The Author's Den - Destiny Calling

Joining me in The Author's Den on this beautiful summer day is Maureen L. Bonatch. As the sun shines through the windows of the den, Maureen and I are enjoying a glass of red wine and chatting about her book, Destiny Calling.

Maureen, tell us a little about yourself.
If I were to talk about myself I might say… Maureen Bonatch grew up in small town Pennsylvania and her love of the four seasons—hockey, biking, sweat pants and hibernation—keeps her there. While immersed in writing or reading paranormal romance and fantasy, she survives on caffeine, wine, music, and laughter. A feisty Shih Tzu keeps her in line.

What’s your guilty procrastination secret?
Hmmm…usually it’s wrestling to catch up on my never-ending email or organizing the mounds of sticky notes and paperwork on my desk–or else sometimes I lose way too much time scrolling Facebook. I also can’t resist a good movie, but I justify that it is research.

What does your writing space look like?
It took me years but I finally claimed the guest room as my office. I moved things around last year so I can look out the window while I write. I have my book covers framed and hanging on the wall and a couple shelves full of books.

What do you enjoy doing when you’re not writing?
My favorite thing to do is watch a good movie. Although I try to get in some walking or bicycle riding to counteract all that sitting.

What can we look forward to with your upcoming or next writing project?
Book #2 of The Enchantlings Series is with my editor now. Hopefully, I’ll have news of a release date this year and a cover soon for Not A Chance so you can all catch up with Hope’s adventures.

Where can we find you and your books online?
I spend most of my time on my website, or my author Facebook page, but I’ll share some of my social media sites, including my Amazon author page with all my books. 
Amazon Author Page:

Let's take a peek at, Destiny Calling.
Hope only wants to find out if her ability to infuse euphoria or despair with her touch makes her the devil's spawn, or his exterminator. But when the woman who raised her is murdered by something not human, she loses the only family she knew and discovers one she might wish she hadn’t. 

Drawn back to the home town she vowed never to return to, her ability is seen as an asset to everyone but Hope, and she doesn't know who to trust. Her family wants her to help them overcome an enemy oppressing the human population, while the man of her dreams is courting her for the Underworld. 

Time is running out, and Hope’s choice may be made for her, as she discovers she’s a pawn in a bigger game played by a merciless ruler who doesn't lose.
