Deep in the backwoods of North Dakota, Sarah Ross is searching for a missing child when she is attacked by a glowing-eyed, transparent creature.
Using mysterious abilities, Sarah escapes, only to run directly into Evan Valente, a handsome, charismatic stranger who helps her back to safety. But why is Evan out in the forest so early in the morning?
Sarah learns her eyes bear the mark of the Indigo Child, an evolved human with the ability to feel the emotions of others; unfortunately, her indigo aura is highly desirable to those who wish to steal her powerful essence.
Soon, Sarah falls deeply in love with Evan and wants nothing more than to follow her heart, but she can’t ignore the lingering feeling that Evan is hiding a terrible secret. The deeper she digs, the more danger she faces, forcing her to face the darkest, innermost parts of her soul.
I live in the country on the Canadian prairie with my family where my stories are inspired by the dead things that appear at my doorstep on a daily basis.
What three words best describe Sarah?
Empath. Indigo Child.
What are three things Evan would never have in his pocket?
Evan would never have a pink umbrella from a girlie drink, a receipt for a romance novel, or a black comb in his pocket.
Who is your greatest creative influences?
Cassandra Clare. I absolutely adore her characters and writing. They’re so flawed and yet so loveable. Jace is the ultimate hot, tortured, angsty hero. This is what I strive for in my own writing.
What do you need in order to write?
Silence. I can’t write with the TV on, my kids chatting, hubby texting in the corner. I need quiet, otherwise I’m too distractible—wait—what’s that …?
What is the last book that you read that knocked your socks off?
Fifty Shades of Gray. I’ve never read anything like that before, and I only read it because I was pitching a literary agent who loved it. It’s not the writing that is most compelling to me per se, because I see many areas where the writing could have been tightened up. It was the fabulous voice of the author that really shone through each and every page, and I was immediately hooked.
If you had to pick one book that turned you on to reading, which would it be?
Charlotte’s Web. That’s the first chapter book I read, and I’ll never forget how much I loved Charlotte, or how devastated I was when she died. I still have that book, and despite being dog-eared and sepia-coloured, it is very dear to my heart.
What do you like to do when you aren’t writing?
Read. Work. Play with my kids. Hang out and talk with my hubby.
