Author Interview: Rebecca Royce of I'll Be Mated for Christmas
I am ecstatic to have an author back on my blog for a second time to feature more of her work! She is great and you will love her Christmas romance I'll Be Mated for Christmas. Big thanks to Marissa over at Sizzling PR for allowing this stop on her blog tour!
About the Book:
Bethany Johnson grew up one of the only humans in a pack of werewolves. She didn’t have an easy time and her self-confidence was almost non-existent. Finally, after some serious psychotherapy and the help of weight-loss surgery, she is feeling like the Bethany she has always wanted to be. But now she has to say goodbye to the werewolves in her life. Out with the old and in with the new this year…
Luke Denarius is the new Alpha of the Delta pack. He’s never met Bethany but the second he scents her he knows she is his. No way is she going off to Italy for adventure and hot sex with other men.
With the help of Madame Eve these two will find that a mating is in the works for Christmas.
About the Author:
I am the mother of three adorable boys and I am fortunate to be married to my best friend. We live in northern New Jersey and try not to freeze too badly during the winter months.
I am in love with science fiction, fantasy, and the paranormal and try to use all of these elements in my writing. I've been told I'm a little bloodthirsty so I hope that when you read my work you'll enjoy the action packed ride that always ends in romance. I love to write series because I love to see characters develop over time and it always makes me happy to see my favorite characters make guest appearances in other books.
In my world anything is possible, anything can happen, and you should suspect that it will.
I'd love to hear from you!
1. Why do you write for children instead of adults or vice versa?
Well, I wouldn’t know how to go about writing children’s books. I’m in awe of children’s books authors. But, my mind is a dirty, dark place. I have to stay completely adult about it. Having said that, I do have a Young Adult series and while it has no heat, it does have dark content.
2. Who would play you in a film of your life?
LOL. I don’t know. Maybe Emma Stone. She has red hair.
3. What are the most important attributes to remaining sane as a writer?
Family and perspective. Being able to put down the book and get back to real life.
4. Have you ever read or seen yourself as a character in a book or movie?
I think I place myself into every book I read. I’m always envisioning myself as the heroine.
5. What do you find to be the biggest challenge when writing?
Not giving into doubts and negative energies, continuing to believe that I can get the book written the way I want it to be.
6. Do you enjoy giving interviews?
7. How much impact does your childhood have on your writing?
A lot. The things I was interested in as a child show up in my writing all the time.
8. What was the greatest thing you learned in school?
To love learning, to love reading.
9. Do you admire your own work?
Yes, I do, as much as I admire other writers. I just love to read
10. Who else’s work do you admire?
Nalini Singh makes me want to be a better writer.
11. What do you think is the sole purpose of books?
Depends on the book. For fiction, its about entertaining and telling a good story.
12. How would you convince a young person to pursue writing?
If they have to be convinced they shouldn’t do it.
