Chaos Blog Tour: Author Interview with Lanie Bross

We're excited to welcome Lanie Bross to Reading Lark today. She's here to dish on Chaos, her latest release.

Andrea @ Reading Lark: Why do you think Greek Mythology captivates readers? 

Lanie: I think that having otherworldly explanations for ordinary things helps us hold onto that bit of childhood magic we seem to lose when we grow up.

Andrea @ Reading Lark: If you could meet one of the Greek Gods or Goddesses, which one would it be? 

Lanie: I am partial to Persephone. As Goddess of the Underworld, you know she is kick ass! ;P

Andrea @ Reading Lark: Which of the characters in the novel is most like you? 

Lanie: Probably Jasmine. She thinks for herself and is strong willed and does what she wants, but she cares very deeply for the people in her life.

Andrea @ Reading Lark: Where do you find inspiration for your settings?

Lanie: A lot of the worlds in FATES and CHAOS came from Google image searches. Places like deserts or images from space helped me to really picture where I was taking my characters.

Andrea @ Reading Lark: It's a tradition to ask - What is your favorite bird? 

Lanie: Well right now there is a huge Red Tailed Hawk that lives in our trees and it is GORGEOUS, so I’ll go with that for now!!

About the Novel

Can they change their destiny?

They kissed only once—and it was electric, like the air before a storm. But Corinthe and Luc broke the rules of the universe, and learned too late that their love would have consequences. In the dizzying aftermath, Luc refuses to accept his destiny—not if it means a life without Corinthe. As a fire rages through the Crossroads that connect worlds, Luc must find a way to turn back time and save Corinthe once and for all.

Meanwhile, Luc's 15-year-old sister Jasmine starts to realize things are not as they seem when time begins stuttering, sending her everyday life in San Francisco spinning into chaos. She’s thrown into the path of Ford, a troubled soul with a secret past, who helps her unravel the mysterious threads that connect them all.

Two breathtaking romances interweave across time in this story of what lies on the other side of Fate, as both Jas and Luc discover the incredible lengths they will go for love.
