Interview with Brenda K. Davies

What do you read for pleasure?
I read like I write, a little bit of everything! I get bored with just one thing and often switch genres.
Describe your desk
Very organized. I can't stand clutter, but I have my zombie teddy bear from my husband, a pen holder I made my for my dad when I was a child, pictures, and a sand art I made my dad.
When did you first start writing?
I started writing plays for my friends when I was five and wrote my first book when I was nine.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The never knowing! I often have an idea of where I'm going, but I'm a pantser and my characters often take turns I never saw coming! It's always an adventure!
What do your fans mean to you?
Everything! They make me laugh, smile and love writing in a whole new way as I never realized how wonderful it was to brighten their day!
What are you working on next?
I am working on finishing Bound by Darkness, the third book in the Alliance Series.
Who are your favorite authors?
Dean Koontz, James Rollins, JK Rowlings, Stephen King, and many MANY more!
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I spend a lot of time in my barn with my horse, dog, and cat. I also spend a lot of time outside, planting flowers and taking care of those plants. I enjoy going out with my husband and hanging out with friends.
What is your writing process?
I just sit and write. It doesn't matter where I am or what is going on around me, I can shut it out and just write. I like to get in a solid three hours a day, but that varies on how the day is going.
How do you approach cover design?
I often have an idea of what I want and Dane somehow manages to make it come to life. Of course, there are times my ideas are just not what I imagined, but he always comes up with something amazing!
What are your five favorite books, and why?
Harry Potter (the whole series, I can't pick just one), Skeleton Crew, Strangers, Lady of the Forest, and The Grapes of Wrath. There are many many more and tomorrow, I'd probably come up with five different ones as there are so many I love, but those are my five for today.
