This week's Intro on Author is on Andie Brock and her latest release The Shock Cassano BabyThere's a giveaway of  one signed copy each of The Last Heir of Monterrato and The Sheikh's Wedding Contract to two commenters! So go ahead and comment!

What are a few things we would find on your desk?
1)      A whiteboard propped up against the wall, a large notepad, post-it notes, a pen holder in the shape of an over-sized pencil sharpener and frequently a ginger cat, standing right in front of the screen.
What motivates you to write?
2)      At the moment it’s deadlines! But before I was lucky enough to be in this position it was the love of being able to create something of nothing but my imagination. Seeing that come to fruition in the shape of an actual physical book is still a tremendous thrill.
Share something about yourself no one else knows?
3)      I’m related to Sir Henry Irving, the famous Victorian actor and allegedly the inspiration for Count Dracula. He and Bram Stoker were friends. I actually look quite like him – which isn’t necessarily a good thing...
What was your favorite scene to write?
4)      My favourite scene is the denouement at the end (I like that word J). Orlando and Isobel come face to face up on the battlements of the castello. The wind is whipping at their hair and their clothes, cracking the flag above their heads. It’s a really powerful scene and I loved wringing out every last scrap of emotion before setting them free to accept their love for each other.
Tell us about your book…



      In The Shock Cassano Baby two strong willed people have their lives turned upside down by an unexpected pregnancy. Capable business woman Isobel thinks she will raise the child alone but Orlando has other ideas and he is a man used to getting his own way! Together they try to forge a relationship for the sake of their unborn child but the blistering attraction between them only adds to their problems. For both have a past that must be confronted if they are to ever find a future together.

    1. You too Chrys. We have two ginger cats, still not a year old but I'm guessing they must be fully grown. One in particular loves to watch me write!

  6. Nice interview, ladies! Andie's last response... regarding the "fangs" convinces me that she's my kinda gal. :) Our desks have something in common, too. There are currently two cats sitting on mine.

    Sounds like a terrific book. Here's wishing you much success with it.

  7. Count Dracula? That's so cool. And to have an ancestor that was friends with Bram Stoker is very cool.

  10. I guess at a certain point deadlines really is what pushes all authors to keep writing and working. But it's also good to have something outside of that which motivates them and so long as writing stays fun.

  11. Hi Olivia-Savannah. Yes, you are right. It's deadlines that keep you on track and make you focus, but it's the love of writing and story telling that keep you coming back for more!

  17. That's pretty cool that you're relating to Sir Irving. Was it his appearance that served as the inspiration for Count Dracula?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yes. Bram was inspired by his tall, gaunt appearance, plus the fact that as an actor Irving was also a kind of shape-shifter. Apparently Irving read a draft of Dracula and pronounced it 'dreadful!' Hmmm...

  18. I also like the unraveling at the end. Great interview. Congrats to Andie.

    1. Thanks Medeia! Unravelling is a good word - as a writer it's quite easy to get into a tangle! But it's very satisfying to finally get it all out there and laid bare.
