Hi to all the Book Faery Readers! So, I'm here to charm and hang out for a while, huh? Well, let me share a little bit about me and my writing. Tori has been kind enough to put together an interview for me, so let's get rollin'!
What is your favorite genre to read?
Why did you choose to pursue this career path?
When did you decide that you wanted to be a published author?
What has the journey been like?
Oh, boy. A lot of ups and downs. A lot of success, and an equal if not larger number of failures and frustrations. Did I mention a lot of ups and downs? But each bump taught me something, gave me the strength to stand up for my work later down the road, or taught me what I needed to avoid like the plague *cofhistoricalcof*
What is the writing process like for you?
Do you have any pre/post writing rituals?
If you could marry any fictional hero, who would it be and why?
Coffee or tea?
Coffee. Though I drink tea during the winter when I want something hot and not loaded.
Chocolate or vanilla?
Chocolate. It is its own food group, isn't it?
Night owl, or early riser?
Winter or summer?
Actually, I'm a fall girl. I love the change in the seasons, the colors, and the cooler temps without quite needing to bundle up like a hill-billy sales rack to go get the mail. I do love snow, but there's very little that can ruin a brisk north breeze with sunshine on you.
Diana Castilleja has been writing since 2004 with her first work published in 2006. She's since had over twenty combined titles published under her mainstream name and her psuedonym of Diana DeRicci. Her writing runs across the board in the romance genre and she's always on the lookout for anothe challenge--usually brought to her at right at the same time she's trying to fall asleep. It's a collision of Muse and Sandman and rarely does she get out of it easily.
Her latest works include Wolf Brother's Legacy: Resurrection (Castilleja) and Under One Roof (DeRicci). For more information, sample chapters and other bits about her work, please feel free to check out her websites. She can be reached through her websites and she loves to hear from readers.
