Brandy Slaven

Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.

Hiya, I’m Brandy Slaven. I live in Tennessee and am obsessively in love with RH, 80’s everything, zombies, and post apocalyptic anything.

Where is your favorite place to write and what food must be present?

I can write literally ANYWHERE. I even wrote once laid back in a dentist chair. No lie! I guess it really depends on the day. In an ideal situation, I’d love to be in a coffee shop/bookstore with a vanilla latte at hand.

What are you favorite things about attending signings?

This is my first one. So far my favorite thing has been the awesome new people that I’ve met.

What author would you love to meet (Who is your unicorn author)?

Hmmm, that’s a hard one because I have so many! Besides some of my favorite RH authors that I’ll be meeting soon, I guess I’d have to go with Sherrilyn Kenyon or Charlaine Harris. I seriously love their books!

What author would you love to write with?

Well, I’ve already got some upcoming co-authored projects. They are definitely going to be hard to beat.

What is your favorite memory so far as an author?

I don’t know if I have a favorite per say. One of my favorites, I’d have to tell you a little back story. My very first book, Of Death And Darkness, started as project to help me during a time when I was struggling. I never expected to get it published. I just wrote because it was a serious stress reliever. It took me 5 long years to finish it. I only got serious within that last year because my dad passed away the year before. He was my biggest supporter and I always promised that I’d try to do something with it. When he passed, I made it a point to finish it not just for him but for me too. Then I found out about self publishing through Amazon. I was so nervous pushing that publish button, especially considering I knew NO ONE in the book world yet. When the reviews started coming in for it and I found out that people actually liked it…it’s an indescribable feeling. I know now that my writing sounds so much better, so they are being rewritten as we speak. But, just to know that there are people out there that loved it was enough to keep me writing past that point. I’ll always be grateful for the people who have been there since day one and the ones who have come along since.
