“Since problems don’t exist in the euphoric world she envisions, my life will never measure up because it will always be problematic.”
Heather Reiner isn’t your typical teenager. With abilities reaching far beyond the norm, she’s just beginning to discover the possibilities.
Growing up different from her peers hasn’t been easy. From being ridiculed by classmates to her mother’s unwillingness to accept anything paranormal, life’s been rather difficult.
At an attempt to escape their past, her mother moves them to another state. Heather soon realizes though, you can’t run from a problem that begins inside yourself.
A guy from her new school, Barry, is captivated the first time he sees her. Determined to know her better, he soon learns her layers of complication run deep. With persistence, he chips away at her shield until each protective layer starts unveiling itself.
Heather wants a chance at an ordinary life, one where her abilities remain hidden. But secrets never stay hidden forever. They have a way of surfacing, revealing themselves when you least expect. Is normalcy obtainable, or will the mystery about herself be discovered? And if discovered, will Barry be like everyone else and turn away?
Author Interview : 

Hi guys, please welcome Kimberly Readnour to the blog!! Below I asked Kimberly some questions so I hope you enjoy her answers.

Tell us about Visions in 10 words or less.

Thrilling mystical encounters that will keep you guessing.

What research did you have to do?

I’m fortunate to have a brother-in-law who’s a policeman in the state of Missouri. For the detective work, I had to console with him.

Do you have any writing habits/quirks?

The best time for me to write is first thing in the morning with a fresh cup of coffee.  If it’s later, then I drown out the noise by putting in my ear buds and listening to mellow music

How do you plot? 

For Visions, I woke up with most of the idea in my head and just started writing. For the second book, I thought it through then wrote out a rough outline. Nothing sacred, just ideas of how I wanted the story to flow. 

What was your biggest obstacle you had to overcome when writing your book?

Time would be the biggest obstacle. Since I work full time, balancing between family and writing can be challenging. I don’t watch much television, so that helps.

Do you have a favourite writing spot?

I love to be snuggled on the couch with my laptop, drinking coffee. Have to have my coffee.

If you were a character for the day in Visions, what would you do?

Since my daughter and I envisioned John Cusack playing the role of the detective, I would become Heather’s mom. Then I could spend the day going out on a date with him.

What are you working on at the moment? 

My current WIP is the third installment to the series, Vanished. I’m also working on the edits for the second installment, Deceptions. 

What do you like to do when not writing? 

If I am not writing, then you can find me reading, baking, or cooking.

Finally, can you give us 5 facts about you. 

I love to bake and wish I owned a café.  
I love chocolate and believe it’s a basic food group.  
I have a big fluffy white cat with the prettiest blue eyes. 
I am a diehard Chicago Cub fan. 
And did I mention coffee?? I LOVE coffee!
