And Introducing...Ruth Silver

Today on Words Escape Me I am please to have Ruth Silver, the author of Aberrant, stop by and answer a few questions.

1. How long have you been writing.

I started writing when I was in high school. Mostly it was poetry in my spare time. It was my freshman year of college where I really took to writing, spending a lot of my free time drafting stories and writing fan fiction with friends online.

2. If you could have a super hero power, what would it be?
I'm not sure that this would be a super power, per say but I'd love to be able to teleport. I wouldn't need a machine, I could just think of where I'd want to go and travel there without any complications (flight delays, traffic, etc). I have family in another state and I'd love to be able to visit them in an instant and still be able to come home and play with my dog before bed.

3.If Aberrant was ever made into a movie, who would you cast in the lead roles?

Tough question! When I wrote Aberrant, I didn't have specific actors in mind. I had to do a little searching online. Olivia was easier to decide who she would be played by, Elle Fanning. She has the physical traits as well as the acting chops to pull it off. For Joshua, I had a little more difficulty deciding. There were a few actors I could see playing Joshua. However, with Elle being a little younger for the role (and presumably would grow into the role), I'd cast Dylan Sprayberry alongside of her.

Abarrant reached the top 100 in Kindle sales within the first 48 hours of publication. Way to go Ruth!

You can find Abarrant on Amazon, or visit Ruth's blog, Write Away Bliss.

Here is a little about the book~

In the future Dystopian society of Cabal, the government instills equality for all and offers its citizens the perfect system. There is food, shelter and jobs for everyone. The one requirement is to follow the rules without question, including the government's match in marriage and "The Day of the Chosen", a lottery that randomly selects families to conceive children as natural means hasn't existed in generations. Following her eighteenth birthday, Olivia Parker accepts her requirement to marry her childhood best friend, Joshua Warren, and is eager to start her work assignment and new life when it all comes abruptly to an end as she's arrested and thrown in prison. The only crime committed, her existence. Olivia is unlike the rest of the world born not from "The Day of the Chosen." The truth haunts the government and puts her life in grave danger as one simple fact would destroy the perfect system.

With Joshua's help, Olivia breaks free of prison and is forced on the run. Together they set out to find the promised rebel town in search of a new home and new life together. Their situation seems less than promising as they reach the town of Haven. New rules and customs must be adhered to in order to stay. Leaving would mean most certain death in the large expanse of the Gravelands. Time is running out as the government mounts an attack to destroy Olivia and bury her secret with her. Thrown into a world unlike their own, they must quickly adapt to survive.
