Q+A with Lori Handeland
EJ: When did you begin writing?
Lori: I started when I was 10 years old writing a sci fi book about two families sent into space. Haven't stopped since. My first book was published in 1993.
EJ: What brought you to the paranormal genre?
Lori: I've always loved the spooky, the unusual and the mystical. I was first in line to buy Carrie when it came out. My mom tells a story about when I was a baby and she would work nights, she'd come home and my dad would have propped up on the couch watching The Twilight Zone and Outer Limits.
EJ: If you could be any paranormal or have any one supernatural talent, what would it be? Why?
Lori: I would love to be invisible. It would serve so many purposes. I could get a lot of writing done too! No distractions!
EJ: Tell us why readers will enjoy your new release.
Lori: My latest release is IN THE AIR TONIGHT, which is the first book in my Sisters of the Craft witch trilogy. These books will be released back to back, starting June 2 with IN THE AIR TONIGHT, then June 30- HEAT OF THE MOMENT, and August 4-SMOKE ON THE WATER.
In IN THE AIR TONIGHT, three triplet babies are sent forward in time from the 16th century to the present day to escape the wrath of a witch hunter. Each has her now life and no knowledge of her supernatural powers until . . .
Raye Larsen has never fit in with the Scandinavian community of New Bergin, Wisconsin. Being adopted is part of the reason she feels like an outsider, but what really sets her apart is her ability to see dead people. Everywhere. She’s learned to keep her visions to herself…until she stumbles onto the ghost of a murder victim. Enter Bobby Doucet, a distractingly handsome homicide detective who has been tracking a killer all the way from New Orleans.
These books have a little bit of everything--time travel, Wicca, werewolves. All of the things I love about the paranormal.
EJ: If your book(s) were being made into a movie, who would you cast for the leading roles? Why?
Lori: I would cast Evan Rachel Wood as Raye. She has the perfect look and can pull off both the small town kindergarten teacher innocence and the just born witchy woman. I would cast Danny Pino as Bobby. Also the perfect "look" and he's already played a detective on SVU. One of my favorite shows.
Thank you Lori for joining us here today at From the Shadows!
In the Air Tonight (Sisters of the Craft #1) by Lori Handeland
Four centuries ago, in a small Scottish village, three baby girls escaped the wrath of a witch hunter. Today, one young woman will learn about her secret history, her heart's destiny, and the sisters she never knew she had...
With her blue-black hair and dark eyes, Raye Larsen has never fit in with the Scandinavian community of New Bergin, Wisconsin. Being adopted is part of the reason she feels like an outsider, but what really sets Raye apart is her ability to see dead people. Everywhere.
She’s learned to keep her visions to herself . . . until she stumbles onto the ghost of a murder victim who needs Raye’s help. Enter Bobby Doucet, a distractingly handsome homicide detective who has been tracking a killer all the way from New Orleans. Could this be the break in his case he’s been looking for all along?
Meanwhile, the deeper Raye gets involved with the case—and with Bobby—the closer she comes to unlocking the mystery of her own origins. What she discovers about herself could destroy everything she knows . . . and everyone she loves. Is finding the truth worth the risk?
