This is my week to host on Unicorn Bell, the writing and critique blog I'm honored to co-host with several other AMAZING writers and authors. I interviewed several authors this week and I've decided to give you a teaser interview to entice you to want to head over to UB to check out the full. Hope you stop by!
For today, I have an interview with New Adult author, Juliana Haygert.
About the Author:
While Juliana Haygert dreams of being Wonder Woman, Buffy, or a blood elf shadow priest, she settles for the less exciting—but equally gratifying—life of a wife, mother, and author. Thousands of miles away from her former home in Brazil, she now resides in Connecticut and spends her days writing about kick-ass heroines and the heroes who drive them crazy.
You are the author of several New Adult novels. How do you receive inspiration for your novels?
From everywhere. My problem is actually having too many ideas and not having time to write them all! Music and movies are big sources of ideas.
But it really comes from anywhere. For example:
For my fantasy trilogy, the idea came from a sentence my husband said, about gods not being immortals.
For The Breaking Series, was several things—mainly Britney Spears’ music video for her song Radar, and Facundo Pieres (a famous polo player) and his family.
For Playing Pretend, the idea came from having my heroine meet the love of her life during spring break.
List five adjectives to describe yourself.
Happy, friendly, caring, irritated, impatient.
What is the most unique place you’ve ever visited?
I can’t think of any unique place, but I can think of a unique experience in a great place.
When I was 12 and 13 years old, I spent my summers in Rio de Janeiro, with friends my age (no adults), taking dance classes from 8am to 8pm, 6 days a week, with the Municipal Ballet (the best dance company in Brazil). It sounds tiring, and it certainly was, but I loved dance so much (still do), it was perfect.
