Over the coming weeks I have interviews with some of my favourite authors! They each write different genres, so you’ll certainly find some new books to add to your TBR pile! First up we have Anabelle Bryant!
1. What genre do you write?
I write historical romance, Regency, England 1817. Everything about this time period fascinates me, except perhaps the plumbing and lack of solidified chocolate. Otherwise, I’m good. I love the fashion, etiquette, and courting customs associated with aristocracy. Call me when the time machine is ready.
2. Can you tell us about your latest book?
The final book in my debut trilogy is set to be released in early 2015. If you read To Love A Wicked Scoundrel or Duke of Darkness, you have met the hero of my new novel, Phineas Betcham, Viscount Fenhurst. He is a good-hearted boxer that is accustomed to helping everyone except himself…especially when it comes to the secret he holds locked in his heart.
3. Who is your favourite character and why?
I fall in love with my heroes, so in a way I think that makes me rather fickle, moving from one novel to the other. Right now I have started a new trilogy and the hero has definitely stolen my heart. Looking back, I think Devlin of Duke of Darkness, was my favorite.
4. Do you plot or just write and see where your characters take you?
I am not a plotter. I have a general idea in my head and am usually inspired by a small detail. Then my novel grows around that initial idea. I let the characters develop their own voices and idiosyncrasies and then write as the scenes come alive through the actions of my characters. They definitely tell me where the story needs to go.
5. When your favourite time to write?
Writing time is scarce. I am a full time educator and too busy for my own good. I grab writing time whenever the opportunity arises, but morning would be my chosen time to write. The ideas are fresh and I’m ready to spend the day with my novel.
6. Which writers inspire you?
I have an assortment of favorites. Some from years ago when I started reading historical romance: Kathleen Woodiwiss, Lisa Kleypas, Johanna Lindsey; and other newer favorites like Eloisa James, Sherry Thomas and Loretta Chase.
7. Where can we find you?
