Q & A with Louisa Vincenza
Q. What books do you enjoy reading? Who are your favorite authors?
A. I read romance and all its sub genres - mystery, suspense, paranormal, historical, contemporary and erotica.
Some of my favorite authors include J. R. Ward, Kresley Cole, Lauren Blakely, Lisa Kleypas, Brenda Novak, Marie Force, and Karen Rose.
Q. What was your favorite childhood book?
A. The Witch of Blackbird Pond. I remember falling in love with that book as a young girl. I have read it several times. Love the characters, Kit and Nat.
Q. What books have you read more than once in your life?
A. The Witch of Blackbird Pond, is one. I have reread Nora Roberts' Circle trilogy many, many times. I love this trilogy. Love all the characters - Hoyt and Glenna, Blair and Larkin, but especially love Cian and Moira.
Q. What book (or books) are you currently reading?
A. I'm currently reading Say No More, by Karen Rose.
Q. Do you prefer ebooks, printed books, or audiobooks most of the time?
A. I still prefer printed books.
Q. Have you always enjoyed reading?
A. Yes. I remember wanting to learn how to read as a little girl. I couldn't wait. I loved story time.
Q. What about writing? Have you always been interested in writing?
A. Yes. As a little girl, I would write out stories and illustrate them. As I got older, I started writing poetry. It wasn't until I was an adult, that I started writing stories again.
Q. How many books have you written, and do you have a favorite?
A. I have written two novellas and two full length novels. Currently working on my third novel. One of my full length novels, Taking a Chance on Love, was originally a novella, but I lengthened it. And my favorite book that I've written is Magic & Mayhem. I love Lucy and Deklan.
Q. Which of your characters do you relate to/like the most and why?
A. I like Lucy the most. I love her attitude, her strength, her sense of humor. She's suffered a terrible loss, and has been able to keep her heart, her soul.
Q. How long did it take you to write Magic & Mayhem?
A. Magic & Mayhem took almost a year to write. Some scenes, like the opening scene, came quickly, others were like pulling teeth. That opening scene, where Lucy and Deklan meet for the first time just appeared in my mind, and I was immediately intrigued by these characters. I had to find out what happened with them.
Q. Do you play music as you write?
A. Yes, sometimes. If I do, it's classical/instrumental.
Q. What are some of your interests outside of writing?
A. Reading, of course. Movies, TV, games. The usual things.
