Interview with Connie Ann Michael, Author of Forgotten

Connie Ann Michael Head ShotConnie Ann Michael was born and raised in Seattle Washington but recently moved to Montana. She lives with her husband and her two dogs and enjoys any activity which will get her outdoors. Connie has two sons who have successfully graduated from college.

Hi, Connie! Congratulations on your continued success as an author. Thank you for coming by to spend a little time with me and my readers. We’re looking forward to learning a little bit more about you and your work.

 

  1. When did you first begin to write?

I began to write when my boys started high school and they were busy with sports and I found I had a lot of extra time.

  1. How many books have you published at this point? How many do you have in progress and/or in your head?

I have published five books as of now. I have three books in a new series that are getting ready for editing and two or three partials and two definite ones in my head which are outlined but not written.

  1. Where does all your inspiration come from?

My inspiration comes from the people around me and current events.

  1. Who has been your favorite character, and who has been the most difficult to write?

My favorite character has to be Raven from my Thousand Moments series. The hardest character I have written is Oli from my Screamers series because I want readers to be sympathetic to her but I also want her to be strong.

  1. Did you have to do any research for your books?

I did a lot of research for my military romance but haven’t had to do too much for the Screamers series.

  1. What do you hope your readers will take away from your stories?

The theme I write in all my books is one of redemption. I want my readers to know that God forgives no matter how far you have gone away from him. No sin is too great if you ask for forgiveness and believe Jesus died for your sins.

  1. Sometimes scenes don’t go where you expect them to go, and characters don’t act the way you intend them to act. Have you experienced anything like that in your writing?

During my Thousand Moments series Raven and Emme’s relationship really moved in a direction I wasn’t expecting but with PTSD it couldn’t be a smooth road and I had to let it flow naturally until I could reunite them.

  1. When is your favorite time to write and where is your favorite writing place?

I love to sit outside in the sun to write and can write for a very long time outside, however it is difficult because my computer screen reflects the sun and I can’t see what I’m writing.

  1. What is your next project?

My next project is a series called ‘I wanna be’; the first book is Different. It is a young adult realistic fiction taking place in high school. It really reflects the message I want to give about no matter how far you fall God is always there.

Thanks again for your time, Connie. All the best with your current projects and all the stories you will tell in the future.

Blessings,

Linda

Connie’s latest book is Forgotten, a dystopian romance:

forgotten-coverOli left the safety of her home to spread God’s word to a world that’s forgotten He exists. She never expected to become a pawn between a mother she thought was dead and two competing sanctuaries, all of whom see her as nothing more than a tool to gain more power. But when the Governor shows up to take Oli back to the barrier, she discovers a horrible truth: her mother used Oli as a bartering chip to save herself, and she’s about to do it again.

Oli finds an ally in a scarred boy named Matty—and now he’s her only hope of survival. Unfortunately, the only way to safety is to head into a city full of Screamers. Along the way, they encounter Luca, a man who realizes Oli’s true potential, and he’s going to use her to cement his position as a powerful leader.

Forced to go The Station, a true house of horrors that might hold the answer to the illness, Oli must save her friends and get out before she becomes the next test subject.

Author Interview: Sonia Poynter

Sonia-Poynter__Author PhotoHi, Sonia! Congratulations on the 2nd edition of your YA fantasy, The Last Stored. Thank you for coming by to spend a little time with me and my readers. We’re looking forward to learning a little bit more about you and your work.

  1. When did you first begin to write?

I started writing in high school, but put it on the back burner because I didn’t think I was smart enough. (Often, we stop doing our passion because of that inner voice knocking us around.) I picked writing back up after my kids started leaving the nest. I found I had a knack for it and actually regretted not doing it sooner. If I have any advice to give, it would be to don’t allow that inner voice tear you down, instead keep practicing and learning!

  1. What was your inspiration for the story, The Last Stored?

Us writers are constantly asking ourselves what if questions and observing details around us that others don’t necessarily notice or care about, but often we fall into our own heads, creating stories, characters, and worlds. We live in two places—one foot in reality, the other in our imagination. Sometimes those dreams come together and our fingers can’t work fast enough to get the story out. That was the Last Stored for me.

I grew up in the forest, traipsing under fallen logs and splashing through creeks. A part of me, no matter where I am, is always there. Something about the forest, with its earthy smell, and peaceful sounds contains magic. That got me to thinking, what if, I found a door to another world and a girl was stored on Earth to save that world. Don’t we all feel like we don’t belong, that we are meant for greater things! Amber Megan Peel feels that, and deeply, and a boy is about to bring her home, to Tali!

Look around you, life is filled with magic, we simply need to believe it!

  1. Who is your favorite character in the story, and who was the most difficult to write?

Chaney is my favorite character to write for, I found him likeable, easy, and calm. He’s a sort of big brother—Viking, and who doesn’t want to have that type of guy around? He was the polar opposite of the whirlwind that is Lin.

Who was the most difficult? That would be Amber, she was so much like me, an underachiever, she never fit in, she always was looking for something more, that I found it difficult to share so much of me on the page. I’m a guarded person, but writing her helped me to breakdown those walls.

  1. Did you have to do any research for this book?

Does my life count, lol? Most places in the book are mishmash of local areas. I did change their names because they didn’t quite match up. And dealing with grief, that was something that I knew first hand because of the loss of my own father. Writing for her really helped me to deal the heartache.

  1. What do you hope your readers will take away from your story?

Hope and Magic. Look for the unexpected and realize we are all made for bigger, more glorious things! Swaro!!

  1. Sometimes in writing, the scenes don’t go where you expected them to go, and your characters don’t act the way you intended them to act. Did you experience anything like this in the writing of The Last Stored?

Sure! I am a plotter. Often, I plan out my books backwards. I know the beginning, and I know the ending, I just need to get my characters there, but like real people they have other plans and ideas. They get into mischief, and send me down plot holes. At first Amber wanted a complete different ending. After a long discussion she agreed and well, I won’t give it away, but you can find out for yourself since, I have the alternate ending included in this edition.

  1. When is your favorite time to write and where is your favorite writing place?

I love to write in the daytime and afternoon, with a glass of ice tea, while nibbling on a fudge-round. I have a serious chocolate cake addiction. All of this is done in my office which has two big windows and they look out over one-hundred-year-old trees. A nest family of squirrels often watches me. (Chocolate cake, squirrels, and trees, are my favorite!)

  1. What is your next project?

I am currently working on the second draft of a book tentatively called, I AM ABLE. I hope to be finished with it by late summer. It still needs a third draft, betas, and critique partner edits.

Quick blurb – The year is 1947, the year has always been and will always be 1947. While the sleepy community of Pleasant Valley lives a sheltered existence, free from the Commies who lurk beyond their protective wall, sixteen-year-old Able McCants discovers the monsters aren’t just on the outside. (First draft complete.)

About Sonia’s current book:

Cover

After the sudden death of her parents, making it through the day is a struggle for Amber. In the midst of her grief, an exquisite bird perches on her garden fence and shows her visions of a vivid landscape and a dark lord slouching upon a throne. She thinks the visions are tied to her sorrow. But when a boy appears to tell her she’s the last of her kind, she wonders if she’s just lost her mind.

Cree of Din is tasked with one job: Bring Amber home. For seven years, Cree has trained as her protector, and it is the ultimate responsibility. Failure means Amber’s certain death. The Returning has begun.

Amber and Cree must return to Tali, a world of unimaginable splendor and equally unimaginable horror, and defeat the dark lord, Lorthis. If they can’t, not only will Tali plunge into darkness, but so will Earth.

Sonia Poynter writes books with a common thread of wonder. She found that golden string under the crumpled leaves of her favorite tree when she was but a child, since then she has been unraveling it and weaving it onto the pages of her books. Her first book, The Last Stored, was published through Anaiah Press.

Blessings,

Linda

Cecily Hastings fails to escape her captor when he gambles her away in a game of dice. Now, instead of getting her first taste of freedom, she’s rotting in a cell on the Hellbound, a pirate ship under the command of Captain Finnigan Worley. Cecily, however, has no plans of sticking around with a captain known for his heartless deeds.

With the Royal Navy closing in, she must decide if she’s willing to fight beside Captain Worley or turn him over to the gallows for a chance at her own freedom.

Interview:

Stephanie, thank you for stopping by my blog today to answer a few questions for my readers about your new book, Unanchored. 

  1. Is this your first book?

Nope! Actually, when I first took the plunge toward becoming a writer, I started with a YA fantasy. It was about a group of teenagers who fought nightmares in the dream world. Not knowing a whole lot about the publishing process, I just jumped in headfirst and wrote the first two books in the series. It did not query well… At the time, it was my only idea, so I put a lot of weight on it succeeding. When it didn’t, I was pretty sure my writing career was doomed. Luckily, my childhood love for pirates and need for a high seas adventure took over my brain!

  1. What was your inspiration for the story, Unanchored?

This is a tough one to pinpoint. I feel like so many different ideas came together to create this story that it’s hard to narrow down my inspirations. For one, I am obsessed with antiheroes. They just always have the best banter (which is my most favorite thing)! I was watching ABC’s “Once Upon A Time” and really loved what they did with Captain Hook. I wanted to see if I could balance the image of a notoriously bad villain with a seemingly good heart. I didn’t do much developing of the idea until I laid in bed one night and got a very clear image of a girl passing a biscuit through cell bars to a prisoner on a pirate ship—someone she previously hated. That image made it from the first draft to the final copy of my book, so it must have been good enough inspiration!

  1. Who is your favorite character in the story, and who was the most difficult to write?

I think Captain Finnigan Worley (Finn) is my favorite. He’s always got a comeback for everything. He’s both cocky when it suits him and desperately empathetic. He has a really tough job with a very intimidating image to maintain, but behind closed doors, he’s just a regular guy who sometimes has food stuck in his teeth and would love nothing more than to get a cat for his ship.

Cecily, my heroine, has proved the most difficult to write, only because there have been so many different versions of her throughout the editing process. She has to react to an incredibly unusual situation in a natural way—but what’s really natural when you’ve been taken by some super-weird pirates?  

  1. Did you have to do any research for this book?

Yeppers! But honestly, that was one of my favorite phases! I got a few pirate books to look at culture, watched some shows/movies/documentaries, and even watched tutorials on sailing ships. The history of the Golden Age of Piracy is so fascinating! While there’s not a whole lot of historical figures/situations in Unanchored, there will be in the next book. My husband and I keep saying we want to take a pilgrimage to all the places my crew has traveled—up the coasts of Ireland and Wales—and down to the gorgeous Caribbean. I can’t imagine anything better!

  1. What do you hope your readers will take away from your story?

Honestly, I just want them to have fun. Life is so serious, and I love books that take me away on an adventure, introduce me to new friends, and give me hope in dark moments. That’s what I want Unanchored to do for my readers.

  1. Which do you find easier during the editing process, being the editor or being the author?

So far, I’ve found this to vary depending on the book. With my pirates, I thought editing was a lot of fun! I could not stop tweaking scenes, adding things here or there, or diving into the nitty gritty of sentence structure. However, I recently finished writing a women’s fiction. The last 2/3 of that story just flew right out of my fingertips! Now that I’m finished, I just stare at the document with no clue as to how to even edit it. Which is bad. Because my career is in editing. J

  1. Sometimes in writing, the scenes don’t go where you expected them to go, and your characters don’t act the way you intended them to act. Did you experience anything like this in the writing of Unanchored?

Oooooh, yes. Honestly, those are my favorite things about writing! I love it when a character’s personality is stronger than my idea for them. When they throw me an unexpected scene, it just fuels me to play around with it and let them drive the story. Those always seem to be the strongest scenes too! One of my favorite “unexpected things” about Unanchored is my dear cabin boy Nikolaus. I never planned for the kid to even be a part of the story, and he just showed up and became one of the three main characters! I even have ideas brewing to give him a spinoff one day!

  1. What is your next project?

           Next, I’m going to work on a sequel and take these miscreants down to the Caribbean to stir up some trouble with a few notorious scallywags.

            I am also working on a women’s fiction. It’s about a 30-year-old woman named Josie whose emotionally abusive husband sends her packing after finding out she’s pregnant. Living with her parents, unemployed, and spending her last few dollars on an intense craving—a corn dog from the county fair, Josie runs into two friends from high school she’s lost touch with. As they chat, they discover that none of their lives panned out quite the way they had expected them to. They’d always heard that their thirties were supposed to be the best days of their lives, but they’re just not having it. The trio moves in together with one goal in mind: fix their messy lives before they turn 31. It’s a story of friendship, fresh starts, and a deep love affair with fried food.

Interview with N.N.Light, Author of Princess of the Light

About the book: 

Mary Miller never thought much about destiny until God’s Archangel and Messenger, Gabriel, appears. Gabriel reveals she is destined to vanquish Darkness by spreading the Light and she has a revelation: she is the key.

Her first assignment is to restore the soul of a homeless man known only as the Walking Man.  She’s thrust face to face with evil all the while losing her heart to her new love, Joe Deacons. Can she win the battle the Lord placed her in without losing all she loves?

My conversation with N.N.Light, otherwise known as Mrs N:

Mrs N, I have learned a lot about you through our on-line friendship, but I’m a curious person. As Paul Harvey used to say, I want to know the rest of the story.

I know you and Mr N observed your tenth wedding anniversary this summer. How did you celebrate?

Yes we did and to celebrate we went on a summer vacation.  We hadn’t been away on vacation in over three years.  We visited a lovely town and took the train.  It was so nice to get away from the busyness of life and just unplug.  We ate delicious food and met some nice people.

You’ve said you like Pink Floyd, that Love Actually is your favorite movie, and that you like to watch television. What is your favorite TV show?

Right now, we are watching as much college football and all things NFL.  It’s our favorite time of the year!  Other than that, we love Big Bang Theory, Antiques Roadshow, Columbo and Corner Gas.

You describe yourself as an imaginative baker who loves to try new recipes including bread, cookies, cakes and pastries. What has been your greatest success, and what was your biggest failure?

My journey to becoming an imaginative baker has been a rocky one.  My greatest success would have to be my homemade fudge.  It’s a humorous story, if you have a moment.  When I first married MR N, I wasn’t much of a baker.  Sure, I could make brownies or cookies but those were usually from a box.  Once I married a chef (or my own personal Emeril), I was inspired to try new things. 

 MR N told me he loved fudge and I went to work to try to make it for him.  I found a recipe online and followed the directions to the letter.  Something went wrong and it didn’t harden up.  I was crestfallen but MR N told me, “It’ll be perfect chocolate sauce for ice cream.” 

I was determined and for the next five years tried to make creamy chocolate fudge.  One year for Christmas, I decided to try it again.  I had become a better baker and knew more about the chemistry behind candy-making.  I made it, crossed my fingers and voila I made fudge!  It was, and continues to be, my greatest baking achievement.

 My biggest failure has to be the time I tried to make No Knead Bread.  I read about it in the New York Times and I thought that recipe was right up my alley.  Kneading is hard work and sometimes my arms are too sore to make bread.  So I followed the recipe to the letter and it was a complete disaster!  It looked nothing like the picture and tasted like soggy chalk.  MR N was the tester and he tried to stay positive.  I tasted it and it was disgusting!  I threw it out and never tried it again. 

 Lesson learned, if you want bread you have to knead it!

 As an avid NFL fan, which team is your favorite?

 I am a devoted fan of the Minnesota Vikings.  I grew up in Minnesota and I bleed purple and gold.  I am also a big fantasy football fan so I have player favorites from various teams. We have the NFL Ticket so we get a chance to watch all the games on Sunday. 

Who is your favorite writer, and why?

I have several but one of my favorites is Ernest Hemingway.  I was exposed to him when I was fifteen years old.  I read Farewell to Arms and I was instantly hooked.  He was a great writer and he wrote what he wanted.  He didn’t care what anyone else thought.  I love the way he grabs ahold of the reader and doesn’t let go until the final page.  A true inspiration to me as a writer.

What is your all-time favorite book, and why?

Geez Linda, you really ask the tough questions. Just kidding, as a writer, I have many favorite books.  I think my go-to book when I am in need of a getaway has got to be The DaVinci Code.  I love mysteries and it is fun to imagine the possibilities Dan Brown creates.  Death, ancient sects, art, a puzzle to solve and all before they police catch up to them. Time well spent in my opinion.

I can’t wait to read Princess of the Light. Based on the blurb, it sounds as if Mary has to choose between love, even though that love may be somewhat questionable, and her sense of duty. If you had to face a choice between Mr N and what you felt you had been called to do, how would you deal with the situation?

 Wow, talk about a hard question.  Truth be told, I am sure God would never have me choose between my destiny and MR N.  MR N and I work best together spreading the Light.  However, if I had to choose, I would choose MR N.  He is my soul mate, the love of my life and I love him deeply.  Together, he and I would figure out a way to do what I have been called to do.  It’s a tough call but in the end, I would choose love.  You’ll have to read my book to see what Mary chooses.

What is ahead for you as a writer?

Being an independent author, I am working hard on marketing my book.  It’s a full-time job telling people about spreading the Light.  But I am up for it because I truly feel that my book can change people’s lives.

 I am currently writing book two and outlining three more in the series.  I am also writing daily on my blog.

I have one last question. When David and I come for dinner, what will be on the menu?

 I asked MR N about that and he said he would love to make you a five star gourmet meal.  Whatever you and David would like, he will create. I, of course, will be making a delightful dessert for us.

Mrs N, thanks for spending a little time with me today. Best of luck with Princess of the Light and with your continuing writing career. I look forward to that gourmet meal when we can make it from Texas up to Canada.

I just wanted to thank Linda for graciously having me on her blog today.  If you feel led, please go and pick up Princess of the Light.  It is available at many retailers around the world.  Part of the proceeds goes directly to food banks.  Together, we can spread the Light and end hunger!

Blessings,

Linda

  1. If you could tell my readers only one thing about yourself, what would you want them to know?

I moved around a lot during my childhood–all across the country, in fact. My constantly mobile childhood shaped who I am as an adult. I used to think that was bad–but now I know it’s actually a good thing. Not only did it broaden my experiences as a child, but it helped shape who I am as a writer.

  1. Who is your favorite author and why?

My favorite middle grade writer is Louis Sachar (author of HOLES and the Wayside School series). He writes with such a wonderful wit and respect for this age group. HOLES is one of those books that you can reread year after year and you still marvel at how the story is pieced together.

I also love to read women’s fiction. One of my favorite writers is Daphne du Maurier, the author of REBECCA (which was also an Alfred Hitchcock film). Her writing is beautiful without ever being flowery, and she is a master at creating psychological suspense.

 

  1. Did that author or another author influence your style, and if so, how?

 

Louis Sachar is definitely an inspiration to me, especially when writing more humorous middle grade fiction. I also love the Babysitters Club books from the 1980s and 90s.

 

  1. How did you connect with Anaiah Press?

 

Jessica Schmeidler (my editor) and I started chatting after she read a blog post I had written about a Twitter pitch contest I had entered. I ended up querying her with a different project that I hoped might be a good fit for the Adventures imprint. Jessica ended up requesting a full manuscript (which made me so excited!) and later on that month offered me a publishing contract for the book. I was so excited! I knew based on Jessica’s enthusiasm for the project that Anaiah Press was the right home for my book. A writer dreams of that editor who really connects with their work, and I feel so blessed to have found that with Jessica and with Anaiah Press.

 

  1. Was the editing process more or less difficult than you expected?

 

Here’s the funny part: I’m a professional copyeditor. I edit nonfiction projects during the day as part of my job. I knew there would be a few things that needed to be fixed. I was shocked when I received my first round of edits and saw how thorough Jessica had been with editing! The suggestions were terrific, and I learned more about style and grammar in that one round of editing than I had in many of my college classes! After we got through that one big editing round, the following rounds were a bit smoother and quicker.

 

 

  1. What advice would you give to new writers?

 

Don’t ever give up. Ever! Let me repeat that: don’t ever give up! There is a saying out there that the successful writers are the writers who just never gave up. And it’s true. Querying your writing out to editors and agents is in itself a natural-selection process for which writers are truly the most dedicated to their craft and the road to publication. While it’s okay to work on different projects and even set some aside for a time, it’s never okay to give up writing entirely. Find a mentor to coach you through those tough times when rejection letters get you down, but keep on walking down the road. Just improve a little bit with each setback. Learn something every time to give you a bigger edge the next time.

 

  1. What’s next after Liberty Belle? Can we expect further adventures for Savannah, or something else?

 

I think Savannah has quite a few tales left to tell. She’s definitely found her place at her new school, but next year Savannah will be moving with her classmates to a new middle school. Anything is possible. And bless her heart, Savannah can’t keep herself out of trouble for long.

About the book: 

On the same day she turns twelve years old, Savannah moves away from everything she’s known in sweet, sunny Georgia to preppy Washington D.C. Not only will she miss her best friends Katie and Tessa, Savannah will start a new school. She soon discovers that her schoolmates love to brag—about their clothes, their parents’ governmental connections, and even who has the in with the school authorities.

Unhappy and lonely, Savannah decides if she can’t make life better, she can at least make it sound that way. Soon she is living in the childhood home of George Washington, riding in the limo of the vice president’s daughter, and even moving into the former Luxembourg embassy.

All is well until she learns that her true friends from Georgia are coming for a visit. Now Savannah must create the life she’s been talking about in her letters—and fast! Will Savannah find herself or lose her friends?
