EJ:  When did you begin writing?

  Pretty much since the time I could pick up a pencil. My parents have “stories” that I wrote as early as 1st grade. I remember writing all growing up. I’ve always loved doing it. I completed my first novel when I was 15, and decided to really try to make a career of writing about 5 or so years ago. My first published book, Being Jamie Baker, was released about 3 years ago.

EJ:  What brought you to the paranormal genre?

  It was definitely my love of the genre. I real a lot more paranormal/fantasy than I do contemporary. Every time I read a book and love it I tell myself that I want to write something like that. I finally got brave enough to give it a try, and I don’t regret it! I had so much fun writing this series!

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

  Hmm… I think dream walking could be really cool, but if I had to be a certain type of paranormal I’d have to go with witch/warlock/mage… whatever you want to call a magic user. I love magic. It’s so bad-a. I would love to be able to use it. Plus, in all the role playing campaigns I’ve done (Yes, I am a geek!) a powerful magic user can kick some serious butt.

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

  Honestly, I think people will fall in love with the characters. (At least I hope so!) Chameleon also has a great mystery that I think will keep readers turning the pages. It has all the great elements of paranormal books that we love, yet it has a few fresh elements to it as well. Hopefully it reads as an exciting fresh unique adventure.

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

LOL I always have the hardest time trying to cast my characters. In fact my husband often jokes that if any of my books ever get made into movies, they will have to keep me out of the casting room because no one will ever be good enough for me. The only character from any of my books that I have ever had a specific actor in mind for is Seth from Serial Hottie. For some reason Logan Lerman has always been my Serial Hottie. Even before I started writing the book. No idea why.

Chameleon (Supernaturals #1) by Kelly Oram.

For small-town rebel Dani Webber magic and monsters are no more real than the Easter Bunny… until the day she accidentally stops time. Dani quickly discovers that not only do supernaturals exist, but she herself is one of them. This is great news for her life-long best friend Russ, who can finally come clean about his own supernatural status and his undying love for her. Before the two can start to enjoy the long overdue relationship, Dani is taken by a powerful council of supernaturals who believe she is the Chosen One destined to save them from extinction.

As if being kidnapped and expected to save the world isn’t bad enough, an ancient prophecy warns of the Chosen One’s dark nature: “Only the truest love will keep her an agent for good.” The council believes they know who this “true love” is and, unfortunately, that person isn’t Russ. The mysterious, powerful and devastatingly handsome Seer is the last person Dani wants in her life, but when she starts having visions of a horrific future, she has no one else to turn to for help.

Soon Dani finds herself torn between two very different boys with two very different opinions of whom she can trust. With the visions getting worse and time running out, Dani is forced to put aside her feelings and work with both the Seer and Russ before an ancient evil is unleashed upon the earth.
