Author Sofia Ann Hoffman #interview

Please give a warm welcome to

Tell us a bit about yourself

My name is Michelle Hoffman and I write under Sofia Ann Hoffman. I am a Texas native now living in Arizona. I have two dogs who are my fur babies, and I adore 80s rock.

°

Have you always wanted to become an author?

Yes, I have always written little things or told people stories. I can remember wanting this s as far back as elementary school.

°

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

I have a few books in the MAR (Magical Alliance Refuge) world. Each book is able to be read as a stand alone, but those who have read the books find some characters cross over into other books. I got the idea for the first book after seeing a request for submissions to Falling for Them, Vol 4. I decided to write about something that wasn’t written about much and chose dolphin-shifters. That story is called Leap at Love. Since then I have released Men for Christmas: Check, Claiming the Owl Shifter, and Pisces on the Hunt. All of the stories are related to MAR somehow.

°

°

What are you working on now?

I’m expanding Leap at Love for a solo release and also editing for other authors.

°

Do you have any quirks while writing?

I’m not able to have the TV on while writing or editing because it’s too distracting. Usually, I put on a favorite radio station or listen to the Alexa. I’m also a total pantser and find it hard to plot out my books. I’m working on that.

°

°

What are your hopes for the future?

I would love to have more books out there for everyone to read. So far, I only have two in paperback. Steven With a V is a contemporary romance published traditionally. Floofballs from Hell is a short story that appeared in a Halloween anthology and features a man forced to raise three hellhound puppies.

°

Do you have any advice for new authors about the publishing world?

Learn how to promote yourself or hire someone to do that for you. That is an area that I am really weak in and I regret it.

°

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

Most of my stories come from dreams. It’s fun to share them with you.
