My special guest today is romantic suspense author Karla Brandenburg. We’re chatting about her newest novel, The Mirror.
Welcome, Karla. Please share a little bit about your current release.
What inspired you to write this book?
“Look, I don’t want to tell you what to do,” he started.
What exciting story are you working on next?
I’m working on the fourth in the Epitaph series, Kathleen’s book. While I’d originally given her a hero and a conflict in Book 1, I was surprised that he didn’t want to play along in Book 4. She has a new hero. I’m excited to use New Orleans as the haunted backdrop for a part of the story.
When did you first consider yourself a writer?
Do you write full-time? If so, what’s your work day like? If not, what do you do other than write and how do you find time to write? I have a regular, full-time job. Writing is NOT lucrative as a career. I write every chance I get, and because my day job is seasonal, I can work part time during off times and spend that time writing. During busy season, my writing time decreases drastically, and in some years, I have to stop writing altogether for a month or two. On a good day, I can write for six hours. On a day where the day job conflicts, I might not have time to write more than an hour.
What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?
As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
