Interview with Marie Lavender, author of Upon Your Return
My new book, Upon Your Return, is about a girl who has always dreamed of having adventures and finding love. Her uncle promises her to a complete stranger, which is obviously disheartening.
However, Fara Bellamont, the main character, gets into a bit of trouble when she finds herself at the harbor at night. She becomes utterly captivated by the man who rescues her. His name is Captain Grant Hill. Of course, they are unsuitable socially. But, who can listen to society when true love comes into the picture?
What genre is it?
Tell us a little more about Fara.
She definitely sounds it. What kind of readers will this book appeal to?
Complete this sentence for us: if you like _________________, you’ll love Upon Your Return.
How would you like the reader to feel as they read the last word of this book?
That is great news.
I am also doing a collaboration with another writer, and it’s a romantic suspense. At the same time, I am considering self-publishing another contemporary romance book, but I’m not sure which one it will be yet.
You sound really busy. Have you written any other books that we should read next?
A Touch of Dawn, penned under Erica Sutherhome, is a particularly sensual yet touching story about two people who have come from abusive backgrounds and somehow have the courage to find love. And another book, A Misplaced Life, released under the name Kathryn Layne, is about a girl who finds herself in the afterlife. She works to try to bring her killer to justice with all the disadvantages of being a spirit. These are only two examples, but the rest are good as well.
