please tell us about your current projects?
Thank you for having me here today. I am currently working on several projects. First is the release of Book 2, Sue’s Rapture, in the Sue’s Journey Trilogy. Book 1, Sue’s Seduction, lays out the premise of the fountain of youth in a pill. Because I wanted readers to understand Sue’s JOURNEY, I decided this blog tour would begin with the first book while releasing the second.
Next is a book of love trivia and fun facts that I have been posting on my Facebook page for the past year or so. I am also working on my first romance thriller called Basking in the Light, which is due for release in March 2015. In my “spare” time I am writing the third book in the Sue’s Journey Trilogy called Sue’s Legacy.
When was the moment that you knew you had to be a writer?
I don’t think there was an exact moment for me; it was more of a feeling that I’ve had since early childhood that I would end up writing one day. Writing romance novels came as a big surprise to me as I always assumed I would write children’s books.
Who gave you the one piece of writing advice that sticks with you today?
My high school English teacher, Liz Lanier, sat me down one day and explained thoroughly how to write an exceptional essay. Her advice stuck in my mind and my papers improved tremendously.
Describe the “perfect” hero. What about the “perfect” hero for you?
The perfect hero to me is someone who has been through some challenging times in his life, but has learned from his difficulties and as a result continues to evolve as an individual. He has a good heart and strives to do the right thing. He has integrity. My reoccurring character, Arnie Darrow, is a perfect example of someone who has had some tough blows in life, but continues to grow and learn.
What are some of your favorite pastimes? Do you have any hobbies or collections?
I’m not much of a collector. Most of my free time is spent photographing and hiking in the spectacular Sierra Mountains where I live in Lake Tahoe, Nevada. I have always been fascinated by the wine industry and have completed level 1 sommelier certification and plan to continue on to level 2.
What is your biggest adventure to date?
Starting a writing career in mid-life without having any previous experience or knowledge about the writing industry. It has been quite an education and an adventure!
If your fairy godmother waved her wand and whisked you away to the location of your choice, which place would you choose, and why?
I’ve been daydreaming about spending a year on a tropical island. I did quite a bit of research and Belize makes a lot of sense to me; it’s beautiful, affordable (in certain areas), English speaking and not too far away.
When it comes to food, are you the adventurous type who will try anything once, or do you prefer to stick to tried and true food and recipes?
Trying new things is part of the fun of life. Trying at least one new thing each day, whether it be food or an experience, is one of my favorite goals.
How do you describe yourself? How would your family and friends describe you?
I would describe myself as positive, grounded, loyal and determined. My family and friends describe me as fun, compassionate, dependable, faithful, easy going and tenacious.
What is your favorite comfort food?
Cheese and fruit; it’s a family thing.
What is your favorite season? What do you love about it?
Fall is by far my favorite time of the year. I’m exhilarated by the crisp air, gentle breezes and gorgeous fall colors. It’s perfect weather for hiking.
What project are you working on next?
Two unrelated science fiction novels, a fairy tale and the next book in the Arnie Darrow romantic suspense series called Grace’s Deception.
Any place we can find you in person or on the net this month or next?
My virtual book tour will continue though the end of October and the schedule can be found on my website www.saylorstorm.com, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram!
About Saylor Storm
Reality becomes fantasy, or is it that imagination turns into real life experience? Saylor Storm is fascinated by how frequently the line between reality and fantasy crosses in her writing practice. She feels that writing romance novels is an astonishing way to play with something from real life and turning into something fun, playful and perhaps a bit twisted.
Her characters all experience real life joy and pain, reinvention, survival and victory. They share the process of evolution and expansion. The places in her stories take place where she has lived or visited, from the beaches of Malibu to the islands in Fiji and destinations in between, including the monastery in her novel, “Dr. Selfish.”
Saylor’s stories reflect her many personal interests including fitness, wine, healthy foods. She’s intrigued by the spiritual world and that of metaphysics. Love and passion are at the root of her tales, after all isn’t that what life is all about? She hopes the reader is as entertained reading her books as she is writing them. Viva la passion!
Saylor enjoys being an active member of the Romance Writers of America. She currently lives in Lake Tahoe and one of her many passions is hiking the nationally known Tahoe Rim Trail. Readers can enjoy fabulous photos of her treks posted on her Facebook page, Saylor Storm.
