Author of "Inner Demon : Book I"
Author of "Act of A Demon : Book II"
What can we call you (name)?
Lucia is fine. Lady Lucia just makes it sound sexy...*wiggles eyebrows*
Where are you from?
I am from Texas, USA. Don't you dare picture me as a cowgirl 'cause I don't roll that way! I'm more on the Mexican border side than the redneck side.
What is your favorite hobby?
Reading...but I feel like that falls under writing as well since I believe both go hand in hand together.
I also like to play video games. :D
Coffee or tea?
Tea! Oh my god...Tea! I love almost any type of tea, especially the ones accented with fruit flavors!
I was born on Father's Day! :D
What book(s) are you reading now?
Wattpad wise, I'm reading a lot, and I'm feeling a tad lazy at the moment to name them. Plus, I'd feel bad if I left some of the titles out.
Non-Wattpad...I'm rereading A Song of Ice and Fire.
Who are your favorite Wattpad authors?
I hoped I spelled their names right. Squished names confuse me. Also hope I didn’t leave anyone out…>.<
When and why did you start writing?
I remember in fourth grade I wrote a story about a puppy being stuck in a desk...don't ask. I had so much fun reading it and was so proud of my little "twist" in the story that I just wanted to write more, and I took off from there.
I did tweak with fanfiction before settling into writing my original fiction. It was good practice in organizing a novel at least. Sorta…
Is there a specific genre that you like to read/write?
I like Supernatural - vampire, werewolves, spirits, demons, angels, witches, etc..etc... It's been hard for me to find good books on the subject lately, both in Wattpad and not. Haven’t read a good one in quite a bit. :/
What or who inspires you in your work?
Whenever I read a story I really like --it can be by anyone and about anything-- it inspires me to write something.
I have to admit anime does inspire me at times too; I try for my stories not to sound too animeish, but meh...I know it's there sometimes, mostly unintentionally. It wasn't until I got feedback from people here in Wattpad that I noticed. ^^;
Can you tell us a bit about your current story and why people would want to read it?
Because it's awesome! (Conceited much?)
Nah, honestly, it's what I would like to see in a romance/ supernatural story. I wanted to see more than an emotional teen going through phases of feelings with a supernatural backdrop. If supernatural beings are going to exist in a story, I want to see fighting and blood, especially if demons are at work. Which in my story there are plenty.
I also wanted to see a female protagonist that learns from what’s around her and when bestowed with a magical gift doesn’t immediately pick it up and is a master at using it.
So if you want a supernatural story that has a tad of action and blood --with romantic fluff and drama here and there, it’s still a romance :P-- then Inner Demon may be what you're looking for.
Is there a message for your readers in your work?
I'd like to encourage those reading to think beyond the stereotypical elements that can be found in books.
Most believed Mundus was a "good" demon at heart and didn't really want to kill people. Ya know...the whole "misunderstood bad guy" that's actually "good", but I was told by readers they were (pleasantly) shocked when Mundus would kill people even when he knew Reyna didn't like it and would ask him not to do so.
Just ‘cause a supernatural being is a protagonist doesn’t mean he/she is automatically going to be “good” and stuff.
So...keep your mind an open slate for all books. :D
Do you have any advice for other writers?
It may sound trivial or unimportant but PRACTICE. WRITE EVERYDAY! >.<
Go online and find little writing prompts. Even if you don't know what you're going to write...even if you may not work on your "baby" write something for the day. It helps keep the rust away. Haha.
Is there anything else you would like add?
Jedi in the streets; Sith in the sheets!
Seriously...this was fun and thanks for the interview/review. ^^
