Hello everyone. All of my Reviews, that I have yet to write, will be posted sporadically during the summer. After the end of this summer, I will not be posting on here anymore, as you will see the info on the right side of the blog.
While Olivia Martin observed life through her camera, the Abyss gazed back at her. She discovers mysterious men follow her around, people close to her are dying, and her dreams are no longer her own as she falls head over heels for a perfect stranger. A chance encounter leads to an obsession that could destroy everything she has ever known or loved. Olivia is about to find out there is a lot she doesn’t know and sometimes what you don’t know can kill you.
Life. I can hardly go through a week without a new idea or a new scene or piece of dialogue that begs to be put on paper. I find inspiration in everything.
What genre are you most comfortable writing?
I write mystery and paranormal romance, but I have plans to expand into other genres as well. I think the only genre I wouldn’t want to try is nonfiction.
What made you want to be a writer?
Writing is a part of me now. Even if I never published another word I would still write. It is my therapy, my imagination, my release.
Have you developed a specific writing style?
I think so. I have a lot of readers comment about how much they like my writing style and how smooth it is. I feel like I write in an easy, fast-paced, realistic manner.
Can you share a little of your current work with us?
I am currently working on the second book in my Easy Bake Coven series. The book is called Hungry, Hungry Hoodoo. I will share a piece of that.
I stood in my scorched, hollowed-out yoga studio, turning in a listless circle, too numb to feel. The store front was a wet, smoldering pile of ash and the studio merely a shell.
“Was anyone hurt,” I asked, barely recognizing my own voice. Numb was too small of a word—shell-shocked was more accurate.
“No,” Femi’s voice came from the doorway. I didn’t even know she was here. She prowled around the room silent as death, her green cat eyes collecting every detail. “It happened overnight.”
Can you tell us about your main character?
Olivia Martin is nice, loyal woman whose life is going pretty well. She loved her family, friends and job, but then she meets two men who began to open up a new world to her which threatens to destroy everything she knows.
Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp?
I think the message in this series is about finding your place in the world regardless of what others think or where destiny may lead. I think there is also a message about not judging people by what they appear to be.
Who is your favorite author and why?
I can’t choose just one. I love Jane Austen, Edgar Allen Poe, Jim Butcher, Thomas Harris, Brett Easton Ellis, etc. They all appeal to me for different reasons, but most importantly they are all excellent storytellers.
Do you have any advice for writers?
Always finish your work. If you start a book, finish it.
What do you do to unwind and relax?
I read or watch TV.
Do you have any upcoming appearances that you would like to share with us?
I will be at the RT Booklovers Convention in May and Thrillerfest in July.
When you wish to end your career, stop writing, and look back on your life, what thoughts would you like to have?
That I put something worthwhile into the world and I brightened strangers lives with my words.
