When did you first consider yourself a writer?

I believe the moment I felt like a true writer was when my first book was published. It wasn’t official to me or even real until that moment.

Do you have a favorite movie?

One of my favorite movies is 50 First Dates. Everyone looks at me weird when I say that, but there’s something so romantic about a man who goes well out of his way to make the woman he’s head over heels for, fall in love with him every day. It’s my kind of fairy tale.

Which of your novels can you imagine made into a movie?

I’d love to see Deliverance turned into a movie.

As a writer, what would you choose as your mascot/avatar/spirit animal?

The Tiger.

Did you learn anything during the writing of your recent book?

Yes, there’s no such thing as too much research. Facts are very important when using real locations or historical.

How did you come up with name of this book?

I wanted a title that would convey what the story was about and had a special meaning without giving too much away. Deliverance fit perfectly.

If you could spend time with a character from your book whom would it be? And what would you do during that day?

Tiger. I’d love to spend a day and teach him things he’d never seen or heard before and see the look of amazement on his face as he gobbles up new information.

Are your characters based off real people or did they all come entirely from your imagination?

These particular characters are entirely a product of my imagination. It isn’t rare for me to base some characters on real people, but those in Deliverance were not.

Do your characters seem to hijack the story or do you feel like you have the reigns of the story?

Sometimes my characters hijack the story and lead it in a different path than what I intended. The Giver of Life is a prime example of that. However, with Deliverance, I was in control. Most of the time. There were some scenes where either Kristina or Tiger took over, but it was never for long.

Have you written any other books that are not published?

Yes, I do, and I honestly don’t know if they will ever be published. Some books I wrote were back when I first started writing and wasn’t very good at it. I’ve improved quite a bit since then, but still have so much to learn. Perhaps when I get to a point where I feel like I’m an amazing writer—if that day ever comes—then I’ll give them another go and rewrite them before seeing about getting them published. For now, they just sit in my USB, waiting to get a home.

What did you edit out of this book?

Originally, I entertained the idea of making Deliverance the first book in a saga or a series. But as I made progress with the story, I realized that I preferred to leave readers with the option as to whether they wanted to continue reading more of Tiger and Kristina or not. So, I rewrote the ending so that it didn’t end in a cliffhanger. For those who enjoy the book and want to stop there, they most certainly can. But if they want to know what happens next, they can pick up Dissension and the following installments.

A Deliverance Novel #2
by Kristy Centeno
Genre: New Adult Paranormal

In an age where humans dominate the world…

And supernatural creatures exist in the cover of darkness…

He must find a place among his rivals or risk losing it all.Hayden has had his hands tied coping with life outside of the Institutes. He’s come far despite all the bumps along the way. 

He’s allowed himself to believe he could live a normal life…until a new threat makes its presence known.

In an instant, his entire life is flipped upside down once more. Those he cares for are not safe with or without him. There’s no escaping his past. Or permanent solution to his problems. One way or another he’ll become the target for all those looking to destroy the hybrid who endangers their way of life and challenges everything they’ve ever known.

Now he must decide between kill or be killed, and risk becoming the very monster he’s fought so hard to prove he’s not. 

Freedom has come with a price, but is he willing to pay the cost?

“Where is Kristina?” Rose elbows her way to the front of the procession, ignoring the quick glares Bray’s werewolves direct at her. 


I scan the crowd, accounting for everyone except her. A knot forms in the pit of my stomach. She was here a moment ago. Where did she disappear to? A frightening realization assails me and I do a quick body count of Jovian’s men. Two are missing. Neither here nor among those I mangled in the fight. 

Fixated on the spot where I last saw her standing, I dash toward it. My nostrils flair as I breathe in, detecting three distinct scents. One of which belongs to her. 

The woods. They took her. 

Without a second thought, I race into the woodlands, following the vampires’ scent. My feet heavy, as if they’re made of lead. I fly between trees, moving at record speeds, but even so it’s like I’m not making any progress. As if the world is at a standstill. The more distance I cover the farther away she feels. 

She’s gone. 

Dismay settles in, filling me with trepidation and lack of confidence. I’ve lost her trail. I read the signs left on the earth. Two sets of footprints now instead of three. She must have not been walking from this point on. Where were they taking her? 

Afraid of what I will find at the end of the trail left by the pair who carried her away, I use my preternatural senses to put together a possible scenario. I don’t detect either the vampires or Kristina. No unusual sounds anywhere that can point me to where she is. 

Still, I push on. Despite my conscious stating repeatedly that she’s no longer within the vicinity, I trudge on. Injured and weak, I begin to feel the results of the multiple encounters with Jovian and his men. But I don’t care. My body will heal. Kristina, however, will not. If they harm her…

A Deliverance Novel #1

He’s been locked away his entire life.

He dreams of freedom.

The only way he can accomplish his goals is by breaking free of the chains tying him to a dark past and gloomy existence. But there’s one catch. He’s not human.

And he’s never set foot outside his jail.

Devoted to saving his peers as well as his own life, he sets out to find the one person that can help him achieve his objectives. He knows where she will be and what she will look like, but what he doesn’t anticipate is the fact he finds himself caring for the girl whose life he’s put at risk, more and more each day.

He has no name.

He has only known hatred and violence before her.

However, she will teach him to have faith in humanity, even if she can’t trust him.

Together they will embark on a journey to bring down a corrupt system responsible for the loss of many innocent lives. But when he finds his feelings compromised, can he still move on knowing that doing so will put an end to the life she once knew? How far is he willing to go to be free?

Kristy Centeno loves to spin tales of creatures that go bump in the night, with a sprinkle of romance to top them off. Her passion for writing stems from a lifelong enjoyment of reading and the pleasure derived from the magical worlds created by authors like her. She prefers her female leads strong, independent, and stubborn who will stop at nothing to save their loved ones and protect those they care for.

Kristy currently resides in Pennsylvania with her five kids and a pair of noisy parakeets. When she’s not working or writing, she juggles her free time between raising a handful of minions and pursuing other career goals.
