Meet the Author and Interview With Character
Ever wonder what makes author Gemma Juliana tick?
I love gemstones and make jewelry as a hobby. I believe in the value of stones and crystals as healing energies and love to play with them. My favorite colors are green, gold and magenta. I’m a Capricorn and an astrologer. Sometimes I cast a chart for my characters to get more insight into what makes them tick. I enjoy cooking in the Fall and Winter, but come Spring and Summer I graze on salads and enjoy eating out more often. Dark, rich chocolate and a glass of Merlot make me very happy! So does uplifting music, color and the scent of aromatherapy. I see a plot in everything, everywhere!
Ever wonder where your favorite book characters are now?
Sheikh Adnan and his stunning wife Olympia (The Sheikh’s Spy) are taking a winter holiday away from their Kingdom of Zahiria and spending time at Winterthorne Castle in Ireland. Their siblings Rick and Yasmine (The Sheikh’s Crowning) accompany them for a true family event. Winterthorne Castle has long been in Adnan’s family, but even so the castle has secrets of its own. (Christmas Spirits).
What they’ve been doing since you read their story?
Adnan and Olympia settled into their new married life as the rulers of Zahiria. They return from their honeymoon to find Olympia is pregnant and expecting twins. Adnan is focused on putting the neighboring kingdom of Burindi under the control of an honorable leader and finds solutions closer to home than he anticipated.
What are their favorite colors or foods?
Adnan loves aquamarine blue, the color of Olympia’s eyes. His favorite meal is couscous with currents, nuts, berries and spices.
Olympia’s favorite color is pink. She is wild about white chocolate.
Yasmine loves the golden shades of the desert that surrounds them. Her favorite meal is lobster in a rich brandy sauce on a bed of white rice with salad.
Rick’s favorite color is red. It means action and he has always been an action-oriented man. His favorite foods are pizza, cheese burgers and French fries.
The location of their dream vacation?
Yasmine and Rick still need to take a honeymoon as soon as they can get away from the duties associated with their new life. They plan to cruise on board a luxury yacht, traveling the Mediterranean and creating their itinerary as they go, one stop at a time.
The number one item on their bucket lists?
Adnan: To find the source of power within the Golden Triangle (Map of the Golden Triangle).
Olympia: To sky dive above the Zahirian desert.
