Please welcome today's guest author Abra Ebner! Abra is the author of numerous books including Feather, Guardian, Raven, Knight Angels: Book of Love, and Parallel.
EJ: When did you begin writing?
Abra: Two years ago. I didn't like my job a whole lot, so I started writing to pass time (I know, bad ethics). Now, though, I'm glad I did it.
EJ: What brought you to the paranormal genre?
Abra: I've always loved the imaginary. I've written books that were true to the rules of science and society, but they're simply not as fun. Paranormal allows me the freedom to whimsically change my mind at any given moment.
EJ: If you could be any paranormal, or have any one supernatural talent, what would it be? Why?
Abra: Flying. Everyone says it but it's true. I love hawks, and have quite a few that live by my home. I love to watch them spiral together on an updraft. It's romantic.
EJ: Tell us why readers will enjoy your new release.
Abra: My newest release was a culmination of all the things I've always wanted out of a book. I've written it to flow like a soap opera, allowing the reader to decide who their favorite character is instead of naming one main character. To me this is also freeing because at any given time, any one character's story could become more interesting to me as the writer, making my job exceedingly more enjoyable.
EJ: If your book(s) were being made into a movie, who would you cast for the leading roles? Why?
Abra: If I take Knight Angels as an example, I'd cast:
Haley from Paramore as Emily
James McAvoy as Max
A young Rachel McAdams as Jane
and (ha ha) Prince Henry as Wes...
Odd, I know. But that's what I came up with.
Knight Angels: Book of Love by Abra Ebner.
When I think of death, I don’t see what everyone else does. There’s a soft whisper when you find it, and a voice telling us that everything will be okay. We never die alone, because they are always there watching over us, protecting us, and guiding us. They are silent, like a simple gust of wind, but it is in that wind that our world can change.
When the accident happened, and my father died, I was there. I saw them. I can’t remember their faces, but I know they weren’t human. There were two—one was the murderer, and one was my knight. I was spared. Ever since, the nightmares of death haunt me.
Somewhere deep inside, I know that I should have died.
