COME BACK TO ME
Sapphire Blue Publishing
Sailing around the Caribbean to the picturesque island of Ballena Azul sounded like the perfect vacation to Erin Brady. Until her ex showed up.
Ryan McKinnon boarded the cruise with one thought in mind, win back his former fiancée. Then news of a missing woman put them both in the middle of a mystery of disappearances.
Can they overcome their past mistakes and work together to unmask the kidnapper? Or will Erin become the next victim of a human trafficker?
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
J.S. Nichols lives in a small town in Virginia with her husband, two children and two dogs. She’s been writing stories since high school but didn’t start to pursue her dream of publication until two years ago. A sweet-tea addict, she’s in a never-ending search for the perfect piece of chocolate.
THE Q&A GRILLING
ANGI: How often to you get lost in a story?
JESS: Every chance I get. If I’m not writing or plotting, I’m reading.
ANGI: What’s the first book you remember reading?
JESS: Horton Hears Hatches the Egg. I think I was three. I loved it so much, I had it memorized. It was also the first book I read to my children.
ANGI: What’s your favorite fairy tale?
JESS: Beauty & the Beast. I love that beauty comes from within. When love is there, everyone is beautiful.
ANGI: What’s your favorite cartoon character?
JESS: Fiona from Shrek. She tries to be a damsel in distress because that’s what’s expected of her, but her true nature shines through when Robin’s gang shows up in the first movie. She’s tough and capable but still is dreamer. I love that about her.
ANGI: What turns you off like nothing else?
JESS: Injustice. I believe in Karma, so I find it frustrating when justice isn’t served in life and especially in a story.
ANGI: Where do you read and how often?
JESS: Every week and pretty much everywhere. I have a Kindle so I turn on the read-to-me feature and listen to books in the car.
ANGI: What sound or noise do you love?
JESS: Laughter. I love to hear people laughing, especially my children.
ANGI: Fairy Tale or Action Adventure?
JESS: A mix of the two. Fairy tales have lessons to teach but nothing is quite as exciting as some high stakes action. Hmmm…probably why Fiona is so appealing to me.
ANGI: What was the first story you remember writing?
JESS: The first story was a futuristic, post-apocalyptic story about a teenager who is injured when a bomb explodes and awakens six hundred years in the future. I spent lunch hours during my junior year of high school reading scenes from my story to my classmates. That’s when I knew I wanted to be a published writer. Today, I write suspense and paranormal—I haven’t written anything post apocalyptic since. *grin*
ANGI: What’s your favorite movie of all time?
JESS: Pride and Prejudice (The Colin Firth version)—Darcy is just too sexy. Tall, dark, quiet, honorable and so completely flawed that he’s lovable.
ANGI: Who’s your favorite villain?
JESS: Stryker by Sherrilyn Kenyon. He’s a villain you love to hate and yet, he’s so relatable. He wasn’t always evil and he has his own code of ethics. So there are moments when you feel sorry for him. He’s a character so beautifully drawn, so completely evil, but when the author wrote his story, I cheered when he finally found love.
ANGI’S GOTTA ASK: So, Jess unfortunately the release of your debut book has been delayed and you must be terribly disappointed... But the excitement must be keeping you awake at night. What’s the first thing you’re going to do on release day?
JESS’s GOTTA ANSWER: My boys have a bottle of Sparkling Cider chilling in the refrigerator for the occasion. As soon as I hear Come Back To Me has been released, we’re popping the top and celebrating!
