BOTM - A Beautiful Torment by AuRevoirSimone

A Beautiful Torment

When Isabel Devane first locks eyes with Wyatt Blackwell in the gymnasium on her first day of high school, the moment is as insignificant to her as accidental eye contact in the hallway...

... Until dark creatures stalk her through forests, dead girls take up residence in her room, and the only person who seems to know what's going on just might be the boy who started it all in the first place.


1. Please tell the readers a bit about yourself.

I’m a twenty-one year old Irish gal and I just graduated from university this summer, so I guess I have to start calling myself an adult now, hehe. I’ve been writing since I could hold a pen but I never considered making a career out of it until recently, so I studied Music Technology in university instead with the intention of becoming a music producer when I graduated.

2. What types of books do you write?

I write mostly paranormal fiction but I’ve also dabbled in ordinary teen fiction. I’ve noticed my writing is starting to take a suspense/thriller kind of direction, so I guess I write an eclectic mix of genres. Paranormal fiction is my home, though. I’m most comfortable making stuff up.

3. How many books have you written?

I wrote a lot when I was younger but I think on a serious note, I’ve only ever written one novel that I consider ‘finished’.

4. What movie and/or book are you looking forward to this year?

I’m a huge Richelle Mead fan so I’m probably looking forward to Vampire Academy coming out in theatres. (Although that’s technically next year, hehe). Book wise, it’s a toss up between The Fiery Heart (by Richelle Mead) and The Casquette Girls by Alys Arden.

5. What type of books do you enjoy reading?

YA paranormal and fantasy mostly. When I’m feeling under the weather, I read a lot of YA romance and adult romances, but I also enjoy the occasional classic.

6. If you were stranded on a desert island, what 3 things would you want with you?

1. A boat.
2. A lifetime’s supply of chicken.
3. Jamie Redknapp hehe.

7. Are you considering a sequel?

Yes, but that’ll come when I’m finished editing the first book. As it stands, I tied it up in such a way that a sequel isn’t really something on the cards.

8. What inspired you to become a writer?

I don’t think I was ever inspired to become a writer, I just WAS a writer. It’s all I’ve ever done. If I’m bored, I just grab the nearest notepad and start jotting down ideas or quotes or paragraphs. Whenever I was upset or stressed or happy, I just wanted to write and capture that feeling.
