Within The Shadows by T L Mahrt / #Interview #BlogTour @rararesources @tlmahrt



Emma’s world is rocked as the real monster lurking in the shadows is unveiled. 

Emma Andrews’ last memory of her mother is seeing her bleeding to death on the bathroom floor. Several years later, Emma is kidnapped and forced to face the same monster that killed her mother. Quickly, Emma—a daydreamer with an inventive personality—must learn to separate her fantasies from reality in order to differentiate friend or foe.

As secrets unfold and the shadows emerge, Emma wonders if she can endure reliving the trauma of her past. One thing she does know for certain—she can’t do it alone.

Will Emma escape from this monster alive? Will Chance still love her after she reveals her past? Or, will someone new teach Emma the true strength hiding within her?




– When and where do you prefer to write?

I have two children, so, most of my writing gets done after they go to bed. I’m a night owl.

– Do you have a certain ritual?

I go through times that I do but I haven’t been consistent lately.

– Is there a drink of some food that keeps you company while you write?

I always have a large ice water by my side.

– What is your favourite book?

I just finished Dear Enemy … I loved it!! It’s a top fav and on my reread shelf.

– Do you consider writing a different genre in the future?

Yes, I have been working on a children’s book under a different pen name.

– Do you sometimes base your characters on people you know?

I would say a mix of personalities—never just one person.

– Do you take a notebook everywhere in order to write down ideas that pop up?

I use my IPad for everything and if I don’t have my IPad, I have all the apps on my phone for notes. Even with all that, I still have a pocket full of scrap papers with scribbles on them.

– Which genre do you not like at all?

I am not a fan of horror.
