Meet A Writer Monday Presents...

...Denise Fleischer

1. Tell me about your book Deadly Reservations and where you got your inspiration for it?

The best way to describe what the book is about is from the book jacket. My inspiration is simply my fascination with good vs. evil and an interest in what “really” is out there.

When a fallen angel is determined to claim Earth as his own realm, Archangel Michael has to stop him before he achieves his goal. Unable to venture to the planet caught in global warming and endless crimes, he sends his daughter, Zoe, to become a psychic detective and a hunter of fallen angels.

By day, Zoe is a lifestyle editor in a small town known as Mt. Lisle, Illinois. At night, you’ll find her deep into her agency’s investigations. If her life isn’t difficult enough with a computer filled with missing people cases, in walks Special Agent Brian Novelli informing her that she’s been recruited by the F.B.I. to hunt down a man responsible for buying small town America and murdering anyone that gets in the path of his goals. All the F.B.I. has is a name: Mathias and an artificial intelligence to assist in tracking him down.

This paranormal thriller reads like a behind-the-scenes psychic investigation in tracking Mathias and what it’s like for Zoe to work on other cases along the way. It explores telepathy, astral and physical portation, visions, angels, the use of AI’s and remote viewing.

2. While you were writing, did you ever feel as if you were one of the characters? 

I believe we are all the characters in our novels. While I comfortably feel I know everything about Zoe Montgomery, I totally love being both the sarcastic F.B.I. agent Brian Novelli and the A.I. (artificial intelligence) Charles.

3. Is there a message in your novels you want the readers to grasp?

I’ve learned a few interesting things about the paranormal having spoken to people both on Second Life virtual world and after interviewing people in real life. One thing I’ve learned is life isn’t a game. We need to take responsibility for our thoughts and actions. I do believe not only will we be judged later for them, but karma is real. Having interviewed soldiers who were on the battlefront, I now believe in angels. Having learned about paranormal presences witnessed by more and more people, I’m curious to know why. I now believe in spiritual awakening, dream intruders and that death isn’t the end.

4. What question would you most like someone to ask you? And what would be your answer?

Is there good and evil? Yes.

5. What advice would you give to someone just starting out?

Write because the ability is within you. Write the story you want to read, but write it according to the guidelines of a small press publisher so you aren’t wasting years of your life.

6. How did you chose your genre?

I think it chose me. I loved Time Tunnel and Dark Shadows. But it was a Literature of the Supernatural class in college that got me thinking.

7. Is anything in your book based on real life experiences or is it all imagination?

I’ve been on ghost tours, cemetery walks and in a haunted house. Nothing ever happened until eight years ago. I now see life in a different light. It’s as if I’ve awoken. It’s not like I can explain my experiences to anyone. No one would believe me.

8. Why did you feel you had to tell this story?

 I think so “out of the box” that it gives a different twist to other books written today. I always want to present something very original and unique.

9. What sort of environment do you write in? (e.g. quiet room, a cupboard with headphones on, in a death match with the cat for control of the keyboard)

 I write in the dark, while listening to movie soundtracks. On the weekends I write while in Second Life in Inspire Space Park or Tempura.

10. What was the point you realised that being an author was no longer a dream but a reality?

When I held my first novel, “The Guardian.” But I’ve been writing articles far longer, nearly 30 years.

My book is available in hardcover, paperback and kindle on Amazon. Hope you’ll all check it out. Then let me know what you think by writing me at Netera@aol.com.
