Catalyst Tour Stop–Interview with Jennifer Snyder

So, I’m super excited today to share with you an interview I just did with fellow NA writer Jennifer Snyder, during which I pick her brain on her hot new Tethered series!

Sometimes who we really are lies buried just beneath the surface…

After learning she’s inherited a house in the beachside town of Soul Harbor, Georgia, Addison Harmon and her best friend decided to take a much needed vacation before the pressures of life after high school suffocate them too heavily.

But what Addison finds isn’t a chance to recoup from a bad break up and hang out with her best friend while she decides what she wants to do with her future. What she finds is Kace Sullivan—a sexy guy she can’t seem to get enough of—someone who with one touch reveals a seductive world full of magick and secrets Addison isn’t sure she’s ready to be a part of.

Hey, Jennifer! I had such fun delving into the world you created in Catalyst. It’s the perfect beach read for this summer, which makes sense since it’s set in idyllic Soul Harbor, Georgia. (I totally want to go there, by the way!) Where did you get the idea for this sleepy town and all of its mysteries?

  Everything about this series started with a dream. The ending of Catalyst was that dream. In it I was able to see the churning waters of the ocean from atop a cliff. From that scene, everything sort of just progressed on its own in my overly imaginative mind. 

In my Fate series, Magic is almost another character of its own amongst my cast. What drew you to the subject for your Tethered series?

  I’ve always had this fascination with the world of magic. I knew early on in my writing career that I wanted to write a story incorporating that interest. The Hoodoo aspect was a twist that jumped out at me during the many hours of research online I endured. It was dark, taboo, and held a dose of sexy to me. There was something acutely compelling about the possibility of such things and I knew I had to add it into the mix somehow. As for the magick Addison and the others share together, I really wanted to make it all about balance.

Your heroine, Addison, meets two hunky guys in Catalyst. How would Kace describe Addison?

A set of sexy eyes. Voluptuously plump lips. Insanely attractive. Powerful beyond her knowledge.

That said, how would Theo describe her?

Commanding. Naive to magick and quite possibly life in general. Lost.

Ooh, is there anything you can spoil about the rest of the series? What should readers be on the outlook for? 

The final novel in the series (Confined) will be coming out later this fall, in it Addison’s world will be flipped upside down and tossed sideways. There will be loads of action, betrayal, suspense, and of course some swoon worthy moments.

Speaking of beach reads, what are some books you’ve enjoyed this summer?

There have been a few. Shattered Promises by Jessica Sorensen. Just For Now by Abbi Glines. But most recently, Tragic by J. A. Huss.

Thanks for stopping by, Jennifer!

Thanks so much for having me!
