By: C.M. Boers

Publisher: Independently Published

Publication Date: August 15th, 2016


Abby Martin has normal problems for a teenage girl—her dad lives in another state, her mom’s boyfriend is moving in, and school and work are stressful. But these are the least of her concerns when she begins receiving threatening notes and a black SUV stalks her at night. As the web of danger tightens around her, panic sets in. With the help of her boyfriend, Eli, and best friend, Casey, she must find out who is obsessed with her before her nightmares come true.

Complicating her life further, Eli and Casey are both acting strangely. Who can she trust? And will she figure out what’s going on before she ends up dead?

Encounter Derailed, the heart-pounding third novel in C.M. Boers’ Obscured series.

If you emptied out your purse, wallet, desk drawer, pockets, backpack, beach bag, saddle bag, or fanny pack, what would we find?
Lots and lots of crumbs!!! Ha! If you know me you know I am notorious for always having something edible in my purse.. whether for myself or the munchkins. Chocolate and I have a love/hate in regards to my purse.

What is your writing process? Are you a plotter or a panster?
The first book in my series was completely unplanned and came out as I wrote. The second was a bit more planned here and there as far as me writing ideas for scenes and such. The third I wrote and outline for things to happen in each chapter, out of order, but in that chapter. I find that no matter what you do, the story takes shape how it was meant too, and I think the outlines can help as long as you don’t get discouraged if something doesn’t play out the same way you have imagined it would. Those characters are tricky little devils sometimes. 🙂

Describe you book in 5 words or less
Danger lurks in unexpected places…

Do you have a special story behind your inspiration for the book?
There’s not a special story behind it, but I will say that I hope that its inspirational undertones help to motivate girls to be bigger and stronger than they feel they are.

Who was your favorite character to write and who gave you the most trouble?
I think my favorite character right now is Casey. He’s handsome and safe, but it changes. Sometimes even he gives me trouble! And Eli gave me the most trouble in this book, he wanted to be so all over the place!

If you could ask a character of your choice from THE OBSCURED series one question what would it be?
I would love to ask George if he has another reason for getting cozy with Abby’s mom… 😉

What scene from the book are you most proud of (because of how you handled the atmosphere, characters, dialogue, etc)?
My favorite scene from Derailed was when they play paintball. It’s so fun and playful! Love it!

Is there a scene that you had difficulty with and just had to power through to finish the book?
I always have a hard time finishing. The characters always want to do so much more and it’s hard to make them stop! 😉

What is your number one writing tip?
My number one writing tip comes from another author, like much great advice! 😉 Write everything with as few words as you can, it creates more suspense! 🙂

I am a wife and mother of three. I grew up in the sunshine state of Arizona with a love of reading and an ambition to write. But I never took my writing seriously until after the birth of my first child. After that I took up writing more seriously in my spare time and I haven’t stopped since.
