Rawhide 'n Roses Author Simone Beaudelaire

Simone Beaudelaire: mild-mannered French teacher by day, steamy romance novelist by night. Naturally, Mme Beaudelaire is a nom de plum... or possibly a nom de guerre. The teacher lives with her husband, three children, and one fat tabby cat in Texas. Her alter-ego could be anywhere, any time.

What inspired your short story in Rawhide 'n Roses?

I have a friend at church who is a mature widower and has been alone a long time. I wrote this in honor of him.

The road to becoming a published author is rarely smooth, what were some of your most noteworthy bumps or potholes?

I think finding beta readers was a big hurdle. Finding a cover artist is my most recent struggle.

The Nephilim. Half human, half angel. They hide in the light, eternal, chaste, and beautiful. They protect the children of men from the Succubae, daughters of Lilith. Dangerous demonesses who prey on men leaving them worse than dead.
