Please help me welcome today’s guest, Izzy Szyn with an interview and her latest release…
Please tell us a little about yourself, where are you from? Where do you live now? Family? Pets?
I’m from Detroit, live in Oklahoma City. My mom and brothers still live in Detroit and I have a sister and niece that lives here. I have dog named Misty that is Chihuahua/terrier mix.
Where did you get the idea for RESURRECTION OF ARTEMIS Why did you choose this genre (is it something you’ve written in before)?
I was in a chat one night with Candi Fox and Bobbi Romans and we talked about getting together and doing a boxed set together. We decided to do superheroes/villains. I’d never written one before, but I always had this germ of an idea for one.
Was there anything unusual, any anecdote about this book, the characters, title, process, etc, you’d like to share?
I work in a call center for iphone tech support, (not Apple) and one day our phones went crazy because there was a big outage in Texas and people were going crazy? So Artemis was born.
What is the most difficult thing about writing a book?
Finding time to write.
What was the most difficult thing about this one in particular?
Trying to find a superhero and villain name that hadn’t been used before.
Do you have another occupation, other than writer? If so, what is it and do you like it?
Yes. I work in a call center helping people who have problems with their phones. It’s okay, but want to write full time.
What do you dislike that most people wouldn’t understand?
Cheese. I like it on pizza and spaghetti, but hate grilled cheese, macaroni and cheese.
Do you collect anything?
I guess you can say flip flops, it’s my fav shoe, I think I have more of them then regular shoes.
What was your first job?
Working in a cafeteria in a Montgomery Wards. It lasted a month.
What’s the main thing that you could get rid of in your life that would give you more writing time?
If I could afford it, my job
What’s your favorite book of all time and why?
I think it has to be Sue Barton, Student Nurse. It’s a really old book, but I read it when I was ten. I had to do a book report for school and it’s the book that turned me into a bookaholic.
What’s your favorite childhood book?
Hmmm, Wizard of Oz? I would definitely redo it one day, but of course it would be hotter.
What do you want readers to come away with after they read Resurrection of Artemis?
I hope they want more, I’d write another if there was enough interest.
Would you rather have a bad review or no review?
I don’t mind a bad review as long as they say why they didn’t like the book. If they just put this book sucks and nothing else then I’d rather them not leave one.
What genre have you never written that you’d like to write?
Erotic suspense thriller
If you were stranded on a deserted island and you could have 3 (inanimate) objects, what would they be?
Pepsi, food and a bed
Have you written any other books that are not published?
Yeah, I’m currently working on three others. I can’t seem to write just one at a time.
Thank you, Izzy…it was nice getting to know you. I will have to say, I find it VERY odd that you dislike cheese. It’s one of my very favorite foods! 😀 I love that you wrote about a super hero. I started a series years ago that was sort of a mixture of super hero and paranormal romance. I’ll dig it out and finish it one of these days. Thanks again for visiting with me today!

Once known as the infamous hacker Artemis, Amy Wilson now works in a coffee shop. With only months until the end of her probation from working in the technological industry that she loves, Amy is determined to keep Artemis dead and buried.
When incidents similar to the ones Amy did start occurring all fingers start pointing in Artemis’ direction, and three people that want Artemis to come out of retirement.
Quail City’s super heroes Dark Master and Calypso aka as multi-billionaire Noah Adams and his assistant Vanessa London know Amy’s secret, and also know that she is being set up. Having spent months in a flirtmance with Amy, they are tired of waiting and want both her and Artemis in their bed.
Hinderer wants to hold technology hostage, but in order to do that he needs Artemis’ assistance, and he will use any methods necessary to gain her cooperation.

“People have been mentioning Artemis,” Calypso said. “You wouldn’t have heard anything?”
They knew, Amy thought. Somehow they knew. “No, Artemis isn’t here anymore. At least from what I heard.”
“Damn shame, too,” complained one of the customers in the shop. “Not the Artemis that is playing with the lights and stuff. But the Artemis who liked to help people with their problems.”
“Yeah, I think if someone is behind it, it’s someone pretending to be Artemis, or trying to shift the blame on her,” said another customer. “She may have done some things, but she’d never deliberately set out to get people hurt.”
Amy smiled at the person that made the comment. “I’ve been here all day. But it’s more than the traffic lights. Didn’t I hear that the other day the Financial District was shut down because the money showed at zero?”
“That is something that Artemis had fun with,” Dark Master commented. “Or had in the past.”
“I’m sure that whatever has been happening in Quail City has nothing to do with Artemis,” Amy replied.
“Hope for Artemis’ sake it’s true,” Calypso said. “Williams is ranting and raving in Commissioner James’ office asking for her to be arrested.”
Just bet he is, thought Amy. “Is there anything else I can get you?” Amy asked them. She saw that it was almost six and the last bus going towards her apartment would be there any minute.
“You in our bed,” Calypso said in her ear. “Your blue hair will look glorious on our pillows.” Then out loud stated, “That’s all for now.”
