Chronicles of the Interred Series, Book One
Time has never been an issue for Baxter Jacobs, but then she never knew she had the ability to Bend it.
As her sixteenth birthday approaches, Baxter inherits a pendant that will change her life. Connected to the pendant is a dark and mysterious young man named Declan Ashdown. Trapped in a Time loop for the past 122 years, Declan needs Baxter’s help to escape. The only problem is, she has no idea how to do it.
To acquire the power she needs to free him, she’ll become one of the Interred, those whose Magical abilities emerge as they come of age. When she does, she’ll discover that Declan isn’t the only one interested in the fact that she’s a Time Bender.
As the Interment arrives, Baxter knows this will be no Sweet Sixteen. A vengeful relative and ruthless Council are determined to control her. Declan’s powerful and charming descendant, Jack Ashdown, claims he can save her. She’ll soon have to decide who she can trust, and how to master her new abilities before Time runs out.
Interred’s Dream Cast
Baxter Arabella Jacobs
Baxter is headstrong, independent and a scaredy cat. Someone who looks like Monika Jagaciak would actually be a great Baxter.
Declan Ezekiel Ashdown
Declan has been trapped in a Time loop for the past 122 years. He looks sixteen and is dressed in Victorian clothes. Ben Barnes was the only actor that I ever thought about while writing Declan’s scenes. He looks great in Victorian clothes.
John “Jack” Elliot Ashdown
Jack is cool and collected most of the time. He doesn’t take too many things seriously, unless something directly affects Baxter. Nicholas Hoult would be an awesome Jack.
Every story needs a villain, right? No one plays villains as well as Hugh Grant.
Baxter’s mom is slightly shady. While writing her scenes, I was slightly frustrated because she was strong, and had secrets that she wouldn’t divulge. I think Cameron Diaz would be an awesome Mara.
Richard “Dickie” Winters, MD
Dickie is fun, loving and a great parent. Alan Tudyk seems like the perfect choice. He just needs to dye his hair ginger! 😉
About the Author
Marilyn Almodóvar is the author of a series of YA paranormal novels. Born in Ft. Huachuca, Arizona, Lyn is a lover of words whose reading tastes range from Victorian novels to the books of Stephen King. Her favorite past-times have always been reading and writing, two activities that let her escape to other worlds.
It was this love that propelled her to choose Theater and French as majors in University, with a minor in English Victorian Literature. Lyn lived for almost a decade in England followed by three years in France before returning home to the States. A self-confessed citizen of the world, she is fluent in English, French and Spanish, with basic knowledge of the Italian language.
Lyn could happily exist breathing the clean air of Narnia, trapped in a cupboard under the stairs with Harry, fighting alongside Captain Jack Sparrow, doing an internship in Torchwood, or traveling around time and space with the Doctor…as long as she can have Mr. Spock, Captain Kirk and Captain Mal as companions.
Lyn currently lives in Central Florida with her French husband, English-born eldest son, and French-born youngest son. Her debut YA Novel, Interred, will be published by Iambe books on 01/22/2013.
