We have today the awesome Dawn White. Hi Dawn thanks for visiting. Dawn tell us a little bit about yourself.
At the moment I live in Southern California. My husband is in the military and my three daughters keep me super busy! I home school my three daughters and in between cleaning, being a wife, a mommy, and a teacher I find a few minutes in between to work on “The Damned Series.”
How did you decided to enter the world of writing?
I have always been a writer but didn’t start writing professionally until I took a book I had started writing when I had 5 surgeries and was stuck in bed or a wheel chair for 6 months. This is when the series began. And I haven’t been able to go a day without writing ever since. ;)
What does your family think of your writing?
My YA books my older daughter loves, my husband likes that I’m bringing the monster back into the vampire genre. And my mom and dad well I don’t want them to read it and have stated so in my acknowledgements. ;) lol
Where do you get your ideas?
Well “The Damned Series” was born from a completely different book I was writing, I took a post- apocalyptic world and turned it even more on its head. With this world I changed everything into the series. I might finish the post-apocalyptic book one day. But I want to finish this series before I get anything else out. ;)
Can you tell us a little about your book?
Faeries, Werewolves, Strigoi (vampires), Greek gods, Tribes people, and hybrids Oh MY! Lol Yes it’s a huge cast of everything Paranormal/mythological. It’s a dark bloody adventure that has you sitting on the edge of your seat the entire time you are reading it. If you liked Wingless and Damned just Wait! Wingless and Forsaken will and has blown my fans minds! And yes the series is a dark paranormal romance! But that being said this isn’t your average lovey dovey eeewy gooey love story. Just wait and see. ;)
What is your writing process?
I don’t really have a process. I just sit down and write. I have to have my cup of coffee, music and nothing else really. J I don’t outline anything, I sort do I guess, an open ended outline. I know what I have to accomplish in every book but they are just guidelines and loose ones at that. ;)
What was the hardest part for you when working on your book?
Writing the love scenes, it’s very primal and I need my mind and concentration when I am “showing” you the act of them making love. J
What influenced or inspired you to write?
I started as a teenager writing short stories and poetry, as a fourteen year old I had three of my poems published and really have only written for fun since.
Was there a scene that you didn’t add or you removed in your finished work?
No what I wrote is what I kept. Other than a few edits here or there nothing has been changed really.
Do you have a favorite character (from you're book)? Why?
Lea and Alexander have captured me. You can’t have one without the other. I love how Lea fights with herself over (no spoilers) her inner turmoil’s and how Alexander is her rock even when she doesn’t seem to need one. She may seem crass and rude at times but she is just getting used to the fact that she’s a monster! J
Do you already know what to write next? Can you tell us?
Book Three Wingless and Shattered is almost done! And it’s huge! But I will have it done with Edits by the end of April and in y’alls hands probably end of April early May. J
Where can we find more information about you and your books?
I have a very interactive relationship with my fans. In fact some of the people that have contacted me after reading my book/books have and are considered VERY good friends who I have stayed in contact with on a Daily Basis! ;)
Do you have any last words?
I love meeting people and the more the merrier. So look me up, stop by and say Hi or whats up and I swear to you I will answer you and hopefully it will be the start of another beautiful friendship! <3 J
Dawn I enjoyed learning all about you and your books. Thank you for visiting.
