A great Romantic Halloween Read...
Here is a look at the back cover:
A dull roar. That's all I could hear. Souls. That's all I could see. So many people. Some good. Some bad. Some breathing. Some barely breathing. All souls. It was funny what you could see when you stood in the middle of the Emergency Room. Who survived. Who didn't. All of them, every one, a soul. A soul for the taking. So begins your introduction to the floating, clustered world of souls that will have such influence on Sophia, the young Hispanic American girl who has just lost her closest ally, her grandmother Abuela. It is just after the funeral, at the cemetery, where Sophia meets the tall, almost angelic man who will play such an unexpected role in her life. A love story. A fantasy. An adventure. In Love with Death tells a tale of "fate" far beyond the normal meaning of that little four letter word. How else would you explain why Sophia falls so deeply in love with death?
How did you start your writing career?
I had just been laid off from my current employment as a preschool teacher, I'd been looking for work for weeks and couldn't find anything. As I was sitting all day, doing nothing, I was reading through the Twilight Series for the gazilionth time (Which I happen to love by the way). And, felt tired, so I laid down for a nap. As I was dozing off, I thought to myself, “If they can do it; Why can't I?”, and just as I thought that, the opening scene of my story came rushing into my mind. I jumped up to put it on paper, and everything immediately started pouring. The story took on a life of it's own. And, I loved every minute of it! I was done within a month! It was incredibly exciting, as I had been told for so long that “Writing is waste of time” and “You'll never make it in that field!” along with many other negative things, as I have always displayed a love for the art of writing. It was FANTASTIC to prove those individuals wrong!
Tell us about your current release.
I currently have two releases. The first is “In Love with Death”, and the second is called “La Encantadora/The Enchantress” they are two parts to a collection. “In Love with Death” being the first of the two.
Tell us about your next release.
I am working on 3 more stories. The first I've titled “Finding Death” and it is part 3 of the collection. The next is called “MarcoAntonio and Amaryllis” and it is an adult medieval romance, and the last I've titled “Fate, Love and Desire: Romantic Minis” and it's a compilation of several short stories that I've written.
What does your significant other and family think of your writing career?
I have no significant other (I don't know why... Lol), my parent's just don't get it, but my kids are nothing but supportive. It's amazing seeing them imitate me, as they also try to write their own stories or art. The sad thing is they say “Mom, I know I'm not as good as you, but...” then that's when I tell them that they are probably a millions times better than me but just don't know it yet.
How do you describe your writing style?
I have two distinct writing styles. The first is “first person basis” and the second is very much “narrative”... but for the most part it's just me! Lol
As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
Well to “fit in” like every child in my school, I wanted to be a Veterinarian or a Doctor. Yet, deep down inside I really wanted to be 3 things; A singer, a teacher or a writer. And I accomplished most of those. However, the singer part, I found to be much harder than anticipated. Lol
What is your favorite meal?
I know it's ridiculously unhealthy, but the answer to that question is, Fried Chicken and Chocolate! Not on top of each other. Lol... But, I can have Fried Chicken and Chocolate almost every day without protest! Yuuuumo!!
What do you do to unwind and relax?
Unwind, relax; What's that? Lol... Just kidding! My favorite things to do to unwind and relax are play with my kids, curl up on the couch very comfy and cozy like and watch a few movies, pick up a book, or host a party (yep, that's right... host a party). Most people find that to be a chore, but I'm very much the “hostess” at heart, as I love to cook and all that.
THANKS FOR LOOKING!
