Misty Singer

Biography

Growing up in the small town of Shelton, Washington as an only child, I began writing when I was very young - a creative outlet for all the wacky information bouncing around inside my head.

I can't write (or do much of anything else, for that matter) without music - cleaning the house, helping the kids with homework and, of course, writing. It inspires me, triggers me into creative mode when I'm not quite there and sets the tone of my writing. Though my fondness has a wide range, I'm mostly drawn to alternative, but I've been known to compile a playlist with oldies, pop, rock, country, rap and even a screamo song or two.

I'm a hopelessly devoted mother to my four tenacious children and I thrive on the crazy pandemonium I affectionately refer to as my life. When I'm not writing, I can be found watching a terrible zombie flick, pretending to be an amateur photographer or curled up on the couch with my nose firmly planted in a good book.

Smashwords Interview

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The greatest joy of writing, for me, is taking an image, a snippet of an idea that flits briefly through my mind, and watch as it takes on an entire form of its own. I love watching a creation that started with a blank sheet of paper, or a blank white screen, as it takes shape, reaching attainment because I was able to find the words to bring it life. The entire process makes my heart smile.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
I've been an avid reader my entire life. As a kid, I generally read the books my mom had read and left laying around the house. I remember reading Dean Koontz, John Saul and Stephen King the most, as those were her favorite authors at the time.
I enjoyed every one of them - and then I read The Stand by Stephen King, and I completely fell in love. That is the first book I remember truly loving enough to read over and over again. The characters were real, ordinary people. The setting was in the wake of a disaster that was more than just believable, it seems almost inevitable. Even Mr. Randall Flagg was a supernatural being well worth reading about - Friendly, convincing and... Evil to the core.
it was the first book I remember reading where I was completely invested in characters that I had to lose in the end.
I just loved every moment of the gigantic, 823-page book.
