When school starts and the events of the summer no one is likely to forget haven't been solved, the five girls decide to take matters into their own hands.

But the problem with lifting stones to find the secrets hidden under them is that you never can tell just what lies beneath.

For the five unlikely friends, what lies beneath involves each and every one of them.

And as the story twists and turns, they start to see they are each connected to the murder and the disappearance still rocking the small sea side community.

Don't miss the exciting second book in The Crimson Cove Mysteries.

I am the mother of two beautiful girls who are growing up so fast, the wife of a cute guy in a uniform (my own personal hero), and a writer.

My family will tell you it doesn't exactly fall into that order. Especially around dinner time when I "Cook" from a takeout menu with my face plastered to my computer. I also have two cats who I adore more than I should, like more than people I know, and a dog. He is a beagle who is naughty but just so darned cute. He gives you that little beagle face and then steals your slice of pizza.

I have a busy mind and even busier fingers. I can write fast and keep track of a large cast, but I can't remember why I'm at the grocery store. I try to write lists but they always end up being notes for books or indie bands. I LOVE INDIE MUSIC! I talk to myself in the car and sing too loud for my skill level. The invention of Bluetooth has made talking in the car less awkward but if you hear me singing, run. I love writing. I love my characters like they are my friends and I am telling their version of the truth.

My worst flaw is the horrid English accent which I read everything with. If I read aloud it comes too. I'm not English, so I can't even do the accent which makes it awkward for anyone who is nearby.

My favourite authors are Robert Jordan and Jane Austen and Robert Mccammon and Jim Crace. I think Stephen King and Dean Koontz have the most unique imaginations. I have the hardest time not LOVING Catcher In The Rye by J.D. Salinger. I know all the serial killers have a copy but I adored that novel. It made me feel a thousand different things and one of them was more alive. (And not in the least bit serial killer-ish) When I grow up I want to be James Patterson or Nora Roberts. I aspire to be like them, always trying to hone my skills and work harder. My genres are all over the map. I have Paranormal Romance, Contemporary Romance, Science Fiction, Erotica (under Sophie Starr my porn name so my mom doesn't know), Thrillers, and even some Romantic Comedies. If you would like to reach me for whatever reason, please visit me at my facebook page -facebook.com/TaraBrownAuthor

Halloween Scream
October 31, 2015
Sierra

The noise of the creaking stairs, the ones I had just crept up, sounded like it echoed in my ears. Someone had followed us here. “Jake,” I whispered, hoping he was messing around. If he was, I would be angry. I lifted one leg after the other and slipped my high heels off, holding them both so I could tiptoe through the half-constructed mansion without making noise. Jake didn't answer, but the footsteps had stopped from the moment I whispered. The scary movie marathon we’d had before Rachel died flashed through my head, bringing ideas and memories with it. I tiptoed around the corner, brushing my Frankenstein’s bride dress on the rough edge where the unfinished walls met. The drywall scraped against me, making me wince as I hurried along the corridor to the back deck. Whoever was in the house with me was either moving silently too or they were standing still, listening. Either way, I had a terrible feeling this wasn't a game. That meant one thing: Jake was injured or hiding. And I was alone. My heart raced, my eyes burned from not blinking—fearful I would miss something—and my mouth was as dry as a mouthful of popcorn. The floor creaked. I froze. “Sierra,” someone whispered into the dark. My skin crawled when I realized it wasn't Jake. It wasn't his whisper. I’d heard that enough times, always in the dark, to know it wasn't him. “Sierra, don't be scared.” It sounded like something it couldn't be, but I didn't believe. I stayed perfectly still, waiting for the moment I needed to run to the back deck and jump down onto the sandy beach. What had the girls in the horror movies done wrong? What could I avoid? My mind raced, remembering the runners always got caught. They always got stabbed. Usually in the back. The thought of it made my skin burn where I imagined the knife would slice. The hiders always got caught. They were the ones breathing too loudly or hiding in stupid places. “Sierra, I won’t hurt you if you come to me.” I squeezed my eyes shut for half a second and waited for the answer, the right choice, to pop into my head. A dog barked, making me jump and open my eyes. The sound was joined by the creaking of the floorboards again. With gentle breaths and controlled movements I crept along the hallway, entering the spot where the kitchen or master bedroom would likely go. The house was freshly sealed with windows and doors, but it was still in the drywall stage with plywood floors. The massive back deck was through the white French doors, facing the beach and open ocean. The moon offered light, enough to make shadows move with me. I hurried to an alcove I assumed would one day be a nook for a breakfast bar or maybe the ensuite soaker tub. I pressed my back against the wall and stared at the bright white French doors. If I could make it to them, I was free. If only I had my cell phone, I could call the police or Jake or Vincent. Someone would come and help me. Even Ashton might answer. But that wasn't an option. I scolded myself for my weakness in me and forced my focus to be on the doors. They were my answer. They were my hope. As I exhaled and plotted my moment to run and everything I would do from that point on, the floor creaked in the hallway behind me. It was now or never. Live or die. I took one more breath and pushed off from the wall…

Author Interview

Welcome Ednah and thanks for joining us today

Firstly can you tell us a little about yourself?
I’m a multi-genre published author and a stay at home mother of five with two cats, yes two cats. I write YA series as Ednah Walters and adult Romance as E.B. Walters. Between my YA bestsellers: The runes Series, The Guardian Legacy and my Contemporary Romance bestsellers: The Fitzgerald Family Series and The Infinitus Billionaire Series I have about eighteen published books. Some of my YA books are traditionally published, but the majority are self-published.

What inspired you to start writing novels for your chosen genre?
I’ve always been an avid romance reader, so I gravitated toward romance. But then my children became teenagers and one begged me to write something she could read, so I started writing in the YA genre too

Are there any other genres you’ve written?
 YA Paranormal, YA Urban Fantasy and Adult Contemporary Romance.
  
Are you working on anything new right now?
Well, I just finished the second book on my Infinitus Billionaire Series, Indulge. Which is set to be released on August 4th. I’m also writing the next Runes book from a guy’s POV, the Main Character and Valkyrie heartthrob, Torin St. James. That’s going to be interesting. I’ve written contemporary adult romance in men’s POV, not teen guys. But his story is a powerful one and I’m up for the challenge…

Can you offer any advice to the fledgling authors, just starting out?
Write from the heart. I’ve heard about “write what you know” and I really don’t buy into it. If that was the case, paranormal and fantasy romances would not exist. Let your imagination flow and stay true to yourself when you write. DO NOT follow the trend. If Stephanie Meyers had followed the trend, she would not have written Twilight. They said vampire sub-genre was dead. They lied. Fanged ones are here to stay.

What is your all-time favourite novel?
Whitney My Love, a historical by Judith McNaught

What are you reading at the moment & would you recommend it to us?
I’m reading book 4 in the Judgement of the Six series by Melissa Haag. It is an amazing werewolf story and I truly recommend it.

If you could Time Travel, what year would you visit and why?
I’d travel to the future, if it looks anything like in Star Trek. I want to go to a period when human beings are enlightened and not bogged down by race or nationality. United Federations of Planets sounds perfect. Heck, I want to captain my own ship. As you can tell, I’m a serious geek.
If you could be any character in any novel, who would it be and why?
I’d be Raine, the heroine in my Runes series, that way I could have Torin as my mate and having the Norn powers doesn’t hurt.
  
How do you come up with the Titles for your novels?
It depends on what my main character is facing or dealing with at the time.

When working on your current novel, were there any moments when you thought:- OMG what am I doing?
Every time I finish a book, I ask myself that. I’m never happy. Sometimes I even hate the story and think it’s crap.

Do you have a day job, other than writing?
I’m a full time Mom… The hardest job on earth.

What is your preferred method of writing:-  The plot pre-planned from day one, or just go with the flow and see what happens next?
I plot in my head then sit down and start typing. By the second chapter, my characters are in my head and the story just flows.
  
If you don’t like a character you’re writing about, what do you do?
            a. Kill them off instantly
             b. Get over it and learn to like them
             c. Give them a whole new personality
  
If you were stranded on a distant planet:-  which of your characters would you like to be marooned with and why?
Andris, from my Runes Series: He will whine and either make me laugh or piss me off, then together we’ll find a solution. He is self-absorbed yet he has a way of getting things done.

Do you have any input in the Cover design of your novel?
Yes, I am completely involved in the process. I help choose the models and the backgrounds for a final product I can love to represent my story.

What is your favourite genre to read at the moment?
Paranormal

Apart from writing, do you have any other hobbies?
I love to travel and visit new places. I’m going to Paris and London in a few weeks and I’m very excited about it.

Are you a morning person or a night owl?
Night owl, definitely

What’s your least favorite part of the writing process?
Writing the end of the story. I hate tying the lose ends and saying goodbye.

How long does it typically take you to write a novel?
8-12 weeks

Are you a:
a.      Laptop Writer
b.      Desktop Writer
c.       iPad Writer
d.      Pen and Paper Writer
a. Laptop writer

If you didn’t write, what would you do instead to fill the creative void?
Design clothes. I did make my own clothes when I was younger.

If there was an apocalypse, would you want to go up in the middle of it, or be a post-apocalypse survivor and live without the creature comforts that we are so used too?
I’d be a survivor. As long as I’m with my loved ones.
