Today we’re going to explore the magical world of Angela Wallace. Angela is the author of 3 urban fantasy novels, two of which are part of the 5-star rated series, Elemental Magic.

You’re on, Angela!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Thank you for having me today, Marcia!  It is quite an honor.

The urban fantasy genre tends to be dominated by strong, kick-ass heroines.  They don’t get squeamish at the sight of blood, have no problem taking on a horde of demons released from hell, and manage to tame the dark, brooding male vampire who would be quite the evildoer if not for this gal’s influence.

How many of you can relate to this woman?  Sure, we probably wouldn’t mind being her on certain occasions.  That no-nonsense attitude could come in handy when we need to stand up for ourselves.  But what she fails to showcase are the many other ways in which women–everyday women–can be strong, sexy, and smart.

In my Elemental Magic series, Aileen Donovan, the main character, is not the lock-and-load type.  Yes, she knows how to use a gun, but she doesn’t like to.  And she can hold her own in a fight with her supernatural water wielding, but she isn’t what you would call a badass.  She’s a scientist with an insatiable penchant for solving mysteries–which invariably gets her into trouble.Dry Spell by Angela Wallace

So how is she strong?  She’s willing to stand up for those she cares about.  Maybe she wouldn’t go after the bad guy for the sake of bravery or glory alone, but once he threatens her friends, you can bet she’ll be up in his face.  But what makes her strong isn’t just the fact she supports others; it’s that she also accepts their help and their strengths.  It takes a great deal more effort to trust people and depend on them than it does to stand alone.  Aileen has to learn this though, and who better to teach her than the handsome Coastguardsman?  😉

Aileen doesn’t need Colin to “complete her.”  Her self-confidence and self-reliance make her sexy without anyone’s affirmation.  But the right man does highlight her strengths and bring out the best in her.  It’s because of Colin’s influence that she is able to grow.  In the second book, Dry Spell, Aileen has to learn that being “true to herself” shouldn’t overshadow and hurt those around her.  Colin tests her perceptions, until she learns there is a fine line between confidence and arrogance.

Strong, sexy, and smart women are not figures set in stone, immovable and impenetrable.  They are confident and satisfied in who they are, but they also have the capacity to grow.  No one’s perfect, but I admire people who can dig deep inside themselves and work at improving.  We can’t do that, however, without the right people coming alongside us, and we have to be willing to accept that kind of love and support.  I have been blessed enough to find such people, and it makes all the difference in the world.  🙂

Elemental Magic by Angela WallaceElemental Magic: Aileen Donovan wants nothing more than recognition as a scientist by her supernatural community.  What better way to do that than to solve a mystery involving a power-hungry alchemist, hallucinogenic coral, and a homicidal sea dragon?  The hard part will be working with Coast Guard officer Colin Benson—until the tides turn, and Aileen realizes that love and duty may not be mutually exclusive.

Dry Spell: Aileen Donovan is an elemental with magical control over water.  When she finds a mummified body at a scientists’ convention, she suspects supernatural foul play.  As more bodies turn up, Aileen’s amateur sleuthing not only pits her against a serial killer, but also a cunning vampire lord, and an elemental agent with ulterior motives.  Can she stop a murderer, or is she out of her supernatural league?

Angela Wallace, author  of the Elemental magic SeriesAngela Wallace loves gun-toting good boys and could have been a cop in another life except for the unfortunate condition of real blood making her queasy.  Good thing writing gun and sword fights isn’t a problem.  In her books you’ll find the power of love, magic, and redemption.
