Meet Indie Writers Unite author Laura Yirak
on the IWU Blog Tour
A group of writers have converged on Facebook under the banner of "Indie Writers Unite!" Blog touring is a fun way to get to know new authors and discover some awesome reads. My Guest this week from the Indie Authors Unite Blog Tour is Laura Yirak., author of DELIVERED TO ETERNITY
Here is Lauraís entertaining bio:
Laura Yirak spent her early years in Scotland attending a very old and supposedly haunted Catholic school. The place terrified her but she loved the idea that there was a "Headless Nun" roaming the halls.
In her pre-teens she moved to the United States. She spent her first two years in college writing poetry and managed to lose her entire collection. She knows it's out there somewhere!
Writing is her passion! She is currently working on a psycho-thriller set on the Washington coast, a fully illustrated children's book, and a collection of poems.
DT: Wow, how could you not be a writer with a haunted Catholic Scottish school in your past? Can you share one of your most vivid memories from that time?
LY: I think that is where it all started for me. There were stories going around everyday to the point where I actually was afraid walking around the place--plus all the strange noises that just echoed about didnít help matters.
The story of the headless nun is based on an accident. One of the nuns somehow got caught in one of the elevators and was decapitated. She was said to roam the dungeons of the school moaning for her lost head.
DT: Tell us a little about the main character from DELIVERED TO ETERNITY.
LY:Alesta is a HOT vamp--she never chose her destiny though and keeps it a secret. She tries to remain as human as she can by leading a life as a nurse and running her manor bed and breakfast.
Ahhhhh! Vamps in Kilts! Run for the hills!
Through the misty moors and aching crags, she calls you!
In her manor, on the loch, youíll find her.
Take a leap, lay down to sleep, for you may never wake, your soul at stake.
A dark-haired beauty, with fangs so sharp, lips so red but a human heart.
Alesta! She dares you!
Alesta is a nurse with a secret. When babies start disappearing from her hospital, the police investigation implicates her. The police, however, are the least of her problems, as her past comes back alive. Such is the way with vampires.
Alexandria, Scotland has no idea whatís coming!
This tale is fast-paced, thrilling and delivers it all, with a bit of bite, fear, all wrapped up in Scottish humor.
