Author Spotlight: THE ALIAS by Mandi Tucker Slack

Jacey Grayson is an average, young, divorced mother struggling to build a new life for her son, Blaze. But when the FBI discloses some disturbing information about her ex-husband, Jacey's life becomes anything but average. At the risk of losing her identity, her future, and her heart, Jacey and Blaze flee to Utah, hoping to hide and start over once again. But no matter how far she runs or who she pretends to be, her past is always lurking nearby, bringing old fears with it. Thrilling action and a suspenseful plot make this novel an edge-of-your-seat-read.

Got your attention? Good. I'm super excited to spotlight Mandi Tucker Slack and her novel, The Alias, today on my blog. In case you aren't aware, her next novel, Tide Ever Rising, will be out soon. You can pick up The Alias on Amazon or your favorite bookseller. And I got you all the link for her book trailer, so be sure and check it out!

About Mandi Tucker Slack: I am the mother of three wonderful children. I grew up in Orangeville, UT, where my dad worked as a coal miner for eighteen years. I love the outdoors and spending time exploring new, exciting places with my family. I was a very imaginative child and that love of imagination carried into my adulthood. I love writing novels, especially romance and suspense.

She also graciously submitted to my poor interviewing skills, allowing me to prod her with a few questions and submitting these answers:

Cheri: What made you start writing?

Mandi: When I was a child, I had a very active imagination. I used to play act my stories. Now, as an adult, I can't act to save my life, so I write.

Cheri: What *keeps* you writing?

Mandi:  I have such an active imagination. I write, because I just feel driven to get the stories in my head down on paper. I love to create my own stories and build my own characters.

Cheri: What are a few of your favorite books to read?

Mandi: I have a ton of favorites, but these are the books I tend to read over-and-over again. Mrs. Mike by Nancy and Benedict Freeman, Return to Red Castle by Dorothy Keddington, and Run Away Home by Jennie Hansen.

Thank you, Mandi, for visiting From the Other Side of the Mirror. I look forward to reviewing Tide Ever Rising next month!
