Author Spotlight: Rebekah R. Ganiere

In today's spotlight, I've got Rebekah Ganiere, author of the newly released DEAD AWAKENINGS, which tells the story of Evaine, a struggling theatre student who enters an unsanctioned drug trial to pay her bills. She awakens in a derelict hospital, chained to a bed with no memory of who she is, or how she got there. A band of pale-skinned men, led by the gorgeous Luca, burst in, whisking her away to safety of a place called Haven House. Once there, Evaine meets The Family. Like them, she has become A Deader, a reanimated Undead.

Luca is hell-bent on stopping the experiments, and killing those responsible. He has no time for a Newborn who is struggling to control her rages, hunger, and powers. Nor does he have the desire to deal with the feelings she's awakening within him. Despite their best efforts, Evaine and Luca find their connection intensifying when suddenly, she remembers not only who she is, but also her fiancé, Tristan, who is still looking for her.

Torn between her first love and her new heart’s desire, Evaine runs back to Tristan putting everyone in danger. When a rogue faction of Deaders, called Feeders, attempts to kidnap her, Luca suspects Evaine is the key to the experiments.

Can everyone band together to keep Evaine off the cutting table of those from whom she escaped? Or will second death tear her away from everyone for good?

If you think that sounds intriguing, watch the trailer, below, or check out the five-star reviews the book's already received at and buy it while you're there!

Rebekah Ganiere (who, as you can see, is gorgeous as well as talented) grew up on both the east and west coasts and currently lives in the Los Angeles area. From THE GIVING TREE by Shel Silverstein to THE STAND by Stephen King, Rebekah immersed herself in other people's made up worlds. She began writing in junior high and then found she liked pretending to be other people's characters in high school. Lettering in drama she went on to study theater in college as well. After college she continued acting till becoming a mom. Ultimately, she ended up going back to writing her characters down instead of acting them out, so she could stay at home with her kids. Rebekah is a member of Romance Writers of America and is a board member of both the Fantasy, Futuristic, and Paranormal and her local Los Angeles chapters.

When she isn't spending time telling the lives of the characters constantly chattering inside her head, you can find her with her husband and four children reading comic books, gaming, at the movies or taking care of their menagerie: a dog, a rabbit, two bearded dragons, and three tortoises. Wonder woman, the escaped snake, has yet to be located.
