As an author, I know that characters often take on lives of their own. But what would you do if you received a phone call from someone you thought only existed in the pages of your book?
That is exactly what happened to me, Marissa Honeycutt, author of The Life of Anna.
Imagine my complete shock when I was called upon to perform an extraordinary and revolting task: travel to Russia to speak to one hailed by many as their all-time favorite villain. No one begins life as an evil son of a…well, you know, including Devin. Believe it or not, there was a time when our villain was a young man in love.
So what happened? Join me as I delve deep into the mind of Devin Andersen, to find out how the man became the monster.

“If Stephen King wrote erotica…,”
…is how Marissa describes her books when asked. She doesn’t seek to write any particular genre, style, or length, only following her gut instincts and the lead of her characters. The Life of Anna crosses many genre lines including erotica, suspense, psychological thriller, horror, politcal conspiracy, paranormal, and romance.
Marissa’s story of Anna began with a dream about being kidnapped with Adam Savage from Mythbusters (Yes, really). Over the next year and a half, it morphed into the story that is now known as “The Life of Anna.” She has several other stories in progress, one of which is based on her kidnapped dream called Distorted Hope.
Marissa stays busy homeschooling her two elementary age sons, running her household, fending off two adorable kittens, and interacting with her readers on social media. She is a self-proclaimed geek and has a deep love for all things Doctor Who. She is also actively pursuing a more natural lifestyle, which includes essential oils, natural cleaning products, and whole, organic foods. Marissa’s addictions include the aformentioned Doctor Who, the Science and History Channels, anything chocolate mint, vintage books, cute kitty cats and laughter.
