I’ve had the pleasure of reading two of this award winning author’s eerie and atmospheric books. With several to choose from, you can’t go wrong with your selection.
Perfect for supernatural thriller fans. Beautiful. Seductive. Wild. Kip Livingston, an artist living on Horn Island, is struggling with the powers of a dark invader haunting her dreams. Every night this winged creature chases her deeper to the bottom of the ocean. But waking up doesn’t destroy the dream, or the creature. The entity is always near. Desperate for help, she turns to the charming Raymond Kera, a man fighting his own demons. When Raymond is drawn into Kip’s night sea journeys, her nightmare becomes his own. Can he save Kip when he learns there is only one way out of the dream? Angels and demons, psychological and spiritual twists, murder and romance make this mysterious adventure a gripping fast read.
What’s the first story you ever wrote?
I made up lots of stories in my head as a child but didn’t actually write them down until high school. I began with short stories and they all had ghosts and spirits, mostly in the woods and in the sky.
Which fictional character would you most like to meet and have a drink with?
Captain Ahab from Moby Dick. After reading about Herman Melville’s research to write the novel, I think speaking with Ahab would be extraordinary.
In the spirit of Halloween, what scares you?
Monsters. I hate them. Zombies too because they are a freak of nature.
Favorite hero and villain in a book/movie?
I loved Dexter from the TV series. He played the killer with smooth intelligence and yet still had room for sensitivity.
What do you consider the hardest part of writing?
Creating characters. Getting that realistic element is always a challenge and a motivation.
What are you working on now?
New novel is Draakensky (working title). I can’t talk about it.
