FALLING is a gripping paranormal adventure with a quirky, resilient heroine!
Maya knew something was wrong… The stranger’s glowing hands were a big tipoff.
When the stranger murders Maya’s boyfriend with a single touch and injects the college sophomore with a DNA-altering serum, Maya prays for a savior. Instead, she gets a double helping of knight-in-not-so-shining-armor when two young men claiming to be her half-brothers pull off a belated rescue.
Now Maya is swiftly transforming into an “angel”, one of the scientifically enhanced, energy-sucking creatures her brothers have spent their whole lives trying to destroy. Maya’s senses sharpen, her body becomes strong and agile, and she develops the ability to visually see the emotions of those around her as colorful auras…beautiful auras…tempting auras.
Struggling to control the murderous appetite that fuels her new abilities, Maya must find a way to accept her new condition and trust her angel-hunting brothers as she joins them in their fight against the powerful and destructive creatures.
On the up side, at least Maya’s eldest brother has stopped trying to kill her!
FALLING takes all the foul-mouthed humor of the BLACK DAGGER BROTHERHOOD series and combines it with the action-packed, love/hate family dynamics of the CW show SUPERNATURAL.
Get ready to fall hard for FALLING, the first novel in J Bennett’s new adult paranormal series, GIRL WITH BROKEN WINGS.

How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
One thing that makes paranormal a thrill to write is that you can break the boundaries of reality while remaining within the constructs of a recognizable world. For instance, my protagonist Maya is very much a typical 20-year-old girl, but she can also pick up a car and feeds on the auras of living things. When I wrote this book, I got to explore the world in her shoes and figure out how her differences set her apart even as she navigated the same mix of emotions and complex relationships that many of us are familiar with.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
I don’t mean to be obvious, but my advice is — Write! Don’t talk about writing. Don’t wait for the muse. Write. If you can, write every single day at the same time. Make it a habit. Don’t worry about finishing something or whether or not what you write is good. In the beginning, just get words down on paper or the screen. Allow yourself the time to practice and mature as a writer. Don’t publish your first few stories or novels until your critique group tells you it is great. Just work on learning the fundamentals of storytelling — how to structure a story, how to write dialogue, how to breath life into characters. There is no need to rush.
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
A few years ago, I fell in love with the CW show, Supernatural. This was during the show’s early seasons before it went completely downhill (in my opinion). I loved the dynamic between the two brothers — Sam’s reluctance and sensitivity, and Dean’s rashness, loyalty and sarcasm. Their endless and exhausting mission seemed to thrilling and lonely at the same time. I wanted to take some of that essence, make it my own, and throw in a big twist. Out of that seed came Falling.
