I had the good fortune to ask Barbara a couple of questions about her recent release!

Why did you want to write this book, specifically?
My characters usually act within the law. I was intrigued by the idea of a vigilante justice thriller, and how I would sell that character and her actions to my readers.

What do you like best about it?
The characters. and especially the exchanges the main character has with the women in her life, be it friends, the love interest or the antagonist.

Can you tell the readers something about Killer Instinct that they might not know just from reading the book?
The story is set around Christmas. I find it tough to write dedicated holiday stories (especially since those are often romance). Going against conventions and throwing in some bad people made it easier…

In ten words or less, tell us why we should buy this book?
Fast-paced thriller with a lesbian protagonist and many twists!
