On Leaving Shadow Falls…

51KfobWWWNL._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_With the release of Midnight Hour, I gave quite a few online interviews. I always enjoy that part of my job, especially when I get asked some unusual questions–and there have been some really strange ones. Anyway, this is an interview I did for B’s Book Reviews on Oct. 23rd. I thought you’d enjoy it, so here it is.

  1. How did you feel writing the end of the Shadow Falls series/universe?

Do you remember the feeling when you were young and your parents told you that you had to move?   And you had these friends who you loved and who were a part of your life?  That terrible feeling that you were walking away from people you loved and you knew in your heart that these people would no longer be a part of your life?  I cried so hard when I wrote the end of Midnight Hour.  The Shadow Fall’s characters are like family to me.  Since 2010, I’ve been with these characters.  I’m not going to say that I wouldn’t return to this world to write another book, but for now there are no plans.

  1. Out of the three main girls (Kylie, Della, and Miranda) which did you connect with most when writing as them?

That’s like asking me which of my children I connect with the most.  The truth is I connect with them all in different ways. They each have parts of me in them.  They have some of my traits, even some of my flaws. I spent five books with Kylie Galen.  I can honestly say, she’s more like me when I was young than the other girls.  Like Kylie, I’m an internalizer.  Even when young, I had a tendency to think something to death before I acted on it.

Della, however, she’s more like the person I’ve grown into, and often the person I wish I was more like.  She speaks her mind, calls it like she sees it.  I love that about her.  Ahh, but the very thing I love about her is what sometimes drives me crazy.

Miranda is smack dab in the middle of these two.  She’s sweet, but also a little sassy.  She can speak her mind when pushed.  But deep down she’s so insecure.  Dyslexia can do that to you.  I know, because we both share this trait.  I feel a special bond with her for that reason.  I loved watching her overcome the insecurities that dyslexia brings to so many people dealing with this disability. In Midnight Hour, Miranda moves past a lot of hurdles and finally knows and accepts her own abilities and strengths.

  1. What is coming next?

I’m almost finished with my next young adult novel.  It will be out in September 2017.  I’m unable to really talk about it, but I can tell you that it’s a little different in that it’s not paranormal.  It’s contemporary.  But it has a touch of woo-woo, a paranormal thread.  It has touches of my humor, but tons of heart and an element of mystery that will keep the readers turning pages.  I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am about this book.


You can still order Midnight Hour and share in the final chapter of my Shadow Falls series. Midnight Hour is available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iBooks and Kobo.

  1. I can’t wait to finish this series. I have the first 4 books in there own spot on my bookshelf (which I hope to be my own mini library one day) and am looking forward to adding the rest. I may be behind because of graduating and getting a big girl job, which takes up a lot of time, but I got this! I’m excited for your new book as well 🙂

  2. Hey yall im new to the site as a blogger but iv been reading these books and iv feel in love! I have never been a reader , I started on vampire kisses and moved to Shadow falls and now that they all done i don’t know what to do , i need something to read granted it will never compare to my love of these books but im like a lost puppy trying to find a home lol so if any one has any ideas on any other books that are similar to these it would be appreciated…
    thanks

    • I haven’t stopped writing books. In fact I’ve already finished another book, but it does’t have anything to do with SF. That said, it’s still has a little mystery, some suspense, some woo-woo and a lot of heart.

  3. I loved the SF series and all the romance, I can relate to Kylie alot; I wish there was more books to devour. 😉 Also I was wonder if there would be like a couples battle like Luca and Kylie working together to slove evil. idk. P.S I hope your having a wonderful day 🙂
