I was recently interviewed by eBooks India:
We conducted an exclusive interview with Teyla Branton, a lover of books since childhood, to find out about her work as an author, to learn about her latest book entitled The Takeover, and to get some insights into her upcoming work. Let’s get onto what Teyla had to say.
Hello Teyla and welcome to e-Books India! We are delighted to have you join us for this interview! Please tell us about you. Where are you from, what is your professional experience and how did you become an author?
I’m from Utah (United States) and I started publishing books about twenty years ago. I published dozens of books with a couple traditional publishers, and in 2012, I started dabbling in indie publishing.
What types of books do you write?
Under Teyla Branton I write what is typically called urban fantasy, but really should be called contemporary fantasy. I also write contemporary romance under the name Rachel Branton.
Your most recent book is entitled The Takeover, which is the fifth installment in your Unbounded series. Can you please tell us about the overall Unbounded series concept and about The Takeover?
Think Highlander mixed with the X-Men. Unbounded is a blend of science fiction and contemporary fantasy. My characters live 2,000 years, and each one has an inherited ability. They can absorb instead of eat, and their metabolism repairs their bodies quickly. The only way they can die is if all their focus points are severed.
There are two factions of Unbounded, one that protects humanity and one that want to control and enslave the world. There is also mortal group of Hunters, who want to eliminate everyone with the active Unbounded gene. At the beginning of the series, the world has no idea Unbounded exist, but that changes later.
The Takeover is the final battle between the warring faction, and the prize on the line is the fate of humanity. There is a strong thread romance in the series (all great books have some romance!), but the focus is definitely on the fighting and action.
