Guest Author Interview: Rebecca Zanetti + Giveaway
Please welcome today's guest author Rebecca Zanetti! Rebecca is the author of Fated.
EJ: When did you begin writing?
Rebecca: Well…to be honest, we were snowed in December 2008-January 2009, and I sat down and finally started to write that book I’d been thinking about forever. I knew it was something I eventually wanted to do, but there have been lot of things in my life I wanted to pursue, and I did. Now that the floodgates are open, I can’t stop. I’ll always keep writing now.
EJ: What brought you to the paranormal genre?
Rebecca: You know, I am fascinated by the old battle between good and evil, and that theme shows up in my writing. The paranormal genre really lends itself to that theme, so I think that was the attraction for me. And I like the “how” of life. So if a vampire can teleport from one place to another, I like figuring out how that could actually happen. (String theory…which studies dimensions).
EJ: If you could be any paranormal or have any one supernatural talent, what would it be? Why?
Rebecca: It’d be cool to be immortal, so long as my friends and family were immortal too. Otherwise, I’d like to be able to teleport…just show up at the Nordstrom’s in Seattle for a day without having to get on an airplane first.
EJ: Tell us why readers will enjoy your new release.
Rebecca: FATED is sexy and action packed. The hero is the ultimate-alpha…who discovers his sweet side in a rather clumsy way when he falls in love with the rational, scientific heroine who SO doesn’t believe in fate. Of course, they’re fighting the bad guys who have developed a virus that attacks vampire mates…
EJ: If your book(s) were being made into a movie, who would you cast for the leading roles? Why?
Rebecca: I think Jason Momoa makes an awesome hero. He played the ultimate soldier on Stargate Atlantis, yet he had a surprisingly sweet side. And he was sexy as all get out. Emily Rose makes a fantastic heroine. She plays Audrey Parker on the Haven television show (adapted from a Stephen King novella). She’s smart, logical and slightly vulnerable. So I choose them. :)
Fated by Rebecca Zanetti
Cara Paulsen does not give up easily. A scientist and a single mother, she's used to fighting for what she wants, keeping a cool head, and doing whatever it takes to protect her daughter Janie. But "whatever it takes" has never before included a shotgun wedding to a dangerous-looking stranger with an attitude problem. . .
Sure, the mysterious Talen says that he's there to protect Cara and Janie. He also says that he's a three-hundred-year-old vampire. Of course, the way he touches her, Cara might actually believe he's had that long to practice. . .
Thank you Rebecca for joining us here today at From the Shadows!
