Takeover Tuesday: Author Alexandrea Weis

Alexandrea Weis is an advanced practice registered nurse who was born and raised in New Orleans. Having been brought up in the motion picture industry, she learned to tell stories from a different perspective and began writing at the age of eight.
Infusing the rich tapestry of her hometown into her award-winning novels, she believes that creating vivid characters makes a story moving and memorable. A permitted/certified wildlife rehabber with the Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries, Weis rescues orphaned and injured wildlife. She lives with her husband and pets in New Orleans.

Can you share a little of your current work with us?
My new release is Rival Seduction., Book 6 in the Cover to Covers Series.  Just out on 9/14. An erotic romance set in the world of show jumping about two rivals who find they have a strong attraction outside of the show ring.
Here is the blurb: Strong willed, independent, and competitive as hell, Heather Phillips isn’t going to let anyone beat her in the show ring … that is until Grant Crowley started taking away her blue ribbons. A wealthy cattle rancher with an attitude and taste for beautiful women, Grant is the only person who ever made Heather feel second best. Yet she is determined to beat him, no matter the cost. When an accident brings the two rivals together, their heated dislike has to be put on hold. Outside of the show ring, they slowly get to know each other. But what happens when these passionate competitors discover a different kind of spark? Will Heather use what she learns about Grant to take advantage of him in the ring, so she can be number one? 
Winning can mean everything until something sexier comes along.

Do you have any advice for other writers?
Just keep writing. You have to write to find your voice. And once you have found it, write even more.

Do you have any writing rituals or certain things you do to aid your writing process?
I chew a lot of gum, that’s about it. 

Favorite snack and thing to drink while you write?
Too busy writing to be bothered with that. Gum is easier, keeps my hand  free to type.
