New Interview Randee Green - Author

New Interview Randee Green - Author
Q1. Tell us about yourself. What are your favorite books to read?
A. I'd have to say that I’m a bit of an eccentric. I love professional wrestling, I act at a local haunted attraction, and I’m a crazy cat lady. I’d rather write than doing anything else – luckily my boyfriend is a gamer so he can play video games while I write, and we are both happy. 
My favorite books to read (and write) are mysteries. I will read everything from cozy mysteries to crime thrillers. I like trying to figure out the killer and the motive before the reveal. 
Q2. Where did the inspiration to write come from?
A. I first realized that I wanted to be a writer when I was in second grade. Every day, my teacher, Mrs. Ziegler would read to us for about half an hour while we calmed down after we came in from recess. As an avid lover of books since before I could read, this was my favorite part of the school day. I will never forget the day that Mrs. Ziegler began reading LITTLE HOU…

Interviewing Author Matt LucasQ1. Tell us about yourself. What are your favorite books to read?
A. I’m a young author originally from Pittsburgh. I grew up on the action and adventure stories like Indiana Jones, Batman comics, and James Bond. Early in life writing was my hobby and I loved creating my own stories. Now, in adulthood, I’m enthralled with epic tales like Game of Thrones and Angels and Demons, which has influenced much of my writing.
Q2. Where did the inspiration to write come from?
A. I was 23, working 9-5 and made a decision that I wanted more out of life. I’ve always daydreamt and had stories built up in my heart that kept knocking to get out. I was dealing with some personal struggles at the time and came to the realization that life is too short to dedicate it to anything that you don’t love. I didn’t love my work, but I loved my writing so I started writing.
Q3. How did you come up with the titles of your books?
A. My primary series is titled “The Shadow Gospels”. I’m a C…

Marilyn Monroe turns 93
Marilyn Monroe turns 93 this year in June. First, it has been 57 years.  That’s how long she has been gone for.

Marilyn Monroe was born on June 1, 1926, And Died in her bed on August 5, 1962, They say that she died of a barbiturate overdose, but I don’t believe that I have watched all kinds of conspiracy theories I believe she was murdered because she knew too much or she really killed herself by a barbiturate overdose we will never know how she died that night on August 5, I just find it A little strange how she died right after singing happy birthday to John F Kennedy at her birthday celebration.
I am a big fan of Marilyn Monroe I have a Marilyn Monroe Calendar that my sister got me for Christmas I Also have a glass decoration of her and some book my grandma got me for Christmas My other sister got me a Marilyn Monroe water bottle and lunch box.
I have seen all of Marilyn Monroe movies I love all her movies but my favorite is how to …

Interviewing Author Shannon Taylor VannatterQ1. Tell us about yourself. What are your favorite books to read?
A. I started reading clean romance when I was fourteen. I married my high school sweetheart and worked as a hairdresser for ten years. Once insurance became important, I went to work at a bank and the corporate offices of a large fragrance company. After our son was born, I became a stay at home mom. I love reading Christian Contemporary Romance.
Q2. Where did the inspiration to write come from?
A. There came a time when I couldn’t find anything clean anymore when I was in my early thirties, so I decided to write what I wanted to read. My characters kept praying and talking to God and I realized I was writing Christian romance instead of merely clean. It took me nine and a half years to get published.
Q3. How did you come up with the titles of your books?
A. I start with a working title that fits the theme of the book. Sometimes, I change it as the book evolves. The publisher often…
