Please help me welcome author Allison Cosgrove to today’s blog. Allison’s new book, Sacrifice of Innocence, was just released about a week ago, and it’s making its way up Amazon’s charts. Recent reviews indicate that this tale of mystery and suspense will keep you on the edge of your seat. You can (and should!) purchase the book on Amazon or Smashwords today!
Let’s learn a little more about this amazing author:
Allison Cosgrove was born and raised in a suburb of Toronto, Ontario. A married mother of three daughters, she works in retail by day and creates her own worlds by night. She enjoys spending time with her husband and daughters hiking in the woods or sitting by the fire reading a good book. She has had the love of reading and writing detective mysteries from the age of twelve but it has only been since the birth of her youngest that she has gotten serious about crafting some of her own works for others to enjoy. She credits her family and friends with being the driving force that has given her the strength to breathe life into her books.
Now tell us something about you that your bio doesn’t include. Feel free to make us laugh!
I AM CLINICALLY INSANE. Seriously. I make my crazy world look simple but let me tell you between raising three kids, a handful of novel characters, a hubby, three cats, a pile of paperwork from the stores I manage and all the trimmings that come with a family and social obligations I have little time to breath!
Tell us about some of the unique elements in your books.
I take bits of reality and stuff my books with them. It makes you wonder if these things no doubt exist. I enjoy giving people the creeps.
Who is (or has been) your favorite character to write and why?
Stan. He’s your average guy who has his flaws like everyone else. I enjoy working with him because everyone loves the underdog and he reminds me of myself as there was a time when many people doubted my capabilities just as they doubt his.
What is something you think people should know about your books before they start reading?
When you have time to read, who are some of the authors whose books you have to have on-hand?
Stephen King, James Patterson, Nora Roberts (JD Robb) and Kathy Reich.
What are you reading right now?
I have a few on the go at the moment. Dying to Forget by Trish Marie Dawson, 11/22/63 by Stephen King and 50 Shades of Grey by EL James.
What’s the best compliment you’ve ever received regarding your writing/books?
I think the best thing someone has ever said to me would have to be that they were unable to stop reading the book until they got to the end. As a reader as well as an author I know how amazing a book has to be to keep me fixated for that amount of time so to have someone say that they were engrossed that much is a true compliment!
Is there anything you’d like to say to your readers?
I sincerely hope that you enjoy reading these books as much as I enjoyed writing them!
