T.S. Barnett

Biography

T.S. likes to write about what makes people tick, whether that’s deeply-rooted emotional issues, childhood trauma, or just plain hedonism. Throw in a heaping helping of action and violence, a sprinkling of steamy bits, and a whisper of wit (with alliteration optional but preferred), and you have her idea of a perfect novel. She believes in telling stories about real people who live in less-real worlds full of werewolves, witches, demons, vampires, and the occasional alien.

Born and bred in the South, T.S. started writing young, but began writing real novels while working full time as a legal secretary. When she’s not skiving off work to write, she reads other people’s books, plays video games, watches movies, and spends time with her husband and daughter. She hopes her daughter grows into a woman who knows what she wants, grabs it, and gets into significantly less trouble than the women in her mother’s novels.

Smashwords Interview

What motivated you to become an indie author?
I want to be close with my readership. I want to have complete control over my product, for better or worse. If people like my books, they'll read them, and that's all. I do my best to get the word out, but ultimately what's going to make my books known is whether or not people like them. I hope I fall on the "love it" side of people talking about my books, rather than the "what the hell was she thinking" side.
What is your writing process?
I usually start with the very kernel of an idea. Something about a story I hear or a documentary I watch will appeal to me, and I'll say, "Huh. I can do something with that." Then I spend a while scribbling all over a notebook trying to think of what exactly to do with that kernel. I almost always start with characters, because that's easiest for me. I love creating new people, and sometimes I end up with a cast of characters with no story to participate in. But that's the next step! I try to have at least a vague idea of where the story is going before I start to write. I used to just wing it, but I got really tired of finishing and then looking back and realizing I had to rewrite the whole thing.
