Guest Author Interview: Lori Pescatore + Giveaway
Please welcome today's guest author Lori Pescatore! Lori is the author of Human Blend.
EJ: When did you begin writing?
Lori: I've actually been writing all my life. My early writings were of fan-fiction even before the internet. I would create stories of my friends meeting their favorite celebrity. I've also always written poems for family members. I've even had a short story published in scholastic when I was in high-school.
EJ: What brought you to the paranormal genre?
Lori: I like to write what I like to read. Writing in the paranormal realm is so wonderful because you can make your characters into fantastical creatures. In Human Blend I created a creature that I don't think has ever been written before, at least to my knowledge. I love having that freedom.
EJ: If you could be any paranormal or have any one supernatural talent, what would it be? Why?
Lori: Well, the main character in my book has the ability to heal, I would love to be able to do that. Moving things with my mind would be pretty cool too. Ah, the possibilities.
EJ: Tell us why readers will enjoy your new release.
Lori: Human Blend is fun read that creates memorable characters and has an interesting storyline. There is everything from romance, supernatural, and a bit of science fiction that will take the reader on a thrilling ride. It is a first in a trilogy that will be a fascinating read.
EJ: If your book(s) were being made into a movie, who would you cast for the leading roles? Why?
Lori: Ah, good question. I am thinking Kristen Bell for Laney/Julie my lead female. She is suppose to be young and beautiful. I was thinking Jesse McCartney for Austin I've seen some earlier acting work of his in the movie Keith and I think he would make a perfect Austin. William Gregory Lee for Dr. Eli Elsworth for the looks alone and Orlando Bloom for Marcus who needs to be handsome and mischievous.
Human Blend by Lori Pescatore.
Marion, Virginia seemed like a nice place to live a normal life, but she is not a normal girl. Laney has special abilities that keep her looking over her shoulder as she makes her escape from the men who had kidnapped her. A young doctor's interest is piqued when he witnesses her mysteriously curing a young child's illness. He befriends her due to his growing fascination with uncovering the true nature of her abilities, but not without harboring secrets of his own. Laney's budding relationship with a local boy puts both of them in danger when the men she was hiding from find her. All of their lives will change forever as ancient secrets become unearthed.
