Please Welcome Author Breigh Forstner Author of Straight from the Heart

Please share a little about yourself, your genres, any other pen names you use.

I’m from and currently live in a border town in Southeast Michigan.  I also work full-time as a Customs Broker but at night that’s when all of my writing comes out! My genres I write are mainly YA Romance, Contemporary. I would love to write fantasy at some point.

Tell us a little about your latest or upcoming release.

My upcoming release is From My Heart, the sequel to “Straight from the Heart.” It continues right where book one left off, and introduces some new characters, along with the same characters from book one.

Are you a mom?

Yes I am! I have two beautiful little girls who are almost 4 and 2 ½. They keep me extremely busy.

If yes do you find it hard to juggle writing and parenting?

For sure, it is very difficult at times. I’ve had to put videos on for the kids on one side of my laptop screen while I’m writing on the other side. Sometimes there was succes, other nights not so much.

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

Not as of yet! I’ve had a lot of people ask me if Straight from the Heart is based on my real life and I said no! I wish I could tour with a bunch of hot rockstars :)

Which romance book or series (or other genre, if you don’t write romance) do you wish you had written?

Anything by Jessica Sorensen. I love all of her books especially the Coincidence series with Callie and Kayden.

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

I’d like to try fantasy or maybe horror. I used to love horror movies and there’s so much you can do with the genre so if I ever had the chance to write a horror novel I would.

If this book is part of a series…what is the next book?

Any details you can share?

The next book is “From My Heart” releasing November 24th of this year. I’m hosing a release weekend for the release of it. It was basically continue with Bryn and Cale’s story (With Cale’s POV included in this one.)

Book Description:

This is a story about a girl discovering and experiencing life for the first time.

Bryn Schaefler grew up rich. Her parents expected the best out of her, picked her boyfriend for her, and groomed her to be the next trophy wife fresh out of High School.

But when they discover she wants to pursue music instead of following in her mothers footsteps, they wanted to hear nothing about it.
That was when Bryn left for good.

By chance, she auditioned for main stream rock band Everlasting. Never in a million years did she think she would make it.

Cale Pelton knew it was his fault for the band scrambling around to find a new guitarist. Once he saw Bryn audition, he knew he had to have her. Not just in the band, but in his mind, body and soul.

Passing the bus for Ignite the Flames, I saw someone leaning against the door of the bus, smoking a cigarette, aiming the smoke in my direction.

“First show?” The guy asked, taking one last puff of his cigarette and throwing it onto the pavement. He was good looking to say the least. It was like I was staring at Jax Teller from Sons of Anarchy in the flesh, minus the whole biker jacket thing going on. Wow, I could hardly contain myself. Down girl…you have a show to play.

Turning towards him, I put my hands on my hips. “How’d you guess?” I asked, cocking one hip to the side. I was showing a little too much leg, but I knew that’s how a lot of girls dressed when on stage. I figured I might as well follow suit.

Jax look-a-like smirked and gestured toward my outfit. “It was easy, love. The outfit for starters, the way you carry yourself, like you’re a stuck up pageant queen or some shit.”

I gave him an indignant look. “Do you get all of the girls like that, saying they’re stuck up pageant queens?”

“Of course,” he winked, taking steps towards me and outstretched his hand. “Damon Charming, Ignite the Flames.”

I took his hand, shaking it with a tight grip. His grey eyes were shooting laser beams into my system and all of a sudden, I felt throbbing between my legs. I knew what that meant. I wasn’t that inexperienced, despite being a virgin. His eyes met mine and I smiled in return. “Bryn Schaefler, Everlasting.”

“Bryn Schaefler huh?” He pulled out another cigarette and lit it up right in front of me. “I heard about you. New lead guitarist. Cale seems to think you’re a frickin’ prodigy or something.”

Cale really said that about me. He must have been bragging to the world that he nailed me, not literally. I shrugged my bare shoulders. “Yeah I guess I’m pretty good.”

He took another puff and handed the butt over to me. I shook my head and he placed it back into the side of his mouth so he could talk. “Well, pretty good gets you nowhere, darling. You’ve got to shred those notes like fuckin’ butter. Move those fingers like you’re screwing the guitar bare back.” I stood there with my mouth gaped open. I didn’t know how to react to that. Sure he was pretty damn gorgeous, but I’ve never been around someone who swore so much to my face. Showed how much I got around. “But good luck. I’ll be watching you.” He winked again, and I mouthed “bye”, looking back a couple of times his way before finally making my way inside the venue.
