Today on I’m Booked! You will be making a gentle stop on the Got Caged? blog tour where I will be hosting an interview with the author of the series, Amber Lynn Natusch. For those who have been following the tour or who have indeed read or heard of the book, this is great chance to find out something new about the series and its writer. If this is the first time you’ve seen this title then this is also great, if you’re looking for a new book to read.
So let the questions begin!
What inspired you to write this series?
Pregnancy hormones, insane dreams, and a challenge set forth by my office manager. The best way to get me to do something is to tell me that I can't.
It all started from there and snowballed into me becoming an Indie author and trying to sort out how to fit this new career into my life.
How did you decide on the title Caged?
The title came from a recurring theme in the first book as well as the overall series. It's both literal and metaphoric, and I think it sets the tone well for what readers who purchase it will be in for.
What are some of your favourite books?
Fever series by Karen Marie Moning
Sunshine by Robin McKinley
Angelfall by Susan Ee
Mercy Thompson series by Patricia Briggs (the first 3 books in particular as the series is losing its edge for me)
Oh, the Places You'll Go by Dr. Seuss (I think it has a great message for kids AND adults)
What is the most difficult part of writing for you?
Finding time. I run a health care practice with my husband and have a two-year-old son. Writing time consists of me locking myself in my bathroom for the most part :)
If you could meet any of your characters who would it be?
Yikes! Tough question... I would want to pick many of them for various reasons, but, in the end, I would pick Sean. He's enigmatic, impossible to read, and plays it close to the chest. I think I would want to meet him most because I need to see if I could handle him any better than the other characters in my series. Of course, I think I'm going to be able to deal with him without issue, but, in reality, I'm not so sure that's the case. He's a cagey bugger for sure, and even I, with my inflated sense of confidence, might be in over my head.
- End of Interview
I think I was a bit mean with the last question. I know if I wrote a book I would have trouble answering it. But now you know a little about Amber Lynn Natusch what do you think?
