Character Interview with Reyna Blair from An Unholy Alliance
Hello Reyna! It's such a special treat to have you here as a guest. Thank you for this chance to find out more about you! Tell us about your family.
I loved my mother and father so much. After adopting me, I knew nothing but love until about 15 then I could sense tenseness between my parents. Mom started taking me to church. Dad wasn’t keen on the idea. None of that mattered after they were murdered when I was 17 during a home burglary. It didn’t make sense until I later learned I was Nephilim with a strand of rare DNA that restored the powers of the ancients. Talk about something screwing with your mind! And then my maternal grandfather pops in to say he had to order the death of my mother because she intended to put me in hiding with a Catholic priest. It’s no wonder I’m weird.
What was the scariest moment of your life?
Realizing I would have to kill myself and my unborn child to save mankind. Taking a step off that cliff was killer, pardon the pun. Thank goodness I have someone looking out for me.
What are your favorite TV shows?
Don’t laugh. “Lassie”. I loved that dog. I think she was smarter than most people. When someone threatened Timmy, she went into full Mama Bear mode. Kinda like me. J
What are you passionate about these days?
These days . . . wow, my family. And making sure the Nephilim stay away from my baby.
Who should play you in a film?
Some chick who is kick-ass cool. Tough - but soft inside. I’d have to go with Jennifer Lawrence.
Morning Person? Or Night Person? How do you know?
Night person. The nightmares used to keep me up. Now it’s the baby. I just can’t win.
Is there a piece of advice that you have received that has really stuck with you? If so, what was it?
Yeah. A friend once told me “Love is the most powerful weapon in the world”. I believe him. When I opened my heart to love, giving unconditionally, I realized that a lot of it boomeranged back to me. I’m truly blessed . . . and that’s saying a lot for someone who was pretty sure she had a fast track ticket to Hell.

What would you do if the future of mankind depended on whether you lived or died?
Reyna Blair has learned two things from life – she can tolerate a lot of pain and wounds aren’t always visible. After a stint in the army, she’s ready to drop off the grid and heal. A job as Peace Officer in the small community of Purgatory, Texas sounds like the perfect solution – until the town is rocked by a gruesome murder.
When sexy Texas Ranger, Ty Carter, steps in to help with the investigation, Reyna is both thrilled and annoyed. He’s nice to look at and a definite boost to her sagging ego, but his aggressive ambition might push her right out of a job. To make matters worse, she’s being stalked by a mysterious stranger with a sword that can burst into flames on command.
Reyna’s problems are only beginning. The stranger is an angel of God . . . an Enforcer . . . sent to eliminate a Nephilim woman prophesized as giving birth to the Antichrist. Realizing she’s the target, Reyna must flee or be killed. Along the way, she discovers dark secrets which alter her world forever, challenge her faith, and force a choice between life and death.

About the Author:
I’m an adventurer – more by destiny than design. I’ve explored the back roads and highways of 35 states, resided in eight, and traveled through parts of Mexico, Canada and the Bahamas. My journeys have provided interesting tidbits which I’ve managed to weave into scenes for some of my books.
When I’m not in front of my computer, you might find me perched atop a rock at the back of a box canyon, crouched low in the middle of a dry creek bed with camera aimed at a majestic Elk, or perhaps hanging onto a skiff after a whale has breached next to me. At other times, I’ll be Geocaching with grandsons or attempting a new project inspired by something I’ve discovered on Pinterest.
Not all wanderers are lost. Some of us prefer to throw away the map and meander through life on the road less traveled.
I physically reside in North Carolina with my husband, Golden Retriever and two rescue cats. My soul resides in Arizona.
