{Breaking Waves Blog Tour Stop} Guest Post & Character Interview

Today, I have the awesome Danielle Sibarium here, and her awesome character, Reece! Also check out the awesome giveaway at the bottom!

Thank you so much Madison Louise for allowing me to talk to your friends about my gift.
Have you ever know something without knowing you knew it? Okay that sounds a little confusing, I guess what I’m trying to say is did you ever know something was going to happen before it actually happened? Not that you thought it would happen because of other circumstances, like those dark clouds are making it look like it’s midnight, therefore, it will rain. More along the lines of you knew something extraordinary would happen today, or which horse would win the Kentucky Derby.  You just sort of knew?
It’s hard to explain, but that’s how I’ve been my whole life. I knew things would happen. Only I knew just before they happened, not like days or weeks, but maybe hours or minutes. Like if the phone rang, I’d know without checking the caller ID who called. I thought everyone had that “intuition,” that’s what my mom called it, but I guess I was wrong.
It wasn’t until my sophomore year of high school when my teacher started doing handwriting analysis on the class that I realized I could interpret energy. A few of us got together for a study group. We took a break and some of the guys started ripping on our teacher who was too busy analyzing us to teach us chemistry. That’s when I picked up a pen and started talking about Craig.
I told the group he had a secret, a deep, dark secret he was desperate to keep hidden. He turned red and snatched the pen away from me. Everyone looked at him. Wow, before that, I had no idea his mother ran off with his uncle. He cornered me in the hall and asked how I knew. Craig and his father just moved from some small town in Pennsylvania a few months earlier. I thought his mother died. I promised I wouldn’t tell anyone.
After Craig, Rania handed me her bracelet and asked if I could tell her anything.  I closed my eyes and felt the energy flow from the object into me. I asked her if March 1st meant anything to her. It felt special, like something good was associated with it. She jumped up and down. It was her boyfriend’s birthday. She later told me, she planned to give him a very special gift for his birthday, and my reading convinced her to go through with it.
Soon people started approaching me in the hall at school, or on my way home asking me for a reading. At first I gave one to everyone that asked. But soon I realized I got massive migraines when I gave readings. I started saying no, but if I got cornered at a party, like the night I met Reece, I’d feel like I had to give them.
When I met Reece, it all changed. I don’t know why, but when we kissed, it was like I knew what he felt, as if I were him. It thrilled and terrified me. I knew I’d be broken, shattered when he eventually left me. Soon after we started dating, came the visions. Maybe they started because our attraction was so intense, or because our love ran so deep. I don’t know why. There were just a few, but they really left their mark on me.   
But lately, I’ve tried to shut it all down. I’m just so emotional I don’t know what I should believe. I feel like I can’t trust myself. I know I’m being a total downer, I’m sorry.  That’s not why you asked me here, I just can’t shake this awful feeling that my life is going to be turned upside down any minutes, and that I’ll lose Reece forever. 

Thank you Jenna for stopping by!!

Now here's Reece, answering some little questions I thought up:

What’s your favorite food?
My favorite food  . . . that easy, but my mother would die if she heard me say this, French fries.

Favorite music group/soloist?
I love music, I don’t really have a favorite, but right now there are a few songs I really feel connected to. Maybe you’ve heard of them? Daylight by Maroon 5, When I was Your Man by Bruno Mars, and Mr. Brightside by the Killers.

Have you ever played a sport?
Of course I played sports.  I have all my baseball trophy’s and swim medals to show for it.  Besides, who do you think taught Aaron to be such an amazing pitcher?

What do you want to be when you grow up?
I know for sure I don’t want to be a lawyer. I just wish I could get my parents to understand that. I’d love to have a job where I could spend my days hacking into systems legitimately. That would be my dream job. I guess that would fall under information security.  

Have you ever owned any pets? If so, what animal?
No. My mother doesn’t like them, they’re too dirty. I’d love to have a dog though. I always wanted to grow up with a puppy.

Ok, now for a speedy round:

Hot or Cold?
Hot. Definitely hot! *wink*

Van or SUV?

Blue or Red?
Red. It’s a color of heat and passion.

Fast or slow?
Slow I like to take my time and tease, make things last a while. Unless it’s falling in love with Jenna. That was instantaneous. 

Thank you Reece for stopping by! ;)

About the author:

Danielle Sibarium grew up as an only child of divorced parents in Brooklyn, New York. Her imagination was developed at an early age. Surrounded by stuffed animals and imaginary friends, she transported herself into a fantasy world full of magic and wonder. Books were the gateway between her play world and reality. On any given summer afternoon she became Snow White sweeping and cooking for the dwarfs, or Cinderella waiting for the prince.

Danielle always loved dialogue and in elementary school began writing plays and short stories. This is when she began to understand she could not only bring her fantastical world to life for herself, but she could enchant others as well. And so she wrote. She wrote and wrote and wrote.

Sadly the first piece she ever sent out for publication of any sort was a letter to the editor of The Home News Tribune. It was a piece thanking the first responders for their bravery and selflessness on Sept 11th. It was chosen as letter of the week.

In 2007 Danielle collaborated with Charlotte Doreen Small to write songs for her CD More. Danielle wrote the lyrics for Take My Hand, and Goodbye, while Charlotte contributed the melody.

 In October 2011 Danielle’s debut novel For Always was released. She has since released Heart Waves and the second book in the Heart Waves series, Breaking Waves

Danielle graduated from Farleigh Dickinson University with honors, and currently lives in New Jersey with her husband and three children.
