Welcome to my blog. It's great to see the Fans of Silenced stop on by at the home blog of the author who wrote the series. For this stop, we have an interview from a fan and their review. Enjoy!!!
1 - Did you always want to be an author?
No I didn’t always want to be an author. I loved writing but it was more for me at first. My younger sister inspired me to continue with a short story I wrote in high school for an assignment. When I finished the story she told me I had talent for writing fiction and should really consider writing more stories.
2 - What inspired you to write?
As I said in the first question my younger sister started the inspiration for writing. Now everyday life inspires me.
3 - Why did you choose to write on this particular subject?
Depression is looked at as a condition that some people think isn’t serious. Some think cutting is an act of one trying to gain attention. But these are wrong. Depression and self harm are serious conditions. I think it’s time to stop hushing the subject and it’s time to start talking about it. Education on depression and self harm need put out there. People need to be aware. They need to know the warning signs. This could potentially save the live of a loved one when the subject isn’t hushed and people talk openly about it.
4 - What would be the one suggestion you would give to the people going through depression?
Never give up. You can overcome it and there are people out there that will listen. People want to help you. You are not alone. It’s not in your head and if you are starting to have suicidal thoughts... PLEASE talk to someone you trust.
5 - Is the next book going to be out soon? ;)
The Overtaking has been released. Readers can find it on Amazon in ebook form and in paperback.
6 - Are there any other books/series that you are working on?
Yes! I’m writing several different books. I'm about to publish the story of my daughter, Dakota and our journey to her becoming an angel. Anther one I'm working on is a paranormal series. The others I’m just keeping to myself for now. It’s a while off before the others are ready to be put out there.
7 - What message would you like to give to our followers and readers?
I appreciate you taking the time to read this interview. I want to thank you all for your support. You’re the reason I write and I’m doing what I love. I wouldn’t be able to do it without you. Each and every person who has supported me and the future support system I will have ... You’re amazing.
Fan Review of Silenced:
Silenced follows the story of Amber Brown. For her life seems to be going down a downward spiral. She had to leave her town and move and on top of that she finds out that the person she called her father isn’t really her biological father. Overcome with depression and looking for a way out Amber does something that gives her an escape from all the pain and darkness. Silenced is a story that shows how depression affects a person and that it CAN be overcome. I found that I could connect with the story. Being a teenager is tougher than it was before. The pressure to do well, to score good grades, to have a good social life – is daunting. And going through all that while going through depression is harder. It doesn’t just go away and the fact that the author captured that in the book was amazing. The topic which the book is focused around is one of those close to my heart and it’s not something we should take lightly It gives an insight into the mind of a cutter... I think people need to read this book and get a perspective on what actually happens and how depression could ruin someone if it gets too far.
