“I
write because if I don’t…my head will explode, and ruin the
drapes.” ♥
 

 

Brooke
Moss

writes complex, character-driven stories about kismet, reunited
lovers, first love, and the kind of romance that we should all have
the chance at finding. She prefers her stories laced with some humor
just for fun, and enough drama to keep her readers flipping the
pages, and begging for more!

 

 

When
Brooke isn’t spinning tales, she spends her time drawing/cartooning,
reading, watching movies then comparing them to books, and, of
course, wrangling five kids, mugging on her hubby she lovingly refers
to as her “nerd”, and attempting to conquer the Mount
Everest of laundry that is the bane of her existence.

Love
I
am a Michigan native, who up until recently lived in the Metro
Detroit area, where crime and corruption always seem to be at the top
of everyone’s news. So there’s always the chance to find something
that can trigger a story idea and enough interesting characters to
jump start your imagination.

 

 

While
I have worked in many industries and career paths over the years, one
of my passions has always been writing. I was even able to parlay
that passion for a while, working as a freelance reporter for a
couple of newspapers in the Detroit area. Writing features and hard
news helped me hone my talents. But while newspaper work was
interesting and paid a few bills, it was a far cry from the fiction
writing that I enjoy the most.

 

 

I’ve
always been drawn to mysteries and thrillers, the kind of stories
that have a fast pace, that keep you moving and keep you guessing as
to what’s going to take place next. Mix those in with some elements
of crime, perhaps a glimpse of the seedier side and you’ve got me. So
it’s always been one of my goals to write stories like
that.

Melissa
Kay Clarke

was born in Tupelo, Mississippi and raised in Houlka, a small rural
town forty-five minutes southwest down the famous Natchez Trace. She
found a love of reading very early and quickly devoured everything
she could. Told repeatedly that she had a wonderful imagination, she
turned to scribbling her musings and wrote her first novel while in
college. It was never published and has since vanished. The death of
a close friend who aspired to become an author reawakened her own
desire resulting in penning her first book, Shattered Dreams,
published in 2013.
 

 

Melissa
now resides in Meridian, Mississippi with her supportive family –
husband, Robert and daughter Rebecca, two cats, and two dogs. When
she isn’t writing, she spends way too much time with her online
friends and feeding her ravenous appetite for the written word.

Rita Chapman author of Lost in Egypt a Interview

Thursday, February 13th, 2014

Rita, tell us where you were born and where do you live now.

I was born in North London and moved to Australia in my early twenties.  I live on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland – a beautiful area.

Sound beautiful. What makes you passionate about writing?

What makes anyone passionate about anything?  I think it’s in your blood.
You are right… How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?

It took nearly a year – I would write when it was raining and leave it for weeks at a time.
Who or What inspired you to write this book?

Taking to heart the advice you should write about things you know, (more…)
