Interview with Sandy Ellis

What do you read for pleasure?
Gosh--all kinds of stuff. Nora Roberts and JD Robb, Laurell K. Hamilton, Darynda Jones, Janet Evanovich, Sophie Oak--the list is really pretty endless. I've always been an avid reader.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I like Nook. Not sure why, because Kindle and iBooks are pretty awesome, too.
Describe your desk
It's pretty much wherever I decide to put down my Mac and start writing. Could be the kitchen table, the couch or the neighborhood bar. Depends on my mood and whether I feel like I need outside stimulation or absolute quiet.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I was born in Iowa. Yes, people are actually from Iowa. But my parents moved me to Florida when I was a child, so, for all intents and purposes, that's where I grew up. Did it influence my writing? Maybe. I've just always had an overactive imagination. Writing is an outlet for that.
When did you first start writing?
I don't remember not writing.
What's the story behind your latest book?
It's about a bar owner in Ybor City Florida after the Others make their presence known to Humans. She has a little trouble one night and a Mage and a Vampire Sentinel come to help. They fall for each other, and, well; you'll just have to read it to find out the rest. I will say there's some pretty hot sex scenes.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I'm a bit of a control freak.
What are you working on next?
The next book in the series.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Somebody has to buy the pet food.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Watching TV, hanging out at the neighborhood bar, shopping, dinner with friends.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I spend an inordinate amount of time on the Barnes and Nobles website.
