Alisha: Yes! There will be three books, well unless fans beg me for a certain backstory! Lol! Book Three will be titled a Beautiful Freedom. It will be told from the point of view of main ccharacter’s best friend.

A Veil of Enlightenment: I like the sound of that title! A nice way to tie things up (pardon my pun!)

Alisha: Hahaha! Thank you! 🙂

A Veil of Enlightenment: My first question for you is in your first book My Beautiful Nightmare you really write about a lot of dark issues.  How were you  able  to  find  inspiration to create such a violent male character?

Alisha: Honestly? Music helped with the plot to get things going, but I have been through a lot and the whole time I wrote it, my writing  came from a lot of hurt and anger that I haven’t  really dealt with.

I’m so sorry sweetie. It has been  said writing can be cathartic and I must say this book you created came from your soul I could tell.  It’s a beautiful masterpiece! 🙂 ♡

Now how about telling your readers more about the fun side of you that I adore?

Alisa: Thank you that means alot! 🙂

A Veil of Enlightenment: When a book touches me I have to tell my followers and this one definitely touched me! Whoohoo!

Alisha: Okay, the fun side of me? HMM…. I am very quirky and love to have fun. I am that girl that dances around the house when alone. I am quite random and love a handful of of things that you would never guess I like!

A Veil of Enlightenment :  Ooh intriguing! Now you can’t leave us all hanging like that Alisa! Spill! We want to hear these random things you like!

Alisha: Hahaha!  I love leaving people on the edge it’s exciting! Anywho, I love the show Ancient Aliens, Finding BigFoot, & Spartacus. My tastes vary! I am a Thor, Hello Kitty, & pizza  addict (not kidding,  I obsess over anything having to do with those things!) Hahaha! I love zombies,  playing  video games, and aliens fascinate me! Lol! Did I mention I was random? 🙂

A Veil of Enlightenment :  Whoa! That is random stuff! But it makes you unique! So here’s a random question for you than, do you have any unique piercings or tattoos? Please keep it PG! 🙂

Alisha: Lol when people tend to ask me who I am I often panic since I am still trying to work that one out myself! I have nine tattoos and counting each one has a symbolic meaning to me. I only have my ears pierced, so no worries there!

A Veil of Enlightenment :  Good  to know! SOOO  back to your amazing series!  Imagine yourself 10 years from now. What do you hope to achieve as an author by than?

Alisha: In 10 years I would love to just grow as an author. Being a Best seller doesn’t matter to me. What matters is finding those fans that believe in you, root for you when you need it most. I hope to achieve getting more books out for people to  enjoy,  & that they connect with my books on the same deep level I do.

A Veil of Enlightenment: I think you will be able to do just that darling. Keep doing what you do best,  stay positive, & stick to your path.  Any words of wisdom for budding writers?

Alisha : Thank you I plan to and yes I do have advice. Believe in myourself,  even if you’re the only one who does. You can  only achieve success if you work for it!

A Veil of Enlightenment :  Love the optimistic attitude Alisha Cole!

Jennifer L. Roche

Jennifer L. Roche has always had a passion for reading since a very young age.  As a child she would save her allowance money to purchase books, joined summer reading clubs at the library,  and wrote and drew illustrations for her own make-believe books she created as a young girl. Even way back then Jennifer knew writing had to be part of her life! She kept journals, and filled notebooks with countless poems and stories she still has stored away to this day!

Jennifer first became published in a poetry anthology in 1995 while still in high school, due to the urging of her mother to enter a writing competition. Her poem being selected for the compilation was the start of her bond with writing.

Jennifer went on to become an outpatient therapist for the mentally ill and substance abusers after graduating college, while also minoring in English, Writing, and History.

Eventually returning to  school to procure her Master’s in Elementary Education K-8,  Jennifer taught Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, and 4th grades  before leaving the teaching world in 2013 to create her company Rainbows of Happiness LLC which she writes and shoots photography events under. She is happy to be following her dream of writing at long last .

Since establishing Rainbows of Happiness LLC and becoming a full-time  writer, Jennifer  has written for various online magazines, including monthly contributions to the house and home magazine for Espirial, Smile Magazine for Girls as their feature contributor for their friendship issue, chosen as 1 of 5 featured authors in the Writersgallery.wordpress.com  Featured Author Showcase for her biographical memoir Always In My Heart,  was selected as a featured poet and author for the Featured 4 on MuttOnline.com, received an award and recognition as a ranked reviewer for writing reviews for FanArtReview, has 2 poems  selected by poetreecreations.org for Best of Poetry on their website, published in a multi-authored compilation of poetry by the East Coast Literary Review Spring edition 2014, published short story in multi-authored book about Random Acts of Kindness titled the same name, and now is releasing Healing Ties in November 2015 on Amazon.com!  I have so many more books on the horizon! I can’t  wait to share them with you!  🙂 ♡
