Interview with Nancy Corrigan

Nancy Corrigan PicWhat do you love about being an author?

I love the freedom to express myself! I’ve always had an active imagination and would constantly be caught daydreaming. Now when I act as if I’m not listening, I can proudly announce, ‘I’m plotting…it’s okay’.

If you could have dinner with any literary character, who would it be and what would you eat?

Lestat from Anne Rice’s Interview with a Vampire. This book was the first paranormal I read beyond fantasy children’s book. I was completely intrigued by his tortured character. I’d want to know everything he’s seen and experienced in life. Of course, I’d make sure I’m not on the menu for dinner, unless he’s going to make me into a vampire too-LOL!

If your books were to be made into a movie, who would you cast as the leads?Beauitiful Mistake cover

For Unexpected Find, Jennifer Lawrence as Jazz and Chris Hemsworth as Rafe. For Beautiful Mistake…I can’t top my cover model…he’s a perfect Devin!!! Lena would be Natalie Portman or somebody similar with a ‘girl-next-door’ look.

Vampires – do you prefer them as sexy leads or blood hungry monsters?

Sexy leads…I’m a sucker for vampire books. I even have one sitting in my WIP folder to finish, but I have too many other projects to work on first.

If you had a time machine, which era would you go back to and why?

I’m fascinated by mythology, Celtic and Welsh in particular. I’d love to visit medieval Europe to experience their culture. It would be a perfect way to research my next series, the Wild Hunt which will be coming to Ellora’s Cave later this year.

What life advice do you wish you’d been given sooner?

Stop worrying about what other people think of you. I’ve learned not everyone is going to like me, how I act, what I do or especially, what I write. I can’t please everyone. Frankly, I don’t want to. Life would be too stressful and too boring if I did. Live your life and as long as you can go to bed at night with a clean conscience, then you can’t ask for more.

If you were a supernatural creature, what would you be and why?

A feline shifter! I love big cats. They’re beautiful, deadly and majestic.

Where do you write best?

Because of the crazy schedule I work on top of my family life, I’ve learned to write anywhere. I have my tablet which I take most places, but I also have a word app on my phone. At home, I write at my kitchen table.

What was the last book you read, and what were your thoughts on it?

True by Laurann Dohner. I love all of her books, but her New Species series is my favorite. This particular book was very well written. I’d highly recommend it.

unexpectedfind_hiresIf you didn’t write in your genre, which other would you prefer and why?

Historical Romance (Medieval). Since I already love the culture and legends of that time period, it’d be my next choice. I hope someday to delve into the genre.

Where can fans find you online?
