Hey everyone! I'm excited to be a part of the Flight book tour! Flight is such an awesome read and i'm happy to present to you an interview with the author, Alyssa Rose Ivy.
Alyssa Rose Ivy lives in North Carolina with her husband and two young children. Although raised in the New York area, she fell in love with the South after moving to New Orleans for college. After years as a perpetual student, she turned back to her creative side and decided to write.
1. Hi Alyssa! What inspired you to write Flight?
Hi Katie, thanks for having me!
I went to college in New Orleans, and there is just something about that city that makes you believe that the supernatural is possible. I wanted to write a paranormal romance, and the idea took off naturally from there.
2. What did you enjoy most about creating a supernatural romance?
I loved creating a completely new supernatural creature. I’m a big fan of shifters in general, but I loved writing about a new one. I also think it’s a lot of fun to show what happens when everyday people get involved in a supernatural world.
3. The characters in Flight are awesome! Do you base any of your characters on people you know in real life?
I think most of my characters have a little bit of people I know in them, but at least in Flight, they aren’t based on anyone in particular. However, some of the experiences the characters have come from real life.
4. Any hints as to what’s in store for Allie and Levi next?
In book two, Focus, Allie settles into life as a college student in New Orleans and has to figure out where Levi fits into her life. She gets pulled further into The Society, and Levi strives to find a way to make things right. There’s definitely tons of romance and action in store for the pair.
5. If you could spend the day with one of your characters, who would it be and how would you spend the day?
Only one? Ohh, that’s tough. Well if I could only pick one from Flight it would have to be Owen. He doesn’t get much of a voice in Flight, but I really want to get his take on the whole Allie-Levi situation. I also want to know what it was like growing up with Hailey as a sister. I bet he’d be able to show me some pretty cool places in New Orleans.
6. What do you love most about being an author?
I love getting to interact with so many amazing authors, bloggers and readers. It’s also unbelievably cool to get the opportunity to share my stories with people.
7. What are you currently working on?
I’m getting ready to release a New Adult contemporary romance called Derailed. I’m currently working on a companion novel for it called Veer.
Thanks for stopping by Alyssa, I can't wait for Focus!

Sometimes you just have to take flight.
A summer in New Orleans is exactly what Allie needs before starting college. Accepting her dad’s invitation to work at his hotel offers an escape from her ex-boyfriend and the chance to spend the summer with her best friend. Meeting a guy is the last thing on her mind—until she sees Levi.
Unable to resist the infuriating yet alluring Levi, Allie finds herself at the center of a supernatural society and forced to decide between following the path she has always trusted or saving a city that might just save her.
