Interview with Nicole Luiken

How many books are there in the Violet Eyes series?
Four: Violet Eyes, Silver Eyes, Angel Eyes and Golden Eyes. The first two titles were published by Simon & Schuster in 2001. They are out of print but still available as ebooks. In recent years I have continued the series and self-published books 3 & 4 (Angel Eyes and Golden Eyes). I plan to write at least one more Mike & Angel book.
Will there be a fifth book?
Yes. I'm planning to write a fifth Mike & Angel book sometime in the future. Check out my Facebook Author page for updates.
What do you read for pleasure?
I read a lot, about 200 books a year. (Really! Find me on Goodreads) I read fantasy, science fiction, paranormal romance, young adult and historical romance.
When did you first start writing?
I wrote my first novel when I was thirteen. I've always had a vivid imagination and loved making up stories, but what made me start writing seriously was reading Phyllis A. Whitney's Guide to Fiction Writing. It was summer vacation. I lived on a farm miles from the nearest small town and this was years before the internet. I was bored so why not write a novel? I loved it so much, I simply never stopped.
Who are your favorite authors?
I read a lot so I have a ton of favorite authors.
