Leticia Blog Tour Stop

Wednesday, March 28, 2012

Today, I am author interviewing with Lindsay Kendal on her tour for her book Leticia.

What has been the most meaningful part of writing Leticia for you?
I think its all meaningful to be honest, I love the genre and the characters. However, the place where the story is set is especially close to my heart. I live around 20 minutes away. It’s one of the most beautiful places and I spend as much time there as I can. It’s steeped in history and is supposedly very haunted. I believe it since I’ve had several strange and spooky experiences up there.

Sounds like a gorgeous place. Where in all that beauty have you found is the best place to write?
I spend a lot of time writing in my bedroom. When I was writing Leticia I spent a lot of time in the Northern Peak District and the Yorkshire Moors. It really helped to be sat in the location the story was set. It helped me to describe the surroundings and I hope my readers will be able to imagine just how beautiful this place is.

Speaking of Leticia, if you were to be a character in Leticia, what role would you play?
I’d play Leticia, definitely. Mainly because she is close to Jackson! He’s gorgeous. But also because she has good morals and ethics, plus werewolves are pretty damn cool.

If you were to write a spinoff from one of your works, who would it be about and why?
I’ve never really thought about this before but I’d have to say it would be from my trilogy, Bloodlines. The character would have to be Keira. She is the main protagonist and I can sum her up in one word – Awesome! I could see her doing more and growing tremendously. I would like to think that one day in the future I would be able to bring her back and write a storyline, maybe even with some of the other supporting characters.

What books have inspired you growing up?
I was never really a big reader, although for a couple of years while I was in school I used to read the Point Horror novels. I used the love all the paranormal characters and the teenage romance. I sometimes used to wish I was one of the characters.

Do you plan on branching out into genres other than fantasy and horror?
At the moment I would have to say no. I’ve had a love of all things weird and wonderful from being a little girl. I’ve seen more horror films than anyone else I know and have watched them from being around five. The only problem now is that nothing seems to scare me. I really wish it did.

I love paranormal romance and urban fantasy, nothing else really hold my attention. I am currently working on something as a side project, its a mixture of both genre but it will be aimed more at over eighteens. There will be interesting characters, demonology, crime and passion.

If you were to host a dinner for three authors from any time and age, who would you invite and why?
The first on my invite list would be Mr. Bram Stoker. I cannot put into words just how much I love Dracula, both the book and the film adaptation. It’s simply amazing. I would love to speak to him about it and learn what inspired him to right such a gothic novel.

Secondly I would have to have the Bronte sisters. I love the period dramas and anything to do with history. I’d like to speak to them to learn what it was like to live in those times and what inspired all their works.

Thirdly I would have a new author Ashley Fontainne. Ashley has a special place in my heart and although we have never met face to face, I consider her a friend. We met online when she sent me her first novel Accountable to None, for review. Which it a great thriller/suspense. We just seemed to click. She told me all kinds of things including the inspiration for her novel. We have been in touch ever since and she is now an author with my publisher. It would be lovely to actually meet her face to face.

  2. Frankenstein. I've seen some variations of the story and I remember it being a scary read.

  3. Most of Stephen King's novels. I'm sort of a wimp when it comes to scary things. The only reason I read anything by Stephen King is because he's awesome and it's one of the few things I can discuss with my brother.
