Q+A with Dorothy Dreyer (My Sister's Reaper)

Please welcome today's paranormal guest author Dorothy Dreyer.  Dorothy is the author of My Sister's Reaper.

EJ:  When did you begin writing?

Dorothy: 
I've written for as long as I can remember, but I really got serious about it about 4 or 5 years ago.

EJ:  What brought you to the paranormal genre?

Dorothy: 
I love magic. I blame Harry Potter. ;)

EJ:  If you could be any paranormal or have any one supernatural talent, what would it be? Why?

Dorothy:
  Definitely mind control. I have two teens in the house, so you can probably guess why.

EJ:  Tell us why readers will enjoy your new release.

Dorothy:
  My book is filled with magic and mystery and horror and suspense and teenage angst and romance. Oh, and magic.

EJ:  If your book(s) were being made into a movie, who would you cast for the leading roles? Why?

Dorothy:
  I think Kelli Berglund would make a great Zadie. She's the right age, and she's got a dance background, which means she would probably be great in the action scenes.

For Gavin, I would have to say Douglas Booth. Just look him up, you won't question my choice, I promise.






















My Sister's Reaper by Dorothy Dreyer.

Sixteen-year-old Zadie’s first mistake was telling the boy she liked she could bring her dead sister back to life. Her second mistake was actually doing it.
When Zadie accidentally messes with the Reaper’s Rite that should have claimed her sister Mara, things go horribly wrong. Mara isn’t the same anymore—Zadie isn’t even sure she’s completely human, and to top it off, a Reaper is determined to collect Mara’s soul no matter what. Now Zadie must figure out how to defeat her sister’s Reaper, or let Mara die … this time for good.

  2. Mind control-huh?
    but with teens, they'd just wait until you were asleep. They seem to function in a different time zone anyway.

    may is not that far away now, Dorothy.

    1. Right? No more screaming at the kids to do their homework or clean their rooms. Or I could use it at the supermarket to make all the people let me cut in line, lol.
