Hey everyone! Today we are chatting with Lisa Fox, author of Sculpting a Demon, a sultry paranormal romance. Lisa is giving away a copy of her book to one lucky commenter, so be sure to leave a comment with your email address.
How did you come up with the storyline to Sculpting a Demon?
I saw an open call for submissions for a themed series from Ellora’s Cave called Art of Love. The stories had to feature the visual arts, sculpting, painting and the like. So, I got to thinking and Sculpting a Demon was born.
You’re characters have unique names. How did you come up with them?
Thanks! Actually, I was struggling with the names at first and I asked my very good friend to help. She came up with the name Arien. I don’t know how she did it, but when she suggested it, I knew it was the one.
Your protagonist likes to sculpt. Do you share that same passion?
LOL. No, not at all. My sculpting career began and ended with the lumpy, awkward, unusable ashtray I made in the second grade.
What interested you most about writing?
Telling a story. Being able to share my imagination with other people. And, hopefully, entertaining them a bit.
How long have you been writing?
I don’t remember a time when I have not been writing. Forever. For as long as I’ve able to form a sentence.
How do you balance everyday life with writing?
I have no real life so it isn’t that hard. I work and work and work whether it is at the day job dungeon or at my home computer.
What do you like most about writing in the paranormal / urban fantasy romance genre?
I’m really just a little goth girl at heart so I love, love, LOVE writing and thinking about vampires and angels and demons and werewolves and all those other very sexy paranormal creatures.
Tell us a random fact about yourself.
The entire reason I moved to San Francisco was because I totally, utterly love the Beats and I wanted to walk in their footsteps. It was just too bad that I was thirty years too late!
Do you have any projects you are currently working on?
Millions! Seriously. I’ve got a vampire short I’ve been meaning to work on and a pirate story I pick and put down and pick up…you know how it goes. There is also a longer, darker vampire novel that has been bouncing around in my head for some time. If only there were more hours in the day! I could maybe finish them all.
