Interview with Theresa Marguerite Hewitt

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in a very small town in Central New York. Being part of a tight community where everyone knows everyone has made me who I am. It comes through in my writing, because most the time my stories are in small towns, it's what I know. You get to read about the 'he-said-she-said' 'everyone knows your business' side of small town life, along with a healthy dose of country living.
When did you first start writing?
I would say probably sixth grade when we first had the opportunity for a creative writing class.
What's the story behind your latest book?
My latest one, Rowena's Revenge, is the fifth and final full length book in The Broadus Supernatural Society Series. It can be seen as a stand alone, as it's written in the 1st person when the others are 3rd person. It's about a snow leopard Were, who is half Fae, finding her family and her mates after being alone for most of her life. It's about dealing with loss, love and your inner demons.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
Well I received a NOOK for a birthday present one year and started noticing all these stories published by the authors on Smashwords. So I researched it. After deliberating I decided to throw my hat in the ring and well, here I am.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
My greatest joy is just hearing what people think of the stories. Whenever someone emails me or messages me on FB, telling me how my story touched them, it makes me happy.
What do your fans mean to you?
The fans mean everything. Without them, I would be nothing. I love my fans and my STREET TEAM.
What are you working on next?
After Rowena's Revenge is out, I'll be working on getting all of my other work cleaned up and a few in print. After that it's on to Book 4 in The Wakefield Romance Series.
Who are your favorite authors?
My favorites are R.E. Butler, Harper Sloan, Anne Rice, Nicholas Sparks and many, many others.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I spend time with my dogs and cats, my boyfriend, friends, family, I'm not very exciting. I do love having a good time and being ridiculous.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I mainly go on recommendation. If my friends like it, there is a good chance I will too.
