Leticia has a dark secret, and somebody somewhere knows what it is. After being tormented and brutally attacked, it becomes obvious they want her dead. A mysterious group come to her aid. They want to fight by her side and help her win the war someone has declared on her. Together, they present a force to be reckoned with. Love, loss and longing put strains on the alliance. Not only must they fight their enemies, but their own fears and desires. Leticia must also face a harsh reality. If she wants a happy future, she must first confront her past.
Was this it? Was this to be my fate? Was I meant to spend the rest of my life in exile, isolation, never to interact with anyone ever again or risk losing my life? I stood there, on the edge of the deathly sharp bend in the back country road, the Devil’s Elbow, facing the crack in the hills where, according to the legend, the devil landed after being struck down by God himself; his elbow causing the gap in the hills. Behind me, the street lights of Tintwistle, Glossop and Mottram, shining so brightly that the darkening clouds above seemed to have a reddish tint to them. The towns would be full of life, people going about their business, most of them happily enjoying a night out with their families or friends, maybe both. How I wished I could join them.
In front of me lay my fate, the steep climb to the top of the peak, then only the seemingly endless stretch of barren land. Their only decoration being old rocks, the odd stream, trees and wildflowers. Nobody would find me here. Not many people would walk up here. The land and weather could be perilous, unless people were incredibly fit and well prepared; I doubt they would tackle these hills. I would be safe and I would go un-noticed.
I have lived in Droylsden, Manchester, all my life. I live with my parents, my younger sister, Cheryl and her little girl Faith.
I never knew what I wanted to do with my life until I began writing. This is my dream. I get most of my inspiration from music, I’ll sit there listening to it and suddenly I’m no longer in the room. My stories play like videos in my mind, then I go and write them down.
I’m a very dark person, I love anything spooky, supernatural, or unexplainable, and so that’s the genre I want to write in for the rest of my life.
I love watching scary films, although I find it very hard to find one these days that actually frighten me.
I also love getting creative with graphics. I've designed over twenty book covers so far. I create promo art and even book trailers.
I have had a love of photography from being a child. I have literally thousands of photographs which I have taken over the years. Now, I have a professional DSLR camera and I'm looking to do photography as well as my graphics as a sideline project.

I'm thrilled to have you here today, Lindsay Anne! Please tell us a bit about yourself and your family. Don’t give away any secrets but what are you about?
I live at home with my mum, dad, sister and niece Faith. We also have a little Jack Russell and several fish. So as you can imagine, our house can be a little chaotic at times.
We're all known for being very straightforward, open and honest people. But very blunt. I myself can appear to be rather abrupt and brutal, but I never mean any harm by what I say.
I'm a very dark and rather morbid person. I have a love of anything dark, gothic and outright strange. I've never been any different. I guess I can be rather freaky at times, lol. I also spend most of my time living in a dark fantasy world.
One of your favorite quotes?
“Listen to them - children of the night. What music they make.”
Bram Stoker, Dracula
What dreams have been realized as a result of your writing?
I’ve realized that you can achieve anything as long as you are prepared to work for it.
About the book:
How did you choose the genre you write in?
Urban Fantasy/Paranormal Romance are the only genre’s I’ve ever wanted to write. I’ve had a love of the paranormal, fantastical creatures and horror since before I can remember. It just wouldn’t feel right writing about anything else. I don’t know if it would even be possible for me to write outside of that genre. I have I no idea what I would do.
What are you currently working on?
Well I have a book releasing on May 15th. Revelations, the last in my Bloodlines Trilogy. I’m working on Betrayal which is the sequel to Leticia, and I have self published a short story which is being turned into a series. I’m also writing an adult Urban Fantasy, but that’s very hush hush at the moment.
If you gave one of your characters an opportunity to speak for themselves, what would they say?
Leticia – “Just because you cannot see it with your own eyes, doesn’t mean they don’t exist.”
Is there anything that you would like to say to your readers and fans?
I’d like to say thank you for taking the time to read this post, and if you read any of my books, I do hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed writing them. :)
Cookies or Cake?
Ice tea or lemonade?
Yuk! Neither…. Pepsi Max or a Latte lol.
Night or day?
Definitely night. It wouldn’t bother me if I never saw daylight ever again.
Laptop or desktop for writing?
