A big welcome to my fellow Noble Romance author Lisa Collicutt. She likes to write dark and twisted tales of magic and romance. She has a passion for Young Adult and New Adult Paranormal. When she’s not conjuring tales about witches, demons, and other magical beings, she can be found leathered and bound to the back of her husband’s Harley, touring her homeland of Nova Scotia, Canada.
Enter Lisa’s imagination where light ends and fantasy begins. But heed these warnings . . . it’s dark, it’s magical, you may experience tingles.
The Gathering Darkness see soul mates re-uniting – do you believe in soul mates, and what’s your take on modern love?
Sure, I believe in soul-mates. I’m married to mine. Although sometimes I think we’re complete opposites. I also believe destiny brought us together. So, soul-mates and destiny – absolutely.
Modern love could use a touch of chivalry for sure. That’s where being a writer comes in handy. I can easily add all the chivalry I want – or not – into my romance novels. Here’s something I’ve said before: there’s nothing like first glances, touches, and kisses. These firsts are one of my favourite aspect to write about. It puts me back in the day
What book (out at the moment) did you wish you’d written, and why?
Great question. I’ve read so many and actually said “I wish I’d written that.” But the latest one that comes to mind is; The Red Brick Road. Now, I didn’t read the story, but I so wish I’d thought of that title first. The Wizard of Oz has deep meaning to me. And I’ve always wondered where the red brick road lead, but never thought about writing about it until I saw that title somewhere. So I’m quite bummed that I didn’t think of it first.
What’s your fav mythical creature and why?
Dragons are by far my favourite mythical creature. They can be good or bad. They come in rainbows of colors. Can be very wise or downright nasty. And they are magical. There’s so much you can do with a dragon.
If you were to cast The Gathering Darkness, which actors would you chose and why?
Well, I always saw Matt Lanter as Marcus. And Victoria Justice would make a perfect Brooke. But you know what? I’m not at all apposed to making stars from new talent, as long as I get to pick them. I haven’t really thought about the rest of the cast.
Your book The Devil’s Flower has a number of genres delicately wrapped between its petals – what’s you fav genre to write in?
That’s hard. I’d like to say paranormal romance and call it one genre, ha-ha. I need both, but I guess the one I couldn’t write without would be romance.
What are you working on at the moment?
Right now, I’m working on the beginning of the second book in the Serendipitous Curse of Solomon Brandt series (Book one out July 25/13).
