VBT - Defying Fate By Lola James with Interview


1) First, tell us about yourself – where you live, your family, and those sorts of details.

I am a full-time: Mother, HR Manager, and procrastinator. I live in Los Angeles; I love books with vampires and movies with chainsaws. I am a Pisces and I drink my whiskey neat.

2) How long have you been writing?

I’ve been writing stories since 11 but I’ve been writing to be published for about five years.

3) Do you have a favorite place to write?

Ironically, I love to write in coffee shops. The smell of the coffee and the busy of conversation is the white noise I need to write.

4) Why did you decide to write Defying Fate?

It is the second book in the trilogy. Megan’s growth in this book is a far cry from the girl that she was in book one. I am a big believer of Fate. Everything happens for a reason and in this book Fate takes the lead.

5) Who is your favorite character in your book and why?

Would it be bad if I said my Villain? Because not only is Nicoleta maniacal but also she is the best dressed in the book.

6) How about your least favorite character?  What makes them less appealing to you?

Morgan is sometimes because she is the super frilly girlie and I am not. Although, I love pink.

7) Do you proofread/edit your own books or do you get someone to do that for you?

Oh no, I hire editors and proofreaders. I am not perfect nor is any editor so I know that as many knowledgeable hands that can read it is better than none.

8)      What do you like to do when you’re not writing?

Eat. I am a foodie. I wish I could write for a food magazine. To get paid to write and eat… What a lucky job.

9) Do you read much and if so who are your favorite authors?

I use to read non-stop but the writing and being an author happened. Haha! I love the Fever Series by Karen Marie-Moning, Jeaniene frost, and Amanda Hocking.

10) What question do you wish that someone would ask about your book, but nobody has? Write it out here, and then answer it.

What made you choose a Dhampir as the lead supernatural creature?

I had read book after book filled with vampires and I wanted to read something a little different. The book bordered being a contemporary romance because there are minimal paranormal instances.
