About Pets in Space: Pauline Baird Jones, Susan Grant, Sabine Priestley and Michelle Howard

Welcome to the first in a series of weekend videos and video interviews from the twelve authors of Embrace the Romance: Pets in Space 2.

Today, our first three authors weigh in with how and why they got involved with this exciting collection of science fiction romance pets!

But first up, the author who brainstormed the idea talks about how Pets in Space came to be and why it supports

Our interviewer is Narelle Todd of Get My Book Out There.

Pauline Baird Jones
Home Did Pets in Space Come About?

Pauline doesn’t love reality so she writes books. She tends to wander among the genres, rampaging like Godzilla (they were born the same year) through her characters lives, mixing peril and humor into her romance, but she always delivers a happy ending. Visit her website: Pauline Baird Jones

Next, three of the authors talk about how they got involved with Embrace the Romance: Pets in Space 2.

Susan Grant
On Being Part of Embrace the Romance: Pets in Space 2

When NY Times/USA Today bestselling author and Air Force veteran Susan Grant isn’t driving an 18-wheeler (a 747 jumbo jet) she loves writing romantic, action-packed stories featuring gutsy woman and honorable men. Flying to exotic places and trying every kind of food imaginable helps Susan bring her sci-fi worlds alive for readers. She is a winner of the prestigious RITA award for her book Contact, an alien abduction sci-fi romance. Visit her website here: Susan Grant

Sabine Priestley
Why She's in the Anthology

Multi published author of Sci-Fi Rom and Urban Fantasy.

Sabine grew up consuming Science Fiction, Fantasy and Romance novels (there was a brief bodice ripper period, but we won’t go into that). She wanted to be an astronaut and travel the stars. She ended up an Electrical Engineer and Cultural Anthropologist. She’s a geek with heart.

Seriously disappointed we’ve yet to establish so much as a moon base, she’s encouraged by the recent developments by superstars such as Elon Musk, Sir Richard Branson and Jeff Bezos, among others. She’s a travel addict, beach-loving, stargazing disruptor. Her heroines are kickass and her stories action packed. Visit her website: Sabine Priestley

Michelle Howard
What Attracted Her to the Anthology?

Michelle Howard like many authors dreamed of writing since reading her first romance novel many years ago. She loves paranormal and contemporary romances and is a fan of the classic romances by Judith McNaught and Julie Garwood. I love to hear from fans so please reach out to me. If the mood hits you, leave a review. Website: Michelle Howard

  1. Thanks for featuring the interviews (even though it is painful to see myself on camera! hahaha)

  2. Well, I think you're a natural. I think everyone was. Your explanation about how the Pets in Space idea was born was fascinating.
