Abducted by a mad psychopath, Maddie narrowly escapes with her life. But that is only the beginning. Her mysterious rescuer introduces her to a world that Maddie has difficulty accepting as reality.

Playlist for Survival (by A.M.Hargrove).

Ok, as far as my playlist goes, when I wrote Survival, I was all over the board. My taste in music is way over the top eclectic and by that I mean I listen to everything from classical to rap, opera, bluegrass, pop, alternative rock, metal, classic rock... you name it and it is most likely on my iPod!

With respect to Survival, I listened a lot to "Beautiful Love" by The Afters and their video actually inspired my book cover because in the beginning they show the sky lit up by stars and I thought it was perfect! I also listened to Linkin Park, Coldplay and then some Amy Winehouse and Pavorotti. For Resurrection, I was really focused on Adele (Someone Like You and Set Fire to the Rain) and Cold's (not to be confused with Coldplay) A Different Kind of Pain. I also listened to Beyonce, Eva Cassidy and Rachmaninoff (as I love classical piano). As you can see, I'm a bit atypical in my tastes in music!

"Beautiful Love - The Afters".

"A Different Kind of Pain - Cold".

"Someone Like You - Adele".

After years as a successful sales manager in the world of pharmaceuticals, her company was gobbled up by a larger one and her career came to a screeching halt. Always one to look at the glass as being half full, she took the job loss as an opportunity to forge down the path of her life-long dream– that of becoming a writer. Her series, The Guardians of Vesturon, centers around a family of six siblings and is a mix of humor, mystery, suspense and of course, love. Survival is her first book in the series and her second, Resurrection will be released in January 2012.
