About the author:
I’m 23 years-old English Literature graduate girl who writes under a male name Aidan. I liked the way the Bronte sisters wrote under masculine names and the mystery it gives to your writer identity. And it also happens that Aidan is made with my true name spelled backwards. I like to write about the paranormal hiding in plain sight and in true settings. I also like taking old myths and twisting them to make a new story.
What inspired you to write your book?
When I worked in the UK everyday I saw this beautiful and mysterious building in town, the Guildhall. Then this story and characters popped into my head and wouldn’t let go until I wrote it down.
Here is a short sample from the book:
He stood there, so carelessly handsome, his hands in his pockets, I felt the air thicken between us.
“The unscheduled seems to happen a lot more lately.”
His amber eyes narrowed down on me and my face was on fire. My legs giving in.
He stepped closer. His beautiful mouth was distracting me. The bizarre and stupendous angles of his face disrupting me. The light swagger and posh attitude electrifying me.
I leaned into the inevitable pull. He cupped my face. He could be so tender/cold, switching the attraction on and off, it made me go crazy. Raw. Shy yet bold.
My lips instantaneously parted under the hard pressure of his mouth.
It was only a rollercoaster of sensations.
It stopped almost as soon as it had started, leaving me scorched and robbed of any argument.
“Gioia, I will see you at ten in the gallery.”
His hand brushed against my neck, in a final, lingering gesture.
