I met the lovely Vanessa Sims via Facebook and am happy to have her visit my blog today for an interview. She’s a great sport. 😉
You’re at a karaoke bar. What song (by what artist) do you sing?
As of right now I would sing Blank Space by Taylor Swift or Shake It Off or Bad Blood. Well basically anything from her 1989 album.
It’s Groundhog Day today. If you had to live one 24 hour period over and over again for the next fifty years, which day would it be?
I think I would have to relive the day I went to Disney World. I mean because it’s Disney World and I was kid. You couldn’t get any better than that.
Have you always wanted to be an author, or did you decide to pursue writing later in life? Was there a specific incident that got you writing?
I love to write and read. I always kept a journal, but half the time I didn’t remember to write in it. I actually finished my first book when I was 15. It was a YA book. I can’t find it for the life of me. I think my mom might have thrown it out unknowingly.
Where do you find your inspiration?
I find my inspiration from a lot of things. Since I started writing I would look at couples and wonder if they are a couple and half the time I’m thinking awe they are so cute! And I also think well if mf stories can do it why can’t m/m.
Would you ever write M/F or F/F? Why or why not?
I am actually writing 2 M/F’s right now. Hopefully they will be out soon. As for F/F, I’m not going to say yes, but I’m also not going to say no. Something might come and I need to let it out.
Who is your favorite character in all media, throughout history? Why?
I have never thought about it. I would have to say, well shoot no names are coming to mind, that’s bad.
Who is your favorite character from your books? Why?
I would have to say Anton from Cherished Mate in my Red Moon Pack series. I just love the way he came together and how he took care of his responsibility and the way he gets under Noah’s skin. Gotta love someone who can get under an Alpha’s skin and they’re not their mate.
Are you at all superstitious? In what way, or why not?
If I see a penny I will pick it up, though I think I do it wrong because I never know which way it’s supposed to be facing. When the time is double say 11:11 I make a wish on something red. I also try to wish on the first star of the night.
