Interview with Danielle DeVor

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in West Virginia where there is a rich tradition of ghost stories. My grandmother used to spend a lot of the time I was with her telling me various spooky stories. Though, I was always interested in monsters and vampires.
When did you first start writing?
I've always been writing something. When I was young, it was poetry. Then, in college, I started writing plays. It wasn't until I was a little older that I started writing prose.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Hearing from people who actually like my stuff. :) I always hope someone will like what I've written, but I never assume.
What do your fans mean to you?
Everything. Just a simple review or good star rating will put a smile on my face.
What are you working on next?
A short story dealing with an Urban Legend central to my town. Should be unusual and interesting.
Who are your favorite authors?
Stephen King, Anne Rice, Richard Matheson.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I read, crochet, do graphic design. I also watch a lot of horror films.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Searching keywords mostly. Sometimes someone will write a post on a blog about a specific book that will interest me.
How do you approach cover design?
Kind of organically. I will really think about the story I've just written, then try to figure out what would make a good image to connect to that story. In the case of Papap's Teeth, it had to be the box.
What do you read for pleasure?
Horror, YA, Thrillers, Paranormal Romance
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I have a kindle fire HD.

One would think that a vampire’s teeth would be harmless, but Sara and her grandfather know differently.
