Guest Post by Natasha Larry author of Darwin's Children Series

I hope everyone had a Happy Christmas! I am back now the hoildays are over with a guest post from author Natasha Larry. Natasha is the author of the Dawin's Children Series.

Darwin's Children (Darwin's Children, #1)

"Life can get pretty complicated for any seventeen-year-old girl, but for a home-schooled telepathic black girl trying to survive in a prestigious private school in small-town Jonesborough, Tennessee, it can be maddening – especially when her telepathic father keeps eavesdropping on her thoughts!

Jaycie Lerner’s family isn’t the usual mom-dad-kid setup. Jaycie’s mom’s MIA, but Allison, her personal live-in ‘trainer,’ is more than a mom, with her own special abilities, like being able to lift cars and run incredibly fast. And Jaycie’s godfather John is more than persuasive – he can literally convince anyone to do anything.

As far as the rest of the world’s concerned, Jaycie’s on the outside looking in. The townsfolk love Jaycie’s pediatrician father, but she doesn’t fit in with ‘normal’ kids, and she doesn’t really want to. Most of her free time is spent training to keep her telekinetic and telepathic powers under control. But there’s one thing she can’t control – and that’s her feelings, especially when her best friend Matt is nearby. If only he knew what she was truly capable of…

Everything seems to be status quo for Jaycie until she receives a cryptic message from a stranger and meets a very unusual girl new to Jonesborough. Then all hell breaks loose."

Unnatural Law (Darwin's Children #2)

"Seventeen-year-old Jaycie Lerner’s psychokinetic power surge is over, and her astounding powers are under control for the time being – sort of. As she struggles to maintain her humanity in the face of the awesome terror and responsibility of her abilities, she also yearns for the chance at a normal life – and a relationship with Matt Carter, the best friend she had to leave behind. But Matt’s got a few tricks up his sleeve, and he’s not about to give up on his feelings for Jaycie.
As Jaycie and her family grapple with the day-to-day routine of trying to keep their world together, Jaycie’s mother figure, Allison Young, endures a personal crisis of her own. The superhuman blonde possesses the physical equivalent of Jaycie’s awesome psychic power. So evolved, at ninety-two she still looks twenty. But what good is extended life when everyone else around her is so fragile? With no one to share her unusual life, she’s a uniquely lonely woman yearning for the romantic love she sees all around her. But in a dream she gets her wish – and it quickly turns to a nightmare for everyone else in her life. The memory of a rose is all she can hold onto in the storm of obsession that nearly sweeps her away.

Things quickly turn deadly for the vampires, but the Dey-Vah Guard fairies refuse to acknowledge there’s an imbalance in the nature they protect. As the danger gets ever closer to Jaycie and her family, the race is on to find answers before a secret plot can destroy them all."

In this fun interview. One of Natasha's characters, Haylee interviews her!

Haylee Mitchelle: So, Ms.Larry - inquiring minds want to know, why does Matt Carter think he's so fabulous? I mean, sure he's cute...ish..but he isn't all that.

Natasha Larry: *laughs* Well, okay...right into it, huh? I made Matt very confident because he is an alpha male, and in nature, alpha males are very confident. As far as human females go, confidence in males is always appealing, he wouldn't be very realistic otherwise. But, I've been talking about Matt a lot lately, I would rather talk about you.

H.M: Um, why?

N.L: Well, because I find you very interesting?

H.M: Whatever...well, considering who I'm talking to...I'm an open book. I have a few questions for you about my upbringing. Not that I don't appreciate how tastefully you revealed my story to the world, but why?

N.L: Oh, trust me. I didn't want to go there. I did it because of your ability. There is no denying that these horrible things happen to young woman, every day. I can't think of anything more evil than rape or child molestation. And, because you have this incredible ability to burn evil, something truly evil had to happen to you. It was one of the hardest things I've ever written, but it also made you, in my eyes at least, the strongest female hero in the series.

H.M: Really? Stronger than Jaycie, who can do anything??

N.L: Oh, yeah. Jaycie was kind of over-privileged, and she kind of annoys me. Don't get me wrong, I love her and all, but I like you more because you have a strength that I admire and you can't be wrong.

H.M: Oh...*blushes* Whatever, dude. What do you mean, I can't be wrong?

N.L: I mean, with your ability. Jaycie can mess up, and destroy the entire planet. You, however, can't burn someone unless they are evil. Yours is the only power that I created that is neutral. For example, you can try to burn someone innocent all day, but it won't work. When you look at someone, they are either evil or they aren't.

H.M: Thanks for taking some of the pressure off, Johnson!

N.L: Who's Johnson?

H.M: Don't worry about it. Its an inside joke.

N.L: I wrote you! How do you have inside jokes that I don't get?

H.M:  I don't know, you should probably see someone about that...*sings* Awkward...Anyway. So, let's move on to my grandmother, Sylvia Nash. Is her ability a lesser version of my own?

N.L: Her ability is absolutely a lesser variation of your own.

H.M: Interesting, so have you decided that it's always that way?

N.L: Always that way?

H.M: Are you being cute right now?

N.L: Aren't I always?

H.M: Oh, you're fun. I mean the superpower thing. Have you decided that it's always genetic? I mean, Mason is a mind reader and so is Jay... although she is alot freakier.

N.L: Well, I don't think it's safe to say it's always genetic. Superpowers are determined by both genetics and your trigger event. If your trigger event is different enough from your parents, then your abilites will be.

H.M: Well, thanks for explaining it like a human being, rather than like Matt. I never understand what that kid is saying.

N.L: Sorry about that.

H.M: Its okay. We're cool. Okay, last question because I have more Alonzo tormenting to do...

N.L: Shoot.

H.M: I have to know...are we done with these faeries? Or, are you planning on bringing them back.. like full force?

N.L: Ah, are the Dey-Vah an issue for you?

H.M: They are pretty annoying...

N.L: Well, I'm sorry, kid. The Dey-Vah will be around for a while. They will take one more of a partner role, but I'm kind of fond of Lucy..

H.M: You would be...

N.L: Wow, I made you such a smart ass...

H.M: *smiles* Thanks...
