Interview & Giveaway: Debra Chapoton

     Debra Chapoton is an international author of young adult novels including EDGE OF ESCAPE (SOMMERFALLE in German), THE GUARDIAN’S DIARY, SHELTERED, and A SOUL’S KISS. She is an avid game player, active in her church, and lives in a full log home she designed herself and built with her husband.

Favorite reads?
     I love suspense that could really happen. Zombies and ghosts don’t scare me, but a stranger with a droopy eye and his hand jigging my front door knob will give my shivers shivers.

Inspirations for the book?
     A Soul’s Kiss was inspired by a book I read told from the point of view of a woman in a coma. I took the idea to a different level, allowing my character to interact with others on a spirit plane.

Did you know you wanted to be an author when you were little?
     I didn’t know writing was in my future though there were plenty of clues: a sci-fi story I still have from fourth grade, a folder of angst-filled poetry, and several diaries that chronicled my life from seventh grade until I married.

Any Pet Peeves?
     I am frequently annoyed by the misuse of apostrophes.

Chocolate or Peanut Butter?

The weirdest thing you've ever done?
     I had to ask my husband to help me with this one because I tend to block out embarrassing moments. His first two choices were unsharable so the third weirdest thing I’ve ever done was to run after a pair of ducks while flapping my arms wildly. I was only trying to scare them out of mating in our swimming pool.

Is there a soundtrack to the book/Favorite music?
     Yes, and you can hear it in the trailer. Listen here:

Do you need anything to write?
     I only need quiet and a bit of inspiration. I get plenty of both living in the middle of the woods.

How long do you write on any average day?
     How long I write varies day to day, but I try to produce a thousand words, more or less.

Give us the number one reason to read your book.
     If you want to read a book that satisfies your need to escape, experience a different reality, make you feel like you’re seventeen, and fall in love then A Soul’s Kiss is for you. Also, I’ll give you chocolate.
