Interview and Giveaway with Rebecca Graf



Welcome, Rebecca Graf! Please start off by telling us a little about yourself.
I am a Southern girl living in Wisconsin. I am married with three children. My degree was in accounting which I worked in for twenty years. Now, I stay at home working online and writing.


Is Deep Connections a single title, or part of a series?
It is the first in a trilogy: Deep Connections, Dark Connections, Deadly Connections


What were your inspirations for the story?
I had a dream on night about a man and woman who discovered they were in love by the electrical shock they received when they touched. It morphed into something really different.

Please share your setting for Deep Connections. Have you ever lived or visited there? If so, what did you like most?   
The setting is in a small town and on a Native American reservation. Though I named the town, I never said where it was located. I wanted it to be anywhere. I did fashion much of the woods based on northern Wisconsin where I lived for a few years.

When did the writing bug first bite?
I’ve always had the urge but never tried it. It wasn’t until a few years ago that I tried it with a children’s story.

Who are you favorite authors, book/series?
I love Tom Clancy, Amanda Quick, and Hy Conrad.


What is your most favorite childhood memory?
I think it is when the electricity went out. I was about five or six. We lived in an old farmhouse in Kentucky. My mother lit the hurricane lamp and pulled out the box of books I had. We read through the whole box before the lights came back on.


Do you have any hobbies or special things you like to do in your spear time?
I love to read and crochet. I’m trying to learn to knit but haven’t had time in forever. J


Favorite eye color?
Dark blue.

Book Description:

Just as love appears, so does the darkness. With her heart reaching out for one man, Brenna finds herself the target of an unknown stalker. Who is he? What does he want? How far will he go for her? Death is an option. Brenna discovers more than she bargained for and learns that the stalker will kill for her. It all comes down to decisions, and no matter what she chooses it will demand sacrifice and someone's blood.

Excerpt:

Brenna’s eyes fluttered open to see a blur of trees flying by.  Her head pounded and her stomach began to roll from the pain she felt and the fast-changing scenery.  A careful look at her surroundings told her she was in some older model car.  She inhaled deeply to calm herself, but confusion set in as her senses were assaulted by unfamiliar smells.  Her eyes widened in fright as terrifying memories began to flood her mind.  Turning slowly, afraid of what she might see, she gazed at the man behind the wheel of the speeding car.  She shivered when she saw he was just as repulsive as she remembered.  Who was he and what did he want with her?

Sensing her stare, a pair of dark, soulless eyes turned towards her.  A smile appeared on his unkempt face.  “Well, well, sleeping beauty awakes.”  Brenna’s stomach rolled again as she felt his eyes slide hungrily over her body.  She pushed up against the door in an effort to put as much distance between the two of them as she could, but he shook his head in disapproval.  “No need to be  dramatic.”  He turned his attention back to the road.  “We both know you won’t jump out.”
