Hello Sarah! Thank you so much for visiting Written Butterfly with me today! It’s such a pleasure to chat with you. So tell me…
Q) How did you dream up the dynamics of your characters?
A: Our Beyond The Veil series was born out of a contest we did in our street team group. Maia, Elena and I thought it might be fun to have our members choose specific things about the characters, and then we would write a short story and post it for them to read. From there, the entire series just came out of nowhere, we had such fun creating this world and the characters.
Q) Is this book part of a series? If so, can you tell us about it?
A: Yes, this is book four in the series. Though it’s a shorter Romance on the Go, this book revisits our original trio from book one. This series put Erica, Ben and Leo through the ringer a little but, so we wanted to elaborate on what their future had in store for them.
Q) Can you give a fun or interesting fact about your book?
A: Maia is from New Zealand, Elena is from New York, and I am from just outside of Vancouver, B.C.; so I suppose I drew the lucky straw in having the story take place here in Vancouver.
Q) Do you plan all your characters out before you start a story or do they develop as you write?
A: We do brainstorm about the general outline of each book, and on the characters, but other than that we kind of just go where the story takes us. At the start of each book, we pick a character each, and then rotate chapter by chapter for each point of view.
Q) What are your upcoming projects?
A: So many projects, so little time! Lol, I still work full time, so I don’t get as much writing done as I’d like, but I have six projects on the go at the moment, and probably another ten or so queued up after that. Currently I’m working on the next book in a sci fi romance series I have with Evernight. Then I have two antho projects to get done, then onto the next Coalition Mates book…as long as the muse co-operates.
Beyond The Veil, Book 4

MFM ménage paranormal romance
They say that when one door closes another shall open, but when Erica made her choice to stop a madman, she couldn’t have imagined the price that she would have to pay. The future she’d risked everything for had just changed forever.
The existence of the Dark Fae and their Goddess comes as a shock, but the fates had one more surprise in store for Erica and her mates in the form of orphaned twin babies who steal their hearts, but these children are not like the Fae Erica is familiar with. They come with powers that she and her husbands know nothing about. Dark Fae council will watch over them to decide if they are capable of raising the twins, making Ben, Erica and Leo feel the pressure of having their every move scrutinized.
When the twin’s dark powers begin to emerge, will one Fae Queen and two warrior shifters have what it takes to navigate the uncertain waters of parenting? …and will the Dark Fae council decide to let them try?

Erica stopped in the doorway and turned to look back at her sleeping babies. The Goddesses truly did work in mysterious ways, she thought. She might not have had the pleasure of birthing the twins, but they were hers. She knew it with everything in her. They were hers!
“Come on, love,” Ben whispered in her ear as he urged her to lean back against him. “Leave them to dream of all the mischief and grief they will cause us over the next few decades. Now that they’re asleep, let’s make the most of this time we have alone.”
Heat swirled within her, and she nodded. They had been Mommy, Poppa, and Daddy all day. Now it was time for Mommy to get her some.
Leo had gone on ahead to the bedroom and lit all the candles they had, creating a golden glow that made Erica look radiant when she entered moments later with Ben. The smile on her face when she looked his way still made his heart skip a beat, just as it had the very first moment he’d seen her.
He would swear that if he didn’t have a shifter’s strength, the sheer joy he’d felt since bringing the babies home and seeing Erica blossom as a mother would have made his heart explode. He couldn’t have anticipated how two small little beings could instantly repair the gaping hole that had been ripped into their souls when the Goddess Allyria had told them the price they would pay for Alefric’s demise. But here they were, starting a new journey together, albeit, this one filled with much less danger, and much more need for an endless supply of wet wipes, but certainly just as important as anything Leo had ever done in his life previous. They would love and protect these children, and they would raise them to be the kind of people who made both sides of the Veil a better place.
“You look so resolved right now, Leo. What are you thinking about?” Erica stopped in front of him to gently caress his cheek with her hand.
“Just about how lucky we are … and how lucky you’re about to get.”
He leaned in to kiss her as he landed a quick smack to her jean covered ass that made her yelp and laugh into his mouth.
“Now we’re talking,” Ben said. He quickly shucked off his own jeans and stepped up behind Erica to unbutton her top, revealing her soft, perfect breasts. He gently pulled back her wrists, using her top as a makeshift rope to bind them behind her.
“How do you want it tonight, baby?” Leo could tell from the quick increase in her breathing that she was in the mood for something a little edgier than “sweet” tonight. “Mmm, I think I know exactly what our naughty little mate is looking for, don’t I, baby?”
He cocked one eyebrow at her, and her eyes grew hooded as she bit down on her lower lip, indicating that she knew exactly the type of evening he had in mind. “Ben, get on the bed, sitting with your back against the headboard. You, my love, strip off those clothes for me, now.”

Maia’s career has featured a lot of travel, and she has filled her time at airports and in the air with books, books and more books.

As long as someone reads her books, gets a laugh and maybe come to love her characters and much as she does, then she feels that she is living her dreams no matter what!

About Sarah Marsh:
Sarah Marsh was born in British Columbia where she still lives. She has only recently began her writing career, finding it the perfect outlet for taking the edge off a nine to five office job. She’s been a science fiction and romance junkie for years and when her imagination started to take the characters she’d read about even further in their adventures, she decided to try writing something of her own.
Sarah’s also a former pastry chef and spends a lot of time cooking and baking for friends and family as well as painting and knitting. Her biggest weaknesses are animals of any kind … she even loves the ones that wake you up at four in the morning because they can almost see the bottom of their food dish.
When it comes to life in general, she’s a big believer that laughter is the best medicine and that there’s no such thing as too much love, which is why she’s such a sucker for a happy ending.
