Smashwords Interview

When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I'm a big fan of music and reading. It's all sort of what's involved with being a writer. To be a writer, you need to hone your craft and reading is a bit part of that. Music is a great inspiration too.

Outside of those things, I have a pet Poodle, who is great. He's a big boisterous thing and loves training with treats. I don't really do much else, as being disabled and constantly towards the 'sick' side of the health register it's hard to find the physical strength to put much more into my day.

I have to say that writing is my life. Not really a career but a calling. It's what I enjoy and I do spend most hours of most days on my laptop typing away, doing research or arranging mock covers for future releases.
What are you working on next?
I'm currently working on a few projects at the moment. One is a series that's a cross between the romance and crime genres. It's about a girl who falls for what she thinks if her private school teacher, only for her to find out that he's really a secret government agent working undercover. The series spans, currently, over ten books and about thirty years as the family grows and expands.

I'm also working on a vampire romance story. The world has deteriorated and vampires have been forced to expose themselves to humans and take over the world to save humans from their own depravities and attempts at saving the world. One girl skirts the lines between the two and falls for the King of vampires unexpectedly.

At the same time, I'm also working on a story about a magical school where anything from dragons, vampires, fairies and banshees all go to learn their craft. It's a real fun one, and my first YA story.

Smashwords book reviews by Elaine White

  • Inside The Heart Of My Soul on March 04, 2014

    I really enjoyed this book of poems. I think the best thing I loved was that they were all so different. Different themes, different tones, some rhymed and some didn't. I always hate to review poetry because the beauty of it is in the eye of the beholder. However, this one is a keeper. The poems are deeper than your average and I'm pretty sure that when I read it again, I'll find some new meaning or understanding of each poem. I can't wait to read more from this author. She clearly has a special talent with words.
