Please give a warm welcome to author Misty Malloy
Tell us a bit about yourself?
My name’s Misty and my favorite things are wine, chocolate, and cheese! I’m a snack-a-holic and can be bribed to do pretty much anything for those delicious Tostitos lime chips. (I’ve officially banned them from the house…they are so good, but so, so evil!) I also frequently sing along to old school hip hop in my car.
Have you always wanted to become an author?
When I was a kid, I used to write tons of stories. My first story was about a snake, Rambo, and Santa Claus…it was pretty weird! I ended up becoming a biologist and teaching science, and I used to joke with my colleagues that I’d be writing romance soon. So…here I am today!
What was your inspiration for your current book/series?
My current series is The Orestaia Series. A lot of my writing inspiration comes from places I’ve traveled. This series takes place in Prague, Sedona, and Vis Island in Croatia…three of my favorite places in the world! I also include parts of the Croatian language in my books, since that’s where my family is from.
What are you working on now?
I just finished the third book in The Orestaia Series, and have some plans for a new fantasy reverse harem trilogy. Dragons and a kick-ass heroine! I’m still plotting everything out, but more info to come soon!
Do you have any quirks while writing?
It’s not really a quirk, but I love writing in the evenings with a glass of wine. (Not editing, though…editing with wine is never good!)
What are your hopes for the future?
I’m hoping to crank out some badass books! And also to meet Jon Snow in person, please.
Do you have any advice for new authors about the publishing world?
Just keep writing! (I’m still trying to figure it all out, too!)
Do you have anything to say to your readers?
Thanks so much for reading my books! I’m so appreciative of all of you!
