Today for My Favorite Things I have Inara Scott on for an interview. Inara is a local author I’ve had the pleasure of meeting a few times. She’s an awesome person as well as a fantastic writer!
Welcome to the My Favorite Things Event!
Can you tell us 5 things about Delcroix Academy: The Candidates that you think best describes it?
Mystery, romance, self-discovery, super powers, no easy answers.
And can you tell us 10 things about yourself so we can get to know you better?
Ten things? I’m not sure I can think of 5 interesting things about me! But here goes…
1. I hate the cold.
2. My name means mermaid.
3. I’m Latvian.
4. I believe in Happily Ever After
5. I’m embarrasingly in love with my husband.
6. I have two amazing kids.
7. I have a little white dog named Rosco who sits on my lap while I write.
8. I am a geek.
9. I have dark blonde hair and am terribly vain about the fact that it’s natural.
10. I refuse to read books with sad endings.
How did the idea for Delcroix Academy come to you?
I love science fiction and fantasy, and was noticing that all my favorite books had very clear good guys and bad guys. I wanted to write a book where things weren’t so clear — where the good and bad were all mixed up together. Kinda like high school. ;-)
If you could meet any author (dead or alive) who would you want to meet?
Anne Lamott. I love her essays, and think Bird by Bird is the best writing memoir ever.
What is one book your constantly recommending to people?
My favorite books are the Dragonriders of Pern series (Anne McCaffrey) and David Eddings’ Belgariad. I heartily recommend both series to anyone, young or old.
If you could travel to one place in the whole world where would you travel to?
If you could have one superpower what would you pick?
What do you have planned for the future? How many books are planned for Delcroix Academy and do you have any other projects your allowed to share?
So far, we’ve just got one more Delcroix book in the works, but I’ve got a third one outlined and am hoping to start writing it soon. I am also just finishing up another YA that I’m really excited about. Like Delcroix, it’s got mystery and romance, but unlike Delcroix, there are a few dead bodies involved. Hope to be able to share more about it soon!!
Thanks for stopping by Inara!
Thank you Candace!!
