I'm delighted to be handing over to author P. A. Crenshaw today and I'd like to start by wishing her a very happy publication day! Her debut novel, After Thought, is available from today and P. A. is here to tell you all about it as well as what inspired her to write it.
Let's start with an introduction to the lovely lady herself.

P. A. Crenshaw was born and raised in a small town in New Mexico and now resides in South Carolina. An engineering manager by day, fiction writer by night, she is the proud mother of two amazing young adults and two mischievous kitties who enjoy walking on the keyboard while she is writing (the kitties, not the kids). When not writing, she can be found spending time with family and friends, reading, hiking, traveling, doing yoga, meditating, thinking positive thoughts, and expressing gratitude for life’s blessings. She is currently working on her next novel, AFTER DEATH, the irresistible sequel to AFTER THOUGHT.
What if ordinary people could do extraordinary things by thought alone? What if falling in love could get you killed?
Welcome to P. A. Crenshaw’s brand-new AFTER THOUGHT series, which unveils a secretive world of magic, danger, heartbreak, and romance, where the power of human thought can produce the ultimate good—and the ultimate evil. Captivating and action-packed, AFTER THOUGHT treads an addictive, sexy, and unexpected line between magical realism and urban fantasy.
Finally in New York with a career on the rise, rock star wannabe Adam Lancaster could have never foreseen that a mundane trip to the mailbox would change his life. The simple act of delivering a misdelivered package sets Adam on a path from which he can never return.
Smitten by his lovely, mysterious neighbor, Madeline Smith, Adam resolves to get to know her better. But the more time he spends with Maddie, the more mysterious she becomes. Strange, dangerous events occur. Her behavior is erratic. Too many coincidences defy explanation. And just when he thinks that they are making a real breakthrough in their relationship, she walks away “for his own good.”
Adam needs to
know exactly who he fell in love with and why she broke his heart. When he
confronts her to find the answers, will the truth set him free or destroy him?

What inspired me to write my book…
Being an avid reader of a wide variety of fiction and nonfiction genres, I've naturally always had an interest in writing and dabbled in it over the years. I got the idea for my first magical realism/urban fantasy novel, After Thought, several years ago after I read some nonfiction books about people using positive thinking to make the things they desire happen—or manifest—in their lives. I thought about how amazing it would be if ordinary people could take that concept to a whole new level and instantly manifest their desires with thoughts alone—like magic. Thus, the concept for the After Thought series was born.

I occassionally dip into fantasy books and I think this sounds like a great read worthy of being on anyone's TBR.
