Interview with Casey Peeler

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The greatest joy of writing for me is telling a new story! I also love the fact that people that aren't avid readers enjoy my stories.
What do your fans mean to you?
They are the reason I write. They are the ones that are my biggest cheerleaders, and I wouldn't be where I am today without them!
What are you working on next?
Currently, I'm working on a spin off of the Full Circle Series called Playing Piper! It's up for preorder! :)
Who are your favorite authors?
There are SO many! I'm a HUGE Tiffany King fan, but I also love Jillian Dodd, Colleen Hoover, Jamie McGuire, & Amanda Bennett!
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
When I'm not writing, I'm teaching high schoolers or being a wife and mom!
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I discover ebooks that I read by word of mouth mostly! Let's face it, someone saying they loved a book makes me want to check it out!
What is your writing process?
Outline, write, edit, edit, and edit! :)
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
I remember the first book I actually read. That was Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neal Hurston because until then I was a cliff notes kinda girl! **I know, the horror!** That book changed my life as a reader, and I only hope that one of my books does that for someone!
How do you approach cover design?
My sister does my covers and I use local individuals on the front. I love that I can "shop local" with my covers!
Describe your desk
My desk is in a room I hardly use because I take my laptop everywhere and write wherever I am at the time: dance, coffee shop, living room, or on the deck!
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in the foothills of North Carolina. Each and everyone of my stories are based in North or South Carolina. I love to stay true to who I am and where I'm from. :)
