PG13 Dark Author Interview for October…Mercedes M. Yardley

Wednesday, October 16th, 2013

Mercedes welcome to my blog. Tell us where you were born?

MMY: I was born in American Fork, Utah. I grew up in Emery County, which is a rural little town in the middle of the desert. I’m currently living in Vegas, which is certainly a change.  I miss small town life.

That is for sure, Who or What inspired you to write this book?

MMY: This book came about after years of writing and publishing in magazines and anthologies. I was working on “The Novel” but I truly love short stories. I kept writing them on the side while working on longer pieces. I had thought about putting a collection together, but it was sort of a pie-in-the-sky dream. I didn’t take it seriously until the editor at Shock Totem mentioned it to me, that he’d be interested in putting it out. Sometimes it takes another person to wake you up to what you want.

Very impressive. Tell us more… (more…)
