Killer Thriller Launch Q&A With Author Consuelo Roland


The L.O.V.E. blog would like to welcome author Consuelo Roland! Consuelo stopped by to share some great information about her latest release "Lady Limbo", a featured novel in the Killer Thriller Book Launch Event March 5th - 7th. Read below to see what Consuelo had to say about the book and about a secret she's never shared with anyone before... 



GIVE US THE 140-CHARACTER STORY PITCH:
Here today, gone tomorrow. Paola Dante’s husband has disappeared. All she has is the Limbo files.  7 women 7 files. Which one is Lady Limbo?


WHO'S ON THE COVER AND WHY IS SHE IN SUCH TROUBLE?
The perfect life… Or a beautiful lie? Forced to hunt down Lady Limbo, the ghost of a youthful love affair that ended in betrayal, Paola Dante risks everything and learns to trust no one in a race to find her missing husband. Lady Limbo leads her into dark territory she never knew existed, where she must question all she knows. What if the great love of your life committed the perfect crime?



YOUR CHARACTER, PAOLA DANTE, HAS TO COVER SEVERAL DIFFERENT ANGLES; FROM CAREER WOMAN TO COOL SEDUCTRESS TO RELUCTANT CHILD PROTECTOR. IS SHE MODELED AFTER YOU AT ALL?
Not at all. Paola knows how to stay one step ahead in the combat zone of corporate meetings; she treats bullying shark tactics with the disdain they deserve. On a personal level she is sassy, witty and smart  – this frightening mix of self-control and social maturity  is totally unlike me. But of course there’s a very human side to her. Sometimes it makes sense to work with background knowledge you already have. I could just let her develop organically without too much over-thought.

WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT LADY LIMBO?
I love that it’s a thoroughly twenty-first century story full of enigmatic twists and turns. Just when you think the story is going one way then it suddenly gets even more interesting and ups the ante. The shocks and surprises keep on coming at the character like she’s in a shooting arcade, dodging a hidden shooter in a world of seduction and darkness. Paola has to think on her feet all the time, or the truth will find her before she finds the truth.

TELL US SOMETHING ABOUT YOURSELF YOU’VE NEVER TOLD ANYONE:
I once kissed a total stranger on an empty night train making its way out of Frankfurt. He asked me to go to Paris with him for the weekend and I refused.  I’ve always wondered what would have happened if I’d said yes.



CONSUELO'S BIO: 
Consuelo Roland lives in Cape Town, South Africa. Her previous career was in corporate information technology and software development. She turned to writing after being hijacked by the ghost of an undertaker one winter’s evening. It happened in thick fog driving home from a late night music locale in a town on the edge of the sea. Her debut novel The Good Cemetery Guide was shortlisted for The Sunday Times Fiction Prize. Consuelo's essay, "Was Ayn Rand Wrong? An essay on capitalism", appeared in “The Face of The Spirit: A Century of Essays by South African Women.” She has also published poetry and short stories. Her second novel Lady Limbo, a thriller, is available at leading bookshops and online retailers. She is working on the next volume in the limbo trilogy.
