1.Hello Patricia! Can you tell us something about you?
Hello! I never thought I would be a writer. When I was younger, I went to college for art but dropped out after a year. I didn’t quite see where an art degree would take me. I ended up working as a cook in a restaurant and really enjoyed that. At one point I was a baker. Both jobs had creative aspects. I think I was destined to always be doing something creative with my life. When I started writing, the creative aspect came very naturally.
2.When did you start writing?How did you become an author?
I’ve only been writing for about 3 or 4 years. One day I decided to write down a story I had been thinking about. I have problems falling asleep so I let my imagination wander and that puts me to sleep. For a few nights I had been crafting this story while laying in bed. Wouldn’t it be fun to write down? I thought. So I did. After I finished that story (It will never see the light of day) I got another idea so decided to write that down too. When I got the idea for Being Human I thought it sounded interesting and that maybe others would enjoy it too. I started looking into publishing and now I have a folder full of stories I want to publish.
3.What kind of books do you usually read?Do you like vampires or dystopain books?
I read any kind of paranormal book. Vampires, werewolves, witches, demons. If they’re in the pages you can get me to pick the book up. I haven’t read many dystopain books, but what I’ve read I have liked. Plus, you can easily add vampires and make them better. 😉
4.Name some of your favourite authors and favourite books.
I’m a big fan of Heather Brewer and her Vladimir Tod series. I enjoyed Harry Potter. My favorite paranormal romance series is Love at Stake by Kerrelyn Sparks. She always puts in some hilarious humor that has me giggling as I read.
5.Tell me about the story behind “Being Human”.What inspired you to write this book?
I bought Thirsty by MT Anderson and the ending wasn’t Happily Ever After or Happily For Now. It was dark and grim. It left me wondering what happened next. I eventually got this idea about twin brothers – one turned vampire and no longer remembering his human life. That vampire didn’t remember his brother but felt the connection with his twin and didn’t want to leave him. Could this vampire survive in a world that he didn’t remember and hated him?
6.What kind of books are you planning to read and write in the future?
All I could tell you is the books I read will probably have paranormal and fantasy elements. I have a few story ideas I have first drafts written for. They all have fantasy, paranormal or sci-fi elements. One story is a series of short that has more adult themes. Sometimes I struggle to figure out what story to work on.
7.Will “Being Human” be realesed in Romania?
I’m hoping. Being Human is in the hands of a Romanian agent and hopefully she will be able to sell it to a publisher and get it translated. Cross your fingers!
8.Do you have a message for your romanian readers?
Thanks so much for all your support. It’s been amazing receiving the emails and seeing the blog posts and comments. I hope I can get Being Human translated for you as well as other books.
