1.)   Quickly, give us the title and genre of your book and a 30-word or less tagline:

Dancing with Lions, published by Untreed Reads. It’s literary historical genre. Michal, daughter of Saul, is in love with David. Because of her father, David is forced to flee – but what will happen when he returns to claim her?

2.)   Who is your favorite character and why?

In this story, Paltiel, Michal’s first husband. He’s an honorable man and gets a very raw deal.

3.)   If you could change ONE thing about your novel, what would it be?  Why?

It’s a long short story rather than a novel, but if it could have had a happier ending for Paltiel, I would have given him it!

4.)  Give us one interesting fun fact about your book or series:

It’s only one of my series of stories focusing on women of the bible as I thought it was high time for biblical women to step up and show their menfolk what they’re made of!

5.)   How can we contact you or find out more about your books?

I can be found at http://www.annebrooke.com/ and at www.facebook.com/annebrooke. I also keep a journal at http://annebrooke.blogspot.com/

6.)   What can we expect from you in the future?

Coming up are one fantasy novel (The Gifting), one gay psychological thriller (A Dangerous Man), plus two erotic short stories (The Boilerman and The Bride; and Tuluscan Six and the Time Circle), and one fantasy short story, Creative Accountancy for Beginners (from Untreed Reads)

7.)   And now, before you go, how about a snippet from your book that is meant to intrigue and tantalize us:

‘Michal.’ My father’s voice was like grit in a stream. ‘I have news for you. Something that will make you very happy.’

            He moved closer and the bitter smell of dried sweat swept over me. I clenched my jaw, willing myself not to flinch as one rough finger touched my face, moving down to stroke my neck.

            ‘Yes, Michal, I have something good to tell you. Would you like to hear it?’

            ‘Of course, my king.’

            ‘And you shall.’ His hand lingered for a moment on my skin before cupping my breast through the cloak’s soft fabric. ‘You’re nearly of age now. When did that happen, daughter?’
