Spilling the Beans with Lorraine Carey

Welcome, Lorraine! Grab a cappuccino and let’s chat. Unless you have another favorite drink (alcoholic or otherwise)?

 Earl Grey tea -  iced or hot!

I love my tea too! Fur or feathers, petwise?

Fur - love dogs and obsessed with wolves! Visited many wolf rescue camps and felt so connected to these beautiful creatures.

Very cool. Any pet peeves? One thing that really burns your biscuits? 

Yes, those people in the market with their trollies who stand in the aisles and refuse to move as if they own the store. I’ll do an “Excuse Me” two times, then just move on!

I think I've met a few, lol. What’s your guilty pleasure?

Buying shoes - yes even on this small island I know where to hunt some small shops to find cool stuff!

Favorite quote?

Humankind has not woven the web of life.

We are but one thread within it.

Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves.

All things are bound together.

All things connect.

~ Chief Seattle, 1854 ~

That's lovely. If you could have one superpower, what would it be?

To create world peace - for sure!

If you could live out any fantasy, what would you do?

*Okay this vision has been with me as long as I can remember-

I own a villa overlooking The Amalfi Coast in Capri. I am standing  on my  balcony in a long white flowing dress as the wind gently blows a cool breeze. I am just staring out at the amazing golden sunset and watching the boats sail over the turquoise waters.

* I must mention for my 60th birthday my husband surprised me with a trip to Italy. Yes, we are going to Capri!

So exciting! Hope you share pics. :) Beethoven, Beatles, Foo Fighters or Keith Urban (what type(s) of music makes you rock out)?

Enigma, Christian Rock, Enya, Celtic Women


Does music influence your writing? Do you have a music playlist for your book?

Yes, definitely- while I was writing, Jonathan’s Locket I listened to Christian Rock and lots of Enya because it is a very spiritual novel.

Which of your characters would you most/least want to hang out with, and why?

I would definitely want to hang out with Mallock, the ancient turtle as he would tell me the mysteries of the sea.

Love that! While creating your books, what was one of the most surprising things you learned?

To start promoting and making connections at least 6 months prior to the release of your book , as you need to set a presence and start a platform. 

Excellent advice. Where can readers find out more about you?

My website.

Please share a book blurb and/or excerpt.

Eva sat up in the kayak amidst a blackened sea. She wrapped a blanket around her as she shook with chills. She could see a thick grey fog plowing through the wreck site as it seemed to carry the screams along with it, as if all the lost souls who had lost their lives were trapped in the mist. I pray Brandon will survive this night, she thought. How could I have doubted him?

She watched as giant lightning rods struck down to the reef with rage. She knew she was witnessing some paranormal event. As she shined her light over to the reef where she last spotted Jason, she could find no sign of him.

Thanks for spilling the beans today, Lorraine!
