Being dead sucks, or so Vincent Asher believes. He’s spent the last two hundred years of his death battling vampires because his boss won’t let him kill demons. Known as a force called the Wraith, Vincent has become bored with preventing the apocalypse. When he hopes his boss will give him a more exciting assignment, he gets the shock of his afterlife. He must protect the woman who killed him.
Bryna Wildrose accidently killed the only man she ever loved. In a self-imposed death sentence, she’s spent the last ten years of her life trying to get herself killed. She never meant to kill Vincent, and the guilt is eating her alive. A vampire gives her a dire warning. The Wraith is coming for her. She can run, or she can let death take her.
Given no choice, Vincent goes back in time to find the one woman he loved more than life itself, but when he expected to torment her for causing his death, he learns nothing is what he believed it to be. Real love never dies, but Vincent’s power might not be enough to keep Bryna alive.

What is your favorite part of the story, Bring Me to Life: Time Walkers Book 1?
Without giving anything away? I love how Vincent owns his mistakes. He’s made a few colossal ones, but he fully owns them, but refuses to let anyone saddle him with the mistakes of others. I also love how Bryna appears to have given up, but can’t seem to let herself fall into a fatal tailspin while continuing to help people around her, even though she helps in unconventional ways without feeling sorry for herself.
How long did it take you to write Bring Me to Life?
Ha! I keep meticulous writing records. I started the book November 21, 2010. I wrote the first 50,000 words by November 29, and then life distracted me. I didn’t pick the book up again until May 2, 2014. I had the last 10,000-ish words written by the next evening. So, depending on how you look at it, I took either 11 days or 3 ½ years.
What inspired you to write your first book?
I have a fantasy world I’ve been working on for years. I can’t remember a time I haven’t been working on that world. One day I sat down and decided I was going to learn how to write a novel so I could tell the story of that world. The world is called Elburon and I still work on it from time to time while I work on other stories and in other worlds.
What is your favorite book that you wrote?
My current favorite book also has my all-time favorite character. The novel is contracted with the Lyrical Press imprint of Kensington Corp. It doesn’t have a release date yet, but is in the publisher’s editing phase. It’s called Undying Hope and will be the first book in the Undying Chronicles series. The character is named Quinn Donovan.
Who or what inspired you to be a writer?
My paternal grandmother. She wrote poetry for most of her life. When I was a child, she wrote a fairytale for my siblings and me. That was the point I realized I might be able to write fairytales. My writing grew from there.
How do you overcome writer’s block?
I do something else creative. I like to crochet. Knitting and I don’t get along, but I love to try. I also have other various craft projects on my To Do’s list. I find working with my hands frees my mind to work on my next story without the pressure of having to get something written. I go through what I call Creative Seasons. When I try to fight passed it and write anyway, the writing is always flat, but if I listen to my natural rhythm, I don’t suffer writer’s block. I simply take the break my brain is telling me I need, and when I come back to it, I write like mad for a few months, and then it’s time to put it away again.
What do you prefer paperback, hardcover, or ebooks?
I prefer ebooks. I am dyslexic. The text-to-speech feature on my 3rd Generation Kindle allows me to “read” at the rate I want to read instead of having to stumble through a novel feeling as if I can’t grasp simple written concepts.
