StaPlease Enjoy this Ten Question Author Interview with Me, Stacy Gold

Recently, I had the great pleasure of participating in a fast-paced Q & A with a group of avid romance readers. Many of the questions were incredibly thoughtful and thought-provoking, so I thought I’d share ten questions here, along with my answers.

  1. Are there recurring themes in your work? Second chances, you can’t judge a book by its cover, and my favorite Rolling Stone theme of you can’t always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you’ll get what you need.
  2. What are your fav scenes to write? The outdoors scenes and the really emotional scenes are my favorite.
  3. What are the most challenging scenes to write? The transitions leading into and out of the big turning points because I work really hard to make each change of heart or change of plans believable.
  4. What scene do you wish you could witness in real life? In my upcoming release, there’s a scene where the very laid-back, nonconfrontational hero punches someone out, and deservedly so.
  5. Which of your heroes would you most want to hang out with? My hero in my third novella, Dan Griffin, is actually an amalgamation of a few of my good guy friends. He’s funny and goofy and sweet and a little inappropriate. He’s also really good looking and a terrific cook and dancer.
  6. Have you ever written a character that you did not like? Nope. I love all my characters regardless of their flaws and issues.
  7. What is your favorite thing about being an author and what is your least favorite thing? I love creating my own worlds with competent, independent women finding love on their terms. My least favorite thing is how long the actual writing always takes.
  8. What do you hope readers get from reading your stories? Hope and joy and a rollicking good time.
  9. What made you want to be a writer/author? I’ve always been a good writer. I was the kid in college who got excited when the professor said half my grade would be based on a paper. From there I took a winding path into being a marketing copywriter and journalist full-time for about fifteen years. Then I accidentally fell into writing fiction and realized it was the most fun I’d ever had with a keyboard.
  10. Have you ever written a scene that was so intense you had to walk away to calm down? Oh, no. I get so invested in the intense scenes I hate to step away until the scene is done. Though sometimes, if I’ve already been on the keyboard for a while, I’ll stop in the middle so I’m forced right back into the groove the next day.

Do you have a question for me? Please do leave it in the comment below and I’ll be happy to answer it.
