In a history very different from our own, the Civil War rages on in Texas. Zeppelins fill the air, steam power vehicles battle horses for space on the roads and bodies lay strewn through the wreckage of the Sisters of the Merciful Truth Convent, innocent victims of a local turf war. Three sisters, raised in the convent, emerge from the horror to find their lives of family and devotion over, and their separate lives of crime about to begin.

In lawless times, where faith and love battle doubt and hate, Justice now sees the world from behind the barrel of a gun. She falls in with a handsome and mysterious miscreant as she attempts to carve a place in the ruined world and search for her lost sisters. But when her life of crime catches up to her, Justice will learn the meaning of true love, and family ties.

Let's get to know, Ashlynn...

1.) What's your favorite genre to read and write?

Paranormal romance has been my favorite since my late teens. Give me a good hot romance with a witch, wolf, vampire, or demon any day of the week! Love it! I'm the world's most random girl, so I write a bunch of genres. The stories my muse wants me to write seems to be futuristic/science fiction romance as it's the bulk of my works in progress. I counted them the other day and wowza I've started a lot of stories in this genre! But the most fun I've had have had has been with my paranormal works.

2.) You have a lot of books coming out, where do you find the time to write?

I have traded in sleep for writing. I have two young kids and a full time job and a hubby so lots of life commitments pull me away from the computer. I've also given up most tv. I enjoy a few paranormal shows, but when most people are watching tv I'm writing.

3.) I see you have a STEAM PUNK romance coming out with Evernight Publishing. I've never read that subgenre. Can you tell us a bit about it?

Steam punk is great! I love this because I love history and science fiction. Any story set during the victorian era that combine elements of today's technology but created with materials that they would have had at that time is steam punk. It's original, fresh and exciting, I loved writing this story. I veered from tradition and instead of setting my story in England, it's set in Texas during the civil war.

4.) What's your flavor? Alpha male (Dominant, sexy, possessive) or Beta male (Attentive, flowers/candy, cuddles) or OTHER (explain)?

Alpha all the way, Baby! Whoot, I love a hero that knows what he wants and takes it. I don't know how well I'd like this in real life, I hate to be told what to do, but the fantasy of a hunk-a-licious hottie in control in both life and the bedroom really revs my engine. My heroines are always strong too, so my heroes really have their hands full!

5.) What are you working on now and what can we expect from you in the future?

I'm always writing. I try to write at least 1000 words a day. If I don't get my writing in I'm grumpy lol. I write seven days a week so expect to see a bunch more from me in the future. I'm working on a vampire steam punk set in London and I'm also working on another Paranormal YA series of short stories. I've got a bunch of futuristic stuff in the works. I had a eureka moment the other day and I'm hoping that this story is as good as it is in my head. It's going to do a paranormal time travel piece with a hero that I'm already half in love with! This story is going to be something different than my other works, but if it turns out half as good as it is in my head, it'll sell like hotcakes!

Thanks for joining me today, Ashlynn!
