Finding My Reason

Across the Way

Interview with Camille Taylor

“Following the rules has its advantages, but breaking them may just save her life.”

A new killer has descended on Harbour Bay, and he’s already killed five women…

Bestselling author Megan Bailey is devastated when her young cousin Stacey goes missing. She’s been watching the news and knows what this might mean. Stacey could be the newest victim of Harbour Bay’s newest serial killer. Megan is determined to do something, and enlists the help of her friend, the superintendent of police, Amelia Donovan.

Amelia has her best detective on the case…Dean Matthews.

Dean doesn’t believe in love. It makes men weak and vulnerable, and as a retired soldier, he’s experienced enough heartache to last several lifetimes. He also has difficulty dealing with emotional women. So when he shows up to interview Megan at the request of his boss, he isn’t exactly looking forward to it. Except Megan isn’t what he expected.
Megan is intelligent, witty, and not to mention, beautiful. Dean tries to maintain a professional distance, but with a killer on the loose, he breaks all his rules and gets involved. He offers Megan comfort and promises he might not be able to keep.

The body count continues to rise and Dean’s leads are empty as ever…

When Megan disappears too, Dean knows his time to solve this case is up. He must unravel the twisted web of clues the killer has left behind or risk the one woman who might finally teach him to love again.

Interview with Camille

1.     What has been the biggest challenge in your writing career? 

     I think my biggest challenge would be deleting my favourite scenes from my books for various reasons. They have to go, of course but it’s hard to let go.

2.     Give us an anecdote about where you’ve found inspiration for your books. 

     Thankfully, I see the potential for a story pretty much anywhere. Some I don’t even remember how they came to be, others are clear. No Law, the third book in my Law Series wasn’t planned, however I fell hard for Dmitry and felt he needed his own story and HEA.

3.     Tell us about your next work in progress. 
     I have a few projects underway but I’m mainly focused on book 5 of the Harbour Bay Series. I absolutely love the two main characters and can’t wait to share them. The whole gang is back and another killer is on a rampage.
4.     What is the sharpest part of the learning curve concerning self-publishing? 
      Marketing! By no means is writing and editing a book not a challenge or even publishing said book but I personally feel marketing and getting my books in front of readers who’ll love them my biggest hurdle. One I haven’t quite jumped yet. It’s still a work in progress but I feel one day I’ll eventually get there.

5.      When you’re writing two different series, how do you keep them separate in your mind? 

      I think it helps that they’re slightly different. My Harbour Bay Series is edgier and a little more violent than the other series I’m currently working on. I know the characters and their stories. I guess it’s like having two separate groups of friends. 

6.     Readers are always curious. Your bios says you spend time decorating cakes – do you go all out, say with carving, etc.?  Show us some pictures. 
     I mainly just muck around with fondant figurines. It’s just like playing with Play-doh. They can take a while, but the look on my nephew’s face is worth it. Each year his demands are becoming a bit more complicated but I’m rising to the challenge. Here are some of the Avengers I recently made for his upcoming birthday. Last year he wanted the Batmobile along with Batman, Robin and the Joker. The year before, Octonauts. I do cheat sometimes and use markers to draw the really intricate stuff.
