Hello and welcome to my blog, Author Interviews. My name is Fiona Mcvie.
Let’s get you introduced to everyone, shall we? Tell us your name.
Hi! Thanks for featuring me on your blog today. I write history and fiction as Hunter S. Jones.
Fiona: Where are you from?
Currently, I live in Atlanta, GA
Fiona: Tell us your latest news.
I’m delighted to let you know that my latest release, Sexuality & Its Impact On History: The British Stripped Bare is available in the U.K. It’s a collection of historical essays, written by women writers. We look at love, romance and sexuality in the Anglo-Saxon, Medieval, Tudor, Stuart and Victorian Eras.
Fiona: Do you have a specific writing style? Is there anything about your style or genre that you find particularly challenging?
No, not at all. I believe that writing is an art form and as such there are no real rules.
Fiona: How much of the book is realistic and are experiences based on someone you know, or events in your own life?
Any fiction is from my imagination. Any resemblance to persons living or dead is to protect the guilty.
Fiona: To craft your works, do you have to travel? Before or during the process?
Great question! I love to visit historical sites before writing to get a feeling of how life was in the past.
Fiona: Who designed the covers?
The publishers, Pen & Sword Books, commissioned the cover for my latest. When I publish independently, I use Robin Johnson at www.gobookcoverdesign.com. She has an elegance and style that I love.
Fiona: Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp?
For Sexuality & Its Impact On History, I want readers to understand that human nature is the same as it was in the past. Most importantly, that women have always found a way to survive and thrive even though the rules of society haven’t been in our favour.
Fiona: Do you see writing as a career?
Yes. I’m a full time writer.
Fiona: If you had to do it all over again, would you change anything in your latest book?
No, not really.
Fiona: Did you learn anything during the writing of your recent book?
Yes, thanks for asking. I wrote about the Victorian Era. There is a great deal of information in Georgia and Tennessee due to the rise of railroads and the influence of the Civil War on the American South. I love writing about the era, but would love to write something based in Tudor England again.
Fiona: If your book was made into a film, who would you like to play the lead?
Sexuality & Its Impact On History would actually make a fantastic TV series.
Fiona: Anything specific you want to tell your readers?
Thank you so much for all the support! I adore my followers.
Fiona: Do you have any hobbies?
Travel and fashion are my things. Well, music. I love rock & roll.
Fiona: Imagine a future where you no longer write. What would you do?
I have a farm, so I guess I would become a full-time farmer.
Fiona: Do you have a blog or website readers can visit for updates, events and special offers?
Sure! Thanks for asking and thanks so much for featuring me today!
