Interview with E.A. Weston

What is your writing process?
I usually write down the basics of my story in a note book with character descriptions and which characters will interact with each other and in what way. Then I write the story as I go, reading over each chapter when I am done to see if it makes sense and follows my story line.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
I don't remember the first story I ever read but I remember not starting to read recreationally until I was a teen and it was Sweet Valley High
How do you approach cover design?
I want a cover that speaks to people in some way. With Scarred Hearts I wanted to portray the way my characters were feeling and give a little bit of intrigue to my readers.
What are your five favorite books, and why?
I Don't have favorite books but I have certain authors I will read religiously.
What do you read for pleasure?
Romance, Paranormal Romance, Crime, Time slip novels and ghost stories.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I have my iPad Air which I love :)
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Dublin Ireland so for me it plays a roll in my writing especially when I choose a place or I am describing somewhere, I usually think of somewhere back home.I live in Southern California now so I have plenty of places to influence me.
When did you first start writing?
I have always wanted to write a book it has been one of my life goals, I started writing years ago but never finished a story and scrapped most of them but in 2013 I decided to complete a book even if it was just for myself, to say that I did it. Now I have it finished and I am writing the sequel.
What's the story behind your latest book?
My book Scared Hearts, is about an eighteen year old girl (Bailey) who finds her best friend dead after committing suicide. She leaves town to go live with her dad whom she hasn't seen or heard from in two years and tries to get over the loss of her friend and adjust to a new life without any familiar faces to help her. Bailey meets twins Knox and Max Porter and sparks fly with one of them but it's not easy for either of them to be in a relationship as they are both dealing with hurt, pain and anger. However, things get better and sparks turn to flame but with every good romance it's not as easy as that.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I wanted to put a story out there that would allow people to escape their daily lives for a little while and enjoy something that is easy to read but keeps you wanting more. I chose to go the indie route because for me it allows me to work at my own pace and stay true to myself and my readers.
What do your fans mean to you?
My fans mean the world to me, without them I wouldn't be able to keep writing because it's nice to be able to write for someone who enjoys what I do as much as me.
