Yep Faith’s here to chat
T: Good Morning Faith thanks for joining me this morning. I hope the coffee is strong enough?
Definitely strong. I cannot start my morning without a few cups of strong Joe and a crossword puzzle to get the mind jumpstarted.
T: I promise for this set of questions I’m going to keep things fun and light (well light for me) so let’s get started.
T: When did you meet the love of your life?
About 8 years ago, I was fishing (online) and the man took the bait. We danced around each other for a few months since he lived out of town, but once we finally met in person, that was all she wrote. Well, not technically, since I’m still writing, but you know what I mean.
T: Can you tell us about your four- legged best friends? Cats? Dogs? Breeds?
I am a huge animal lover. I currently have two dogs. BeBe is a chow and golden lab mix. She looks like the Snuggle fabric softener bear. Charlie is a Jack Russell mixed with a Britney spaniel. She looks like a Jack Russell on steroids!
T: Have you ever gone back to the writing you did in high school to rewrite the stories or poems?
Unfortunately, no. Telling my age here, high school was over 30 years ago, so anything I wrote back then was on paper, and thus, lost in the many moves over the years.
T: How many stories come from your dreams?
Complete stories? Only 1. I do use snippets from my dreams and incorporate them into scenes in my books.
T: How crazy are the dreams you put to paper?
Honestly, I wish I could video tape my dreams so others could see the sh*t I see during the night. It’s like M. Night. Shamalamadingdong meets Stephen King…
T: What’s the craziest dream you’ve used?
The one where my best friend who was dressed in this killer black lacy sexy as f*ck dress tells me I have to sing to the empty swing next door. Even though I cannot sing in real life, in my dream I sing, and a ghost transforms into a little girl… There’s a lot more to it than that, and I’ve since changed up the story to being about a former marine seeing ghosts…
T: How many bikes have you owned?
When I was younger, I had two dirt bikes. Now I’m on my 2nd Harley. “Ride the wind, never coming back until I touch the midnight sun” Sorry, I sing Poison’s “Ride The Wind” when I think about hitting the road.
T: What authors are on your shelves?
Sherrilyn Kenyon, Karen Marie Moning, Janet Evanovich, Cassandra Clare. There are a slew of others that I own a few of their books, but with these, I have every book they’ve put out so far. Most of them are hardbacks.
T: Do you play trivia at home or out? Who plays with you?
I play at our local bar/restaurant hangout. It’s called Buzztime, and it’s nationwide. You don’t win prizes, it’s more for bragging rights than anything. The man helps me with answers when it’s something like sports. I have a few friends who are competitive, but then we help each other with the answers, because we’re nice like that.
T: Does all your writing have a paranormal element?
No. My first book was a contemporary little number. I also have a MM series, The Music Within.
T: Do you use any of your favorite places in the city in your novels?
Absolutely. I use Nashville in the MM series. The Stone Society is set in post-apocalyptic Atlanta, so I can embellish the details a little. I am a Georgia girl at heart.
T: How long does it take you to write a novel?
The shortest time has been 2 weeks. The words had been begging to be written, and they just flowed. The longest was just over a month. That’s the easy part. It’s the editing that takes forever.
T: What comes next?
Sixx, Book 7 in the Stone Society releases on July 7. Finding Me, Book 3 in The Music Within series is tentatively scheduled for the end of August, the first of September. I’m working on the Ghost story book as well, but it’s a work in progress.
T: Well Faith that’s all I have for you today? Until next time thanks again for joining me, now get back to work and write your next book.
Ha! Thanks for having me. I truly appreciate it…
