Do you love fantasy stories that have strong female characters and steamy hot guys? Debbie Peterson writes stories just like that! She is the author of Inkspell's April release: The Shadow of the Witte Wieven-- the story of DEA Aliyana Montijo and former seventeenth century captain of the Dutch West Indies Company, Wolfaert Dircksen Van Ness, now from a parallel dimension.
Today we sit down with Debbie and find out about her writing and upcoming books.
When did you first start writing? What made you want to be a writer?
I started out by writing poetry when I was very young (No you can’t see
them, so don’t ask). Writing novels came much later, although I made up stories in my head as far back as I can remember. Then one day, with the encouragement of my husband, I started writing those stories down and it just felt really good. So, I
What inspired you to write your novel, Shadow of the Witte Wieven? I saw a beautiful painting of a raging storm over the sea…
Which of the characters in your current release is your favorite? Why? I think I’d have to go with Wolf, because he has seen and experienced so much of what life has to offer. He’s not afraid to go after what he wants.
If you could only write in one genre for the rest of your career, what genre would you choose? Why? I think I’d stay with my Paranormal/fantasy romance because the possibilities are endless and I can allow my imagination to go wherever it wants to go!
Morning person or grumpy bear? Morning person… (I’m very rarely a grumpy bear.)
What group were you a part of in High School? Jocks? Nerds? Metal heads? I’m pretty sure I belonged to the “wall flower” club. I was then, and still am, fairly shy.
Tell us one thing that would surprise us to know about you? Probably the fact that I have
over one thousand books on my personal library shelves, and yes, I have one room in my house dedicated to our books.
What is next for you? Right now, my paranormal romance, “Spirit of the Revolution,” is undergoing edits. Once the book is in final galley, I’ll get a release date. I also have one other book in submissions (a fantasy romance), with another, (a tale of a ghostly knight) waiting in line behind “Revolution.”
Coke or Pepsi? Pepsi.
If I were to look in your closet right now, would I find frills and lace or denim and tees? You would find denim and tees.
