Isabo: Being a writer was the only way I could get all the stories in my head out!
Ester: I know what you mean.
Isabo: I can’t draw or sing to save my life, and while I can act a little, writing came easier. I don’t know where it came from, I just know it felt like the right way to tell my stories. And if I didn’t get those stories out, I’d probably have been committed by now 🙂
Ester: How long have you been writing professionally?
Isabo: This May (2009) I have been writing professionally for ten years. In fact, my first published novel, THE PROMISE OF KIERNA’ RHOAN, was just re-released from Samhain Publishing on its ten year anniversary.
Ester: Congratulations on that milestone! What do you do for fun when you aren’t writing?
Isabo: Right now, I play with my son. He’s my first and he’s a great source of fun (as well as exhaustion, frustration and terror
Ester: I share that trait. Do you write full-time or part-time?
Ester: Where do you currently reside?
Ester: Tell us about your latest releases.

When Grace Newman is approached in the woods by a mysterious stranger who tells her she’s a missing faery named Grainne, she wonders if she’s gone insane. Her attraction to Diarmaid is impossible to resist. When she starts to know things about Grainne, she can’t help but wonder if some of his story is true.
Diarmaid has been waiting five hundred years to return the Lady of the Herd to Tir na Nog. When he meets Grace, he knows he has found the right woman. But he’s made mistakes before. Does he dare risk the sanity of the woman he loves to bring her home?
Together, they’ll have to face an old foe, the very man who drove the Lady of the Herd from Tir na Nog. And Grace will have to trust Diarmaid and believe in her heritage to harness her true powers before it is too late.
THE PROMISE OF KIERNA’ RHOAN (www.samhainpublishing.com)
Kira Farseaker led a sheltered, privileged life–until her discovery of a cruel secret plunged her into an underworld of danger. Now she vows to use her money and position to save an alien species, the Shifters, from government-sanctioned extermination.
A secret planet, a Farseaker legacy known as Kierna’ Rhoan, could offer at least some of the
evolving Shifters the sanctuary they need to survive. To get them there safely will be the most dangerous mission Kira has ever attempted–a task that isn’t made any easier by her attraction to the dark, hungry eyes of a suspected spy.
Officer David Cario’s assignment to a Shifter extermination squadron is just the break he needs to learn why his sister was executed. Earning the trust of his commander’s ex-wife, suspected terrorist Kira Farseaker, is easier said than done, especially when crossing into her world brings him face to face with truths he isn’t prepared to discover.
Swept up in a growing whirlpool of corruption and treachery, Kira and David find themselves locked in a struggle between duty and a growing passion that could destroy everything they’ve worked for. Or save both their lives.

Isabo: The first Monday of September, I’ll be doing a reading at Lady Jane’s Salon, a new reading series here in New York City. This takes place the first Monday of every month and raises proceeds for charity, so it’s a great event if you’re in the area. For more information, visit http://www/myspace.com/ladyjanessalon.
