Interview with Stephanie Summers

What are you working on next?
I'm currently working on a contemporary rock star romance, Take Me On, and an untitled novella to be included in The Willow Creek Vampires Series.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
If I'm not doing something with my kids, I'm on Facebook or Twitter. I spend way too much time on social media.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I usually find them through reviews or teasers on Facebook from book bloggers. I also have been known to just type in a certain genre in the Amazon Kindle Store and see what pops up.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
Kindle Fire
When did you first start writing?
I didn't start writing until I was almost 31 years old, and I'm 32 now. I always had an active imagination and very vivid dreams. One of the techniques I used for falling asleep was to start dreaming beforehand. What I mean by this, is that I would close my eyes and start to visualize myself somewhere else doing something completely different, and before I knew it, I was asleep. It wasn't until I got a little older that I realized not everyone was doing this, and I decided to take those images and stories I dreamt up and put them to paper.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Escape. That's the greatest joy for me. I get to escape into another world when I write. Not that my life stinks, because it doesn't at all. I like to think of writing as a mini-vacation (at least when things are gong smoothly and I'm not stuck on an idea).
What do your fans mean to you?
I am thankful for every fan I have. When I first published Craving, I was okay with no one ever reading it. I was proud to have just published something. But then something crazy happened. People started sending messages telling me how much they loved the story. I was floored. I never expected anyone to read it, let alone love it. My fans are awesome and I love every single one of them!
