The amazing Patty Perrin

Hi Readers,

Check out my Interview with this fabulous Author, Patty Perrin.  Her books will delight you!  Thank you so much, Mrs. Perrin for joining me today.

1. Tell me a bit about one of your favorites that you wrote.

Terra’s Call is the first of a four-book Teen/YA Sci-fi series, and my first attempt at writing fiction. I learned so much as I wrote it, rewrote it, honed it, and was finally satisfied with it. It’s the story of four genetically enhanced teens who discover that they are the ones mentioned in an ancient Cherokee prophecy who would be tasked with saving the world from destroying itself. Except for the twins, Sky and Pax who grew up together, the teens meet for the first time in their senior year. They learn that truth is bigger than they thought, that they are capable of much more than they imagined, and that differences among the inhabitants of Terra (our Earth) don’t necessarily make them enemies – or friends.

I love writing for Young Adults and Teens because they have dreams and imagination, and if I can encourage their sense of wonder and give them something positive, uplifting, mysterious, adventurous, and with a touch of romance, then I’m satisfied.

2. Writing is a difficult endeavor. What makes you continue to write?

Before I finished the series, I couldn’t let my characters leave their task unfinished. The research alone was so much fun, thanks to my personal research assistant Google. I had no idea there are so many mysteries right here on our planet, or that quantum physics may hold answers to questions we don’t know how to ask yet.

Now that the series is written, I continue to have visions, ideas that keep coming, and the strong feeling that the Creator has partnered with me in writing. How could I not keep writing?

3. What do you look forward to every day?

Waking up, spending time with the Lord, and starting on my task list for the day. I tend to write in spurts, most notably the month of November, or National Novel Writing Month (Nanowrimo). I’ve started each of my fiction books with the 50,000 word challenge of that month. I finish it over the next few months, and then take a break to try to learn some marketing and get some of my own reading done.

4. How do you define success? What makes you successful?

When you’ve influenced the life of someone else for the better, that is success. When a young fan tells me I’m her favorite author, and she isn’t related to me – that is success. When my grandchildren read my books, write reviews and book reports on them… You get the picture. Success is having people read and enjoy the books I write. I wouldn’t discount being a best-selling author or earning a decent income from book sales, but I’m already successful

5. Any tips for a newbie writer?

Write! The more you write, the better you’ll get at it. Learn all you can about the craft of writing. Take classes, learn grammar and the difference between active and passive verbs, phrases and scenes. Learn about writing descriptions through action and dialogue. Once you’ve written something you’re excited about, get a lot of feedback, from Beta readers, friends, and editors, and don’t take criticism personally. View it as a learning experience, and don’t give up. You’re not too young to write well, and you’re not too old. Enjoy the journey.

Fifty Frogs Available Now on Amazon

Vivian is sick of dating. Sick of the way guys treat her, sick of living and crying by when and if they call . . . she’s just done.

When her aunt reminds her that a girl has to kiss a lot of frogs before she finds her prince–Aunt Gail says that number is fifty–Vivian decides she’s taking control of her dating life: she’s going to go on a series of first dates only, and each one must end in a kiss. She begins chronicling each date–the good, the bad and the downright unbelievable–with a plan to turn the stories into an in-depth magazine series about the realities of dating in the twenty-first century.

Everything’s going along according to plan until Vivian hits a bump in her road with Frog Number Five, who doesn’t seem to understand his role in this deal. And despite Vivian’s determination to make it all the way to the big five-oh, when fate keeps throwing this same man across her path, she begins to wonder if maybe it’s time to ditch the plan . . . and kiss just one more frog.

Excerpt:

 

As they went into a room, he stopped. Laura heaved a sigh of relief when the man bent his shoulder, and her feet touched the floor. Taking some trembling breaths beneath the gag, she wished he would remove it. It was getting wet and yucky. As she wondered what was going to happen next, she hoped he would take all her binds off so she could at least have a fighting chance against him.

The sound of the door clicking shut, and then locking, was loud—and final. Now she was alone in a room with a person who promised he would hurt her.

Her captor prodded her to move forward.

“Go on.”

Laura hesitated after a few steps, unsure what to expect. Uncertain what he expected of her—the man who had kidnapped her and brought her to a strange building, to an unfamiliar room.

Large hands folded around her shoulders from behind squeezing her in an oddly calming way before nudging her to go on, making her stumble. “Uh-uh, lady. Don’t stop now. There’s nothing in front of you.” His voice was deep, and silky smooth—like a dangerous predator. Gorgeous, but deadly.

Laura shivered as she hesitantly walked forward a few more paces, not really believing his words.

He grunted behind her. “So you don’t trust me, eh?”

No, I don’t! She hated being out of her comfort zone. Her boyfriend teased her she should let him take her out more often, particularly to new places she’d never been before. He reckoned she was missing out on life.

And now she was experiencing ‘life.’ She snorted to herself. It wasn’t what she thought her boyfriend had been suggesting, which was more along the lines of dinner in a nice restaurant, maybe a concert or even a club.

“I’ll have to cure you of this mistrust, my dear.”

Laura became aware his voice was coming from a different direction. He had moved ahead of her.

Making a sudden decision, Laura ran in the direction she considered the door to be. It took about five or six steps before her shoulder connected with a thud.

Ouch!

Turning around anxiously so she could get at the lock with her hands still tied behind her back, she fiddled with the handle. Her heart pounding, she desperately tried to get it open. She had almost succeeded when she heard running footsteps as he came up behind her slamming the door shut again, denying her freedom, keeping her prisoner.

Laura groaned. It had been a long shot at best.

“Where exactly do you think you’re going?” His voice was low and sardonic, clearly amused by her vain attempt to escape.

His arms were either side of her face, and he pressed his body against hers. She could feel his hard cock against her and shivered in reaction.

I nearly made it. Except where would she have gone once out, not being able to see anything? It was rather stupid, she knew.

His breathing was harsh against her cheek, although his voice sounded amused. “Oh, I see. You want to play games, do you? Don’t worry. We are going to play some great games. We’ve played catch—and now I’ve caught you. Clever me. Next comes leader of the pack. I’ll show you who is in charge around here, and then maybe we’ll play some ball games.” He laughed at his joke.

A slither of fear—or excitement went through her belly, knotting her stomach. I’m not aroused. I’m not!
