I am so excited to interview the incredibly talented authors of A Touch of Darkness, Tina Moss and Yelena Casale!

Tina Moss is a writer of urban fantasy, paranormal romance, and romantic suspense. She lives in NYC with a supportive husband and alpha corgi, though both males hog the bed and refuse to share the covers. When not writing, she enjoys reading, watching cheesy horror flicks, traveling, and karate. As a 5'1" Shotokan black belt, she firmly believes that fierce things come in small packages.

Yelena Casale was born in Kiev, Ukraine and came to New York when she was 13, which gave her a great perspective into two very different cultures. Being very curious and inquisitive, she's always been an avid reader with a wide range of literary interests. Writing has been Yelena's passion since she first learned to write, and it only grew over time. Yelena is especially fond of reading and writing urban fantasy and paranormal romance. The world of vampires, shifters, angels and demons is a wonderful way to escape the mundane and lets her imagination run wild.

Yelena has two degrees from New York University, and has spent over a decade learning from New York City's diverse atmosphere.

Martial Arts has always been Yelena's other love through the years. She has a second degree black belt in Shotokan Karate (a traditional Japanese karate style) and helps teach at her husband’s dojo. In Yelena's books, you will see many influences from martial arts,  not only in the fight scenes, but in the philosophies and motives of the characters throughout the stories.
