We are super excited to be part of the book tour for
A new romance novel by Marina Martindale that promises to keep you reading from cover to cover!
Here’s the character interview of Rachel Bennett, heroine of The Stalker by Marina Martindale:
Q: What did you feel about attending your ten-year high school reunion? Were you hoping to reconnect with anybody that you knew, a former crush perhaps?
I actually came to my class reunion on a whim. I was hoping to see some of my old girlfriends there, but none of them showed up.
Q: What were the thoughts that went through your head upon meeting Shane MacLeod again, after so many years?
When I first saw Shane I thought he looked vaguely familiar, but I didn’t recognize him until he showed me a copy of a yearbook photo I’d taken of him. Wow. He’s really changed. He was nerdy back in high school, but since then he turned into a handsome man.
Q: I’m sorry to hear that your former mentor Craig Walker has been making life hard for you. What has that been like? What have you been doing to cope?
Craig has gone out of his way to make my life a living hell. He’s stalked me all over social media, and when I started my next job, he sent nasty emails about me to all of my coworkers, as well as my boss. It was so embarrassing. Luckily for me, they all understood what was really happening. It’s been years since I got that promotion, and I got it because I earned it. Why can’t Craig figure this out and leave me alone?
Q: How do you feel about your family’s suggestions to take Craig to court?
Lawsuits are ugly and they can go for years. And they’re expensive to boot. I just want him to go away, but Mother is insisting I file the lawsuit and she won’t take no for an answer. Meantime I can’t shake this awful feeling that if I file it, it won’t end well.
Q: If there was one thing you could do differently, what would it be?
If only I had known then what I know now about Craig, I certainly wouldn’t have befriended him. Unfortunately, people don’t come with warning labels.
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publication Date: August 31, 2016

About Marina Martindale
Just like Gillian Matthews, the heroine in her debut romance novel, The Reunion, Marina Martindale began her career as a graphic designer and artist, and several of her paintings have been featured in juried art shows. Over time, however, she discovered writing was her true life’s passion.
“I love creating conflicted characters,” says Martindale. “I think they’re more like the people we meet in real life. I also like the complexity of romance. It’s an opportunity to delve deep into the human condition and try to understand what it is that motivates us to make the choices in life that we make.”
Martindale draws her inspiration from her own real life experiences, as well as those of the people around her. The stories, however, are fiction.
“The path to true love is never an easy one,” adds Martindale. “Some are haunted by people from their past. Others have been deceived or betrayed by the people they trusted the most. We all make bad choices, even though we usually don’t realize it at the time. My stories are about the unintended consequences of those bad choices, how the characters resolve them, and how they grow and become better people as a result.”
Marina Martindale resides in Tucson, Arizona. In her spare time she enjoys music, traveling, photography, and cooking.
