Excerpt:
He took a pack of cigarettes from his coat pocket and shook one free with his right hand. “Smoke?” he offered.
                Bonnie shook her head.
                He lipped the cigarette and fumbled to find his lighter, patting himself until he found it in his pants pocket. With one hand on the steering wheel Dave groped at the lid with the other. Bonnie reached over and took it from him.
                “Let me,” she said.
                She cocked open the lid and flicked the lighter with her thumb until it ignited. Dave gently wrapped his fingers around her hand, guiding the flame to his cigarette. Bonnie felt his warm fingers against hers as they paused there long after the cigarette was lit. He took hold of the lighter and snapped the lid shut against the steering wheel. “Thanks.”
                A wreath of smoke circled his head, illuminated by the gray-green light of the dashboard. “How about you?” he asked. “Married?”




Author Vickie Hall

Vickie is a native of Utah, but growing up, lived in the states of Colorado, Idaho, Montana, and Nebraska. When she's not writing, she's composing music, or shopping with her sister. She loves animals of all kinds and camping with her family. Her favorite pastime is watching old movies on TCM, and unashamedly has a crush on Cary Grant.




Interview: 
Ashna: Who is your Favotie villain?
Vickie Hall: Hannibal Lecter- "I do wish I could chat longer, but... I'm having an old friend for dinner."

A: What do you love most about writing?
VH: I love creating characters, deciding their backstory and what makes them tick. I try to make them a complete person with a history so I know how they'll react in the situations I place them in. They become real to me, and I have to admit there's been more than one time after completing a book, that I've actually missed a character and was sorry the story had ended!

A: Your book is a movie! Who is in your dream cast?
VH: Bonnie Cooper would have to be played by Charlize Theron and Glen Taggart would be Hugh Jackman. Yum!

A: What character from your book would you most like to be sutck in an elevator with?
VH: Definately Glen Taggart. He has dimples and whiskey brown eyes, a sense of humor and likes cats. 

A: Describe your ideal writing space.
VH: I'm probably a little different tham most writers. I hat sitting at a desk, so I use a laptop while sitting in my comfy recliner! All I need is a glass of Coke Zero, my  feet up, and I'm good to go. 

A: Name the five biggest distractions from your writting.
VH: A beautiful day with the perfect temperature, a great old movie on TCM, the need to eat, my day job, and a ringing phone.
