Today I’m excited to have Sarah Madison, author of Truth and Consequences, Book 3 in the Sixth Sense series on the Book Blog!
Hi Sarah, thank you for agreeing to this interview. Tell us a little about yourself, your background, and your current book.
I like skydiving and growing my own food. I used to ride event horses and worked in a stockyard. I’ve been an actress, an astronaut, a receptionist, and a medical professional. I once had to deworm a snake. There is truth as well as fiction in this paragraph, which makes me a storyteller first and foremost!
Truth and Consequences is book 3 in the Sixth Sense series. It features FBI Agents Jerry Lee Parker and John Flynn, and the events that occur when Flynn accidentally touches a mysterious artifact and gains unusual powers. As the Sixth Sense series unfolds, we learn there is a set of such boxes, and that Lee and John aren’t the only ones looking for them. They’re in over their head, and the water is just getting deeper…
1) Tell us something about your character’s friends.
Jerry Lee didn’t have a lot of friends before he met John. Partly because of his annoying ability to remember everything he’s ever seen or heard, and partly because he expects people to let him down. John, however, is a natural charmer who thinks people are only with him because of his looks. They make an odd pairing, but they really are each other’s best friend.
2) What is your character’s favorite meal? Favorite dessert? Favorite snack food?
Jerry Lee fancies himself a bit of a gourmand, so he loves eating out in general. He loves seafood, and John doesn’t, so he eats fish every chance he gets. The last meal he ordered out was rainbow trout with lemon biscuit breading and a blueberry Hollandaise sauce, served on a bed of couscous and asparagus. Dessert is usually something chocolate, though depending on the season, he might go for pumpkin pie or peach cobbler and ice cream. His favorite snack is a sharp cheddar with flatbread crackers.
3) What activity does your character absolutely hate?
Exercise for the sake of exercise. Jerry Lee would much rather play a pickup game of basketball than go jogging, but unfortunately the nature of his job means he has to stay fit and he keeps long hours. That means putting in time at the gym, which he loathes.
4) What other author’s book do you think your character would be good in?
Oooh, that’s an interesting question! Perhaps Whitley Gray’s High Concept—the characters there also deal with danger as part of their jobs working for the FBI, and I think Lee and John would have a little fun showing off their special talents for Zach and Beck.
5) What’s your favorite decade and why?
The 1940s. Why? There was something about the way so many people pulled together during World War II and did their part for the war effort. It was a time when women entered the workplace in great numbers, and great sacrifices were made. Besides, I love the clothes.
When FBI agent Jerry Lee Parker wakes from a coma after a murderous attack on his life, he has no memory of his immediate past. In the blink of an eye, he has gone from having a nearly photographic memory to recalling nothing of the last six months of his life, including his partner and lover, John Flynn. While Lee tries to reboot his past and reconnect with John, there are events at play around him he doesn’t understand. John is keeping secrets from him, secrets which could get them both killed.
Matters come to a head when Lee is hounded to turn over a mysterious artifact, of which he has no knowledge. The two men wind up in a fight for their lives as they risk everything to keep the powerful relic out of the hands of a ruthless killer. In order to protect those he loves, however, John may be forced to make a deal with the devil.

I knew the moment John walked into the bar. It was like my sonar pinged, my radar lit up—you name it. I heard the door open, and without turning around, I knew it was him because the hair on the back of my neck stood up. Because something in my gut tightened, and my cock lifted in earnest. I watched him in the mirror as he scanned the room, locked in on my presence, and stalked toward me like a panther in a pen full of sheep. Everyone else in the room was aware of him as well. I practically preened when he came up beside me. He took a seat and signaled the bartender, who came over with flattering attention.
