Can you tell us a little about your latest book?Revolution, (The Revelation Series, Book #4) is the fourth installment within The Revelation Series. It’s a continuation of Eve Collin’s journey of self-discovery, divine secrets, forbidden love and ultimate sacrifice.
What inspired you to write it?
The idea for Revelation (The Revelation Series, Book 1), and the entire series, stemmed from my combined love of John Milton’s Paradise Lost and my affinity for architecture. Paranormal romance is my favorite genre to read, and nothing beats an epic love story in my book. Basically, I combined all those elements to created the series.
How did you come up with the idea for the cover?
The cover for Revolution, as with all my covers within this series, is a visual capture of a poignant moment within the written storyline.
If it was made into a movie, who would you like to play the main characters?
Eve Collins would be played by Odette Annable. She was actually my muse for Eve and I think she would bring a lot to the character. As for Asher St. Michael, I would love to see a scruffy Dean Geyer take on Asher’s role. Hands down, Alex Pettyfer would be my dream Gage Gallagher (he too was my muse for the character in the book).
Is it part of a series or is it a stand-alone novel?
Revolution is the fourth installment within The Revelation Series. It’s a new adult, paranormal serial romance. Each book is a continuation and I often recommend reading them in order.
Where is the novel set and why did you choose to set it there?
Revolution, and the entire series, is set between England, France and Massachusetts, US. Each has a special place in my heart and all are important to the authenticity of the paranormal aspect of the storyline.
What is it about this genre that appeals to you so much?
Paranormal/Fantasy Romance is my favorite genre mainly because of the world building. There is nothing better than getting lost in a forbidden romance story that takes you on a journey through playful fantasy worlds. It’s like dark chocolate and dark roasted coffee. They just are perfect for one another. As an another, this category allows me to explore my imagination and make the unreal, real and possible. What’s better than that?
What made you want to become an author?
I’m not sure one event made me want to become an author. To be honest, I’m not sure any writer wants to be an author. I think we all just have stories to tell and share, so we do.
How do you come up with character names?
Character names are tricky. A lot of the time, I won’t name characters until I’m finished with their bio/background. Then, I research and fit names that I feel will fit their personalities and are authentic to the storyline or what makes up their character traits.
Name one of your all-time favourite books?
The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burrnett. It was the first book I’d read that inspired me to believe in magic and emotional bonds, even as a child.
Who, or what, inspires you?
(Laughs) This is another tough question. Everything and everyone inspires me. I take my lead from people and the world around me. I love to people watch, their actions, their decisions. What they do unconsciously when they think no one is around. I think that’s part of the allure of reading, we’re allowed to look into someone else’s life for a while.
Where is your favourite place to write?
In a quiet, warm, sun-filled room. Even the darkest chapters and storyline, I prefer to write in the light.
What is your favourite movie that was based on a book?
The Devil Wears Prada by Lauren Weisberger.
Name two of your favourite authors.
At the moment, Jeaniene Frost and Kylie Scott.
Tell us a random fact about yourself.
My favorite color is yellow.
Who would play you in the movie about your life?
Ewe. Um. LOL. I’m not sure who would want to. Let’s say Jennifer Aniston because she’s adorable and has great hair. Two things, I am not - lol.
Tell us an interesting fact about where you live.
There is a house in Rockport, Massachusetts built entirely of newspapers. It’s cleverly called The Paper House. I swear, Google it.
What are your (writing) plans for the future?
The final book within The Revelation Series, Restoration, is releasing in August of 2015. I have two new adult, contemporary romances slated for 2015/2016. My project list also includes some potential spin off stories from The Revelation Series.
Tell us one thing that's on your bucket list.
Appreciate one thing about my daughter, every day.
Favourite myth / fairytale?
My favorite fairytale is Disney’s Sleeping Beauty. I was so in love with Prince Phillip for slaying the dragon. Interesting….dragons and hot princes at such a young age?
Who/What did you want to be when you were a kid?
Honestly, it changed depending on which book, or which movie I was watching. Looking back, I think like most children, I just wanted to get lost in my imagination and the stories I was read or watching. Superwoman was pretty high up there for a while.
Thanks so much for having me today, it’s been a lot of fun!
