In DEATH WARMED OVER which will be available in a couple weeks, you will meet a new character by the name of Susan. If you thought Lily was tough, wait until you get a load of the very serious and skilled woman who protects the King of New Orleans. She's deadly, folks.
The inspiration for this character is a lovely friend of mine, and although she isn't a sword fighter, she's a pretty tough gal. Brilliant, funny, independent and a great friend with fiery red hair. How could she not be a character in my books, right?
