Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.
Michele Shriver. By day, I’m an attorney practicing primarily in criminal defense and juvenile law. Evenings and weekends, I am an author of contemporary and sports romance and women’s fiction. I don’t have nearly as much time for writing as I’d like, but I do it because I have stories in my head that demand to be told, and because it’s cheaper than therapy. I love doing books signings and meeting new readers, especially because it gives me the opportunity to visit new cities and states.
When you are writing a book, which is harder? The first book in the series or the others after it?
The ones after. With the first book in a series, everything is fresh and new and with endless possibilities, and you don’t have to worry about keep track of previous events in the series or character traits and descriptions, etc.
On a typical day, how much time do you spend writing?
Unfortunately my schedule doesn’t allow for writing every day. I’m more of a weekend writer these days and aim for a few hours each day of the weekend.
Do you have a favorite character that you have written? If so, who? And what makes them so special.
That’s a hard one. All of my characters are special to me in their own way. If I had to name a favorite right now (and since I chose to answer this question, I guess I do), I have to go with Myriah in Tranquil Harbor. She’s only in a supporting role, non POV character in that book, because she is the catalyst of of so many things and changes the life of the MC forever. She’s a beautiful, tortured soul who has survived so much in her young life, and I can’t wait to write more for her and tap further into her enormous potential. Readers have definitely not seen the last of Myriah Banks.
What is your definition of success?
Knowing that in some way, I have connected with a reader, whether it’s a particular story or character they identify with, or even a single line of dialogue that might make them smile or laugh.
