Book Description:

After-life just got a lot more complicated

Maggie is a Soul Collector. It's her job to transport souls from the Living Realm to the After - but during a mission to find a stolen soul, she ends up stuck in a teen mean girl's body.

Trapped, Maggie's soul is catapulted into Ally's life - and the human world she hasn't experienced for one hundred years. But, as a descendant of the most powerful beings in the After, Maggie must rescue Ally before the girl's soul dies…

To survive, Maggie must uncover devastating secrets - because with one soul taken by a terrifying enemy, Maggie's could be next!

Author Interview:

The Avid Reader: What inspired you to write Soul Taken?

Katlyn Duncan: The idea slammed into me one day when I was walking into my local CVS. The question popped up first, “What would happen if a reaper was collecting a soul and instead, ended up inside of the body?” Then the story transformed from there.

The Avid Reader: When or at what age did you know you wanted to be a writer?

Katlyn Duncan: It wasn’t a conscious choice, I just wrote because I loved to explore new places and characters that came to me. But, a few years ago I started becoming serious about my writing.

The Avid Reader: What is the earliest age you remember reading your first book?

Katlyn Duncan: I remember going to the library when I was a kid and taking out as many picture books as I could. So probably around five or six years old.

The Avid Reader: What genre of books do you enjoy reading?

Katlyn Duncan: I love paranormal reads whether they are YA or adult. Recently I’ve started reading more romance and contemporary but I always love a good paranormal.

The Avid Reader: What is your favorite book?

Katlyn Duncan: Hands down, The Giver by Lois Lowry. I think I’ve read that book seven times since sixth grade. Love. It.

The Avid Reader: You know I think we all have a favorite author. Who is your favorite author and why?

Katlyn Duncan: Since I love paranormal, I have to say Kelley Armstrong. Her Women of the Otherworld series changed my life (Clay…swoon).

The Avid Reader: If you could travel back in time here on earth to any place or time. Where would you go and why?

Katlyn Duncan: Probably to the 1800s. The time seemed so romantic and the outfits of the time are amazing. I’d like to experience it for myself.

The Avid Reader: When writing a book do you find that writing comes easy for you or is it a difficult task?

Katlyn Duncan: It depends on what I am writing. When I am not on deadline it comes easy, but when a deadline looms I find myself distracted doing things that I wouldn’t normally want to do…like clean the house.

The Avid Reader: Do you have any little fuzzy friends? Like a dog or a cat? Or any pets?

Katlyn Duncan: I have a 5 year old Wheaten Terrier and I love her to bits, even though the nickname Wheaten Terror is not too far off. She is insane.

The Avid Reader: What is your "to die for", favorite food/foods to eat?

Katlyn Duncan: Cheesecake. I am a cheesecake snob actually. And I wish I could eat it everyday for every meal.

The Avid Reader: Do you have any advice for anyone that would like to be an author?

Katlyn Duncan: Read and write a lot. Practice makes perfect. Your first MS probably won’t sell but how many people can honestly say they’ve written a book? Even if it lives in your desk drawer for the rest of your life, that is an accomplishment.

Debut author for the YA Paranormal trilogy, The Life After. I am represented by Carina UK. I love to read, write, cook, and snuggle with my Wheaten Terrier as much as I can. I'm a huge fan of any book that strikes my fancy and I am always looking for recommendations!
