Author Interview – Tamara Hart Heiner

Who designed the cover? Steve Novak! He’s done all my book covers and he’s simply very talented. Love his work!

What was the hardest part about writing this book? I made a mistake when I started the book. I thought I could write a romance. So I wrote the book as a romance. When I finished, I thought the whole story was boring and rather flat. I didn’t want to read it, so why would anyone else? I decided I better stick with thrillers, because that’s what I’m good at. And I threw in a serial killer. It took a lot of work but I’m extremely pleased with the book now!

Will you write others in this same genre? I’ve had enough people threaten my future as a writer if I don’t write more books for this main character that I’ve decided to make a series of the book. Rather exciting, actually. I have an additional four books plotted, but it will be the kind of series where each novel is a story in and of itself, not dependent on the others. Like the Stephanie Plum books.

How much of the book is realistic? The book takes place during modern times in a normal high school with a normal girl. There’s a serial killer, which could very well be realistic. But it also revolves around Jayne’s psychic powers and her more-than-mortal bloodline. Definitely not realistic.

Have you included a lot of your life experiences, even friends, in the plot? No, not at all. At least not in this book. My PERILOUS series has lots of life and friend experiences in it.

How important do you think villains are in a story? Extremely! In fact my villains are usually so multi-faceted that they deserve their own story. No book is complete without a villain!

Young adult romantic suspense novel.

Visions of death plague Jayne, who thinks watching her boyfriend die is the worst that could happen to her. But when she witnesses a murder, Jayne finds herself caught up in a dangerous world of intrigue and suspense.

As it turns out, she is not the only one doing the stalking. The killer is on to her, and all of her visions of the dying don’t reveal how her life will end. Somehow, she must stop the murderer before he arranges Jayne’s own inevitable death.
