Interview with D.D. Marks

Tough question, but describe your books in 5 words:

A reader once described my works better than I’ve ever managed, so here it is: Bullet-proof kevlar bodice rippers.

How long have you been a writer and what inspired you to become an author:

I’ve been writing fiction for 11 years, but I became a full-time professional author in 2011. I think I wanted to be an author as early as six years old, thanks to my Dad reading me The Hobbit every night before bed. Telling stories has always been in my blood, and I’m just grateful I have the chance to do it for a living.

What is the Olesia Anderson Series about:

Olesia is a corporate espionage specialist who does dirty work for multinationals – stealing patents, kidnapping and extortion, blowing up manufacturing plants and everything in between. Her life changes when she encounters a home-grown terrorist cell stealing, murdering and extorting their way across the globe. With Olesia in their sights, her simple job turns into a fight for her life and a search for truth in a business built on lies.

The Olesia Anderson series are pure pulp spy novellas, packed from cover to cover with explosions, gunfights, car chases, betrayals and a healthy dose of sex.

What other authors would you compare your books to:

Readers have compared the series to Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum series, or Ian Fleming’s Bond… if Bond were a woman with less tact and a bit of a vengeful streak.

What’s the plan for the rest of 2014:

I’ve tried to release two Olesia Anderson novellas every year since I started writing them, but this year I’ll only be releasing one… but it’s a double-length adventure, so everything balances out! It sees Olesia and a team of mercenaries jetting off to Venezuela in an all-or-nothing bid to prevent… well, I shouldn’t spoil anything. But it’ll be out in time for Christmas!

Thanks so much for featuring me on your blog, Chris. It’s been great chatting with you.
