Interview: Author, Shannon Baker with Giveaway!

Today, we are excited to have debut novelist, Shannon Baker here to discuss her mystery/thriller, Ashes of the Red Heifer. She is also generously offering one copy of the book as a giveaway to one of our readers!

As soon as I heard this book was coming out I contacted the author and said “I need to read this book and would love the opportunity to review it!” A few months later I had the book in my hand and although I am only about halfway through it I can honestly say that it was worth the wait. Within the first few pages the action and mystery start and so far haven’t stopped – the pacing is ideal for the content. Larissa (The Crazy Book Lover) and I will be doing a duel-review/discussion of Ashes of the Red Heifer …

BLI: Graffiti is not a common topic seen in books, where did the idea for this book come from?

Mara: When I wrote Tagged in 2007, I had just discovered the work of Banksy, a British graffiti artist. I highly recommend checking out his web site as well as his book, Wall and Piece.

BLI: I love the colorful cover! It shows graffiti with 2 ‘normal’ kids just hanging out yet when I think of graffiti, rough looking kids come to mind. What does this tell us about the book?

Mara: Thanks! I love the colors, too, and I hope the cover conveys that the main characters are very average kids.

BLI: Gorilla’s are found spray painted around …

“How Home-Schooling Inspired My Writing”

(photo credit: Owen Benson)

My schooling was quite unconventional compared to my friends. While my friends rode off to first grade in a yellow school bus, I went to a Montessori school where they didn’t know what grades (neither years nor marks) meant. In high school when kids stayed up late to study for tests, I was up all night with a goat in labor. In many ways I envied the “normal” childhood of others and wanted very much to be a part of it. Or at least the idealized part of …
