#WOTR23 #attendingauthor #authorspotlight – Tricia Andersen

Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.

My name is Tricia Andersen and I am an author from Iowa. I write paranormal, Greek gods, contemporary, historical , and fighter romance. I have three kids and one four legged baby. I’m also a huge advocate and fan of women’s wrestling and love to travel with my husband.

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

I think the first book in a series is harder. Once the first book is done, I already have established characters and locations. From there I just need to give the book its own story.

When writing a series how do you keep things fresh, for both your readers and also yourself?

I like to try to write stories that are different than what are on the market. I love to explore genres that I was interested in college and incorporate it into my writing.

Writing can be an emotionally draining and stressful pursuit. Any tips for aspiring writers?

Take time for yourself. Find time to take a break or set a reward for yourself. And never give up on what you love.

On a typical day, how much time do you spend writing?

I spend an hour or two writing each day. I do wish it was more.

Do you have a favorite character that you have written? If so, who? And what makes them so special.

Freddy from the Gods of DC series. He loves without judgement and sticks up for the entire family.

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?

I always envisioned current WWE announcer Wade Barrett as Sloan O’Riley. I would love to see KJ Apa as Freddy.

What is your definition of success?

Being happy with what you are doing to the point that it’s all you want to do.
