The folks at Interviews with Writers have been awesome enough to have me! When you get a chance, stop in and check out my interview. They had some great questions, like:
What inspires you to write?
I’ve always made up stories in my head, but what inspires me to write them down and publish is that I’ve been irritated by various main stream clichés. When I started the Amaranthine series I was tired of kick-butt females who seemed to go from plain Jane to vampire killer in a span of five pages, not to mention that there were never repercussions. No one bothered to explain how this new vampire life style affected her family, her friends, the house she left behind. And she was always so hot/sexy/gorgeous/clever/sassy that every vampire/werewolf/man that saw her instantly wanted her. Characters like that make me go “bleh”, so I wrote something different.
