Please welcome today's paranormal guest author Imogen Howson. Imogen is the author of Linked.
EJ: When did you begin writing?
Imogen: I was telling myself--and my little sister--stories from really
young, but I was writing them down from when I was about nine.
EJ: What brought you to the paranormal genre?
Imogen: Honestly, it's the only genre I can write in. I can't do the real world--it's just not exciting enough!
EJ: If you could be any paranormal or have any one supernatural talent, what would it be? Why?
Imogen: The ability either to summon lightning or set things on fire. Just because OMG, how cool?
EJ: Tell us why readers will enjoy your new release.
Imogen: It has identical twins. Who are telepathic. Who have to escape
from an evil government by going on a spaceship. What's not to love?
EJ: If your book(s) were being made into a movie, who would you cast for the leading roles? Why?
Imogen: I'd cast Sophie Turner as my twins, Elissa and Lin. Sophie
plays Sansa Stark in Game of Thrones, and I think she'd do a great job
of conveying the fragility and fierceness of both my leading characters.
(Please someone, use the film rights soon before she gets too old!) I'd
also love to see Zac Efron playing my spaceship captain. Partly for the
Linked by Imogen Howson.
Elissa used to have it all: looks, popularity, and a bright future. But
for the last three years, she’s been struggling with terrifying visions,
phantom pains, and mysterious bruises that appear out of nowhere.
Finally, she’s promised a cure: minor surgery to burn out the overactive
area of her brain. But on the eve of the procedure, she discovers the
shocking truth behind her hallucinations: she’s been seeing the world
through another girl’s eyes.
Elissa follows her visions, and finds a battered, broken girl on the
run. A girl—Lin—who looks exactly like Elissa, down to the matching
bruises. The twin sister she never knew existed.
Now, Elissa and Lin are on the run from a government who will stop at
nothing to reclaim Lin and protect the dangerous secrets she could
expose—secrets that would shake the very foundation of their world.
Riveting, thought-provoking and utterly compelling, Linked will make you question what it really means to be human.
Thank you Imogen for joining us here today at From the Shadows!
