Laney Lowell moved across the country to escape her past, not to fall in love. But when she becomes friends with Gabe, a handsome artist plagued by a mysterious disease, she’ll have to decide between facing his dark truth or walking away from him forever.
Carole tells me that her book is a young adult fantasy/romance set in North Carolina where she lives. "It is a clean romance for teens with a paranormal element." It is also the first in a series, The Dark Light Dance Trilogy.
Let's meet Carole- “I live in a little cottage in Garner, North Carolina, a small town just outside of Raleigh, with my husband, Tom. Our three children are grown and (mostly) gone, but our needy cat, Pepper, makes sure we’re not bored–especially as she likes to sit in front of the computer screen while I type. We have six grandchildren who keep all of us on our toes.
I had the chance to ask her a few questions-
What inspired you to write Refuge? I was inspired to write Refuge when I first heard about the red wolves in North Carolina. They are endangered and the only ones to run free in the world are here in the wildlife refuge. We visited the area, which I wasn't familiar with before, and I knew I could set a story there. I fell in love with the small town and the movement to save the red wolf and suddenly Gabe and Laney were there in my head, wanting me to tell their story!
What was your favorite book to read as a child? I have memories of reading so many wonderful books as a child--I barely remember the time before I could read. My mother used to put my stack of library books on top of the very tall dining room china cabinet to keep me from spending all my time with my nose buried in a book. Charlotte's Web, The Boxcar Children, The Little House on the Prairie, The Secret Garden, stand out in my mind. I loved reading those same books to my own children--the mark of true classics!
How is book 2 coming along? Book Two in the Dark Light Dance Trilogy, Unity, is finished. I will go through and make a few final revisions after Christmas and then pronounce it done!
Thanks Carole :)
