Serena has a bright future etched in stone. Tristan has a dark past that haunts him. Together, they have a love that can never be. Sheltered, and unable to escape her bloodline, Serena St. Michael has spent the last two years training at the Royal Protector Academy. Struggling with a dark past, Tristan Gallagher’s current assignment is to protect a lifetime of secrets. One chance encounter will change everything. Serena must decide if she will follow her heart, forsaking all she’s ever known and risking a future worse than non-existence. Tristan will break every rule to save Serena, even if he can’t keep her. In their world of darkness, one love will ignite an ancient war. When pasts collide with the present, and secrets are revealed, will love be enough? Or will one lie destroy it all? When you’ve hidden behind a mask for so long, would you reveal yourself for love? Vernal, the first novel in The Royal Protector Academy series is a dangerously exciting and darkly romantic tale that will take your breath away.



Do you write every day, 5 days a week or as and when?

I write at least five days a week and sometimes more. It depends  on the day and how much the story nags, or the characters speak to me demanding to be heard.


Do you aim for a set amount of words/pages per day?

Yes, I have a word count goal for each day. Usually a slow day for me is about 2,000 words and on a good day, I’ve been known to write about 7,000. Though, that is unusual. My average is 3,500-4,000 per day.


Do you read much and if so who are your favourite authors?

Every chance I get! Right now, I love reading stories by: Kylie Scott, Jay Crownover, and Jeaniene Frost. That’s just some of the many authors I love.

If you could have been the original author of any book, what would it have been and why?

This is a great question. It’s not a book per se, but I would have loved to have written Paradise Lost by John Milton.


Have you ever had the feeling you were being watched?

Actually, I have. I just had this happen on a family vacation. I was at the hotel pool and this woman was staring at me--off and on all day.  I'm thinking, “great I have ketchup on my face.” The following night at dinner, the same woman was sitting across from us at the restaurant eyeballing me. Now I'm all, “what the heck is wrong with my hair?” Then while I was at the gate for our departing flight, the same lady walks up to me with her Kindle and says, "I'm so sorry to ask you, but are you Randi Cooley Wilson the author of The Revelation Series?" Now twenty people are staring at me and I'm blushing. I tell her I am. She said she's been reading and loving the series while on vacation with her family. 


If you were to write a book about yourself, what would you name it?

Rearview Mirror.


What is your favorite dessert?

This is tough, I’m not really a ‘sweets’ person. I think chocolate and coffee-flavored cheesecake. 


Tell us something nobody knows about you.

I hate the smell of Pantene shampoo.


Thanks so much for having me today!
