Author Interview- Chrys Fey

Good morning readers. 
Join with me this Sunday in welcoming returning author Chrys Fey 
as she introduces us to her latest book, 
30 Seconds.

Good morning Chrys, tell me three words that describe yourself starting with A, B, and C.

Auntie – I am an aunt to two boys who I love with all of my heart.
Book lover – How could I not love books?
Crafty – I enjoy doing arts-and-crafts.

 What are your three favorite things?

 My four adopted cats – Milo, Otis, Cole, and Clover.
 My Skullcandy headphones.
 Tea. I love a good cup of hot tea.

   Music is a big influence on my writing. I have certain songs that inspire each chapter, or the whole book. What helps to inspire you?

Music is also a big influence on my writing. I actually named “30 Seconds” in honor of my favorite band, Thirty Seconds to Mars. Their song “Attack” played on repeat while I wrote an exciting scene. And the song, “I Can’t Make You Love Me” by Bonnie Raitt, helped me capture my heroine’s emotions when she thinks Blake doesn’t love her as much as she loves him.

     What’s the one thing you would do if you could be your character for a day?

If I could be Officer Blake Herro, I would arrest people. I have a list! If I could be Dr. Dani Hart, I would hop into bed. Preferably with Blake. *wink*

 Will there be more books in your series, or can you tell us about any previous books?

There won’t be any books following “30 Seconds”, but I am working on a sequel to my previously published “Hurricane Crimes”. These two books are going to be part of a series dedicated to disasters and crimes. I am pretty excited about it.


When Officer Blake Herro agreed to go undercover in the Mob, he thought he understood the risks. But he's made mistakes and now an innocent woman has become their target. He's determined to protect her at all costs.

The Mob's death threat turns Dr. Dani Hart's life upside down, but there is one danger she doesn’t anticipate. As she's dodging bullets, she's falling in love with Blake. With danger all around them, will she and Blake survive and have a happy ending, or will the Mob make good on their threat?


She panted with fear. What if they see the chest? What if we get caught? What if my breath stinks and I’m breathing right into Officer Hottie’s face? She shut her mouth and let oxygen flow through her nose.
Her eyesight slowly adjusted to the darkness and she could see Officer Herro’s silhouette. His head was turned and he was listening to the thuds of heavy boots getting louder; the intruders were coming their way.
Then the thunder of footsteps sounded right next to them. “There’s no one here, Red,” someone announced.
“Look for documents,” a man ordered, who Dani could only assume was Red. “I want the name of the person I’m going to kill.”
A moment later, there was a reply. “All the mail is addressed to a Dr. Hart.”
Hearing her name said aloud by one of the men who had ransacked her place made her want to gasp. Her mouth fell open and her breath was reversing into her lungs, but before she could make a sound, Officer Herro lowered his lips to hers, silencing her. Stunned, she could only lie beneath him with her eyes wide and her body tense. She couldn’t believe he was kissing her. She wanted to push him back, but knew if she did he might hit the inside of the chest, giving away their hiding place. That was when she realized he was kissing her so she wouldn’t gasp.
She let her body relax. After her initial shock faded, she was able to feel his lips. They were comforting and caused a reaction deep inside her. She couldn’t stop her lips from reacting to his. It was an innocent connection, a soft touch of lips. Until his hand slid from her shoulder to her neck and the kiss deepened into something else.

  1. Thanks for being with us today Chrys. I adore your cover and your blurb is very intriguing- "as she's dodging bullets, she's falling in love"- awesome.

    1. Thank you for having me on your blog today, Angela! I so very much appreciate your help and support. And I'm so happy that you like the cover and blurb. :D

  2. This must be why you asked me about music in my interview with you, Chris. And boy did I bite. Gave you about ten songs and classical pieces, a youtube link and told you about Laurence Olivier too. I identify with you about music and I play musical scores in my head as I write. It contributes to the writing and mood and even confidence.

    1. Thanks for your comment, Larry! And I didn't mind at all that your answer was long. I love to find out what find of music/songs inspire writers with their stories and help them when they write. :)

  3. Enjoyable blurb! I have some Bonnie Raitt songs that inspire me, too, but if I listen to music when I write, I usually get too distracted. Best of luck with the book.

    1. Bonnie Raitt has great songs. Thank you, Barbara! :)
