Is precognition a prescription for happiness or disaster?

The good things in life are coming together for Kristina Collins. She’s found her ideal home, her career is on track for mega success and the man of her dreams has finally come back into her life.

In Fate, the first installment of the Timeless Trilogy, Kris Collins discovers the benefits and risks of having precognitive visions while being stalked by a serial killer. Her friends can’t help her, the FBI can’t save her; she must save herself.

The Timeless Trilogy heroines, Kristina, Veronica and Cassandra, each deal with paranormal abilities as they discover and rediscover eternal love.

Bio: An aficionado of anything paranormal, Tallulah Grace pens romantic suspense novels with a paranormal flair. Tallulah was born and raised in a small southern town located in the foothills of the vibrant Blue Ridge Mountains. When she's not developing characters and weaving stories, Tallulah enjoys reading and bead-weaving.

Kris bolted straight up in bed, sweat streaming down her arms and face. Her breathing was fast and shallow, as if she had been running for her life. The pink of early dawn peeked through the crack in the curtain as she struggled to regain control. She was home. She was safe.

The dream that had plagued her for weeks now was becoming more and more clear. The man chasing her was still in shadow, but scenes from the movie rolling in front of her were etched in her mind. The flames were everywhere; she could see Roni screaming and Cassie fall to the floor. Her mother and father were both fighting the fiery onslaught, beating back the flames with some kind of fabric, though they had been dead for years. 

The faces and the surroundings were in sepia tone, but the inferno was blue and red. The horror on the screen was bad enough, but Kris knew that the worst part of the nightmare had yet to catch up with her. Icy fingers scraped her spine as she ran as hard as she could. No matter how fast her feet flew, she knew that it was only a matter of seconds before he caught up with her.

Interview with Tallulah Grace

What will readers like about your book? 
The characters. Kris, Roni and Cassie come to life in Fate, along with one (maybe two) love interests. The relationships continue to develop in the next two installments, Spellbound and Destiny. From the connection between the three heroines to the love each one discovers as the stories unfold, I believe that readers will enjoy a rapport with the women and the men who love them.

Why did you self publish? 
Access and control. I control the content and price of my books. I love the fact that readers, myself included, can find interesting and entertaining books in an electronic format at a fraction of the hardback costs.

What is your writing process? 
I'd love to tell you that I'm organized with a story/character board, but that's not how I do it. I have an initial inkling of the main characters, then I just start writing. The story evolves, pretty much in order. I may change or rearrange during the editing process or even during the first draft, but the basic story unfolds as the characters develop.

How long does it take you to write your first draft? 
Around six weeks, if I focus on writing at least 1000 words after work each day. Finishing a first draft in this amount of time also requires writing most of every Saturday and Sunday.

What inspired you to write this particular story? 
It wasn’t so much inspiration as necessity. I’ve known for years that there was at least one book rattling around inside my soul, but there was never time to write it. Turns out, there’s more than one. Developing the characters and adapting the story line is truly an organic thing. Quite often, I never knew what was going to happen until I started writing it. If I tell you that the characters told me who they were, you’ll probably think I’m crazy, but that’s exactly what happened.
