Interview with Angee Taylor

What is your e-reading device of choice?
I prefer my iPad mini. I have the Kindle, nook and Ibooks apps on it. I don't have a preference between apps though. Just where ever I find the book at.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
Wow I grew up initially in Houston until I was seven. Then my mom got with my step-dad and we moved around a lot. Mostly all over Texas and Louisiana for a few years before landing back in Houston. Several years later they took me from big city life to super small town. I graduated H.S. from there- had a graduating class of forty-two (told ya it was small.) I moved to a slight bigger town a few miles away when I got married only later to move back once I divorced. Later I moved to Fort Worth after living there for less than two years I moved to a town just North of Waco, TX. It made the new recently-West, Tx. Remember the fertilizer plant explosion in April 2013. Yep that's where I live.

I think that the moving around exposed me to so many different people and personalities that it enables me to bring a character to life with a great personality.
When did you first start writing?
Well I started the first time when I was young but stopped for some reason. Then in my early twenties I wrote part of a novel-it got destroyed- long story. Then I started again in 2012.
What's the story behind your latest book?
Oh, I love this question.

You see I have a very rare illness. That make me sensitive to sun light and if I take the medications as prescribed I need a blood transfusion. I began writing Hidden Secrets as a therapy not only to vent about my illness but about the thins I see at work. As I wrote I realized while describing my illness it sounded a lot like a vampire. So I twisted it into a paranormal romance and ran with it. That single book has turned into The Secrets Saga.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I just wanted to get my story out and I'm to impatient to wait for a traditional publishing house to even get back to me.
What are you working on next?
I have three ideas for books I'm tossing around in my head. Each of them completely different than the other. All are paranormal. Once has to do with ghost, one has to do with dragons and one has to do with Fae. I know I'm all over the place but I love most genres of paranormal.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Working. Working. Working. No, really I work an average of 10-24 hour shifts a month and on my days off I try to spend time with my family, play in the pool. Just whatever sounds fun that day.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Usually from my blog or other blogs :) I try to stick with indies these days.
What is your writing process?
I get an idea in my head and run the story all the way through like a movie in my mind then I sit down and write. Many times the characters change the script though.
