Captive – A New Life Series

Formerly Life of Recovery

To what lengths would you go to break away from a life filled with pain and suffering?

Tori Farrell has lived a dangerous life. When you grow up with a Motorcycle Gang of Mercenaries and Drug Lords like the Dragons, a normal life is more like a fairytale. For years, she accepted her dark reality, a world consisting of drugs, sex, violence and murder. In the end, she learned the most valuable lesson: survival.

After years of being ruled by the Dragons, Tori uses her skills of seduction and assassination to free herself from the grasp of the people who vowed they would never let her go. Taken in by the FBI, she fears not everything is what it seems, and soon finds herself lost in a web of lies and deceit. She thought getting away from the Dragons would put her on a path to a new and better life, but now she must face the cold hard truth” there is always a price to be paid.

˃˃˃ Interview 


If you could describe your book in three words, what would they be?

Recently, someone sent me a message and I like theirs, but it was only two words (holy sh*t) and I really LOVED that one… so let me just say…

Unescapably Exhilarating Terror

Are experiences based on someone you know, or events in your own life? I pull from everything around me and add a lot of imagination. A few things are loosely from my own past, but mostly they are ‘what if’ scenarios or sometimes ways that I wish things had been, rather than the way they are. I know that is going to sound confusing, because so many parts of my story are pitch black dark, but there is some sunshine here and there, too.

Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp? Oh yes, and I love when people pick up on it and talk about how strong my heroine is. She is most definitely a survivor and that is thing I want to promote most through my work – we only get one shot at this thing called life, so we have to make the best of it, no matter how crappy some parts can be. Don’t let those things weigh you down… take a deep breath and walk towards the light.

Tell me a little more about your book.

Well, this one is more than a book. It is a series, basically because it was too long to fit into a single novel. It traces the life of a young woman where she has been found, flashes back to get a glimpse of her horrific past, and carries forward along her path to redemption.

Along the way, there will be many ups and downs, secrets to learn, mysteries to unravel, and discoveries to be made. Some of them will be happy, some sad, and some shocking. It will be anything but boring. Keep in mind, my story has lots of layers, twists and turns, and I truly believe no two people will see it exactly the same way, and that makes me very happy.

Is there anything about one of your books you totally hate and wish you could change, but everyone else seems to like?

No actually, I think it is the opposite. People continually tell me the ending is ‘killing’ them because I have to chop the story somewhere… let’s face it, the series is 1500 pages + because the story is that long (kind of like Harry Potter, it won’t be over until we get to the end)… so don’t worry about the ‘cliff hanger’ and enjoy the ride… after all we don’t read stories for the ending, otherwise we would just read the last chapter and forget the rest… it’s the getting there that makes it fun.

Ok yeah… I could have told you who the guy was… but trust me – you will enjoy it a lot more after you have thought about it a bit before you find out =)

Do you ever get writer’s block? What do you do when it happens?

I don’t really call it writer’s block. Sometimes the story is flowing and sometimes it isn’t. If it is something I need to work through that will take time, I just walk away and let it percolate for a few days, and it will work itself out. If I need it resolved right now so I can push on, I go take a hot shower and just keep it turning in my head. Often, it will just suddenly present the path in front of me and I am off again.

˃˃˃ WARNING: GRAPHIC SCENES

Author bio:-

Anyone who knows me could tell you, I am a friendly kind of person, never met a stranger and take up conversations anywhere at any time. I work hard, and my mind never seems to shut down, as I wake up often in the middle of the night with ideas pouring out and demanding to be dealt with. Of course that means much of my books were written in the middle of the night.

I grew up and still live in the great state of Texas where everything is bigger, where we have warm weather and a central location. I love my state, my town, and my family, which includes my four sons, my significant other, and many friends as well.

I have thoroughly enjoyed writing the books that are currently available and hope you will enjoy reading them just as much. And of course, there will be many more stories to come.
