How could a good deed go so wrong?
Trask Sinclair enjoys his life as a famous author living in New York City. His greatest adventures come from the characters in his books. But after stepping in to protect a woman on the run—a woman with eyes that speak of hidden depth, intrigue, and loneliness—Trask is suddenly pulled into a world he never could have written.
Allys Joel sees the future when she touches someone. That’s why a Wall Street firm held her prisoner for sixteen months. Escaping with Trask’s help puts both their lives at risk. When conventional travel proves impossible, they must journey cross-country to get to the safety of the mysterious town of Mystic, Wyoming. As they fight for their lives, their freedom, and a possible budding romance, they must come face to face with the reality—and secrets—that may change their lives forever.
Is it true:
this is your first book?
Not true. Mystic is my fourteenth published book, but only the sixth under the name Gabi Stevens.
this book is part of a series?
True. This is the first of a planned series about the mysterious town of Mystic and its inhabitants.
you lost sleep while writing this book?
True. But then again, I’m a poor sleeper.
you did research for this book?
True. I spent time in a friend’s RV, which plays a role in the story. I contacted the Cheyenne Airport for information about flights, planes their airport could handle, and private jets. And I read extensively about goats, King Arthur legends, and animal communication. Try tying all those things together.
some characters in this book are not human? (pets for example)
Definitely! I don’t want to spoil anything, but creatures play a big role in this book.
this book has more than one genre?
True. It’s a little romance, a little humor, a little fantasy.
you speak more than one language?
True. In addition to English, I am fluent in Hungarian and German, and I studied Latin for many years.
you grew up where you live now?
Not true. I grew up in SoCal, went to boarding school in Colorado, college in New York, Germany, and California, and grad school in Illinois. Finally I ended up in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
you love to read?
True. I believe my day is wasted unless I have read something that day. It’s an addiction. If I run out of books, I’ve been known to read my husband’s engineering periodicals.
you are never late?
True. I am on time always. Can’t help it.
you love pizza?
Not true. While I eat pizza sometimes, I’d rather have a burger any day.
you love sushi?
True. I would eat sushi everyday if I could.
you have a pet?
True. Two dogs presently—a cockapoo and a boxer mix.
