Seventeen is a life changing age for Emma Wise. As her family's sole survivor in a car crash, she is left with a broken arm and a few scrapes and bruises. But these are only outward marks; inside, her heart is broken and the pieces scattered. Whisked away to Alaska, to an aunt she’s never met, Emma starts over. Secrets unveil themselves and now…she doesn't even know who or what she is. A centuries old prophecy places Emma in the heart of danger. Creatures of horrifying and evil proportions are after her, and it will take Emma, her aunt, and six, gorgeously captivating Guardians to keep her safe. But, if she can survive until her eighteenth birthday... things will change.
Thank you to Cameo Renae for allowing me to read this first! This cover is completely amazing!
When Emma Wise wakes up in the hospital and is told that she was in an car accident. When she ask about her parents she is told that they are dead. She is 17 and doesn’t know what is going to happen, until she is told that she has an aunt that want to take her in. Emma has never hurt of this aunt, and the biggest thing is she lives in Alaska. She thinks her life is going to suck until she meets her escort Kade Anders. He is very handsome and there is something with him, something she can't put her finger on. This story will take you on a ride! There are so many twist and turns, it will make your head spin. I love a book that keeps me reading long after bedtime and this book did, until I finished! There are also many parts where I screamed, “What!?!” I highly recommend this book, but it is highly addictive!
What made you want to be an author?
The first time I read The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis, I fell in love. I walked with Lucy into the Wardrobe. I met Mr. Tumnus, and had tea with him. I walked with Aslan and watched him die. That’s what triggered it. I wanted to create my own worlds, and take my own adventures. I’ve always had a wild imagination, and have been known to daydream. So, writing those things down, was a good thing.
1: I love Dr. Pepper.
2: I’ve been married for 22 years.
3: I was an All-Star soccer player in High School.
Can you tell us a little about Hidden Wings?
Hidden Wings is the story of seventeen year old Emma Wise. A tragic accident throws her normal world into a spin, and it seems as if everything is crashing down around her. The life she was living, up until the accident, was all a façade, and soon…secrets, murder, and an age old prophecy are revealed. And… some gorgeous Guardians.
What was the hardest part about writing Hidden Wings?
The hardest part is always the beginning and ending. The beginning is what hooks everyone in, and the ending is what makes them want to come back for more. Getting it right is tough.
What’s your favorite scene you have written?
Right now, my favorite scene is the ending of In My Dreams.
I know you just finished Broken Wings, can you give us a little sneak peak? J
Hmmmm… Sneaky question, Khelsey! LOL But because you asked…
Here’s a teaser from the upcoming novel: Broken Wings
Is there a song that makes you want to dance? If so which one?
I am listening to one right now… J-Lo ~ On the Floor. Always makes me wanna dance!
How did you find your publisher?
I actually saw them first on FB. I had some author friends who were published through them, and I ABSOLUTELY loved the name. Crushing Hearts and Black Butterfly Publishing. How awesome is that!? So, I submitted to them.
Do you have any advice for aspiring authors?
I’ve had this question a lot and it will always be the same. NEVER give up!!! At times it’s hard and you wonder if you’re good enough. I’ve doubted my writing abilities, and myself, so many times. But, there might be someone out there who will be touched by your words. Write what’s in your head and in your heart, and just let the words flow. Your words…because YOU will always be true to yourself.
Thank you for the interview!
