Time Twist By Jeanie R. Davis-Official Book Tour and Giveaway: Special Author Interview!

Arianna Miller tosses her luggage and her hopes into her Subaru and sets out to prove her talent—by decorating a Victorian mansion thirty miles from nowhere. She needs a fresh start and a break from painful memories. However, she is soon haunted by reminders of her past and endangered by foreboding mysteries.

Christopher Flemming is determined to stop his father's crime spree, which began in nineteenth century London and now threatens present day Colorado. He must find and destroy the time-traveling machine that brought them forward in time. More importantly, he needs to save Arianna.
Because of Christopher's blurred focus, Arianna finds her attraction to him untenable. She wants to help him, but he refuses to reveal his connection to the mansion.

Everything changes when Arianna stumbles onto the time machine before Christopher does. Will her future end up in the past?

   Jeanie Davis is an Arizona transplant—twenty-four years and counting. She loves peach ice cream, shopping, a clean house…oh, and chocolate, of course. She has traveled extensively—from Fiji to Africa and Europe to Costa Rica—but prefers being at home creating new adventures on her computer.

     Her four daughters have left her nest empty, but they return often with grandchildren who bring real fun and adventure to her life. And thankfully, Jeanie's awesome husband, Rick, loves to join in on all her escapades.

      A good romance will always capture Jeanie's attention; add suspense or historical ties and she's totally hooked. She's the author of a time-traveling adventure, Time Twist—the first of a romantic/suspense series with a twist of paranormal; an historical fiction novel, As Ever Yours, based on the lives of her grandparents, and a children's Christmas book, I Don't Know Why I Did It.

     Jeanie is passionate about writing, and she always has a new story to delve into or an older one to revise. She began by writing poetry and music, which she still enjoys, but now novels have moved to the forefront of her avocational pursuits.
     When she's not spoiling her grandchildren, Jeanie spends her free time curled up with a good book or typing away on her most recent mystery, adventure or romance.

Author Interview
Author: Jeanie R. Davis
Book: Time Twist

When did you start writing, and was there a specific event or person who influenced you to become an author?  
I have written poetry and music for as long as I can remember, but I began writing novels in 2014. Shock! I’ve always loved to read, but never imagined myself as an author. I’ve had MS for 34 years and am proof that God gives us all a purpose in life.

How many books do you have out, and do you have a favorite? 
 I currently have three published books: As Ever Yours (Historical Fiction), I Don’t Know Why I Did It (Children’s Christmas book) and Time Twist (Romantic Suspense w/time travel). I always say the one I’m working on is my favorite 😊

How do you come up with character names?  
That’s a tough one. I usually start with a few that I like, then ask my daughters—who are much more hip (and don’t use words such as “hip”) than I am—for their opinions.

Do you have a favorite author? 
 I love historical fiction and romance and have several favorite authors. Some are: Sarah Eden, Jennifer Moore, Carla Kelly, Donna Hatch and Jennifer Griffith.

What is some of your favorite or memorable books that you’ve read? 
 Longing for Home/Hope Springs series by Sarah Eden, Legally in Love series by Jennifer Griffith, and… the Harry Potter series. I guess I’m a sucker for a good series.

What is one piece of advice you could give to a new author that you wish someone had passed to you?  
Just because you can read, doesn’t mean you can write. Learn the craft by taking classes and working in critique groups, then never give up.

Do you have any pets?  
Not anymore. Moki, my favorite dog, died last year. He was a Yorkshire Terrier and a very sweet pet.

What do you do in your spare time when you’re not writing? 
 I spend time with my family. And my husband and I do a fair bit of traveling, as well.

What is the best vacation you ever went on?  
Family vacation to Fiji, or vacation with my husband to Ireland—both were my favorites but were so different from each other.

If you could live anywhere else besides your current location, where would it be?  
I can’t think of anywhere else I’d rather live. We lived in New York for eight months last year, and I couldn’t wait to move home. My heart is where my kids and grandkids are (and nearly all of them live in Arizona). I have one daughter and her family living in Utah. If I had to move, I’d choose to live near them.

Are you currently working on a project, and if so, can you tell us anything about it?  
Yes! I’m currently polishing the sequel to Time Twist, which doesn’t end on a cliffhanger, but has more story to it. The name of the book is Time Trap. In this book the characters spend a lot of time in 19th century London, and in the end, Christopher and Arianna finally find their very happily ever after.

If you weren’t an author, what other profession would you be in? 
 I went to school to be an interior decorator. But with MS, that would be difficult. I’m happy I can write about Arianna, who is a decorator 😊
