We are doing an author interview with Colleen S. Myers who plays many roles. Not only is she a veteran, a mother, and a practicing physician, but she is a writer of science fiction and contemporary romances. Colleen’s dreams include surviving her son’s teenage years, exploring every continent on this planet, except Antarctica, cause that’s way too cold, and winning the Nobel peace prize. Dream BIG! Collen's debut book Must Remember! just came out the first part of November. Without further ado, let's meet Colleen!
How are you?
I am doing really well, Looking forward to Christmas. This is my favorite holiday season, mainly for the sheer glow of goodwill that tends to hang in the air (most of the time, unless you broach Black Friday shopping.)
I hear ya, I love Christmas too! And I never go Black Friday shopping! I am all about decorating on Black Friday! What is the current book you are promoting?
My first book was released 11/2/2015, MUST REMEMBER! It is the start of the Solum series se otn the distant planet of guess what, Solum! Its sequel is slated to be released June 6th, 2016 and the final chapter (for Solum at least) is scheduled for December 2016
How very exciting! I love series. Especially when I don't have to wait too long for the next book.
Who is your favorite character in your book and why?
I am all about the villains. I think the complexity of what made them the way that they are is fascinating. Thus my favorite character in my book is Xade. The reader will learn a lot more about his motives as the story progresses.
Juicy villains are the best!
What inspired this book?
I daydream all the time about what ifs and what could be's. This just kind of came to me that way. I love romance that is sexy but also makes you think.
If your book were made into a movie, who would you cast?
Well not really, but he is my current man crush (I loves him so). I haven't really thought about casting per se as of yet, But if you check out my Pinterest page, you can see how I envision the characters.
Charlie is super yummy, but I love your character visuals on your Pinterest page. What a great idea!
What is your next project?
I am currently writing the third book in this series and finishing up a contemporary romance novel that is Earth-based and pulls on my experiences in the military with a crippled hero.
Sounds great! I am always working on multiple projects too. Gotta keep that creative juice flowing.
Who is your favorite author?
Oh, that is like asking me to only eat one potato chip! I love so many authors. I think that is why writing is so interesting. Yes, we all have genre's we gravitate towards, but some days I want to read a comedy, others a thriller. It all depends on my moods. My tastes do tend to run toward fantasy authors though, Ilona Andrews, Nalini Singh, Jim Butcher, John Grisham, Thea Harrison. So many good ones out there!
I love meeting author's who are as eclectic in their reading tastes as I am! It was such a joy to have you join our little piece of the blogosphere.
Here is the teaser for Must Remember!
old Elizabeth ‘Beta’ Camden is a survivor.
When the E’mani—those pale alien freaks—destroy Earth with a plague of madness and scoop up the remains, Beta is one of the ‘lucky’ ones. For years, she endures their tortures, experiments and games. Then one day, she manages to escape their ship with her life, and no memory of her time with them.
Stranded on their world, Beta wanders the mountains, looking for a way home. She stumbles onto the Fost—the E’mani’s ancient enemy. Their war with the E’mani is old and rooted in magic that the Fost once had and the E’mani crave. Magic Beta soon discovers she’s developing along with strange tattoos and disturbing glimpses of her past. The Fost take her in and train her in their ways. As she spends more time with them, she falls in love with their culture and with Marin—he of the hot hands and slit eyes.
But the E’mani took her for a reason and they want her back—dead or alive. If Beta doesn’t remember that reason soon, they’re all going to die.
