Another Author Acrostic! This time with the ravishing Leanna Renee Hieber. Her new book is out NOW!
World of Miss Natalie
Tested by the paranormal
There is no peaceful
Rest for Natalie
As new haunts and nightmares plague our
Even though the dashing Lord
Denbury is seen at his very best,
Yes, something wicked this way comes.

And some other twisted, tantalizing tidbits...
NZ: I was lucky enough to attend a reading of your story "Too Fond" now featured at tor.com. Tell us about this haunting, gothic tale?
LRH: It's a sort of Victorian Twilight Zone, featuring a hair jeweler who becomes more entwined with a man who enters her shop than either of them bargained for...
NZ: What are you working on now?
LRH: THE ETERNA FILES: Coming 2014 from TOR Books / Macmillan, a new quirky, character-driven Gaslamp Fantasy saga set in 1882 following a paranormal arms race for immortality between New York City and London. A huge cast of larger-than-life characters fight for hearth, home and the cure for death. Including but not limited to: mediums, chemists, healers, spies, uncanny detectives, royalty, magicians, sword-fighters, robber barons, mutants, psychic vampires, visionaries, prophets, excellent book-keepers, fearsome civil servants, covert operatives, unorthodox espionage, one poor skeptic and a circus. And that's just book one.
NZ: I'm coming to your home state. Where's the best place:
LRH: (I grew up in Ohio but I'm answering this for NYC)
...for a writer to visit? Central Park and The Metropolitan Museum of Art
...to grab a latte? The Hungarian Pastry Shop with a view of Saint John The Divine Cathedral
To write... Yaffa Cafe (I write there constantly)
To read... Central Park. In winter: The New York Public Library Reading Room
To get a taste of Darker Still (and other cool New York Victoriana)... All the places I mention in the novel that are still standing, check out the beautiful Brooklyn Bridge, the Metropolitan Museum of Art and there's nothing that's more a testament to the Victorian Era in NYC than Central Park, a glorious, gorgeous feat of human engineering. Also, Greenwood and Woodlawn cemeteries, gorgeous 19th century garden-style cemeteries.
