An Interview with Aris Whittier (+ Giveaway)

After yesterday's review of Across Eternity (click here to read it), which I obviously loved, I'm honored to welcome Aris Whittier on the blog.  She was kind enough to answer a couple of questions & sponsor a giveaway for all my readers!

Across Eternity book cvoer

     Born a genius; education, wealth, and prestige came easy to Logan Richards. Actually, there wasn’t much that Logan couldn’t learn or acquire. However, he knew there was more to life than money and power. Logan was determined to find the woman who he'd dreamed of his entire life and know what it was like to love her before he died.
     Amber Lewis, a waitress for a five-star restaurant in, Dana Point, California, was overworked, stressed, and wary of life since her sister, Heather, had passed away. Then, one evening while working she fell hopelessly in love with Logan Richards, a chivalrous man who felt deeply familiar. 
     For Amber, it was the beginning of a voyage of self-discovery and renewal. For Logan, it was the completion of life. For each of them it was the deepest sort of love.


Aris Whittier is a romance writer. She writes suspense, contemporary, and commercial woman's fiction. Her debut novel, Fatal Embrace is a romantic suspense that was featured in Cosmopolitan Magazine as a Red-Hot Read. Foolish Notions is a contemporary romance that has just a touch a mystery too. Across Eternity is a beautiful love story that transcends time. Visit Aris Whittier at:


1. Sum up Across Eternity in one sentence. 

Across Eternity is a beautiful love story that tells of love that transcends time.

2. What or who inspired you to write Across Eternity? I thought that your concept was pretty great. 

Thank you, Alexa that’s very kind of you. Believe it or not Across Eternity was inspired by a dream! I dreamt the entire book one night and when I work—at about 3 in the morning—I went to me office and immediately began writing—I didn’t want to forget it!

3. When did you start writing? What made you want to sit down and tell a story? 

I never aspired to be a writer. However, I’ve always loved to read and write. Growing up, I would read anything from Readers Digest to Stephen King. When I was younger, I used to love to tell stories…my mom called them lies…but I considered it creative story telling… LOL. When I was 16 I picked up my first romance book (Once and Always by Judith McNaught) and I fell in love with the genre. When I was in college I wrote my first romance novel and it was then that I knew I wanted to be a writer.

4. What's next for you when it comes to writing? 

I’m just finishing up Secrets. Secrets is a romantic suspense, whose heroine, Ashley Dawson, is a crime writer who has the ability to see spirits. Its hero, Nathaniel Marshall is a hardnosed architect with a long, dark past. A tight web of doubt, uncertainty, and affection is weaved when Nathaniel’s dead wife comes to Ashley in a vision. Throw a stalker turned serial killer in the mix and a crazy cat named Voodoo and the pages keep turning.

5. Since November is Thanksgiving month, what are a few things you're thankful for? 

I’m thankful for so much, but most importantly my family and friends and our health….everything else is just gravy!

Thank you so much Aris for visiting my blog and being my first ever author interview!
