Today I have the honor of hosting a lovely friend and fellow Chesapeake Romance Writer, the fabulous Kristine Overbrook!!!! *applause* Her newest release Once Upon A Couch is out today! I must say that I had the privilege of beta reading this book last year. It's such a unique concept! A psychiatrist to the supernatural...the stuff of awesome!
Now, the story behind the story...check it out!
Kristine Overbrook started writing in earnest seven years ago. One night, after a long day at work she imagined a story about a woman bitten by a werewolf. A dear friend, who was a writer herself, wouldn’t let Kristine ignore the tale. She wrote and revised it and submitted it to editors and publishers.
After a while another story came to mind, and she wrote it. Then a third and she wrote that as well.
During all of that writing she realized two things. First, love must enter into the equation and the couple must live happily ever after. Second, paranormal characters are far more interesting than “normal” humans.
It took seven years and several revisions for Kristine to get her first novel published. On July 23, 2012 Creatures of the Moon, a paranormal romantic suspense, was released by Crimson Romance, the romance imprint of F+W Media, Inc.
Today, Kristine celebrates the release of her second novel also from Crimson Romance. Once Upon a Couch is a light paranormal romance. It is the first book of the Paranormal Practice Series.

Alex Holmes is the sheriff of Villa Hollow. His town, his world, is normally rather quiet, until Dr. Lester moves in. Soon, he can’t go an hour without the tendrils of her thoughts intruding in his mind. He even has to perform meditative exercise to keep from knowing when she’s hungry. Added to that, the Coalition has taken her in their sights. He has every reason to keep his distance, but will listen to none of them.
Dr. Josephine Lester moves into the town of Villa Hollow to open her psychiatric practice. In her line of work, she expects odd. She expects disturbed. What she doesn’t expect is a sleepwalking vampire, a haunted house, or a coalition of people working against the paranormal element to try to run her out of town.
If she leaves, where does the vegetarian werewolf go when she is distraught over eating meat? To whom does the poor housewife seeing little green men turn?
If she stays, will the handsome telepathic sheriff help her keep her sanity?
