Interview with Mark Hopkins, Author of Deceit: A Life of Lies

What can you tell us about your new release, Deceit: A Life of Lies?

This book follows the investigation in a small texas town torn apart by a series of brutal murders. The lead detective and criminal profiler, both, are unable to determine if they have the correct man, or if the criminal is still on the run. There is a major twist in the book, which will throw off readers entirely, leading to the main, dramatic climax.

What or who inspired you to become an author?

Many people have inspired me. Primarily my family and my third grade teacher. They all have instilled in me , over the years, the importance of literacy and utilizing my brain in its entirety.

What’s on your top 5 list for the best books you’ve ever read?

First and foremost, Gone With The Wind. Followed by: Fahrenheit 451, Murder on Orient Express, In Cold Blood, Carrie

Say you’re the host of a literary talk show. Who would be your first guest? What would you want to ask?

Stephen King. How do you keep your ideas flowing over the many years you’ve written?

What’s your favorite thing about writing?

Creating. The ability to create something from my brain that will, hopefully, be entertaining to every reader.

What is a typical day like for you?

Well, I am a nurse consultant, so I work until the evening hours. Then, once I’m home and work is sorted, I begin writing. I work best in the “wee” hours of the morning when everyone is asleep, and there’s total silence.

What scene in Deceit: A Life of Lies was your favorite to write?

The last chapter. I feel the entire book was very exciting and thrilling to write, but the last chapter was my favorite. It tied the entire piece together, and the ending twist made me want to read the book I’ve just written again and again.

Do you have a motto, quote or philosophy you live by?

From the words of my grandmother: “Anyone can be common, so be uncommon.”

What can you tell us about your new release, Dance For Me?

It’s a Bully romance. There are a lot of bully aspects but also an enemies to lovers vibe.

What or who inspired you to become an author?

I had so many thoughts in my head that I just wanted to get them down on paper.

What’s on your top 5 list for the best books you’ve ever read?

I honestly don’t read much. I know, I know it’s weird LOL.

Say you’re the host of a literary talk show. Who would be your first guest? What would you want to ask?

Carian Cole! She has always been a huge ear for me when I need her. I would just ask her to keep doing what she does. She’s amazing.

What’s your favorite thing about writing?

I get to put my ideas and thoughts into stories. A lot of people don’t know but I write when I’m depressed which results in darker books.

What is a typical day like for you?

A typical day for me is getting my kids off to school and me in front of my computer. I write full time.

What scene in Dance For Me was your favorite to write?

By far the Pool house scene! It was HOT.

Just never give up. Even when you want to, don’t. There is always something better to come.

Interview with Kennedy Layne, Author of Baffling Blend

What can you tell us about your new release, Baffling Blend?

Welcome to Paramour Bay! Baffling Blend is part of the Paramour Bay Mysteries. These cozy mysteries take place in a quaint coastal town in Connecticut, where a young woman discovers that she’s inherited a charming tea shop and an eerie cottage on the edge of town. Shenanigans ensue when Raven Marigold discovers that she’s a witch. This series is filled with enchanting whodunits and delightful mysteries that you won’t want to miss!

What or who inspired you to become an author?

I’ve been an avid reader from the time I was a little girl and happened to discover Nancy Drew books in the school library. I mean, who wouldn’t want to be Nancy Drew?

What’s on your top 5 list for the best books you’ve ever read?

I would say every single book in the Nancy Drew mysteries, but also the Mayfair Witches by Anne Rice. They aren’t cozy mysteries, but there is something very addicting about the world created in the series. I highly recommend them to anyone!

Say you’re the host of a literary talk show. Who would be your first guest? What would you want to ask?

I would probably ask Anne Rice to be my first guest. I’d love to know about her writing process and what prompted her to create the Mayfair Witches.

What’s your favorite thing about writing?

I don’t plot, but instead open up a word document and let the words flow from my fingers. My favorite part about writing is creating a mystery that surprises even me at the end!

What is a typical day like for you?

A typical day for me always, always starts off with coffee. I can’t function without the magical brew! While enjoying my first cup, I check my emails and messages before doing a bit of admin work. I also Skype with other authors on a daily basis. Being an author doesn’t mean he or she has to be isolated from others. Once I make my second cup, I curl up on the couch in front of my fireplace and start my writing day. Sometimes I can finish as early as two o’clock and other times it can be late in the evening.

What scene in Baffling Blend was your favorite to write?

Any scene involving Leo! He is Raven’s familiar, and I have such a fun time writing his quirky and snarky remarks. Truthfully, he’s my favorite character to write in the entire series!

Do you have a motto, quote or philosophy you live by?

Very simply put: “Never give up.”
