Madison is familiar enough with change, and she hates everything about it. Change took her long-term boyfriend away from her. It caused one of her friends to suddenly hate her. It’s responsible for the death of a local along with a host of other mysterious happenings. But when Madison meets a hot new guy, she thinks her luck is about to improve. Madison is instantly drawn to the handsome and intriguing Isaac Addington. She quickly realizes he’s a guy harboring a secret, but she’s willing to risk the unknown to be with him. Her world really spins out of control, however, when her best friend becomes delusional, seeing things that aren’t there and desperately trying to escape their evil. When the doctors can’t find the answers, Madison seeks her own. Nothing can prepare her for what she is about to discover.
1) What has been the toughest criticism given to you as an author?
I’m coming up blank on something specific. There have been times when I’ve worked on a scene, revised and tightened it and one of my critique partners or beta readers feel the scene either isn’t working or should simply be cut. I usually have to mull over their comments before deciding what’s best for the story.
2) Are you a person who makes their bed in the morning, or do you not see much point?
I like to crawl
into a neat bed in the evening, so I make mine every morning. It would drive me nuts if the sheets and blankets were tangled from the night before.
3) Do you have any actor/actress in mind for Madison?
If Emma Watson was willing to die her hair a dark chestnut brown, she’d be perfect for Madison.
4) Do you go out of your way to kill bugs? Are there any that make you screech and hide.
The only time I’m okay with bugs is if I’m outside away from my house. So, I guess I do go out of my way to kill them otherwise. I dislike spiders the most, especially big hairy ones.
5) What sort of Starbuck’s coffee would Madison order?
In the fall she’d order a pumpkin spice latte. The rest of the year she’d have a hazelnut latte.
About the author:
Cherie’s imagination extends far beyond her Illinois roots through her love of books and reading. The discipline of her career as a Network Technician provides an opposing mindset for her fictional stories. Cherie combines her fascination of all things mythical with her passion for writing to weave together middle grade and young adult stories. She enjoys spending time with family and friends, meeting new people, writing, reading, and loves a challenge. While she has had many great experiences, her most satisfying experience is seeing her children and stories grow into their own exciting and distinct entities.
My take: This is definately a good read. The author’s imagination transitions into reality with every page. Ms. Colyer keeps you engaged throughout. I would definatley put it on your tope 10 reads before the year ends! Anticipation for her next novel is already at its peak.
