Guest Author Lynn Rush

Be nice to me or I’ll kill you in my next novel
Have you guys seen that shirt around? I have and I just LOVE that phrase.
I often get asked how I come up with some of my characters and it triggered a thought about that t-shirt slogan—LOL
An example of how I came up with one character is when this girl sauntered into a Barnes and Noble one day. She wore this crazy outfit, had an arrogant walk about her, and was very happy talking quite loud to garner the attention from everyone in the near vicinity.
She became the opening scene of one of my novels.
Of course I magnified her characteristics and later had demons chomping on her leg…but she sparked ideas for an interesting character I could have fun manipulating.
And maybe I had demons attacking her was because she seriously disturbed everyone around her with her loud talking, boisterous attitude, and space-consuming personality. Even though, honestly, I found her disturbance intriguing; hence the opening scene of my novel.
Oh, and in case you want to know, I didn’t actually kill her off….

Whether you’re a reader or a writer, where do you get your inspiration from? Ever run into something like that where someone’s disrupting those around him/her? How’d you react? Writers, did you toss “them” into a book and kill them off? Or let demons gnaw on their legs…oh wait, that’s mine. I already did that! J

Driven to write, Lynn Rush often sees her characters by closing her eyes watching their story unfold in her mind. Lynn Rush is a pen name that is a combination of two sources – Lynn, the first name of her mother-in-law, who passed away and Rush – since the author is a former inline speed skater and mountain biker. All of Rush’s books are dedicated to Lynn, her namesake.
Rush holds a degree in psychology from Southwest Minnesota State University and a master's degree from the University of Iowa. Originally from Minneapolis, Rush currently enjoys living in the Arizona sunshine by road biking nearly 100 miles per week with her husband of 15 years and jogging with her two loveable Shetland Sheep dogs.

Book Blurb for Awaited:
The voice is a powerful thing. . .
Russell Leonard is a centuries-old Guardian who’s lost faith in his purpose. So when he’s charged with procuring the first female Guardian in over two centuries, he can only hope it’s the red-headed beauty who’s been haunting his dreams for months. And if it is, he intends to claim her as his. But when he finds his dream woman, Annabelle is mute and bears no Guardian’s Mark.
He soon realizes she’s been tainted by an ancient evil. Russell must somehow release the secrets trapped within this delicate soul to help her tap into the only weapon powerful enough to silence a millennia-old demon—her voice.
“From the first action-packed scene, AWAITED grabs you and doesn't let go until its awesome conclusion.” ~~Caridad Piñeiro, NY Times Best-Selling Author
