Tabitha Vohn writes Poetry and Fiction (genre crossover with literary or literary). I across her work a few years back via GoodReads. I have also read and reviewed two of her books: Tomorrow is a Long Time and Requiem for The Fallen.
Here you can read a mini interview we did together and check out her newest book and the winner of the Indie B.R.A.G. Prize!
1 – Tell us more about Only for a Moment. When did you get the idea to put together a Poetry book and how was the process?
Synopsis: Poetry is an act of survival. A cry to everyone and no one. Intensely personal, shamelessly honest, and oftentimes an admission of inner ugliness, Only for a Moment chronicles nineteen years of the author’s life. It explores ideas of transience, transition, and redemption through the battlegrounds of metamorphosis from young girl to woman. Each poem presents a snapshot; a puzzle piece of what ultimately becomes a collective consciousness. A road map to trace back through the labyrinth of people and experiences that define us.

Genre: Literary / Romance / Time Travel
Synopsis: Cal Morrison is a Midwestern farmboy who was thrust into fame during the Old Hollywood era. Now, at eighty-five, he sees his life as wreckage. At the mere age of twenty-four, Eileen has seemingly little in common with Cal, except that she fell in love with him on screen.
When Cal and Eileen meet by chance, she discovers that her feelings for him are not without merit, and he sees in her a chance for true love and, more importantly, for redemption.
A controversial experiment offers the key to them both. With the help of a German scientist, Eileen will enter Cal’s memory and, together, the two will create an alternate reality within the realm of dreams. Replacing the memory of his first wife (his leading lady in his most controversial film, The Last Tomorrow), Eileen will step into the 1960’s and discover whether love can exist between her and Cal, and whether loving him unconditionally will be powerful enough to alter the course of his destructive future.
But there is one thing that neither has fully considered: what happens once they wake?
Tomorrow is a Long Time asks the question of how powerful one person’s influence can be in our lives, the lengths we go to for love, and whether it is worth it.
Tabitha Vohn is a pen name. Her creator is a certified bookworm, thanks to the countless fairy tales, Bible stories, and nursery rhymes she was read as a child, and the Gothic, Romantic, and Contemporary novels she enjoys today.
She has earned a B.A. in English and a M.A. in Teaching, and currently teaches high school English.
On Writing, Tabitha says, “I strive to write the type of stories that I enjoy reading. Ones that question those blurred lines between love and lust, between good and evil. Ones that make us question human nature while simultaneously seeing the beauty in it as well.”
Tabitha has published three novels, Requiem for the Fallen and Finding What Is, and Tomorrow Is a Long Time, (which received the AI Badge of Approval). She is currently writing her fifth novel and is in the process of publishing her fourth.
