Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.
Darlene Kuncytes. I am from Northeast Ohio, born and raised. I live just East of the CLE! I’m a total coffee addict and animal lover who would adopt and save them all if I could! I have loved reading and writing since I can remember. I never wanted to be a princess or a ballerina, I wanted to be Stephen King! lol I love hanging with friends and am fiercely loyal to those I love. I’ve got your back! I am living my dream of being a published author and can not even begin to express how much my readers mean to me!
When you are writing a book, which is harder? The first book in the series or the others after it?
The first one. It has to set the tone for the ones that follow.
When writing a series how do you keep things fresh, for both your readers and also yourself?
I think it stays fresh when the personalities of the characters differ in a lot of ways. And even though it continues a story, the next book has to tell a story that can also stand on its own in so many ways. Different situations and different storylines that intersect is key.
Writing can be an emotionally draining and stressful pursuit. Any tips for aspiring writers?
Write what you love and LOVE what you write. Be true to the muses in your heart and head.
On a typical day, how much time do you spend writing?
Right now, NOT ENOUGH! lol But I try to write as much as I can. It varies for me depending on what else is going on at the time. Life has a great way of interfering with my writing time.
Do you have a favorite character that you have written? If so, who? And what makes them so special.
That’s a really hard one. I love all my characters. In ways, they are each a part of me. But, if I had to choose, I’d say Kat from A Wolf’s Savage Embrace. She is a total smartass, and I love that she would give up anything for those she loves.
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?
Oh wow. That is a great question. I would love to see I’ll Be Seeing You made into a movie. I love the fire between the two characters. As for who would play them…wow. I just can’t think of any celebrity. Maybe Jennifer Lawrence for Katherine, but for the male lead. Wow, that’s really hard, because I have a picture of Cole in my head and not a celebrity that matches it.
What is your definition of success?
Having people love what I do. The stories I tell. There is nothing more satisfying than having someone contact me to say that one of my books touched them and made them fall in love. And that they can’t wait to read more.
Do you have anything you want to share that didn’t fit on one of these questions?
Just to keep reading. TV is easy, and it’s great to binge watch programs and such, but nothing compares to losing yourself in a book. To entering a world that you help create with the author. I can picture my characters in my head, but the really cool thing is that a reader may picture someone entirely different and that is what it’s all about. I may write the books, but a readers imagination helps to bring them alive and that is so freaking cool!
