Q+A with C.S. Yelle

EJ:  When did you begin writing?

  1987 right out of college. After an 11 year break, I have been writing steady since 1998.

EJ:  What brought you to the paranormal genre?

A lot of people around me who I respected really enjoyed that genre. I found it fit well with my Fantasy background so it was an easy transition for me. It definitely made me a better writer.

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

I am fascinated with the ability to teleport. To be able to jump from one place to another in an instant would be incredible and for a person who spends many hours driving each week, the time saved would be awesome!

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

Good vs. Evil, True love or forbidden love, everything and everyone you love at risk, oh, and car chases. You have to love a car chase.

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

  Britt Anderson – AnnaSophia Robb
Allister Parks – Alex Pettyfer
Kendal – Cameron Bright
Angelina Parks – Emma Roberts

Taking Angels (The Angel Crusades #1) by C.S. Yelle

Britt Anderson went along with everything the doctors said for nearly four years, but she was still dying at eighteen. The cancer had won leaving her without a future, without any options, and without control. No control, except for how she would leave this world. As Britt tries to end her life by going into the frigid waters she realizes her mistake. She struggles to get back to shore, to cry out for help, but her atrophied muscles are useless and the frigid water steals the breath from her chemo-scarred lungs. Despite her father’s attempts to reach her, she flies over the waterfall.

When Allister Parks finds Britt’s fragile body on the riverbank something calls out to him. Ignoring the warnings of his sister, Allister brings Britt back from the edge of death. The only problem is that an Eternal like Allister isn’t allowed to touch those who have already passed from this world. It is forbidden; an infraction punishable by death.

As Britt relishes her new cancer-free life and senior year of high school, her very existence threatens Allister’s place in this world. Allister struggles to keep Britt a secret from the Eternal Council and out of the hands of the only Eternal who already knows the truth: the one who stole her guardian angel.
