Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.
CLAUDIA SHELTON – A word-filled-story-filled person who tries to fill the world with fast-paced romantic suspense/thrillers and contemporary/women’s fiction romance. I’m also in the process of branching out into a small-town cozy mystery series or an action-adventure thriller suspense series. On a personal note, Claudia considers herself a traveler, music lover and water person. Her main priority is spending time with family, friends and her two sweet, conniving rescue dogs.
When you are writing, what are some go to’s that you needs? IE Foods to eat, noise level, place to sit.
There’s nothing in particular as far as food. In fact when I’m into physically writing on deadline, I get so into the story that people have to remind me to eat.
What are you favorite things about attending signings?
I love meeting everyone–readers, other authors, and the fabulous organizers! It’s one day of the year when everything books is perfectly aligned!
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’m always writing in my head, but when I’m on deadline I try to physically write at least 7,000 words a week.
What is your favorite memory so far as an author?
When a reader comes up to me and tells me how much they like my books! Always makes me feel warm and fuzzy on the insides. Sometimes I need to be reminded that what I write, does make a difference.
Do you have a book that is your most prized possession? What is it and why is it so amazing?
“THE SAILOR DOG” by Margaret Wise Brown, pictures by Garth Williams (A Simon & Schuster–Little Golden Book, 1953)– This was my favorite childhood book that took me away to a world of make-believe! I loved how Scuppers The Sailor Dog traveled around the world in search of adventure and never gave up. Nowadays I have a copy of this book, that I found at a bookseller’s booth at an antique fair, sitting beside a cover copy of my very first published book “Risk of a Lifetime”.
