Is Bristol Blackburn about to meet the love of her life...or her killer?
After the death of her parents, Bristol Blackburn's life is thrown into chaos and she's forced to move to Spirit, a small town where shadows are stirring. As she learns to navigate her new school and figures out how to keep her psychic abilities secret from her family, Bristol comes face to face with the boy who makes a regular appearance in her dreams: the gorgeous, possibly deadly, Payne McKnight. Soon she’ll find out if Payne will be the love of her life, or the end of it — and she has no idea which possibility scares her more.

Do you plan all your characters out before you start a story or do they develop as you write?
A little of both. I do plan them out. I see them in my head, jot down in my notes certain traits. I hear their voice in my head well before I write, but once I begin, they also take on a life of their own. Things occur to me. In Vision of Shadows, I’ve got a character named Maggie. She’s the MC’s best friend. I knew right away that she was going to be a little insecure, a lot zany and just an awful lot of fun, but somewhere along the way I decided that her clothes would be as colorful as her personality.
One of your favorite quotes.
“Looks like we’re gonna have ourselves a ROCK AND ROLL PARTY TONIGHT!! Paul Stanley, KISS Alive. I’ve heard that in my head since I was kid and I first heard that record!
Do you have a website recommendation for other writers?
Absolute Write Water Cooler.
Great place for writers. They have places where you can brainstorm ideas, get help on query letters, specific genre help, questions on syntax and grammar, get technical help and on and on. It’s also a great place to network. That’s how I met Eden Plantz who signed me with Entranced. Along with fellow Entranced author Nicole Camp who nudged me in that direction.
What type of book have you always wanted to write?
Well, I’ve got a really long book called The Dragon Club which I love but it needs major revision. I would also really love to write a great zombie book. I’m a huge fan of the walking dead as well as the zombie books by Joe McKinney. I’ve read a lot of zombie books. Some are really bad, cliché with nothing but the idea of mindless zombies roaming around eating people. Others are truly fantastic because there’s a story there that’s original like Aria Kane’s Once Upon a Darkness and Isaac Marion’s Warm Bodies.

 What is your favorite scene in your new release?
This is a hard question for me because there are so many that come to mind, but I think I’ll go with the scene where Bristol is in the woods alone with Payne. There’s a lot of humor, sexual tension and sadness all wrapped together.

What’s your favorite body part of the opposite sex?
Eyes. I love a great pair of eyes.

What does love feel like?
It feels like being home.

Hey, baby! What’s your sign?
Gemini. Not that I think that’s important.

If you could take a romantic trip, where would it be?
A cruise to Alaska.

How did you meet your significant other?
My mother saw a singles add in a local paper. She pointed it out to me, thinking the person would be a good fit. Hey, you can’t argue with Mom!

Boxers or Briefs?
I actually wear boxer, briefs.

Boxers or Briefs?
If I want to finish, planner.

Coffee or tea?

Vanilla or chocolate?
Vanilla. I’m the only one in my house who would say that.

Cat or dog?Dog. I’ve got 3. A black lab named Toby, a dark brindle named Molly and an Old English Bulldog puppy named Lilly.
Backpacking or luxury hotel?
Hotel. All the way.
