I’m from a large family, not the immediate, I only have one sister (who also writes as PK Corey though not supernatural) but Daddy’s family was large – seven boys and one girl and they were fairly prolific. Therefore I have a lot of cousins and know them all. Can’t say I know their spouses and children as well, though I do in many cases. (The author Carolyn Stoor Steele is one of us – check her stuff out!)
Last month was our 34th annual Cousins’ Reunion (yes 34!) and getting together with them kept sparking ideas to continue writing in the Before You world I created.
Before You is definitely considered supernatural, through different from many I’ve read. I don’t as a rule write suspense or mystery but, hey, you have to break out occasionally and this story took me in that direction.
Here’s the blurb –
When Jocelyn decides to take a two-week vacation away from the chaos of the city and work, she expects to just relax and enjoy. Instead, after taking an impromptu exit off the highway the car quits and she’s stuck in some Podunk town in nowhere North Carolina. But the scenery is great – especially the guy who tows in her car.
Noah is helping his cousin out for the afternoon at the garage and is more than pleasantly surprised when the city girl shows up needing help.
Neither can foresee what drew her to that exit or what they will uncover trying to discover what has frightened her so. But they will do it, together.
Do spooky things happen in your family? Could your grandmother see things others couldn’t? Both of mine could and it led to jokes and some uneasy glances occasionally. I’d love to hear about your experiences with the weird – who knows what it might spark!
