Interview and Giveaway with T.P. Boje Author of the Afterlife series

I would like to welcome T.P. Boje to Book Flame today!

1. What inspired you to write the Afterlife series?

 Haven't we all at some point wondered where we will go when we die? I used to do it a lot as a kid. Is heaven for real and what is it going to be like once I get there? What kind of a body will I have? What will I look like? Will all of my family come with me? Will I meet my grandmother there? As I grew up I never thought much about life after death and if there really was one or not. I was busy living my life and thinking about my life here on earth. But then one day not many months ago a thought just popped into my head. What if we have to go to school when we die? As it so often happens, the thought wouldn't go away again once it had come into my head, and I started playing with the idea. If it is true that we leave our bodies here on earth, then we must have some new body on the other side, right? And it would probably take some time to get used to that new body. And how about going through walls and doors and stuff? I mean if we become spirits then we would have to learn how to do all those things, right? And what about flying? That is not something that comes to us easily. We would have to practice first, right? And someone would have to teach us. So eventually I started imagining this school that we all had to graduate from in order to be let into heaven, and soon Meghan popped into my head and started walking around on that school - that just had to be run by angels. She soon made some friends and fell in love (as it often happens when you are sixteen). And that was when the problems began. Because the boy was still human, living on earth, so how could they ever be together? That was when I realized that a book-series was born - and  it was about how dying is only the beginning of the next great adventure

 2. Can you see yourself in any of your characters?

I think I see a little of myself in all the characters - and a lot of other people that I have known at some point in my life. I like to study people and then use some of their characteristics in my stories.

 3. What character intrigued you the most as the author? And why?

Mick is probably the most complicated character in the book. He has a lot of different characteristics and they are not all good.

4. Do you have any other books in the works? Goals for future projects? 

I have currently released three books in the Afterlife-series called Beyond, Serenity and Endurance. But actually I am far from done yet. I have six books in total planned out, so I will be busy with writing them for the next many months.

 5. If you could co-author a book with any author who would it be?

If he could be a dead author then I would love to write a book with H.C. Andersen. He was from Denmark like me and he had a wild imagination like I have. I think we could make an interesting book together. Plus it would be a lot of fun just to meet him.

 6. If you could jump into a book and live in that world which book would it be? 

Fantastica in The Neverending Story. That has to be the most amazing world ever created by an author.

 7. If you could travel back in time and meet yourself as a 10 year old what advice would you give? 

 Enjoy childhood while it lasts, don't be in such a hurry to grow up. Oh yeah ... and remember that when you send a man a naked picture of yourself - HE SHOWS IT TO HIS FRIENDS! (Just kidding)

 8. What is the one quote that inspires you above all others?

"There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed."
-- Ernest Hemingway
Mostly because it is so true :-)

Meghan is 16 when it happens to her. She wakes up on a flying steamboat on her way to a school run by Angels in a white marble castle. She meets Mick who helps her through a difficult time in a different world filled with heavenly magic. One day she finds a mirror in the cellar of the school and goes through it. She ends up back on earth where she meets Jason. But Jason is in danger and Meghan knows something important.
Soon she will have to choose between the two worlds.
The one she belongs to now, and the one she left.

Beyond is a Y/A paranormal romance and the first book in T. P. Boje’s Afterlife-series

It is Meghan’s second year at The Academy. While trying to help and care for Jason on earth she is struggling to keep up in school, where they this year will learn both to ride Pegasus’ and fly through severe storms. Meanwhile Mick is becoming more than a friend to her and soon she finds herself facing the unavoidable choice.
But something evil is threatening the students at the Academy and Meghan is no longer safe within the walls of the castle. Something causes several of the students to be caught in the middle of a nightmare, that they can’t wake up from. 
Soon they suspect that there might be a traitor in their midst.
