#BadMoonRising: The Rigel Affair by L.M. Hedrick #thriller

Werewolves?  No, thanks.  Intruder in the house?  This author takes a more practical approach.  Welcome L.M. Hedrick!

Vampires, ghosts, werewolves, or zombies – which would you least want to meet in a dark alley?

Werewolves – I don’t mind being scared, but being eaten and turned into a rabid creature is not my idea of a good dinner.

Have you ever played with a Ouija board?

Yes, and like to believe they work J

You’re home alone, but you hear footsteps in your house–what do you do? 

Grab my Walther PPK and confront.

How do you develop your plots and characters? 

Put myself in the scene and into the minds of the character… become the character and see the world through their eyes.

What tools do you feel are must-haves for writers? 

A Top quality desk and chair, great computer, pleasant surroundings – so that you can transport yourself into the story without local interference.

What do you like to do when you’re not writing? 

I am an expressionist Artist – so painting and being with my wonderful husband Bud.

What are you working on now? 

The sequel to The Rigel Affair.

Abandoned by his part-Cherokee Ma, Charlie Kincaid escapes servitude with his uncle. He jumps a boxcar, accompanied by his schoolmate Roxy, who is escaping troubles of her own. Charlie becomes a US Navy Diver.

Mattie Blanc is from a genteel New Zealand family. But when her brother’s friend persuades her to take a ride, it all goes horribly wrong. Desperate, she flees her family’s stifling expectations for a new life in Auckland.

After the 1941 Pearl Harbor attack, Charlie sets sail for Auckland aboard the USS Rigel. And there she is, the girl of his dreams. Mattie is everything that Roxy isn’t—sophisticated, tender, and patient. But the war intervenes… Rigel embarks for the Pacific war zones.

Charlie’s letters are sporadic. Mattie is tormented by doubts; did he truly love her, or was it only a dream?

The Rigel Affair produces a rip-roaring wartime romance and chilling danger unknown to most.
