Hi Karen. It's great to have you over to discuss your life and latest release. Please tell us about "Two Worlds Collided".
It's a Time travel romance that takes place in 1997 Los Angeles. Evie Reid, on a whim, agrees to travel back in time to change bad boy Bellamy Lovel's path of destruction. She's smart with a college degree, but she's still fan-girl crazy for the rock band, Civilized Heathens. Evie knows despite all Bellamy's smiles and enthusiasm on the stage, he's destined to end it all on one lonely night in a hotel room unless she can change his path.
Bellamy isn't keen on having Evie as his personal assistant, hired by his band mates to watch over him, and keep him on schedule. However, there is something about the woman that sparks his interest, despite his best to ignore her. When darkness threatens to consume him, he realizes she may be the only light that will chase the shadows away.
At what point did you know you wanted to publish a book?
As long as I can remember. I started writing down my stories when I was about nine or ten. I wrote plays at first. My fifth grade teacher let my friends and I perform one of them too. It was very exciting for a ten year old.
Later, I jotted down stories in notebooks. I still have those early writings. They were written in ink, not on a computer. So 'spell check' wasn't available. I couldn't erase or add words if they were needed. Definitely, a rough draft. lol My daughters, when they were young, loved those stories and read them over and over again.
In high school drama class, we performed a skit I'd written. Tea for Two- a quirky murder-comedy. I was pleased when the audience laughed at the appropriate times. :)
If your home a place of order or chaos?
Chaos even though I try to have order. lol
What genres do you write in and what inspired you to write in these genres?
I mostly pen paranormal tales with otherworldly creatures or time travel romance. I love to create new worlds with the possibility of what if.
What is our favorite drink?
Cinnamon Almond Latte
What is your writing place like?
I have a laptop so I can sit anywhere. I tend to sit near a window so I can see out side.
What's next for you as an author?
I'm working on a rock star/ghost story with a mystery and of course a romance. It's titled: End of the Road.
Lars Gunner, the frontman for Silent Plaids, died 23 years ago and is trapped in limbo until his daughter, Cecilia, unearths his journal and is able to see him. His death was ruled an unfortunate accident, but he's convinced it had to be murder despite the fact he can't recall what happened in his last moments of life. Cecilia seeks help from Kaleb, a psychic, but as they resurrect the past, the secrets and lies surrounding Lar's rock and roll life just may be the death of them too.
It's been great having you over.
Readers are what writers can never live without. The novel doesn't only belong to the writer; it also belongs to the reader as well. Without the reader the story is just ink on a paper and nothing more. Opening the book, reading those first words, this is where the true magic begins. I love readers! Thank you so much for loving books.
