INTERVIEW with A.P. Aruna….

MBA&M: Nice to meet you,  Ms. Aruna, welcome to My Book Addiction and More.  Can you please tell our readers a bit about yourself?

I’m a Cambodian woman of mixed blood, married to an aspiring author, and of course he had something to do with my idea to write entertaining fiction. We live in a little green house in the countryside in southern Cambodia. No kids yet, but we’re working on it.

MBA&M: What was your inspiration for writing a Dark Erotic Thriller, set in a psychiatric hospital?

I read a book, The CIA’s Control of Candy Jones, by Donald Bain, and I thought this would make a good novel. Candy was a famous model in the 1940’s, a popular pinup girl second only to Betty Grable. She later ran a modeling agency and married a radio talk show host who soon began to notice that at times she seemed to be a totally different person. Through many sessions of hypnosis it was discovered that she had been a hypno-programmed spy who went on missions under an alter-ego called Arlene Grant. In other words she was a real life Manchurian Candidate.

MBA&M: How much research was entailed in writing a story about a “sensual maze of mind control and torture”?

Quite a bit, and I’m still not finished. The first book I read was by John Marks, The Search for the Manchurian Candidate: The CIA & Mind Control and I was becoming more convinced that all this stuff was real, I learned that these mind control experiments were being done in reputable hospitals by doctors and psychiatrists who were getting money from the CIA. Then I read Journey into Madness by Gordon Thomas which contained graphic descriptions of what they did to these poor souls. That’s where I got the idea of patients wearing helmets 24/7 with a tape playing the same message over and over again – it was actually true! Also, there are a lot of books out there by people who claim to have been victims of these experiments. Hallucinatory drugs, electroshock, and prolonged isolation in a dark room – these were some of the methods the hospitals used.

MBA&M: Who was your favorite character and why?

I got the most enjoyment writing Anisa, a real kick-ass b***h, a cold, calculating, and dangerous woman who outsmarts her adversaries and who is able to deal with any situation.

MBA&M: How did you decide the different personalities?

The CIA was looking for a perfect spy, one who would not reveal sensitive information, and who could perform nefarious tasks without remembering what they did, and that was the role assigned to Anisa. Cherry Cummins was the sex bait, a Mata Hari type who could be used to access Anisa’s targets, or trap powerful men into compromising situations for purposes of blackmail. Katrina, the main personality, is shy and introverted, almost boring; someone who could never be expected to behave out of the ordinary. And while she’s totally unaware she is leading alternate lives, these other characters are aspects of her own personality, although of course over-inflated. I think that most women (and men) have urges, from time to time, of doing something wild and exciting, something outside of the humdrum of daily living. So, one could describe Katrina as a female Walter Mitty.

MBA&M: When not writing, what do you do to relax?

We live on a large patch of land where we planted many trees and flowers, and I love tending to them, watering, weeding, and giving them food (mostly bat shit!). It’s quite meditative for me.

MBA&M: What are your immediate plans for the future, in terms of writing?

I’m working on Book 2, Healing, which will not be as light as Book 1, since I want to communicate something of the horrors of what really happened to those unfortunate victims who suffered from the mind control experiments. Yet, the story will bring some closure in a positive way and have a happy ending.

 

Thank you, S.P. Aruna, for stopping by today! We wish you the very best!

The Dark Seduction of Miss Jane by Amanda McIntyre

 





The Dark Seduction Of Miss Jane

By Amanda McIntyre

Blurb:

A scandalous betrayal sets Miss Jane Goodwin on an unexpected journey to London to pursue her dream of being the first female investigative journalist, but she soon finds herself in a hotbed of murder and controversy. Seduced by the passions of a mysterious lover and stalked by a madman, tensions mount as Jane falls prey to her desires, only to discover a deadly secret that threatens more than just her trust in men.

Inspector Randolph Mansfield is one of Scotland Yard’s elite, battling the dark secrets of his past while trying to solve a rash of grisly murders threatening to mar Queen Victoria’s Jubilee. His respite is the anonymity he finds in the decadence of a private gentleman’s club, until a determined American journalist goes undercover in search of her stalker and he finds the lines between protection and passion blurred. But as tensions heat and her life is threatened, he must choose whether to reveal his true identity at the risk of losing her trust and his career.

 Excerpt:

 

My parents believed that women should be independent and
capable. What is your thinking along those lines, Mr. Hampton?” she asked,
purposely goading him.
He emitted a long-suffering sigh. “I do find a capable woman
refreshing, Miss Goodwin. I have no qualms with a woman who wishes to be
independent and, moreover, isn’t afraid to speak her mind.”
She slid him a glance. “Indeed, I think your aunt is
correct. You are a charmer.”
He shrugged. “A woman can profess to be independent in many
things, but there are still times when a man’s involvement is necessary.”
“That is quite enough, Wesley Hampton,” his aunt spoke.
“Name one,” Jane fired back as she crossed her arms.
“Jane!” Isabella turned in her chair and pinned Jane with a
shocked expression.
Wesley’s mouth curled into a wicked smile. He lifted his
brow and set down his cup. “A conversation left to another day
