Read on to find out why Anne B. Cole is probably scaring Shaggy with her new release…
And now, a few things you may not know about Anne..
Where does your novel take place? Why did you choose that location? Have you ever been there?
There are multiple settings in Souls Entwined since my characters do a little time traveling. Sam and Gretta meet in a wooded park similar to the one I like to take my kids to.
To gather information on Gretta’s cursed ring, Sam and Gretta’s souls become entwined within two lovers on Milos in 1829,an island in the Aegean Sea
When Sam and Gretta return from the past they find themselves in a grassy field nestled into rolling mountains.
And then, there is the setting of the PIT. Purgatory in Tartarus. This one is creepy and evil…
I chose my settings because I love the outdoors and enjoy taking pictures while hiking with my family.
I’ve always wanted to go to the Greek Islands and someday I hope to vacation in Milos.
As for the PIT… I’d rather not visit there!
I have to agree…the pit looks soo creepy!
Do you have a pet?
We own three cats. Two are 6 years old and one is nearly 13. They love to sneak up on each other.
All three have unique personalities…
Nita, our lap cat, enjoys watching the birds and squirrels at the window.
Cookie Monster, whose likeness is portrayed as the cat in my story, is my writing buddy. She sits right beside me anytime I’m on my laptop. Although sometimes she thinks she is Spiderman and climbs the walls!
Saja, our 13 year old cat, loves her cat treats. Here she is napping on the bag of treats!She loves treats so much that she “hunts” for them.
She finds one of her catnip mice and brings it to us. Whenever she “hunts” we give her a treat.
Who says you can’t teach an old cat new tricks?
What is your favorite childhood TV show and what do you remember fondly about it?
I enjoyed visiting both sets of grandparents when I was young. Despite the travel, we were able to see them often on weekends and both grandparents had color tvs…. Watching Scooby Doo in color was AWESOME!
My own kids love Scooby Doo and we have a puzzle that I’ve done hundreds of times with them through the years. It looks like this.
I can credit Scooby and the Gang for my love of suspense and mystery!

Excerpt from Chapter Two of Souls Entwined
Not a sound was heard as Sam’s eyes snapped open. Under the branches of the downed tree, Purple Shorts began to stir.
“Sorry, are you okay?” Sam gently lifted his weight off her.
“I think so,” she replied faintly. Sam released his hold on her shoulder, amazed her face wasn’t scratched. He wondered how bad he appeared.
“Do you think you can stand?”
She nodded. Together they rose to their feet, easily stepping out from the tangle of branches. Eyes growing wide, she began to sway.
“Sit,” Sam commanded, steadying her.
“No, look!” She pointed.
Sam gazed over his shoulder. His mouth fell open. Beneath the tree, their bodies lay, motionless.
“Are we . . .” Purple Shorts began, but Sam shook his head slowly.
Before she could say more, he interrupted, “I don’t know. Do you feel—”
He scanned the area for help. Everything around them was still, as if they were watching a movie and someone hit ‘pause.’ No wind, no sound, no movement. He flinched when cold fingers clutched his hand.
Squeezing gently, he lifted her hand in front of their faces. “Can you feel this?”
Purple Shorts nodded.
“I don’t think we’re dead,” Sam whispered, gazing into her blue eyes.
