It’s an age old story of good versus evil and wrong versus right. The challenge, however, is that things are seldom as they seem. And what do you do when, no one is really interested in the truth?

On a cold night in April 1865, the steamboat, Sultana, exploded in the engorged Mississippi River carrying over two thousand Union soldiers who survived the infamous Andersonville prison. There were more casualties that night than the ill-fated Titanic. Yet, little is known about the details of her sinking. Some say it was a defective boiler and others suggest it was a coal torpedo planted by a group of Confederate sympathizers.
In addition to the nineteen hundred soldiers aboard the Sultana, there were several women with the Christian Commission and other civilians; many of whom perished. No one was ever held accountable for their deaths. Instead, the event was overshadowed by the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln, who himself may have had an unknowing hand in the unfolding of the tragedy.

Today, we sat down with author B. M. Griffin.
Q. Let’s get you introduced to everyone. Tell us your name.
A. Bonnie Griffin AKA B.M. Griffin
Q. Where are you from?
A. Richlands, NC
Q. Tell us about your latest publishing news. Titles, release dates, cover reveals...
A. My most recent release was Her Hidden Scars in October of 2018. It is book 2 in my Loving Her Scars paranormal romance shifter series.
Q. When and why did you begin writing?
A. I’ve been writing since I was a kid, but I started writing seriously in 2016. My job I’d been at for nearly 10 years was not fulfilling my true calling, which was writing, but I had long thought that someone from my small town did not have a chance at becoming a published author. Then I met some great indie-authors and fell in love with their words, and they worked full-time and had families and children just like me. That’s when I decided it was time to stop denying my joy and embrace what made me happy—writing. Did someone motivate you? My friends and family, co-workers, and fellow indie authors. A big shout out to author Jas T. Ward who reminds me that I can do this whenever my doubts creep in again.
Q. What inspired you to write your first book? Tell us about what makes that book special.
A. Romance has long been my favorite genre, but more than that I love getting lost in a world full of fantasy where the imagination has no limits. I also want my writing to have real meaning, and not just an instant love story, but something that embraces real hardships people face every day. Loving Her Scars explores domestic abuse and how it can negatively affect someone’s psyche, while also bringing readers into the fantastical world of werewolves and shifters, magic, and the power of true love. It is a story that people can get lost it, that embraces our real world and the fantasy, and shows women that we are strong even if we’ve been knocked down before and we can overcome anything.
Q. Do you ever include personal events or people in your fictional books?
A. Yes, although I alter the events to the point that no one but myself knows they were derived from real life events. And I cannot lie, the stories are right about authors killing off those who wrong them in their stories. Don’t be a jerk and I won’t make you the villain in my stories.
Q. Of all your characters, which one is your favorite? Why?
A. Aurora. She is incredibly strong, and she puts the safety of her people and those she loves above her own. There is no fight she will back down from to keep her people and her world, Tanzahar, safe.
Q. Is there a specific genre you enjoy writing the most? Why?
A. Paranormal and Fantasy Romance. I love getting lost in new, magical worlds. Creating worlds that capture readers’ attention so they feel like they are a part of the fantasy. I also love including a mix of women’s fiction in my romance, displaying the strength women possess as they overcome the scars life inflicts on them, but that doesn’t always mean they are perfect. Women can be hard, stubborn, and even mean when they are protecting their hearts.
Q. What is your favorite book of all time?
A. I love reading so much that I have never been able to pick a favorite. Some of my top books include “Hopeless,” by Colleen Hoover, “Mud Vein,” by Tarryn Fisher, “Lover Awakened,” by J.R. Ward, and “Andromeda’s Reign,” by K.S. Haigwood.
Q. Is there any advice or message you would want to give to aspiring writers?
A. If you want to write, need to write, then make time and do it. We have a limited time in this life, so we need to do what makes up whole and happy. It might seem impossible, like there isn’t enough time in the day or no one would want to read what you write, but you must make your desires come true. Nobody else will do it for you.
