SPOTLIGHT ON: Minnie Lahongrais
How did you get involved in the Authors Supporting Our Troops event?
I’m not really sure how I stumbled upon this event. I think either the event was shared or I was invited to participate by another author, but I don’t remember which one. Sad, isn’t it? But I’m thrilled to be able to help thank our servicemen and women for their sacrifice in some small way.
What is your latest release and what genre is it?
My latest release is titled “Divergent Lives.” It is a psychological thriller.
Quick description of it.
This is the story of two people – fraternal twins R.J. and Adina who were separated at birth. Both are outwardly successful; each from seemingly divergent backgrounds.
Both are sociopaths; one is a serial killer.
Something unique about it.
There are two main characters and each of their stories is told in parallel. It is an exploration of the nature vs. nurture theory.
In addition, it also shows how anyone could be a sociopath.

Your short Bio.
Native New Yorker, Minnie Lahongrais unwittingly kick-started her second career in May of 2010 when she began writing an urban fantasy tale intended to help her cope with the death of her father. November of that year, she set the story aside to immerse herself in the annual madness of NaNoWriMo, meeting the challenge head on. Her first novel, “Sinner’s Ride” was published in Spring, 2011. That summer, she found herself obsessed with the story idea for “Divergent Lives.”
Currently, she switches between a “happily for now” story whose working title is “Skin Deep” and the urban fantasy she began at the outset of her journey. Currently there are four books planned for that series.
Ms. Lahongrais lives in New York City. She finds time to write every day and spends her free time with her family.
