Guest Post with Author Hillary Seidl and Giveaway

Today I would like to welcome to the blog author Hillary Seidl. Hillary is super awesome and she is here today to talk about her love of all things paranormal. But before I give the floor to Hillary, lets get to know a bit about her.

I'm an avid reader of romance (since I could get away with it!) and a writer of contemporary/paranormal romance. I start to freak out if I don't see a paranormal or ghost hunting show in over a week.

When I was a little girl, my parents owned a restaurant that was in a haunted building. It was so amazing to see things happen right in front of me that could not be explained! The situation flamed my love for the paranormal.

When I was a teen I wrote a series of mini books. As an adult, I worked a series of jobs, I never found anything that spoke to my soul.

I will be honest... I'm a huge fan of Supernatural! Hot guys solving paranormal mysteries? I'm there! That's when I started writing fan fiction. Fan fiction is very fun but something was missing. I missed the romance! That is when I started my writing journey.

More than anything in this world I just want to write. I am married to my wonderful husband Aaron, who is a Chef in Boulder, Colorado and we have two wonderful miniature dachshunds, Leela and Fry, who are both clever as they are long.
Places to find Hillary:

First, thank you so much for having me here today! I’m a huge fan of Ramblings From This Chick!

My name is Hillary Seidl and I’m a paranormal/contemporary author. I’m obsessed with everything paranormal from Ghost Adventures to Supernatural. Yes ladies, I even went to a convention and met Jensen Ackles, Jared Padelecki and Misha Collins! Whew, that was fun!

I had a paranormal experience when I was young, a ghostly one. When there was no reasonable explanation that’s when my paranormal journey started. Ever since then The X-Files became my guide and Supernatural reached to me. That’s why I started out writing fan fiction.

When I decided that it was time for my own characters, I knew that I was going to need guidance and support. I have been a RWA member for two years and I’ve served on the board of my local chapter, Colorado Romance Writers, as secretary and now Vice President.

There are many facets of the paranormal that I find intriguing. When I had the opportunity to be a part of an anthology I wanted to start with the phenomenon of shadow people. Sia, my heroine, is tormented by these shadow figures in the beginning of my novella. She’s confused by what she sees and doesn’t understand. Enter my hero, Andrew Grant. He is much more involved and used to the world of the paranormal.

Thank you again for having me on! I would love to give a digital copy away to a lucky commenter! All my best!

Andrew Grant has less than a week to find the stone and save his brother from an evil demon. Sia Wright is being tormented by shadow figures and might be Andrew's last hope. Together they must fight and discover the true power of love.
