Book Synopsis:

Twenty-five years have passed since eight-year old Carl Weber drowned in Gray’s Pond, and now one member of the Adam’s family has returned to Kimberton, Pennsylvania, to reside once again in the old mansion. It is time for Mark Adam to revisit his past, and for his wife Donna and daughter, Kim, to become acquainted with their neighbors- a rather odd old couple that owns the farm across the street.

Each day, however, brings strange occurrences- increasing paranormal activity, till it becomes agonizingly clear that ghosts of the past are trying to make their presence known. As the family delves deeper into the past, the future becomes more perilous with every passing discovery.

Jennifer Chase: If your main character was trapped in an elevator with three other people, how would your hero devise a plan to escape? Would they take any of the people with them?

Tamera Lawrence: Mike, the main character in this book, would never leave anyone behind. He would use every means necessary to make sure everyone was safe – even putting his own safety above others.

Jennifer Chase: How do you get inside your main character’s head when writing?

Tamera Lawrence: I allow the main character to rein in my thoughts sometimes for days or weeks seeing life and decisions through their eyes. I try to distance my own personal feelings and bring about my character’s unique personal traits to life.

Jennifer Chase: What’s your specific genre? If you could write in any other genre, what would it be and why?

Tamera Lawrence: I have always had a flair for writing paranormal or thrillers. When I first started writing, Romance was my first ambition. I have learned to interweave both elements to satisfy my personal tastes.

Jennifer Chase: Why should readers pick up The Pond?

Tamera Lawrence: If you like paranormal mysteries, THE POND should satisfy your appetite. It has a ghostly element and just the right amount of mystery added to the mix. I like making people squirm.

Jennifer Chase: What types of emotions will readers experience when they read your book?

Tamera Lawrence: Hopefully, anyone who reads THE POND will turn the lights up a little bit brighter…perhaps wonder more about their strange neighbors.
