Title: Family Ties
Author: Ottillie Weber

Blurb: Abby was raised with not nursery rhythms by Mother Goose, Fairy Tales, or Asepses Fables, but narratives of her Great Grandmother, Emma. Emma has the dream life that got past down to the family as a story or so Abby thought. During one of the hottest summers in a long time in New Jersey Abby and her best friend Cory are working at a restaurant in town while their peers go to the beach to have fun. All the two do is work and Abby keeps thinking she rather be doing something bigger then her town and be out of the sight of her overprotective family. Abby learns after she is kidnapped that she has to be careful for what she wishes for, because it might come in a form she may not be expecting…


Author Bio: In a fantastical land where the weather is always changing, not too far from the beach and the moon is high in a freckling sky Ottilie lives. This land is call New Jersey where she has lived her whole life and she mostly grew up in Wall Township. Ottilie is currently studying History Education at The College of New Jersey. Writing helps as a procrastination tool and a savior to her sanity. Ottilie has major support from her caring, supportive family along with her loveable, insane friends.

Questions for your readers, Ottillie.
1. What inspired you to become a writer?
Probably my love for books and my overactive imagination inspired me to write! I've wanted to do this for so many years!
2. Why should people read your book?
Why should people read my book? I'll try to keep my opinion to a minion, but I really think that people can relate or at least get a good laugh at my characters. I probably concentrate more so on the characters then I do with the plot, I really enjoy them and think they deserve a chance to be read. Who doesn't love reading about characters who are witty, realistic, and occationally throw shoes at their friend's head? Why should people read my book?

3. Can you relate to any of the characters and why?
There is probably a little of me in each of my characters. Abby probably has a little bit of my saracasim that some people do not always seem to understand. I'm also like Abby who grew up in a kind of small feel town and always in high school talked about how to get out of here to do something, like travel the world.
4. Tell your readers something personal about you?
Haha I try to give a new detail with each interview, I really believe in honesty and try to be personable. Weird little thing about me, I have a scar under my nail on my right hand from when I was trying to light a candle, and a pencil point in my left hand.

Good interview. :) I can't say too much about getting scares from weird places as I have a few myself. It's amazing the stupid things we do that end up leaving a lasting mark sometimes.
