#AuthorSpotlight – Daryl Banner

Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself and which Twinsie do you know.

My name is Daryl Banner. I’m an author of primarily male/male romance, but I also write dystopian and fantasy fiction, and I’m also a composer. I know all the awesome Twinsies! 🙂

When you are writing a book, which is harder? The first book in the series or the others after it?

The ones that follow. It is a challenge to find new territory in an established series to explore that is both unexpected and new, yet familiar enough to not jar the readers.

What comes first? The plot or characters?

Characters! The plot is absolutely dependent on who is living the experience, and quite often changes in the process of fleshing out the story.

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

Chuck Palahniuk

If you could ask that author three questions about their writing, writing process, or books, what would they be?

What was your most fulfilling writing experience? Which scene from one of your books still gives you chills when you think about its conception? Did you know in writing “Fight Club” that it would change the world?

What is harder? The blurb writing, naming the book, or naming the series?

Blurb writing is often the biggest struggle, though honestly all three of these things have given me substantial heartache. lol

What is your favorite memory so far as an author?

The first time another author read one of my books and gushed over it. It was the amazing Madeline Sheehan, and the book was The Beautiful Dead.

What is your definition of success?

Feeling okay when everything is not okay 🙂
