Publisher: Fiery Seas Publishing

Genre: Women's  Fiction

Book Description:

Mirabelle is a writer who just can't finish any of the stories she starts. When her twins leave home for college, they take with them Mirabelle’s sense of identity. As she strives to adjust to her empty nest she is visited by someone unexpected: a character from the very first novel she ever attempted to write.

Characters from all of her unfinished works begin to materialize in her home, in her car, at her job. They talk, yell, and some even throw things at her. Mirabelle can see them, smell them, touch them and though she knows they’re not real, she can’t help but engage them. She created them, after all. They become part of her daily life and she finds herself alternating between hiding them from and sharing them with her almost-always-doting husband, Alex.

Some of Mirabelle’s characters are like good friends, encouraging her to finish something she’s started. Others manipulate her for their own needs and story lines. Good and bad, these characters are part of her and Mirabelle discovers she needs to both fix and finish them before they destroy her life, her sanity, and her marriage.

About the Author:

Amy Snyder began writing when she realized the strange things that happened in her imagination were far more interesting than the things that happened in her real life.  After earning her degree in Radio, Television, and Film from Northwestern University, she worked at a financial brokerage house, a nationally published magazine, an advertising agency, and most recently, an elementary school as a Math Tutor, Substitute Teacher, and Library Paraprofessional. 

But she’s always been a writer.

Amy lives in Glastonbury, Connecticut with her husband, two teenage children, and two cats. While she has been known to talk out loud to the characters she’s writing, she hasn’t had an actual hallucination…yet.

Interview with Amy Snyder

Where do you get inspiration for your stories?
Most of my ideas come from real life. Usually something small that catches my interest and let a story grow out of it. That inspiration doesn’t always make it into the final draft. It’s just a seed, a spark, a starting point.
How did you do research for your book?
Google is a girl’s best friend! It is awesome to be a writer at a time when so much information is so readily available at our fingertips. When I first started writing, it wasn’t quite so easy. I once called a police station for help with a scene, but they were a little preoccupied with other things.
Do you have another profession besides writing?
I work in an elementary school library. Even though Children’s Books aren’t my genre, I still love being surrounded by books.
If you could go back in time, where would you go?
Back to a time when I was a little less worried about nuclear war with North Korea.
What is your next project?

I have two works that I am editing right now. One is full of music and dreams, the other is filled with secrets and lies.
