Bio:

Pembroke
Sinclair is a literary jack of all trades, playing her hand at multiple genres.
She has written an eclectic mix of fiction ranging from horror to sci-fi and
even some westerns. Born in Rock Springs, Wyoming–the home of 56
nationalities–it is no wonder Pembroke ended up so creatively diverse. Her
fascination with the notions of good and evil, demons and angels, and how the
lines blur have inspired her writing. Pembroke lives in Laramie, Wyoming, with
her husband, two spirited boys, a black lab named Ryder, and a rescue kitty
named Alia, who happens to be the sweetest, most adorable kitty in the world!
She cannot say no to dessert, orange soda, or cinnamon. She loves rats and
tatts and rock and roll and wants to be an alien queen when she grows up. You

Welcome, Pembroke. Please tell us about
your current release.

Dealing with Devils is the second book
in The Road to Salvation series. The Appeal of Evil is the first. Here’s what Dealing with Devils is about:
Dating
a demon has its advantages, like helping deliver souls to Hell. Wait…what?
Katie’s
world has been turned upside down. She’s fallen for Josh—despite the fact that
he’s a demon from Hell. Wes is finally out of her system and her life.
Convinced she can change Josh, she sets out to make him a better person, only
to find out things aren’t as simple as she’d originally thought. For one thing,
Josh has Katie help him deliver souls to Hell, and she kind of likes it. And to
top it off, other more powerful demons are battling for her soul, and
revelations from the past could change the course of her life forever.

What inspired you to write this book?

I
was thinking about women and how it’s accepted/expected for them to date the
“bad boy,” and I started wondering, “What if they were really bad? Like demon
from Hell bad?” And I used to book to explore that answer to that question.

Excerpt from Dealing with Devils:
A red light shone in front of them,
growing in intensity as they approached. It was reminiscent of the last time
she was in Hell, and she expected to see the edge of a cliff that overlooked a
red lake. Instead, they stepped into a massive cavern. In the middle was a pit
that sucked every last ounce of light from the immediate area. Katie imagined
that was probably what a black hole looked like. Demons of every shape and size
milled around the wide space. Wings flapped above her, and her gazed drifted
upward, but she couldn’t see the demons, only their glowing white and red eyes.
Was it because of the darkness or was the cave so massive? She didn’t know. Her
gaze drifted back down. Katie instantly noticed large, black, winged creatures
and heard the distinct buzz of Tormentors. She tensed, wondering where they
were and thankful the sound wasn’t close to her ear. Hell Hounds zipped through
the crowd, and white demons with fire-red eyes towered above them all. They
looked almost like bats without wings. Their skin had a leathery sheen, their
eyes were beady. Fangs protruded from their lips. Her heart skipped as she
looked at them. Dread tried to push through the other feelings, but it
couldn’t. Despite the heat, a chill ran through her. But so did fascination.
The demons were unlike anything she had seen before, and they were so thin and
frail looking, Katie was amazed they were upright at all. She thought a gentle
breeze would snap them in two.

What exciting story are you working on
next?

I
recently finished Good Intentions,
which is the third book in The Road to Salvation series.

When did you first consider yourself a
writer?

Some
days I still don’t. But since I get paid to do it at my day job, I suppose I’m
more of a writer than I’m not.

Do you write full-time? If so, what’s
your work day like? If not, what do you do other than write and how do you find
time to write?

I
don’t write fiction full-time, but I write for a university foundation for a
living. I try to find time to write for fun when my boys are at wrestling
practice/tournaments or on the weekends.

What would you say is your interesting
writing quirk?

For
Good Intentions, I handwrote the
entire manuscript in a notebook before transferring it to the computer.

As a child, what did you want to be when
you grew up?

I
don’t remember, but my mom likes to tell me that I wanted to grow up to be
Barbie.

Anything additional you want to share
with the readers?

Thank
you so much for having me on your blog! I hope you enjoy The Road to Salvations
series!

    Mai T, not normally. I think the longest I let them sit is about 1 week. And that's usually because I just want to get it done and off to the editor!

    Just got my check for over $500.

    Many times people don't believe me when I tell them about how much money you can get by taking paid surveys at home…

    So I show them a video of myself getting paid $500 for doing paid surveys to set the record straight once and for all.
