Have you been writing for a long time?
I wrote a lot in elementary school, but not so much after that until about ten years ago. I’ve been writing steadily for the last ten years.
What inspired you to start a writing career?
I really just started writing to escape reality—I didn’t think I’d ever be a published author or even pursue getting published. But, the writing bug infected me and I decided to be brave and let other people read what I was writing. Other writers are who have inspired me, writing groups and conferences get the fire burning.
Is this book a stand-alone, or part of a series?
SAVED is a stand-alone.
Why did you choose this genre?
I typically write urban fantasy, but my sisters don’t really like the fantasy genre—though they’ve read all of my books and are some of my biggest cheerleaders. They both love to read romance-type books, so I wrote SAVED for them. And… I really enjoyed writing it and will definitely be writing more of this genre.
Do you have any advice for aspiring authors?
Keep writing. Tell the stories that are trying to get out. Join a writing group so you can bounce your ideas off of like-minded and not-so-like-minded people. Always strive to improve your craft. And… have fun!
About the Book
Author: H.L. Anderson
Genre: Romantic Thriller
Theresa Kent is a wife, mom, and hardworking nurse living in rural Colorado. Life is good until her increasingly despondent, unemployed husband suddenly snaps—his vicious attack leaves Theresa fighting for her life as she tries to escape the insane version of the man she loves.
Ryan Tucker appears to have it all, except he’s been merely existing, not living, for the the last three years. His emotions get a much needed jump start when he rescues Theresa from the torment her life has become in just a matter of days. Ryan feels an instant and fierce desire to protect this stranger that fell into his life.
Hanging over their heads is the knowledge that Theresa’s husband is still out there, hunting for her.
Can two broken souls be repaired, or will the demons of the past and present come between the repressed love that grows between them?
Holli Anderson has a Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing—which has nothing to do with writing, except maybe by adding some pretty descriptive injury and vomit scenes to her books. She discovered her joy of writing during a very trying period in her life when escaping into make-believe saved her. She enjoys reading any book she gets her hands on, but has a particular love for anything fantasy.
Along with her husband, Steve, and their four sons, she lives in Grantsville, Utah—the same small town in which she grew up.
