Book Description:

Nicole Baker is a quiet girl - the type of person who is seldom noticed by anyone. That is until one day she discovers she has the unique ability to see images move on photographs. At first, she uses her ability to entertain friends at parties and work. Then senior detective Paul Hammond learns of her ability and enlists her help in a case of unsolved murders that he has not been able to make any headway on.
Carl Kadner, a rookie reporter with the local paper is investigating the murders as well. And he learns what it takes to be the kind of reporter he wants to be when he puts himself in danger for the sake of the story. It is only when Carl, Nicole and Detective Hammond pool their resources that things start making sense.

Paul is a rough-around-the-edges older detective that may take a moment for you to like..I wasn't his biggest fan in the beginning but, I did come around. Nicole is likable too..with an odd and intriguing gift. For me at least, this wasn't a typical murder/thriller. But, that's what made it so different and fun! This story is told from three different perspectives which I really enjoyed. The descriptions of the murder scenes were a little gruesome so, beware of that...however, the medical descriptions were also fascinating! Also, as you read you realize there is a double mystery...not only are they trying to figure out who the murderer is but...the why.
The writing was really good. Detailed, fluid, and captivating! The author clearly has talent in storytelling and writing. I look forward to reading more from this author!

What is your next project?

At present, I’m writing a zombie novel without ever mentioning the word, “zombies”. It’s more of a human or inhuman interest story.

What advice would you give budding writers?

I get asked this question all the time, that and, “How do find time to write?”. The answer is painfully simple, find a topic, write the first paragraph and then a second and third. If the story is good, keep writing. Have family and friends give you an honest opinion and learn to take constructive criticism. As far as finding the time, I have a full-time job, run a few companies on the side, other business interests and still find time to write. If you want to write and have the desire, you will find the time.

What genre do you like to write and why?

I have five novels out: three mystery, one horror and one thriller. My current novel I’m writing is horror.  I’ve also got an adult-themed children’s book and fantasy on the go. I want to experiment with different genres to find my comfort zone. Some books seem to write themselves. Other novels have been more challenging. Overall, thriller and horror are my favourites.

Where do you write?

I write everywhere. I carry a Surface with me, and whenever I get the urge, I’ll drop a few hundred words. I’ve written in planes, on the beach, in the passenger seat while my wife drives, the den, in front of the television, at dinner, I have no specific place. My best day was over 5,000 words. It just kept flowing. “Highway 7” only took a few months to write. There was so much in my head; I couldn’t stop writing.
