Author Interview:

1: Tell us a little about yourself and what got you into writing?

I’m a 19-year-old girl who started writing at the age of twelve. I published my first book after I turned sixteen in 2019. I currently live in OH with my family. What got me in writing was when I had a sudden realization that I should write my own books. All I knew was that I loved reading, and thought I should become a famous author like the ones I read. Now that I’m thinking about it, it was an awe-inspiring moment that set me on my writing career path.

2: Do you have a favourite time and place where you write?

Well, for me I either have to be in the writing mood or I will typically write in the afternoon as I’m not a morning person. And I can write in just about any place.

3: Where do your ideas come from?

My ideas come from everything around me. Such as books, movies, people, places, etc.

4: Do you have a plan in your head of where the story is going before you start writing or do you let it carry you along as you go?

I do a mixture of both. For books I’ve been writing a long time, I like to plan it out if I don’t have a particular word count I want to accomplish.

5: What genre are your books and what drew you to that genre?

I write in fantasy, sci-fi, and adventure. I write in those genres because I love reading those genres. And because those genres are just the easiest to write.

6: What dream cast would you like to see playing the characters in your latest book?

That is a tricky question. I really don’t know. I feel like my books would be more animated than live actions.

7: Do you read much and if so who are your favourite authors?

I read every single day, even if it means reading five minutes before I go to bed. My favorite authors would have to be Brandon Sanderson, Rick Riordan, Shannon Messenger, and Jennifer Lynn Barnes.

8: What book/s are you reading at present?

The books I’m currently reading are Spy Family number 6, Dune Messiah, and Cytonic.

9: What is your favourite book and why?

My favorite book would have to be A Star Named Vega because I finished it in one sitting. I absolutely loved the characters, storyline, and the world-building Benjamin J. Roberts created.

10: What advice would you give to someone thinking about becoming a writer?

If you’re becoming a writer, just know it takes time to craft your skills. And if you ever publish, make sure you have your book edited beforehand.

11: What are the best Social Media Sites for people to find out about you and your work?

Release Blitz: ‘All In’ by Kathia

All In by Kathia is now live!

Get all the feels in this steamy, feel-good standalone romantic comedy about falling in love and finding happily ever after despite the odds.

The goal… Find Erik Nilsen, young star of England’s hottest football club, a nice girl.

The coach… International football superstar Jamie MacNiven. Over thirteen years with women using his money and his fame have left him more than jaded—it’s left him numb. But Jamie knows he can train Erik to win in his personal life as much as he wins on the field.

The drive… For Jamie it’s simple: Erik still believes in love. Naïve? Maybe, but the thought of the kid losing that faith twists a part of his heart he thought was long dead.

The playing field… Well, it certainly isn’t Europe, where everyone knows their faces and the amount of money in their bank accounts. No—there’s one obvious choice where to find a nice girl for the kid: Chicago.

Author Interview: ‘Meara’ by Anya Wylde

A whisper of someone like her being born has been discussed for aeons by the gods. The question is, who is she, and where is she?

Meara lives an ordinary life with her eccentric grandmother and three siblings in a small Georgian house in Dublin. On her eighteenth birthday, her little sister is kidnapped by an incredibly powerful man, and her entire world turns upside down.

Long hidden family secrets tumble out, and supernatural beings suddenly surround her. However, she thinks she is a side character, the hero’s friend and the heroine’s sister. After all, her nature is more girl-next-door than a tortured soul with ninja fighting skills.

Her only desire is to get her sister back and keep her safe but to do so, she must battle dangerous beings and reign in her treacherous heart, which has begun to beat for her family’s sworn enemy, a gorgeous demigod.

Author Interview:

1: Tell us a little about yourself and what got you in to writing?

I always admired writers and was smitten with authors as a teenager while my friends were drooling over film stars. I assumed that once I retire, I will write for fun.

Then the big recession happened in Ireland and Dublin became a ghost town. It was eerie and reminiscent of the lockdown during covid. Jobs were lost and it was hard to survive. I read a lot during that time and finally decided to write the sort of book I would like to read but couldn’t find. Something light, funny, and completely madcap. 

2: Do you have a favourite time and place where you write?

I treat my writing as a day job which it is. So, I work from ten to six, preferably in my room but anywhere that is quiet will do.

3: Where do your ideas come from?

Dreams mostly. At other times I turn to mythology, history and daily life.

4: Do you have a plan in your head of where the story is going before you start writing or do you let it carry you along as you go?

I think of the ending first and then plot the entire story before writing it.

5: What genre are your books and what drew you to that genre?

I started with Regency cozy mysteries and romance, then veered off to contemporary romance, and now my latest book is my favourite genre, Fantasy. I want to write in every genre that I enjoy reading and hate being boxed in. It’s thrilling and a challenge every time I try something new. 

6: What dream cast would you like to see playing the characters in your latest book?

I find Turkish actors gorgeous. So hopefully, a beautiful Turkish man can play Kamraan, while a sweet Irish brunette can be Meara.

7: Do you read much and if so who are your favourite authors?

I love reading. I admire a lot of authors, too many to list. 

8: What book/s are you reading at present?

I am doing some research on Turkish mythology for my next book so reading stuff based on that. 

9: What is your favourite book and why?

It’s like asking me to pick a favourite child. I can’t!

10: What advice would you give for someone thinking about becoming a writer?

Finish writing the book in your head. The first draft is always shockingly bad, but by the time you have revised it a few times, it will be decent and perhaps, a masterpiece. 

11: What are the best Social Media Sites for people to find out about you and your work?

My website: https://anyawylde.com
