So, on to the interview:
Hey Laurie, why don’t you introduce yourself first?
Hi, I am the author of the Moon Rising series, the sequel has just been released Sunrise to Sunset and will be quickly followed by another. I work as a full time teacher to adults to further their careers and write in the evenings and at weekends. I’m also a mother of one adorable little girl who I love to spend as much as I can with, she is my angel.
I also have many other titles coming out this year, and I hope they will just as successful as Moon Rising has been, it’s all so exciting and new to me. I started writing in November 2009 and I have been writing non-stop since then.
Moon Rising has gotten great reviews! How does that make you feel?
When did the book come to live for you?
Moon Rising came to life when the reviews started being placed on amazon.com and goodread.com. It’s been an adventure, and an amazing story in itself (but I won’t write about myself!). Nessy is very unique in the way she’s made and brought into the vampire world, I loved writing her character. Golden Horizons which is due out in the next couple of months, Nessy takes complete control which is amazing because so far everyone else has been her strength but I wanted to write something else into her character.
Have you always been a fan of vampires and stories about them?
What would you advise young writers?
Keep going and never give up on your dreams or the ability to write. No matter how many negative or critical reviews you get (and they hurt when you read them for the first time) do not give up, rise above them and think to yourself that you cannot please everyone but if you please even 1 person you have yourself a fan which will grow every single day.
What was your favourite book growing up?
I cannot answer this question without giving you a list that will be never ending. When I was growing up I was the one who would sit in the corner of the lounge with a book in my lap, I have always loved reading and I read anything and everything that I could grab. While my sisters and brothers were watching TV programmes I was engrossed inside a book, occasionally my mother had to remind me to eat!!
