 Meet Katlyn Duncan
 
I've been writing and reading since I can remember. My fondest memories were pushing mom out of the house to get the latest Goosebumps installment. Even though I went to school for biology and currently work in the medical field, I find time to write/read every day. Eventually my persistence turned into my debut novel, Soul Taken, the first book in The Life After trilogy published by Carina UK.

Outside of writing, I enjoy spending time with my hubs, pup, and sometimes a good rom com.

Foreign, or rather unfamiliar, would be the word I would use to describe how I felt

Faintly, I could hear the glimmer of voices surrounding me in this dark haze, caressing my ears like skin against silk. I felt like I was in a cocoon of sorts, protectively enveloped, quietly drifting in some far-off place. I wanted to stay that way forever.

But we all know that what you want never really seems to happen in the real world.


Something’s not right in Mia’s head.

The first thing is that her name isn’t Mia. In fact, she has no clue what her name is—who she is. All that she knows is that she’s not like the ones who found her: Dante with his kind blue eyes, Amy with her child-like demeanor, James with his questioning gaze.

And Briggs.

The one she cannot decipher no matter how hard she tries.

As Mia tries to fit in with these people, a strange occurrence is amidst outside. And as she finally remembers who she is …

Well, let’s just say that things get a little more complicated.

Excerpt
 Have you ever been in love, Mia?”

I just stared back at her.

“Because I think I’m in love with …” she shuffled closer to me whispering, “James.”

It was not like I had been expecting her to say Briggs.

“He’s so gorgeous, don’t you think?” Her eyes lit up enthusiastically as she fiddled with her choker then twirled her hair between her fingers. “His hair is so long and silky … and you should hear him speak Japanese.

It makes my toes curl, it’s so lovely.”

Her eyes caught my stare. “Say. Did anyone ever make your toes curl, Mia? It’s the best feeling.” Her eyes widened. “I wonder what your mind’s been keeping from you,” she mused.

I wondered that myself.
