Why you must read Charlene Iverson’s Four Minutes to Die
Alana Coxcomb was only a young child when a madman wandered onto her family farm and killed everyone in her family except her. She hid away in a small cabinet, when she saw her family being murdered one after another.
After escaping the brutal murders that hit the Coxcomb farm, Alana Coxcomb is the only surviving member of her family. She was raised by the detective that investigated the case. When she grows up, she decides to move back onto the farm in honor of her family. But her family comes back to haunt her. It seems they want her to join them in death.
Join them? Is this a thriller – or something much darker?
In the vein of?
We should talk more about Alana.
I started writing because I had to. Ideas were spinning around in my head. I had to get them on paper. When I started putting them on the market and seeing high reviews, I just kept writing. I had written seven books before I decided to become an indie author.
Where does the passion come from?
I was raised in the small town of Mandan, North Dakota. I have seven brothers and three sisters. We spent much of our time, as children telling ghost stories. I developed an interest in the supernatural at a very young age and have been researching the subject since I can remember. I worked my way through college and now work with people with developmental disabilities and write in my spare time.
I am also a self taught artist. I have sold many of my paintings. But my passion is writing.
Stories must come to you easily.
That’s impressive. But this interview is meant to be about Four Minutes to Die. Tell us something else about it.
