Elicia Hyder has been a writer since she was old enough to hold a pen. Most of her early stories (and current ones) are the product of an overactive imagination and an obsession with cute boys. Elicia had never seriously considered publishing as a career until January 2015 when a New York agency called with interest in one of her novels. Then, on the very same day just a few hours later, she received the opportunity of a lifetime: a cancer diagnosis.

Embracing the cliché and vowing to suddenly live life to the fullest and chase her wildest dreams, Elicia pursued the publishing industry full force. With the support of her family and friends, she published five novels and a novella all while enduring chemo and radiation.

Now, two years and three clear PET scans later, Elicia is living her dream CANCER FREE! She is a full-time writer of paranormal, romantic suspense and lives with her superhero husband, five loud children, and two co-dependent dogs in Central Florida.

Blessed or cursed with a connection to the souls of others, Sloan Jordan can see the best in people…and the worst. With nothing more than a glance at a photograph, she can judge the living from the dead and the good souls from the evil ones. For twenty-seven years, she’s kept her ability a secret, but eleven young women have been murdered in the mountains of North Carolina, and Sloan may be the only hope of finding their killer.

She has just agreed to help Detective Nathan McNamara with the case, when a stranger—who is as alluring as he is terrifying—shows up at her doorstep with a dark past and another puzzling mystery: she can’t see his soul at all.

Now Sloan is on the hunt for a deadly psychopath with two irresistible men. One of them would die for her, and the other would kill to keep her safe.

  1. (I hope this is what is meant by a “blog post comment” lol, but fantastic interview!!! And a question, too! Because I know the origin story of the Soul Summoner (which, I suppose it wouldn’t hurt for Elicia to explain that as well), my question is how did you take that one idea and evolve it like you did?! I’ve never heard of this type of paranormal series where people “summon” others, so really intrigued!

  2. I love the Soul Summoner series! It is a very inspiring book and something that I can look at in a technical point of view to incorporate in my writing. I loved the questions that were giving during the Q&A, it gave a better insight of the writing world and how you have to work hard to get your voice out. I can’t wait to read more of the series and hopefully get to meet Elicia again in the future.
