Today I have a fantastic book to tell you about 🙂 My lovely friends at Moon Rose Publishing have some fantastic things to read lately, so I had to show you 🙂 Now let’s get to it!
Megan has never had what most would call a normal life.
Her childhood and teen years were spent on the run with her family, hiding from a horror so great it defines their world. Friends and homes are traded at a moment’s notice to escape from their worst nightmares.
Years pass, and her mother settles down with her new step-father, a kind man who does his best to protect them. Life lulls into a safe pace, and Megan finally feels as though she has control of her future for the first time in her life. But that peace is shattered with the arrival of a new family member, one that bears a striking resemblance to a savior of her past…
Confused by her deep emotional connection to him, things unravel fast. She learns that the people she lives with, even her own family, are not what they seem. Her only friend who helped her piece her life back together changes overnight, and she is left dealing with the fallout on her own…
As events unfold, Megan finds herself face to face with the horror that has haunted her since childhood. But will she be able to escape from her twisted bloodline?
Well, let me just say that this is a fantastic book, but it’s not for the faint of heart nor the weak stomached. It’s a thrilling, scary ride through the life of Megan, but it’s complicated, and dark, and hauntingly amazing. I have never been more shocked by a story’s plots, and bad guys, and twists, and secrets. Trust me, it’s full of things that are awe-inspiring. Plus, let’s just say that the characters will all surprise you. 🙂
Megan is a complex character. She’s a scared timid girl when you first meet her- for good reasons. She has been on the run constantly from her father, and boy would I run too. Actually I think I would find every way possible to kill him, but it’s a little more complicated than that. But anywho. So, as she moves to a place she feels safer, she begins to find her self and friends, and for the first time, it really feels like she has a family. Until… well, let’s just say when you constantly have to look over your shoulder, and watch your back, there’s really no way to not make a mistake. And when her new best friend seems to be in trouble, she gets herself in more trouble that she helps. Megan’s adventure, if you can call it that, is a going to wow you.
There’s so many side characters to talk about. Megan’s twin brother, her mother, her step father, her new best friend and his crazy sister, the crazy stalkers that come around every corner, her new step cousins, I could go one. There’s so many secrets going on between the different characters. And the plot was so well planned. I did not expect things when they happened. This type of crazy hasn’t been done before 🙂 It’s one of those stories that I have to say, it was amazing, but sometimes hard. Some of those things may be hard, but they made the story. I definitely cannot wait for more of this story to go on. I seriously need a few to get what’s coming to them, both good and bad. 5 JAW DROPPING, HEART WRENCHING ACTION PACKED PAWS!
WELCOME!! First, tell me a little about your book and why you wanted to write this particular story….
The story follows Megan and her newly extended family on their journey for survival against the beast that has been stalking Megan all her life. I wanted to write this story because there is a lot of action involved and it can also become quite emotional at times. Since I have made it into a series you also get to know some of the characters in depth and see how they become affected by the events surrounding them.
Do you recall how your interest in writing originated or did you always just know?
I remember writing lots of stories in my younger years, however I have no idea what happened to them. It would be interesting to see how my writing now, compares to what it used to be.
What inspired you to write your first book and what was it?
The idea for my book came to me out of the blue. It was originally planned to be in the horror genre but upon seeing a tattoo I liked, it sparked an idea for some of my characters and I decided to turn my story into a paranormal thriller instead.
I love that you did that! Are experiences based on someone you know, or events in your own life?
No, none of the story is based on any experiences or real events it is purely fiction.
Whew! How do you chose when/which characters die in your books?
I wrote down each characters role and purpose in the story before I began writing it, although some of them have altered along the way.
Are there any new authors that have grasped your interest?
There are so many new authors I have come across lately which have interested me but one stands out. Never having read an autobiography before I came across Nathan Daniels an indie author and his book was totally amazing, he definitely grasped my interest.
Who do you look up to as a writer?
I have two favorite authors. Richard Laymon and Sherrilyn Kenyon so I guess you could say I look up to them. Both write in different genres and I can honestly say I have never grown bored of any of their books, neither have I not wanted to finish one.
If you had to do it all over again, would you change anything in your book?
Now that is a funny question. I have changed my book so many times, it barely resembles my original draft but I’m very happy with the finished result.
I am too 🙂 Is there anything you find particularly challenging in your writing?
I find the dialogue challenging at times. I get a clear idea in my head of what I want the characters to say but getting them to express how I want it can be challenging sometimes.
What book are you reading now? Or what genre? My followers love author’s opinions!
At the moment I am reading Lover at Last by J.R. Ward, I love the Black Dagger Brotherhood series. I usually read in the paranormal genre but am quite partial to the horror genre.
Who designed the cover? And do you help with them?
My publisher Miranda Stork designed my cover and she does do amazing covers. I’m useless at that sort of thing so I wouldn’t be any help at all.
She’s quite an amazing cover designer and author! Did you learn anything from writing your books and what was it?
I think the main thing I have learned is to have more confidence in myself and my abilities. So many times over the years I had thought about writing a book but never followed through until now.
If you could be one of your characters, who would you chose?
I think I would choose Sabrina, she is a no- nonsense kick ass kinda gal. She doesn’t come into the story until the end but like I said you will find out more about her as the story continues.
I liked her too 🙂 Are there any books you think some of us should read, just because?
Tough question. There are so many out there, I already mentioned The Black Dagger Brotherhood series. My absolute favorites are The Dark Hunter series by Sherrilyn Kenyon, Guardians of Eternity by Alexandra Ivy and The Breed series by Lara Adrian. You wouldn’t have enough room on your blog for my recommendations.
Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers?
All I can really say is that I hope they enjoy Twisted Bloodlines as much as I do I’m always available to talk to. In fact I would love to hear from my readers and their opinions either good or bad.
I definitely hope we do this again for your next book! I’m a new huge fan!!
More About The Author
I was born and raised in London, which is where I still live now with my husband and children. As a child I always had my nose stuck in a book. I started out reading mysteries such as Nancy Drew and then soon moving onto Agatha Christie. I then found a love of the horror genre, Richard Laymon being my favourite author among a few others. When a friend introduced me to the paranormal romance/fantasy genre I soon became hooked, building myself a very impressive to read pile and a long list of favourite authors. I would say both of these genres have influenced in the way I write and combining them is where I came up with the idea for my book.
