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. What is your age?
My name is Mary, but I write under M.K. Moore. I am thirty-three.
Fiona: Where are you from?
Originally from Seffner, Florida, just outside of Tampa. I currently live in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
Fiona: A little about yourself (ie, your education, family life, etc.).
I have been married for nine years. I have a huge extended family. No kids. I have three jobs and I write. My life is full and kind of exciting!
Fiona: Tell us your latest news.
Love & Candy Canes comes out July 29th and I am super excited about that!
Fiona: When and why did you begin writing?
I have always been writing something, Fifty Shades of Grey brought erotica out of hiding so I thought I’d give it a shot.
Fiona: When did you first consider yourself a writer?
When someone outside my family bought a copy of my first book.
Fiona: What inspired you to write your first book?
Fifty Shades of Grey. I love that book and it opened my mind to new possibilities.
Fiona: How did you come up with the title?
My sister, Erin, helped me come up with it.
Fiona: Do you have a specific writing style? Is there anything about your style or genre that you find particularly challenging?
I write novellas mostly. It’s what works for me. I have a short attention span and lots of stories to be told.
Fiona: How much of the book is realistic and are experiences based on someone you know, or events in your own life?
For the most part, there is a bit of my husband in every man I write!
Fiona: To craft your works, do you have to travel? Before or during the process?
I don’t have to, but I do often. I can write anywhere!
Fiona: Who designed the covers?
Most of my covers are designed by the amazing KL Fast.
Fiona: Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp?
For all my books, the message I try to impart is that love is everything!
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?
Ember Flint and Loni Ree are currently on my radar. My favorite writer is C.M. Steele. I love her fun style and the men she writes.
Fiona: Outside of family members, name one entity that supported your commitment to become a published author.
Hmmm. KL Fast. She beta read my second book and we became best friends and our writing partnership was born.
Fiona: Do you see writing as a career?
Yes. A career I love but a career nonetheless.
Fiona: If you had to do it all over again, would you change anything in your latest book?
No, I loved how it turned out!
Fiona: Did you learn anything during the writing of your recent book?
I learned how ice cream is commercially made and stored for sale.
Fiona: If your book was made into a film, who would you like to play the lead?
It really depends on the book, but if I had to choose one to be made into a movie, I’d choose Madame President. I’d like Gavin to be played by Brant Daughtery and Trista be played by Margot Robbie.

Go for it! Write what you love.
