Powers is a rebel of the written word who has tackled the monumental
task of recreating Atlantis. When she was 16 in Fort Collins,
Colorado, she began visiting the library in search of things she
couldn’t learn in school. Her goal was to re-define her religion. She
studied theology voraciously until she discovered the concept of
reincarnation though Hinduism. It was the answer to a lifelong
existential crisis that had plagued her for many sleepless nights.
The study of reincarnation led her to the channel Edgar Cayce. In his
many books, she found his past life readings of lifetimes spent in
Atlantis. This was the beginning of a lifelong quest to unravel the
secrets of this mystery. She has spent upwards of 30 years exploring
the labyrinth of ancient civilizations. Her decision to turn it all
into a high concept, visionary fantasy series stems from her study of
the esoteric depiction of Atlantis. With the other half of her
research rooted in the secular, it was the best way to illustrate
both aspects of this fascinating legend. Her work is the legacy of

Tell us about your writing – What genre do you prefer to write? What books, stories, other publications that you’ve written are your personal favorites? Anything new coming up?
I love writing contemporary romance stories. While my reading choices are much more varied I like telling a story that I can easily put someone in. I will always have a fondness for my Mile High Romance Series. The women in those stories hold many characteristics of some of my closest friends. But I am falling in love with the MacBride family. I am currently working on continuing the series with the third book which is Brandâ€™s story.
What about you as a person? What do you do to relax? Favorite movies or tv shows? Hobbies?
My â€œgo toâ€ is always reading. Always has been and I suspect always will be. While I enjoy walking, golfing and hanging with my family and friends I crave days where I can just read undisturbed.
I love, love love old movies. By that I mean those made in the 30â€™s, 40â€™s and 50â€™s. And as an odd counterpoint to that I am hooked on many of the Real Housewives shows. But the Hallmark channels, both the regular channel and the Murder and Mysteries channel are on a lot during the weekends, to my husbandâ€™s dismay.
What gets your creative juices going? Do you write to a music, and do you want to share your playlist?
I always have ideas for my stories but the getting down to writing is usually based on having the personal space to do it. When my life is crazy busy, writing tends to get pushed to the back but in those nice quiet days I can usually get my mojo going.
“All writers must have cats, especially if they write fantasy or speculative fiction.” Do you have a stand on this one? Any cute pictures of your kitty or other pet?
Sorry cat lovers, but I am not one. As a kid we always had dogs but my husband and I neverhad any. He wasnâ€™t much into having pets. However, I have a beautiful golden doodle granddog who was featured in my first book, Love in a Moment.
If you could have dinner with any of your characters, which ones would you choose? What food would you serve?
I would dine with any of the male leads in my books. The women in them I already relate to but those men Iâ€™d like to get a bit closer to that testosterone.
If you could travel anywhere, on earth or off, where would you go?
I am starting to do this. This year Iâ€™ve done a fabulous Alaskan cruise and at the time of writing this I am preparing for a trip to Ireland and Scotland.
Describe your dream writing spot.
Anywhere. Iâ€™ve written at a pool in Mexico, on a plane, at a coffee shop and in my kitchen. Itâ€™s not about the place but more about a frame of mind and time.
