When did you first learn that you wanted to be a writer. Was it just a natural instinct or did you find it later in life.
GM: My sixth grade English teacher gave us a writing assignment for homework. I believe it was a natural instinct and I’ve been hooked on creating worlds ever since. Getting to know the characters, feeling all their emotions and falling in love with them, while having control of their lives…what a god complex! Writing is addictive and while others read as a release from real-world worries, I write to escape reality.
Are you a big reader? If so do you think that had anything to do with becoming a author. GM: Huge reader, but no, reading had nothing to do with my love of writing. I wasn’t much of a reader until my grandmother gave me a romance book at the age of 13. That’s when I became a huge reader. I was writing at the age of 11.
Which of your books was the easiest/hardest to write?GM: Hardest book was Pandora’s Box because I was world building. Easiest book was Hell’s Phoenix because there was no more world and all storyline.
Which of your characters is your favourite?GM: I’d have to say Madison because she’s a mother just like I am, so I can relate to her with ease.
What were the challenges in bringing your book to life?GM: Crafting a new ideology of Hell and Biblical principles, while creating new and different paranormal creatures.
What was the hardest part of writing your book?GM: Finding the time to write. I’m the mother of a very active, but young family, so making the time to write can sometimes be difficult.
What inspired you to write your first book?GM: Road to Hell was spawned from a nightmare where a demon/ghost was gunning for my kids. After I woke up and began to realize it was just a dream, I got to thinking…the worst nightmare any parent can endure is when their child is harmed or endangered and there’s nothing we can do about it, but only watch it happen. I experienced this in real life when my eldest started having grand mal seizures. The absolute helplessness of being able to do nothing is crushing. I felt like a failure for years—which is crazy—but that’s what mom’s do, we worry and blame ourselves even when we shouldn’t.
But the nightmare got me to thinking “what if” it was something paranormal and not medical affecting her child? How would she deal with one crisis after another, realizing there is nothing she can do to change what he comes from within? To what lengths would she go to save her child? And that was the inspiration behind the Road to Hell series.
