Interview with Christy Bloom

How do you approach cover design?
I love digital art! Other than writing, I love creating unique and interesting images from my actual photographs I have taken. Making my ebook covers is a very fun task! I want the picture to give my readers an insight as to what the book is all about, it's fun and I have so many planned for the future.
Describe your desk
LOL! This is a funny one! Two of my children are still babies, and finding the time to write is very difficult. My desk, is either my pub style kitchen table or one of our sofa's. I have to keep ear plugs in often while writing, it helps keep me focused as I am easily distracted. Most of my writing is done very late at night when all of my angels are asleep.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
My father was a journalist. i grew up in a small town in Ontario, Canada. My influence came directly from him. Through my life, my passion for writing has never changed, I knew it was where I wanted to be for my career choice. I was a nurse for a little more than a decade and once I had my last two children, I chose to stop nursing and focus on the career I have always dreamed of having. And here I am.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I love reading and I love to write. I have a great imagination and I am a passionate woman. It was just the right time in my life to start writing and sharing my work with the world, I felt it, and went with it. Now I can't stop!
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
For me, the greatest joy is being able to take my story where ever I want it to go. Writing is powerful, and for me, it' also a stress reliever. When I write, I lose myself in the story and I love it! I am proud of what I write and with each book, I hope to get better and better.
What do your fans mean to you?
They mean the world to me, I write for them :)
What are you working on next?
Part II of The Night Shift Heat... will be steamier and more of an adventure, erotic romance!
Who are your favorite authors?
Stephen King is my favorite!!!
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
My children, they are my world. They are 12, 9, 2, and 1! They keep me going strong!
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I spend my time loving my kids! I am fascinated by them all and I feel blessed. We love the outdoors, and get out often. I also love to spend my free time watching cooking shows with my husband! We love so many of's our thing to watch!
