Treasured & Tipsy Timeslip: Traveller Scott A. Lerner

Travel and make-believe go hand in hand. Whether we're in the present or the past, in a haunted castle, an enchanted forest or a broken down building, beauty is in the eye of the beholder and traveling the world can bring the imagination to life.

Please welcome this week's guest, author and attorney Scott A. Lerner. #Travel #AuthorInterview #TreasuredTipsyTimeslip #RachaelStapleton

I would love to travel to Ancient Egypt. I find their culture fascinating enough to make it a part of the Fraternity of the Soul Eater. I would love to have been around in ancient times but would settle for being there during the late 1800s through the 1920s. I could be around during the great archeological discoveries. My book takes place in modern times, but the magic from Ancient Egypt is referenced throughout. After all, the deities are not dead, only buried beneath the sands of time waiting to be called upon. 

It would also be fantastic to see the future, since I am not limited to a specific time …

Rachael's Reviews: Apostle

A Haunting Tale of Deranged Love

Apostle is about serial killer Benji and his insatiable desire to kill and "feed his inner monster." When he meets a 16-year-old drifter named Beth, he takes her under his wing, becoming her mentor, teaching her how to harness fear, dominate and kill. Apostle traces Benji and Beth's growing relationship, her want for a deeper connection and what arises from a broken heart.This book made me nostalgic for certain dark comedy's l​ike Natural Born Killers and the 1988 movie Heathers. I found myself both terrified and rooting for Benji and Beth, two serial killers on a killing spree set in Ontario in the early 1970s, specifically in the French River with reference to Sudbury. Somewhere in the middle, I began to loathe Bloody Beth just as I suspect the author Lacey Crowe had planned. ​And while I am a huge fan of mystery and perhaps even some light thriller/suspense. This book was definitely out of my wheelhouse, I wouldn't call it horr…

I live in the city now—a small city surrounded by lakes and rivers. The Ontario city I was born in was much the same, though it has grown since then and is possibly now too big for me. I’m a fan of the countryside. I’m attracted to the darkness of the bushes, the quietude. I embrace the isolation, the fir…

MJ: I’ve been to Paris many times but I’d love to go back to the Paris of 1894 which I write about in my novel. It was a marvelous and curious time. The arts flourished side by side with philosophy and a deep and powerful interest in the esoteric movement. I’d specifically to visit the artists studios and night clubs and occult library/store that I write a…
