Patricia Lynne & A Quick Bite

Please welcome my friend Patricia Lynne to the blog today!

***
I had some questions for Patricia...

What attracts you to the paranormal genre?
I'm not entirely sure to be honest. I think it's the possibilities. You can take the myths and creatures and add twists and turns, but you don't want to worry about it being unrealistic as much as if you were writing about something we see in every day life.
Love that - the possibilities are endless and entertaining!!

After writing some of your scarier work, do you ever find it hard to sleep at night?
Nope because I used to read about serial killers before bed and that was scary.
EEK! I can't imagine! My nightmares would be endless!

What's next up?
Next is a collection of 3 short stories about the angels and devils who sit on our shoulders and whisper in our ears called Influenced. The first story in the collection is already available for free.
What a cool concept!! Can't wait to read that one!

What's your favourite Quick Bite? (food not story!)
That is easy: grilled cheese sandwiches as tomato soup. I requested that for nearly all my birthdays growing up. Sadly because of an autoimmune disease, I can't eat it anymore.
Awww! Grilled cheese is one of my all-time faves too!

Blurb
Vampires.
Werewolves.
Zombies.

These monsters tickle our imagination.

Sink your teeth into a collection of tales about paranormal creatures that go bump in the night. Each story is told in exactly 200 words and designed to give you a quick bite no matter how busy your day is.

Are you hungry?

About the Author
Patricia Josephine is a writer of Urban Fantasy and Sci-Fi Romance books. She actually never set out to become a writer, and in fact, she was more interested in art and band in high school and college. Her dreams were of becoming an artist like Picasso. On a whim, she wrote down a story bouncing in her head for fun. That was the start of her writing journey, and she hasn't regretted a moment. When she's not writing, she's watching Doctor Who or reading about serial killers. She's an avid knitter. One can never have too much yarn. She writes Young Adult Paranormal, Science Fiction, and Fantasy under the name Patricia Lynne.

Patricia lives with her husband in Michigan, hopes one day to have what will resemble a small petting zoo, and has a fondness for dying her hair the colors of the rainbow.

My review:

While this isn't my usual type of read (I'm a guaranteed Happy Ending type of reader!) I really, really liked it! This book completely pulled me in. I enjoyed the format of 200 word stories. These are fascinating snippets from a variety of viewpoints.

From spooky to serious to silly to thought-provoking to heart-felt, you'll find it all in these snippets.

I'm a reader who reads because of the emotions in the words and A Quick Bite is full of emotion and a fun read! Pick up your copy - I bet you'll enjoy!

  3. I feel like I should have added to my answer about reading about serial killers that I often scared myself on the way to bed afterwards.
    Thanks for having me, Jemi!

  4. Huge congratulations to Patricia.
    I am a multi-genre reader (and there are few I refuse to try). Her books sounds like a heap of fun. Flash fiction is no easy write, and requires skill and discipline. It is very easy and rewarding to read though.
    Sigh on the no cheese front. I would be a vegan if it was not for cheese.

    1. I remember eating grilled cheese in a restaurant and thinking that it must be something really difficult to make! So good :)
