By
A.K. Morgen
Genre:
New Adult Paranormal Romance
 
What
do you do when you realize nothing in your life is what you’ve
believed it to be?

 

 


When
Arionna Jacobs loses her mother in a tragic accident, her world is
turned upside down. She’s forced to leave her old life behind and
move in with her father. Dace Matthews, a teaching assistant at her
new college, is torn in two, unable to communicate with the feral
wolf caged inside him.
When they meet, everything they thought
they knew about life unravels. Dace has intimate access to Arionna’s
mind, and something deep within her fights to rise to the surface.
They don’t understand what’s happening to them or why, and they’re
running out of time to sort out the strange occurrences around them.
Their meeting sets an ancient Norse prophesy of destruction
in motion, and what destiny has in store for them is bigger than
either could have ever imagined. Unless they learn to trust
themselves and one another, they may never resolve the mystery
surrounding who they are to one another, and what that means for the
world.

When
Arionna Jacobs fled town in a desperate bid to save Dace Matthews,
she never expected the chaos she would leave in her wake. Now her

boy she left behind.  
 

 

Her problems are only just

Even as her bond with Dace grows stronger,
Arionna finds herself weakening when Freki’s cage shatters. Fighting
the wolf for control is tearing her apart piece by piece. And at
every turn, she finds that those she’s put her faith in aren’t who
they seem, bringing her face to face with Sköll and Hati. As the
depth of their betrayal is revealed, Freki spirals out of control,
and Arionna must face her greatest fear: losing herself to the fierce
wolf within.  

 

 

The world balances on the edge of a blade,
and one wrong move will destroy it all.  

 

 

With few allies
she can trust and little choice left, Arionna must decide between the

How does a LDS German family survive in Nazi Berlin?

Monday, October 5th, 2015

 

Lisel Spann has dreamed only of wonderful things in her future. Living with her father, sister, and brother in a cramped apartment in Berlin, the small family shares what seems to be an unbreakable spirit of love and security. However, with the rise of the Nazi party and approaching dark clouds of war, any kind of future grows increasingly uncertain. Knowing little of hate and destruction, Lisel is ill prepared as the storms of battle erupt in full fury and loved ones are taken from her as her beautiful city is reduced to rubble.

With fear and despair rising within, it is through her quiet, compassionate father that Lisel discovers faith and hope. Now, in a desperate journey to find her sister, Lisel and her neighbor flee Berlin and the advancing Russians for Frankfurt, a city under the protection of the Allies. But their flight to safety is filled with pain, hunger, and terror. However, with spiritual lessons and blessings from her father, the support of departed loved ones, and her tried but undying faith in a loving Heavenly Father, perhaps Lisel can emerge like the fireweed—rising strong and beautiful from scorched earth —transforming bitterness and despair into a charity that never faileth.

 

Terry, what makes you passionate about writing?

Telling a story that helps a reader think about a concept from a different perspective. Perhaps that perspective affirms her own beliefs about herself or her world or someone else’s world. Perhaps it doesn’t. Maybe she gains understanding and develops a clearer vision because she’s seeing it through the eyes of a character she’s never encountered before. What I love is helping someone turn over a few rocks and looking underneath.

Do you have a writing routine?

Some days I do but sometimes that doesn’t work out the way I’d like. Now, writers have to do so much more than write. There are promotional things, like blog interviews, websites and author pages to maintain and press releases. There are discussions with people in the industry and meetings to attend. Then, there is the market news to keep up with. If only it was just writing!

The routine I do try to maintain is built around what is going on in my family. Meals, dishes, laundry, school attendance and activities for the littlest kids. Plus, our daughter is a cancer patient and requires quite a lot of tending. It’s just hard sometimes to keep to a routine.

What is the title of your book?

Fireweed. With a subtitle of A Novel of World War II.

What genre does your book fall under?

Historical Women’s Fiction is the one I use most often to describe it. It is also a coming-of-age story of a teen-aged girl so it could be Young or New Adult. Or, maybe just General Fiction, if that exists anymore.

What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?

Fireweed is the story of an LDS German family trying to survive in Nazi Berlin during World War II.

What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?

I suppose any story that is set against a backdrop of war and concerns the challenges of being a woman in that place and that time.

Who or What inspired you to write this book?

I was doing research on the evacuation of American LDS missionaries from Nazi Germany at the time Germany invaded Poland during the first week of September of 1939. When I interviewed some of those evacuees, they had family members sitting in on the interviews and some of those family members were Germans who had lived in Germany during the course of WWII. Frequently, I asked a question the interviewee couldn’t answer from his/her memory. They’d excuse themselves to go into the next room to retrieve a journal or an album. While I was waiting, the German family members or friends would say, “Now, let me tell you what happened to me.” A writer never lets anything go to waste so I began taking another set of notes from the stories I heard. That led me to believe there was a story to be told about the LDS Germans living in Nazi Germany during the war.

Oh, the book Mine Angels Round About, which is the compilation of stories from the missionaries evacuated out of Nazi Germany will be available in the next few months. If you’re interested, watch for it at Amazon.

Great, thank you. What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?

It’s not hard to find a story about World War II, told from a male soldier’s point of view and especially one from an American viewpoint. This story is told by, first, a teen-aged German girl, then by her maturing self as she sees her country and people destroyed and vanquished. It shows how she comes to the conclusion that the worst thing her countrymen ever did was to themselves through arrogance or ignorance. She also learns that hope endures, love endures, and family connections endure. Self endures.

Where can we find your book?

You can pre-order a print book through Amazon now for the release on October 5. I’m told a Kindle book will also be available soon. (I’m only the author and don’t get to hear these kinds of things. J)

Adrienne Monson talks about her book, “Dissension,” Book 1 of the Blood Inheritance Trilogy

Friday, August 1st, 2014

Adrienne, thanks for visiting my blog today. Tell us where you were born and where you live now?

Adrienne Author - 3650
I was born in Utah and still live there. While I love to travel and experience various cultures, I also love to come home and be with friends and family.

Nice…What makes you passionate about writing?
It’s probably because I’m so passionate about reading. Books keep us company when no one else can. They’re also a window into other lives and worlds. How can I not love books and creating my own stories?

Amen to that. How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?

Nice, what is the most difficult thing about being an author?

Getting the word out about my book.

Amen to that. Who has made the greatest difference for you as a writer?

My father. He kept a library of books at my house. I consumed them. I probably shouldn’t have read some of the books when I did. For example, I read Rambo First Blood Part II in fifth grade. I think I read The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings first, though.
