BONESEEKER by Brynn Chapman Interview & Giveaway


Title: BONESEEKER
Publication date: June 17, 2014
Publisher: Month9Books, LLC.
Author: Brynn Chapman

Arabella Holmes was born different and raised different. After it became apparent she wouldn’t fit the role of a proper 1900′s lady, her father, Sherlock, called in some lingering favors, and landed her a position at the Mutter Museum. The museum was Arabella’s dream; she was to become a purveyor of abnormal science. What her father called a BoneSeeker.

Henry Watson arrives at the Mutter Museum with a double assignment–to become a finder of abnormal antiquities and to watch over and keep Arabella Holmes. An easy task, if he could only get her to speak to him instead of throwing knives in his general direction.

But this is no time for child’s play. The two teens are assigned to a most secret exploration, when the hand of a Nephilim is unearthed in upstate New York. Soon, Arabella and Henry are caught in a fight for their lives as scientific debate swirls around them. Are the bones from a Neanderthal … or are they living proof of fallen angels, who supposedly mated with humans according to ancient scrolls?

Sent to recover the skeleton, they discover they are the second team to have been deployed and the entire first team is dead. And now they must trust their instincts and rely on one another in order to survive and uncover the truth.

In fiction, she’s a strong believer in underdogs and happily-ever-afters. She also writes non-fiction and lectures on the subjects of autism and sensory integration and is a medical contributor to online journal The Age of Autism.

Tell us your latest news?

When and why did you begin writing?
Around 2005 seriously. I did it to escape my very stressful real life, and found the words pouring out.
When did you first consider yourself a writer?
HA. That changes day to day.
What inspired you to write your first book?
The special relationship some women have—how they can be so in sync, one knows when the other is hurting etc. IT’s a unique relationship—which grew into my first book, A Circle of Crows.
Do you have a specific writing style?
I’m not sure I can answer that objectively? Maybe ask one of my readers or my agent or crit partner lol.
How did you come up with the title?
Titles typically appear fully formed in my mind. Some good, some bad.
Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp?
Not really, just believing in more than yourself, and that love can be a powerful force.
How much of the book is realistic?
The relationship and historical aspects are very realistic.
Are experiences based on someone you know, or events in your own life?

Nope. Them’s dangerous waters I don’t swim in . ;)

  1. Nephilim have always been a fascinating subject to me. I understand there are many theories about them, this would be fun to see the author's perspective.

  2. The children on Sherlock Holmes and John Watson- must admit I am curious but also a bit skeptical. I am very picky about my Sherlock spinoffs but I would be interesting to give this a go.
