Chat with Anastasia Plum from Keeper of the Golden Dragon's Heart by Gemma K. Murray

Well, our lovely Gemma K. Murray had intended on blogging today, but she’s a little busy working on Book 3 in the Cedar River series. I’m Anastasia Plum and I thought I’d help one of my favorite women out. After all, she managed to help me catch my favorite flyboy, Bowie. Oops, speak of the devil himself, here he comes.

Bowie: What are you doing, babe? (cocking an eyebrow)

Ana: I’m helping Gemma. She’s so busy working on Brady and Silver’s story and I know how important this is to her.

Bowie: (shaking head) Darlin’, do you know what you’re doing?

Ana: (glares at Bowie) Are you saying I can’t manage to tell our story without screwing it up? Get out, Bowie! (points finger toward the front door)

Bowie: (bends to kiss his wife) I never said that, but I love you. Take it easy today. (waves to the readers)

Ana: That man aggravates me! Okay, where was I? Oh right, let me tell you about the woman who I blessed with our story.
Her name is Gemma K. Murray and she resides in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. I watched her for a while before deciding this was the author to tell the stories of Cedar River and their residents.
See, Gemma had a hard time believing in her talent, so her writing career was simply not a career. One night I snuck into her dreams and allowed the story to unfold. We butted heads, she and I. Foolish woman tried to make me a wolf-shifter. (I stopped speaking to her for about a week over that mistake!) Finally, the story was finished. Bowie and I told everyone in Cedar River about Gemma. They began to clamor at the gates of her dreams, begging for their story to be told as well. When Keeper of the Golden Dragon’s Heart was released in March, Gemma cried, but she returned to her keyboard and began Adam Thomas’ story. Once again, foolish woman thought she knew whose story to tell next…she was wrong.
(Ana takes a sip of her tea and nibble of chocolate) Let’s see, I should tell you about Cedar River. Cedar River is a small community set along the shores of Lake Superior in the U.P. Shifters of every shape and size call Cedar River home. We’ve managed to stay hidden for many years, but now there are some religious zealots who think shifters need to be destroyed. Keeper of the Golden Dragon’s Heart allows the reader to step into our world.
Do you want to see the cover? The artist made me look FINE!
Blurb-The Upper Peninsula of Michigan seems like it is another country. The rawness and beauty of the land draws people from every walk of life. What most people don't realize is there is a little town nestled on the banks of Lake Superior that an entire group of supernatural beings call home. Shifters of every shape and size live there. They raise their families there. Tourists come from near and far to visit the quaint town of Cedar River, Michigan. The tourists never realize they are walking among some of the most unusual beings on earth.

Bowie Golden is a dragon shifter who is in charge of Cedar River's safety. Until now, the biggest threat to anyone's safety was Anastasia Plum, a witch/puma-shifter. She has been the town hellraiser since she was a teenager. Now someone has discovered the secret the residents of Cedar River keep for one another. These radicals are determined to eradicate the entire town. It's up to Bowie to keep them all safe.

Ana has always idolized Bowie. She may have stirred up trouble from time to time, but Bowie or one of his brothers would always get her out of the trouble she was in. One day, it happened. The unthinkable, the unimaginable occurred. Anastasia Plum fell for the "golden" boy. What an unlikely duo- the sheriff and the hellraiser!
Just as these two discover their passion for one another, a group of people is determined to keep them apart. It's up to Ana to prove that she is the only Keeper of the Golden Dragon's Heart.

Ana:Doesn’t that sound like a great book? (I may be a little biased.) I promised Gemma I wouldn’t talk too long.

On behalf of Gemma, I want to say “Thank you” for allowing us to come visit with you today! I had a blast and I know Gemma will be on to answer any questions a little later on. The woman has to take a break sometimeJ Have a bright and beautiful day filled with blessings! Bye-bye!

Thank you, Dani! I thought Ana did a wonderful job:) I was slightly worried she'd go off-topic, but she did very well.
