Laurie's Non-paranormal Thoughts and Reviews: Chaos Unleashed by AmBear Shellea: Character Inter...

Laurie's Non-paranormal Thoughts and Reviews: Chaos Unleashed by AmBear Shellea: Character Inter...:

Scarlet Woods

How is everyone today?  Well, this is just gonna make your day better! I got to sit down with the lovely Morgan Westbrook from Scarlet Woods. Check it out!

Morgan, thanks for putting aside some of your time traveling to answer some questions for this interview.

I’m happy to do it, besides Danny was the one time traveling to see me in the future today so I didn’t miss out on anything really.

So, how exactly do you time travel to the year 1863?

I found out about time travel accidentally one day. I came upon this door in the woods behind my house and had no idea that walking through it would take me back to another century. It was a crazy experience and I still don’t know how that door is a portal through time, but hey it works so I take full advantage of time traveling every day.

Is there anyone who knows that you time travel?

Just Danny, no one else knows our secret. We can’t risk telling anyone about the door and have people think we’re crazy.

Now Danny Carson is the boy you met back in 1863 correct?

Yeah, he lives here in Scarlet but I live in the future while he lives in 1863. It’s weird that we both live in the same town but since we live in different centuries it’s like we live on two different planets since our time periods are so opposite.

So speaking of Danny, he is engaged right?


And I’m guessing that you don’t get along with his fiancée?

I would rather jump off a cliff if it meant avoiding her.

What’s the best thing about time traveling back to the nineteenth century?

Oh gosh it’s so much fun! I can’t even describe how incredible it is to be able to time travel. There are so many things I love about it that it’s so hard to choose what’s best. Even though sometimes I don’t like all the layers to the undergarments in the nineteenth century, I really do enjoy parading around in all the luxurious dresses I have. Also, men are much more gentlemanly to women during this time.

What’s the worst thing about the nineteenth century?

I freakin hate slavery. End of story. I could go on and on. Thanks to time travel, I have met this boy named Sam who is a slave and I just hate what all he has to go through at his plantation. Some slaves aren’t treated as bad as him, but still I don’t like it.

Do you have any people in your life right now that you don’t care for?

Well there’s Danny’s fiancée Evelyn Walker, who hates my guts, and then there’s her brother Roy Walker, who also hates my guts. I can’t stand the sight of him. He’s such a douche. The Walkers are the ones who own Sam. Roy is the main one who treats Sam bad. Every time I see Roy I want to punch him in the face.

Is the Civil War a big problem during this time for you and Danny?

The war hasn’t come to Scarlet yet. It will though eventually in 1864. I’ve told Danny about how the Union will come through Scarlet and practically destroy our town to the ground. He is scared of what is to happen to his home.

Well, then that was a great Interview!  While she packs up and heads out to ehr next destination, I owuld like to share a little about Scarlet Woods! 


Past, future, and love all exist in the door through time.
Modern and independent seventeen year old Morgan Westbrook thought she
had seen all there was to her home town of Scarlet, Georgia, but one
day while walking in the woods behind her house she discovers a
mysterious door masked behind the trees. After admiring the door’s
timeless beauty she walks through its entrance to venture into more
woods, but what she doesn’t know is that the door is a gateway through
time that takes her back to the year 1863 during the days of the Civil
War in Scarlet.
Without knowing that she had traveled back in time, she stumbles upon
Danny Carson, an attractive young man who is appalled to see that
Morgan is wearing skimpy modern clothes instead of a nineteenth
century dress. Although they find each other completely different than
anyone they’ve ever known, they cannot help but feel drawn to one
another. After spending time in another century, she discovers that
she's time traveled back to the year 1863 and that the door took her
there. For months she and Danny journey back and forth through the
door to experience the joys of traveling to both of their centuries.
When dilemmas of unwanted marriage, slavery, and war are thrown at
them, they must face the perils that time travel has delivered them in
both the future and the past.

Well now, This sounds like a def Must-Read! How about I give you teh info to find out more about her and the Scarlet Woods! Oh Look, she left her Author bio on teh coffe table- here:

Author Bio
I live in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma and am a 22 year old young woman who
probably will never fully grow up. As a kid I played with Polly
Pockets, swam in my swimming pool practically every day during the
summer, and went on vacations to Disney World with my family (favorite
days of my life). I loved telling stories as a kid by playing with my
Polly’s and dressing up like princesses with my friends. Eventually
everything that went on in my busy imagination I wrote down on paper
in the late hours of the night.

When I was in sixth grade I moved into a new house with woods directly
behind my backyard. I’d walk about the woods and loved trampling
through the creek or getting lost in the trees. These trips through
the woods gave me my inspiration for my book trilogy Scarlet Woods. My
main character in my book is Morgan who lives in a house where the
woods are right behind her backyard. My love for trees and anything
woodsy definitely shows in my book and I hope I painted a pretty
picture in readers’ heads about what Scarlet Woods looks like.

My favorite candies are Skittles and M&M’s. I put ketchup on
practically anything with meat (even with chicken quesadillas). I’m a
great fan of Florence and the Machine, The Beatles, Taylor Swift,
Carrie Underwood, Birdie, and recently The Civil Wars. My favorite
books are The Hunger Games, Shiver, and Wither. My favorite movies are
Titanic and Gone with the Wind. The Vampire Diaries is the wonderful
TV show I’m obsessed with (I’m a Delena lover!!). I hate ads on
youtube that I repeatedly have to skip every single time I want to
listen to the newest song from Glee. I love to smile, laugh, and
purposefully sing loud and off key whenever my brother is around just
to pester him. I have a cat named Phoebe who we named after Phoebe
from Friends, a yorkie named Coco who we named because he likes to eat
Cocoa Puffs, and a shih tzu maltese we named Indy after Indiana Jones.
My favorite princess is Cinderella but I think my personality is a tie
between Ariel and Belle so they’re all my ultimate faves. If I could
choose a century to time travel to I’d probably choose the Victorian
age, the roaring 20’s, the 1950’s, or the 1940’s. I think the
Victorian age and the 1940’s were probably the most romantic eras in
history and the 20’s and 50’s would probably the most fun!

Touching Eternity by Airicka Phoenix
What would you choose?
She had everything but freedom.
He had nothing but his loyalty, his wits and his training.
She was a prisoner, a disease, not fit for the world, and she didn't know why. But she did know she wasn't allowed to die, she wasn't allowed to live and she wasn’t sane.
He was a soldier, a protector, but his foundation will be tested when he must destroy the only light in his dark world.
Thrown together, prisoner and keeper, their rebellion will splinter through time, changing the course of history and the fate of the world. Their love will challenge their greatest enemy and immortalize them forever.
Loyalty. Freedom. Love.
What would you risk?
"Let me die."
Pain darkened his eyes. "Never."
Who is this?

Airicka Phoenix is the author of TOUCHING SMOKE (Touch Book #1, TOUCHING ETERNITY (Touch 1.5), TORRID, a short story as part of the Whispered Beginnings: A Clever Fiction Anthology and WANTING & INTENTIONS, two stories as part of the Midnight Surrender Anthology. When she's not hammering away at the keyboard, she can be found banishing pirates or crawling through the attic looking for lost treasure with her kids. She loves baking, gardening and reading. She also likes to travel and take pictures of everything she comes across. When asked, Airicka describes herself as a sarcastic basket case that has an unhealthy addiction to chocolate, old movies and really bad jokes. She loves to laugh, make friends and write. If she could have one wish granted, it would be to spend one day as a fly-on-the-wall inside Stephen King's mind. If she could have two wishes granted, she would ask for a castle dedicated entirely to her overwhelming collection of books.
