Were-creatures, horror, romance, suspense, this book has it all! Why not scroll down and find out why you may have a new series obsession…we’ve even got a guest post from the author, about what famous people she would include at a dinner party!
Twisted Bloodlines
Megan has never had what most would call a normal life.
Her childhood and teen years were spent on the run with her family, hiding from a horror so great it defines their world. Friends and homes are traded at a moment’s notice to escape from their worst nightmares.
Years pass, and her mother settles down with her new step-father, a kind man who does his best to protect them. Life lulls into a safe pace, and Megan finally feels as though she has control of her future for the first time in her life. But that peace is shattered with the arrival of a new family member, one that bears a striking resemblance to a savior of her past…
Confused by her deep emotional connection to him, things unravel fast. She learns that the people she lives with, even her own family, are not what they seem. Her only friend who helped her piece her life back together changes overnight, and she is left dealing with the fallout on her own…
As events unfold, Megan finds herself face to face with the horror that has haunted her since childhood. But will she be able to escape from her twisted bloodline?
And now for the guest post!
Which Five Famous People Would Be At My Dinner
I would choose Richard Laymon (horror author) because I am a huge fan of his books. I suspect he would be a very entertaining guest, especially in a dimly lit room, or even dinner by candlelight where he would probably have many creepy tales to share and entertain us—or possibly give us nightmares. The meal I have chosen in his honour would be oxtail soup, since he is fond of beasts, and a side of escargots just because I find snails creepy like his books.*grin*
Jack The Ripper would be guest number two, because at least it would be one way of identifying him. I also used to love reading about him when I was younger, I found it quite fascinating, although I’m not sure being in the same room as him is such a wise idea… well, let’s hope the beef heart stew I have chosen for him will be enough to satisfy him for the evening, best to use the plastic cutlery for the meal.
William Shakespeare is next on the list. I would personally like to give him a telling off for making my teenage years hell in English class, and I would also like to ask him why he was so obsessed with tragedies. The main reason I invited him is that I’m a sucker for poetry. ‘Can’t write it myself, but who better to hear it from than Shakespeare himself? Let’s hope he enjoys the good old fashioned tripe and onions I picked out for him, we wouldn’t want to become the cast of a new tragedy. *grin*
Bruce Willis is an all-time-favourite of mine. He first caught my eye when he starred in Moonlighting. I was a dedicated viewer for years, and then he became more known for his role in the Die Hard films. I think he would be a rather amusing dinner guest since he has been amusing me on screen for many years, and well, what can I say? I’m a big fan. I decided on steak, chips and peas as his meal. It seems like a manly sort of meal, and rather fitting for him. Let’s put away the expensive china though, he is well known for chaos and destruction. *giggle*
Chris Tucker is also a fave of mine. His role in Rush Hour was just too funny, and if you have ever stuck around long enough after the film has finished, you get to see the mistakes they made while filming—which I found more amusing than the actual film. If he is indeed as funny in life as he is on screen, then he would be my ultimate choice as a dinner guest. The meal I have chosen for Chris is big mac and fries. He seems like a fast food junkie. I could be wrong, but let’s face it, I don’t know the guy but that’s my instinct.
More About The Author
Linda Jackson
I was born and raised in London, which is where I still live now with my husband and children. As a child I always had my nose stuck in a book. I started out reading mysteries such as Nancy Drew and then soon moving onto Agatha Christie. I then found a love of the horror genre, Richard Laymon being my favourite author among a few others. When a friend introduced me to the paranormal romance/fantasy genre I soon became hooked, building myself a very impressive to read pile and a long list of favourite authors. I would say both of these genres have influenced in the way I write and combining them is where I came up with the idea for my book.
