Author Interview: Molly McLain

How old were you when you knew you wanted to be a writer?

Hmm, I’m not sure exactly, but I was young. By the time I was in 8th grade, I was writing pretty regularly. All of my friends knew I’d be an author someday.

 

Who are your favorite authors? (Please limit your answer to five or ten.)

I love Vi Keeland, Lexi Ryan, Corinne Michaels, Emma Holly, and Larissa Ione, to name just a few!

 

What are your greatest sources of inspiration?

MUSIC! Hands down, I’m inspired by music for story ideas. I’ll listen to the same songs over and over again while I write a book if their lyrics are really speaking to me. I tend to go with country or angsty rock. I’m just starting to make playlists to share with readers, too! 🙂

 

What genre(s) do you write?

I write primarily steamy contemporary romance. I stray a little to new adult every now and then, with some sports added in. I’m big on small town settings, too!

 

Do you have any current or future projects?

I have SO many projects going. The next book you’ll see from me is the second book in the Vegas Heat series. BREAK is a super steamy, angsty, brother’s best friend/best friend’s little sister romance. Look for it before spring!

 

Do you have an author website?

I do! Molly McLain

 

Do you have any blogs?

I don’t. I used to blog, believe it or not. I reviewed books, but that was moons ago.

 

Where can people find your work?  (to purchase or just to read)

My books are available at Amazon, iTunes, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, and Google Play!

 

If you could feature just one title, what would it be?

I’d go with Rush. It’s my newest book and a story that I’m really, really proud of.

 

Do you have any pseudonyms?

Interesting question. 😉 Actually, I do have one, but I haven’t come out as her yet. She’ll be published later in 2018.

 

Do you have any other hobbies besides writing?

I have three kids, so I don’t have a ton of time to do more than work the dayjob, be SuperMom, and write. I try to indulge in as much reality TV as I can. I’m a total junkie for cooking competition shows and the romance shows like The Bachelor or Are You The One?.

 

Tell us something interesting about yourself.

Um…I’m not all that interesting. Just your run of the mill mom, who writes books and drinks coffee. OH! I’m a cougar. Yeah, I said it. I have thing for younger guys. My husband doesn’t appreciate this. 🙂

 

Is there anything else you would like to share?

Just a huge thanks for having me! I really appreciate it! 🙂

 

Author Interview: H.C. Bentley

How old were you when you knew you wanted to be a writer?

I’m not sure I can list an exact age, but it was somewhere around late grade school/middle school.

 

Who are your favorite authors? (Please limit your answer to five or ten.)

Nora Roberts is my favorite (along with her JD Robb line). I also enjoy Barbara Delinksy and Debbie Macomber.

 

What are your greatest sources of inspiration?

This sounds corny but…life. Things I see or hear or read about. I like to weave real life into the world I create for my characters.

 

What genre(s) do you write?

Contemporary romance. I love writing about relationships, but I’ve also started venturing into romantic comedies (so much fun to write) and I’m working on my first romantic suspense.

 

Do you have any current or future projects?

My first romantic comedy (The Misadventures of a Dating Delia) releases Feb 2, 2018. The romantic suspense is set to release later this year, and I have a handful of stories I’m working on for various anthologies.

 

Do you have an author website?

I do! It’s the hub for everything I have to do with writing…newsletter sign-ups, info on my books, social media, etc. 🙂

H.C. Bentley

 

Do you have any blogs?

I’ll be honest…I suck at blogging. lol. I have one with my website, but it’s terribly neglected!

 

Where can people find your work?  (to purchase or just to read)

All of my books are listed on my website, with the buy links (including international Amazon links) on each book’s page.

 

If you could feature just one title, what would it be? 

That’s not a fair question! How can I pick just one??

 

Do you have any pseudonyms?

nope! Everything’s done under H.C. Bentley!

 

Do you have any other hobbies besides writing?

I used to have my own photography studio, and while I closed my business, I still like to take photos occasionally for fun. Reading’s a big one, and I also enjoy painting, drawing, etc. Basically, anything creative. I have a few television shows I watch religiously and I enjoy movies when I have the time.

 

Tell us something interesting about yourself.

I love to travel, and don’t get to as much as I did when I was stationed overseas. I enjoy seeing new places, taking in the history and culture. And the food (I could travel the world following the food)!

 

Is there anything else you would like to share?

I enjoy chatting with readers and invite them to follow me on social media! All of my links can be found on my website!

 

Excerpt from The Misadventures of a Dating Delia:

 

“Why did he lie about his profile picture? Did you ask?”

“I mentioned it and he just confessed to exaggerating.” Delia shrugged. “But if he’ll make up something as silly as his profile picture, what else will he lie about?”

“True enough.” BB waited a beat. “Can we talk about the car now?”

“The car. Oh, my God the car. It’s all he talked about. All evening. I could cite statistics on the damn thing, right down to how he picked the color. It took him two weeks to decide on it, in case you’re interested.”

“I wasn’t.”

“Me neither.” Sliding a look over to her friend, Delia felt her mouth quirk up at the corner. “You really want to make fun of his car now, don’t you?”

“I really do.”

“Well, I already asked him where the rest of it was and if it would grow up to be a real Ferrari.”

“You didn’t.”

“I did. Think it kind of hurt his feelings.” Delia smiled as BB let out a bark of laughter.

“Did you ask him about the clowns?”

“No.”

“Damn.” BB took a sip from her glass as she pondered. “And I’m going to assume since his scintillating car talk almost put you in a coma, you didn’t get to check out his package.”

“Beebs!” More amused than appalled, Delia chuckled.

“Well, it would have been interesting to know if everything in his life was on a smaller scale.”

“Stop.” Delia choked on laughter and wine. “You’re going to kill me.”

“I’ll bet it was. Small, I mean. Did he walk with a cocky – haha – swagger? Like he was swinging some serious meat?”

“Oh, dear Lord.” Unable to control herself, Delia set her glass aside to keep from spilling it as she began to double over in laughter.

“I’ll just bet he did.” Grinning into her glass, BB continued her roll. “I mean, a man can’t drive a car like that without being comfortable with other aspects of his life being smaller.”

“Hmmm.” Fanning herself, Delia pretended to give the matter some thought. “You know, you may be right.” “See?”

“He did spend an awful lot of time and energy polishing it tonight.” Delia’s grin grew wicked as BB choked on her wine. “The car, I mean.”

“Well played.”

Songwriter/Musician Interview: Jac Ttanna

*I first contacted Jac on Facebook two years ago and told him that I am a fan of (the original) Genesis. We’ve chatted a few times since then and got to talking about his work. Jac wrote a lot of the material for the band’s only album, In the Beginning, a truly excellent venture. Read his fascinating account below:

 

How did Genesis get started?

My old band The Sons of Adam had just split up. I was in some club on the strip when Sue approached me and said she was a singer and thought we would sound good together. I asked her to name me some of the stuff in her repertoire, and when she said “White Rabbit”, I said let’s go up to the house and see what happens. At the time I had no idea if she could sing or not, but I knew she was hot. She sang “White Rabbit” for me, and right away I knew we had something. We worked a few songs, one of the first of which was “Suzanne”. Meanwhile I was cruising the clubs looking for player who were too good for their bands.

 

I found Kent in a band fronted by Eddie James (who is the actor Edward James Olmos). I found Bob in a band called Rain. Both those guys were way better than their bands. I was pretty well known at the time so they were both interested in working with me. When they heard what Sue and I had they were in.

 

How old were you when you knew you wanted to be a musician?

That’s a great story. I was 14 when I saw my first concert. It was The Everly Bros, Buddy Holly, Paul Anka. And a bunch more… all legends. I was a skinny, kind of nerdy looking kid with coke bottle glasses, here on stage was this skinny nerdy looking guy with glasses just killing. When Buddy spread his legs, slammed that guitar and sang, the place went wild, and I said, “That’s for me.”

 

Who are some of your favorite artists and greatest musical influences?

It’s complicated because I’ve got singing influences and guitar influences. Singers range from Sinatra to Jackie Wilson to James Harmon to almost any great singer u can name. On guitar I really learned a lot from Randy Holden when we played together in The Sons of Adam. Actually every guitarist I worked with. You can learn something from everybody. Chris Morgan taught me a lot about open tunings. Of course Keith Richards is the master. I would also name Clapton, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Robben Ford, Hollywood Fats, and Kid Ramos as major influences. There are a lot more, but those r the main ones.

 

Which do you write first, music or lyrics?

It goes both ways. Sometimes I’ll think of a catchy lyric idea and go from there. And sometimes it goes the other way. Sometimes the ideas will kind of hang around for years.

 

Sometimes it all comes at once, and the songs practically write themselves. That happened with Girl Who Never Was and The Long Road. I wrote both of those songs in one night. (Different nights for each song).

 

If you had to pick one, what would you say is your favorite song off your album?

I’d have to say World Without You. That was one take, and the band is just cooking. There’s a live recording from the Avalon that I really lobbied to put on the Avalon collection that is coming out soon. Unfortunately the tape ran out right in the middle of Bob’s drum solo. But it still sounds better than the record. It was a very good band. BTW Kent wrote the entire instrumental jam that makes up most if the song, and somehow never got writer’s credit. I always felt bad about that.

 

Do you get to spend much time with the other band members socially?

Sadly, it’s been over 40 years since I’ve seen any of then except Foxy Freddy. We always kept in touch, and I even got on stage with his blues band once. We did his radio show together right before I left for Thailand. Bob and I email. Occasionally I’ll hear from Sue, but I think Freddy is in touch with her a little more often.

 

Do you have any favorite or funny memories about being Genesis which you would like to share?

When we first started, it exciting. But soon there was a lot of tension. I don’t want to get into the details, but, by the time we got in the studio, Freddy was the only one in the band that everyone else liked. When he got drafted, we lost the only glue that held the band together. But in the beginning, when were putting it all together, especially our first public appearance at The Troubadour, really a lot of fun.

 

Tell me something interesting about yourself.

I’ve got about two albums worth of material that I plan to record as soon as I can get my studio set up. I had about one albums worth that I’ve been working lately, then I found a tape from about 30 years ago of some stuff that Chris Mogan and I were working on. None of it was finished, but it was all great stuff. Chris and I had a great writing relationship, and we actually liked each other. I finished up most of the writing and rearranging of those songs before I left America, and they are really good. So I’m really looking forward to getting back to work.

 

 

Author Interview: T.G. Campbell

How old were you when you knew you wanted to be a writer?

When I was sixteen years old I wrote a murder mystery for my best friend’s sixteenth birthday. It was only forty pages long and very rough in its execution. I’d written scripts prior to the story—all of which my best friend had read and loved—but it was Death of a Kindred that cemented in me the desire to have a career in writing. I often toy with the idea of re-drafting the original story, and its two sequels, but I’ve not yet found the time to do so. Sometime in the future, perhaps? Who knows!

 

Who are your favorite authors? (Please limit your answer to five or ten.)

Agatha Christie: – She’s the master of the classic clue-puzzle detective story (the blueprint I follow in my own writing). She set the bar for the genre and is widely considered to be the greatest crime writer of the twentieth century.

 

Raymond Chandler: – A stark contrast to Christie’s books, Chandler’s follow a hardboiled private investigator called Philip Marlowe. Though a contemporary of Christie’s, Chandler is completely different. There are truly unforgettable one-liners in each novel, alongside gripping characters and exciting plots.

 

John Bainbridge: – It’s very rare for me to find a book I, quite simply, can’t put down. John’s William Quest thriller books (The Shadow of William Quest and Deadly Quest), and his separate Inspector Abs mystery series (A Seaside Mourning), are able to do just this. I could quite easily finish one of his books in a single day; they are that easy to read, that gripping, and that enticing. His works don’t get the attention they deserve, in my opinion.

 

What are your greatest sources of inspiration?

My inspiration can come from, quite literally, anywhere. I’m always on the lookout for new ideas for my stories as I’m constantly thinking about them. Once I have an idea, I write it out in a stream of consciousness in a Word document. I ask myself questions about the idea, and follow through on various threads. Next, I’ll do a very basic plot outline for the idea, alongside character profiles for the murderer, victim, suspects, and witnesses.

Research is the next step and, more often than not, I have to revisit my plan and tweak elements to ensure it’s historically accurate. I prefer primary sources for my research, e.g. accounts from the Victorian era and/or photographs of the locations I intend to use. I try to find photographs that depict the location as close to what it was in 1896 as possible. This is really important, in my mind, when describing the location to the reader.

 

What genre(s) do you write?

I write mystery/detective fiction. My style of writing follows the classic blueprint of the clue-puzzle style. Famously followed by the Queen of Crime, Agatha Christie, this style places emphasis on the puzzle posed by the mystery above anything else. To write a clue puzzle mystery, a writer must adhere to the notion of fair play. He/she is entering into a contract with the reader in which they are promising to set forth the clues the reader needs to discover “whodunit”. The challenge of constructing a solvable mystery, while also building a gripping and interesting story, is what I enjoy most about this genre.

 

Do you have any current or future projects?

I’m currently working on book three in my Bow Street Society Mystery series of novels. At the point of writing this answer, I’m approximately a third of the way through the book. I can’t give you a word count because I don’t limit myself to word count goals. In the end though, the book should be 100,000 words (approx.).

I’m also working on the next short story in the Bow Street Society Casebook series. This will be first released in parts through my newsletter and then published as part of a larger collection at the end of the year.

The Bow Street Society is a fictional group of amateur detectives operating in London in 1896. Each of its civilian members has been enlisted for their unique skill or exceptional knowledge in a particular field. This ensures the Society may work to solve cases on the behalf of their clients, regardless of their client’s social class or wealth; cases that the police either can’t or won’t investigate. From an artist to an illusionist, from an architect to a veterinary surgeon, the Bow Street Society is justice by all and for all.

 

Do you have an author website?

I don’t have a website dedicated to me as I prefer to put the emphasis on the characters and stories in my books. I therefore have a website dedicated to the Bow Street Society: Bow Street Society.

 

Do you have any blogs?

I don’t currently write a blog, but I do write a monthly feature for the online publication, Fresh Lifestyle Magazine. I was invited to write for it after my first Bow Street Society book, The Case of The Curious Client, won the magazine’s book award in April 2017. My current feature for the magazine may be found here: Fresh Lifestyle

 

Where can people find your work? (to purchase or just to read)

The Case of The Curious Client and The Case of The Lonesome Lushington books are both available through Amazon. So, too, is the first volume of short stories from the Bow Street Society Casebook, The Case of The Shrinking Shopkeeper & Other Stories. Those who want to read the future Casebook short stories before they are published on Amazon must subscribe to my free newsletter, the Gaslight Gazette here: Bow Street Society

 

Do you have any pseudonyms?

I don’t use a pseudonym, but I do use only my initials when publishing my books and short stories. The primary reason for this is that, in my experience, most people have difficulty spelling and pronouncing my first name (Tahnee).

 

Do you have any other hobbies besides writing?

I thoroughly enjoy reading and it’s one of my new year’s resolutions to try and read one fiction book a month, in addition to the non-fiction books I read for my research. Being on Goodreads has given me more motivation to read at least once a day, as I want to update my progress on the site with something greater than a couple of percent.

I also enjoy visiting museums, stately homes, and other places of interest in and around London. I’ve become a member of the National Trust and have plenty of outings planned for the coming year.

I enjoy Ghost Walks, too. Richard Jones—a highly experienced tour guide and master story teller—runs a whole host of ghost and historical walks around London. Such walks are an excellent way of finding out the historical background of a city, as most major cities have at least one.

 

Tell us something interesting about yourself.

I edit as I go when I’m writing, rather than editing a single draft at the end. I’ve tried both methods and editing as I go is, by far, the better option for me.

Author Interview: Teddi Robinson

How old were you when you knew you wanted to be a writer?

I was approximately 12 years old. My mother read true romance magazines and one of them had a contest with the prize of $1,000.00. I decided I’d write a story and enter the contest. I started my story in letter form from me to my lover. I used my father’s name. My letter disappeared. No one had seen it and I couldn’t imagine what happened to it. A few days later, I walked in on an argument between my mother and my father. Mother was waving my letter under my father’s nose and demanding who the lady was that had written to my father. I tried to tell mother the letter was mine but she said, “Your father lies, and you swear to it.” And with that she left the room.

 

Who are your favorite authors? (Please limit your answer to five or ten.)

Earle Stanley Gardner, Lloyd C. Douglas, Agatha Christie,

 

What are your greatest sources of inspiration?

People I meet and situations surrounding them. I also find inspiration from family and friends.

 

What genre(s) do you write?

I write in different genre(s). I have 9 published works: 4 romances, 2 mysteries, 1 short stories, all ghost stories, 1 autobiography, 1 experiences in Square Dancing.

 

Do you have any current or future projects?

Yes, I’m writing the autobiography of my adult life, a children’s book, and a fictional western on the Casket Girls. I will also be interacting with a group of students at Corydon’s Intermediate School, February 6, 2018

 

Do you have an author website?

Yes, it is Teddi Robinson, Author and I’m in the process of setting up an author’s page on Facebook. I need to bring my Amazon’s Author’s page up to date.

 

Do you have any blogs?

No. I haven’t had the nerve to start one.

 

Where can people find your work?  (to purchase or just to read)

Amazon, Create Space, and me.

 

If you could feature just one title, what would it be?

My first choice would be The Misadventures of a Country Girl. The second would be Midlife Crisis.

 

Do you have any pseudonyms?

Yes, Teddi

 

Do you have any other hobbies besides writing?

Yes, I walk, read, listen to music, sing with two senior groups, play cards with two different senior groups, and play miniature golf with another senior group.

 

Tell us something interesting about yourself.

I don’t know where to begin on this question. I’ve had a very interesting life from my childhood with a father who thought I set the moon and the stars in motion. He read to me every night from the encyclopedia and taught me to be a ham at the age of 3 or 4. I started school in January in New Albany. When we moved to the country, in March, I was in the first half of the 3rd grade. The new school was in the second half of the 3rd grade. I took the measles, all three kinds in secession, the last of March/first of April. The school year was over the first of May. They passed me to the 4th grade. I’ve always felt, I missed something because I feel that I didn’t go to the third grade at all.

Is there anything else you would like to share?

I enjoy talking to people and I especially like to make people laugh.

 

 

Author Interview: Josanna Thompson

How old were you when you knew you wanted to be a writer?

I’m not sure I ever wanted to become a writer. This profession chose me. I love to weave stories; I always have ever since I was a child. I used to tell my friends about my stories, and they encouraged me to write them. So far, I’ve only written one, and it’s the first of a series.

 

Who are your favorite authors? (Please limit your answer to five or ten.)

Judith McNaught

Clive Cussler

Diana Gabaldon

Alexandre Dumas

Ramcy Diek

I know, diverse taste – right?

 

What are your greatest sources of inspiration?

Stories come to me through many avenues. Most of my inspiration comes from reading history, and fiction. I love learning about different cultures, especially learning about how people lived. Often characters come to me and whisper in my mind. Sometimes stories come from hearing about their lives. As a result, I have many stories to tell. I just need to write them.

 

What genre(s) do you write? 

I write historical fiction at the moment, although, I have ideas for a contemporary women’s fiction and a children’s fairy story.

 

Do you have any current or future projects? 

Oh heavens, yes. I’m currently working on the second installment in my Woman form Eden series. The working title is A New World, and it chronicles my character, Sarah Campbell’s experience in Jane Austen England. (Sarah was raised on a primitive Polynesian island. She knows nothing about Western culture, including the perceptions about South Seas Maidens.) Sarah has a lot to overcome. Through her strength and determination, she learns to live in this complicated world.

 

Do you have an author website?

I do. It’s: Josanna Thompson

I highly encourage people to visit my website. I did a lot of fun things with it including adding character interviews, research, and other (hopefully) entertaining articles. People can also ask my characters questions. I promise that they will answer!

 

Do you have any blogs?

I plan to start one in the next few weeks. I spend a lot of time on Facebook historical chat groups. Authors and readers discuss a lot of interesting topics. I thought they would make a great blog.

 

Where can people find your work?  (to purchase or just to read)

Amazon (Kindle) for now. I plan to add paper versions in the next few weeks or so. I will also try to sell my books at my local bookstores. I also believe that people can order my book from their local library. (It may take a while for the library to get my book though.) For now, Amazon is the best place to purchase my book.

 

If you could feature just one title, what would it be?

It would have to be A Maiden’s Honor. It is the first book in the Woman from Eden series. I love this story because it is very different from the historical novels that are currently out there. The Barbary Coast/ Ottoman Empire serves as a backdrop for this adventure, and it chronicles Sarah Campbell’s first experience in a complex Western society. She is utterly unprepared for living in this world.

 

Do you have any pseudonyms?

Yes, Josanna Thompson is my nom de plumb. My husband and I decided that it was best to keep my professional life separate from my personal.

 

Do you have any other hobbies besides writing?

I do. My husband and I love, love, love to travel. We are fortunate enough to be able to take a big trip every year. So far, I’ve visited the South Pacific, Argentina, and many places in Europe – love Europe, but there are plenty more places to explore.

 

My husband and I also enjoy cycling and scuba diving.

 

Tell us something interesting about yourself.

I am fortunate enough to have married the love of my life. After 25 blissful years, we’re still in love. I live a charmed life too. I get to write my stories for a living, and I have made wonderful friends from all over the world. Life doesn’t get much better than that!

 

Is there anything else you would like to share?

Thanks for interviewing me. I had a great time answered your questions!

 

Author Interview: Meghan Colvin Egloff

How old were you when you knew you wanted to be a writer?

I enjoyed writing as young as elementary school but didn’t believe I had any talent with it until high school.

 

Who are your favorite authors?
