This interview is unique in that it is not only from Cameron Skye, but from the character Jess in Fallen Angel: A Mafia Romance. Since the book is based off of events of Cameron’s life, they too would be her answers if she were interviewed as well.
What is your idea of perfect happiness?
Getting to the point where I can accept the truth there is no perfect happiness. To finally love and accept myself and my past mistakes. To no longer to be judged by them or have them haunt me. To know that happiness is found in being totally present and at peace in this moment.
What is your greatest fear?
My greatest fear is what I believe to be anyone’s. The fear of spending my life alone with no one to love and to love me in return. A life without love just seems very lonely.
What or who is the greatest love of your life?
The greatest love of my life will always be the person behind the character of Nick Roman. He holds my soul in a way no other man ever will do so. Even after all these years, he can still take my breath away just with a smile.
What is the quality you most like in a man?
Loyalty, for sure.
On what occasion do you lie?
Whenever the occasion calls for it. I’ve lied many, many times to protect the people I love, to include Nick. When asked if I was sorry for those lies, I can honestly say I’m not sorry and never will be. You do what you have to do, at the time, ya know. Like I said, loyalty goes a long way with me.
When and where were you happiest?
While it had to be one of the wildest times of my life, I have to say I was the happiest when I lived in New York and was dancing at the club, we called Takers. Dancing, in any form, has always been an escape for me. I also say this time period because it’s when I met “Nick” and fell in love with him. During that time there wasn’t many, many history books between us and hurt didn’t exist.
What is your current state of mind?
What it always has been, chaos. I’m always worrying about the next thing coming and how I’m going to have to hustle once I’m there.
Who are your favorite writers?
I have several and the list is rather eclectic.
Alisa Anderson, of course.
Who is your hero of fiction?
Scarlett O’Hara from Gone With the Wind. I find her character to be human and flawed. She didn’t conform to society’s standards. She did what she had to do to survive, not caring if others agreed with her decisions. She reminds me of myself, a lot.
Tell us a little bit about your release Fallen Angel: A Mafia Romance?
I believe Alisa defined the story the best in one of her interviews. She said the story is about a very flawed, very damaged young woman who doesn’t quite realize just how much she’s in over her head, until it’s almost too late. She has knack for getting involved with all the wrong men, and doesn’t know how to break away. You’ll find yourself rooting for this girl half of the time because of her spirit, because she’s been kicked around, beaten down, but never has given up. The other half of the time you just want to wring her neck and make her do right. It’s a story about the wrong and right type of love.
Can you tell us a little about your upcoming works?
Naturally working on the conclusion of Fallen Angel: A Mafia Romance Series. Alisa and I are also working on the next book in the Roman Crime Family Series. It’s a Mafia BDSM book tentatively called, Marked. The book features Nick Roman’s younger brother, Gabriele. It’s pretty damn hot in my opinion, lol.

Alisa Anderson & Cameron Skye
“Fallen Angel is a dark, tasty appetizer with echoes of “The Sopranos.” It’s like picking up a Lindt truffle on your way out of the store. There’s just enough to wake up your taste buds, or in this case, other parts due South.” – Margo’s Red Light District
“Gritty, sexy and with a strong but vulnerable female lead. Fallen Angel is a surprisingly good read.” – Ingrid Hall
“Is Jess going to get sucked into a world with Nick that will destroy her or will she bring Nick to the other side and they find happy ever after? I will be grabbing the next book soon. I need to know more about this story and what the future holds.” – TBird, Crystals Many Reviews
“Fallen Angel is a quick and sexy read. I hope to get the chance to read the next installment. I want to know more about Nick and the dangerous games he’s playing.” – Angela, Crystals Many Reviews.

well…alisa did stuff and is still doing stuff. only now she has two boys crazy enuff to want her as their mommy. hey, at least she tried to warn them, so her job is done. she doesn’t like to capitalize, partially because she likes how lower case letters look visually, but mostly out of laziness. please don’t judge. it could be you. and she would say, hey. you’re alright, buddy. you’re ok in my book. now c’mere for a hug. the hug might be pushing it. air kiss? you are strangers, after all, with only a mutual love of poor grammar.
she lives for a world full of controllable anatomically correct, android men programmed to meet her specific feminine needs (wink, wink, nudge, nudge with a big waggle of the eyebrows). who look like the rock. and ian somerhalder. and idris elba. and that’s it she promises. variety. gotta have variety, right?
but alas…apparently that exists only in johanna lindsey’s genius mind. so until then, she enjoys her incredibly warped sense of humor. she reads tons of erotica and romantic, drippy goo that makes her heart go pitter patter. then she thought, hey. what, she said to herself. (softly, of course, so no one finds out she is indeed, 2 nuts short of a fruitcake) maybe you should write this stuff too. maybe someone will like it and maybe buy it. so she said, huh, you think? then she said, well…yeah, i wouldn’t have suggested it…(inserts sarcastic tone) and then she was like lose the attitude, ok? then she was all, would you just shut up and write, already? sheesh! and she did. :)
When Cameron is not in the lab working toward a Ph.D., in Neuropsychopharmacology, which in laymen’s terms is basically finding the effects drugs have on mood and behavior, she is writing stories, creating vivid, intense characters you will never forget.
She believes while life can take you down every path but the right one, eventually everyone will find their happily ever after.
