Hi Chrys and welcome to Adventures in Authorland. Please get comfortable and tell us about your adventure.
When did you first consider yourself a ?
I was twelve-years-old when I developed and started writing a series of books. From that moment on I knew I had to be a writer because nothing else would satisfy my heart.
What book are you reading now?
The impossible Knife of Memory by Laurie Halse Anderson. After reading so many adult books, I like to read some young adult every now and then, and this one caught my eye.
Can you give us some details about your upcoming release/s?
30 Seconds is a romantic-suspense that’ll be coming out from The Wild Rose Press sometime this summer. This story revolves around a doctor who comes home from pulling an all-nighter at the ER and is suddenly thrust into a war between a police force and a deadly mob. There is nail-biting action and heart-pounding romance.
When you are not writing, what are your hobbies, passions, etc?
I enjoy drawing fashion designs, penning song lyrics, reading, listening to music, baking bread, and cooking pasta.
If you could have any super hero power, what would it be?
Oh, now this is a fun question! I have a heroine I’ve written with countless powers and I think my most favourite power she has is how her hands erupt with neon green flames. She can throw balls of flames too. I would love that!
Do you have any advice for new writers beginning their adventure?
Don’t let rejection get you down. Stay positive, keep writing, and use that rejection as kindling.
*Hurricane Crimes is a short story.*
After her car breaks down, Beth Kennedy is forced to stay in Florida, the target of Hurricane Sabrina. She stocks up supplies, boards up windows, and hunkers down to wait out the storm, but her plan unravels when she witnesses a car accident. Risking her life, she braves the winds to save the driver. Just when she believes they are safe, she finds out the man she saved could possibly be more dangerous than the severe weather.
Donovan Goldwyn only wanted to hide from the police, but the hurricane shoved his car into a tree. Now he's trapped with a beautiful woman while the evidence that can prove his innocence to a brutal crime is out there for anyone to find.
As Hurricane Sabrina wreaks havoc, Beth has no other choice but to trust Donovan to stay alive. But will she survive, or will she become another hurricane crime?
Excerpt: HURRICANE CRIMES
On the television set, which was fighting to stay alive, was breaking news. She caught bits and pieces of it as she emptied the bowl of blood-tainted water and threw out the cloth. It was about a high-speed chase that had occurred about a half-hour ago. Beth shook her head. Apparently, Donovan wasn’t the only idiot driving around during a hurricane.
She went back into the living room and began replacing all the medical supplies into the first-aid kit. Behind her, a reporter was explaining that the driver of the car was believed to be a murder suspect.
“The name of the—”
The lights flashed, prompting Beth to snatch up her flashlight.
Her fingers went cold around the plastic tube as ice frosted her veins. She straightened her spine and turned stiffly to the television, her heart wasn’t beating in her chest. On the screen was the picture of the man who was right now changing in her bedroom. Above it was a caption in bold letters that read—SUSPECT.
She gripped the flashlight in her frozen fingers. Her heart thudded fearfully. She stared into the immobilized violet eyes through the glass.
“Oh my god,” she gasped.
She had brought a murderer into her home!
