#EllieKeys 31+ Days of Authors (Author Interviews)

post-677-0-88106900-1361449189_thumb

I’m an author. I come up with ideas and think on things that can be chalked up to dreams and nothing more. Eleven days ago I came up with a whopper of an idea. I decided I wanted to interview authors who are my friends and some that I don’t usually speak with on a regular basis. The point of the grand scheme was for me to learn some interesting things about authors I admire and have qualities I aspire to have in my life. 

My initial thought was “go big or go home!” I randomized my list. If the author’s name popped into my head, I put them on my list. What I hadn’t expected was the number of people that immediately responded. The other thing I didn’t expect were some of the names that said the magic word: YES! I won’t tell you what names shocked me, I’ll let you figure it out for yourself. 

yes-no-maybe

For the next month or so, I am going to post the responses to the eleven questions that I posed to each author. (five serious and six fun) I’ll share them on all three of my blogs. (one is for my other pen name)  I am also going to post the interview responses in my monthly newsletter. I’m so psyched to share the things they shared with me.

°•☆•°Blog☆Hop°•☆•°
THE HIGHLY CAPABLE
Jayme Beddingfield

What would you do if you could control objects with your mind?

Would you be able to choose between right and wrong?

Eighteen-year-old Ruby Dawson was born with the powers to move things
with her mind. She thought she was the only one of her kind until she
met Tristan-a self-destructive drug addict and a crew of super-powered
thieves. Working in the shadows, the crew follows their fire conjuring
leader, Madison, as they descend further and further into the world of
organized crime.

Ruby finds herself in a whirlwind of wrong decisions, lies, murder, and
realizations she isn’t ready to face. As Ruby watches Tristan disappear
further into his drug addiction and her team fight for more money and
territory, she struggles with who she has become. Can Ruby walk away
from the closest thing she has to a family and be the hero she is
actually meant to be?

The Highly Capable- Volume One of the Ruby Dawson Saga, an urban
fantasy, is a tormenting and emotional tale of self-discovery.

Excerpt:

6d5bc-excerpt

“Mother,” Evian stated curtly, trying to regain some semblance of control of his erratic heart rate.

“Son,” she responded just as curtly. She’s going to dish it as well as he gave it, he thought to himself.

“I just left Auntie Vivi’s, and I can’t say that I’m all too pleased with what she told me,” Evian stated, trying not to allow his mind to drift too far away from his purpose. He didn’t want to dwell on the pain of what his aunt had revealed.

“I can’t say that I am all that pleased that your auntie chose to share what was not hers to share,” his mother stated in response.

“How is it that you have a belief that this was not hers to share? How is it that you actually believe that I didn’t have a right to know . . . to understand? Are you really that cold and unfeeling?” Evian asked, knowing that the fire was building within. A fire that was causing his mind to dwell on the heartache her coldness made him feel. He tried to squelch the fire within and returned his focus to his true reason for being there. She spoke before he could continue.

“I have taken certain . . . liberties in my life . . . and with your life. Such things I don’t feel obligated to explain because every choice that I made was for the betterment of our family,” she stated with an edge to her voice as she pointed between the two of them. She then leveled him with the cut of her eyes. “You think that your Auntie is telling you tidbits about yourself and our family because she wants you to better know yourself?” she asked, but it seemed to be more of a statement since she really asked as if she knew he had no rational response.

The question was there, but it was spoken with such distaste and annoyance that Evian couldn’t possibly know if he should attempt to actually answer or not. He warred with himself. If he came up with a response, would it be enough to have his mother thrown off by it? Would it be enough to warrant his frustration or wipe the all-knowing look off of her face? His internal battle continued. After a couple moments of silence, she lifted her eyebrows and shrugged her shoulders. This was always a signifier that she was waiting with not-so-bated breath for his reply, but was also preparing to move on to another subject or dismiss him. Evian decided for the fight versus flight approach.

“She has been the one that picked up the broken pieces of me when you were too busy to do it,” he seethed. He felt the flames of fury being fanned and with that feeling came a more callous attitude. Evian began not to care that Katerina was his mother or that they were two sides of the same coin.

“Just how do you think she came to be the person who was there to put those ‘pieces’ together? Did you ever see her going off to work? Did you ever see her taking care of the menial day-to-day tasks like grocery shopping? Paying the bills? Shopping for your clothing? Schoolbooks? Did you ever see her personally take you to any appointment? Or game for that matter? Was she ever on the sidelines cheering you on? Did she ever have the conversations that made you the man that you have become?” she sat, finally, as if she were exhausted from having a conversation that she’d had countless times before. Could it be possible that she may have thought on this conversation happening between the two of them? No. That wasn’t possible. His mother was just that in name only.

“The question or questions should be did I see you doing any of those things,” Evian threw the words at his mother with all of the resentment and dejection that he felt inside.
