Now, here’s Siren! 🙂
Siren Allen is a writer, a wife, a clinical laboratory scientist and the best auntie in the world. (The last one is her greatest accomplishment.) She loves writing gritty crime romances, supernatural love stories, and fun and sassy chick-lit. She believes her ability to create amazing characters and intriguing stories is a gift from God. And she enjoys sharing that gift with her readers. She has so much in store for you. So, hold on tight and enjoy the ride.
Besides writing, what else do you like to do?
I work full time as a Clinical Laboratory Scientist. I love my job. But when I’m not doing that or writing, I love hanging out with my nieces and nephews. They keep me up on what’s hip. LOL. I also enjoy binge watching Netflix shows. I am addicted to The Walking Dead, Game Of Thrones, Preacher, Power and Insecure.
What inspired you to become an author?
Being an avid reader. I love reading. I come from a family of readers. Reading opened the door for writing and I hope writing opens the door for future endeavors.
What was your first reaction when your debut novel was published?
I was at work when it finally hit Amazon. I think the whole hospital heard me scream. I called every floor of the hospital to let the nurses know my book was available. They were so supportive. I think all of them purchased my book that night. Needless to say, I was beyond ecstatic.
Where do you see yourself in the next 5 years?
I hope to be a full-time writer by then. Fingers crossed. I also would like to write for T.V.
What advice can you give to anyone who wants to become an author?
Never stop writing. No matter what anyone says. If this is your passion, give it your all. There will be bumps in the road: naysayers and bad reviews. Roll with it and keep doing what you do.

Once Upon A Time…
There lived a witch by the name of Celeste Dubois, who was tired of her sister witches disturbing her eternal slumber with their cries. Lately, they all called out to her with the same plea, ‘stop Rip Van Warren, the witch hunter’. Unable to ignore their cries, she lures Rip into her world, where she keeps him as her prisoner for twenty years. She had every intention of torturing him for those twenty years. But the heart wants what the heart wants.
For twenty years Rip Van Warren is held captive by a beautiful bayou witch. He should hate her. However, their time together has made him rethink his vendetta against witches. All of his life he thought magic was evil. Celeste has taught him that it’s a gift to be treasured, almost as much as he treasures her.
When an unexpected threat enters their lives, Celeste is forced to send him back to his own world in order to protect him. He awakens in the middle of the swamp, confused and dazed. His memories of the last twenty years are foggy. Yet, there’s one person he’ll never forget, the witch he left behind. He’s desperately seeking a way back to her. However, the witches of New Orleans aren’t willing to help a famous witch hunter.
Will the dark witch and the dark hunter have their happily ever after? Or will he return too late to save the witch he loves?
Excerpt from Into The Darkness:
Chained to the wall, Rip tilted his head back and opened his mouth. Drop after drop of water landed on his tongue. It wasn’t enough. But it was more than he’d had over the last two days. Or had it been three? Maybe six.
It was hard to tell time in this place that wasn’t supposed to exist. Where was his captor? Was she truly prepared to allow him to starve to death? After their last encounter, he’d thought he’d won her over, convinced her that he was no longer a threat to her and her sister witches.
She’d allowed him to touch her again, to caress her soft skin and bring her to an orgasm. Then she’d pushed him away and ordered him to his cell. He was growing tired of her mood swings. Either she was going to torture him or she was going to let him show her how good it could be between the two of them. She couldn’t have it both ways. She couldn’t spend her days avoiding him only to call him to her each night then push him away before morning.
Hell, who was he kidding? He was her prisoner. She could do whatever she wanted. She’d reminded him of that countless times. He was the fool for wanting more. He was a fool for thinking they could move past their differences.
He was done playing these games with her. Witches were evil. He was a witch hunter. It was his job to eradicate them from the face of the Earth. One sexy bayou witch wasn’t going to convince him otherwise.
As soon as he figured out a way to free himself, he was going to teach her a few rules about torture. Rule number one: never let your enemy know your weakness. He knew exactly what to do to make Celeste Dubois weak.
