Elizabeth: Hmmm. The only character I am really certain about is Zou Tai, I would place Rain from Ninja Assasin to play him. He is so yummy. For Trent I was thinking of something like a young Collin Farell with a little more curl in the hair. As for Faith, I have absolutley no clue, probably a nobody.
PS: What was the first book you wrote? How did you get it published?
E: The first book I wrote was when I was fourteen but the never got published. The first book I got published was Vampyre Kisses. I went through Strategic to get it published, which means paying a fee. For Werewolf Descent I have decided to start my own publishing business and cut out the middleman.
PS: Who has been the biggest influence on your career?
E: My father. Without him I woudn’t have the business savy I do now. He was always so supportive and loved to hear about what new journies I was taking next. He always believed I would get this to take off, he is what pushes me every day to keep going.
PS: Do you read for pleasure? If so, what kind of books do you like to read? Favorite authors or series?
E: Of course! I think that goes hand in hand. I think it’s just more difficult to get the time to read when you’re a writer. I read fantasy and romance books mostly but a good mystery is always fun. I have many favs but my top four are Tamora Pierce, Kim Harrison, Christopher Moore, and Jeaniene Frost.
PS: Other than one you’ve written, what’s your favorite werewolf book? Favorite werewolf movie?
E: I actually haven’t read many books that have werewolves as the main characters except for Keri Author’s books. For my werewolf characters I did more research on them then reading fiction. Fav werewolf movie would have to be The Wolf Man! The original though!
PS: Do you generally prefer werewolves or vampires in fiction?
E: It depends on how each is created. I can be picky with werewolves and vampires. Hehe. But in a toss up it would most likely favor vampires.
PS: What has been the most significant book you've read in your life?
E: The Tortall Series by Tamora Pierce. Those books are what really got my mind thinking and fantasizing about other places and different characters. I blame her for making me the writer I am today. Haha.
PS: What project(s) are you currently working on?
E: Currently I am about to start writing Witch Devotions, the 3rd book in the Last Witch Series. Along with some shorts for some anthologies I hope to get into. Along with all this I am trying to get my publishing company up so I can start offering services to other indie authors.
PS: After writing, what’s your second-greatest passion?
E: I know this sounds odd but marketing and promoting are something I really love. I actually just got accepted to do my Graduate study in that field. It’s just fun for me.
PS: Do you have any other artistic abilities - painting, music, drawing, etc.?
E: Actually yes, I am not too bad as a painter, I took classes while in college and came out with some really neat stuff. I do like creating my own music on GarageBand. I even created the music for the Werewolf Descent Trailer. Drawing is ok as long as I have a teacher showing me how to do this and that. Over all I am just pretty creative, it’s the only side of my brain that works!
PS: Do you like chocolate? If so, dark or milk chocolate?
E: Now that you mentioned it I must have it! lol. And I prefer milk chocolate.
PS: Where can readers find you online (social networks, Goodreads, etc.)?
For Goodreads just search my book or name.
And if you need more than that well…I’m probably on it!
PS: I have to ask you this because you live in Wilmington - have you ever seen the Simpsons episode where the family goes to Delaware?
E: LOL! OMG I totally did! No one ever talks about DE, its like the forgotten state! But actually Restaurant Impossible was just at my office filming and they will be going to a restaurant in the area tomorrow. How awesome is that?
