Thanks for having me on the Book Reader Addicts Blog! Happy 2nd Anniversary!
I’m Lisa Kessler. I’m a San Diego native, which means I am also a weather wimp! I pull on a parka when the temperature dips below 65 degrees, and I wilt when the humidity creeps up.
So imagine my horror when I took a research trip to Chichen Itza in the middle of the Yucatan rainforest in July. Yikes!!! LOL
My son was small then and he’d never been anywhere so hot and humid. At one point as we were leaving the Mayan ruins and returning to the bus, he tried to run and catch up with his sister, but his legs wouldn’t cooperate. He whined, “Mama, I can’t run... I can’t live!” LOL
Thankfully we did live, and with my pile of notes and photos, I had everything I needed for my Night Series. I wanted to create a race of vampire-like immortals that weren’t from Europe, so I turned toward the oldest civilization in the Americas. As scientists translate more of the Maya glyphs, we learn more and more about the Mayan culture, but the reason behind their disappearance is still up for debate.
I took that unsolved mystery and gave it a paranormal twist that I hope readers will enjoy.
The newest book in my Night Series, Night Thief, just released this month. It’s a prequel to Night Walker, and it introduces one of the original Night Walkers, Kane.
After the fall of the Mayan civilization, Kane, an immortal Night Walker, has taken refuge in France for over 800 years. The modern world holds little interest for him until the night he meets the Golden Thief and is robbed of much more than his pocket watch.
Marguerite Rousseau is living a double life. By day she is the assistant to an eccentric French artist, Antoine Berjon, and by night she dons elegant evening gowns to woo French dignitaries before lifting their wallets.
Sparks ignite when Kane captures the thief, but Marguerite harbors a dark secret that could ruin them both.
