Fiction or nonfiction?
What genres do you write?
YA, Adventure, Fantasy and Romance
Are you published?
Yes, you can find my romantic thriller, Survivor here.
Do you do anything in addition to writing?
I blog about other writers at Coffee Bookshelves.
Tell us a little about yourself.
I’m a Nigerian-British and (now) new Canadian. I blog too much, own too many books and plan to be a prolific writer some day.
What are you reading right now?
I’m one of those people who reads 10 books at once. I’m reading Rose Petal Beach by Dorothy Koomson. It’s freaking me out so much I’ve had to take a time-out with Every Day Is For The Thief by Teju Cole.
Which authors influenced you the most?
Jane Austen for her smart humour, strong heroines and Mr Knightly (who doesn’t get enough love), Nora Roberts for introducing fearless, independent women to the romance world, Meg Cabot for keeping it fun and frothy and Joss Whedon for turning the tiny, blonde victim trope on its head with Buffy.
Where can people connect with you?
Barnes and Noble Survivor
Do you have a newsletter?
Is there anything else you’d like us to know?
I LOVE meeting other writers (virtually and IRL). I’m totally open to hosting release day blog tours, posting about new releases or beta-ing for people so don’t be a stranger, get in touch.
Thanks for stopping by! And please hop over to http://melissamaygrove.blogspot.com to meet some of the other authors participating in Follow Fest this week.
