NOT YOUR USUAL SUSPECTS

A group blog featuring an international array of killer mystery, suspense, and romantic suspense writers. With premises and story lines different from your run-of-the-mill whodunits, we tend to write outside the box. We blog several times a week on all topics relating to romantic suspense and mystery, our writing, and our readers. We welcome all comments and often have guest bloggers. All our authors can be contacted separately, too, using their own social media links.

We find our genre delightfully, dangerously, and deliciously exciting - join us here, if you do too!

Disney Adventure Movies

Do you remember those old  Disney adventure movies? Swiss Family Robinson. 20,000 Leagues
Under The Sea. Island At The Top Of The World. Granted, some are older than me, but there has still been an opportunity to see them all. As a kid I couldn't wait to go onto the 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea ride at Disney World. Even at that naive age I realized that the submarine never actually went to that depth. Heck it didn't even go under water–just the windows did! At such a tender age you realize that you've just been duped.

Still, I've always loved a great adventure–be it in print or on film. I'm supposed to be a romantic suspense author, but every now and then I need to feed that inner child–the one who was disappointed that the 20,000 Leagues ride didn't actually go 20,000 leagues down. Coming next month I'll be releasing BENEATH, a young adult adventure about a family whose boat is capsized on the Atlantic Ocean. They get caught in a rogue downward current that hauls them deep into the Atlantic canyons and sucks them into a cave at the bottom of the sea. 

It may not be romantic suspense, but it has a touch of romance in it, and there is definitely suspense. And this time the ride really goes underwater!

How about you? Do you still enjoy Disney adventures?


BENEATH

An overnight fishing trip on the Atlantic Ocean…
 
It was Stella Gullaksen’s final break before starting her freshman year at college. Joining her best friend, Jill, and Jill's family aboard the STARKISSED, Stella wakes to a violent storm that capsizes the boat over a hundred miles off the New Jersey shore.
 
As the waves haul her under Stella knows that she is going to die. Instead, an unusual current drags her deep into the underwater canyons of the Atlantic Ocean. Powerless against the raging waters, she is suddenly sucked into a ventilated cave. One by one, Jill and her family also emerge in the sunken cavern.

With only a faulty diving flashlight to keep oblivion at bay Stella and her best friend's brother, Colin, search the cave in hope of finding a way back to the surface. What they discover, however, is that they are not alone. There are other survivors in this subterranean grotto–survivors spanning decades of maritime disasters.
 
Will this discovery prove salvation, or have they all been condemned to the same fate? A grim finale at the bottom of the sea?

On an alliance forged by friendship and attraction, Stella and Colin battle to escape the danger that lies beneath.

Sounds like an interesting read. Love the mysteries of the sea. Throw in a cave and I'm sold.
