Interview with M. L. Tompsett

What do you read for pleasure?
Hmmm, now this question can be taken a couple of different ways. Especially when I also write erotica. But, back to the question - What do I read for pleasure?
I enjoy Paranormal romance of course. There are so many fantastic talented authors out there. I also enjoy reading Historical Romance. Science fiction - fantasy - romance
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I started off with a basic e-reader, which came with 100 free books and gift vouchers. From there my family presented me with an iPod and years later I upgraded to my trusty iPad. With far too many book apps
Describe your desk
I usually type on my laptop computer, which I can take with me anywhere. Or my portable keyboard with my iPad when out and about.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in a little town, south of Melbourne in Victoria. It was actually the third permanent settlement in Victoria.
Sometimes when I would over look the nearby rolling hills, my mind became busy creating little stories and characters.
When did you first start writing?
When I was a little girl. Creating little books with scraps of paper and colouring in the pages with creative pictures. Otherwise many years later when I was in secondary college.
What's the story behind your latest book?
About a girl, trying to prove to herself she is stronger than everyone thinks. Only to find out, she actually belongs in the world of paranormal shifters. And why her parents had hidden her away when she was just a small child and her soul mate.
I had originally written this book over seven years ago. So it has been sitting amongst my computer files waiting to be reborn and transformed into a paranormal fantasy romance for ebook.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
To prove to myself I can write something I have enjoyed creating and seeing it become alive in the form of an actual book.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The characters and telling their story.
What do your fans mean to you?
A fantastic bunch of people, who seem to come back for the next book. I enjoy hearing different people explain what they loved, enjoyed and even hated in my books. Well hated is more to do with certain characters.
What are you working on next?
Another shifter fantasy romance
Who are your favorite authors?
Now this question is far too hard to answer. There are far too many fantastic and talented authors - from all around the world.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Not sure if inspires is the right words I would use...
Apart from being a mum, and mums are usually required to be out of bed anyway. I think, finishing what I am writing, to finish the journey.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Reading of course. I love to read. Spending time with family and friends
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
The wishing chair. For someone so young, I was able to read the words in the first place. The book belonged to my much older sister.
