I am a very happy camper today because I have the opportunity to introduce and share with you an awesome author who is visiting.  Erin, from Meryl L. Moss Media/The Book Trib, contacted me to read and review today’s showcased book and let me tell you, it was a page turner!!  So without further ado, please meet and greet Ms. Andrea Kane!

ANDREA KANE

Andrea Kane’s psychological thriller, THE GIRL WHO DISAPPEARED TWICE, became an instant New York Times bestseller, continuing her long string of smash hits.

It debuted Forensic Instincts, an eclectic team of maverick investigators, each with different talents and personalities, all with one common bond—a blatant disregard for authority. THE LINE BETWEEN HERE and GONE is the encore novel in the Forensic Instincts series. Armed with skills and talents honed by years in the FBI, Special Forces, and training in behavioral and forensic psychology, the Forensic Instincts team solves seemingly impossible cases while walking a fine line between assisting and enraging law enforcement.

With a worldwide following and novels translated into more than twenty languages, Kane is also the author of eight additional psychological thrillers and fourteen historical romances. She lives in New Jersey with her family, where she is conspiring with Forensic Instincts on new ways to disrupt the status quo.

Q & A WITH AUTHOR, ANDREA KANE

  1. 1.      Q: Describe your latest book in 15 words or fewer.

A: A mother is desperately searching for the father of her newborn baby – hoping that he’s alive and is a donor match to save her critically ill son.

  1. What inspired you to write THE LINE BETWEEN HERE AND GONE?

A: As with all my books, THE LINE, started out as flashes of the characters’ lives playing out in my head. I saw a flash of an important male character who vanished without a trace and a critically ill infant whose life was integrally tied to his.  But I didn’t know why or how that would factor into FI’s caseload.  Those answers came later, after the baby’s mother crystallized in my mind.

  1. Q: What sort of attachment do you have to your characters?

A: They become part of me, like family.  The ending of a book is bittersweet.  My characters are fully formed, have achieved some resolution in battling the trials and tribulations of life.  Just when I’m ready to enjoy their creation, it’s time to say goodbye.  Fortunately with Forensic Instincts, I get the chance to stay attached and further the FI team’s characters and stories in their next book.

  1. Q: Where do you do most of your writing?

A: Wherever my Pomeranian lets me.  It’s amazing where he can place his snout, his paws, his tail and his body on my laptop to prevent me from writingJ

  1. Q: Do you have an inspiration board for each book? Maybe a scrapbook? What inspires you when you’re writing?

A: No boards, no scrapbooks.  I’m a pretty cerebral person.  For me, the inspiration comes from within – characters with a story they’re excited to tell!

ABOUT THE BOOK:

Each day is a struggle for Amanda Gleason’s newborn son as he battles a rare immune deficiency. Justin’s best chance for a cure lies with his father, who was brutally murdered before Amanda even realized she carried his child.

Or was he?

One emailed photo changes everything, planting a seed of doubt that Amanda latches onto for dear life: a recent photo of a man who looks exactly like Paul. Could Justin’s father be alive? The mother in her is desperate to find out. But tracking down a ghost when every second counts is not for amateurs.

Forensic Instincts is the one team up for the challenge.

A behaviorist. A former Navy SEAL. A techno-wizard. An intuitive. A retired FBI agent. A human scent evidence dog. Together, they achieve the impossible, pushing ethical and legal boundaries whenever the ends justify the means.

The manhunt is on for the elusive father. Yet the further the team digs into Paul’s past, the more questions are raised about whether the man Amanda fell in love with ever really existed at all.

Dark secrets. Carefully crafted lies. From the Congressional halls of Washington D.C. to exclusive Hamptons manors, there are ruthless people who would stop at nothing to make Forensic Instincts forget about the man Amanda desperately needs to find.

Little do they realize that once Forensic Instincts takes the case, nothing will stop them from uncovering the shocking truth that transcends The Line Between Here and Gone.

Excerpt:
She didn’t really care if she had any messages. But she had to check – even if it was just to seek out some pie-in-the-sky miracle that would answer her prayers.
No miracle.
