Author Myra McEntire stopped by this week to answer my Very Important Questions. She also let me know that she has a contest on her site – http://myramcentire.com – that will run from June 18th to June 25th. She’ll be giving away signed copies of HOURGLASS and TIMEPIECE, signed posters of the covers, a goodie basket inspired by her characters, and signed books from other authors!
And now for the questions!
At age eight, what did you want to be when you grew up? And at age eighteen? And while you’re at it, what about at age twenty-eight?
Myra McEntire: Age 8 = Writer
Age 18 = College English professor
Age 28 = Writer and college English professor!
Which Breakfast-Club-style label would have best fit your teenage self?
ME: I hung out with the princesses, but I was a basket case at heart.
Without giving away too much from your newest book, which character or scene from it are you the most pleased to have created, and why?
ME: I love Kaleb. His faults are many, but his virtues are strong.
Which are your favorite movies to watch again and again?
ME: TANGLED. It’s like some kind of drug. And Home Alone one and two. My boys watch that one with me.
And, now, the most important question of all: Beatles or Elvis? Please support your answer. 😉
Elvis. I’m from Tennessee! (And part of Timepiece is set in Memphis!)
Kaleb Ballard was never supposed to be able to see ripples—cracks in time. Are Kaleb’s powers expanding, or is something very wrong? Before Kaleb can find out, Jonathan Landers, the man who tried to murder his father, reappears. Why is he back, and what, or whom, does he want?
In the wake of Landers’s return, the Hourglass organization is offered an ultimatum by a mysterious man. Either they find Landers and the research he has stolen on people who might carry the time gene, or time will be altered—with devastating results for the people Kaleb loves most.
Now Kaleb, Emerson, Michael, and the other Hourglass recruits have no choice but to use their extraordinary powers to find Landers. But where do they even start? And when? Even if they succeed, just finding him may not be enough. . . .
The follow-up to Hourglass, Timepiece blends the paranormal, science-fiction, mystery, and suspense genres into a nonstop thrill ride where every second counts.
ABOUT MYRA McENTIRE:
Myra McEntire knows the words to every R&B hit of the last decade, but since she lives in Nashville, the country music capital of America, her lyrical talents go sadly unappreciated. She’s chosen, instead, to channel her “mad word skills” into creating stories. She’s an avid Doctor Who fan and will argue passionately about which incarnation is the best.
