Interview with Angela Brown

Angela B 2012 Ferrell PhotographyTell us about your publishing journey…
As a hybrid author – self-published and published through the query process – mines is a journey filled with its fair share of ups and downs. The excitement of getting to share my stories is a high that outweighs many of the down times. I started with self-publishing an erotica novel under my pen name, Rayven Godchild. Along with a great online and IRL bud, Gwen Gardner, I hopped over into self-publishing young adult novels. Beacon started as another project I considered self-publishing, but I decided to put it through the query process and was thrilled to have it picked up by Evernight Teen.
What do you love about being an author?
Story-telling. I get that being an author means writing well, but there’s a certain joy I feel in getting to let my imagination run wild in building a story that makes being an author so wonderful.
If you could have dinner with any literary character, who would it be and what would you eat?
That’s a difficult choice, but I would go with Hermione from Harry Potter and we’d eat whatever delectable tasties her wand conjured.
If your book was to be made into a movie, who would you cast as the leads?
Macie would be Zendaya (from Disney’s KC Undercover)
Thane would be Colton Haynes (from Arrow)
Vampires – do you prefer them as sexy leads or blood hungry monsters?
I like them like Eric from True Blood, blood hungry yet sexy about it at the same time lol!
If you had a time machine, which era would you go back to and why?beacon (1)
I’m fine with the era I’m in, though I wouldn’t mind going back to be an apprentice to Madame CJ Walker.
What life advice do you wish you’d been given sooner?
Don’t sweat the small stuff.
If you were a supernatural creature, what would you be and why?
Probably a vampire, one with a suffering heart wishing I didn’t have to hurt humans for my survival, but an understanding that the occasional dinner – minus the kill or turning – would be good for my soullessness.
Where do you write best? 
Seated in my bed :-)
If you didn’t write in your genre, which other would you prefer and why?
I actually would love to try an exciting mystery at some point.
Where can fans find you online?
