I loved your question. It really got me thinking. I believe everything I hear and see inspires me to come up with a story but organizing my thoughts and writing a novel takes discipline and commitment.

I really appreciate your help spreading the word about my book. Please email me a request to andreabizderiwhelan@gmail.com with your Netgalley username and I will forward it to Patchwork Press that listed 14 Days to Die on Netgalley.

"Problematic

The beginning of this book bounces between time periods. The intense scenes are difficult for me to read. Coming from a long background of abuse I guess it is not surprising. I was well pleased with the ending though!" Read more of this review »

“Oh, God … you’re so beautiful,” I said in a weak voice, my head enchanted. He smiled at me and turned to the thin, elderly lady next to him whose skin seamed with wrinkles.“She must still have a fever,” Victor said, fighting a smile, which just made him even more breathtaking.”
