Deborah Hainley Bonnar tells stories that interest her in her own unique voice, which explains why "Sarah's Story" is as difficult to comfortably place in one genre as her writing style is to describe. The 3 novels ~ "Maiden", "Mother", and "Wise Woman" ~ contain horror, fantasy, history, romance, seduction, magic, sensuality, and humor.
The main characters of "Sarah's Story" are a courageous, strong, intelligent woman gifted with psychic abilities and a 2,055 year old vampire very different from those previously depicted in literature. As she evolves, Sarah becomes an accomplished practitioner of magic. Silvanus is both ruthless and terrifying, as a vampire should be, but with Sarah he is also very tender and romantic. Regardless of his company, Silvanus is never in search of redemption or apologetic about his actions.
Deborah Hainley Bonnar's sales and reviews (on both the U.K. and U.S. sites) in the short time since publishing with Amazon have been extremely impressive for a first-time author. A good indication that word of mouth is going to explode about her ~ and quickly ~ is in the many 5-star reviews her books have already attracted. The constant thread running through these reviews is how believable the characters are, how delightfully surprising are the twists in the plot, and how reluctant readers are to put the books down.
Born and educated in Pennsylvania, the writer recently returned to her hometown after a thirty year absence. After leaving university, she lived in America's southwest for three years, Belfast (Northern Ireland) for five years, Galway City (Republic of Ireland) for a year, and London, England for 21 years.
Deborah Bonnar created and remains an administrator of the private Facebook group "Masters & Mistresses of Seduction", a place where talented writers gather to share work with one another. She writes a blog, "Overactive Imagination", which may be accessed on the right side of Amazon's Deborah Hainley Bonnar page. And she maintains an author's page on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Deborah-Hainley-Bonnar/254794427920729
