Featured Interview With Addison Kline
Tell us a little about yourself. Where were you raised? Where do you live now?
I am an international best selling author from Philadelphia, PA. I write romantic suspense, psychological thrillers and mystery novels. I grew up in South Philadelphia, but I now live on the outskirts of the city in Andorra, where I live with my husband, our children, and our two dogs.
At what age did you realize your fascination with books? When did you start writing?
I have had an interest in the written word since I was a young child. I started writing my first short story at age six, and my first novel at age 15. I have always been very passionate about writing, and I am a firm believer that there is an adventure to be had within to pages of each and every book.
Who are your favorite authors to read? What is your favorite genre to read. Who Inspires you in your writings?
I devour mystery novels. There is something incomparable to a really well-written, well-planned mystery novel. I also enjoy romantic suspense and psychological thrillers. Some of my favorite authors include J.K. Rowling, Gillian Flynn and Stephen King. My biggest inspirations have been Emily Dickinson, Edgar Allen Poe, Nicholas Sparks and Ray Bradbury. Mr. Bradbury has an amazing quote that I adhere to, “Let the world burn through you. Throw the prism light, white hot, on the paper.” My passion for the written word burns through me. With a mind that will not still, and a heart that yearns for the opportunity to express itself, writing has became as natural to me as breathing.
Tell us a little about your latest book?
On December 14, 2015, I am releasing book one in my mafia thriller/romantic suspense novel, titled Miles Away.
The mafia couldn’t kill him.
Prison couldn’t break him.
Going home threatens to do both.
Miles Capadonno has made some mistakes. Once part of the Capadonno crime family, he took the fall for another member of the crime family who once tried to kill him. At age 17, they put a contract out on Miles’ head for neglecting to complete a job. It was a matter of priority. Miles went to his dying mother’s side instead of picking up stolen merchandise from the ship yard. When you’re in with the Capadonno’s, whether you’re blood or sworn in, when they say jump you jump, when they say kill you kill. Ignoring an order is an offense of the highest degree. When they couldn’t kill him, they let Miles take the fall for another Capadonno family member. Now 15 years later, Miles is being released. He is ready to put his past behind him. There’s only one problem. There is still a contract on Miles’ head. This time, Miles is man enough to collect on owed debts, and he will not back down from the family that stabbed him in the back.
Leticia “Letty” Alves is a saucy Latina and Miles’ old high school girlfriend. She was only 16 when Miles was arrested, but she hasn’t stopped wondering about the boy who charmed her all those years ago. Now working as a nurse for a home health agency, Letty’s priorities are to take care of herself and her 18 month old son, Gabriel. But when Miles walks back into her life everything changes, and suddenly, the family that she had avoided all her life, is now breathing down her neck looking for Miles. Letty is no damsel in distress, though. She’s a fighter, and she never backs down from a challenge.
Sparks fly when Miles and Letty reunite. Can they put their differences aside to become one again? Can Miles set down his pride and accept the help and love that Letty can provide? Will Letty get over her resentment over being left so long ago when Miles was arrested? Only readers know for sure.
Welcome to Carrion, New Jersey, where the Capadonno’s call the shots. Miles was away for so long, but now the prodigal son has returned. One thing is for sure, the family business isn’t ready for a bastard like him.
