Publication date: September 19th 2017
Genres: New Adult, Paranormal, Romance
I want vengeance so badly that I can almost taste it. It’s all I’ve ever wanted. So, I did what any privileged, adopted boarding school girl would do. I slapped on a secret identity and became an internationally renowned thief, known as The Fox. Nobody knows me. Nobody can catch me.
Or so I thought…
It turns out; I have what they want. Special abilities. And trust me, these abilities are coveted–and dangerous. Now, I don’t know who to trust or where to go. Peril lurks on every corner as I try to uncover my past and origin. Teaming up with unlikely allies may be my only chance at survival or my biggest mistake. Only time will tell.
I’m Kit Davenport and this is only the beginning.

How to write strong female lead characters
When writing a strong female lead, I always try to keep a few key (simple) points in the front of
my mind.
That she be strong of character, rather than (or as well as) physically. She needs to know her
own mind, and not be afraid to follow through, whether she's right or not.
That she has her own life, background, hobbies, friends etc, because a strong woman can stand
on her own two feet.
That her story and plot be independent of romance, because so often in movies (in particular)
the female has no further purpose to the story aside from being a love interest.
But also, that she’s human. She needs flaws and vices and bad habits just like any other
human. In the case of Kit, she swears a lot, she's headstrong, stubborn, quick to shift blame and
crazy addicted to coffee.
Your opinion on revenge (positives, negatives, etc)
Revenge tends to be a popular theme for badass heroines, because for the most part they don't
tend to be the forgive and forget kind of chicks. Which I'm all for, given the revenge they seek is
deserved and for the greater good. A heroine who feels the need to follow the "eye for an eye"
situation is not always going to be a better or stronger person than the antagonist, but she also
can't be a pushover. So, that being said, it's a super fine line! Justice is admirable in a heroine,

not so much revenge.

Author Bio: Tate James was born and raised in the Land of the Long White Cloud (New Zealand) but now lives in Australia with her husband, baby and furbaby.

She is a lover of books, red wine, cats and coffee and is not a morning person. She is a bit too sarcastic and swears too much for polite society and definitely tells too many dirty jokes.
