Interview with EJ Wood

What are your five favorite books, and why?
Anything with a great story line that surprises you on every page. I like books with mystery that get me thinking, who was it? Why did they do it? Anything that makes me try and solve a murder before the characters that I am reading.
I love reading psychological romances, crime thrillers with a touch of history and fact.
I enjoy reading Kathy Reichs and of course Harry Potter, who doesn't?
What do you read for pleasure?
I enjoy reading to learn, so anything educational that aspires me to write is up my street!
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I am a bit of a dinosaur I´m afraid and only have a laptop for now.
What do your fans mean to you?
I love to hear from all my readers. I try to reply to every email personally. Your positive influence is very much appreciated.
I couldn’t have done it without my fans and family and if anyone were to ask me if I could write the same story all over again? Id say no, because you cannot re-write life. I seize the day and you should too. Carpe Diem.
What are you working on next?
Next? We will just have to wait and see...
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
When I am not writing I spend my time working and riding my motorcycle.
Describe your desk
Think of a very crowded and jumbled but oddly mud-free pig sty. Usually full of invoices, writing ideas, the latest copy of the writers yearbook and a few girly accessories with Star Treks Batleth hanging on the wall and a few choice weapons in display cabinets. I do receive a few looks now and then but my whole work shop is different.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I have traveled quite extensively including Australia and currently reside in Spain. I believe growing up around different cultures and experiences has greatly influenced my writing style and I hope to incorporate that in my stories.
When did you first start writing?
I started writing as far back as I can remember, it was and sometimes is a form of escapism, to create a character whose life is not my own. Sad I know but I find joy in looking back over my past work. My own personal diary. Life has not always been a box of chocolates.
What's the story behind your latest book?
You will have to wait and see. Do you dare?
