Virtual Book Tour: The Legend of Rachel Petersen by J.T. Baroni #blogtour #supernatural #giveaway #interview #rabtbooktours @RABTBookTours

Outraged when The Post Gazette overlooks him for a promotion, 43-year-old Sportswriter Christian Kane quits the Paper and moves to the country to write fiction. Inspiration flows from a grave he stumbles upon in the woods. He pens The Legend of Rachel Petersen, a fascinating story revolving around the dead twelve-year-old girl who was laid to rest beneath the weathered tombstone in 1863. His book climbs the Best Seller lists; then Hollywood adapts it into a blockbuster movie. Kane becomes rich and famous; but then! Does an enraged Rachel become more than a figment of the writer’s imagination and rise from her grave, seeking revenge on him for slandering her name?



What is the hardest part of writing your books?

                        Staying focused and interested.


                  What are your most played songs?

                I like that old time rock and roll, like Bob Seeger!

Supertramp and Styx are my two favorite bands.             



Do you have critique partners or beta readers?

        My son, Skyler, is excellent at editing and offering advice.


What book are you reading now?

I don’t read much anymore.



How did you start your writing career?

I’ve always liked literature and word puzzles since I was young.

I was the weird kid in school who liked essay questions.



Tell us about your next release.

This story, Tell Me about Your Childhood, is totally different and unique. It is told through the eyes of a narrator who remains mysterious and anonymous till the final pages. The plot revolves around a very wealthy attorney and a manipulative psychologist; both men share a secret and join forces to rule the world, but one of them has a dark, hidden agenda.

Living in Western Pennsylvania all my life, I’ve been an avid Whitetail hunter since old enough to tote a rifle, which is also about as long as I’ve had a fondness for word games and literature.

While hunting one year, I actually did stumble upon a weathered tombstone in the middle of the woods.

While waiting patiently for that big buck to cross my path, I had plenty of time to ponder the dead girl's fate, which I was then driven to write.

Eerily enough, this is the premise of The Legend of Rachel Petersen, my first novel published in 2012, which I recently revised.

A newly retired transformer repairman, I refer to Johnstown, Pennsylvania, a small town outside of Pittsburgh, as home.

My wife Becky and I share our abode with two retrievers - Piper, and Remmy.
