INTERVIEW

*

Hi Viv.  Let’s start you out with a softball question.  What made you become a writer?

*

It’s something I’ve always wanted to do. I loved reading at an early age so that just came naturally.

*

Do you like listening to different kinds of music while you write or one genre in particular?

*

No. I like it quiet when I’m writing.

*

You’re also a blogger and you do plenty of sharing as well. What makes you feel good about helping others?

*

Yes, I do a lot of sharing. I’ve always liked to help people and if I can help a fellow author that makes me feel real good.

*

You’ve released Owl of the Sipan Lord and The Angler and the Owl. Do you have a new novel in the works?

*

Yes. It’s The Midnight Owl and it’s a paranormal murder mystery.

*

Owls are a secondary character in your books. Have you always liked them, or is it a recent thing?

*

I’ve loved them as far back as I can remember. My favorite is the barn owl because its faceplate looks like a heart.

*

What’s one thing that’s helped you to become the driven women you are?

*

Desire. I want to succeed and I’m not the kind of person who starts something and doesn’t finish it.

*

You’re invited to dinner with any author, celebrity, or politician you want. Who would it be?

*

That’s a hard one. There are too many to just pick one. Author: Stephen King. Celebrity: Jeremy Wade. I can’t say I’d want to meet a politician, though.

*

*

That’s it. Thanks for reading and please be sure to check out her three books on Amazon.

THE ANGLER AND THE OWL

*

SYNOPSIS

*

For 25 years France Hunter has been studying owls, and has discovered five new species around the world. Her work has kept her busy and she never had time for a relationship. She travels with Jason “Doc” Bradley, a former paramedic, and his cousins Tony and Andy Bradley. Now, on her last outing she is joined by a magazine writer, Cathy Birch, and a world famous angler, John Sinclair, who has also dedicated his life to his field.
As the small caravan travels to the Amazon river France falls and severely injures her left arm. Against Doc’s recommendation to turn back, she pushes on. This is her last trip and she wants to go to the place where she found her first new owl.
Once the caravan arrives by the water they are met by seven boatmen, hired by Sinclair, and their canoes. Here they continue on the river dropping France’s group at her location, and Sinclair continuing for two days to the area he wants to fish for his TV show.
John is immediately attracted to France, but all she notices is how handsome he is, not feeling anything else. It isn’t until later she discovers she has feeling for John.
After landing in his spot he can’t help but feel something is wrong with France’s group. His good friend Mark Ward tells him it’s just love talking and he’s sure they’re alright. John doesn’t buy it but they plan on fishing the next morning.
While fishing a blue-ringed owl lands on John’s canoe and looks down the river to where France’s group is, and then looks back at him. This alerts John. He gets the satellite phone and tries to reach her to no avail. He decides the fishing can wait and, with Mark in another canoe, begin the journey back to France.
At France’s camp two jaguars attack one of the boatmen severing his left leg. The other two boatmen, they all have rifles, shoot at the jaguars killing one. The other escapes with the boatman’s leg. Doc and the others wake to the noise and he and Tony go to where the boatmen are camping. In the ruckus the canoes become untied and go eastward down the shore and the sat phone is destroyed. Now they have no way to get help and will have to wait for John’s team to come back, which could take three or four more days.
Doc dresses the boatman’s leg and they bring him to their area. Safety in numbers. Doc’s supply of penicillin and IV dextrose is limited and he doesn’t think the boatman will make it if they can’t get help quickly. Only a two day supply.
As John and Mark head east the water carries them quickly. The get a distance from France’s group and hear gun shots. This makes John paddle faster convinced he was right about something being wrong.
John sees the lanterns and runs toward them; Mark follows quickly behind. The learn about the attack and Mark uses his satellite phone to call for help.
Will help get there in enough time?

A great adventure story April 4, 2014 By P.M. Thomas

 
A charming effective mixture of wild life and adventure that works to tell a page turning story that showcases the authors love for nature, especially owls. A great tale which reminds me of the underrated 1984 Phillppe Mora movie starring Rutger Hauer, Powers Boothe and Kathleen Turner “A Breed Apart.” If you love adventure, nature and owls, you should check out this book, The Angler and the Owl by Viv Drewa.

Bad Dreams, Evil Spirits, and Romance May 16, 2014 By J.D.Tucker

My Review of Viv Drewa’s – Owl of the Sipan Lord.

Clare, an archeologist who lost her husband in a freak accident at a dig site, has a strange dream that compels her to go back to Peru. After the death of a professor, she and a ragtag band of associates fly to the place in her vision and discover the spirits of the bloodthirsty Moche – a Peruvian tribe similar to the Mayans in that they had human sacrifices – want the expedition to stop.

The Owl of the Sipan Lord is a quirky ghost story wrapped around a mystery and a sweet romance. It is a bit raw around the edges, but nothing that will stop you from enjoying this from start to finish. I give it Four Stars.

Moving piece of work! April 26, 2014 By Eva Bielby

An excellent and moving piece of work by the author. Well-written piece about the author’s grandfather and his escape from occupied Poland in the early 1900’s. I look forward to more work by this author!
