<h4 style="text-align: center;"><strong>Meet today&rsquo;s guest, Carolyn Arnold.</strong></h4>

<p><strong>&nbsp;</strong>She is an international bestselling and award-winning author, as well as a speaker, teacher, and inspirational mentor. She has four continuing fiction series and has written nearly thirty books. Both her female detective and FBI profiler series have been praised by those in law enforcement as being accurate and entertaining, leading her to adopt the trademark, POLICE PROCEDURALS RESPECTED BY LAW ENFORCEMENT&trade;.</p>

<p style="text-align: justify;">Today, she answers a few questions for us and gives us insight into her Detective Madison Knight series and <em>Power Struggle</em>.</p>

<p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>What inspired you to write the Detective Madison Knight series?</strong></p>

<p style="text-align: justify;">Put simply, I wanted to see a kick-ass female protagonist in law enforcement. At the time I started writing Madison, women mostly played supporting roles to male leads. Not only did I want a female out front but I wanted her to speak her mind and not be afraid of doing whatever it took to pursue justice.</p>

<p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>What is unique about the Detective Madison Knight series?</strong></p>

<p style="text-align: justify;">This series has a broad cast of characters, starting with a strong female detective, a CSU team, a medical examiner, members of SWAT, the brass, and the city&rsquo;s mayor. That makes for a lot of potential conflict and character growth.</p>

<p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>What can readers expect from <em>Power Struggle</em>?</strong></p>

<p style="text-align: justify;">This is the darkest installment in the Detective Madison Knight series to date. Every reader can expect their heartrate to tick up along with their blood pressure! After all, this is a story about one Mafia hit man who&rsquo;s back for revenge and one detective who&rsquo;s not going down without a fight. Only one of them can survive.</p>

<p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>What are reviewers saying about <em>Power Struggle</em>?</strong></p>

<p style="text-align: justify;">Reviewers are loving it, and the quotes below are just a few snippets!</p>

<p style="text-align: justify;">&ldquo;A thrilling page-turner featuring a well-written, captivating, and logical plot along with realistic characters&hellip;&rdquo;<br /> <strong><em>&ndash;NY Literary Magazine</em></strong></p>

<p style="text-align: justify;">&ldquo;There is no denying this is yet another brilliant book from Carolyn&hellip;&rdquo;<br /> <strong><em>&ndash;Ebook Addict</em></strong></p>

<p style="text-align: justify;">&ldquo;I love the character Madison Knight. She is a great detective, and I think this series would make a great TV show.&rdquo;<br /> <strong><em>&ndash;Harps Romance Book Review</em></strong></p>

<p style="text-align: justify;">&ldquo;The premise is a good one with lots of excitement, credible suspects as bodies fall, and a cold-hearted villain.&rdquo;<br /> <strong><em>&ndash;Linda Strong Book Reviews</em></strong></p>

<p style="text-align: justify;">&ldquo;Arnold&rsquo;s work is definitely on par with the top writers in crime, and this book was no different.&rdquo;<br /> <strong><em>&ndash;Paperback Reviews</em></strong></p>

<p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>What was your inspiration for writing <em>Power Struggle</em>?</strong></p>

<p style="text-align: justify;">The conflict between the Russian Mafia and Detective Madison Knight goes back to the start of the series, and I thought it was time to bring some sort of resolution to that overarching plotline. Just <em>how</em> it is resolved is something you&rsquo;ll need to read the book to find out, though. No spoilers here!</p>

<p style="text-align: justify;">When I went to write <em>Power Struggle</em>, I knew it was going to be darker than the rest of the series. With that said, I didn&rsquo;t go too deep into the gory side of things; I kept it mostly psychological. And don&rsquo;t worry if you haven&rsquo;t read the previous books in the series&mdash;this one can stand alone.</p>

<p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>How do you conduct your research?</strong></p>

<p style="text-align: justify;">I have amazing contacts who work&mdash;or who have worked&mdash;in law enforcement, including police officers, detectives, members of SWAT, and people in forensics. I even have a contact who used to work as a coroner. So whenever I have a question, I reach out to them. They are so selfless with their time, and I am very grateful.</p>

<p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>Where can we get a copy of <em>Power Struggle</em>?</strong></p>
