Author Interview: Elle A. Rose
Tell us a little bit about yourself.
This is a scary question! (Truthfully? The voices in my head tell me to write, so I do) Okay, well, I'm the author of The Chronicles of Amber Harris-my first YA series-and Hideaway Hill a romance novel. I'm currently turning a short story I wrote for an anthology into a sci-fi novel and I'm editing my latest romance novel.
Please tell us in one sentence only, why we should read your book.
Because Amber freaking rocks, enough said!
What sparked the idea for your novel?
The idea for Last Teardrop came from my love of vampires. There's always a running storyline in my head-it's like an on going movie. It keeps going and going, but I've realized that once I write it out, it goes away. Which makes room for new titles (do you see the headlines? Coming soon to Elle's head). One day, I was reading this one book (I won't say which one) and decided that I could do this too! I had a story and thought it would be neat to try and share it with others.
Your favourite authors?
There are so many authors that have touched my heart. I think sometimes when asked this question many will give you names of classic writers and I do love the classic works, but my favorite authors will include: Stephenie Meyer, Rachel Caine, Richelle Mead (are you seeing a trend? Vampires!!!) Of course there are more, but I think these are my top 3.
If you could have dinner with one person, dead or alive, who would it be and why?
If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be my granddad. I miss him so much and I would love the chance to tell him for the last time how much I love him.
If you could travel back in time to a certain event in history, what would it be?
One event I would love to go back and experience is the creation of pickles-dill pickles to be precise. I would like to shake the inventor's hand! Best food ever!
Favourite fictional character?
Can I choose more than one? The minions from "Despicable Me". I love those little guys!
If you could trade places with any other person for a week, famous or not famous, living or dead, real or fictional. With whom would it be?
I have no clue. I'd rather not trade places with anyone, however if they were rich, I'd be happy to swap bank accounts for a week so I could live it up with my own family and friends.
What is the last book you read?
I read 3-4 books at a time. Fall of Night, by Rachel Caine and Bloody Little Secrets, by Karly Kirkpatrick are the last two book added to the Read status.
Thank you Jenny for this interview and for sharing my book with your blog!
