Excerpt One : Leaving London

 

His parted lips are pressed hard against my neck in a long stabbing kiss, hot tongue flicking forcefully against my vulnerable skin. I can’t move. An overwhelming force burns through my veins and renders me tethered to this enigmatic man. Intense shards of golden light pierce my tightly closed eyes. Encapsulated by an energy so strong, so bright, so warm, so sensual, so right, it tingles and pulses from the ends of my hair to the tips of my toes. I want him to touch me, to bring that powerful kiss to my ready willing mouth.

Pressure builds against my chest. He pushes into me, it hurts, suffocating, intense, the energy has changed, possessed by foreboding darkness. Amber light replaced by violent flames of crimson. I struggle, trying to get free, desperate to open my eyes but it’s no use I am trapped. Strong hands are gripping my neck and sending shockwaves of pain through my body as he lifts me clear from the ground.

“Arghhh.” With a strangled cry I startle myself awake, snapping free from another rendition of a vision that keeps tormenting my tired mind.

 

Squinting, I look around the station. Disoriented as I glance to my watch and realise exhaustion must have finally forced me to sleep. It has been almost 4 hours since I slunk to the floor and my eyes still sting from relentless crying. It’s dark outside now and the bright lights hanging from the vast steel beams above are worsening the throbbing pain in my head. Tears force their way down my cheeks again. Silent sobs of anguish, humiliation and disappointment with myself for being so stupid are disguised as heartache at the loss of a relationship that was apparently never more than a facade. My dry throat is constricting as I cough and almost choke. At least no one pays any attention to my spluttering this time. It was embarrassing enough when the cleaner felt the overwhelming urge to keep asking me what was wrong earlier, constantly invading my privacy with those deep brown pity eyes when I first slumped down to the ground. Urgh. I just want to get home without drawing any more attention to my sorry self.

“Idiot.” I mumble. I’m such an idiot. Sitting here in the middle of a busy London train station balling my eyes out like the world is ending. Letting him get to me like this. It’s Stupid. I’m Stupid. I’m such a Stupid Idiot.

That sick feeling rises in my throat again at the memory of how I threw myself at him on our last night together. The bastard must have been laughing at me the whole time. Breathing heavily through my nose I clutch my case closer to my chest. I’m completely wedged in the gap between the old closed news stall and the back of the touristy union jack tack gift store. I’ve found a dark corner, a void to escape to while the world passes me by.

Interview

Where are you from? Tell us a little about yourself!

I was born and raised in Wirral (near Liverpool) and having moved around the UK, settled in wonderful Poole Dorset since 2002. Home is certainly where my heart is and I adore and appreciate our miles of soft golden sand, shallow turquoise water and watching the stunning sunset over Brownsea island as silhouetted boat masts gently sway in Poole Harbour. I have set the location of Reach For Your Light in Dorset so my characters get to enjoy this glorious part of the country too.

 

Tell us about your book? How did it get started?

My little boy Aarlonzo died in 2006 and I found that writing things down was very therapeutic. I started reading the paranormal romance genre in 2011 and decided to write my own series dedicated to my son in heaven. Because I run my design business full time http://www.biz-brand-buzz.co.ukas well as http://www.supportivebusinessmums.co.uk and http://www.prettyinspiring.co.uk/and I’m now a single mum of 3 too, I have my hands full and only have time to write at night. The book has evolved and been improved during the several years I’ve been writing it and I’m so excited to now be able to share it with the world!

 

How do you create your characters?

As a designer, when I create my characters I can see them smell them feel them, know where they live, what their childhood memories are, what their likes and dislikes are and who they are going to love or hate. I commissioned bespoke illustrations to my specifications for the characters rather than going down the photographic route as I didn’t want to make do with an image that wasn’t quite the character in my head.

 

Tell us about a few of your favourite characters.

Oh I love them all. Emma is the leading lady and most of the story is from her perspective. She’s very much like me 15 years ago haha. She’s beautiful sweet loving and rushes into love (often with someone who is no good for her.) Beth is her gorgeous best friend and although they don’t live close by any more they are always there to support each other. Katy is cool and creative. (and she has my blue hair!). THE MEN! Well, there is super sexy badass Nic Fellowes, tall dark handsome Jeremy White, hot hunk mysterious Jamie Jaxx and charismatic Denzil Jayze with the mohawk and seascape eyes.

 

How do you get your ideas for writing?

I’m a creative in every way and the plot just sort of wove itself once I had started to develop the characters. It’s inspired by a mix of the sorts of series I like such as Heroes and Alphas mixed with the Modern Romance genre. There are lots of parts inspired by first hand experiences too, places I’ve lived, jobs I’ve done, terrible bosses I’ve worked for before becoming self employed and that sort of thing! Many of the characters have traits or the looks of friends or ex boyfriends from over the years. Denzil reflects my ex hubby a lot. (He knows and thinks it’s cool!)

 

What makes your book special?

Reach For Your Light is a hot paranormal romance with a difference. It’s got love, action, mystery, hot heroes and addictive bad boys. A roller-coaster ride of hot sex mind games and supernatural visions that will leave you hungry for more. In a unique twist the book features real small businesses and products created for the story which are now available as official merchandise too. I love to support small businesses so took the opportunity to provide free novel promotion for talented creatives I recommend.
