Angela Roquet

Biography

Urban fantasy author Angela Roquet is a great big weirdo. She collects Danger Girl comic books, owls, skulls, random craft supplies, and all things Joss Whedon. She's a fan of renewable energy, marriage equality, and religious tolerance. As long as whatever you're doing isn't hurting anyone, she's a fan of you, too.

Angela lives in Missouri with her husband and son. When she's not swearing at the keyboard, she enjoys painting, goofing off with her family and friends, and reading books that raise eyebrows. GRAVEYARD SHIFT, the first novel in Angela's Lana Harvey, Reapers Inc. series, is now available for FREE. You can find Angela online at www.angelaroquet.com

Smashwords Interview

What is your writing process?
I do not have what is traditionally considered a "healthy" writing process. I may go weeks without writing, and then I'll sit down and type 13,000 in a weekend. Especially if a deadline is looming. If I'm being kind to myself, I'll use the "I write better under pressure" excuse. If I'm seriously offering advice, I still go with "Write everyday." I really probably should. Other than that... I'm a compulsive plotter, complete with color-coded sticky notes and a monster-sized plot board, and I write my scenes out of order, depending on what mood strikes (or where I get stuck.) I love music, but I can't handle music with lyrics when I'm writing. I can, however, write with Curious George playing on the television and my two-year-old son climbing on me. Go figure.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
The first story I remember reading was when I was around three years old. It was "The Cookie Monster and the Cookie Tree." I still have it. The spine is duck-taped together. I'm pretty sure I learned to read with that book. That or my mother read it to me so many times that I memorized it. She insists that I was a fast learner and actually read the story from the book, not from memory. That book always reminds me of what an incredible mother I have, and I'm thankful to her for jump-starting my love of literature at such a young age.
