Interview and Giveaway Dancing with a Dead Horse by Danielle DeVor

Tell us a little about your latest or upcoming release.

Dancing with a Dead Horse is about a young man, Jason, who is dealing with the problem that his mother wants him to be a ballet dancer like she was. He wants to be a Mixed Martial Arts fighter. Suddenly, when he finds the body of the most popular girl in school, his world is turned upside down. Especially when it appears that the killer is targeting him in a most unusual way.

Have you ever based your book or characters on actual events or people from your own life?

Yes. In Sorrow’s Point, when Tabby’s car has a man defecate in front of her car, that actually happened to my parents and some family friends who were with them on a vacation.

What would your readers be surprised to learn about you?

That I hate to get my picture taken. I very begrudgingly did my author’s photo. If it had been up to me, I probably would have used a picture of me as a kid in a Batman T-shirt. LOL.

Which book or series do you wish you had written?

I really wish I had written The Strain series by Guillermo de Toro and Chuck Hogan. Simply amazing series of books.

Is there a genre(s) that you’d like to write that you haven’t tackled yet?

Historical Fiction. I have an idea about some things that occurred in the coal fields of WV pre-1920.

What is in your to read pile?

I have a lot of Science Fiction in my to-read pile. My next project is going to be an odd sci-fi novel- which I’ve never written before, so this should be interesting. I will probably start out with Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep by Philip K. Dick. It is the book that inspired the movie Bladerunner.

Sometimes lullabies aren’t soothing; they’re deadly.

Sixteen-year-old, Jason Miller, wants three things: to become a professional Mixed Martial Arts fighter, graduate from high school, and avoid his mother’s ballet classes.

When he finds the body of the most popular girl in school, he has a major freak-out session, and then calls 911. But if finding a body wasn’t bad enough, when a horse doll made of human skin and hair is found in his locker, the entire town accuses Jason of the murder.

As the body count rises, so does the hostility. Jason is left with a choice: To run and hide or to clear his name and find out why the killer is targeting him before it’s too late.
