Take some time to relax today. We are. We're sitting down with author Auden Johnson today. Grab a cup of coffee and come join us.
SC: Tell me a little bit about your main character of this book.
AJ: Kiran Ava is an Other. She was born with a magical ability and a certain sensitivity to the paranormal. She can explode certain parts of a person with her eyes. When she was younger, Kiran had to wear protective glasses. If she stared at someone too long, her power thought she wanted to attack them. Kiran has better control now though, she does have issues when she’s annoyed with someone or when her power’s been compromised. She’s now part of a team of Other paranormal investigators.
SC: You had us at paranormal. Perhaps a moot question, but do you believe in the paranormal and if so, do you have an experience you can share?
AJ: I sit in the middle.
AJ: I wouldn’t say I 100% believe in the paranormal but I like the idea that there are things, even in now, that we can’t explain. Stories of supposedly true paranormal encounters and real haunted places like the Hoia Baciu forest are interesting.
SC: What titles are you working on now that you can tell us about?
AJ: Kiran’s returning in Book 2, The Wailing Town. That’s coming out in October. I also have The Jura series which is a fantasy romance story set in apocalyptic world. I’ve released 3 books in the series. I had been working on Book 4 but stopped because life happens. I’m hoping to release that book next year.
Sounds like we should let you go. Thanks for coming over. We'll take a look at your book now.
