Latino lore. All the characters are Latino, as well. When I looked at the top 100 books in paranormal romance on amazon, there were zero Latina women on the covers. My goal is to get more diverse offering for readers, so everyone feels seen and is included in the genre I love so much.
What books are currently on your nightstand?
Right now, I’ve got my kindle on my nightstand, which contains a billion books to be read. Mostly nonfiction, but also some romance and paranormal romance.
What advice would you give your teenage self?
Listen first. Listen second. Act third.
If you had an extra hour each day, how would you spend it?
Ideally, I would be sleeping. But I would probably work instead.
What makes your world go round? Why does it bring you joy?
My kids are great fun. I also enjoy cooking. I’ve been into making flatbread lately.
What scene from Savage Hearts was your favorite to write?
I loved any time Cruz and Santos are sweet to each other, which happens often. They have a unique brotherhood. It was nice to have several scenes laced with manly sweetness.
