On April 27, 2014, Ditter Kellen shared her background and recent writing projects. Kellen, who resides in Florida, is the author of the "USA Today" recommended book series "The Seeker."

Ditter, what did you do before writing, and what genre do you write in?

"I'm a former 911 dispatcher. I have been in love with romance for over twenty years, and to say I'm addicted to reading is an understatement!"

What holds your attention when it comes to reading?

"My ebook reader is an extension of me, and it holds many of my fantasies and secrets. It's filled with dragons, shifters, vampires, ghosts and many more jaw-dropping characters who keep me entertained on a daily basis."

What is your passion?

"Well, I have a love of paranormal and, what some might call, an outrageous imagination. The two of them combined have brought me to where I am today. Writing, it's my passion, and it's what I was born to do!"

Do you have any personal achievements or projects you'd like to share?

"Yes, I am the founder or creator of several projects. Some of them include DitterCon (2012), which is an annually held author/reader convention. My blog, 'The World According to Ditter' has over 35 thousand subscribers. I've also been a book reviewer for 'Seriously Reviewed' from 2012-2013, and I founded 'According to Ditter.' It is a book group I began in 2012, and it is where I promote and read for hundreds of authors, plus there is 'DitterVerse.' The latter, since 2013, is a social media site for authors, publishers, readers and anyone in the literary world to connect."

Anything you'd like to add Ditter?

"Yes, I look forward to our upcoming DitterCon, October 16-19 in New Orleans. I want to add that I share my Florida home with a guinea pig named Shadow. I also adore French fries!"

Thank you Ditter Kellen for taking the time to share with us.

"You're welcome. For anyone who needs to contact me, my phone is permanently attached to my ear!"

"The World According to Ditter"

Relationships according to Ditter
So, I was talking with a friend this morning about relationships and how they have changed over the years. The excitement, challenge, the thrill of the chase. Not long into the conversation we discovered some similarities in ourselves that didn't bode well with either of us.
When my grandmother was alive, she would tell me stories about her life of dating, relationships and marriage. Men and women were different back then, I get that, but deep down I believe we are still the same animal, just playing a new game...

It was wonderful to meet the authors and fans from all around the globe at 2014 Dittercon. My Red Reaper cast were greeted with a LIVELY audience, who oohed, awwed, laughed, cheered and cried and I was pleased to show my hard work to an intelligent audience who clearly saw the movie as more than the sword and sorcery piece it appears to be. Conversations were as witty as they were sexy and a good time was had by all. I have already blocked off my calendar for Dittercon 2015!

"Thunder and Roses"

Tonya knows it's time for a decade-long conspiracy to come to a head, but no one can know her true identity. Her feral nature and instinctive mistrust have kept her alive for the past five years of deep cover. When her only choice is to run or face death, she runs. What she doesn't count on is Dakota Thunder, a Council bounty hunter who never misses a target. Tonya is running out of time, and the only man she can trust is the last man who should ever believe her.

Dakota Thunder is no stranger to betrayal. From a childhood born of nightmares to the death of his sister, he knows exactly what his kind are capable of. No one escapes his justice. What should have been a routine bounty pick up drops Dakota in the middle of a deadly blood feud involving shifter trafficking, extortion, and murder revolving around one wise-cracking beautiful woman of leopard royalty. She gets under his skin, digging her claws into his heart and reminding him of things buried long ago. He'd planned for everything except Tonya and the evidence that could bring down one of the most powerful organizations in the shifter world.

Nothing could have prepared them for their explosive attraction or the depths at which a madman would fall in order to destroy everything they love. With nowhere to turn, and the net growing tighter, they'll have to trust in one another to survive.

"Haunting"

Melody St. Claire doesn't believe in ghosts. Until a fire destroys her whole world, forcing her into a beautiful haunted house and the territorial domain of one very real, incredibly mysterious resident spirit.

Sexy Travis Santiago haunts the walls of his family home. Resigned to being alone, he merely exists in a place between the living and the dead until the frustrating little brunette enters his life and his heart. He can give her what she needs, if she would just believe.

The passion he ignites threatens to consume her, heart and soul, but may not be enough to hold back the nightmares. And Melody can't possibly hope to spend forever with a man who is already dead.

Relationships according to Ditter

I believe it's a natural instinct for a man to be alpha (most men, not all) and they seek the chase, the challenge. Like a wolf stalking it's prey. It creates a measure of pride for them to conquer and take the prize over other men.

Perhaps I should have been born a man. Over the years I have seen that same trait in myself. There is something about the game...the dance...the sparring...the calculated risks, and in the end...the victory.

Relationships according to Ditter

I was raised to believe that a man was head of his home. Not higher than his mate, but stronger. I still believe in that. Men sometimes are better decision makers due to the fact they think with their head and not their heart. I am an emotional decision maker. I write with emotion, I speak with emotion and I think with emotion. That in itself is a guaranteed bad decision in the making.
Do I need a man to complete me? Not at all. I love myself and am very happy with who and what I am. Do I miss that closeness with another person? Yes, I can honestly say at times, I do. But I won't settle for anything less than what I want.
