Rionna Morgan with M.V. Freeman

M.V. Freeman is stopping in a visit today.  We are fellow Crimson Romance writers, but more importantly friends.  M.V. is a joy to chat with.  She has an elegance about her that makes one feel comfortable and listened to.  And you should read her writing!  Wow!  She is here with us talking about Incandescent, the first in an amazing new trilogy!

Where are you from? 
 I am originally from Minnesota, but I am happily ensconced in the southeast. I love the weather better (I don’t miss the sub-zero temperatures). I do miss a white Christmas.

Tell us your latest news? 
My first book, Incandescent is out, and I am currently working on the second book. Sounds very short…but this is huge for me.

Buy on Amazon!


Some gifts are unwanted, and Laurie’s Hudson’s affinity for fire is one she hates. It has destroyed her relationship with her family and she has few friends. She’s fought hard to keep the fire inside suppressed, living a low key life as a bartender, until a brutal and charming man blows into her life.

Around Mikhail Petrov, her careful control disintegrates. She is at once drawn to his urbane, cool demeanor and irritated by his overbearing manner. Her options are taken away when he kidnaps her, forcing her into a fight she wants nothing to do with.

As she learns to survive, Laurie faces the hardest choice of all, her freedom or the destruction of the frustrating man she’s come to care for.

Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp?
The main thing is I want the reader to enjoy the story. But it’s also about dealing with the hand you are dealt and responsibility.

If someone wrote a book about your life, what would they title it? 
Probably: Adventure: Another name for –Graphic Training Aid.

What is the ultimate dream vacation? 
I would love to live for a year (I’d take a month—even a week) in a Castle or Bed and Breakfast in Ireland. I’d explore all the castles—talk to the locals and drink the beer. I love the weather there—cool and misty most of the time. Granted I only know this by research.
Follow MV on Twitter!

What person in history would you most like to meet? 
I’d love to talk to Margaret Thatcher. Now that is a woman with strength and character.

If you could design a refrigerator magnet, what would it say? 
“Everyone Has a Story.” Or “Never Forget the Coffee.”

M.V. Freeman is a native of Minnesota, but calls North Alabama her home. She is a member of RWA,
and the chapters: Georgia Romance Writers, Southern Magic, and Heart of Dixie. By day her mind is filled with medical jargon at the local health clinic, but at night she finds herself exploring alternate worlds within our own. Heavily influenced by Slavic languages and culture, you will find she weaves these elements into her stories. Her award winning current story INCANDESCENT is the first in a series. She is currently working on the second book in the series while plotting another project. When she is not writing, she's reading, cooking, throwing around kettle bells, or making coffee.


  1. I love these questions and such a great interview! I can hear M.V.'s voice when I read the answers. I wish you tons of success in your writing career!

    1. Thank you Kellie!
      I thought the questions were very interesting. Especially about the title for a book about my life. ;)

      Thank you for stopping by and it warms my heart at your well wishes!

  2. You are amazing, MV, and have so much to offer the world of great storytelling. Margaret Thatcher would scare the bejeezus out of me, but good for you!! And Ireland, yes, what paranormal writer wouldn't want to go to the land of magic. Thanks for sharing! Loved this so much.

    1. Pam, you are wonderful--you made me smile!
      Thank you for your kind words.
      One day, I *will* get to Ireland!--You are right--a paranormal writer's dream. Do you want to visit one day?

  3. What a lovely interview! It's so nice to get to know you better, Mary. Imagine, an Irish castle for a year! Wow, I'd love to visit. Writing retreat?

    Fabulous new blog, ladies! Congratulations.

    1. Thank you Sharon!
      This is a fabulous idea!!
      Wouldn't that be the most inspirational place?
      Tell you what--if I get a chance I will happily host a writers retreat...
      Now I'm really getting motivated.

  4. M.V.
