[SK]: Hi Zoey and welcome! I’m sure readers are interested in learning about what driving force led you to write Paranormal. Tell us about it.
[ZD]: Paranormal is an amazing genre! I love paranormal books (thanks Lestat and Edward) and I love the idea that no matter what I think about, I can make it a reality in paranormal. There are no limits to the mind and paranormal allows those limits to be expressed.
Although in my paranormal mind, though things are not of this world, they have to be believable in some fashion or another. For example: Twilight. Stephenie Meyer’s vampires are so everyday, they make you believe that they really do exist.
[SK]: Speaking of books, why don’t you talk about your top three favorite books in the genre and what makes them stand out for you.
[ZD}: The Black Dagger Brotherhood Series – Again, a story that feels so realistic that you can actually believe that in Caldwell New York, there is a large house of Vampires walking amongst us. That and I LOVE the way J.R. Ward has created her alternate universe of vampires and lessors to make the story complete and realistic. Plus I LOVE the Brothers! In case you’re curious Vishous, Butch, Zsadist are my FAVES! <3
The Vampire Chronicles – Anne Rice – Because Anne has an AMAZING way with her vampires and she is the pioneer that turned me into the paranormal lover that I am today.
Lost Souls – Poppy Z. Brite – This was the FIRST ever vampire novel I read as a teenager, probably 16 or 17. My uncle had given it to me, told me that I should read it, and so I did. The story is dark, but entertaining, who doesn’t love Vampires, in New Orleans during Mardis Gras. I highly recommend this book.
[SK]: Very cool. Describe your favorite experience when interacting with readers of your series.
[ZD]: This is impossible to narrow down one experience because all of this is still so new to me. The Reason Series is a 4 part novella series that follows my debut novel Finding Love’s Wings released in May 2013. So right now EVERY reader experience is a favorite to me. But the ones that stand out the most, are those who approach me and tell me how much they can relate to Vivienne and the struggles she has endured, then they tell me how things got better for them too. The heart is an amazing organ, physically and figuratively, so seeing someone relate to my characters is overwhelmingly amazing as far as I’m concerned.
[SK]: Thank you so much for joining us today! Please come back and visit again. Read on everyone for more on this series!
