Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself and which Twinsie do you know.Kelsey Elise Sparrow. I am a romance author who loves most versions of the genre. That means, I write under several subgenres. I’m also a teacher and mother. Some of my favorite stories have all left me wanting for more as well as thrown me for a loop. I decided I wanted the same to be found in my writing.
When you are writing a book, which is harder? The first book in the series or the others after it?The ones that come after especially if there has been time or other works between works.
What comes first? The plot or characters?Most of the time the plot comes first. On a very rare occasion, the characters give me the plotline and everything that comes with it.
What author would you love to meet (Who is your unicorn author)?I have a few. JM Walker, Audrey Carlan, JR Ward. Top of my list would be Gena Showalter. I love her works and have for years.
If you could ask that author three questions about their writing, writing process, or books, what would they be?1. Do you keep a notebook handy for all your notes on a particular book as you write? 2. Do you have a process or checklist from concept to publish? 3. Are you one to promote other lessor-known authors?
What is harder? The blurb writing, naming the book, or naming the series?Oh gosh. I absolutely loathe writing the blurb for my novels. The series names and titles come easily but the blurb makes me want to bawl my eyes out every time.
What is your definition of success?Success is when you have readers who are just as passionate about an author’s characters as the author themselves. The characters are loved and the readers want to know what’s going on in their lives.
