Untraceable Launch and Author Interview and Giveaway !


 Hey Guys ! Today Untraceable by S.R. Johannes releases! I was lucky enough to be part of this launch, and even more so I got the chance to interview Mrs. Johannes! Here is a sneak preview of the book!y 

16 year old Grace has lived in the Smokies all her life, patrolling with her forest ranger father who taught her about wildlife, tracking, and wilderness survival.
When her dad goes missing on a routine patrol, Grace refuses to believe he’s dead and fights the town authorities, tribal officials, and nature to find him.
One day, while out tracking clues, Grace is rescued from danger by Mo, a hot guy with an intoxicating accent and a secret. As her feelings between him and her ex-boyfriend get muddled, Grace travels deep into the wilderness to escape and find her father.
Along the way, Grace learns terrible secrets that sever relationships and lives. Soon she’s enmeshed in a web of conspiracy, deception, and murder. And it’s going to take a lot more than a compass and a motorcycle (named Lucifer) for this kick-butting heroine to save everything she loves.

So that was a little blurb on the book here is some inside scoop I got ! 

I:  Your book sounds intriguing and I can't wait till I can get my hands on it! What actually gave you the idea of setting the novel in a wilderness setting, and that to a contemporary novel? 
 SRJ: I loved James Patterson as a teen. I used to sneak my mom’s books and read them late at night. So I always wanted to be James Patterson for kids writing thrillers. My hubby came home from camping one weekend and said, “I was so deep in the woods. Someone could do anything and easily get away with it. That sparked my idea and it grew from there.
I:  When you were writing Untraceable where did you find the most inspiration to write?What was your cozy corner on this planet ;) ? 
 SRJ: I’m a mom so I don’t have time to get inspired. I write when I can in my office amidst all the bills, toys, and books. J
 I: So there are not one but TWO hot guys in your book! I think everyone is curious about them...So Tell us more! (and pictures please if you have any) 
 SRJ: Mo is a wilderness buff just like Grace. He knows his way around the woods. He’s sexy and mysterious and…he treats Grace very well. Tells her exactly how he feels. No games. Imagine that J
Wyn on the other hand is her ex and long time best friend. He is anti nature. He’s the friend who grows on you. He loves Grace but still has a hard time getting to the point. He doesn’t want to lose their friendship.
I:  If you had to make a book playlist of songs, what are some songs you would have on the playlist?
SRJ:Grace by U2
         Time is Running Out by Muse
         Somewhere Only we Know - Keane
I:   In Untraceable what are some things we should be looking forward too ? 
SRJ: In addition to twists and turns, I think you will walk away learning something that will break your heart and that will always be with you.
I: In three words how would you describe grace?
SRJ: Natural
I: If you could have only 5 things with you when stranded on a deserted island what would you take  ?
SRJ: My family (1 hubby and 2 small kids )
         A book

It’s all I need :D 

I: Favorite food?
SRJ:Mexican Cheese dip and chips
I: Do you like chocolate ?
SRJ: Duh! Yes. The darker the better. My fav is Ghirardelli Pomegranate squares but they don’t make them much L
I: If you could live underwater would you?
SRJ: Heck no! I’m scared of what else lives there too. I prefer land unless there is none. Then can I choose a ship?
I: Coke or Pepsi?
SRJ: I don’t really drink soda. If I did, it would be Coke Zero. But sweet ice tea is my downfall.
I: Writing or reading?
SRJ: Writing. It makes me happy.
I: And lastly: Inspirations to become an author?
SRJ: To leave a mark on this earth.
