About this author

My newest book is "The Raven," which released February 3rd. Its prequel, "The Prince," was released January 20th. The sequel to "The Raven" is entitled "The Shadow" and it's already available for preorder.

I am honoured to have had my novels appear on the New York Times and USAToday Bestseller lists.

I was a Semifinalist for Best Author in the 2011 and 2012 Goodreads Choice Awards. "Gabriel's Inferno" was a Semifinalist for Best Romance in 2011 and "Gabriel's Rapture" was a Finalist for Best Romance in 2012, in the Goodreads Choice Awards, as well. The final novel in The Gabriel Series, "Gabriel's Redemption," debuted at #6 on the New York Times Bestseller list. It was a Finalist for a 2014 Goodreads Choice Award as Best Romance.

Hello Crystal,
Thanks for your question.

Sometimes lines come to me fully formed. This was one of them. When I was writing that scene, I imagined Gabriel partially teasing Julia. But he respects her innocence and is honoured by her sharing it with him, of all people.

I think the Professor is the only person who could get away with saying the things he says …

All the best and thanks for reading,

Hello Katherine.
Thanks for the question.

I've always been taken with the poetic books in the Hebrew Bible - the book of Job, Song of Songs, and Ecclesiastes, for example.

In terms of narrative, I've always liked the Gospel according to St. John.

All the best and thanks for reading,

Sonya I want to read "Gabriel's Inferno" so badly! I've been waiting for this day (the release) for a while now! But is it going to be available on either kobo or kindle?? I'm quite a distance from any book stores, so I really depend on ebooks!
I've read many great ratings, and the wait has been killing me! Lol

Hello Miss Sonya,
I know we've talked about this via email, but I thought I'd post an answer here, too.
Yes, the book will be available for Kindle on the day it's released. No worries about that. I should have a firm release date soon but it's looking like it will be close to Easter in April.
All best and thanks for your support,
SR

Hi Miss BD,

Debbie  **loves spring** Schirmann Hi SR, I was able to order GI from Amazon at 5:30am (I got up a little for work so I could order it). Now I just have to wait a couple of days and I'll be able to read it. I just want to say how excited I am for you and very proud that I have been with you from your start. I expect great things from you and I know GI is just the first many great novels you will bring us. Again Congratulations on your successful day and I wish you many more.

Ana Thanks for adding me, SR! :) Huge fan of yours ever since you started UEOM. I'm incredibly excited for your published work! Just wanted to ask if Gabriel's Inferno would be available in bookstores in Asia? I'm afraid I don't have much access to ordering online.

I wish you a happy Easter :)

Hello Miss Ana,
Thank you for finding me on Goodreads! It's good to hear from you.
At the moment, the book is only available online either as an electronic book (In PDF or for a Kindle or a Nook, that you upload immediately to your computer) or as a paperback. Amazon.com ships worldwide.

I'm sorry to say at the moment the books aren't available in stores in Asia.

And I wish you a Happy Easter as well,

Hello Miss Ronika,
It's a pleasure to hear from you. Thanks for finding me on Goodreads.

The sequel is in progress, so I don't have a release date yet. I'm hopeful that by the end of the summer I'll have a better idea of when it will be published.
Once the date is set, the publisher will announce it and I'll be able to post it on my website and Twitter.
