Twisted Bloodlines

Megan has never had what most would call a normal life.

Her childhood and teen years were spent on the run with her family, hiding from a horror so great it defines their world. Friends and homes are traded at a moment’s notice to escape from their worst nightmares.

Years pass, and her mother settles down with her new step-father, a kind man who does his best to protect them.

What’s The Scariest Thing That Has Happened To Me?

I would have to say learning to drive, and my first car. I had tried to learn to drive for many years, but found it quite scary. I would drive really slow, annoying the hell out of other drivers. Narrow streets with cars parked on both sides were the worst. I even closed my eyes once while driving down one of them, I gave the instructor a small heart-attack when I did, but I was terrified of hitting one of the cars, so my instinct was to close my eyes. *grin* I also tried to go around the roundabout the wrong way once. Obviously this didn’t impress my instructor much either.

I eventually did pass, and got my first car shortly after. It was a really old car, 1994 was the year it was made, but it was a good runner. After a while, the car started freaking me out. The gas pedal would go down on its own without me pressing on it, which seriously freaked me out. I would go to open it in the morning, but it would remain locked even when using the key. The floor where the back seats were would get wet enough to leave a small puddle, on several occasions, with no apparent reason for it. Even the garage had no idea where it was coming from. The ultimate scary moment I experienced was when I pulled into a car park, and at the time I had my two sons with me. After parking the car and switching the engine off, all the locks went down, trapping us inside. It was like something out of a horror film, my boys were freaking out—and I joined them. I eventually started up the car again, and the locks released. Let’s just say we couldn’t get out of the car fast enough! We dubbed the car Herbie, since it was in fact a Volkswagon. *smile*



More About The Author

Linda
Jackson

I was born and raised in London, which is where I still live now with my husband and children. As a child I always had my nose stuck in a book. I started out reading mysteries such as Nancy Drew and then soon moving onto Agatha Christie. I then found a love of the horror genre, Richard Laymon being my favourite author among a few others. When a friend introduced me to the paranormal romance/fantasy genre I soon became hooked, building myself a very impressive to read pile and a long list of favourite authors. I would say both of these genres have influenced in the way I write and combining them is where I came up with the idea for my book.
