I’m thrilled to be a part of the official Blog Tour for T.A. Foster’s novel, TIME SPELL! Today I have a very special treat for you….an exclusive interview with the author herself! Before I share, take a peek at the details for the novel.
About TIME SPELL:
Ivy Grace is learning that magic–and love–are all about the right timing.
Follow the adventures of this spirited young Southern woman as she embarks upon a successful new career writing novels and movies that explore romantic mysteries of the past.
Ivy, a witch who spends her days practicing her brand of good magic in a sleepy little city, often travels back in time to observe events of yesteryear and turn them into compelling stories for her modern-day fans. But as her uncanny ability to weave enthralling historic tales lands her in the limelight, she quickly finds that fame sometimes comes with a price.
Evil forces now know who she is and threaten to reveal her family’s most sacred magical secrets.
With the help of her ruggedly handsome editor and a sexy supernatural ex-boyfriend, Ivy must unravel history while fighting to keep these ominous forces at bay.
Will Ivy be able to make the ultimate sacrifice for the people she loves the most?

What is the best piece of advice have you ever received in your writing career?
There are actually two statements that ring true for me—advice from two different friends: 1. Invest in yourself 2. Let your process be your process.
What was your favorite part of writing TIME SPELL?
My favorite part was creating Ivy and all of the little pieces that make her such a fun and relatable character. I wanted readers to get to know her through her family, her new glamorous writing life, her past relationship and the regular everyday twenty-something girl scenarios she lived through. I loved bringing Ivy to life on the pages of Time Spell.
Which actor/actress would you like to see playing the lead character(s) from TIME SPELL?
It would be a lot of fun to see Time Spell play out on the big or small screen. One of the great things in books is that readers can envision the characters however they want. It’s hard to cast characters that I created in my head, but if I had to put a face on Ivy, Finn, and Jack this is who I see:
Ivy, Claire Holt from The Vampire Diaries. I think she’s a versatile actress and could be both sweet and tough, plus she looks the part.
Finn, Stephen Amell from Arrow. He has those irresistible blue eyes and could easily convince an audience he’s the right guy to play the charming, sexy Detective Delano.
Jack, Henry Cavill from Man of Steel. Before I knew he was cast as Superman, I thought Cavill’s build and ruggedly handsome face would be perfect to play Ivy’s editor, Jack Coleman.
What is an unknown fact or fun trivia about TIME SPELL?
While I was writing Time Spell I actually took a trip to Las Vegas. The timing couldn’t have been better—I soaked in the atmosphere and some of those details are in the book.
The love triangle storyline for Helen/Holden/Simone was inspired by the Carrie Underwood song, Two Black Cadillacs.
E-Books or Traditional Paper Books?
My e-library is certainly growing, but it’s going to take a long time for it to catch up to my paper book collection. There is just something about turning a page in your hand.
What are you working on now?
I am currently working on the edits and production for Cover Spell, the second book in the Ivy Grace Spell Series. I have a total of four books planned for this series, but I am also working on a stand-alone spin-off for one of the characters. I can’t wait to share the next books with everyone.
Is there anything else you’d like to tell us?
Yes, I love hearing from fans. Readers can follow me on my website, Facebook, and Twitter. I welcome discussion on the book and look forward to sharing more about Ivy Grace.
About T.A. Foster:
T.A. Foster is a Southern girl whose heart and spirit are connected to the beach. She grew up catching rays and chasing waves along the North Carolina Outer Banks and now resides in the state with her adventurous pilot husband, two children and two canine kiddos.
Her long love affair with books started at an early age and as soon as she was able, she transformed imaginative stories into words on paper. Time Spell is T.A.’s debut novel, and the first in a series about a very adventurous, clever, and magical girl named Ivy.
T.A. has an undergraduate degree in Journalism and Mass Communication from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and a graduate degree in Educational Psychology from Texas A&M University. When she’s not chasing her two-legged and four-legged children or trying to escape for date night, you can find her reading, writing or planning her next beach trip.
