GILLIAN JOY - THE GUARDIAN TRILOGY - YA PARANORMAL - SELF PUBLISHED - AUSSIE AUTHOR ROAD TRIP - DAY 23


Day 23:  I am off to Victoria for the day visiting Gillian Joy. Check out her gorgeous covers to her The Guardian Trilogy and her 6 Quick Things.

Welcome Gillian.

AUTHOR BIO:


Gillian Joy currently resides on the Mornington Peninsula, Victoria, Australia with her husband, two beautiful children, a few fish and a dog. She earns a living designing houses and spends most of her free time reading and writing, of which the latter has become more of an obsession. Gillian has published three books in the Guardian series, and is currently working on Conjuring Love, a prequel to the Guardian trilogy. She is also working on Body and Soul a science fiction manuscript that explores separate themes and No chance to say Goodbye a semi auto-biography based on her brother’s teenage suicide.


6 Quick Things 


 A quote that means something to you. 

" Do as I say, not as I do." my mother used to always say it and now I use it all the time with my kids as well as an addendum "Do what I mean, not what I say" Lol 


 A song that describes you. 

I have no idea, but I absolutely love the song Tapestry by Carole King although I wouldn't say it describes me. 



Who is your book boyfriend? 

I read far too much and have far too many book boyfriends to even think about beginning naming them all so I will just say Gabriel from my own series, because he is perfection personified and he's with me constantly.


Who is your book girlfriend?


Girlfriend, I'm not really that way inclined. 



Author that inspired you and why? 

I have been reading for far too long and there are far too many authors that I love, but as far inspiration goes I would probably have to Stephanie Meyer. I read the twilight books and thought, well I can write as good as that and if she can do why can't I. Ok, so I'm not quite THERE yet, but I've made a start :) 


Will you be attending the Indie Author Down Under Gold Coast event 22nd March 2014?

I don't know at this stage. I would like to. I am going to Aussie Author meet and greet in Sydney in November.

Headstrong and determined, Hannah always knew that she would become the Guardian. She was the keeper and the protector of all supernatural. What she didn't expect was that it would mean she would have to endure the agonising death of her mother first hand as their supernatural connection brings her to her knees, or that it would mean that she could never be with the man she loved.

Blond haired, blue eyed Gabriel was her handsome childhood friend, but would circumstances prevent her from ever being able to explore her true feelings for him?

Jesse, the dark alluring but incorrigible vampire would give anything to be with her, but as the guardian Hannah is forbidden to fall in love with the supernatural.

With her life in turmoil over her conflicting emotions about Gabriel and Jesse and her frustration at being unable to exact revenge for her mother’s horrific death, Hannah flees her life in an attempt to start over. But can we ever really escape from ourselves?

There is no escaping destiny no matter how hard she might try and Hannah must learn to reconcile her commitment to her family with her responsibility as the Guardian and her duty to her heart.

Hannah’s life has never been easy, despite her strong willed determination and her extra “gifts”, it's still always been hard work keeping an entire world full of the supernatural under control, but having achieved a small semblance of control over most of the custas, Hannah was hoping to be able to slip back into her life of normalcy. Wishful thinking when you're the guardian of all supernatural.

With all the issues she’d had to endure in her past, she'd never had to worry about the mermaids before, so why would they choose now to suddenly start haunting her dreams and her life. Then there are the fairies to contend with as well, just when she manages to get one aspect of the crudelitas under control, the others decide it’s time to start causing problems.
All Hannah wants is some quiet family time and a chance to reflect on her feelings for Gabriel but instead she's thrown back into the thick of the supernatural world, and this time it threatens to invade the quiet family life she has worked so hard to establish. There's no running away this time, she has to front the challenges head on, but forever can be a long time if you can't be with the one you love.

The Nephilim are on the hunt again but this time it’s not only the vampires they are hunting; and knowing that Hannah is still on the lookout for a new Custas, why would the witches be willing to work in conjunction with them? Then there’s Gabriel; after waiting for centuries to be with Hannah, what could possibly ever entice him to want to kill her. With all the supernatural issues she has to contend with how is it even possible a human could be any sort of a threat to the family life Hannah has built up.

For over three centuries, one thing has been Hannah’s main driving force, but is it even possible for her to ever track Phelip down and get the final Revenge, and the final peace she has been hunting for.
