Parallel - Claudia Lefeve

Claudia Lefeve was born and raised in the Gulf Coast border town of Brownsville, Texas; a curious place where folks see curanderas in lieu of shrinks, tortillas are served at every meal, and even gringos speak Spanish. She currently resides in Northern Virginia with her husband and two pugs.

Claudia’s short stories, featuring psychopathic teenagers and Civil War zombies, have been published in several horror anthologies. Her first horror novella, The Fury, was recently published and Parallel, is her debut YA paranormal romance novel.
Destiny has a way of catching up.

Saddled with powers she doesn't understand, Etta Fleming's world is turned upside-down the day she meets Cooper Everett, the man who transports her to an alternate reality. A reality she was meant to be a part of.

One minute, she's an orphan living at Dominion House for Girls, an institution for delinquent foster kids, then finds herself attending the exclusive Dominion Hall Academy.

Plucked from the only world she's ever known, Etta now has to deal with an aunt she never knew, a boyfriend she doesn't know, and a best friend who can't know.

PARALLEL is the first book in the Travelers Series.

Q: What will e-readers like about your book?
I had a hard time figuring out what genre Parallel fits under. Is it Sci-fi? Paranormal Romance? Strictly speculative? I'm still not sure. But what readers will like, is its unusual take on the paranormal. I haven't read to many books that deal with the concept of alternate realities, so I hope my readers will appreciate something different.

Q: Why did you go indie?
Why not? I've never been good at waiting, for one thing. While I've had several of my short stories published by small presses and it never occurred to me to go that route with my book. I find it completely satisfying to be able to publish my book on my own. I've also never been good at having others telling me what to do. I already have a full-time writing is my own. 

Q: Who are your favorite authors in your genre?
I have so many! So for now, just for today, let's go with Addison Moore, Sarra Cannon, and JL Bryan.
