Then there was…him
On rare occasions, some of us, the unlucky ones, stumble upon a false veil of reality hidden deep in the depths of the one we love. For eighteen-year-old Kimber Knowl, the fall had not been a leap of faith but a carefully choreographed deception.
Then there was…her
From birth Leo Chambers is conditioned for greatness; bred from the purest of bloodlines and sole heir of his family’s Nephilim council, a race descended from the first 9 Fallen Angels. And when the day of his Awakening arrives, igniting the purity of his blood, Leo finds that there is more to live for than honor.
The bonds of friendship guided the shared attraction between Kimber and Leo into a meaningful relationship. Little could set them apart until the heinous murder of Kimber’s mother. Then, not even the love Leo provides is strong enough to rescue Kimber from tribulation. Urged by the demands placed upon him, Leo leaves Kimber the night before her mother’s memorial. But if her mother’s death carried an underlined lesson, it would be suspicion. Following her gut and vital need for Leo, she follows him halfway across the world to Egypt, where she comes face to face with what existing in Leo’s reality truly means…..DEATH!
Sarah Denier was born and raised in Saint Petersburg, Florida. From the start, Sarah was compelled to write. As a little girl, she was mesmerized by her great grandmother’s handwriting and would imitate it on any surface in sight.
At the age of seven Sarah participated in her first school writing competition and won with an essay on the use of balance in Martial Arts. Even at such an early age, Sarah recognized her talent. During her childhood she explored her talent by writing short mystery fiction. During her teenage years, she dabbled in poetry.
Throughout her academic career, Sarah’s talent was recognized by teachers urging her to pursue a life in writing. In her eyes, writing was a personal form of expression, a means of escape.
In the spring of 2009, Sarah sought to accomplish her first novel. Raising two children and working a full time job left little time for the project. Ten months later the first draft was finished. By the end of 2011, her perseverance had paid off with the completion of her first novel, KIMBER.
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
The inspiration behind this book was pretty simple. You see, I’ve been writing since I can remember but it never accrued to me that I could publish my work to the world. My soul intention for this book was for it to be accomplished and sit tucked away to one day show my kids what mom had done. And so, while sitting in the back yard, I decided to write this book. Vampires were really big at the time and Angels were growing more popular and so I thought, “What about Nephilims?” And thus the story started to unfold. The one thing I wanted most while writing it was for it to stay as original and one of a kind as possible, which isn’t easy when people insist on feeding you plots from their favorite book or TV series. But that’s pretty much it. The book was inspired by the writer deep within me as a future gift to my children but thankfully it became something I can also share with the world.
