~ ~ ~

Describe yourself in 3 words.
Chaotic. Hardworking. Weird.


If you could have written any book which book would it be and why?
My own books :P haha, I have so many ideas still floating around in my head that it makes me crazy and excited at the same time. Oh, the amount of books I will throw your way ... just you wait!


Who is your favourite of your own characters (either already written or still in your head) and why?
Hmm ... I think it would be Mr. X, but Phoenix from Stalker comes in at a close second. ;)

Louise ~ Yep, Phoenix would definitely be a good choice. Yum!


Best book you have read so far this year?
I haven't read many books so far this year :( I know, so bad, I just have so little time. But if I have to choose, I'd say Dirty Bad Wrong by Jade West. :)

Louise ~ Ooo me too, me too. Fantastic book!


Are there any other authors who inspire you?
Hmm ... I think mostly Lauren DeStefano due to her writing style, but also J.K. Rowling for the same reason. :) I love the way they craft their stories!


Favourite thing that's been said about one of your books?
I don't remember the exact words, but it went something like this:


"OMGGGG, I LOVED YOUR BOOK, SO SO MUCH, I LITERALLY DIED AT THE END, BUT THEN IT ALL CAME TOGETHER AND I LOVED IT SO MUCH MORE!!
PS: Did they get together again, in the end? I HAVE TO KNOW!"


It made me giggle so much :P it was fun and sweet at the same time, the way people care so much about my characters really means a lot to me. I LOVE fans like that <3

What does the next twelve months look like in your book world?
Lots and lots of writing :P I have plenty more books planned. After Stalker comes Twenty-One (21), and then another dark romance novel, after which all the characters in the same world will come together (maybe). I have a lot of ideas, but I don't have any specifics on paper yet. Rest assured, they will all be just as awesome ;)


Who is your current book boyfriend and who is your all time, old faithful, go to book boyfriend?
My current Book Boyfriend is actually Phoenix :P I just love him so much <3. But my go to book boyfriend is still Mr. X, because ... well, you'll know if you read the book!

Louise ~ Yep, still feeling it with Phoenix, that man is ├╝ber hot and such a bad boy!

If you were stuck on an island with just one paperback book, which book would it be?
Harry Potter :D hahah, I just love it. No shame.

Favorite line from a book.
I don't often remember lines, so this is a tough cookie for me :P Sorry.


What's your go to karaoke song?
Don't have one, I actually abhor karaoke :P

Louise ~ *Runs off and hides the mic, and trips over Britney CD's*

You've opened up your wardrobe and your clothes aren't there, instead it's your dream world! You walk through, what's the first thing you see?
Hogwarts :D hahahahahaha


As a reader, what's your favorite genre to get stuck into?
Paranormal Romance :) But I am a sucker for good smut too!


Whats the best and worst advice you've ever recieved?
Best: Just keep writing
Worst: Just keep writing
Sometimes it works, and sometimes you just need a break or focus on marketing instead :P it doesn't always work when you need it to, but that's okay. Adjust every day <3


What words do you love to use and see in books and what words do you hate to use / see?
I love comparisons and figure of speech. I hate words like 'moist' and 'mound'. But worst of all ... fanny or cunt. I just cannot find them sexy. At all.

Louise ~ Ewww me too. Fanny seems so British, and C*** is so nasty I can't even spell it out properly!

If you had one superpower, what would it be?
Fly :) I often dream of this.


Most underrated author / book you've read?
Lauren DeStefano and Cynthia Hand. They write such awesome books, but not a lot of people know about them. :)

Louise ~ I've read Lauren DeStefano, and have Cynthia Hand downloaded. They are to me, classic PNR. My first love in books.
