This week’s Author Profile is Larissa Ione. I chose her this week because I have recently become addicted to her books. I have read all of her Lords of the Deliverance series and plan to start her Demonica series. She has been recommended as a phenomenal story-teller and all you have to do is pick up one of her books to know that is true.
Larissa Ione is an Airforce Veteran who traded in Meteorology for writing. She like many other writers has been a writer/reader since she was able to read and write. But, her penchant for subjects not common place for 12 year olds made her stand out. She grew up loving Stephen King and Jack London. That being said as she got older her tastes evolved and she went from fantasy to historical fiction to historical romance. As she exhausted each of these genres she developed her love for passion and romance. It was here that she started focusing her writing on romance and joined the RWA and soon began getting some of her pieces published. Her first sale came in 2006 and she has been going strong ever since. Ms. Ione currently lives in Wisconsin with her husband, son, a cat named Vegas, and her very own hellhound, a King Shepherd named Hexe.
I have really been drawn in by Ms. Ione’s writing. Her stories are always action packed and full of romance. Not all writers can be successful at this blend. You can tell within her writing the many different genres she has liked her in past. She brings all of her past and present interests in to tell a story that is both unique and well written. An excellent example of Ms. Ione’s stellar writing abilities is her new book, Lethal Rider. I would recommend any of Ms. Ione’s Lord of Deliverance books and I know I have her Demonica series, starting with Pleasure Unbound, on my TBR list.
