Author Interview & Giveaway: The Line Between Here and Gone by Andrea Kane

http://booktrib.com
Today I welcome Andrea Kane, author of The Line Between Here and Gone, which is her newest thriller and is currently touring with BookTrib.  I have a great Q&A with her and also a giveaway of The Line Between Here and Gone.  You can check out the full schedule here.  Make sure to visit the other sites to read excerpts, other author interviews, reviews and giveaways.  And stay tuned later today for my review.

1.      Which author inspires you most?
It depends on when you catch me. There are so many talented authors, each mastering an element. I go back as far as Carolyn Keane, when I first started reading mystery novels as a kid.  I was a big mystery reader, so later it was Agatha Christie and on to Robert Ludlum.  Now I read all genres, and my most memorable ones are the ones that are character based.

2.      What, do you feel, is your biggest success?  
From a professional standpoint, hitting the NY Times Bestseller list and hearing from my readers about how I’ve impacted their lives. But on a personal note, being a mother is the most rewarding role I fill.

3.      What are you in relation to your siblings? Are you the middle child? The baby of the family?  
I’m the baby of the family.  Establishing my own identity was the challenging part, but being referred to as “baby” when you’re an adult has its perks!


4.      Describe your latest book in 15 words or fewer.  
A mother is desperately searching for the father of her newborn baby – hoping that he’s alive and is a donor match to save her critically ill son.


5.      What inspired you to write THE LINE BETWEEN HERE AND GONE?  
As with all my books, THE LINE, started out as flashes of the characters' lives playing out in my head. I saw a flash of an important male character who vanished without a trace and a critically ill infant whose life was integrally tied to his.  But I didn't know why or how that would factor into FI's caseload.  Those answers came later, after the baby’s mother crystallized in my mind.

About The Line Between Here and Gone:
Each day is a struggle for Amanda Gleason’s newborn son as he battles a rare immune deficiency. Justin’s best chance for a cure lies with his father, who was brutally murdered before Amanda even realized she carried his child. Or was he?

One emailed photo changes everything, planting a seed of doubt that Amanda latches onto for dear life: a recent photo of a man who looks exactly like Paul. Could Justin’s father be alive? The mother in her is desperate to find out. But tracking down a ghost when every second counts is not for amateurs.

Forensic Instincts is the one team up for the challenge.
The manhunt is on for the elusive father. Yet the further the team digs into Paul’s past, the more questions are raised about whether the man Amanda fell in love with ever really existed at all.
Dark secrets. Carefully crafted lies. From the Congressional halls of Washington D.C. to exclusive Hamptons manors, there are ruthless people who would stop at nothing to make Forensic Instincts forget about the man Amanda desperately needs to find.

Little do they realize that once Forensic Instincts takes the case, nothing will stop them from uncovering the shocking truth that transcends THE LINE BETWEEN HERE AND GONE.

Interesting mystery! I wonder if Paul is really alive or how is it possible someone can look so much like another. I like the forensic aspect in the story.
