Welcome, Sara! What 5 things should readers know about you?
- I spend too much time on social media but I love connecting with my readers and that’s the easiest place to do it.
- I love wine. Malbec if it’s red and Pinot Grigio if it’s white. Coppola is the only brand that I am certain doesn’t give me a headache.
- I struggle with my body image but I know I’m not alone, so I started the FB group Romance Readers & Writers Fit Club. There are only two rules: No judgment! And No book promotion-health & fitness posts only!
- I’m the mother of four high school and college aged boys. This means I have existed in a state of organized chaos for the past 22 years. #BRINGIT
- I loathe cooking.
OMG to that #4—impressive!
Where did the inspiration for this book come from?
I was watching Dragonheart and it got me thinking…what if there had been a Dragon Clan among the Amoveo? What would that look like? Where have they been? Amoveo Rising was born that lazy afternoon.
Hmmmm…I may have to watch Dragonheart again… 😉
How long have you been writing, and what (or who) inspired you to start?
I’ve always dabbled in creative writing but it wasn’t until 2008 that I completed my first novel. I had gotten away from writing and acting, my two creative passions, and that year I realized I really missed it. I need a creative outlet to stay sane.
Going back to that #4 again, I can totally see why you need that creative outlet!
What are you working on right now? What can readers look for from you in the next year?
I’m writing the first book in the Dragons Rising series. One group of dragons went into hibernation about 500 years ago because of the trouble with the Amoveo Clans (no spoilers) and the aggression from the human dragon hunters. They went to ground in with the hope that when they awoke, the world would be more welcoming of their kind. After that, I’ll be tackling the final book in my Dead in the City vampire series and then the 2nd Amoveo Rising novel.
Awesome! Can’t wait 🙂
What are you currently reading, and what are your thoughts about it so far?
The last book I read was for the RITA competition and since I’m not allowed to discuss it, I’ll simply say it was a terrific book. One of the best in the bunch I received.
Not fair! Sigh…
If you had to “sell” your book in a single Tweet, what would you say?
Who loves a tortured hero in need of rescuing? How about a hottie who shape-shifts into a dragon? #dragons #romance http://tinyurl.com/Amoveo-Rising
Oh, me! Me! Wait…that’s your tweet, not an actual question. Still, ME! 🙂
