Interview with Author Jessica Scott and Giveaway

USA Today bestselling author Jessica Scott is a career army officer; mother of two daughters, three cats and three dogs; wife to a career NCO and wrangler of all things stuffed and fluffy. She is a terrible cook and even worse housekeeper, but she's a pretty good shot with her assigned weapon and someone liked some of the stuff she wrote. Somehow, her children are pretty well-adjusted and her husband still loves her, despite burned water and a messy house.

She's written for the New York Times At War Blog, PBS Point of View: Regarding War Blog, and Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America. She deployed to Iraq in 2009 as part of Operation Iraqi Freedom/New Dawn and has served as a company commander at Fort Hood, Texas.

She's pursuing a PhD in Sociology in her spare time and most recently, she's been featured as one ofEsquire Magazine's Americans of the Year for 2012.

She plays by the rules and he can’t wait to break them but to save a friend, they’ll both have to learn to bend them.

What types of scenes are your most favorite to write?
This might be a little weird but I love writing the black moment when it all just wrenches out of you, you know?

If you could have dinner with any three authors (alive or dead), who would you choose and why?
Anne McCaffrey, Stephen King and Immanuel Kant

What are you favorite types of stories to read?
Anything that makes me question the way I see things. I loved loved loved the Hunger Games.

Last question, are you working on anything right now?
Other than my dissertation, I’m working on the next Coming Home bookJ :)

What’s your favorite comfort read?

She plays by the rules . . .

Captain Ben Teague is many things: a tough soldier, a loyal friend, and a bona fide smart-ass. He doesn't have much tolerance for BS, which is why he's mad as hell when a trusted colleague and mentor is brought up on charges that can't possibly be true. He's even more frustrated with by-the-book lawyer Major Olivia Hale. But there's something simmering beneath her icy reserve-and Ben just can't resist turning up the heat . . .

. . . and he's determined to break them

The only thing riskier than mixing business with pleasure is enjoying it . . . and Olivia can't resist locking horns-and lips-with Ben. He's got more compassion in his little finger than any commander she's ever met, a fact that makes him a better leader than he realizes. But when the case that brought them together awakens demons from Olivia's past, she will have to choose between following orders-or her heart . . .

As to the Rafflecopter question, I've not yet read any of the Coming Home series so do not have a fave hero(ine).
