Today on the Fun Friday, Hardcover Therapy is PROUD to have one of our favs… Tiffany King! Tiffany King stole my ❤ the moment I read Miss Me Not. A little unknown fact… her reading & liking my review is what got the ball rolling on my blog… isn’t that right Jennifer Roberts-Hall 😉 So without further a due, an interview with Tiffany King!
1. Did you always want to be a writer?
Being a writer has always been my dream. It just took a while to build up the courage to start. There are so many great authors and books out there. I was always afraid no one would want to read anything I had written. I feel absolutely blessed now at this point in my life. I have met many friends, readers and fellow authors throughout this journey, and I am thankful for their support. I wake everyday with a smile on face.
2. When did you start writing?
It wasn’t until my daughter started developing an interest in reading novels that I began thinking seriously about writing. I decided to try and write something for her that I thought she would enjoy. It became this on again off again project over the next couple of years, but eventually turned into Meant to Be, the first book in my Saving Angels Series.
3. Which is easier to write: paranormal, romance, or YA contemporary? Why?
For me, paranormal is the most difficult to write. Don’t get me wrong, it’s fun to write about made up worlds and creatures and super-human powers, but it requires more outlining and planning to maintain consistency throughout the story. Paranormal or not, there still has to be some sense of logic to the story to be relatable to a reader.
4. If you could be a superhero, what power would you choose and why?
He’s not a superhero, but I am a huge Harry Potter fan. Give me a wand and some magical ability and I’ll be good. Provided I get to attend Hogwarts to study of course.
5. Who is your favorite hero/ heroines?
I was lucky enough to read an ARC of Red Hill by Jamie McGuire. I love the main character, Scarlet. She is badass and without giving away any spoilers…wow on the ending! And the honorable mention goes to Harry Potter because I love him.
6. Ice cream or chocolate?
Chocolate. Always chocolate.
7. Favorite book boyfriend?
Fane from the Grey Wolves Series by Quinn Loftis. He is caring, sensitive and puts Jacque’s needs above his own. That is what any good guy would do.
8. What inspired you to write Miss Me Not?
Adolescence is a rough time during everyone’s lives. It is that time when a young person is trying to find their identity while dealing with the pressure of expectations. Expectations from school, parents, and friends. Some kids are better equipped to handle the pressure. My intent with Miss Me Not was to write a story that provided inspiration. To show there is always hope in any situation.
9. What is your favorite book?
Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. As I have already stated, I am a huge fan of the series, but this is the book that ties up many of the plot twists from the previous books. We learn about Voldemort’s past and his connection to Harry, and what Harry must do in the final book to defeat Voldemort. Plus, the ending in Half Blood Prince still makes me cry every time.
10. Do you prefer to travel by airplane or car?
Car. I’m actually a little scared of flying, but unfortunately it is unavoidable for the type of travel I do.
11. What advice can you give to new writers?
Believe in yourself. Writing is subjective. For everyone that hates your writing, and there will be those that do, there will be others that love it. Just keep writing and always work to improve yourself.
12. What person has influenced your life the most?
My family influences everything that I do. My husband and two children are my number one support crew.
