 Reader Behind the Author with 
Natasha Larry Author of:

First the interview then we can learn more about Natasha and her books

A lot of times in books the girl has to choose between 2 guys, is there a book that you totally did not agree with her choice. Tell us who, and why.
It always bothered me that Jean Grey chose Cyclops over Wolverine. LoL. I mean, Cyclops has to be the most boring superhero in the Marvel Universe, and well, Wolverine is just really hot.

Where do you get your books from, buy them (where from), library, or somewhere else?
I get the majority of my books from Books-A-Million and the library.

What is the last book you read that you totally fell in love with? 
Burned by Ellen Hopkins. The author swept me away on a journey of discovery. I’m hooked on her junk now. =)

 If you could meet an author alive or dead who would it be and what would you say?
Frank Miller. I don’t think I’d be able to speak. I would probably just stare at him slack-jawed and drool all over myself. So not cool.

If you could go on a girls night out with any 5 book characters who would you pick and why? 
Katniss, Anita Blake, Harley Quinn, and Rogue and…. Blair Nolan ;)

A book world you would love to live in? 
The Hunger Games… no idea why.

You have no books at all to read and you really want to read, what book are you going to grab from your stash and do a reread? 
Frank Miller’s Batman: Year One.

 Is there a book you think is amazing, yet not a lot of other people do or it’s just not very popular. (if so tell us about it) 
I really liked Bound by Kira Saito. It’s about a voodoo queen and the author made her hot, which I’ve never seen done. It is also authentic which impressed me. I think it’s going to do very well.

What is the first book you fell in love with?
Superfudge by Judy Blume.

Your bookshelf is on fire and you can only take what you can carry, what are you grabbing? 
Oh, God… really? All of my Ellen Hopkins, all of my Frank Miller, Watchmen by Alan Moore, anything by Alexander Hammond. Wait, I should probably grab my kid as well ;)

Your best friend asked you for a book recommendation, what book would you pick for them? 
Crank by Ellen Hopkins.

 A book that made you cry? 
To Kill a Mockingbird.

What book are you currently reading? 
Right now I am finishing up The Darkest Night series from DC comics.

 If you could trade places for the day with any book character who would you pick?
Well, if I could leave behind the narcissism and self-loathing, 
I would probably choose
Batman. I like the idea of being unbeatable.

You have to fight in an epic battle to save the world, what 5 characters are you picking?
Batman, Wonder Woman, Hal Jordan, Superman and, I shouldn’t pick one of my own characters but I love him, Matt Carter.

How many books do you own?
Heh, I have no idea actually. I have nine-hundred books on my kindle alone.

Favorite book cover? 
Catching Fire in the Hunger Games series.

Where is your favorite reading spot?
I like going to Big Spring Park to read.

About Her Books:

Seventeen-year-old Jaycie Lerner's life is complicated enough, but trying to act normal and fit in really gets difficult when her telekinesis and telepathy kick in. Jaycie's not just special, she's super-special. And with her great power comes great responsibility ... sometimes more than she can handle. But she's got her oddball family to help her - a super-strong and fast surrogate mom, a telepathic dad, a very persuasive godfather, and a new friend who's really hot - literally! Jaycie's just trying to get through every day and learn how to maintain control over her powers. But when trouble strikes, things really heat up fast, and literally get explosive. The good news is, she's got someone special looking out for her - at least she thinks it's good news...

Seventeen-year-old Jaycie Lerner’s psycho-kinetic power surge is over, and her astounding powers are under control for the time being – sort of. As she struggles to maintain her humanity in the face of the awesome terror and responsibility of her abilities, she also yearns for the chance at a normal life – and a relationship with Matt Carter, the best friend she had to leave behind. But Matt’s got a few tricks up his sleeve, and he’s not about to give up on his feelings for Jaycie.

As Jaycie and her family grapple with the day-to-day routine of trying to keep their world together, Jaycie’s mother figure, Allison Young, endures a personal crisis of her own. The superhuman blonde possesses the physical equivalent of Jaycie’s awesome psychic power.

So evolved, at ninety-two she still looks twenty. But what good is extended life when everyone else around her is so fragile? With no one to share her unusual life, she’s a uniquely lonely woman yearning for the romantic love she sees all around her. But in a dream she gets her wish – and it quickly turns to a nightmare for everyone else in her life. The memory of a rose is all she can hold onto in the storm of obsession that nearly sweeps her away.

Things quickly turn deadly for the vampires, but the Dey-Vah Guard fairies refuse to acknowledge there’s an imbalance in the nature they protect. As the danger gets ever closer to Jaycie and her family, the race is on to find answers before a secret plot can destroy them.
