From The Shadows Interview

Moon Warp

EJ: When did you begin writing?

Tina M. Randolph: I began writing when I was a teenager in high school. I wrote lyrical songs, and actually began a book series for children about my childhood, which I have yet to complete. 

EJ: What brought you to the paranormal genre?

Tina M. Randolph: I am compelled to write about the paranormal, because of my psychic and astral traveling abilities that I’ve had since childhood. I’ve learned so many new theories about the universe, and what a human being is capable of, that I just had to share it with the world as fiction.

EJ: If you could be any paranormal or have any one supernatural talent, what would it be? Why?

Tina M. Randolph: I love the ability of astral traveling, and I don’t think I can live without it. I am able to see things from many perspectives, and this helps me understand my existence, and what to look forward to in the afterlife.

EJ: Tell us why readers will enjoy your new release.

Tina M. Randolph: The Jealousy Garden introduces a love triangle that spirals out of control. It is the powerful fragrances in the garden that heighten the senses of Faith Alexander, who is in love with Vance Carter. Her affection is reciprocated, but Vance is supposed to be in love with Hailey. This is no ordinary tale of love, covetousness, and jealousy. There are meddling ghosts that add to the suspense and drama of it all. The mystery of Cristina and why she hates true love is a riddle that if unraveled, will stop the strange deaths that befall the residents of Raven Hill Estates.

EJ: If your book(s) were being made into a movie, who would you cast for the leading roles? Why?

Tina M. Randolph: Faith Alexander ~ Jessica Alba: Likable, uniquely beautiful…with the ability to stir up our emotions for the character.
Vance Carter ~ Hayden Christensen: Talented, handsome, mischievous…and intelligent.
Hailey ~ Blake Lively: How could any character not be jealous…of this girlfriend.
Shawn Howard ~ James Franco: Handsome and charming…with a spark of innocence.
Cristina ~ Natalie Portman: Her timeless beauty and acting range makes for the perfect ghost.
