Complicated Souls - Berni Hellier

In this, our 8th and last, indie author review [of season 2 at least], we are chatting with Berni Hellier about her book Complicated Souls.

Complicated Souls is a psychological thriller. Life is going well for newly qualified counsellor Kira Devlin. Toby Phoenix is a troubled man, haunted by memories of his abusive childhood. When their worlds collide, a series of disastrous events are set in motion. Convinced that she can help Toby, Kira continues to work with him against the advice of her supervisor, her training and her gut instinct leading to dire consequences. Complicated Souls is a novella which can be read in 2-3 hours but be aware it is by no means a 'light' read. It contains some hard hitting content (child abuse, suicide, murder and strong language).

We had a fantastic tiny peek into Berni and her writing inspiration. Taking a peek behind the story lines, the characters and the inspiration is always a joy.
