What was the inspiration for Mirror Image?

My inspiration for Mirror Image is Dr. Jeckyl and Mr. Hyde. I was watching a movie about them and then it went to a commercial with twins. I made the connection but came out so much more.

Who is your favorite character and why?

It has to be Jazz. For everything she went through, she’s strong and stubborn enough to endure the tragedies in her life. Jazz doesn’t let anything stand in her way so she can find peace and happiness in her life.

Which character is most like yourself?

Wow…I would have to say, Jazz. I had to traverse through breast cancer, loss of a sibling at a young age, divorce and an auto-immune disease, I also learned to be strong and stubborn to get what I want out of life.

Without any spoilers, what is your favorite scene in the book?

I hate to say but the end, when Lola breaks down to Jazz. I cried when I wrote.

Will we see these characters again?

Most likely not. They moved on with their lives.

What do you want readers to take away from your work?

My stories have characters with real life damage and situations. I put them through the ringer. But that’s Life. Stuff happens that can knock you down. Strive for that Happy Ending and don’t let anything stop you from getting what you want. And after reading my stories, I hope they can look at lives with better appreciation and wanting to read more of my books.

Tell us a little bit more about your other published works.

My first published Romantic thriller book is called Forgetting Jane. The story about half buried amnesiac woman found in a small Wisconsin town. Through investigation police chief uncovers a bigger mystery that is connected to the killer, victim and mystery of the girl in the yellow dress.

And I have a contemporary novella called Sweet Reunion, A Landry Brothers Duet part 1. It’s about a Chicago bakery owner is in dire straits because of her partner taking off with the shop’s cash. And who comes in to help save her from closing, but her college love. Conflicting love, past hurts and sweet treats to feast on.

What is it that drives you to write?

I have a strong imagination. And I love to see my stories down on paper and sharing them. It also helps clear the clutter I have in my head. lol

What was the best writing advice you ever received?

No matter if you write for just self enjoyment or for publication, write everyday…especially if you want to be published. It’s good practice. The more you write, the better you get and more you want to do.

Do you have a writing routine that you follow?

Yes. I’m up at the butt crack of dawn, and depending on which is pressing me, I write or edit about three hours in the morning. Lunch. Do what I need to do in real life and the afternoon, I put in about four to five hours.

When not writing, where can we find you?

Home most times. Or running errands, and/or with friends.

What is something from your bucket list that you have accomplished?

Being published.

That you have yet to do?

Visit Australia and New Zealand! Have always wanted to go there.

What is something readers may be surprised to learn about you?

I’m not sure about this one. I’m pretty open.

Anything else you would like to add?

Yes. Look for my next book, Sweet Redemption, A Landry Brothers Duet part 2 coming very soon. Sign up for my newsletter and you’ll get first hand information on my up and coming books and events.

Thank you so much for your time!

Thank you for having me!

With help from a Denver cop Mike Mitchell—the latest victim’s best friend and her accuser, Jazz uncovers facts about her past, a dark secret twisted with lies, and clues to the killer’s true identity.

When Mike finds Jazz on his doorstep, he can’t resist the temptation and helps her track down details of her past. As they uncover clues, he can’t ignore the potent chemistry between them. In this tangled web of chaos, their passion ignites, but can they learn to trust each other? While the body count grows, they will have to fight back, love hard, and survive in order to learn the truth and expose the real killer.

CJ Warrant is a lover, a hater and sometimes a fighter for all she’s passionate about. She can’t exist without coffee, chocolate and a damn story brewing in her head. She was born an overseas Army brat, in a Korean Italian household but settled in the states at the ripe old age of five.

With a long career in the beauty industry, a wonderful marriage to a great man and three kids nearly all grown, her view of life is as such.

She takes those crazy moments, stirs in the dark and brings her passion for words to life.

About the Author

olivia hardin pic b&w.jpg

When Olivia Hardin began having strange movie-like dreams in her teens, she had no choice but to begin putting them to paper. Before long the writing bug had her and she knew she wanted to be a published author. Several rejections plus a little bit of life later, and she was temporarily “cured” of the urge to write. That is until she met a group of talented and fabulous writers who gave her the direction and encouragement she needed to get lost in the words again.

Olivia’s attended three different universities over the years and toyed with majors in Computer Technology, English, History and Geology. Then one day she heard the term road scholar and she knew that was what she wanted to be. Now she “studies” anything and everything just for the joy of learning. She’s also an insatiable crafter who only completes about 1 out of 5 projects, a jogger who hates to run, and she’s sometimes accused of being artistic.

A native Texas girl, Olivia lives in the beautiful Lone Star state with her husband, Danny and their puppy, Bonnie.
