Last time we spoke you’d just released Divinity, can you can give us an update as to what has happened to you since?
Since we last spoke, I’ve had the launch party for Divinity. It was held at The Muse Writers Center in Norfolk, VA where I’d attended many workshops and made many critique partners. It was a great party! Other than that, mostly work…
Will there be any more books in this series?
Yes, I am currently working on the sequel, and beyond that there is one more book. So a trilogy all in all, but there will be an opening for a second trilogy, too.
Tough question…is there anything, looking back, that you would have changed in the book?
I think I didn’t tie up the stalker thread as much as I would have liked, and if I had it to do over again I would have firmed that up as a mystery for the angels to solve almost like a police procedural. It’s like that loosely, but I would have liked to make the story stronger around that point.
What are you working on at the moment?
The sequel to DIVINITY, which I have tentatively called TREACHERY.
What’s the one question, in interviews, that you dread being asked?
Wait a minute. If I tell you will you ask it?
How has being an author changed your life?
I think it’s mostly just given me an outlet for all those things I observe that a lot of people don’t. And it has really made my movie and TV viewing a lot different. I more closely follow character development than I ever did before, making careful note when something works well.
Supernatural. Because Dean. Of course, he needs a little more rescuing this year than most, but still.
Halloween is rearing it’s spooky head – will you be dressing up this year? And if so, as what?
I think that I will dress up as a writer. Or maybe as someone who works in their pajamas.
What is the most common reaction you get when you tell strangers that you are an author?
Surprise. Almost 100% of the time, people say “Oh!” then the surprise changes to that one where you can tell they’re trying to figure out if they should know your name or not but are too embarrassed to ask.
Where online can we keep up to date with your books?
My website is http://www.michelleljohnson.us though I interact far more on my Facebook author page:https://www.facebook.com/MichelleL.Johnson
