Smashwords Interview

What do your fans mean to you?
The persons who enter the world of my novels are my readers. I do not think of them as "fans." That word seems egotistical. If readers like my work, they are my advocates. They spark my inspiration. Each of them is the person to whom I am telling my story. My imaginary conversation with them influences me to tell all the essential parts of my story. I value my readers. Their genuine praise encourages me. Their probing questions challenge me to tell my story in a clear and compelling manner.
Have you written a follow-up novel to THE WOMAN WHO LOVED TOO WELL?
I have written THE GHOST LOVERS, a sequel to my novel THE WOMAN WHO LOVED TOO WELL. In this sequel, Marc and Simone are caught inside their own battle to settle the issues of a broken marriage as World War II rages around them. Working for the RAF, the British Secret Service, and the French Resistance, they are searching for a double agent who has caused the deaths of thousands of allies. The presence of Hans Mueller--a former Nazi who is now a Resistance ally and Simone's lover--complicates every aspect of their lives. Marc is determined to win back Simone's love. He is also determined to prove that Hans Mueller is the notorious double agent.
THE GHOST LOVERS is available online in print and e-book formats at Amazon and Barnes & Noble. Please visit www.quaternitybooks.com.
Professor Lois Cuddy, a distinguished scholar emerita at The University of Rhode Island and the author of T.S. ELIOT AND THE POETICS OF EVOLUTION, is among the many reviewers who have praised THE GHOST LOVERS as well as THE WOMAN WHO LOVED TOO WELL: "Like other fiction by David Orsini, THE GHOST LOVERS is wonderfully written and crafted with a strong, dramatic plot; unforgettable characters who are haunted by the ghosts of the past; and a setting of natural beauty that is often in stark contrast to the violence and brutality of battle in war-torn Europe. THE GHOST LOVERS is a fast-paced and fascinating thriller that keeps the reader engrossed to the last line."
