TQ: What would you say is your most interesting writing quirk?
Michele: I don't really have a writing quirk. Maybe I should get one. Like, I could wear a purple hat while plotting. Or stand on one leg while writing the final scene. Or insist only on green M&Ms during deadline.
TQ: Are you a plotter or a pantser?
Michele: Definitely a pantser. I have to tell the story to myself first, and then go fix everything in revisions. But I also revise and edit as I go along so by the time I finish a book it's actually closer to a third draft than a first.
TQ: Describe Must Love Lycans in 140 characters or less.
Michele: Outcast empath psychotherapist falls in love with amnesiac werewolf.
TQ: Without giving anything away, what is/are your favorite scene(s) in Must Love Lycans?
Michele: Um ... I can't tell you. Because it's a climatic scene, and the reader feedback has been amazing on it. I'm just glad I write paranormal romance, you know?
TQ: In Must Love Lycans, who was the most difficult character to write and why? The easiest and why?
Michele: Maybe Jarred was the most difficult because I couldn't quite figure him out. Villian? Hero? Both? He still has a story to tell. The easiest? I suppose that would be Kelsey. I completely empathize with characters who make the wrong choices, and then spend a lot of time figuring out how to pay penance.
TQ: Who is your favorite character in the Broken Heart series?
Michele: This is a difficult question, but I think Jessica and Patrick from I'M THE VAMPIRE, THAT'S WHY will remain my favorite characters.
TQ: What's next?
Michele: Well, my venture into Young Adult Paranormal hits shelves on February 28, 2012. UNDEADLY is Book 1 in the Reaper Diaries. It's about a teen girl who finds out she's a reaper--and that she has to reap her almost boyfriend. I'm writing that one under the name Michele Vail. In March 2012, the next book in the Wizards of Nevermore series comes out---NOW OR NEVER.
TQ: Thank you for joining us at The Qwillery.
Michele: My pleasure! Thanks for having me!
About Must Love Lycans
Must Love LycansBroken Heart 8
(Signet, September 6, 2011)
Since the moment Damien showed up-gloriously naked-Kelsey Morningstone has been having a hard time keeping her relationship with the clinic's latest amnesiac patient strictly professional. Even with her empathy abilities Kelsey's not sure she can get past Damien's anger to find the cause of his delusions. After all, falling for a patient is bad enough, but falling for a patient who thinks he's a werewolf is a whole other kind of crazy...
