excerpt
His wild raven coloured hair had been tamed into a “short back and sides” and no longer hid his eyes. “Wolf eyes,” one of his former girlfriends had called them and he supposed she hadn’t been too far off the mark. They were his greatest asset and just as the wolf watched and waited to make his move, so he had watched with his “wolf eyes” all those years and made move after move that had paid off. Now, only a few more moves remained in his endgame with the Smiths. Annabel Smith looked incredible. The years had been kind and she looked as good now as she had done in all the years when she had reigned as Queen Bee at every teenage disco. He remembered watching from his place in the shadows and how she had dispensed her precious attention like queens of old would award favours. Of course only the wealthy and handsome had needed to apply. Flynn hadn’t even been at the ball. So, it would seem presenting himself as the bait had worked. She wanted him or at least she wanted Flynn Murphy and all that his apparent wealth could bring her. “Kiss me,” he whispered into her ear. He didn’t have to ask twice. She kissed him like a hawk might strike its prey…. She lowered her head and kissed him with an intensity that made his head spin. After a few minutes she came up for air. “Mmmmm,” she murmured, “I adore the taste of whiskey on a man.” Grace O’Malley had seen a few things in her time as weekend receptionist in the Grand Hotel but nothing quite like Flynn Murphy, barefoot in a pair of trousers, as he paced the foyer, his shirt hanging open to reveal the type of torso she’d only ever seen on male models in glossy magazines.   soundtrack
 
Author Interview
 

Did you always wanted to be a writer? If not what did you want to be?.

My childhood assertions that I wanted to be a Formula 1 driver, a pilot and a doctor were greeted by much laughter in various quarters. The problem with the first two choices apparently was that I was a "girl" - said with much derision and I couldn't be a doctor because I was crap at maths. I knew I was good at English so I decided writing was the way to go. This decision was greeted by outright scorn.

When did you first consider yourself a “writer”?

When I published the three books - Remember Me, Unfinished Business and Over Your Dead Body.

How long did it take to get your first book published?

It's taken me all my life! However, as an indie author it took me just under a year to write the three novellas and get them up on Amazon.

Do you do another job except for writing and can you tell us more about it?

I'm a full-time mum - the hardest job in the world!

What is the name of your latest book, and if you had to summarize it in less than 20 words what would you say?

Remember Me - A Story of Secrets, Lust and Revenge.

Who is your publisher? Or do you self-publish?

I am self-published on Amazon.

How long does it usually take you to write a book, from the original idea to finishing writing it?

It took me about eight months to write the three novellas which, when combined, amount to the same size as a full-length novel.

What can we expect from you in the future? ie More books of the same genre? Books of a different genre?

I'm already a third of the way through my next book which is a full length novel and is along the same lines. It focuses on two people who don't have time for love but love just might have something to say about that. The book after that is about two people who are incredibly damaged and how they find a way forward.

What genre would you place your books into?

They are not classic romance stories but that is the closest genre I can put them into.

What made you decide to write that genre of book?

I'm fascinated with the human condition / mind and what makes ordinary people tick. Also, people can make crazy decisions that lead to all sorts of outcomes. I love exploring this in my stories and seeing where the characters end up. And I'm fascinated by the intervention of fate. So often we think we have everything under control and then something happens to show us how stupid we were to think that. I don't think there is a genre where you can explore all these elements to the extent to which you can in the romance genre.

Do you have a favorite character from your books? And why are they your favorite?

I love Flynn in Remember Me! He's so successful and self-assured but the past haunts him and he is now in a position to exact his revenge. However, for all his confidence he is still taken by surprise by some of the emotions that surface in his dealings with Annabel Smith. I love this - it shows that despite all he has achieved, somewhere in his psyche is a young man who still wonders what it would be like to be with the Queen Bee. Even though she is an uber-bitch - I have to admit to having a certain amount of respect for Annabel too!

How long have you been writing?, and who or what inspired you to write?

I've been writing all my life. Some people paint, some people sing, some people dance. I write. It has never been a case of inspiration as much as a compulsion.

Do you have a certain routine you have for writing? ie You listen to music, sit in a certain chair?

I'm very easily distracted and a natural born procrastinator so it's vital for me to get into the right headspace before I can write. I have defined my writing space with my own office. The children go to after school care on Mondays and Tuesdays and these are my long writing days and are non-negotiable. I try and get some writing done at night and also during the rest of the week but it's not easy.

Do you choose a title first, or write the book then choose the title?

As the story formulates in my mind so will the title which I find helps me to focus when writing the book.

How do you come up with characters names and place names in your books?

They literally pop out of my head! All three of my currently published stories are based in the west of Ireland so some of the place names are factual but everything else came from the nether regions of my imagination.

Are character names and place names decided after their creation? Or do you pick a character/place name and then invent them?

It's a bit of both.

Do you decide on character traits (ie shy, quiet, tomboy girl) before writing the whole book or as you go along?

The characters are like real people to me - they come pretty much fully formed so I do my best to describe / draw them in my stories as I go along.

Are there any hidden messages or morals contained in your books? (Morals as in like Aesops Fables type of "The moral of this story is..")

No.

Which format of book do you prefer, eBook, hardback, or paperback?

I do most my reading on my tablet - mostly because I read at night in bed. I still love the feel of a paperback though.

What is your favorite book and Why? Have you read it more than once?

Book? As in one! Oh I have so many. The Twilight Series because they made me feel seventeen again. The Hunger Games due to the sparsity of the prose and the unflinching subjec t matter and the punch at the end of the series. Tess of The D'Urbervilles by Thomas Hardy for its richly drawn imagery. Atonement by Ian McEwan for its powerful imagery and the depiction of the harsh realities of war and it's subtle observation of human emotions. The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo because Lisbeth Salander made sense to me on so many levels.

Do you think books transfer to movies well? Which is you favorite/worst book to movie transfer?

It all depends on the producers and the director. I think The Hunger Games trilogy has been done exceptionally well and the Outlander series on T.V. is amazing, as is Game Of Thrones.

Your favorite food is?

Fresh Lobster caught in the Atlantic waters off the west coast of Ireland, served with lemon or garlic butter. Steamed new potatoes and carrots from my Dad's garden would be perfect on the side and for dessert you can't beat my mum's apple pie!

Your favorite singer/group is?

There is an endless list! However, two red-heads top it at the moment - Adele and Ed Sheeran.

Your favorite color is?

Red! I'm a red fiend.

Your favorite Author is?

Oh there cannot only be one! I love Ian McEwan for the richness of his prose and imagery. I love Kaylea Cross for her tight plots, thorough research and great sex scenes. Suzanne Collins for her brutal and unflinching subject matter. Thomas Hardy for his beautiful imagery, George R.R. Martin for his incredible world-building and Stieg Larsson for Lisbeth Salander.

  Excerpt

clip_image002[5]

Work was busy this evening and it was a welcome distraction. I worked as a waitress with Ebony at the Burger Grill. It was a small, family-owned diner. It had been around for over forty years. Ebony had gotten me on a few weeks ago.

“How was your day?” Ebony asked as we were putting our aprons on.

“I’m getting used to the flow of school. How was yours?”

“It will be better once this shift is over. I’m bloated and cramping today.”

“Did you take some medicine?”

“Yes, but it hasn’t kicked in yet. Any luck with J?”

“Not sure. We talked some.”

“At least he is talking with you. It’s a good sign.”

“I hope so.”

“People are getting seated in our sections. We’d better get to our tables,” she said.

We tended to our tables, and around an hour later, Ebony tapped me on my shoulder.

“Look what the cat dragged in. I sat him in your section,” she said and giggled. I saw Jason across the room, sitting with his brother and sister.

“Thanks a lot,” I said, sarcastically. Now I would have to face him again.

“You’re welcome,” she replied still laughing and walked off.

I took in a deep breath and went to their table.

“Hi guys, I’m Melanie. What can I get for you this evening?”

Jason looked up in surprise and blushed slightly, making my stomach do a somersault. Their sister said, “Hi Melanie. We get to formally meet now, I’m Harmony. And I will have a Coke.”

She and her brother did look exactly alike. “Are you guys twins?” I blurted out.

“Yes,” her brother replied. “Nice to meet you, Melanie. I’m Jaden. How do you like Cashmere so far?”

“It’s okay, but slightly different from school in Australia.”

“I love your accent,” Jaden said.

“Thanks.” Jaden was handsome, but his brother was gorgeous.

“Melanie, how long have you been working here? My siblings and I come here often,” Jason interrupted and appeared to give his brother an evil glare.

“For just a few weeks.”

He looked like wanted to ask something else but didn’t.

“What can I get you guys to drink?” I didn’t want to stand there making goo-goo eyes at him.

“I will have a Coke,” Jaden said.

“And I will have a Sprite,” Jason replied.

“Coming right up.”

I brought them back their drinks, took their food order, and took care of my other tables. A little while later Ebony stood next to me, waiting on her order.

“I’ve noticed he keeps staring at you.”

“Who?”

“You know who. Jason.”

“Don’t you have tables to tend to?” I replied playfully.

“I just thought you should know.”

She winked at me and took her food order. He was eating a French fry. Gosh, he even looked sexy doing that. He caught my eye and signaled for me to come over.

“We’d like the check, please,” Harmony said.

“Sure,” I answered, pulling out the bill and placing it on the table.

“So Melanie, are you seeing anyone?” Jaden asked.

Excuse me! He was very direct. I had just met him. Harmony giggled, and Jason turned red. I cleared my throat. “No, not at the moment. Why?”

“Maybe we can hang out sometimes,” he replied with a smile. He leaned back and folded his arms behind his head, waiting for an answer. Harmony was amused, and Jason looked aggravated.

“Um no. Absolutely not.”

“Geez, well why not?”

“Because Ebony’s my friend first off, and second, I have my eye on someone else.”

“Oh, sorry. I didn’t know you guys were friends,” he replied, looking remorseful.

“Yeah, we are good friends,” I said, walking off.

I went to the kitchen and glanced back at their table. Harmony and Jason were laughing. Jaden appeared annoyed. Served him right. It was obvious he thought he was Mr. Casanova.

“What was Jaden talking to you about?” Ebony asked.

“Nothing much, the usual. He noticed my accent and wondered where I was from,” I lied. I wasn’t about to tell her he was flirting. He did apologize when he realized we were friends though, so maybe he wasn’t a total douche. I glanced back over to my section, but they were gone.

*  *  *

After my shift I stopped at the corner store. There were only a few cars in the parking lot, and no one in sight. I headed to my car, and hit the alarm. Before I could get the door open someone grabbed me from behind. I struggled against them, and fought with all my might, but he dragged me into the side alley. Another person charged from the side, and then something hit me in the head. I fell to the ground, and touched my throbbing wound. It was dark with only the side light from the building, so I couldn’t see the blood clearly. But I could feel the liquid stickiness on my fingers. I squinted in the dim light, straining to see my attackers, but I couldn’t see any facial features. They were blurry. They appeared to be males with short hair, and their broad body frame.

“Leave me alone!”

One man’s response was a kick to my stomach. I gasped and cringed in pain. Why was this happening to me? I had been told that burglaries and assault hardly ever happened on this side of town. Me and my rotten luck were going to make the crime rate sky rocket. Taking a deep breath, I gathered my courage, and tried to get up. One of the men pushed me back down. I saw an object in his hand, the silver color bounced off of the light. It was a knife. I had to find a way out of this. Heat pulsed through my body as I glared into his eyes. And fear consumed me with the black depths of them, dark as midnight. The other man held me down, and I fought to get out of his grasp. The one with the blade leaned closer to me. He didn’t have on a mask, but I still couldn’t make out his features. He was faceless. He thrust the blade against my neck. The pain was sharp, and tears sprang into my eyes.

“Please stop! Why are you doing this?”

He snorted. “Because the greater good has preordained it.”

Before I could contemplate his strange explanation he slit the knife against my throat.

  Author Interview

 

Did you always wanted to be a writer? If not what did you want to be?

      I have wanted to be an author since I was fifteen years old.

When did you first consider yourself a “writer”?

     I first considered myself a writer when I wrote my first unpublished book when I was fifteen.

How long did it take to get your first book published?

     Once I found out about Create Space it took around eight months to get my book published.

Do you do another job except for writing and can you tell us more about it?

     Yes, my fulltime job is an Ultrasound tech. I scan everything from babies, to breast, and almost all body parts.

What is the name of your latest book, and if you had to summarize it in less than 20 words what would you say?

     The name of my latest book is Melanie’s Evanescent Journey.

     There are two sides to every story. This one is told from Melanie. From spiraling twists to devastating plots, her journey will make your question fate and true love. 

Who is your publisher? Or do you self-publish?

     I am self-published through Create Space publishing.

How long does it usually take you to write a book, from the original idea to finishing writing it?

     My first book took me over four years to write. But now that I know the main plot and where it is going in each book, it’s a lot faster. Melanie Evanescent Journey, my companion novel took me around five months to write. And book #2 Sonar The Cyclone took me eight months to write.

What can we expect from you in the future?  More books of the same genre? Books of a different genre?

     You can expect more books from the same genres of fantasy, sci-fi, and paranormal-romance. The series that I am currently writing now is New Adult. But my next series will be Young Adult.

What genre would you place your books into?

     Fantasy, Sci-fi, Paranormal-romance, Space opera

What made you decide to write that genre of book?

     I decided to write in that genre because it’s my favorite to read.

Do you have a favorite character from your books? And why are they your favorite?

     That’s hard because I like them all. But my favorites are my two heroines in my first novel, Sonar The Crashing.

How long have you been writing?, and who or what inspired you to write?

     I have been writing on and off since I was fifteen. Writing has always been my passion, so I decided to put my thoughts into a story.

Do you have a certain routine you have for writing? ie You listen to music, sit in a certain chair?

     I listen to music most of the time while I write scenes. That helps a lot. I do make notes and outlines beforehand when I first get an idea. But I don’t write the story in order. I write the story as it presents itself to me.

Do you choose a title first, or write the book then choose the title?

     I choose the title after I know what the main plot of the story is. Also once I know certain aspects within the storyline.

How do you come up with characters names and place names in your books?

     I develop the plot first, and then as the story unfolds the characters fall in line. As for names; I like unique names. I also like to use biblical names. For each of my series I like to have a cultural theme. For example; the Sonar series’ theme is Egypt.

Are there any hidden messages or morals contained in your books? (Morals as in like Aesops Fables type of "The moral of this story is..")

      Yes, the hook to Melanie’s Evanescent Journey contains a hidden message. Love may cost a price if the greater good preordains that you are the sacrifice.

     Morals:

       Forgive those who have hurt you most. Life is short and precious. We all make mistakes and everyone deserves a second chance.

Do you think books transfer to movies well? Which is you favorite/worst book to movie transfer?

     A lot of times books do transfer over to movies well.  It depends on who the director is. And it also helps if the author is a co-producer. My favorite movie transfer is Breaking Dawn part 1 & 2. I actually liked both of those movies better than the books. And it’s normally the other way around.
     As for the worst, I was very disappointed in the True blood series. The first three years started off good and followed the books, but still had their own spin to it. The fourth book was my favorite. That season of True Blood was just okay. I don’t think they did the book justice though. And then it just went downhill from there.

My favorite color is purple.    

     My favorite color is purple.

Your favorite Author is?

     My favorite authors are Stephanie Myers, Sherrilyn Kenyon, Jamie McGuire, and Jennifer Armentrout

bio
book1
SAMANTHA RICKETTS: 25-30 long hair, dark, feisty. Sam grew up in a haunted house being able to hear ghosts that her father (a scientist) help conjure up and capture. They torment her for her whole childhood and she finally breaks free of them become a mythology tutor. She wakes up to find herself in the field of a church which blows up and she is rescued by Zander but doesn’t let her guard down. Lieutenant Zander Smith: 25-30 dark hair, military man. Zander can see ghosts and uses his ability to help the military team find and destroy the ghouls that they trace. He is fascinated by Samantha when he finds her on the field. He has had run ins with the ghost in the old house that she used to live in and find s that he is very protective of her and very attached. book 2 ANNA NEUVILLE had lived in Burke Flats most of her youth, had seen the comings and goings of the strange little town, but for her there was nothing magical about the place. Scary, dark, secretive, and definitely a place of unrest-those were the words that she would use to describe how she felt about her home in the mountains. That was until she met William Stiles. FIRST LIEUTENANT WILLIAM STILES never liked being so close to any hot spot. Something in Burke Flats wasn't just hot, it was steaming, especially out by the marsh. He was a strong-headed lifer; there was no way he was getting out of the service anytime soon. He had entered straight from high school and moved up the ranks quickly, gaining a college education and taking command in Iraq several times. He had a Master's in Homeland Security and a Bachelor's in Strategic Leadership. He had never questioned his abilities until Anna stepped into his life. book 3 PEIGHTON WEAK She was the one that Dell always called in. There was nothing that Peighton couldn’t figure out when she’s put in the right situation. Having witnessed Dell’s death, Peighton set out to solve the mystery that surrounded Aldenville, and she had Scott by her side to do it. Peighton came with the highest recommendations in her field, and Dell always requested her when she stumbled on the black hole. She is an expert at dry cave diving and anthropology. SPECIAL AGENT SCOTT EMBRY Embry was an ex-Special Ops, if anyone could ever be one, who transferred to the FBI’s special new division after his medical discharge. It was strange to step into a world outside his own after living in the military ranks for so long, but at the same time he had seen some things on his tours that brought the rest of the “known” world collapsing down on him. The S.P.I.R.I.T. division of the FBI was a bit different than the military units deployed around the country. Most of the agents he knew were the first in after everything was cleared and taken care of, but with Embry and his canine companion, they seemed to be the ones that stepped in just as everything came to a boil and things weren’t looking good for the unit members.

clip_image017 Being raised in both the Northeast corner of Vermont and one of the larger cities in Massachusetts has given Dawn, a divorced mother of three, the unique ability to mix the spookiness of a small town ghost story with the fast pace action of city life. Island Pond, Vermont was every child's wonderland, with looming mountains and small towns nestled in the valleys, its simple lifestyle gave Ms. Gray the ability to let her imagination run wild, thus creating her unique style of writing, where the stories speak for themselves. Big city living, in her teenage years to the present allowed her to harvest that energy and creativeness to bring to life some of the most unique characters, such as Michael Raven and Julian Deveraux. Although Vampires are her most used basis for characters and settings, Ms. Gray's novels also venture into those of other supernatural realms, with ghosts, witchcraft and werewolves coming into play in several of her upcoming manuscripts.
