Author Interview and Giveaway – Calinda B

Posted on Sunday, May 19, 2013

Can you tell us about your main character? Marissa Engles is an artist. She’s extremely honest, serious, loves her dog, a Doberman named Sober Dober and really wants something different out of life. She craves excitement. She lost her parents to a plane crash when she was 15. She’s hidden away in her world of art ever since. She meets Daniel Navid on the day of her birthday, at age 26. Sparks fly – literally – from her fingers to his. He awakens something strange in her. Turns out she’s a Light Rebel whose abilities were taken away from her at an early age. And Daniel Navid? Turns out he’s a dangerous man. I’ll let you read the book to find out the rest.

How did you develop your plot and characters? I always start with an idea. In this case, the idea had nothing to do with the book itself. It was just a launch pad. Launch I did and the story unfolded as I wrote. I usually aim for some sort of resolution and then just start writing.

Will you write others in this same genre? I’ve already started on the next book, The Beckoning of Broken Things.

How important do you think villains are in a story? Oh, I love a good villain. The villains create conflict and intrigue. Hopefully, they stir emotion in the reader and add tension to the book.

Do you have to travel much concerning your book(s)? I travel in general and yes, it influences the books. I’m an avid scuba diver and travel to some very unique places to dive. Places and situations always factor in my stories.

What are your current writing projects now? As mentioned above, I’m writing The Beckoning of Broken Things. It starts in a mental hospital. That’s all I’m going to say at this moment. My lips are sealed.

Are you reading any interesting books at the moment? Tahereh Mafi’s Unravel Me. She’s a brilliant young writer and the story is intriguing.
