This month Three by Five highlighted author Joleene Naylor. A indie author with five novels out in the world and a sixth on the way. Curious about her Amaranthine seriese? Check out these mini prologues, free at Ebook retailers. These nine flash fiction stories complement and supplement the fifth novel, Heart of the Raven. I recently finished all five novels and have to say, while vampires are not my usual choice, I ran through those books like a caged vampire finally loose and finding prey. Want to read a sample of book number five, Heart of the Raven – go here. Finally, if you’re like me and want a whole series at your finger tips, I recommend the Amaranthine Special editions – Books one – four in two volumes that will get you ready for book number five.
Thanks Joleene, for spending some time with Three by Five!
Joleene Naylor grew up in southwest Iowa surrounded by soybeans, corn and very little entertainment – so she made her own. She has been writing and drawing since she was a small child, with a particular leaning towards fantasy, horror and paranormal. It is this love of all that goes bump in the night that led her to write the Amaranthine series.
In her spare time she is a freelance artist, book cover designer and photographer. Her current projects include the sixth novel in the Amaranthine series, and The Terrible Turtle Conspiracy, a web manga collaboration with writer Jonathan Harvey. Joleene maintains blogs full of odd ramblings and hopes to win the lottery. Until she does, she and her husband live near Bolivar Missouri with their miniature zoo. However, unless she starts buying tickets she may never win anything.
And now, the final question:
VAH – What are three random non writing related facts about you?
JN – I’m a music addict, and I own it in nearly every format including record, cassettes, cds, mp3s. No eight tracks, though. I’m not quite old enough for those.
I collect rocks. Not special, amazing rocks, but just everyday rocks that catch my eye. My house is full of them.
I tend to have more in common with people older than me rather than my old peer group. I blame it on the way I was raised.
