Hey everyone! I'm here again with another blog tour! We have Ms. Elizabeth Reyes in my blog today. She's very gracious to accept this interview. And now let's get to know more about the author of 'The Moreno Brothers Series'
- Can you tell us something about yourself that we don't know yet?
I was this close to becoming a court interpreter. I’d taken all the online classes studied and passed the first part of the test. (there are three parts) I then began to study for the second part at the same time I started doing rewrites of Forever Mine. (for fun) When I decided to publish I put my studying aside to concentrate on marketing my book and write the second one. Best decision I’ve made to date. =)
- When did you realize you waned to write a book?
I decided I wanted to write a book when I was in high school and I started to. I decided I wanted to finish said book when I was able to quit my job and be a stay home mom, MANY years later.
- What did you do to get your books published?
I just inquired with others in my critique site who had done it and followed their lead. Unlike many, I’ve never queried an agent or a publisher. At my age I just didn’t have the patience to wait.
- What is the hardest part of being an author?
Self doubt. As much work as I put into something and finally feel it is ready there will always be that little question in the back of my head when I’m getting ready to publish. “Is it good enough? Is it really ready?”
- Where do you get the inspiration to give life to your characters?
The story usually just comes to me. The type of personality that is going to handle the characters in the story comes from a mixture of a lot of things. People I know, characters on television, a movie books I’ve read. I like to mesh different personality traits to create a certain character and make them unique.
And now the fun part.
- When the word hunk is uttered who is the first person that comes to mind?
My husband of course Ha! Okay now that he’s not listening Channing Tatum is one of my favorites. He so represents the mixture of intensity I often try to get across on papyer with their hunkiness. Yes I realize I just made up a word. I’m looking to coin the phrase Intense hunkiness. Lol
- What is your all time favorite movie?
I have many but I’d have to say Grease. I can watch that over and over and over. Danny Zucko is the ultimate high school alpha. *sigh* I didn’t do it on purpose but when I look at the cover of Forever Mine now it often reminds me of Grease. =)
- Who is a HOT celebrity you would want to marry?
Hypothetically, right? Being that I’m already married to the most wonderful man in the world… blah blah blah. Did I mention Channing? lol
- If you are going to Heaven who is the one person you’d take with you?
This one seriously my husband. <3
If you are going to Hell who is the one person you’d take with you?
Once again, My hubby, oh yeah he’s coming with me!
And the final question
- What is next for Ms. Elizabeth Reyes?
I’m currently working on my next series 5th Street. About a group of young aspiring boxers out of Los Angeles who one by one will meet their match outside the ring. But this year will also see spin offs from The Moreno Brother series as well as a few stand alones.
Thank you Ms. Elizabeth Reyes for doing this interview. It was really fun! And I gotta say that I loved your books!
