Interview with Britt DeLaney

Published 2020-01-03.
Who are your favorite authors?
My tastes are a mix of old school and new blood. I love Ray Bradbury and Sarah J. Maas, Cassandra Clare and Nora Roberts, Laurell K. Hamilton and Jayne Ann Krentz.
What do your fans mean to you?
Are you kidding? They are my lifeblood. Seriously. Every comment (even the critical ones), every review, every time they jump in excitement over a plot twist that made me squeal as I wrote it - it's all so affirming and so wonderful. My fans are the best.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Not knowing where it will take you. I've had an entire book planned out in my head, painstakingly outlined on paper, plotted out in great detail with multiple references on the computer screen, and suddenly a wild idea will come along and reroute the whole thing, opening up a stream of brand-new possibilities. I also love it when I reread a draft of something and my character reminds me that he or she would never have said or done this. That gives me the opportunity to find a better way to do it, or write in some new motivation that would make them say or do it. It's a fascinating process and I never get tired of it.
If you couldn't be a writer, what would you choose to be?
I actually have a degree in Theatre, and love being on stage, so I'd probably choose an actor's life. That, or I'd really love to be a cultural anthropologist. People are fascinating all over the world, and all across time. Everyone has a story, and I love to hear them.
When did you first start writing?
I have never not been writing.
