Today I am excited to be featuring a favorite author of mine, who I just so happened to have had the privilege of publishing! Nora Blackwell is a fantastic wordsmith who has the uncanny ability to turn absolutely anything into a story; usually a sexy one! She has two published works out right now and is currently working very hard on a third. I can't wait to see what else she comes up with! 

About the Author:

Author Interview

·         When did you first realize that you wanted to be a writer?
o   I didn’t find writing. Writing found me. It started out as a therapy exercise and I found I enjoyed it, and I had a knack for it.
·         How many books have you written?
o   I’ve written several short stories that have been published over the years, newspaper articles, and countless notebooks and journals, but this is my first published book.
·         What are you currently working on?
o   I am currently working on two projects. One is loosely based on my life, and the other is a novella.
·         Which of your books was the hardest to write?
o   So far, one of the pieces I am currently working on.
·         Who is your favorite character from one of your stories?
o   I am afraid at this point I cannot choose just one character. I love them all.
·         What do you do when you’re not writing?
o   I love to spend time with my family, which consists of my husband, my daughter, son-in-law and my granddaughters, and of course my extended family of parents and siblings. I am an outdoors sort of girl, and love to fish, kayak, and pretty much anything that has me on the water. I love to read, and I crochet.
·         What is the strangest writing habit that you have?
o   I still prefer pen and paper over typing.
·         What inspires your stories?
o   My inspiration comes from many places. I have a very vivid imagination, and so it can be something I see happen between two people. It could be a place, a house, or a photo that inspires my brain to go traipsing off somewhere.
·         What advice would you give aspiring writers?
o   Practice, practice, practice. If you feel blocked, write about something simple. Describe your cat, or your favorite hobby, as if you were telling someone about it that knew nothing. Start simple.
·         What book could you read over and over again?
o   Pat Conroy – Beach Music. Also, To Kill a Mockingbird. Little Women. There are a few.
·         Who would you say has influenced your writing the most?
o   No one other author, really. But I do have a few favorite authors.
·         What famous person would you love to have as a fan of your work?
o   A famous person reading my work?  Oh… anyone, really. I cannot think of anyone that I just want to run up and hand my book to and say, please be a fan.  LOL 
·         If you were stranded on a deserted island and you could have ONE character from a book on the island with you, who would it be and why?
o   Oh wow. Okay. Well that would depend. Do I want off the island, or do I intend to stay forever?  Hmmm.  Any book? Well, since I recently read the series, my choice would be Doyle from the Merry Gentry series. The Darkness.  He has mad skills, is pretty darn hot, and makes MacGyver look like a cub scout!
