Author Gabrina Garza Tells All

June 5, 2007 | Interviews

ST: Hi, Gabrina Garza, welcome and thank you for visiting with us this week. Tell us a about yourself.
GG: Well, I’ve been writing for a very long time, since I was around seven, which gives me about twenty-two years of experience. My first love is fantasy, so I write a lot of fantasy-inspired stories as well as some more modern-day chick-lit/women’s fic stuff. Most of my stuff is erotic in content.

I’ve got a very corny, sometime dirty, and definitely twisted sense of humor. If I haven’t misheard what my friends have said, I have a witty sense of humor, though the “w” might easily be replaced with an “s”.

ST: Your debut novel, HOT PHOENIX NIGHTS, released in May, looks to be a fun and hot read. Let’s show everyone your gorgeous cover.


ST: Please tell us about the book.
GG: It’s about a Latina music reviewer scorned by her cheating boyfriend who decides to have a fling while out of town. She doesn’t expect to fall in love with this hot, Navajo drummer named Crow, who sort of turns the tables on her in a very good way.

ST: How did you come up with the story line?
GG: I’d have to have you eliminated if I told you that. LOL It was actually a challenge offered up, which I accepted. It was a lot of fun to write, and I hope that people check out the preview to see for themselves.

ST: And where and can we buy HOT PHOENIX NIGHTS?
GG: The e-book is available only at Amber Heat . I also have an audio version available for 3 dollars plus a dollar for shipping. The audio book was recorded by Leesa Mitchell, an awesome radio deejay and fellow animal lover like me. You can contact me at if you’d like an audio copy autographed by me. They make great coasters.

ST: How did you and Amber Heat come together?
GG: Dinner, drinks, and suddenly I was feeling very loose. Just kidding. I was one of the 2007 winners for their Amber Heat contest, which led them into buying HOT PHOENIX NIGHTS for May and the contest winning story ADENO for June.

ST: Thanks for stopping by today, Gabrina. Will we see you in the morning?
GG: I’ll be here!

ST: Until then…

Happy Writing!
