Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.
I’m Valerie Twombly and I write smoldering vampires, fallen angels, dangerous demons and sinful shifters. I’ll give you a happy ever-after, but I won’t make getting there easy. I love chocolate and dogs. The most recent addition to my family is Cooper, an Aussie/Border Collie rescue. I live with my husband of 22 years in Northern IL
When you are writing, what are some go to’s that you needs? IE Foods to eat, noise level, place to sit.
I need to have music, but where I sit depends on my mood and my muse. If I’m writing in my firefighter series, then I need to have YouTube going. Hearing and watching firefighters do their job really helps put me in their reality.
What are you favorite things about attending signings?
Hands down meeting the readers. I also like taking time to check out the other authors at the event. After all, I love to read too!
What author would you love to meet (Who is your unicorn author)?
Sherrilyn Kenyon. I think I might actually become speechless if I ever met her.
When you are writing, do you have a consistent schedule where you write every day at the same time or are you a sit and go on different days to get it done kinda person?
I write before I leave for work and at my lunch. Sometimes I get words in on the weekend. It all depends on if those people in my head are talking to me or not.
What is your favorite memory so far as an author?
Hanging with Larissa Ione at a reader event. I’ve always been a fan of her Demonica series, but it was awesome to connect on a personal level. Every time I think “should I write that?” I think of her and press on. I still love her writing, but I now adore her as a person and friend.
Do you have a book that is your most prized possession? What is it and why is it so amazing?
Hmm. Actually, it’s one of my own books. Rescue Me is the second firefighter book I wrote, but the first where I really delved into firefighting. I wanted to put the reader at the scene and I did that with the help of a great friend who is a firefighter as well as some local guys. What makes this book special to me is the fact several firefighters have read it and thought it was awesome. Hey, I got guys to read romance! I call that a win.
