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.
Fiona: Where are you from?
I’m originally from St. Louis, Missouri. But I have lived in Los Angeles, Houston, and Atlanta.
Fiona: A little about your self (ie, your education, family life, etc.).
I went to Northeast Missouri State University where I got my degree in Spanish. I’ve been married 23 years, and I have two grown kids in college. My husband travels for work a lot, so most of the time I have the house to myself to write and write and write some more!
Fiona: Tell us your latest news.
I’m finishing up my Project DEEP series, a series that has been a blast to write. A little science fiction. A little military. A little government. A lot of sex. J
Fiona: When and why did you begin writing?
I was lured into this world by my sister, Annmarie McKenna, who is also an author. After spending several years editing, I decided to switch sides. And the rest is history. My first book was published in 2011.
Fiona: When did you first consider yourself a writer?
Fiona: What inspired you to write your first book?
My sister. Annmarie McKenna.
Fiona: How did you come up with the title?
I usually don’t know titles when I start writing. But they evolve as I go along.
Fiona: Do you have a specific writing style? Is there anything about your style or genre that you find particularly challenging?
I’m a pantser, so I let my characters lead the way. Some days I get stuck, but usually I can talk out the problem, back up a page, and redirect!
Fiona: How much of the book is realistic and are experiences based on someone you know, or events in your own life?
My books are all contemporary, but none of the experiences are based on anyone I know or my own life.
Fiona: To craft your works, do you have to travel? Before or during the process?
Sometimes I travel, but not often.
Fiona: Who designed the covers?
I have an amazing cover artist—Scott Carpenter.
Fiona: Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp?
Not usually. Mostly I just want readers to escape the real world for a while.
Fiona: Are there any new authors that have grasped your interest? Who is your favorite writer, and what is it about their work that really strikes you?
Huge Kristen Ashley fan. She had a totally different style I could never begin to emulate.
Fiona: Outside of family members, name one entity that supported your commitment to become a published author.
Oh, gosh. So many editors and publishers along the way. I owe a lot to my editor, Christa Desir. I also owe a lot to one of my publishers, Georgia Woods.
Fiona: Do you see writing as a career?
It’s a career!
Fiona: If you had to do it all over again, would you change anything in your latest book?
Nope. No sense looking back!
Fiona: Did you learn anything during the writing of your recent book?
I learn something every day. It’s half the fun!
Fiona: If your book was made into a film, who would you like to play the lead?
Fiona: Any advice for other writers?
Enjoy the process! It’s so rewarding.
Fiona: Anything specific you want to tell your readers?
I’d love to thank every reader who has taken a chance on me and sent so many kind words!
Fiona: What book are you reading now?
Hot SEAL, Cold Beer by Cynthia D’Alba. It’s one of the books in the Paradise SEALs series I wrote in.
Fiona: Do you remember the first book you read?
Gosh no. But my favorite early childhood book was Green Eggs and Ham.
Fiona: What makes you laugh/cry?
Being with friends makes me very happy. Seeing people mistreated brings me to tears.
Fiona: Is there one person, past or present, you would love to meet? Why?
Oprah Winfrey. 😀
Fiona: Do you have any hobbies?
I used to scrapbook all the time! But now I never have time because writing is both a hobby and a career!
Fiona: What TV shows/films do you enjoy watching?
Big Bang Theory. Young Sheldon. Walking Dead.
Fiona: Favorite foods, colors, music?
Pizza, Mexican, beer, wine, chocolate. Purple!
Fiona: Imagine a future where you no longer write. What would you do?
Read. All day every day. Until I died!
Fiona: You only have 24 hours to live how would you spend that time?
Hugging my family
Fiona: What do you want written on your head stone?
I can’t even begin to imagine…
Fiona: Do you have a blog or website readers can visit for updates, events and special offers?
