Interview & #Giveaway: Visions of Fire and Ice by Teresa D' Amario



Visions of Fire and Ice (A Petiri Book) by Teresa D’ Amario

Interview with Teresa:

What was the spark or initial idea that started your book?

Probably the initial spark dates back when I was 8 years old, and I inherited a necklace from my great grandmother. It was a fake egyptian medallion. It sparked an interest that has continued to this day. Enough so that in the military I even volunteered to go to Egypt, and it is always in my head.

What was your favorite part of writing this book?

Probably the belly dance scene. In fact, I enjoyed it so much that I actually gave a belly dance party at the Authors After Dark Conference.

What is your favorite line from your book?

"Dance for me"

What movie or television show would you say is most like your book in tone, topic, and/or characters?

The closest would probably be Stargate with a hint of The Mummy, but it also has the family magic, Like the Drake Sisters.

If your book was made into a movie and you got to design the movie poster, what would the tagline say?

I'm terrible at tag lines, let me see.

Visions of Fire & Ice, Dream, and you shalt know the gods

I don't know, I'm just awful at these. LOL.


That's a pretty good tagline. You're better at them than you think.

Trapped on a planet not their own, the Petiri spend their lives hiding the natural gifts that set them apart from the world. They live long and unfulfilled lives, unable to find their soul mates on this backward planet known as Earth. That is until the night Ramose comes face to face with Tamara, a woman whose gifts rival his own. Determined to find why this human is in possession of an ancient magical Petiri relic, he arranges a meeting.

But Tamara, embittered from past events, is wary despite lifelong dreams of Ramose and a sure
knowledge he is her soul mate. Before long the couple find themselves ensnared in a battle that has raged for millennia in Egypt's desert. Set, Egyptian God of Chaos, is determined to take his just due: the throne of Osiris.

The only way to stop him is for Ramose to put his trust in Tamara, but, first, he must gain the same from her. The ensuing sensual relationship is filled with romance, lust and love. Their relationship is tested by an unnatural evil. Will her powers over fire, combined with his ice be enough to win the day? Or will the ancient gods and goddesses of Egypt destroy more than just their love?

Author Info

Born in Atlanta, the daughter of an Army Soldier during the early stages of the Viet Nam war, I spent my childhood traveling from state to state, finally ending up overseas in Germany where I graduated high school six months early.

My writing career however began as a young Airman in the Air Force, writing monthly articles for the weekly base paper. The articles ranged from climatological data to full center fold articles on the destructive forces of hurricanes. As I increased in rank, my writing changed to more technological instruction, including such works as WSR-88D Doppler Radar Data Interpretation Guide for North Carolina Stations, and Station Operating Procedures.

But my early writing wasn’t limited only to the technological side. I’ve written multiple dog training and behavior articles for canine websites such as Sonora Canine Freestyle, and also the Ask Blackjack column, a fun training column in the voice of my labrador retriever, then a young pup.

My first book, SheWolf, won 2nd place for Best First book in RWA’s PFF&P Prism awards.

I’m married to a wonderful man named Doug, who is also retired Air Force. We live in North Carolina with our two dogs.
