Space Coast Book Lovers Featured Author Ava Wood

Our second author of the day is Ava Wood

Thanks Ava, for joining us today! We are excited to learn more about you!
Let's start with an easy question!

What genres do you write?

I write Contemporary Romance, Young Adult Contemporary, and I’m currently working on a Young Adult Sci Fi with J Laslie.
Out of all your characters who was the hardest and who was the easiest to write?

The hardest to write would probably be Missy from my Young Adult series. She went through so much during her trilogy and had to learn and grow throughout. And I think I put off finishing that series, because I didn’t want to say goodbye. After three books with her, she made a place for herself in my heart. The easiest would have to be Anna from my current WIP, Irreplaceable. I took so much of her from me that her personality and her story really flowed.

Do you tell your characters how the story is going to go or do they take over and you just listen? 
My characters definitely take over and do their own thing. In fact, I had one character who I’d planned would come in and save the day, but she ended up being downright evil. The worst part is that they want their story told at the most inopportune times, like during family gatherings or while I’m trying to go to sleep. It’s very inconvenient. LOL.
At SCBL what book will be your newest release?

I’m hoping to have Irreplaceable, a Contemporary Romance available when I attend SCBL, but currently my newest release is Remnants of Yesterday, the final book in my Young Adult trilogy.

Where is the best place for attendees to find you during the con?
 Most definitely, the best place to find me is at the book signing. I’ll actually be in one spot instead of flitting about!

Time to introduce Ava:
Ava Wood is an insomniac who writes to calm the voices. When the voices get too loud, stories are formed.

Ava was born and raised in Texas but got to Florida as quick as she could, enjoying the fresh sea air and summer storms. She believes there is nothing more beautiful than an evening summer light show.

She’s married to the love of her life whom she shares two beautiful daughters and four sweet fur babies. Their marriage is the perfect “North-meets-South” pairing.

When she’s not writing, Ava can be found chasing her children all over the county, snapping photos of any and everything, visiting one of her local theme parks, or just spending quality time with her family.

Ava is making the rounds!

Lies in Love by Ava Wood
Losing love is easy compared to what can happen when it finds you.

After the latest in a long string of heartaches, her colossal crankiness has led Talia Byrne's friends to take drastic action and hire an escort. His cocky attitude and blase demeanor have her longing to slap him - and his perfect body makes her want to tear off his clothes.

After six years as an escort, Landon Havens thinks he's see - and done - it all. But none of his experience has prepared him for the little vixen that is dropped in his lap. So sexy and stubborn, she awakens something inside of him. Something that makes him question the life he's chosen. But can their love survive their secrets?

Forgetting Yesterday (Broken by the Sea Book 1)

Missy Shaw thought she had her life planned out perfectly; do well in school, take her basketball team to state, and get a free ride to college. Her life wasn’t perfect, but it was constant. With her best friend Karley at her side, she could handle anything.

After the death of her mother, however, her dad had other plans. Moving Missy from everything she knew in Kansas to the great unknown created a new set of problems. Attending a new school, all she really wanted was to be invisible, but that simple feat proved difficult when she has a run-in with the school’s basketball star, Adam Miller, on her very first day.

Adam Miller is every girls dream; charming, sweet, and gorgeous. And for some reason he’s very interested in Missy. His attentiveness is unnerving as Missy does everything in her power to evade his interest. Living with secrets she’s not willing to share, Missy works to push Adam away in order to keep her family safe. But will keeping secrets really keep her safe?

Return to Yesterday (Broken by the Sea Book 2)

After Adam Miller walked out of Missy Shaw’s life her junior year, she thought her world had ended. With her father’s relentless drinking and Missy’s numerous empty relationships, she’s learned to live her life as a hollow shell. Never feeling seems a whole lot easier than opening herself up to the emotions that tear her apart. She’s made a comfortable life for herself, going to school, working, and spending her lonely nights in the arms of her co-worker, Marco.

Everything is going just the way she likes until graduation nears and Adam waltzes back into town on the arm of Lindsay Dumont. With a single look, all her feelings for him come flooding back and being hollow suddenly isn’t so easy. His return opens up old wounds that Missy fears may never heal. Scars she’s fought so hard to bury deep inside. When all of her old memories dangle in front of her, she’s forced to find a way to bury her feelings for Adam while holding onto what’s left of her heart.

Remnants of Yesterday (Book 3)

Missy Shaw has lived through her fair share of heartache and abuse, mostly at the hands of her own father. After finally taking a stand against her abusers, Missy is faced with a new dilemma when her father unexpectedly falls ill. Longing to take care of the man who’s never really been a father to her, she’s forced to make a difficult decision that could cause a cataclysmic collision with her past and her future.

Now that Adam Miller was a major fixture in Missy’s life, making those hard decisions shouldn’t be so difficult, but when Missy heads to Tampa for college and Adam returns to Kansas, she’s left feeling vulnerable and alone. Moving forward is harder than she imagined when the demons from her past continue to haunt her.

In this gripping finale to the Broken by the Sea trilogy, find out if Missy is finally able to find her happy ending, or if the demons of her past become the nightmares of her future.
