To win over the chief’s haughty son, a drug-dealing punk from a dysfunctional family must risk the only two things he has: his reputation and freedom.

Billy Redsky, a rebellious punk who loves art and nature, is saddled with a welfare-leeching, alcoholic mother and criminal older brother who are the joke of their Ojibway community. Sick and tired of being perceived as a loser, Billy deals drugs for his older brother to earn quick money. He hopes if he buys a dirt bike, he’ll finally impress the chief’s popular and aloof son, René Oshawee.

When the two are forced to serve detention together, a friendship begins to bloom, but much to Billy’s frustration, René keeps putting him on ice. To make his biggest dream come true if he finally wants to call René his own, Billy must make a huge decision that could cost him everything.

 

Interview:

Hey Maggie! First I want to say welcome to Two Chicks on Books I’m glad you could stop by for a chat! TWO PRINCES sounds AWESOME and I can’t wait for everyone to read it!

For the readers: can you tell us a little bit about the TWO PRINCES and the characters?

I sure can!  Two Princes is the first book in the When We Were Young series.  Here is the series tagline and blurb:

I thought I saved you, but maybe you saved me too.

Blurb: At their Ojibway community, Billy Redsky, a drug-dealing punk, and René Oshawee, the chief’s haughty son, must walk the “red road” to finally confront their biggest fears:  conquering the self-imposed obstacles in their path, if they are to have what they long for above anything else—to finally be together.

What are you working on now?

I finished proofs with Devine Destinies for Toy Soldiers, the second book in the When We Were Young series, and I’m fast-drafting the third book in the series, tentatively called Knight Moves.  I also finished proofs with eXtasy Books for my Thanksgiving short story called Because of You.  And I’m in edits with Devine Destinies for my Christmas short story called Better Than Gold.

So expect new releases from me in October, November, and December!

Were any of the characters in the book inspired by people from your real life?

No.  Every character I write comes from my imagination.

Who was your favorite character to write? What about your least favorite?

For Two Princes, or for all of my published books so far?  If we’re talking about Two Princes, definitely Billy Redsky.  I really adore his tenacity, his go-getting attitude, and his spunkiness.

If we’re talking all of my books, Emery Matawapit from Blessed, book one in the Matawapit Family Series.  I admire Emery’s spirituality, his patience, kindness, and ability to view the world from the many POVs of others.

What is your favorite passages/scenes in TWO PRINCES?

This is tough because I love every scene in the book.  If I must pick one, I’d say it’s Billy in the hot seat.  I can’t say much else or I’ll give away some spoilers!

What kind of research did you have to do for the story?

First Nations policing.  Thank goodness the husband and I have First Nations constables as friends (and one is my nephew in law!)  One in particular was a big help with criminal court, family court, the law, etc.

Who is your ultimate book boyfriend/girlfriend?

I always hear the word book boyfriend but I’m not sure what it means LOL.  But if I’m to pick my fave romance pairing, no other couple out of all the books I’ve read so far (and I’ve read tons and tons) has ever come close to Chandos and Courtney Hart from A Heart So Wild by Johanna Lindsey.

What inspired you to write this story?

Grunge and the 90s, because that’s when the book takes place.  I love that era very much, and the music.

 

Lightning Round Questions

 

What are you reading right now? Or what do you have on your TBR that you’re dying to read?

 

I’m currently reading Memoir of a Roadie by Joel Miller.  Being a total music junkie, I’m always reading memories/biographies/autobiographies about everything related to the music industry, whether about musicians, groupies, wives, managers…and now a roadie!

 

As for what’s next in the queue, I’ll be starting Grandstand by Amy-Alex Campbell, a m/m contemporary romance set in Australia.

 

Instagram, Twitter or Facebook?

 

I’m not a big fan of social media.  I only use it because I have to as a writer.  I don’t have Instagram.  Facebook and Twitter are all about I can handle.  I’d say Facebook. 

 

Favorite Superhero?

 

Nanabush.  He is the “superhero” in traditional Ojibway stories.

 

Favorite TV show?

 

Murdoch Mysteries

 

Sweet or Salty?

 

Salty

 

Any Phobias?

 

I’m not a big fan of heights.

 

Song you can’t get enough of right now?

 

Rollin’ by State of Shock

 

Fall 2020 Movie you’re most looking forward to?

 

I can’t say I’m looking forward to any fall movies.  I tend to wait for them to come on TV, and I watch them then.  But if there is a new Star Trek movie coming out, I’d be the first in line.  I am loving the Star Trek reboot.

 

Thanks so much Maggie for answering my questions! I can’t wait for everyone to read TWO PRINCES!
