Each day is a struggle for Amanda Gleason’s newborn son as he battles a rare immune deficiency. Justin’s best chance for a cure lies with his father, who was brutally murdered before Amanda even realized she carried his child. Or was he?
One emailed photo changes everything, planting a seed of doubt that Amanda latches onto for dear life: a recent photo of a man who looks exactly like Paul. Could Justin’s father be alive? The mother in her is desperate to find out. But tracking down a ghost when every second counts is not for amateurs.
Forensic Instincts is the one team up for the challenge.
The manhunt is on for the elusive father. Yet the further the team digs into Paul’s past, the more questions are raised about whether the man Amanda fell in love with ever really existed at all.
Dark secrets. Carefully crafted lies. From the Congressional halls of Washington D.C. to exclusive Hamptons manors, there are ruthless people who would stop at nothing to make Forensic Instincts forget about the man Amanda desperately needs to find.
Little do they realize that once Forensic Instincts takes the case, nothing will stop them from uncovering the shocking truth that transcends THE LINE BETWEEN HERE AND GONE.
Q: Hi Andrea! Welcome to the blog. Tell me, what is your daily routine as a writer?
A: My day doesn't begin until I've had my morning cup of coffee. I love my new Keurig. It lets me brew one cup at a time so I can keep the fresh caffeine stream coming. Then I check emails and look at social media (Facebook, Twitter) before I start writing. I take frequent breaks to play with my Pomeranian or Google something for research.
Q: Is there a specific element in your writing that you find most challenging?
A: Descriptions. I’m much more audial than visual, so I tend towards writing “she got dressed” rather than detailing her clothing. Whereas dialog comes naturally to me, so I concentrate hard on being more descriptive.
Q: Describe your latest book in 15 words or fewer.
A: A mother is desperately searching for the father of her newborn baby – hoping that he’s alive and is a donor match to save her critically ill son.
Q: If you had to do it all over again, would you change anything in the book?
A: Not right now. But I'm my own worst critic, so as time goes on, I'm sure I'll find things that bother me. Of course hindsight is always 20/20.
Q: Do you have any quirks that come out while you are writing?
A: Interesting question! I am a big communicator. I don’t believe in misunderstandings between characters – especially when it’s contrived because someone neglected to mention something important. I guess that’s why my novels are full of dialog.
Here is the excerpt for today:
Numbly, Amanda nodded.She held Justin for one more brief, desperate moment, then kissed his soft cheek and handed him over to the nurse. How many times had she done that in the past few days?
