Welcome, Carly. Please tell us about your current release.
Finding My Faith is the second book in the Six Savior Series, the first book being The Light Within Me. I had so much fun writing Finding My Faith, I was almost disappointed when it was time to send it out into the world. I will miss Rayner and Faith. Here is a brief book blurb:
Rayner is one of the Six Savior Warriors who has a special ability, one that weighs on him like a curse. He can see spirits trapped in between life and their final resting place. Because he can’t do much to help them, he studiously ignores them. He concentrates, instead, on working with his fellow warriors to right the wrongs caused by the evil criminals from his home planet.
Faith is a bit of a hellraiser who grew up in a small Northern Arizona town. Yearning for more out of her life, she moves to Phoenix, Arizona at the age of twenty-three where she is kidnapped and almost killed.
When Rayner sees Faith in her spirit form while investigating a lead in Phoenix, his attraction to her is immediate, yet he follows his own personal code and ignores her cry for attention. When he realizes that she may be a stepping stone to getting him home to his own universe, he engages Faith and begins to use her as a means to an end: going home.
As the attraction grows stronger, Rayner finds himself breaking all sorts of self-set rules, as well as the code of ethics set by him and his fellow warriors. When Faith nears death, Rayner realizes that he must do everything in his power to save her, because if he doesn’t, he may just lose himself.
What inspired you to write this book?
Last year we took a trip down to Tucson where we toured a decommissioned missile silo that was active during the Cold War. It was amazing to see the computers from back then - it looked like something a first grader would come up with while messing around with some boxes and crayons. The tour was given by one of the guys who showed up everyday to work wondering if he would be given the orders to blow Russia to smithereens. They had a program where you could stay the night in the silo, and I began thinking about actually living in one. What would it be like to live nine stories underground? Would it be claustrophobic? What if the place was fixed up really, really nicely with the best of everything? From there, things just snowballed, and the Six Saviors series was born.
For this book, I woke up one morning and wondered what it would be like to see spirits of people who hadn't passed over to the "other side." Usually my first thought is "coffee," but that day it was dead people. LOL!
What exciting story are you working on next?
I am working on the third installment of the series. It features Hudson, one of the warriors, and a human named Beverly. Trouble, drama, and romance will ensue :)
When did you first consider yourself a writer?
I have always written. I made up stories as a child, wrote for the Yearbook in high school, worked on the school newspaper in college, and then spent many years writing business materials for our business. During that time I also wrote fiction, but never did anything with it.
Do you write full-time? If so, what's your work day like? If not, what do you do other than write and how do you find time to write?
I would love to write full time, but we also own a business, so that is an impossibility. I write mainly at night and on the weekends.
What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?
I don't know if it's interesting, but it's a proven fact that Hershey's Kisses improve creativity. ;)
What did you want to be when you grew up?
This is the God’s Honest Truth: A Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader - LOL!
Anything additional you want to share with the readers?
My trainer wants me to start training to enter Strong Man (Woman) competitions. He says I'm freakishly strong, and I'm actually considering doing it!
Go for it! At the least it'll give you something new for the muse to play with! Thanks for stopping by today, Carly.
