I'm happy to have Katie Mettner here today to talk about her new release, Someone in the Water, which is a romantic suspense with a twist, as she puts it. The twist is a supernatural/paranormal element to the story in that Spring is a medium. I asked Katie a couple of questions she was kind enough to answer.
Jan: The plot of Someone in the Water is different from most books out there. Where did you get the idea from?
First, thanks for having me here, Jan! I always appreciate your, and your readers, support! To answer your question, I came up with Someone in the Water out of the blue one January day. I didn't intend for Spring to be a medium, but as always happens when I start writing, the character introduces themselves to me as much as to the reader. When Spring tells Vince, "I see dead people, so I guess being a tuba genius isn't that weird." I knew I was in for a fun story! As I kept writing I knew I had to somehow incorporate something into the story that had to with her abilities, so I chose an event that is ongoing in a city in Wisconsin. However, my twist on the reason for it is purely fictional. I take a college town, add a river and a supernatural element, and you have Someone in the Water. Spring and Vince hold a special place in my heart because of the setting of their story, the way they mesh as a couple, and the way they support each other through thick and thin. I hope it's one of those realistic yet romantic stories between two imperfect people that people love to read about.
