What's the title?
Tea with the Demon**
What's the genre?
Paranormal Erotica – it’s very explicit and steamy, all consensual but very graphic. You may need to take a cold shower, or be ready for action....
What's the setting?
Tea with the Demon is set in a small, fictional, town in the heart of England (UK). Wingate is quiet and Dez thinks nothing ever happens.
What's the names of your leading characters?
Dez – Half demon and prone to boredom. It’s not his full name but everyone knows him as Dez. For now anyway.
Angel – Actually, she’s Evangeline but everyone knows her as Angel.
There’s also Edward the librarian – no, not that library, the secret library hidden underneath the town library – and Helen and Derek, and Jason.... mustn’t forget Jason. It’s all a bit complicated and spans several lifetimes. But Dez and Angel are the key players.
What are 3 things you want to share about each of the characters?
Dez and Angel aren’t fully human, and often not fully clothed either.
There’s a reason Helen and Jason are drawn to Dez and Angel, and why Derek takes an instant suspicious dislike to Dez – but you’ll have to read the book to find out.
Dez’s father was a minor demon, his mother a human sacrificial victim who survived. Angel’s not saying who her parents were but rumour has it that one was an angel.
What can you tell us about the story in 3-5 sentences?
If you met Dez, you’d not remember him after a few moments. That’s part of his power. He’s walked the streets of Wingate for centuries but no-one knows him. Apart from Angel, and Edward. Meant to be feared and worshipped, Dez has been a naughty boy.
Condemned to walk alone and unfulfilled for eternity, Dez is bored.
Until he meets Helen Sharpe. Despite his best efforts Helen remembers him, and is unaffected by him.

Footnote ** A few words from Isobel herself...
Let me introduce you to my debut full length novel, Tea with the Demon. There are secrets behind this book, the name and the story, a history that if I told you, I’d have to lock you up for a very long time.
A word of warning though, do not buy this book unless you like your characters undressed and slicked with sweat; and the action graphic. You may need a cold shower in order to finish the book.
Interesting miscellany.... Tea with the Demon is referenced as a fictional work in another author’s work. So is the, as yet unwritten, sequel: The Demon’s Tree. As a reciprocal gesture, a writer is referred to in Tea with the Demon – but the book mentioned is one they haven’t written – yet.
I’ve been fascinated with the intellectual concept of reincarnation for years and wanted to explore the notion of instant attraction based on previous shared lives, and instant enmity. Why is it that we sometimes form an instant opinion of someone? Is it that we’ve known them before? Dez and Angel grew from that exploration process, and I’m very glad they did.
Well, there you have it. A one minute synopsis, links to buy and a warning about Isobel's new book.
Until- next time,
