Q&A with author Adelle Laudan & GIVEAWAY


Have you ever read a book that made you think 'wow'? If so, what book was it and why did it have such an effect on you?
Actually it’s the book I’m reading now. “The heartwrenchingly honest, hysterically funny, and brutally truthful life and times of biker author Amy White.” I am blown away by the similarities between this author and my own life. The biggest difference is, she grew up deep in the South and I am a Canadian.
A must read – Only $3 for the ebook (buy from amazon)

Who is your favourite author and why?
Jean M Auel is a master at painting a vivid picture through words. I fell in love with the Earth Children’s Series and like to think I’ve learned a thing or two from this amazing author.

Who, or what, inspires you?
There are so many things that inspire me. My children inspire me to persevere and keep writing. Movies that touch my heart...the sound of a Harley in the distance...the scent of fresh cut grass...my past...music...

Where is your favourite place to write?

At my desk. I have my desk in a cozy corner in my dining area with a window overlooking the parking lot LOL Luckily there is a nice park on the other side of it.

What is your book about?
Mystified is a love story. It takes place on Manitoulin Island here in Ontario, Canada. The setting is an Ojibwa village. Nara embraces her heritage and dreams of opening a School of the Arts to ensure her forefathers traditions, music and handcrafted artistry is not lost for the next generation.
Tokoda has rock n roll and Harley’s in his blood. He loves his family, and is proud to be an Ojibwa, but couldn’t leave the Island fast enough when he came of age, to pursue his dream of being in a band.
Five years later, Tokoda is pulled away from his band; Colt Harley after a boating accident claims both parents’ lives and leaves his three sisters to fend for themselves. He returns to the Island to make sure his sisters’ are situated, fully intending to return to his life on the mainland.
Nara is thrilled to see her teenage crush return home. There is an undeniable chemistry between the two, when the Princess of the Underwater rises up from the lake and a series of incidents throws them both back in time, at opposite sides of the Island...

You’ll have to buy the book to find out what happens next...*wink

What is your favourite film that was based on a book?
The Notebook. It has to be one of the greatest love stories of our generation. No matter how many times I watch this movie, it always makes me tear up at the end.

If your book was made into a film, who would you like to play the main characters?
I’ve used the band, Colt Harley in my book.
Steven Van Trans is my vision of Tokoda.

I would like to see Tinsel Korey, who played Emily Young in Twilight, New Moon, as Nara.

Tell us a random fact about yourself.
I have a 90% hearing loss. I do use two hearing aids, but there are some things I simply cannot hear. People with accents are very difficult for me to understand. The plus side, when I hear something I’d rather not...I simply turn them off *wink

Tell us something interesting about the area where you live.
I moved to the big city three years ago after spending most of my life in very small, rural towns. Hamilton, Ontario offers Ghost Walks through many historical buildings believed to be haunted. All have recorded sightings throughout history. http://www.hauntedhamilton.com/ghostwalks/
