Continuing a new feature at Here Be Magic - periodic interviews with the Authors who create the magic. Our next interviewee is Angela Campbell, whose most recent book is Cry Wolf.
1. Tell us a little about yourself:
In a nutshell, I’m just your typical lifelong reader who always wanted to cross that bridge and become an author herself. For my day job, I’m a newspaper journalist, but I’ve been writing fiction in my spare time for as long as I can remember. No husband. No kids. Just me and one very spoiled cat who surely thinks I’m crazy because I’m always pitching my story ideas to her for practice.
2. What prompted you to start writing?
My childhood love of movies – I would come home from the theater and write my own version of what I’d seen, then act it out with my stuffed animals.
3. Which three books would you take to a deserted island and why?
The Bible, Pride and Prejudice and The Idiot's Guide to Wilderness Survival. Sustenance for the soul, the heart and, well, I’d like to keep breathing for as long as possible, you know?
4. Which five people (real, fictional, historical) would you invite to dinner and why?
Elvis Presley, Jane Austen, Charlie Chaplin, Abraham Lincoln and Clark Kent – because they are all people I greatly admire and can imagine having fun conversations with.
5. What’s your guilty pleasure?
Comic books. I have a small collection and know way too much about superheroes to ever be considered cool.
Favorite TV Show: Supernatural or Castle – I simply can’t choose between them
Favorite Movie: “It’s a Wonderful Life”
Cats or Dogs? Both! But I only have a cat
Morning person or evening person: Evening
Favorite food: Pizza!
Favorite time of the year: Fall
7. Finish this sentence “I believe in the Magic of……”
I believe in the magic of the human spirit. It might sound cliché, but I truly believe nothing is impossible if we open our hearts and minds and work toward our goals. I’ve seen people accomplish amazing things against incredible obstacles!
8. What are you working on next?
I’ve finished the first book in a paranormal romance series I hope to make a trilogy, and I’m almost finished with a contemporary romance that involves a pet psychic, a feisty feline, a mischievous canine and a woman who loves all three.
Where should I send the thank you cards? Seriously. You guys rock!
