One text can change everything.
Honor Calhoun never thought her life would ever be like the books she writes for a living. One morning while out for a run, she learns not all bad things are plots in novels. Some horrors can actually come true.
She faces off with a persistent attacker, holds her own, but in the end is taken hostage and thrown into a hole. In the middle of the woods.
But Honor didn’t go down there alone.
She took her kidnapper’s phone with her. With a spotty signal and a dying battery, her hope is slim.
Nathan Reed is an active duty Marine stationed at a small reserve base in Pennsylvania. All he wants is a calm and uneventful duty station where he can forget the memories of his time in a war-torn country.
But a single text changes everything.
Nathan becomes Honor’s only hope for survival, and he has to go against the clock, push aside his past, and take on a mission for a girl he’s never met.
Both of them want freedom… but they have to survive long enough to obtain it.
Readers have a great privilege of stepping directly into an author’s mind. They have in front of them in black and white what someone else was thinking and feeling as they were writing. It’s actually pretty personal.
But even though you read the thoughts that swirl through an author’s mind doesn’t mean you really know them, because the thoughts and feelings they write are usually a character’s.
I think sometime’s reader’s wonder about the person behind the book. The author.
So in today’s post I am going to tell you 10 things about me that you don’t know.
1. My favorite movies are the Fast & Furious movies. I watch them all the time.
2. I hate crickets. All the crickets that are around my house are always missing a leg. It’s the creepiest thing ever.
3. My favorite food of all time is cereal. (Any kind)
4. When I write I wear a hoodie and flip the hood up over my head. It blocks out distractions.
5. I’m extremely stubborn. (Yep, I’m a Taurus)
6. I can be superstitious.
7. I hate clutter. (That show hoarders gives me hives).
8. I use Proactiv because I suffer from acne. (notice I said suffer. I mean really, is it fair I am 32 and still have to have it??)
9. I like to run. It helps me clear my head and manage stress.
10. I’ve moved six times in the past 10 years.
And those are ten things about Cambria Hebert.
Now tell us one thing about you!
A little about Cambria
I love coffee. I have two kids and two dogs, and 2 cats. I am married to a US Marine. I have an irrational fear of chickens (they are creepy!), I love the rain and fall is my favorite season.
Did you learn anything from writing your book and what was it?
I’ve learned through writing that I am a lot stronger than I ever thought and that I am way more stubborn than even I realized (trust me I am super stubborn).
Do you have any advice for other writers?
Keep writing. Don’t stop. Be prepared for a long and sometimes hard road to publication. It’s a touch business but you can do it. Anyone can do it if you really want it.
What inspired you to write your first book?
This is such a hard question. LOL. You think it would be easy. Honestly, I just got this character – this person stuck in my head. I started dreaming about him. One day I decided to write down what I kept thinking. It grew into a book and I have been writing every since.
Tell us your latest news
I recently joined the circus! Okay I didn’t. But, I am allergic to elephants. That’s not recent but it’s true. My latest news is that TEXT is released!!! I am so incredibly excited about this book. I think it’s my favorite book of mine in the Take It Off series. I also have another book coming out in early December called TIPSY!
What TV shows/films do you enjoy watching?
My favorite shows are The Originals, The Vampire Diaries and Teen Wolf. I also really like Melissa & Joey – it’s funny.
Favorite foods / Colors/ Music
