Here are some fun author interview questions!
What other hobbies do you enjoy when you are not writing?
I love running and working in my yard and garden and baking.

A lot of authors I have noticed have music as a way to help with their writing. Is this something that you have used as well? If not what are some things you have used?

I like to play instrumental music while I’m writing. It helps me keep my pace up. There is usually a theme song for each book that I listen to when I’m not writing. It helps me remember the feeling of the book I’m working on at the time. For Storm, it’s Wild Montana Skies by John Denver.

Time for a Snippet!

Boots cleared his throat. “Missing one or two steers in the round up is one thing. Even three or four, but eleven? You’ve worked this ranch long enough to know . . .” Boots let his voice trail off.

“You’re right, Boots. I just can’t let Taggert think he’s right.”

“Even when he is?”

“He’s always poking his nose around here wanting to know just how everything is going.”

“Or how a particular red-head is doing anyway.”

I rolled my eyes. “If he were interested, he would have made some changes years ago when we were both a lot younger.”

“Maybe he tried. You’ve never been the easiest person to get close to.” Boots’ eyes twinkled mischievously.

“I’m independent. If he can’t handle that, he can’t handle the rest of me.”

“A man wants to be needed, trusted.”

“Then he should do something worthy of being trusted, not try and steal my ranch hand’s hours every week. Can you get the water going to the corral? Daylight’s burning while we talk about things we can’t change.” I turned Mystic toward the open pasture.

Monster Mash Book Blitz Countdown Event Cowardly Witness by Ayr Bray @AyrBray

Cowardly Witness

by Ayr Bray

 Cowardly Witness simmers with secrets and suspense.


Matthew Poe is the only witness in a case of murder and corruption in the lead mining industry. After an attempt is made on his life, he seeks refuge at Pemberley. 

Mr. Darcy, bound by honour and duty to his King and country, agrees to take him in, though his presence puts everyone at Pemberley in danger—including Darcy’s new bride, Elizabeth. 

When Mr. Poe’s secret is revealed with disastrous consequences, will Darcy succeed in protecting his loved ones and the witness, or will he be forced to choose between family and honour? 

In Cowardly Witness, Ayr Bray masterfully creates a world around Pemberley electrified with the excitement and intrigue of a riveting suspense story.

“From an early age I have always been fascinated by the written word and the mood and atmosphere it creates for a reader; especially those books that affect me and transport me to some far-off place. These are the elements I strive to create in my books. My books in many ways record what most affects me: my feelings and experiences with family, friends, and those I have run into on my life’s journey. My hope is that in my books you will find something that touches you, something which will resonate in your soul and remind you that you are strong and can overcome anything, especially if you have the support of loving friends and family.” – Ayr Bray

Ayr Bray is from the Pacific Northwest, but travels as much as possible so she doesn’t have to deal with the cold.

Q & A With the Author

When did you know you wanted to write books?

I knew I wanted to write stories from the time I was nine and saw my mom writing. Though she was never published she will always be my example of an accomplished writer/author.

What other hobbies do you enjoy when you are not writing?

My family travels the USA 100% of our time, so we love to explore new areas. My favorite place on Earth is anywhere near the ocean with a beach. I love to sail and swim.

Ayr loves to hear from readers. Connect with her at her website or on Facebook at




A knock came upon the door.

“Enter,” Darcy called out, releasing Elizabeth’s hand and returning his attention to his breakfast.

“Mr. Jonas Hammond to see you sir,” Mr. Reynolds announced entering with the inquisitor’s card on a silver tray for Darcy’s inspection.

“Please show him into my study and tell him I will come directly.”

Mr Reynolds bowed and retreated from the room, closing the door behind him.

“I wonder what brings Mr. Hammond here, and so early in the day?” Darcy said, glancing at his pocket watch. Tucking it back into his pocket he hurried to finish his food.

“Who is this Me Hammond, my dear?” Elizabeth inquired.

“He is the inquisitor over Derbyshire.”

“Why do you suppose he has come here?” Elizabeth asked. “I hope there is no trouble with the tenants.”

“I shouldn’t think so. If you will excuse me, I will go to him now.”

“Yes, or course. You will find me in the sitting room when your meeting is through.”

Darcy took his leave of him wife and went to his study with long, purposeful strides. Upon entering, he found Mr. Hammond and another man. The second man was a little dirty and unkempt and had an arm cradled in a sling tied around his neck. His gaze remained on the floor; he never looked up even to acknowledge Darcy’s entrance.

Dream big and hope harder and you will make your dreams come true.  


Snippet Time!

Now contemplating the misty water at my feet, and the humid smell in my nose, I wonder if the shadows have the same power in the water as they do on land. After all, I am a good swimmer and maybe I can out-swim them.

Who am I kidding? I know nothing about the shadows, vapor or whatever they are. I had never seen them until they attacked Father. He seemed to know them though. Why would he have kept it a secret?

“What do they want from me?” I cry.

It startles me to hear other feet scurrying away from the water’s edge. With my heart in my mouth, I listen carefully to the echoes. They are small and light. Probably a gazelle my cry had startled.

“Where are you?” My half-cracked voice comes out as if someone has his hands around my neck. My eyes roam in an effort to penetrate the dark mantel that surrounds me. Then a horrible thought crosses my mind. Do the shadows hide there?

Monster Mash Book Blitz Countdown Event Birthright by Nichole Giles @nicholegiles


by Nichole Giles

Two months ago, Abigail Johnson saved the life of the boy she believes is her destiny and defeated an army of demons that have pursued her ancestors for centuries. Now, she and Kye should be taking their place as leaders of the new generation of Gifted. But the curse they thought was broken has returned, and every minute together brings them closer to death. When remaining shadow demons attack again, the Dragons send Abby to Mexico. Being apart from Kye is slowly killing her soul, and it turns out she isn’t any safer here than she was back home. The shadows have tracked her, the locals expect her to help with their own demon problems, and the more time she spends away from Kye, the more she doubts the destiny that ties them together. When the demons destroy her safe house, Abby has no choice but to take the fight to them. But the arrival of an old nemesis throws their careful plans into disarray, and Abby and her friends find themselves facing new adversaries in a battle that turns fatal. This time, not everyone will make it out alive.

Q & A with Author

A lot of authors I have noticed have music as a way to help with their writing. Is this something that you have used as well? If not what are some things you have used?

It depends on the day. When I’m really struggling with a story, sometimes instrumental music that sets the tone of what I’m writing really does help. Same with when I’m writing a love scene. Sometimes love songs help things along. So yes. I do sometimes use music.

Is there a message you would like readers to get out of this book? What is it?

I don’t generally try to put “messages” in my stories, but I do think every story has a theme. This one seems to be about finding your own strength and using your inner light to fuel it.
