If you don’t know Ditter Kellen, you don’t hang out on Facebook much. She’s one of the more successful Indie Authors I know and she’s the most accessible one’s I’ve had the pleasure to interact with. She’s been highlighted on USA Today, has a popular group on FB – According to Ditter – and she’s about to release the fourth book of her successful ‘Ember’ Series.   Here’s her Amazon Bio ~~~

*

A former 911 dispatcher turned author, Ditter Kellen has been in love with romance for over twenty years. To say she’s addicted to reading is an understatement. Her ebook reader is an extension of her and holds many of her fantasies and secrets. It’s filled with dragons, shifters, vampires, ghosts and many more jaw-dropping characters who keep her entertained on a daily basis.
Ditter’s love of paranormal and outrageous imagination have conspired together to bring her where she is today…sitting in front of her computer allowing them free rein. Writing is her passion, what she was born to do. I hope you will enjoy reading her stories as much as she loves spinning them. Ditter resides in Florida with a guinea pig named Shadow. She adores French fries and her phone is permanently attached to her ear. You can contact Ditter by email: ditterthegreat@hotmail.com

(Editor’s Note — You can’t go wrong by Friending her. She also collects pictures of spiders. Yes, really, long story. )

INTERVIEW

*

Hi Ditter. Thanks for dropping by. Okay, first question —Your latest book (Ember Yearns) is the third of the Seeker Series. Is it the final chapter or will there be more?

*

There are two more books in the serial. Ember Discerns and Ember Turns. After that, I only have ideas and the occasional brainstorm. Who knows, Ember may have a sixth chapter in his story.

*

Tell us about your main character – attitude, good/bad qualities, and do they resemble you?

*

Ember Wells. AKA Ember Burns. Yes, she resembles me in so many ways. I gave her my snark, my outlook on life and my personality.

*

Would you rather be remembered for your books or your life?

*

My books, definitely. Memories fade, people die, but books are forever…unless there’s a fire.

*

When you wrote your first book, what part of the process brought you the most joy?

*

Plotting it. Mapping out a story with a twist thrown in the mix. I love keeping the reader guessing.

*

Who’s the model for your covers – he’s quite handsome?

*

He’s a male model named Christian Boeving. Sometimes I think my readers are waiting more for my cover reveal than the actual novel. He is…attractive, isn’t he? 😉

*

Do you have any tip/tips for a novelist who has writers block?

*

Yes. No matter how hard it seems, just write it out. You can always go back over it and make changes, doctor it up, add in emotion etc etc.

*

Your hatred of spiders, is this from a childhood incident or a recent development?

*

Oh, you had to bring up the spiders. *Grin* It’s been with me since childhood. I don’t understand my fear of them, I just know it’s bone deep and very real.

*

The thing you love the most about a man is his ______?

*

Energy. 🙂

*

*

That’s it for our conversation. Be sure to check out Ditter’s novels, links and stop by the Dreams, Fantasies, Nightmares, and Visions Event on June 18th – 22nd.

This story has me craving to read more. I was fully entranced by this author’s style of writing. This author has an amazing talent at storytelling and has a way with words that makes me WANT to read more of the characters. The author has a very ingenious, yet phenomenal way of leaving me hanging at the end. Now I need to go and read the second one!! I highly recommend this book to all romance lovers. Though, I must say that reader discretion is advised.

Suspense and plot twists…Ditter does it again April 16, 2014

By CARMEN L TERRONEZ  Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The second installment to the Seeker series is just as great as the first. Ember Learns picks up right where Ember Burns (The Seeker #1) leaves off in a cliff hanger. Surrounded by people who truly care for her, Ember embarks on a relationship with her sexy neighbor Angel. Though she has her suspicions about him she cannot keep away from him. All the while Ember receives shocking photos from an anonymous stalker determined to make her life hell. Then PLOT TWIST!

Ditter Kelllen has a way of keeping you on the edge of your seat and though I’m not big on cliff hangers, I have no problems waiting for the next book in The Seeker series Ember Yearns. This is a great fast paced read and you would be mistaken not to pick it up.

Stalking of the Damned? June 10, 2014

Format:Kindle Edition

Ember Yearns by Ditter Kellen is a cross-genre novella bringing the vampire theme into a crime noir setting, providing readers with the best of both worlds in this fast-paced tale. The author gives us a good dose of sexually-charged scenes for good measure, making this a story geared for mature audiences. We find cousins Ember and Shon Wells to be part of a vampire community that is being menaced by a serial killer known as the Seeker. The murderer is also victimizing humans, which brings Detective Clay Harper into the fray. Complicating matters is a copycat killer called the Watcher, galvanizing the entire vampire population into dealing with the threat.

Kellen uses contrasting themes and images to add to the suspense and intrigue of the narrative. We find the senior member of the vampire group, Gina Calimari, acting as Shon’s advocate while Angelo Dimitrov, an imposing Bulgarian, stands solidly behind Ember. Yet Ember finds herself attracted to Clay, which further compromises her loyalties inside and out of the vampire world. Her jealousy is inspired by the introduction of Gina, who turns out to be an old flame of Angelo’s. The sexual tension runs high within the community, which hits fever pitch as the threat of the serial killers looms ever closer.

EXCLUSIVE TEASER FROM EMBER DISCERNS — COMING SOON
*

Angel jerked awake an hour before he normally arose. Something was wrong. Anxiety tightened his gut, twisting, churning. He staggered from the bed with one destination in mind. Ember.

Where are you, baby girl? He began opening drawers, grabbing the first thing his fingers touched on. Dressing in jeans and a t-shirt, he bypassed his boots for running shoes. Ember was in danger; he needed all the speed he could get.

He rushed out the glass sliding door and vaulted over the balcony, not bothering to check her condo first. He knew she wasn’t there as surely as he knew a storm would arrive soon, making finding her more difficult.

Dark, angry clouds adorned the sky, with the power to nurture, yet destroy. At any other time, Angel would glory in it. Not today.

With fear blanketing him like a second skin, he began to run. If anything happened to Ember before he reached her, he’d never forgive himself.

He shot across the road, entering the woods faster than the human eye could track. Wildlife remained oblivious to his presence as he blurred through their territory undetected, becoming one with the environment. Trees and plants melded together in brilliant shades of color, creating a mosaic rainbow in his peripheral vision.

A drop of water splashed his cheek only seconds before Mother Nature unleashed her fury. Thunder boomed, lightning cracked and rain poured down in sheets of random, undisciplined drops of precipitation. He prayed his link to Ember would be stronger than the violent, atmospheric disturbance that had just swallowed him up.
