Interview with Shelli Wells, the author of Untraceable

     Shelli Wells, the author of Untraceable, was kind enough to answer a few questions to share on Bookish. I hope you enjoy!

1.    What inspired you to write Untraceable?

My hubby came home from camping one weekend and talked about how far he hiked into the wilderness. He talked about how remote it was – only just 30 min to an hour away from people. And, how anyone could do anything and get away with it. That’s when the idea was planted.

2.    How does it feel to have your first novel published?

Awesome. It’s been a long, hard road. But it was worth the wait.

3.    Do you have any advice to aspiring writers?

Don’t give up. Be creative. Focus on Writing. And follow your heart.

4.    What did you most enjoy about writing Untraceable?

Getting back to nature. Creating a strong girl character in the real world without special powers. And touching on a topic like poaching that still happens today.

5.     What can we look forward to in your writing career?

I have a tween paranormal book coming out Jan 31st.

I am part of an Anthology called In His Eyes written from a boy’s perspectives
about girls. It is coming out Feb 14 on Valentines Day.

And Uncontrollable (the sequel to Untraceable) comes out summer 2012
