Carmen DeSousa- Guest Author!

Carmen DeSousa
Entangled Dreams- New Release in September 9, 2012

While Carmen DeSousa does not write "Christian" books, she does share her characters' Christian beliefs. Her characters are real people who come with real flaws; no perfect people allowed.
She characterizes her stories as modern-day fairytales, as they are overflowing with romance, mystery, suspense, and of course, tragedy. After all, what would a fairytale be without a tragic event setting the stage? All of her novels are sensual, but not erotic, gripping but not graphic and will hopefully make you cry, laugh, love, and hope.
Both of her published novels, She Belongs to Me and Land of the Noonday Sun, have reached bestseller status right alongside Nicholas Sparks, J.D. Robb, and other great authors. Her third novel, Entangled Dreams, releases September 2012.

Follow the jump for more about Carmen!!!

Carmen is a Florida native author of Romance-Suspense novels. A life-long writer, she was destined to publish. Alas, her destiny was fulfilled in 2010 when she indeed published her first novel. Let's see what she has to say about her publishing journey...

What is your favorite part about being a writer?
I love being able to create characters that reach into a reader’s soul, making them feel as if they are living and breathing individuals.  
What do you hope readers take with them after reading one of your stories?
Above all, love and hope. My stories are about overcoming adversity and finding a way to live again.
How do your family and/or friends feel about your book or writing venture in general?
Shocked the heck out of the ones I told. I kept it a secret for two years until I decided to publish. Yep, even my husband didn’t know.
When not writing, how do you relax?
Is this a rhetorical question? Read, of course.
Are there any future projects or upcoming releases?
I have two follow up novels my readers might be interested in.

Split Decisions is the follow up to She Belongs to Me
When Noonday Ends is the follow up to Land of the Noonday Sun
Love Like Crazy is my first young adult, which I believe adult readers will still enjoy.

A very special release is out in print tomorrow, September 9, 2012.  
Entangled Dreams:
When Alexandra Nicole was eight, she thought she was a princess in a fairytale. But after a tragic accident shatters her magical life, she finds herself in a cold and heartless reality.

As an adult, she once again faces harsh truths and decides to take control of her destiny. Unfortunately, choices have a way of entangling her dreams and pushing her down a dark and dismal path.

Alexandra must trust her instincts to escape danger, but be able to surrender all to find her happily ever after. Knowing how to decipher the difference, will be her toughest challenge.
