M&M Makin' the Rounds

August 27, 2010

Big thanks to Cathryn Cade for letting us come here and play today!
We’ll get started with our first Q&A.
Psst, look at the weird kid in the corner!
Q: Was writing something you always wanted to do? At what age did you write your first book?
Michelle: Writing is something I’ve always done, but nothing I really took seriously until I was older. My focus was on photography since my dad gave me my first camera when I was ten. It was probably around 8th grade that I considered writing, until a not-so-helpful teacher crushed that dream due to the violent nature of my Thanksgiving story. I still maintain a mass murder horror story is better than “oh, no, the turkey is burnt and grandpa got a flat tire!” But that could just be me. I picked fiction writing up again after High School, though I did get a writing scholarship for other stuff.
Mandy: I wrote my first book just over six years ago. It was Daughter of Darkness. No. I’d never really even considered writing before I sat down and did it. I’d grown up firmly believing I’d be a commercial artist and work in the field of art. I’m not sure how it was that writing never entered my mind. Now that I do it for a living, I can’t imagine doing anything but. I love everything about it. The way it lets me flex my creative muscles. The freedom it gives me to write whatever comes to mind and the ability to interact with readers. I really love getting to meet new people and travel. All in all, it’s a dream job and I have no complaints. Okay one, I wish Hugh Jackman would be a cover model for me. That’s it.
