Spotlight: Sudden Hope by Mira Garland


When your nightmares become reality and you can’t wake up, what do you do?
Celeste is a normal teenage girl.
After the loss of her father, her life seems to be in constant turmoil.
She realizes her worst nightmares are occurring while she's still awake.
Just as it looks like her life is on the right path, things go terribly wrong and leave her in a spiraling whirlwind of emotion.
Trying to find her father’s killer and dealing with an ex that will do anything to get revenge, she feels like she is falling.
The only thing that is holding her together is her support system, her friends and Danny.
Celeste loves Danny more than life itself, although now just feels as if it's not the time to be with him. He is the answer to her dreams. He is her one true love and most importantly her sudden hope.
Only life isn't fair and doesn't play by the rules.

Author bio: 

I was born in Jackson, MI but now live on Long Island in NY. I have four beautiful daughters whom I live and breathe for. I began writing as a hobby, but realized very quickly that it was an outlet to explore my deepest dreams. I love to read and have a problem with honesty when I write reviews, although I do not have a problem if you tell me I'm wrong about it. My debut novel is “Sudden Hope” and will be released in April of 2013.

Welcome to my reality and I hope all your dreams come true.

Author Interview:

What made you want to be a writer?

I really always enjoyed writing and one day just decided to start the adventure.

How did you come up with the idea for this book? 

A talk with my daughter actually. She and I are very close and I was having a conversation with her and she said “Wow mom that would make a great book.” Sudden Hope was born.

Who is your favorite character?  Why?

Jenny. She is everything a best friend should be. I think everyone should have a Jenny in there life.

Were there any aspects of this book that were difficult for you to write?  Why? 

Yes. There were many parts that I actually cried while writing. Memories are not always a good thing.

Do you have any tips for aspiring writers? 

Don’t stop. EVER. Most importantly write for yourself. Don’t let anyone tell you you can’t do it or that your not good enough. If someone does finish your work and prove them wrong.

What are some of your future projects? 

Book two will be out at some point. Lea and Anthony’s Story. Also Jenny will get her story too. I have something else outside of the YA world I have been messing around with but we will have to see how that goes...
