Exclusive Interview with Author J. Rose Alexander
Today, we're doing something a little different. This is our 13th guest author interview on the Marie Lavender's Books! blog, and fellow author J. Rose Alexander is visiting us.
Hello! It’s such a pleasure to have you here. :)
Can you tell us a little bit about your latest book? When did it
come out and where can we get it?
The latest book is called Penumbra: Equinox, and it just came out on the 19th. It's a witches-werewolves-vampires story, and the beginning of a HUGE series that takes somewhere around 70 years to tell!
That's interesting! I had a book out on October 19th as well.
And Penumbra sounds fascinating! Just perfect for Halloween!
Is there anything that prompted your book? Something that inspired you?
This book has history. I started writing it when was 11 or 12 years old, and it was because I wanted to read the story like the one that was in my head. I was big into Christopher Pike, I was just discovering Anne Rice, and I loved (shamefully) Teenwolf before it was cool to be a werewolf or shifter. And originally, it was hand written. It was crazy!
That's great! And I sure would like to learn more about "Telephone Terror". My writing wheels are turning...;)
Do you have any favorite authors?
Anne Rice, kind of a given, Christopher Pike, Margaret Atwood, Sherri S. Tepper, J.R. Ward-- I'll give anyone a shot, really.
Nope. I'm very busy, so I've been SUPER mobile. I write on my phone when I can, usually on my commute to and from work, and late at night when I have a chance to sit in front of the computer and just let the words out.
I can't blame you there. Life is so busy!
Are there any words you'd like to impart to fellow writers? Any advice?
