Interview with Deanna Cox

When did you first start writing?
I've been scribbling all my life, really, since as far back as I can remember. When I was a kid I'd doodle cartoons of my friends and family, make up little comic strips and stories about them.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I find it's a good way to unleash all of the strange ideas that come into my head. I write about a wide variety of things, so it's always varied and enjoyable. It's also a nice way of communicating with people, knowing that they're reading (and hopefully enjoying!) my work.
Describe your desk
Organised chaos. I tend to keep my computer files perfectly organised, but I always have a huge pile of notes - scraps of stories scribbled onto whatever's available at the time - that's ready to topple over and cause a miniature avalanche. I'm right-handed, and make the mistake of putting said notes near my mouse hand, which means it's inevitable really. I also have a bespectacled Hello Kitty toy perched beneath my screen. It judges me and I find it guilts me into writing more.
What do you read for pleasure?
Mostly a weird and wonderful mix of romance, crime and horror. I try not to limit myself to one particular author, or even genre really. I'm one of those people who, when I'm not writing myself, I'll more often than not have a book or my e-reader in my hand.
What are you working on next?
I have several short stories in the pipeline, along with the beginnings of novel #2. We're talking Late Middle Ages fantasy ... sex, romance ... that's all I'm saying for now!
What is your writing process?
1. An idea arises.

2. I should really write down that idea.


4. ???

5. Publish!
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Cats and my work, usually in that order. There's also a husband thrown in there somewhere, but he mostly leaves me be until I've had my coffee! ;)
What do your fans mean to you?
Lots. I may not use Twitter and the like very often, but I'm quietly very thankful. They've given me an avenue to express myself that other 'normal' 9-5 jobs wouldn't, and for that I'm very grateful. E-hug!
