GENRE: Paranormal Romance


Book Description


Soul Reader book coverWhen skeptic Marvin meets artistic Natalie in a coffee shop on a cold October morning, the two fall fast in love, but nothing is ever as easy as it feels.


Natalie believes that a divine something is guiding her life for her greater good, and it seems to be true. She lands her dream job and she and Marvin marry at a beachside castle. However, the ease and flow of their lives start to change. At the same time that Natalie becomes pregnant, Marvin experiences strange symptoms and visits his doctor.


When faced with a diagnosis that changes everything and odd dreams of the child that hasn’t yet been born, will Marvin let go of his skepticism or will he miss out on a lifetime with his loving family?



Marvin heads into his oversized master bath to start the shower. He is sensitive when it comes to nature, so he has a top of the line water purification system that allows him to use the ocean water in his home. It siphons water from the ocean, removes the salt and impurities, and leaves him with the smoothest, cleanest water in town. He is hopeful that the city will one day take advantage of such a resourceful product, but he isn’t surprised that they haven’t. The water is silky and hot as it rains down on his body.


His showerhead is automated with voice command, so he can tell it if he wants jet stream, raindrops, massage or pulsating. Marvin’s home may be more modest than most in the area, but he never held back on the luxuries of things he liked. He turns the steam feature on as he shuts the water off and grabs his towel. He loves standing in the steam, with it smelling the way only steam in a clean shower can smell. He has always been very in touch with his senses and felt them all deeply: touch, taste, smell, hearing, vision, and the unspoken sixth sense. He is unconsciously aware of his intuition because his analytical mind has yet to bring it forth; however, it will happen when the timing is right. He steps out of his steamy fortress, his hair awry, and drapes his towel over the shower door. As he steps in front of the mirror, admiring his sculpted body, he wonders if Talie might be up, if she was even awake.


Interview with Lisa Zajkowski


Any weird things you do when you’re alone?

Nothing that I can think of.  Everything I do, weird or not, is typically done regardless if someone is in the room with me.


What is your favorite quote and why?

“Be kind to everyone because you never know what battle they are fighting.” Derived from Philo, Plato and Socrates, with saying “be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.” I love this quote because we all have those things that boil below the surface.  You never know when someone is at their breaking point.  Kindness and love can go a long way, as well as not taking anything personally.


Who is your favorite author and why?

Stephen King… He’s one of a kind.


What, in your opinion, are the most important elements of good writing?

Reading and writing.  When you get the idea, jot it down. I find that I’ve come back to ideas years later when I am in the right space for it.


Where did you get the idea for this book?

It was an inspired thought about the main character, Marvin and the ending (I won’t spoil it) and how his life would evolve.
