Charline Ratcliff is a newly published author who contacted me to find out if I would review her debut novel, The Curse of Nefertiti. I found the novel’s blurb to be fascinating that I sent her an email back asking if she would like to also have an author interview and author guest blog scheduled along with the book review. So today I will be posting the guest blog about how Charline came to write her debut novel and that I really had fun reading. You can also read her author interview with me as well as read my review for her debut novel, The Curse of Nefertiti. Leave comments or questions to this post because Charline will be stopping by on and off today answering them:

On the night of November 14, 2006 I had a very vivid dream which I wrote down the next morning. This dream is actually the Prologue in The Curse of Nefertiti. I have always had very vivid dreams like this…not every night but maybe once every three or four months. Now every time I have a dream which stands apart from the normal run of the mill I write it down. Consequently I have the beginning chapter or Prologue for another five books and I’m sure the number will only continue to grow. So many books to write…so little time!! A night for a dream, a day for the Prologue, a day for the first chapter, a year, a month and a week for the writer’s block and five months to finish the remainder of the book.

The Curse of Nefertiti by Charline Ratcliff $ 31.50 (383 Pages)

The Curse of NefertitiOver three thousand years ago, all of Egypt lies in ruins. The country that had dazzled the world is now completely annihilated, and the Nile runs red with the blood of her people. Nefertiti’s spirit walks the land and looks at the utter devastation she has unwittingly allowed to transpire. In desperation she cries out to the Gods, and they take pity on her. They send her forward into the future, so she may return later to correct her mistakes.

This is the story of Nefertiti, of the life she has lived here as Kayla, unaware of her true identity until finally reunited with the man who is the living reincarnation of her murdered husband, Akhenaten. She is faced with a difficult choice. Return to Egypt and save her country and its people or stay here with the man who holds her heart. And if she returns to Egypt, will she remember her life as Kayla, so she may be returned to it before her life becomes forfeit in the past?

Charline Ratcliff’s tale is woven with likeable and believable characters, powerful visceral imagery, and a tapestry of combining old with new to create a masterful novel. Her debut novel is a stunning achievement that deftly envelops the reader.

I'm a part-time aspiring romance novelist, book reviewer and blogger. I've always wanted to travel the world and learn everything I can about other countries. Learning the Italian language is one way of trying to make that dream come true. Traveling will help me with my writing because I'll be learning about the history of the U.S., Latin America, England, Italy, and Ireland, the countries I find so fascinating while reading the romance genre. I read and review romance novels of almost every subgenre along with erotic romance, mystery, sci-fi/fantasy and young adult novels. You can find the reviews at my blogs, Talk About My Favorite Authors and Phoebe Jordan's Reviews. I’ve also started a live podcast show called TAMFA | Phoebe Jordan hosted on Blog Talk Radio. This show is dedicated to everything I love about romance and young adult novels. I love having romance and young adult authors live on my show to be interviewed and showcase their books. I plan to write contemporary romance, romantic suspense, erotic romance, paranormal romance and young adult when I get my writing career started with help from Keta. I'm not sure what genre I'll write to begin with since I love to read so many different romance genres.
