Haven Waiting by Tifani Clark

I am pleased to be involved with this blog tour for Haven Waiting. I am eagerly waiting to read the book as I really enjoyed the first book in the series Shadow of a Life. I fell in love with the characters and can't wait to read what they do next.

About Haven Waiting: Fifteen-year-old Jamie Peters is a Soul Saver. She helps ghosts finish their business and move on. When a mysterious map comes into her possession, she knows a new adventure is waiting. With the help of her friends, Peter and Camille, she follows the map. Her friends hope to find treasure, but Jamie suspects there is more to the map than riches. She never imagined the map would lead her to Haven—and a book of spells.

Haven Mills was accused of practicing witchcraft during the Salem Witch Trials. Unlike the other women hung during the trials, Haven wasn’t as innocent as she claimed to be. In one moment of weakness and desperation, she did something sinister—something that has been bringing evil to the world for centuries.

Jamie promises to help Haven, but the reality of what that promise entails comes back to haunt her as she fights not only for Haven’s soul, but for her own as well.  

About the Author:I have a special connection with Tifani Clark. Her husband is my husbands nephew. So I guess that makes her my niece by marriage though she feels more like a friend and fellow writer. We also share the same publisher which is a crazy coincidence too. Seems we write the same type of books, entertaining but still clean and wholesome.
Anyway, I have enjoyed getting to know her a little better as I hope you will. Following are a few questions that she answered for me.

Q: When did you first decide to become a writer and what fuels your passion?
A: I think I've always wanted to be a writer. I had quite the imagination growing up and I always had a "story" to tell. I never know what's going to fuel my passion or ideas. Sometimes the strangest things will trigger plot ideas and even entire stories. When that happens, I can't wait to get back to writing.

Q: How did you come up with the idea for the Soul Saver series?
A: I love history and I love mysteries, but sometimes it's easier to read books set in our own time period. The Soul Saver series was my way of combining those elements. By having the characters from real historical events come back as ghosts, their stories can be told.

Q: How many books do you anticipate being in this series?
A: That's a good question...and one I can't really answer. Right now, there are three books written (or almost finished), but I have ideas for many more. When I started this series, I didn't want it to be something that necessarily had a beginning and an end, and I wanted to write the books in a way that the reader could read the second without having read the first, etc.

Q: Are there any traits you have given your characters that are actually your own?
A: I don't think anyone's ever asked this question in quite that way. In the Soul Saver series, I think there are bits of me in both the main character Jamie and her friend Camille--although I didn't intentionally put those traits there. I love to read and enjoy learning, like Jamie, but I'm far more outgoing and talkative than she is...like Camille.
