I interview author Ines Bautista-Yao in today's author spotlight.

Bautista Yao emerges at the end of Only A Kiss as an expert storyteller. Her prose is simple and grammatically correct (worth noting, especially for an indie author)...

Story
Tagline
When a mysterious artifact proves to be the key to a doppelganger earth, archaeologist Molly McBride is swept into a world of conspiracy proving deadly for both planets.
Introduction

Elise Abram has been writing ever since she can remember, but it wasn’t until she was asked to teach Writer’s Craft in 2001 that she began to write seriously. Having to research writing and the writing process gave her the confidence she needed to actually put proverbial pen to paper. Her first novel, THE GUARDIAN was partially published as a Twitter novel a few summers back. Nearly ten years after PHASE SHIFT’s inception Elise Abram decided to publish the manuscript on her own.

In her novels, Elise Abram marries two of her passions, writing and archaeology, while paying tribute to the city in which she grew up. Born and raised in Toronto, Elise Abram’s novels take place on sites modelled after actual archaeological sites in and around the city. Her characters volunteer at the Royal Ontario Museum and teach at the University of Toronto, and mummies are X-rayed and CT-scanned at downtown hospitals.

Elise Abram continues to write, no easy task, given the demands of teaching three English courses each semester, and raising three teenagers simultaneously. Currently, she is working on another Molly McBride adventure, tentatively called THE NEXT COMING RACE, and inspired by Edward Bullwer-Lytton’s classic “The Coming Race”, which melds pseudo-scienceand paranormal phenomenon in a race to save the world after a device left behind by aliens in the future is activated. Also in the works is THE REVENANT, a take on the current young adult vampire craze, I AM, HAVE BEEN, AND WILL BE ALICE, a time travel coming of age story, and CHICKEN OR EGG: A LOVE STORY, revolving around a time travel love triangle.

PHASE SHIFT is available at on the Amazon and KoboBooks web sites.
