Author Interview: Camilla Ochlan & Bonita Gutierrez

Welcome to my blog interview with novelists, Camilla Ochlan and Bonita Gutierrez, authors of THE WEREWOLF WHISPERER SERIES.

Camilla Ochlan grew up on fantasy and fairy tales, finding David Eddings, Katherine Kurtz, Guy Gavriel Kay, and Mercedes Lackey early on. To thedismay of her parents, she spent her high school weekends playing Dungeons & Dragons. College split her time between Theatre Arts and English Literature.

Camilla still occasionally acts but focuses the majority of her time, energy and (in)sanity on writing. Her interests revolve around activities that add to her writer’s toolbox — travel, the arts and voracious reading.

Bonita Gutierrez¬†found her way to the stage at the early age of five. After college, she moved to Los Angeles to get into “The Biz.” Over the years, she’s played many roles from actor to producer, screenwriter to filmmaker — and now novelist.

A mixed martial artist, Bonita has a background in Jeet Kune Do Kung Fu (Bruce Lee’s art), Kenpo Karate MMA and Kali Escrima (stick and knife fighting). An avid runner, student of film and lover of music, Bonita is a self-proclaimed hamburger connoisseur with a passion for all things Star Wars and Buffy.

Book Review: Imitation by Heather Hildenbrand

I was recently given a copy of this novel in exchange for my honest opinion.

Book Description from the Publisher: 

Everyone is exactly like me. There is no one like me. IMITATION

Ven wrestles with these contradicting truths every day. A clone of wealthy eighteen-year-old Raven Rogen, Ven knows everything about the girl she was created to serve: the clothes she wears, the boys she loves, the friends she loves to hate. Yet she‚Äôs never met the Authentic Raven face-to-face. Imitations like Ven only get to leave the lab when they‚Äôre needed‚ÄĒto replace a dead Authentic, donate an organ, or complete a specific mission. And Raven has¬†never¬†needed Ven . . . until now.

When there is an attack on Raven’s life, Ven is thrust into the real world, posing as Raven to draw-out the people who tried to harm her. But as Ven dives deeper into Raven’s world, she begins to question everything she was ever told. She exists for Raven, but is she prepared to sacrifice herself for a girl she’s never met?

What I enjoyed about this book:
Hildenbrand creates a socially relevant fantasy that explores the unsavory side of cloning. This suspense-filled, dystopian novel has great pacing, and keeps you interested to the last page. (more…)
