Questions for author Mia Sheridan

1 – Have you always wanted to be a writer?

No! Actually I sort of fell into this job unexpectedly, and no one is more surprised than me! 🙂

2 – When you start a series of books – do you know in advance who the couples who will appear in the following books will be? Do you know what the plot will be?

So far, the only books I’ve written with follow-up characters are Where the Blame Lies/Where the Truth Lives, and Archer’s Voice/Travis, and no, I didn’t plan either of them. I just ended up feeling like part of the story was untold and decided to dive in!

3 – Did you write a book and decide not to publish it?

I’ve started a few books that didn’t really grab me. I have 2 or 3 that have about 20K words written. Maybe I’ll go back to them one day, maybe not!

4 – Is there a topic you will never write about? If so, what is it?

I can’t think of anything, and I try to never say never because I don’t want to stifle my creativity and any potential plots that might come to me. 😀

5 – By what do you choose a cover for a book?

By the genre. I like to make sure the “type” of book it is, is immediately clear to readers.

6 – Where did you get the inspiration for the stories?

From anywhere and everywhere! I’ve gotten ideas from songs, stories I’ve heard, or just from a setting or a type of character that pops into my head and I start ruminating on.

7 – Who is your favorite couple you wrote about?

Hmm… that’s hard, but Calder and Eden have a special place in my heart.

8 – How long does it take you to write one book?

Two months to write, and one month to edit, so three months total.

9 – What is your favorite genre to read?

Romance! Always! But suspense is a close second.

10 – Who are your favorite writers?

I’ve always loved Stephen King. He’s an all-time favorite. Of course I love Nora Roberts and Danielle Steele and all the romance greats. 🙂

11- If you could turn one of your books into a movie – which book would you choose?

Becoming Calder/Finding Eden, or Where the Blame Lies/Where the Truth Lives.
