excerpt

I rush back up the dark stairwell, shoving the key into the doorknob. It takes a minute for the lock to click and I push myself inside the apartment, securing every lock and deadbolt. I can’t stay here in Hutchinson, Kansas any longer. Pulling my phone from my purse, I text Weston.
Tatiana is here. It’s not safe for me.
I grab the few belongings that have any value to me, sentimental or otherwise, and shove it into my shoulder bag, including the stolen silver necklace. It has value and if I’m forced on the run, I’ll need money to survive.
I know.
What did Weston mean he knew Tatiana is at the bar? Had he seen her? Is he there?
What do you mean, you know? I type into the phone. If he saw her, why didn’t he warn me? I can’t go down out the front door and it’s only a matter of time until she finds me just a few feet away. I grow restless waiting for an answer.
The phone buzzes and displays an incoming call from Weston. "Wes, tell me you’re here." The only thing to do is hop in his car and drive into the night, far from Kansas.
A female’s voice bubbles with laughter. "Oh he’s coming darling, but you should know he won’t get here in time. Amazing how easy it is to clone a phone number and steal his service. The advancements Stem Tech has made is encouraging."

 


 

authorinterview

Did you always wanted to be a writer? If not what did you want to be?

I never considered writing as a career when I was younger, but I did love writing. I majored in communication, and wanted to run a television network! That way I could decide what shows were on. Realistically though, I ran my own photography studio for a few years, photographing weddings and children's portraits, until I was professionally published. Now I write full-time

How long did it take to get your first book published?

About three months. I sent it to quite a few publishers and agents. I had two publishers make me an offer, I went with Lazy Day Publishing.

What is the name of your latest book, and if you had to summarize it in less than 20 words what would you say?

Stolen Art - Conspiracies, kidnappings, secrets. If you like science fiction then get ready to love Stolen Art.

Who is your publisher? Or do you self-publish?

My publisher for Stolen Art is Lazy Day Publishing. I also am with Booktrope and Blushing Books.

What can we expect from you in the future?  ie More books of the same genre? Books of a different genre?

Lately I've been writing adult romance under the pen name, Ravyn Rayne.

What genre would you place your books into?

Science Fantasy. A lot of my books have fantastical elements in addition to science fiction. Stolen Art is a little more sci-fi based with less fantasy. It's rooted in today's society which makes it a little more shocking.

Do you choose a title first, or write the book then choose the title?

I definitely write the book first before choosing a title. Sometimes it comes midway through the book. Other times it's after the novel is written and I'm still coming up with a title.

Which format of book do you prefer, eBook, hardback, or paperback?

I love paperback books, especially when it comes to getting an author to sign it. You can't do that with an eBook. (And sadly no, Authorgraph doesn't have the same appeal to me).

What is your favorite book and Why?  Have you read it more than once?

I love The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. Yes, I've read it twice.

Your favorite singer/group is?

Katy Perry but I also like Taylor Swift.

Your favorite Author is?

John Green

Do you prefer to write in the morning or at night?

Definitely the morning. I try and write during typical business hours. It doesn't always work that way, but if you set your mind to something and have a goal in mind, it's often attainable.

What are you currently reading?

I just bought In the Palace of Lazar by Alta Hensley. I'm looking forward to starting that one tonight.

Favorite place you've traveled?

Melbourne, Australia.

Where do you want to travel?

Paris, France.
