Hey there everyone.
It’s time to kick this week into overdrive and enjoy another outstanding Author Interview with a very exciting guest.
May I introduce you all to Scarlett Holloway, as she talks about her debut novel release and we get to find out a lot more about her writing past.
Buckle up for an adventurous ride to stimulate the mind and heart! As always, thanks for reading, enjoy yourselves folks 🙂
Hi there Scarlett, thank you for joining us here today to discuss your latest novel release, along with your own passions, influences and writing experiences.
Let’s start first with your most recent novel release itself “Policy of Truth” which is due out later in February, a realistic romantic thriller about life in the fast lane of an all-female Motorcycle Club. Please tell us more about the plot/themes of your book, along with how you have included much of your own real life experiences of being in a Motorcycle Club in the past and woven it into your exhilarating tale.
It’s not every day that someone can say they ran their own club. It’s not that easy, by any means. I struggled along the way and had many, MANY disappointments. One thing I can say though, is the feeling of empowerment was amazing. Having women that backed you up 100%, that lifted you when you were down? The best feeling in the world. I have tried to include that in this series, as well as each character is inspired by someone I know. This is my way of immortalizing them and saying thank you.
If you could invite any one of your characters to dinner, which one would it be and what would you cook for them?
That’s honestly a difficult question. I would have to throw a club wide party instead and have a buffet. I would bring my infamous lasagna though. It is in a huge pan, weighs in at 25lbs. No, really. I’ve weighed it lol
If your novel was to be made into a film (or even a TV series), who would you cast in the lead roles?
I would want Lace to be cast by an unknown. Steel is very much Jason Statham. Durty would be someone like Mila Kunis and Sting is Brett Michaels or Brock Ohurn.
What would you choose as your own personal mascot or spirit animal when it comes to you and your style of writing?
A unicorn. My style is unique and not many are used to it. I write real and in your face, I don’t write in a floral and concise style, and most everyone finds it refreshing.
What do you think most characterizes or defines your writing? Do you have any writing quirks or themes that constantly crop up in your stories?
Music is very big in my stories, and my twists with cliff hangers are usually what gets the most attention.
What do you find the most difficult thing about writing? And what do you find the easiest?
Sex scenes, I HATE THEM! I try to avoid them at all costs, but I am told I write them amazingly.
Who are some of the authors, musicians, poets and/or historical figures that inspire you?
Stephen King, Clive Barker, Chester Bennington, Maynard James Keenan, Elizabeth Taylor. They have all inspired me in some small way.
Do you listen to music when you are writing and if so then what type of music do you listen to?
I always have music going when I write, and it is usually ANY & ALL genres. The Death’s Angels MC series is written to music and its titles are all songs, along with the chapters being the actual playlist to the novels.
What sort of research do you do to write your books?
Let’s just say my history browser needs to be deleted if anything were to happen to me….
Why do you write? What inspired you to become a writer?
I write to entertain people, to let them escape and have some fun.
What keeps you motivated during creative slumps? How do you deal with Writers Block?
I don’t deal. I drop everything and binge watch on my Netflix or Hulu. When I feel it again, I write.
You have access to a time machine. What advice would you give to your younger self?
Write earlier, much much earlier.
How do you spend your free time when you are not writing?
Watching movies, racing my car, plotting new stories, cooking
What are you views on audiobooks and would you consider having your novels made into audiobooks? If so then who would you get to narrate them?
I would love to be on Audible. Morgan Freeman, duh … or Samuel L. Jackson.
Tell us more about your upcoming projects. Are you working on anything specific or have plans in the pipeline?
I have a release in March, which is a surprise Urban Fantasy, then in May, I have book one in a Family Saga, in October, book two in the DAMC series releases.
Finally, are there any nuggets of wisdom that you can impart to other aspiring writers?
Never give up. Always write for you, not for the fame or money.
And that’s a wrap! Thank you for joining us Scarlett, we look forward to keeping ourselves in suspense no longer and look forward to checking out your books as fast as we can 🙂
Growing up on the Central Coast, Scarlett Holloway always dreamed of seeing her name on the cover of a book and on the New York Times Best Seller List. What better way than to bring part of her past onto the pages of a novel, as well as writing about issues that women face on a daily basis?
When she is not in her bunny hole writing, she is a massage therapist, trying to help people through therapeutic healing. Scarlett is hopelessly devoted to her husband, who she lovingly calls her plot bunny, and is active in her teenage son’s life.
