Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.
Michel Prince, writer of books, lover of football, and crazy pillow lady.
When you are writing a book, which is harder? The first book in the series or the others after it?
Yes. — if I think/know it’s going to be a series the first is hardest because I need to lay a foundation for the others (it will go off track but I want to pretend I have a map) if it turns into a series I need to keep going back to make sure I’m staying true to the characters.
When writing a series how do you keep things fresh, for both your readers and also yourself?
If I’m bored you’re bored. If there is nothing to evolve with the older characters along with the new then it’s time to end. Even your favorite cake gets old if you eat it every day, so if I can’t toss a few berries on top I’ll keep it going.
Writing can be an emotionally draining and stressful pursuit. Any tips for aspiring writers?
Take your breaks when needed, but give yourself a time to return to writing. Stepping away is easy, coming back is hard.
On a typical day, how much time do you spend writing?
I’ve had to move to only writing on certain days and then I write for 6 to 8 hours, but I only get that 3, maybe 4 times a week sadly.
Do you have a favorite character that you have written? If so, who? And what makes them so special.
Esme Carmichael from my Love by the Yard series. Highly intelligent, bored easily, with a quick wit and love of buffets.
If any of your books were to be made into a movie, who are the celebrities that would star in it? What book and who?
Jessica Biel -Joss, Betty White RIP-Hilde, Gary Dourdan or Chiwetel Ejifor -Slaton, Josh Dummal-Carlton for Amara Acquired
