#AuthorInterview Emerald Barnes #YA Christian Fiction Author
I’m the author of two published books at the moment, both in the YA genre and both suspense novels. I am the Auntie to two beautiful nieces and two beautiful nephews who are my world. I live in Mississippi and definitely have the accident to prove it. I blog, write, and pretend to know what I’m doing in the industry business, but I’ve learned that there is always something new to learn along the way.
I'm sure you know more than you think. What genres do you like to write in? Do you pay attention to genre rules or bend them?
I genre hop some. I write Christian fiction in the suspense genres, but I’m currently working on a YA trilogy that is paranormal/fantasy. I also have some books in mind that are dystopian and other paranormal elements. So, I like to write all types except romance and woman’s lit. Not that I have anything against those, they just aren’t in my writing style.
I don’t really pay attention to most rules. I say if the story needs to go in one direction, go with the flow of the story and not try to buy into the “rules.” I’m a rebel at heart. ;)
Same here. Guess that's why we're not under King George. Who is your favorite character?
Christian from Read Me Dead. He’s broody and totally hot. He would do anything to protect the people that he cares about, but he doesn’t let anyone run over him or take advantage of him. He stole my heart when I wrote him. But of course, he’s kind of got a tie with Landon from the same book. Landon is also hot, but he’s so wonderfully sweet that you can’t help but fall for him!
Who was your most difficult character?
Any kissing scenes?
Oh yes. There were two really hot kissing scene in Read Me Dead between Alex and her interest at the time. I do keep things clean, but I loved these scenes.
Have you ever fallen in love with one of your characters? Was your husband/wife jealous?
Yes! But, I’m lucky enough to not be married, so I don’t have to deal with the jealousy!
What keeps you up at night?
TV. I LOVE watching television shows! I really cannot get enough of them! So, after working and reading some, I turn on my shows and watch them until the late hours of the night.
Thanks for hosting me, Rachelle! It’s been fun!
