Paranormal Guest Author: Jessica Sorensen
Please welcome today's paranormal guest author Jessica Sorensen. Jessica is the author of The Fallen Star.
EJ: When did you begin writing?
Jessica: I began writing short stories when I was old enough to write. In high school I moved on to poetry. It wasn’t until a couple of years ago that I decided to try my hand at writing a book, which eventually turned into The Fallen Star.
EJ: What brought you to the paranormal genre?
Jessica: When I was young, I had this fascination with the paranormal genre. I would write stories full of ghosts, witches, and faeries. It’s a fascination that has stuck with me throughout the years.
EJ: If you could be any paranormal or have any one supernatural talent, what would it be? Why?
Jessica: I would have to say teleportation because I love to travel, and it would make things so much easier.
EJ: Tell us why readers will enjoy your new release.
Jessica: The Fallen Star is a unique story full of unique characters. The main character, Gemma, has only recently been able to experience emotions. When she is thrown into a world of Death Walkers, Foreseers, vampires, and other paranormal characters, she discovers she’s not just a normal teenage girl, but something more important, and is left struggling to come to terms with who she is.
This story is action packed and full of suspense, mystery, betrayal and little bit of humor. There are twists and turns that will keep you reading until the end.
EJ: If your book(s) were being made into a movie, who would you cast for the leading roles? Why?
Jessica: This is a hard one because I have a picture in my head of what my characters look like, and it’s difficult to find people that match that picture. But I think an actress that comes close to how I picture Gemma is Willa Holland. And I think Steven R. McQueen would make a good Alex.
The Fallen Star (Fallen Star, #1) by Jessica Sorensen.
For eighteen year-old Gemma, life has never been normal. Up until recently, she has been incapable of feeling emotion. And when she's around Alex, the gorgeous new guy at school, she can feel electricity that makes her skin buzz. Not to mention the monsters that haunt her nightmares have crossed over into real-life. But with Alex seeming to hate her and secrets popping up everywhere, Gemma's life is turning into a chaotic mess. Things that shouldn't be real suddenly seem to exist. And as her world falls apart, figuring out the secrets of her past becomes a matter of life and death.
