Dark Secrets by AM Hudson: Character Interview: Bewitching Tour Stop



Character: Ara-Rose (protagonist in the Dark Secrets series) We don’t call her a heroine, because she’s not really a heroine until the last few books. In the beginning, she’s really just a confused and very frightened, naïve and easily-led girl.


Where do you dream of traveling to and why?

 I’d love to go back to Australia.

Who is your favorite author?

 Don’t really have one.


What do you think makes a good story?

 A fight for love, and lovers torn apart. Betrayal and lies and secrets, all tossed together with some mystery and a few battles, but resolved in the end to be a happy conclusion.

Tell us about your family.

 My dad lives in America. I grew up in Aus with my mom. I have an annoying bro named Sam. He’s 14, you get what I mean. And a stepmom who used to be a psychiatrist. Yeah, great combo. Not.

What was the scariest moment of your life?

 Being kidnapped by a vampire.

What books have most influenced your life?

 The Very Hungry Caterpillar. It encouraged me to eat healthy foods.

What book are you reading now?

 Aide-Memoire d’Auress, which is a book of Markings recorded by the old Lilithian queen.

As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?

 A teacher, like my dad.

What are your favorite TV shows?

 Neighbors (Aussie TV show) and Vampire Diaries.

What songs are most played on your Ipod?

 Anything by Muse and Thirty Seconds to Mars.

What is your favorite meal?

 Brownies. Yes, that is a meal!

What group did you hang out with in high school?

 The popular kids. Until I moved.

Do you play any sports?

 Ha! No. I used to run track, though.

What are you passionate about these days?


If you could apologize to someone in your past, who would it be?  My mom. You’ll see why when you read the book.

What would we find under your bed?

 Unfinished homework, shoes, probably dirty laundry.

Tell us about your favorite restaurant.

 Betty’s Burger Cafe. It has the best burgers, fries, shakes and even pool tables. Plus it’s the first place David took me on a date.

What makes you happy?

 Sitting in the sun

If I came to visit early in the morning would you impress me as being more like a chirpy bird or a grumpy bear?

 Grumpy bear. Until I’ve eaten.


What one word best describes you?



Do your friends think you are an introvert or an extravert? Why?  They think I’m annoying. I don’t think they ever get as far as to see me as either introvert or extrovert. But I’d sya it depends on the day.


Do you have any special routines or rituals?

 Aside from brushing my teeth at night, not really.


What is something people would be surprised to know about you?  I wish I was the kind of girl who loved just one man for all her life.


You just won a huge lottery what is the first thing you'll buy?

 Mike’s mom and dad a house on the beach.


Dark Secrets
AM Hudson

Genre: paranormal romance

Since their release in 2011, Books 1 & 2 from the Dark Secrets series have come together, presented as one great book for one low price. 

How can you be attracted to a guy who just said he wants to kill you?

Ara-Rose asks herself the same question. She’s been torn away from her old life, thrown into a new one in a new country, and in the midst of death, heartache and depression, she finds herself in love with a vampire—one who kills people with his teeth!

But the vampire is forbidden to fall for this human, and at the point Ara-Rose decides she can’t live without him, he pulls away and leaves her falling back to the darkness he woke her from. She will be caught up in a century-old feud among brothers, and the fight for love becomes a fight for her life.

The only question now is whether her beloved vampire will find her in time, or leave her to face a destiny he triggered with their first kiss.
