Interview with Gypsie Merlinne

What do you read for pleasure?
I read many different genres, but love historical romance and supernatural stories involving vampires, werewolves, witches and the like.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in a small southern farm town, so I am quite familiar with dirt roads, honky-tonks, hunting, fishing and Friday night high school football among other things. I believe this gives my writing a down to earth feel, to which many people can relate.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Thanks to Smashwords, I have been able to publish my own book. Otherwise, I may have never been able to share my stories with the world.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
For me, when I read a book, I want to be able to feel what the character is feeling. I want to be able to immerse myself in the story. I strive to give that same feeling to my readers. Making my readers 'feel' my story is my greatest joy of writing.
Who are your favorite authors?
If I have to name only a few, my favorites are Bertrice Small for so many of her fantastic stories, Charlaine Harris for her Sookie Stackhouse Series and Elle Jasper for her Riley Poe Series. These ladies just have a way of making you want more and more!
