Louisa hates Ash Springs more than anything. She dreams of escaping the tiny village in the Nevada desert, of finding excitement and adventure. On a camping trip to Sequoia National Park with her four brothers, she meets the mysterious Brendan, and her life takes a dramatic turn… because for Brendan, it’s not a chance encounter at all. He’s been meticulously planning every step of Louisa’s abduction. Brendan whisks her away to the Canadian wilderness, an endless expanse of spruce trees and blue sky, populated only by wolves and ermines. He tells her she’s the light in his darkness. As her days of imprisonment turn to weeks, Louisa is forced to confront not only her own desperate terror, but Brendan’s traumatic past as well. Soon he becomes more to her than just her captor, which throws Louisa into a maelstrom of conflicting emotions: sympathy, need, even… love? Can she love her kidnapper? And just how dangerous is Brendan?
I am still completely thrilled by my collaboration with Milan Grünewald. He created a wonderful trailer for my book ‘Trapped: Until you love me’, full of suspense and brilliantly reflective of the atmosphere of the book. The visuals, text and music blend seamlessly and evoke something which took me many words and pages to portray. Just fantastic! I would particularly stress that Milan was always responsive to my requests, advised me and gave me all kinds of additional tips. I rate him as a competent, friendly and experienced new media artist, who I would trust with another of my literary ‘babies’ in a heartbeat.
