Product Description:

Growing up an orphan in Phoenix, Alexandra quickly learned the art of blending into the background—better to be overlooked entirely than to ride the roller coaster of possibility.

Now nearing her twenty-first birthday, she looks back on her time in the orphanage as the place where she was lucky enough to meet her best friends, Shirl and Candy, the kind of friends you understand as well as you know yourself—like your minds are linked somehow. If only she could find a man who she could as easily connect with. But so far, the tally on that front is a big, fat zero.

Meanwhile, in the Aster Province of an alternate universe, Tarsea is locked into his goal of overthrowing the nefarious Troyk government. To him, relationships in general, and women in particular, are interchangeable and insignificant.

Living seemingly unconnected existences, separated by a portal, Alexandra and Tarsea have no idea what’s about to hit their lives—or their hearts. But the moment they touch, a telepathic channel opens between them. Their worlds will never be the same.

Plunge into a romantic adventure in a parallel universe, where soul mates aren’t just legends and telepathic citizens must fight to free their minds of government control.

From the Author:

When I met my first author, she mentioned how her characters talked to her. This was a common theme I discovered, when I attended my first romance novel convention. I thought all my favorite authors were crazy. So, you can imagine what I thought when it started to happen to me.

I was driving to play tennis on Sunday, February 23, 2013, when a real conversation that took place outside Sedona, Arizona played in my mind. The next thing I knew, five women started to tell me their stories. It was the oddest thing. Since I was leaving for Los Angeles and Mexico the next day, I purchased a five-subject spiral notebook to capture my thoughts. For nearly the two weeks while I was gone, I put pen to paper to world build, do character development, and plot my book.

Here is a Q&A related to my first book, The Chameleon Soul Mate.  The questions came from readers I met over the last year who read the book.

Q: Why did you choose the sky to be purple?
A: When Alex exits the portal and steps into the Troyk universe, I wanted to make it visually obvious she was no longer in Sedona. I remember when I lived in Austin, Texas, the sky was some times tinted yellow because of all the cedar pollen in the air. For my novel I did not want a yellow sky and chose the color purple. There were enough purple flowers and blooming trees to make it believable. It was a great way to brand myself and the books. When I am at a conference, I wear purple outfits and jewelry. One of my closest friends had a special amethyst necklace made for me. I also have purple flowers on my table at signings which attracts people.

Q: Did your male characters talk to you when you were writing this story?
A: The male characters did not speak to me in the beginning. The girls were very vocal and the guys did not say a word. I knew the women would start on Earth and would venture to a parallel world, where they would ultimately find their soul mates. At first I was going to make the men some kind of Fae. But that did not work, since I wanted the women to be the same species. I did have to make them special, possessing an ability we do not use on Earth. That was how I came up with a race of telepathic humans. The trait allowed me to broaden the plot to allow my characters to actually evolve their telepathic gifts, adding to the story line.

Q: Your soul mates are unique. How did you come up with how they react to one another?
A: I wanted their first touch to be dramatic. Since a telepathic channel opens between the two of them, it is almost as if they are electrocuted, when they first have skin on skin contact. My male hero suffers over whether to touch Alex or not. He knows deep down that she is his soul mate, but is terrified he is wrong. In addition, I wanted their telepathic powers to grow as the soul mates go through the evolutionary change the first time they make love.
 
Q: Your books are considered New Adult. Was that intentional on your part?
A: It was not my intention to write a book that would be considered New Adult, it just ended up that way.  In New Adult your protagonist needs to be 18 to 25 years old. Alex is 21 years old, while the other characters in the series are 18, 21, and 23-years old.  My characters struggle with post-high school issues. Being catapulted into a parallel dimension would create enough of a challenge for any character, regardless of their age. In new adult, the characters experience sex. Since my characters require sex to evolve their telepathic abilities, sex is a must. I get a spectrum of people telling me my sex scenes are mild to being very explicit. There is enough happening in the book, that there is limited sex regardless. It is a coming of age story where Alex is concerned. She has barely lived until she comes to the Troyk universe and discovers not only her soul mate, but her telepathic abilities. There is no parental support, since Alex (and my first three characters) is an orphan. Basically, if you look at what categorizes New Adult, my books meet every criteria.

Q: Do you plot your books, or do you create plot twists and characters as you write?
A: Actually, I do both. I originally outlined a plot I thought would get me to fifty to sixty thousand words. Once I started writing, what I had plotted brought me to only thirty thousand words. It was then when my main character started to talk to me again and the desired word count was reached and exceeded. At one point Alex told me what she wanted to become in the Troyk universe. After I freaked out, I started to write a plot line that would let Alex have her chosen vocation. Various ideas also came to me of worlds I would explore in the second and third books, but planted the seeds in this book. Tarsea, Alex's soul mate, wants to shelter her from what is wrong with the Troyk universe, allowing the information he shared with her to whet the reader's appetite for what was to come in future books.

Q: What is your favorite part of writing?
A: I absolutely love writing the first draft. The ideas flow and I write them down like crazy. I capture ideas, conversations, and plot twists which I further develop and flesh out in the second draft. It is also my favorite time with my characters and the period they talk to me the most.

Q: On the flip side, what is your least favorite part of the process?
A: There are two parts of the process I like the least. The first part is the continual proof reading I have to do to make sure I have as clean a manuscript as possible. I have to put my creativity on hold and read the book over and over again to make sure it is ready for my editor, beta readers, or final publication. I love the first complete read through, but after that I have to concentrate on sentence structure, plot holes, grammar, and cleanup sections that would slow down the reader's journey through the book. Secondly, I hate doing terrible things to my characters. It adds necessary conflict, but it is so hard. These characters are my children and I want them to live in a Utopian civilization where nothing bad happens to them. But that is not life and it would be a boring read.

Q: You are not very nice to your leading male character, calling him a 'man whore.'
A: Tarsea is my Scarlet Pimpernel. He presents one person to the world, when in fact he is something very different. His former dealings with women also create a conflict with Alex, questioning whether or not she can trust the man claiming to be her soul mate.

Q: You have a lot of secondary characters. How do you keep them all straight?
A: I have a series bible where I write characteristics, appearances, familial relationships, etc. for each character. Just documenting the person's name has been extremely helpful. When I use a character later in a book, I have to check my series bible to see how I spelled the name. There are times when I introduce a character I do not plan to use again, who may appear in my thoughts demanding more page time. One particular character was originally throw-away and she would not go away. She develops into a main character, who will be with us through the whole series. Her character page in the series bible just kept getting longer.

Q: Tell me about your editing process.
A: I have a professional editor who performs a content, line, and then a copy edit. For this book, I received a twelve page content edit. I knew there were issues with it, I just could not figure out what the problem was. My editor did a wonderful job of pointing out the book's deficiencies. I ended up restructuring the first seven chapters of that draft, modified the relationship between Alex and Tarsea, and added more conflict to the book. I believe it is a stronger book because of the work Tina did. My beta readers read the book to let me know about the readability. I made some changes based on their comments.
