Tell us, Lady Broch...
What is your ultimate goal?
To wed Lord Branin Llewlyn of Cloud Eyrie and have him on his knees before me.
What makes you so driven to accomplish this goal?
As the daughter of a holder, I am used to wealth, power, and if not respect, at least obedience from others. I lost all that when my husband, Hicca, was passed over as leader of his clan and hold. Now I sit huddled in a cold cave. Instead of servants, a measly handful of raiders are at my beck and call. I want what I had before, the starlton gowns, warm bed, and enough coins to buy whatever or whoever I want. The dragshi have the money and the power. And I will get them--by any means necessary. As to why I selected his mightiness Branin Llewlyn to help accomplish my goal. He spurned the offer of my bed. Now he will pay. No one rejects me.
If you could choose anyone from the literary world as your partner in crime, who would you choose and why?
Barbara Hambly. She is knowledgeable in the ways of magic and travelling between worlds. Both items that I can use to confuse my enemies, enrich my fortunes and get my revenge on the dragshi.

Here's more about Lady Broch and the fantasy novel, Dragon Destiny, Book One of the Dragshi Chronicles:
The awakening of his dragon soul twin, Llewlyn, brought Dragshi Lord Branin near-eternal life, but not happiness. As a dragshi, he can take on dragon form and know the freedom of flight, however, both are the last of their kind and have waited millennia for their mates. The firebrand raider, Lady Broch is more than willing to fulfill that position -- with or without Branin's willing cooperation.
When a faint thought impinged on Branin's mind, hope for an ending to eons of loneliness soared. Plagued by doubts because no signs of a dragon shifter's birth have been seen, Branin searches the world for the mysterious girl he only knows by the name, Anastasia.All that stands between happiness and a lifetime alone is destiny—and Broch.
