Author Anise Eden writes The Healing Edge paranormal romantic suspense series for Diversion Books. She spends most of her time tucked away in her writing nook imagining things that aren’t there. On those rare occasions when she emerges from seclusion, Anise may be spotted in coffee shops, staring at her laptop screen and silently moving her lips as she reviews bits of dialogue. Although Anise claims that she’s the one in charge, the characters in her head do sometimes make her laugh out loud at inappropriate moments.

Do you plan everything or just let the story flow?
I’m more of an instinctive writer. I may start out with some general ideas about what’s going to happen, but for the most part, I let the characters tell me the story as I write. I give myself permission to make big changes and take wild detours.
Do your characters ever want to take over the story?
Frequently; see above! Ultimately, it’s a partnership. I think we do a pretty good job of working together and compromising where necessary.
What is your favourite food?
I’m a big foodie; there isn’t much I don’t enjoy! The easier question would be, what don’t I eat, but the truth is, I’ll try most anything once.
Are you a morning person or a night owl?
Definitely a night owl. Mornings feel like an assault to me, for the most part.
Where do you dream of travelling to and why?
I don’t dream of traveling to places as much as I dream of traveling to certain people. I have dear friends and family members who have been scattered to the four winds, and I love visiting them and see the places where they live through their eyes.
Do distant places feature in your books?
Not yet, but I do have plans for a book set in Florence, Italy. I certainly hope that I have to spend a lot of time there doing research.
Could you tell us a bit about your latest release?
ALL THE WOUNDS IN SHADOW is the second book in The Healing Edge Series, paranormal romantic suspense novels that blend the supernatural and the psychological. The first book, ALL THE BROKEN PLACES, introduces Cate Duncan, a therapist who is struggling to cope after her mother’s death. Cate’s world is turned inside-out when she learns that she is an empath and is recruited to work for the MacGregor Group, a clinic staffed by a unique group of alternative healers.
In this sequel, ALL THE WOUNDS IN SHADOW, Cate has just begun her paranormal training—and a romance with her intriguing new boss, Ben—when the MacGregor Group is called into action to help solve an attempted murder. The case turns out to be much more complex and challenging than they ever imagined, and Cate is thrown into unexpected crises that threaten her budding romance and potentially her life.

For fans of Karen Robards and Shiloh Walker, Anise Eden brings us the mesmerizing sequel to her paranormal romantic suspense novel All the Broken Places.
Cate's enemies aren't just surrounding her―they're inside her head.
Therapist Cate Duncan has just accepted a job with the MacGregor Group, a unique collective of alternative healers. She’s excited by the prospect of honing her empathic healing techniques among others like herself―aura readers, telepaths, crystal healers, and more. The fact that Cate just started dating Ben, her magnetic new boss, is an added bonus.
Before Cate can settle into her new routine, the poisoning of a prominent neuroscientist draws the entire MacGregor Group into both a federal investigation and an even more insidious threat. Protected by Ben’s former Marine Corps unit, Cate and her colleagues must use their alternative healing methods to solve the crime as their patient clings to life. The responsibility of discovering crucial information falls to Cate and her parapsychological powers.
But for Cate, unraveling the mystery means reopening wounds that had just begun to heal―and in the environment of the Marine Corps unit, differences between Cate and Ben become clearer, straining their budding romance. When a new crisis looms, Cate must trust in her colleagues’ gifts and the strength of Ben’s love, finding the courage to confront her deepest and most terrifying demons―or her own life will be at risk.
