AUTHOR LOWDOWN with Evie Harper

You’re being abducted by hunky aliens and they’ve never watched a DVD. What five movies do you take to watch with them?
Romeo and Juliet, The Notebook, Twilight series. Hunger Games series. That’s more than five I know, but I NEED them all! Oh and they would have to wait until the rest of the Hunger Games came out on DVD! I’d have to say, come back in three years! 

Do you have a favourite author? Who is it/are they?
Yes, Kristen Ashley. The Queen of Alphas.

How did you start your writing career?
I didn’t really start it, it started me. I started writing after a scene that wouldn’t leave me. It replayed over and over again until I put pen to paper and then the scene’s kept coming. After a while I had a whole story.

Which character was the hardest to write and why?
My Hero, Jake. I wanted him to be so different to how he turned out. I tried to force him into something that he isn’t. When I stopped forcing and starting listening, writing him was effortless.

If you write under an alias/Nome de plume, how do you deal with being addressed by that name?
I do. And at first it was weird lol! But now it’s as if I have morphed into this person and I think if someone called Evie on the street, I would turn around.

How would you classify the genre you write? Why did you choose that genre?
I would classify my first novel as a dark, contemporary romance. I didn’t really choose it, the scenes and situations in my story choose the genre. Dark isn’t a genre I thought I would ever write.

If you weren’t an author, what would you have ended up doing?
Blogging and trying to make money off it until I die so I could just read every day. I dream big! J

Do you have any rituals/habits when you write?
Nothing yet.
What is on your current and upcoming release schedule?
The second book in the YOU LOVED ME series is You Loved Me At My Weakest and is due out late November 2014.

Where are your books available?
Amazon, Kobo, B&N, iBooks.
