Interview with Holli Ballard

When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I have two pre-teens that keep me very busy homeschooling them. I also love to cook anytime I can.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
There are so many great websites and Facebook pages that introduce all types of books at different prices.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes, I was 7 and it was about a turkey named Tom who fell in love with a 'girl' turkey.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
I have been reading since I was five so I cant pinpoint the first that I read but I can remember the first that had a mind blowing impact on me: Pet Cemetery by Stephen King. I was 11.
How do you approach cover design?
I try to make the cover match the overall feel of the book and have something eye-catching on it.
Describe your desk
It is a lap tray that is big enough to hold my laptop, a drink, my mouse and earbuds when I need them.
What's the story behind your latest book?
It is the second in a Trilogy, Shifting Alliances: Reborn, Redeemed, and Returned. A collection of shifters finding their mates while trying to prevent a corrupt group hell bent on destroying everything they believe in.
What are you working on next?
Returned, book 3 from the trilogy.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
The words, "Mommy, what is for breakfast?"
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
When I get near the end of a book and see that all of the blood, sweat, tears and cola have all been worth it.
