#WOTR18 #AttendingAuthor – Author Spotlight on Mignon Mykel

Mignon Mykel

Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.

Mignon Mykel, I’m a romance author who dabbles between new adult and contemporary, with big notes on FAMILY–whether by blood, friendship, or team. And by team, I mean hockey (well, others eventually, too). Fun fact: My Prescott Family series was realized during a March 2008 Peoria Rivermen game; I became a season ticket holder and national anthem singer the following season.

When and Why did you start to write?

Officially, April 2016 (first TRUE publication). Unofficially, I started back in the late 90s. I’ve always loved telling stories through written word (don’t ask me to tell you one in person though; I’m a bit ADD in my storytelling then).

What authors do you always read or suggest to others?

Rachel Van Dyken, Cristin Harber, Paige Tyler

What is the most surprising thing you have found out with the writing process?

Honestly? The joy my readers have when I’m excited about my words flowing, or when I share words that I’m most excited about.

What are you working on now?

Currently, I have two pen name projects going, as well as 25: Angels and Assists (in the Enforcers of San Diego series) and Butterfly Save, the final Prescott Family story.

When writing are you a pantser or plotter?

Totaly pantser HOWEVER… I plot out points that my characters have already told me. I often dream up an entire book so I have an idea of where it’s going; I let my characters drive and mold the story, though, and sometimes those plot points they gave me months ago, are altered or, even completely taken out by the end of the book.
