Q+A with Evelyn Lederman
EJ: When did you begin writing?
Evelyn: I met Christine Feehan at Romcon2010 and she mentioned her characters talked to her. This was a common theme. I thought authors were crazy, until it happened to me. On February 23, 2014 I was driving to play tennis when a real conversation that occurred outside Sedona, Arizona played in my head. Then all of a sudden five fictional girls started to talk to me. That was the beginning of the Worlds Apart series.
EJ: What brought you to the paranormal genre?
Evelyn: First of all, it is a genre I love to read. Paranormal stories are the best escapism around! As an author I am not limited to the ‘real’ world. I get to create multiple worlds, as my characters travel from dimension to dimension. The only limitation I have is my own imagination.
EJ: If you could be any paranormal or have any one supernatural talent, what would it be? Why?
Evelyn: Vampire. There has always been something sexy and alluring about the fictional vampire. Lynsay Sands, Alexandra Ivy, Maggie Shayne, and Amanda Ashley (to name several authors), write about eternal love. Who would not want that? Secondly, I think it would be fascinating to watch history unfold over time.
EJ: Tell us why readers will enjoy your new release?
Evelyn: My next release will be the fourth book in the Worlds Apart series. Readers have told me to write faster, they want the next installment. I wrote the first book in my Nightshade Saga series between books 3 and 4. I had trapped a woman in the Nightshade dimension and wanted to ‘rescue’ her before I wrote The Mind Control Telepath.
EJ: If your books were being made into a movie, who would you cast for the leading roles? Why?
Evelyn: For Alexandra Mann I would cast Lindy Booth, from The Librarians. I think she would be able to capture Alex’s spunk, while being able to fade into the shadows. For Tarsea, I would cast a young Eric Bana. Tarsea is the strong, quiet type. He is controlling and communicates more in a stare, then words.
Thank you Evelyn for joining us here today at From the Shadows!

The Mind Control Telepath (Worlds Apart #4) by Evelyn Lederman.
JoAnna Carlson learned at an early age how to get everything she wanted- use her special gift. She blindly follows her soul mate to a parallel world, where their corrupt government possesses the same power. Koel Mardroft has desperately searched for his soul mate, only to have their joining threaten everything he has fought against.
Chartail Adholm was made to feel defective because she could not sway people's decisions with telepathic capabilities she had not inherited. Now in the penal world, she discovers she temporarily possesses the power she always abhorred.
Is the mind control telepathic power too much of a temptation for JoAnna and Chartail? Will JoAnna betray Koel, falling victim to the governmental pressures to use her growing talents?
Genre: Paranormal Romance
