Interview with Amber Harrison

Tell us about yourself, please.
Hi everyone,
My name is Amber Harrison. I'm the Winston family keeper.
Right, and what's that you're probably asking?
It means that I'm guided by my family ancestors which are now my spiritual guides. They assigned me task that will help me grow and will help different members of my family. I'm very happy in my job, most of the time because I'm surrounded by very supportive people.
But this time, the family spirits have assigned me one heck of a task. I have to get my grandmother's ghost to let go and pass over into heaven.
Do you know how hard that is?
Especially with a ghost riddled with guilt.
Add in, I'm in love with an incredible guy who has no idea what I'm going through. Then you'll wonder why I just don't pack up my bags, head back to college, and sunny California. Oh, yeah, my parents, they want to rule my life.
Oh, but it's fun being me...not.
What is it that you want, but cannot have? Authors call this the conflict of the story.
To let go of the guilt I have of accidentally killing my grandfather. I loved him so much, then he died and left me all alone.
What's your internal limitation? Meaning, what is it about you that makes it so you cannot do what it is you need to do during this story?
I have to let go of the one man, I truly love to find the confidence to convince my grandmother to let go of her life as a ghost.
What inner doubt causes you the most difficulty?
Failing the family that loves me.
Tell us about your significant other, that person who makes living worthwhile.
Carter Miller is everything a girl could want tall, dark, and handsome with the most incredible bedroom-brown eyes. He can look at you and you want to melt. He works in construction and is remodeling the kitchen in Winston Manor. His only problem is he doesn't understand my connection to the spiritual world.
What would that person say about you?
He believes I'm beautiful. Even if I've been told by my mother, I could use to lose a few pounds. With blonde hair and blue eyes, I'm attractive and try to be a nice person. Though, his sister calls me a bimbo because I consume a great deal of her brother's time. Yeah, I can't help if he likes being with me.
What is your family like?
With a family of spirits surround me, I have more characters around me than I can shake a stick at (old says are repeated regularly at my house.) They are supportive as well as challenging.
My best friend, Mattie Winston Miller is the best and helps me with my job. She's the old family keeper and understands the challenges I face.
As for my parents, they are in California. We don't exactly get along, and I'm much happier living miles and miles away from them.
Are you happy with the way your story ended? Why or why not?
Yes, I met the task assigned to me by Jonathan, the head of the family spirits and I am committed to living the rest of my life with the man I love.
Granted, I still have challenges to face but I know I can meet them with the help of the family spirits and my friends.

Author Bio

Growing up, I didn't know what I wanted to be. Once when someone asked me about my dream job, I said I wanted to be a pretender.
That's why writing is the perfect job for me, because it allows me the flexablity to become a new person in every book. In truth, I went through a number of different jobs, before I decided to be a writer. I enjoy incorporating the heartaches, headaches and fun of being a mother into my books.
Currently, I'm working on a series about four executive wives. They combine elements of women fiction with the passion of romance. The first three books are available, Marketing Exec's Widow, IT Exec's Baby, and CFO's Affair. The last book CEO Widow's Decision will be out by the end of 2014.
Also, I have two books out in my Family Tree series...Summer's Growth and Fallen Leaves. (Paranormal Romantic Suspense)
When not writing, I enjoy spending time with my family and traveling around the country. I haven't hit every state yet, but hoping to some day.

  1. Thank you Kayelle, for hosting me today. I really enjoyed getting into the mind of my character. She is a complex character. Makes me wondered how I'd handle a family of spiritual guides. Have a great weekend.

    1. This is one of the prettiest book covers I've ever seen. I love the colors! And the character seems like a real treat. :)
