Today I'm pleased to welcome author Patricia Leever to the blog as part of the promotional tour for her adult urban fantasy/paranormal romance hybrid, Divinity (Divinity releases TODAY from Omnific Publishing). She's here to share with us what she loves most about strong heroines (yeah!) and how she came by her appreciation for women who aren't afraid to be a little badass. Welcome to Supernatural Snark Patricia!
Greetings my super amazing love monkeys! Are you enjoying this blog tour so far? I sure as heck am! I love going to new places and making new friends like Jenny over here at Supernatural Snark! Thank you so much for having me over Jenny!
Okie dokie, anyone out there that knows me, knows that I love, LOVE, my heroines to kick some serious ass! And to be perfectly honest with you I had no idea why. I mean, not only do I love them in books that I read and television shows/movies that I watch, it is imperative that the heroines I create for my own pieces are bad-ass, take-no-crap, tough chicks with a side of girlie. It wasn’t until recently when I ran across a photo someone posted on Facebook of Wonder Woman, that I knew where it all began for me.
Yep, it all started with Wonder Woman. I was born in 1971 and being a child of the 70s and 80s I can clearly recall my love for things that had strong women in them, the Wonder Woman television show for one. I remember watching Linda Carter catch the bad guys and even in the Saturday morning cartoons, Wonder Woman was my homegirl. Then of course there was Erin Gray who played Wilma Deering on Buck Rogers and we can’t forget Lindsey Wagner as the Bionic Woman and Sigourney Weaver as Ripley in the Alien series and so many more I can’t even begin to name them all!
These women made such an impression on my young mind. I loved that these women didn’t wait for the man to leap in and save the day, they took charge, they grabbed a gun or a golden lasso and saved themselves! I think that’s why the female leads in my books are strong, capable women that aren’t afraid to speak their minds and kick some ass!
Well, I’d like to thank Jenny again for letting me occupy her blog for a second! Take care my monkeys and I’ll see you at the next stop!
Until next time,
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by Patricia! More information on Patricia and her books can be found here:

DIVINITYThey’re everywhere, hiding in plain sight. Chances are, you’ve interacted with one or two of them in your lifetime without even realizing it...
Demon hunter Evelyn Brighton saves unsuspecting humans from the malevolent creatures masquerading around them every day. Working under the Lebriga Corporation’s direction, she never fails to bring her A-game with her keen skill, fiercely independent spirit, and the best weapon in her arsenal: the Divinity blade.
Evelyn’s world is turned on its ear, however, when she is ordered to train cocky new recruit Daniel Summers. They both feel an instinctive pull drawing them to one another, the ancient spells tattooed into their skin illuminating whenever the two hunters come into contact. But with evil looming over the city of Los Angeles, Evelyn and Daniel’s mutual competitiveness and sense of duty to Lebriga and all humankind forces them to hold back their desires. Will their restraint be enough to keep them focused and save southern California, or will the dark forces prevail?
Set in modern-day Los Angeles, Divinity is an action-filled, fast-paced marriage of urban fantasy and paranormal romance. Edgy, witty, and sexy, it will bind you in its spell.
