Believe it or not, I wasn’t big into reading when I went to school. This was mostly because I was a much slower reader than everyone else, and I was forced to read books for school like Of Mice and Men, The Grapes of Wrath (OI! That was a nightmare for someone like me). HOWEVER, I think I vaguely remember enjoying reading Hamlet one year in high school. Believe it or not, I’ve never actually had to read Romeo and Juliet.
Hmm. Now, this is a tough one. This is like picking your favorite child. I honestly love all the characters in The World Among Us. They all bring something unique to the story.
Honestly, there’s really not much to it. I usually write a night (or sometimes right before work if I wake up early enough). I’m usually snuggled under my covers in my bed and in my pajamas. I like to be comfortable while I write. I put on my playlist. I usually listen to Lady Gaga, Selena Gomez, or the Jonas Brothers (something along those lines). I make sure to have a snack and a drink handy. Usually its chips and either iced tea or some sort of soda.
Hades would be Jonathan Rys Meyers
(mmmmm yum! I loved him in Bend It Like Beckham)
or Kirstin Dunst!
I can’t decide who I’d want for Damien or DuVessa yet.
The World Among Us started as a writing assignment for a college class. I had been reading Harry Potter & the Goblet of Fire when I got the idea to write a novel. The rest is pretty much history.
There are going to be at least two more books. Not sure how many novellas or short stories there will be yet though. I am also working on the idea of a spin off series from it that will told from Selene’s daughters’ point of views.
