Author Interview: Maggi Normile

*I first met Maggi when we attended college together at Clarion University of Pennsylvania. We have been friends ever since. Maggi also had a work published in Chicken Soup for the Soul: Reboot Your Life compilation. Please read more about her in the fascinating interview below:

 

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

I have loved writing for as long as I can remember, but it was during my time as a performing arts major at the community college when I discovered it was something I could do as a career. My theater professor loved the screenplay I wrote for the Introduction to Film class and told me I should do more writing. I wrote couple things for the school paper and then went on to become an English major.

 

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

Ted Dekker, Tess Gerritsen, Scott Westerfeld, Carrie Ryan, Linwood Barclay, Libba Bray

 

What are your greatest sources of inspiration?

Right now, I write a lot of non-fiction articles for the NGO I work for. I’ve also done a lot of freelancing where I seem to focus a lot on either first person accounts or human interest stories. I love learning about people. I haven’t done much non-fiction writing but it is something I really want to attempt especially since I have had two people tell me recently that they can see me being a novel writer.

 

What genre(s) do you write?

Right now, non-fiction/journalistic type writing. I recently wrote my first one act play though and want to try more playwriting as well as a young adult novel.

My first one act-play, Nora the Narcoleptic (a spoof on Sleeping Beauty) is soon going to be part of the show Fractured Fairytales, produced by R-Act Productions, a theater group located in Beaver County, Pa.

Author Interview: Kharma Kelley

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

Wow, I think I really have to think back for this question. Hmm, so let’s see…whether or not I wanted to be a writer–I don’t know if I ever came to that decision until quite recently like as a thing that I was going to do. I would say that I’ve always enjoyed writing since I was a kid, and I believe there was a point when I started working on my first screenplay in junior high that I guess things got serious. I didn’t think about it at the time, but now looking back I’m like, “Whoa, that was pretty hard-core! Writing your first screenplay in junior high. In fact, I think I remembered at a lock-in I was actually finding of quiet place in the YMCA to finish up my scenes. Taking my index cards full of scenes and lining them up on the table trying to figure out you know, act one, act two, act three and how the scenes laid out. And a friend of mine even to this day was at that lock-in and just thought that I was completely insane! (laughs) While everyone was, you know, watching “The Matrix”, I was holed up in a dusty office at the YMCA working on a screenplay. Maybe I didn’t make a decision that yes, I’m going to be a writer, but it was something that I definitely took very seriously apparently at a young age. I’d say probably in my teens.

 

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

Oh man, there so many! Good thing you gave a limit! (laughs). So I would say the ones at the top of my lists are Toni Morrison. She’s fantastic. I started reading her pretty young. Margaret Atwood has a great voice. I am a Stephen King fan so I do enjoy the many of his books and moving into the paranormal romance genre my favorites are definitely Kresley Cole and Sherrilyn Kenyon as well as urban fantasy written by LA Banks who is no longer with us but thank God that her books are still here because they are fantastic. She really inspired me to not only write in urban fantasy in paranormal romance but also get drawn to the strong heroine and also heroines of color

 

What are your greatest sources of inspiration?

This with pretty much depend on what I’m writing. Of a big film buff I love movies and was a screenwriting background my narrative and stories tend to have a lot of action and a lot of fun dialogue.

I tend to draw a lot of my inspiration for characters from some people in my life, especially those strong females with an edge. I can say that comes from my mother. She was amazing and was able to do so much with so little. She was able to just make magic. Absolute magic. Like some women when you look at them or you see what they can do you just think that they’re absolute magic and my mother definitely was. In fact, I have a story titled Killing Me Softly in the works that I started just to deal with death and loss. Because I had a lot of sudden death and loss in my life a couple years ago. it was just kind of boom boom boom you know. Suddenly my mother was gone and then suddenly one of my brothers are gone and my pup companion was gone. I wanted to find some kind of creativity through that grieving process. When the character loses her mother, I was just able to spill a lot of that pent-up grief and you know, and just confusion of how someone you love could be here one moment and then gone forever the next. I think even now saying it still baffles me, but writing that in the story and being able to have readers say that they can relate to that kind of feeling of loss really helps.

There also seems to be a lot of inspiration from things that are just going on in the world. Just things you see on the news, the environment as it is today and the way people think. If you’re self-aware, it’s really easy for this to inspire your work or somehow absorb itself into your work. My story, Selenium Night, my first novel in my ShadowShifters series, there’s strong themes around family and how you make your family and oppression. You have these two factions of amazing creatures that, under the surface are pretty much the same. But unfortunately, they just cannot get along and if they really just peeled back the surface to find the truth of why they hate each other, they would realize that it’s all just bull****. That it’s just ridiculous. But in reality, some people don’t see that easily. When you’ve been doing something or believe in something for so long it becomes tradition, and becomes a foundation of your belief. And you know what happens when you attack someone’s beliefs! Whoa nelly!

 

What genre(s) do you write?

My primary genre that I write in is paranormal romance and I also do urban fantasy. My Urban Fantasy teeters really close into paranormal romance, but I do write both. I have been also drawn to contemporary romance after reading some. I just kind of fell in love with it and what’s funny is because after all my years of reading and adoring romance I think I have only read (up until recently) paranormal romance, urban fantasy, and historical. Maybe even a couple of Westerns. I just never thought to try it out but then recently I’ve ran into some authors who were really amazing at writing modern love stories and I’ve been blown away. So I want to do that too!

 

Do you have any current or future projects?

Oh my God I have so many projects. I try not to look at my list of books, but I can tell you something that I’m working on right now. So for my Agents of the Bureau series, I have the first book out (Tall, Dark & Deadly). The second book, Nocturnally Yours, is to be come out this year. Each could be read as a series or standalone novel. The first one was well received and the secondary character that was on the lips of every reader after it was done was Leto Petrides, so it’s only right that she gets her own love story.

 

Do you have an author website?

Yep! It is Kharma Kelley you can learn more about my books there I also have little freebies hidden away and don’t be shy to contact me. I love talking to folks!

 

Do you have any blogs?

Yes I do have a blog. It’s on my website and there I have tons of flash fiction, recipes, custom phone wallpaper… just go to town! Visit me and go to town 🙂

 

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

My books are carried on all the major online retailers such as Amazon, iTunes, Kobo and Barnes & Noble. There’s my blog too as I mentioned before with lots of excerpts and flash fiction. Usually once a year I’ll create a short story ebook and gift to my email subscribers and readers group. It’s totally exclusive for them for a year. My fans are super special to me. They’re my league of awesomeness.

 

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

Ahhh! It would have to be Tall, Dark & Deadly, my first book. It was so much fun to write! And to think, at first I was only going to make it a short story–how wrong I was!

 

Do you have any pseudonyms?

Yes well, Kharma Kelley is my pseudonym. It’s much more pleasant than my real name, trust me.

 

Do you have any other hobbies besides writing?

Unfortunately yes I do. I say that because I think sometimes it gets in the way of my writing but you gotta take a break sometime right?  But I love to paint, write music, and play guitar. I really don’t like to be bored.

 

Tell us something interesting about yourself.

I probably wouldn’t say as much as interesting as it is quirky or weird but I have it to then see to Wikipedia the food that I’m actually eating at the time. It doesn’t matter that I probably know 99% about it always that one percent that you’re curious that you probably didn’t know.

I also tend to read magazines from back to front. (Shrugs) Don’t know why.

 

Is there anything else you would like to share?

Just wanna say thanks so much for inviting me for the interview and I hope that people find my books engaging and fun and continues to help them believe in love because at the end of the story there is peace and there’s some happiness–which we can all use a little bit of every now and then. Wouldn’t you say?

Blogger Interview: Troy Tennard

*Troy and I began corresponding shortly after I followed his blog, Shades of Noir. When I found out that he is also a Genesis fan. I invited him to write for my Genesis blog, as well as interview for my Jen’s Favorite Authors page. Please read more about Troy in the following interview:

 

When did you decide that you wanted to be a blogger?

I’ve wanted to do this for the last several years. The main issue was fearing that I would have nothing to say. So the notion of starting a blog remained just that, a notion. I actually had a false start with a blog a few years ago. I did not understand how blogs worked. I wrote two blog posts and then wondered why no one read them. I did not promote the posts in any way. I thought the readers would just come to me. About three years ago I really began to seriously think about starting a blog, again. This time around, I did some research so I was much more prepared. I took the plunge in late 2015 and wrote about one of my favorite musicians, Phil Collins. To my great surprise, the ideas for future blog posts have been numerous. My fear of running out of ideas has proven to be unfounded.

 

What are your greatest sources of inspiration?

My greatest sources of inspiration are the things that I am passionate about. Music is first and foremost my passion. I must say that I love rock and roll. I have been a metalhead since I was in high school. I am also a fan of progressive rock. After that my interests extend to movies, television and baseball. In regards to movies, I love genres like film noir, science fiction and superhero movies.

 

Who would you say is your greatest musical influence when it comes to your blogging?

The band Genesis is by far the greatest musical influence in regards to my blog. My most popular blog posts are the ones related to Genesis and the band’s various members. In truth, I could devote a blog solely to various aspects of Genesis. As much as I love music, I did not want my blog to be a music blog. I have so many interests that I want to write about. I do not want to restrict myself to one area, even if it is an area that I love immensely.

 

How many blogs do you maintain?

Maintaining one blog is more than enough for me at this time. Since I write about various topics you might say that my blog is several blogs rolled into one. Many blogs out there are devoted to a single topic. I do think of starting another blog every now and then. If I did so, it would be devoted to a singular topic. When the time is right, I may consider it.

 

Do you have any other hobbies besides blogging?

I have always been a creative person. My other hobbies include art and playing guitar. I occasionally dabble in writing fiction. I have written a few short stories, unfortunately I am not always great at finishing them.  My goal is to start writing one and two page stories. I also love doing crossword puzzles; I find the challenge relaxing.

 

Tell us something interesting about yourself.

I enjoy playing the guitar. I am just an average player but it is something that I really love. I consider myself an amateur songwriter. I have always wanted to write and record a concept album. I just need the right storyline to come to mind.

 

Is there anything else you would like to share?

I have been enjoying my blogging journey thus far. I feel that I have grown as a writer in the last two plus years. I feel fortunate that others have chosen to indulge me and my likes and opinions.

 

Author Interview: R.C. Comer

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

My first attempt to be a writer was when I was 10-11. I wrote the first two or three chapters of what I was sure would become a best seller and a movie franchise Planet of the Werewolves. But don’t run out to the book store looking for it. It fizzled out and went the way of the dodo bird. Then when I was a senior in high school, I had a remarkable English teacher that inspired me to write. So I gave it a whirl and found that I enjoyed the process of crafting a story.

In college I wrote some bizarre tales, I called them Twilight Zoneish type stories. A professor, who had read some of my short stories, told me that I wrote like Stephen King, (I was reading a lot of his works in those days.) I took his remark as a complement at first. Then he explained to me that the world already had a Stephen King and did not need another. He told me to find my own voice and my own style.  That was good advice. I took it and worked at developing my own unique style.

Then life happened, marriage, kids, job and a mortgage.  And like so many other would-be authors I would start a project and never finish it. It takes time to be a writer, but more importantly it takes discipline and dedication to be a writer, something I was sadly lacking in my younger years.

 

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

I like a wide variety of authors including Kurt Vonnegut, Stephen King, Alice Rice, Mark Twain, Cormac McCarthy, Dashiell Hammett and Larry McMurtry. I am also a huge fan of David J. Skal’s non-fiction works  about classic horror films.

 

What are your greatest sources of inspiration?

I want to be unique, so I try not to allow what I reading to shape my writing. With that said I did draw some inspiration from the works of Dashiell Hammett and Bram Stoker. I would ask myself if these two authors were alive today what sort of vampire tale they would write. Full Blood: The Making was the result.

I also found a great deal of influence in old classic horror films. Particularly those directed by Todd Browning. I admire the complex and twisted plots in his films. Yet despite these sources of influence many readers have stated that they find my novel relevant to our current political climate in Washington. Some of my readers have compared the vampires to politicians. Other have compared them to the Illuminati. I find this particularly interesting since I did not plan to have any real message within the story at all. I wrote Full Blood: The Making to entertain not to education or enlighten. But it amazes me what my readers have taken from the novel.

 

What genre(s) do you write?

My first novel and the prequel that I am currently editing are of the horror genre. However I do not wish to have myself pegged as a horror writer. I do have other projects I plan on tackling in the future none of which are horror related.

 

Do you have any current or future projects?

I am currently in the editing stage of the prequel for Full Blood: The Making which will come out later this year. After that I plan to write the third and final installment of the Full Blood series, which is scheduled to be release in 2019. I do have other projects planned, including a contemporary novel and non-fiction book about classic horror films.

 

Do you have an author website?

Yes it is: R.C. Comer

 

Do you have any blogs?

I do, it is Fright Film Geek it is a blog about classic horror history.

 

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

My novel Full Blood: The Making is available on most online booksellers including Amazon and Barnes & Noble. It can also be found in a few libraries and bookstores.

 

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

Full Blood: The Making, that’s my first and only novel at this time.

 

Do you have any other hobbies besides writing?

Writing is really not a hobby for me, it is my full time job. I do like to read and conduct research for my non-fiction work. But I am a foster parent which means I have no real time for hobbies. I guess I could consider chasing kids around the house and taking them to the playground as a hobby. Yeah that’s a hobby, right?

 

Tell us something interesting about yourself.

Besides being lovable and a wonderful human being there’s not much to say. Except for the fact that I am noted for being a bit of a jokester. I guess I am a kid at heart especially when it comes to Halloween. Halloween is by far my favorite holiday. No strike that, Halloween is not a holiday at my house, it is a season, that starts in mid-September and ends November first. During those six weeks I will host several movie watch parties featuring the old Universal horror films from the 1930’s. I am an avid fan of those films, I guess you could say that my novel is in away a tribute to them.

 

Is there anything else you would like to share?

Lots of people have asked me for advice on writing, especially at book signings. I tell them all the same thing: “You’ve heard the expression “dance like nobody is watching”, well I say “write like nobody is reading.”  Just write. Write it for yourself and forget about the grammar and spelling. That can wait. The story is the most important thing, in fact it is the only thing. When a story is burning inside of you, you’ve got to fan the flames and write it like there’s no tomorrow. Because if you don’t the inspiration for the story will evaporate. And once it gone it’s hard if not impossible to get it back. Believe me, it has happened to me more times than I care to count. Once the story is down on paper then you can brush it up and polish it.  But write, you don’t have to write well (there’s a lot of published writers that don’t) just write, write, write.

Author Interview: Molly McLain

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! 🙂

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 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! 🙂

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.”
