One psychotic soldier was to blame.
From The Book Junkie Reads . . . Fear Nothing . . .
My first read with and not my last. I was enticed by the pull and push between Skye and Bohdi. My heart strings were pulled by the loss Skye was suffering. I could feel her hurt and betrayal with the return of Bohdi to her life. I then came to understand the reasoning behind his departure. Watching them reconnect again, of course a killer was after her, was warming. I look forward to experiencing more of Malloy’s work. This short kept me going all the way to the end.
Years ago, Skye Everwood survived a vicious assault, and now, she’s losing her eyesight as she faces her worst nightmare… Her attacker is back to finish what he started.
When the love of her life unexpectedly shows up at her restaurant, she knows it’s not a coincidence. Skye never understood why Bodhi King disappeared after that fateful day. Their plans to get married went up in smoke, just like her dreams to stay in the JAG Core. Unsure if she can trust him with her heart—let alone her life—she searches to find answers to why he left in the first place.

MY INTERVIEW WITH AMBER MALLOY
How would you describe your style of writing to someone who has never read your work?
That’s a hard one … I try to create a whole new world for the reader.
What mindset or routine do you feel the need to set when preparing to write (in general, whether you are working on a project or just free writing)?
None at this point, because I have to get it in where I can. I used to blare music and knock back some wine. Now, I just need time.
Do you take your character prep to heart? Do you nurture the growth of each character all the way through to the page? Do you people watch to help with development? Or do you build upon your character during story creation?
For character prep, I start with their strengths and then smack you with their insecurities. I want the reader to know the characters in a way they can figure out their motives to any given situation.
Have you found yourself bonding with any particular character? If so which one(s)?
When I’m writing the story, I think bonding does happen. However, once the book is done I move on to the next one.
Do you have a character who you have been working on that you can't wait to put to paper?
There’s a few, but unfortunately there’s a line and they have to wait until their number is called.
Have you ever felt there was something inside of you that you couldn't control? If so, what? If no, what spurs you to reach for the unexperienced?
People shy away from things they fear, so when I find myself doing that I try to go toward the experience. I think the key is realizing that the anxiety is happening and what’s causing it.
