#AuthorSpotlight – Bella Roccaforte

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

“Bella Roccaforte….I’m bella roccaforte bitches you know me. Kelly. JK. I’m just a hot mess that loves to tell stories. Prefer to tell the darker side of things. ”

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

“depends on the series. The deadly dreams series was easy to write when fitting it into my schedule. Finished it finally. But book two in the Crescent Hunter series is impossible. But I’ll do it someday. ”

What comes first? The plot or characters?

characters – I know them all intimately before I start writing about them.

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

“This may sound crazy, but I’ve met so many from George Martin, Anne Rice to Ava K. Michaels. I might like to meet K.F. Breene because I love her work AND judging from her facebook posts she’s sort of like my kindred. She just doesn’t know it. I need to fix that shit. ”

If you could ask that author three questions about their writing, writing process, or books, what would they be? “Lort. I don’t know I think probably how do you balance life with children and sitting down and writing? How do you stay focused and how can I make people like me. She’s very likable, I would like to be likeable. I’m a very nice person really. “

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

“BLURB – and Satan said, “”make them write a synopsis.”” ”

What is your favorite memory so far as an author?

I’m really incredibly blessed in this. I have so many. Meeting Ava K. Michaels in person. Agreeing to create a publishing company with her. Chocolate chip Bundt cake with S.J. Pierce. Smokes and coffee with Jo Michaels (no relation to Ava) But here’s a great reader story. Okay, this is stupid BUT I think it’s when I was in the airport shoving a bagel with cream cheese in my face and someone came up to me and was standing “in my space.” I was really awkward and nervous and looked up with cream cheese on my face and was like, “What?” and she was standing with a copy of Ink: Fine Lines in her hand and said, “You’re Bella.” I was stunned and thought about not fessing up to it because my mouth was full and I had cream cheese on my face. But I said, “Yeah.” And she asked me to sign her book. I was so giddy I almost lost my bagel out of my stomach. So it’s that or the time I was “detained” in Chicago after doing an appearance at Comic Con.

What is your definition of success?

If one person can read one of my books and escape this shit world for a few hours. That right there is all the success I need. Oh and to be able to afford to publish the next book:).
