Please welcome special guest, Eve Kenin AKA Eve Silver!
Thanks for inviting me to guest blog. I asked Tatiana, the heroine of HIDDEN (July 2008 ) these questions at the beginning of her story. She offered some interesting replies:
I am: both brave and afraid, part warrior, part waif
I like: I’m not certain yet what I like. I spent my life trapped in a cell, prisoner of a madman, Duncan Bane, scientific test subject of a monster, Gavin Ward. I haven’t quite figured out yet what I like.
I wish: I could see my siblings once more. Wizard. Yuriko. They were all I had, and now I am alone.
I wonder: if my brother is alive. I haven’t seen Wizard in years, and I suspect he’s dead…but something inside of me whispers that maybe, just maybe, he escaped the hell of our prison, the cruel grasp of Duncan Bane. Maybe he survived. Our sister, Yuriko is dead. My fault. But Wizard…
I dream: that I find him. That he didn’t die. That I am not completely, utterly alone.
I pretend: whatever I need to pretend to face each day, to face myself, to get the job done.
I know: I will find Tolliver and Ward. And I will stop them. Or I will die trying.
I fear: small confined spaces. Large open spaces. People. Everything. Nothing. I make myself feel nothing.
I worry: about…No. I don’t let myself worry. It is a wasteful expenditure of resources.
I appreciate: my genetic enhancements, though at one time, I despised them. Now, they’ve kept me alive in more than one desperate situation, and I’ve learned to value my unique abilities.
I hope: to kill Tolliver, and then to kill Ward. To rid the world of two twisted, evil monsters who have no morals, no ethics.
I look: in the mirror and wonder who I am. Who I really am.
I read: anything and everything. Knowledge is power.
I want: to understand the way people think. Normal human interaction is so foreign to me.
I dance to: I have never danced. Perhaps some day I will learn.
I am happy when: I stand in the arboretum in New Edmonton and breathe in the smell of fresh, green foliage. There are so few trees left here now. The Waste is a barren, frozen stretch of forever.
I wonder if Tatiana would give the same answers at the end of her story. It’d be interesting to check in with her and see if she’s learned to dance.

Thanks Eve and Tatiana for that great interview!
Eve has been really busy and has several upcoming releases under both Eve Kenin and Eve Silver. Take a look…
HIDDEN by Eve Kenin
Tatiana has honed her genetic gifts to perfection. She can withstand the subzero temperatures of the Northern Waste, read somebody’s mind with the briefest touch, and slice through bone with her bare hands. Which makes her one badass chick, all right. Nothing gets to her. Until she meets Tristan. Villain or ally, she can’t be sure. But one thing she does know: he has gifts too-including the ability to ramp up her heart rate to dangerous levels. But before they can start some chemistry of their own, they have to survive being trapped in an underground lab, hunted by a madman, and exposed to a plague that could destroy mankind.

Elizabeth Canham has accepted a teaching position at the local boarding school in Yorkshire. But her quiet life takes a surprising turn when she meets Griffin Fairfax-the handsome father of one of her pupils.

Griffin Fairfax appears to be a doting father and gentleman. But one disturbing truth lies at the heart of the murders-all of the victims were intimately connected to him.

DEMON’S HUNGER by Eve Silver
Forensic anthropologist Vivien Cairn fears she’s losing her mind. Her libido has kicked into overdrive, and she’s blacking out-leaving hours of her life unaccounted for and no memory of where she’s been…or what she’s done. But when a sexy stranger rescues her from a demon attack, Vivien realizes there’s more than just her sanity at stake…
A seductive killer is luring victims, and Sorcerer Dain Hawkins finds himself walking a dangerous line between ancient duty and sizzling desire when the brotherhood-and Vivien herself-begin to suspect that her mysterious symptoms may connect her to the crimes.
