Interview with RaShelle Workman

Who are your favorite authors?
My favorite authors change often. Right now, they include: JK Rowling, Cassandra Clare and Tahereh Mafi
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
My family. Writing. And my adorable dogs.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Reading, of course. Baking. I love to make cupcakes. And hanging with my family.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I discover books from friends. I love hearing about new books.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes. It was about unmaking a pizza.
What is your writing process?
I come up with an idea. Mull it over a while. Then if I still like it I share the idea with a couple of different people. If they like it, I try to flesh it out and see if a story is really there. If it is, I create character arcs and write an outline.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
The first book that had a REAL impact on me was The Sword of Shannara by Terry Brooks. I loved that world.
How do you approach cover design?
I come up with ideas and then let my cover designer work their magic.
What are your five favorite books, and why?
I have waaaayyyyyy too many favorite books.
What do you read for pleasure?
Everything. Mystery. Young Adult. New Adult. Paranormal. Fantasy. As long as there's some romance.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
My favorite device is a kindle. I use it for other things as well… including Angry Birds and movies.
