Interview with Lindsey Ramos

When did you first start writing?
I started writing throughout grade school to Junior High and have been writing ever since.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The greatest joy of writing for me would being able to connect with the readers and hear their thoughts of the characters in my stories. I love the feedback and I also love the creating a new world filled with many possibilities that the real world doesn't offer us.
What do your fans mean to you?
It's weird to think I have any fans, really. The fans I do have on Wattpad means a lot to me because I know most of them have read some of my stories and commented on them how great it is, and it means a lot to me. It really does. But I also have a few fans that haven't followed me, but I do appreciate their support nevertheless.
What are you working on next?
I am currently finishing up 'Clash of the Brothers' and going from there. I'm not sure what I'll be working on next, but I am leaning towards a more evolved romance story. 'Clash of the Brothers' has that romance factor, but it's mainly focus on the conflict in the story than the romance, and I kind of want to explore that.
Who are your favorite authors?
I'm obsessed with Amanda Hocking. I absolutely love her Trylle Trilogy; the whole trolls exist is amazing and how she made that seem so normal and yet amazing is beyond me. I've only read the first book, switched, but I can't wait to read the rest of the books of it! I recommend her work 100%.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I spend my time watching Let's Plays, playing mmo games such as Guild Wars 2, and many other games. I'm a gamer at heart, not the competitive type of gaming, either. I like the games where I can be by myself and have no one judging me. And I can do that in most games. I've also been addicted playing Town of Salem, too. Great game.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
When I was in middle school, 6th grade to be precise, I remember writing a Vampire/Romance story. It was kind of bizarre, but I had someone in my class read it and they got hooked to it immediately and kept asking for me to keep writing so she can see what happened next. Needless to say, it really boost my ego haha.
What is your writing process?
My writing process? Normally I get wild ideas here and there for a new story, and I try to write those ideas down on paper to get a more general idea of them. For example, 'Clash of the Brothers' was created by the inspiration I got from seeing the movie trailer of Exodus: Gods and Kings. I liked the idea of seeing the two brothers relationship blossom but then halt all of a sudden and tumble, but knowing that the brothers do care for each other. Of course, my brothers in my story are completely different and I'd prefer it that way. Most of the names in my story are greek related or ancient greek related, they might not be 100% accurate words or meanings behind them, but they are in fact greek.
