We are hear today chatting with Melissa McClone about her Chocolate Shop Series, check out our interview and the prize that she is giving away today on The Simple Things in Life.
What made you want to be an author? I love books. Reading
has been a huge part of my life for as long as I can remember, and I thought
about writing a romance novel in high school although being a screenplay writer
was more my dream. I don’t know that I ever thought about wanting to be an
author per se. When I finally started writing (after reading a story I didn’t
like), I just wanted to see if I could finish a book and sell it. I fell in
love with writing, and that was it.
2. What inspires
you to write your stories?
I get a kernel of an
idea and I want to see what happens, but to be honest, writing is my career and
our family budget counts on what I make, so that inspires me to write a lot!
you have a favorite author?
I buy Nelson DeMille’s
novels in hardcover so I’d say he’s my favorite!
