YA Author Interview: TARA FULLER!

_____________________________________________________


Author Name: Tara Fuller
Title: Inbetween (Kissed by Death, #1)
Release Date: August 14, 2012
.
Blurb:

Since the car crash that took her father’s life three years ago, Emma’s life has been a freaky—and unending—lesson in caution. Surviving countless “accidents” has taken priority over being a normal seventeen-year-old, so Emma spends her days taking pictures of life instead of living it. Falling in love with a boy was never part of the plan. Falling for a reaper who makes her chest ache and her head spin? Not an option.
.
It’s not easy being dead—especially for a reaper who is in love with a girl fate has put on his hit list not once, but twice. Finn’s fellow reapers give him hell about spending time with Emma, but Finn couldn’t let her die before, and he’s not about to let her die now. He will protect the girl he loves from the evil soul hell bent on stealing her body, even if it means sacrificing the only thing he has left…his soul.

Why do you write in the genre you write?
.
I love everything about YA. It’s my favorite genre to read. I love writing about first love and helping a character figure out their place in the world.
.
What other genres would you consider and why?
.
My current wip is actually very different from anything I’ve written. It is a post-apocalyptic story. Nothing paranormal. So I’m excited for something new. I would also love to write an adult paranormal romance someday.
.
Can you give us a hint of something else you’re working on?
.
Right now I am pouring myself into the sequel for INBETWEEN. In this book a couple of secondary characters that I adore are stepping into the spotlight. And of course I am working on the new wip I mentioned above. J

  6. Awesome interview! And I agree--great choices in casting. I can totally see these two together and it just makes me want to read it even more, which I didn't think was really possible. I already pre-ordered this one so now I guess I can just come back and visit this interview until it arrives in my mailbox :)
