Interview with Sam Crescent

Published 2018-08-28.
When did you first start writing?
Since I was a kid. I've always loved telling stories and creating different characters and stories. When I actually started to write them all down was in 2009, as I couldn't stop thinking about them, and felt compelled to write them so they were no longer just day dreams.
What is the story behind your latest book?
Axton (Four Kings Empire) came to me with Taylor's words.

Ten years ago, the Four Kings killed my friend.
I’m not going to kill them.
I’m going to make every single one of them pay.
Make them pray for death, and take everything they’ve ever loved.
This is not revenge. This is justice.
Plain and simple.

That was how Axton started for me. The moment I started chapter one, and I felt Taylor's pain and her anger, but also her fear. I loved writing this story so much. How she wanted to exact justice that she didn't want to kill them, but see them all fall. Four powerful men because of the mistakes of their past, or is because of them? Also, the secrets that unraveled as I wrote it.
What is the greatest joy of writing to you?
Creating characters and romance. I'm addicted to romance so much.
What are your five favorite books and why?
This is really hard to chose, and these change all the time as well.

Shade by Jamie Begley - For me this has everything. To be honest, all of Jamie's books are amazing. This one is just, it blows my mind from the development of Shade and Lily, to the plot, and all the emotions in between.

Lawman by Diana Palmer - This book is all the feels for me. I love books where the hero has to grovel and earn back the love of the heroine. Diana Palmer has what I need and this was the first book I read by her.

All of Penelope Douglas - I can't pick one. That woman knows how to write.

Accidental Witness by Sam Mariano - This book gripped me from the start and fell in love with the baddie, Mateo.

All of Tijan, Tillie Cole, and so many others.

I think after this, it's safe to say, I don't have a favorite at all.
What is the first book that made you cry?
A Reluctant Dom by Tymber Dalton. It took me over three weeks to finish as each time I read it, I cried so badly.
Who's your book boyfriend or book crush?
I have so many. Shade (The Last Riders), Dash Chambers (Broken Love, 4), Mason (Fallen Crest series), Luca (Bound by Honor), and so many more.
What do you read for pleasure?
Everything and anything. I love dark romance, new adult, MC, young adult. So long as there's a romance, I will read it.
Describe your desk
It's large and rectangle lol. Okay, in all seriousness, it's a large wooden desk that faces a window overlooking my garden. I have a nice sized screen and keyboard on one side of the desk. The space at my right hand side is books, notebooks, and scraps of paper. I've got a pen holder and also a tiny pineapple teddy with the octopus from Finding Dory, and a figure of Beast and Sadness for company.
What is your writing Kryptonite?
Names! I really struggle with naming my characters. Sometimes it's harder than others but I have names that I love, which I seem to use often.
What are you currently working on?
It's new territory for me, my first ever first Point of View story. I've never wrote one before and it's all exciting. I'm loving it. Sorry, I don't like to give too much away.
What drives you to keep on writing?
The love of the written word. I'm addicted to it and I love romance. I have a passion for it. It's what I love to do above everything else. It even beats baking and cooking as well.
