#authorinterview with @Dawn_Roberto

I am pleased to introduce ­­DM Roberto who is joining us today on Maya’s Musings.

Q: Tell us something about yourself.
A: Hi there *waves* Thanks for having me. I love to write and read. I have been writing for several years and enjoy creating fun stories where people find love and happiness.

Q. How did you get into writing?
A: Oh man by a fluke really. I was reading a book—not sure what it was—where the main characters were just awful. I was ranting about it to a friend who challenged me to write something I would want to read and voila…after that point I never looked back.

Q. How do you develop your plots and characters?
A: I write by the seat of my pants. I can’t plot worth a damn since my characters seem to take the plot points and go wild and crazy over them. My muse loves to give me ideas when I am at work when I have no writing instruments around. *grumbles about a pushy muse* 😊

Q: What inspires you to write?
A: Really anything. I can take a song I hear and weave a story around it or have a character come out of the blue yelling for their own story.

Q: Who is your all-time favorite character (from your books) and why?
A: *laughs* I have to choose one??!! If you insist, it should be Rodrick Dracon from my paranormal series, Devon Falls. His book, Moon Kissed Magic (DF 4), made me laugh so hard at times. He is a playboy wolf shifter who finds his chosen mate is the one woman who drives him crazy. Sparks fly and boy was it fun to write his and Jaxon’s story. Jax is independent and snarky. I love her to bits. Pairing her with Rod was so much fun and we revisit them in book 5 of the series I just submitted to my publisher.

Q: Do you prefer coffee or tea?
A: Both. Coffee in the morning and tea at night if I am not working.

Q: What’s better than chocolate?
A: Oh egads nothing as far as I am concerned…well except that new book that you get, sex, first cup of coffee in the morning, 😊

Q: If you believed in this sort of thing and could channel an artist from the beyond, who would it be and why?
A: an artist huh? Well I can’t draw or anything worth the damn so anyone would be better than my little stick figures I can draw. *laughs*

Q: What are your plans for the future? Where do you see yourself in five years?
A: Oh man, I hope healthy, happy and still writing if I am able. Five years from now is so long away and so much can change in that time.

Q: Any advice for those aspiring novelists out there?
A: Write what you love, not to trends. If you like vampires, write it. I got this advice once from another author and it really helped me not give into following the trends out there of stories I may not enjoy or read.

Thanks for your time, Dawn, it's been great chatting with you.

Thank you so much for having me. I had a blast.

Moon Kissed Magic
