About the Author

I am the author of 10 suspense thrillers, including Ordeal and Tightrope, and one true-crime, Faces of Evil, (which I co-authored with Houston PD forensic sketch artist Lois Gibson.) My work has also appeared in numerous national magazines, and I am an experienced public speaker. I have led an unexpected life. Grew up in the city, but married a cowboy and moved to a remote west Texas ranch. Raised my two amazing children in the country with horses and dogs and cats and wild animals, but at the same time, traveled the country researching crime novels with law enforcement officers of all types. An independent and unabashed feminist who opposed the Iraq war, I still stayed married for more than 30 years to the same wonderful man and sent my son to fight with the Marines in Iraq twice. Both my kids are strong and independent too, and remain my biggest fans; they are the accomplishment of which I am most proud, even after publishing eleven books…and I'm still married to the same sexy cowboy.

I like to see in a book is a strong sense of place. If a story is happening in a real place that I’m familiar with, in this case East Texas, getting the look and feel of the surroundings right and correctly reflecting the culture and attitudes of the people, makes a big difference in how much I enjoy the read. Mills nailed this aspect. The only negative I saw wasn’t a big deal for me. The book, first published in 1991, has some pop culture references that would be meaningless for the younger crowd. But I’m sure when I read Twain and Hemingway in high school, references that were contemporary at publication time meant nothing to me a few years later. **Originally written for "Books and Pals" book blog.

As an author and book reviewer, I read a lot of books, so it is not often that I get really excited about a book. I get especially excited when I come across a great book in the genre that I write in - mystery and suspense. The last book in this genre to really get me excited was Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. Well add Spellbound by Deanie Mills to that list. I read this book in approximately three days and I didn't want it to end. I wasn't a huge fan of some of the decisions that the protagonist, Faith "Dani" Daniels made in this book, but hell, that's what makes good fiction. I did, however, fall head over heels for her love interest and great protector, Nathan Kendall. I adore his character - he just seemed so down to earth, guy next door type material. The plot throws curveball after curveball, and I loved every bit of it. This book is not for the faint of heart, so go in with the expectation of shock appeal and gritty suspense.  I am officially a fan. I absolutely love Deanie Mills' work in Spellbound, and I look forward to reading another of her books titled Darkroom. Brilliant job.
