A family practice
physician and Vassar graduate, Sunny was finally pushed into picking up
her pen by the success of the rest of her family. Much to her
amazement, she found that, by golly, she actually could write a book.
And that it was much more fun than being a doctor. As an author, Sunny
has appeared on Geraldo at Large and CNBC. When she is not busy reading
and writing, Sunny is editing her husband’s books, New York Times
bestselling author Da Chen, and being a happy stage mom for her two
young children who have appeared as extras on Saturday Night Live,
Sesame Street, a Fuji commercial, and Adam Sandler’s upcoming movie,
Mona Lisa’s story
continues in January’s Over The Moon anthology, and Mona Lisa Blossoming
in February 07. For excerpts, please visit
MONA LISA AWAKENING
Berkley Trade -- September 2006
On the dark side of the
moon lies passion, hunger -- and danger...
time she was an orphan child, Mona Lisa knew she was different—but she never
knew how different until a man of otherworldly beauty arrived during her night
shift in the ER. Gryphon is hurting and hunted...and he attracts her as no man
ever has before. He is a Mončre, one of the children of the moon—and what's
more, so is she...
exiled from the moon, the men of the Mončre serve—and mate—with imperious
Queens, who can channel the rays of their far-off homeland. Gryphon believes
that Mona Lisa is a Queen—perhaps the first of Mixed Blood ever known. But her
introduction to the nighttime court of the Mončre, simmering with intrigue,
casual lust, and calculated cruelty, is far from smooth. The other Queens are
infuriated by her potential powers, and they are all menaced by a group of rogue
males who have broken away from the women's sway. Even as she battles threats
from within and without, Mona Lisa is determined to discover who she is, and to
explore the limits of her growing power—and her secret desires...
