Hello! Today with us we have the amazing Madison Granger! *Applause*
Angelina: Introduce yourself please.
Madison: I’m Madison Granger and I write paranormal romance and urban fantasy. I consider myself a free-spirited late bloomer and I live by three beliefs: dreams can come true, never give up, and you’re never too old to try new things.
Angelina: Did someone inspire you to become an author?
Madison: ‘Inspired’ doesn’t really fit my situation. I had two friends who ‘talked me into’ trying my hand at writing. I had no idea if I could do it, but three weeks later I had the rough draft for Phoenix Rising.
Angelina: How long does it take for you to write a story?
Madison: If I’m diligent about sitting down and writing, I can usually finish a novella in two or three weeks.
Angelina: Where do you get your information or ideas for your books?
Madison: My dreams. I wake up with a character or a scene in my head and it takes off from there.
Angelina: What does your family think of your writing?
Madison: They’re very supportive and tease me constantly about having an author in the house.
Angelina: How many books have you written? Which is your favorite?
Madison: Sixteen, and working on the first of a trilogy. My favorite is usually the one I’m currently writing. LOL To narrow it down some, I would have to go with Gambit or A Valkyrie’s Vow.
Angelina: Who’s your favorite character you created?
Madison: Quinn McGrath. Quinn is my idea of the perfect man. He’s loyal, intelligent, has a sense of humor, and is devoted to his mate.
Angelina: Who’s your least favorite character you created?
Madison: Paige Landrum McGrath. There’s nothing really wrong or unlikeable about Paige, I just had a hard time developing her character into someone I could work with.
Angelina: Do you hear from your readers much? What kinds of things do they say?
Madison: I hear from a few, especially a few days after a release. They all rave about my stories, which is a great feeling. I’ve been lucky so far, no one has not liked my books.
Angelina: What do you think makes a good story?
Madison: A good plot, well-developed characters, and a little spice to make things interesting.
Angelina: Tell us about your WIP.
Madison: Zane is the first book of the Bayou Crescent Wolves trilogy. Zane Landry is the middle of three brothers and beta of the pack. He’s hard-working, drop-dead gorgeous, and hoping to find his Fated Mate. Calista Evans shows up at Zane’s bar, The Den, looking for work. She’s also looking for sanctuary, but she’s broken and is keeping a secret that bodes nothing good for shifters.
