Andrea R. Cooper

Biography

Andrea R. Cooper’s favorite childhood memories revolved around creating vibrant characters for her friends, and then acting out their adventures. Inside her fantasy worlds of darkened forests, dragon-filled glades, and iced islands, nothing was banned. From the ethereal Elvin to the most maligned Vampires, all were welcome in her fictional realities, a stark contrast to her home, where the magical and mythical was forbidden.

Divorced and disillusioned of love and believing all the love songs and books exaggerated, she put aside her creativity for life. Many years past before characters, from the familiar to the freshly conceived, came to her again, but this time teasing at a new passion, the written word.

Gradually, her real life hero brought love and magic back into existence. During the time when her characters were getting reacquainted, the love of her life was showing her that true love never gives up and rekindles no matter how many times others attempt to extinguish it. Today, she is happily married with three children.

Currently, she has two novels published with Crimson Romance. The Garnet Dagger Book One of a series– a fantasy/ paranormal with a light romance thread, and Viking Fire – historical romance with a touch of magic.

Andrea believes in the power of change and delighting in each moment. But most fervently, she believes in the magic of love and imagination again.

Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind your latest book?
Fallen is Book 2 in the Claimed series, my new paranormal romance. This follows the story of Adeline and Jack on their adventures of falling in love and running from a Master Vampire.
Excerpt:
In the darkness, crickets chirped as she hiked up the small hill to the road. Cars zipped past her, but she hailed a taxi, then went
back for Jack.
“You’ve got money?” he asked after he slid into the taxi. “My wallet’s probably at the bottom of the ocean back in the States.”
She laughed, and the taxi lurched forward. “Mine would be too if I hadn’t tripled-tied my purse to my hip.” She showed him the worn strap. “Guess I need to transfer everything to my jeans. Another benefit of skintight clothes—no wiggle room for things in my pocket to slip out.”
“I’ll pay you back for the ride and the hotel. Somehow.”
“Don’t worry about it.” Heat crept into her cheeks. “Let’s gather the stuff for Beth.”
“Then what? You’ll turn me over so you can get paid?” He faced her, his hands balled into fists.
Now the heat spread down to her chest. “I-I don’t know. Let’s get past these next few days.”
“Who’s paying you for me?” His tone deepened with each word.
“Shhh.” She elbowed him in the ribs. “Let’s talk things over in the hotel room.”
How to tell him that she didn’t know who put the capture out on him? She simply got a hit and followed through. No details on the client were ever provided, and she never cared before. She scrolled through her cell as the taxi turned at a light, and Greek swear words were exchanged between their driver and an electric scooter rider. Jack’s eyes closed, and his head rested on the back of the seat, his cheeks pale.
What would she do if the order came from the master vampire who was after him? Jack tied himself to Beth to save Adeline. How can I repay him? The crystal latched onto her wrist caught the light. Right, if I don’t get this thing removed soon, all of my kin nearing 5,000 years will put a bounty on me. Visiting the Oracle, on behalf of a witchdoctor, would give her the chance to get information about removing the quartz without dying.
Her gaze glided over the Oracle voodoo doll. No, she’d probably be lucky if the Oracle didn’t strangle them when she met them.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
Actually, I'm a hybrid both indie and with publishers. Ultimately though, it was my readers and fans wanting more stories. I received so many positive reviews and questions about what my characters that I decided to self-publish my novellas.
