It has been way too long since I hosted the talented Audra Tropser on my blog, so when I heard she had a new release, I was excited and begged her to drop by for a visit to discuss Unveiled. Let me share my review of this book, followed by the interview:
A.D. Tropser is known for creating detailed, fascinating worlds,
ranging from ones where dragons fly to peeking behind the veils of time and
space. I have read all of her books and enjoyed them all for her attention to
detail, vivid descriptions and memorable characters. Unveiled is yet another winner. Audra’s creative mind went
into overdrive as she weaves the story of Jo and her sister as they journey
down a new path—one that neither young woman had a clue existed. Jo was my favorite character because she is the perfect
embodiment of strength and vulnerability. When her entire existence is flipped

and lots of snarky comebacks. When the “unveiling” happens, …

with the viscous fog coating the air, a moving body could still be spotted. It was Saturday night, the air frigid and the
streets slick with water and a bit treacherous, yet some people would be out
and about. War and Peace was
It is time to offer up two fabulous gifts to one lucky winner! If you are interested in entering the contest for my upcoming dark comedy released by HarperCollins Publishers UK, Marriage Made Me Do It, keep reading!
THIS IS THE LIFE I WANTED, RIGHT?
Ignoring the droning voice of the old man talking up front,
I let my thoughts wander. As usual, they went back to my youth. Growing up in
the Seventies and Eighties, I was blissfully ignorant of how screwed-up my life
would turn out when I reached the A-word: Adulthood.
I’m the oldest sibling of three girls born into a
middle-class family. We grew up living in the suburbs, safely hidden from the
dangers of “the big city.” God, life back then had been a breeze. We walked to
school, without fear of stranger danger, on sidewalks wide enough for three
people to stand side by side, with shade provided by sprawling oak trees. We
played with our friends—outside, mind you—until the streetlight in our
cul-de-sac buzzed, ready to come on. …
