Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I began writing when I was 13. It started with poetry and flourished into novels. I was never much for writing short stories, as I am a Southern story teller. Come sit a spell and let me tell you about my characters.
What's the story behind your latest book?
My current book is the fourth installment of my Soulmate Series, which follows the journey of Heaven Lewis and Dylan McBride, empathic soulmates. The story has evolved since the first book released in November 2011. The threats against Heaven's life continue. Dylan is willing to do anything to keep her safe, as is Layne. Tensions rise between the former best friends in their mission to find out who wants Heaven dead. A lot of information comes out in this book.

Smashwords book reviews by Kelli McCracken

  • Journey of Tara on Feb. 03, 2011

    Journey of Tara is a Science Fiction lovers dream. In my opinion, it's a Star Wars meets Star Trek meets Terminator type storyline, which is great because I'm a huge Star Wars and Terminator fan. It always amazes me when an author can create new worlds, species, and languages. Brian Hutchinson was able to do just that with this tale set way into the future. Our journey begins with Tara Vanderpool, procurer for hire, as she sets off to deliver the object of her latest client's demands. Along the way, she meets up with Dirk Bran, captain of the Marcel, the cargo ship hired to deliver Tara to the plant Terra, better known as Old Earth. Together, they make their way through galaxies, unusual species that hold a grudge with Dirk, and destroyer ships set up to prevent access to the plant Terra, all on their way to meet Tara's sketchy client Boru. Though I could continue with the review, I do not want to give out too many details for those inclined to read this book. All in all, I found this a great Science Fiction read. It reminded of how much I enjoy this genre and how easy it is to get caught up in the new worlds created by imaginative authors. I must say that Brian did a great job of catching my interest and holding it until the end of the story. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading books in the Sci-Fi genre.
