Conversations With Colleen: Meet Author, Marie Lavender

The Faery Whisperer

Conversations with ColleenThe December Edition

Hello everyone! This week I’m happy to bring you an author I’ve seen throughout social media but didn’t know. I love meeting new people so, when I asked her to pick three or four questions from my huge list HERE, she jumped right in! We all aspire to be successful authors and the best way to learn some of the tricks of the trade is to ask questions.

First, please welcome my guest, Marie Lavender.

Marie Lavender Logo

Marie Lavender lives in the Midwest with her family and three cats. She has been writing for a little over twenty-five years. She has more works in progress than she can count on two hands. Since 2010, Marie has published 24 books in the genres of historical romance, contemporary romance, romantic suspense, paranormal romance, dramatic fiction, fantasy, science fiction, mystery/thriller, literary fiction and poetry. She has also contributed to several anthologies.

Her current published…

Author Spotlight: Marie Lavender, Directions of the Heart

A great interview on the Bound to Be Me blog! A little background about me, as well as why I wrote my current book, DIRECTIONS OF THE HEART!

Bound to Be Me

2


Bestselling multi-genre author of UPON YOUR RETURN, Marie Lavender has published over twenty books and is a Top Ten Author on AuthorsDB.com. Two of her books (Second Chance Heart &Little Magick) placed in the Top Ten on the 2015 P&E Readers’ Poll.

This week I had the privilege to talk with Marie Lavender about her upcoming book, Directions of the Heart, and ask her a few questions regarding her book and what it’s like being a writer. I especially loved what Lavender said when I asked her about her books message. 

When did you first discover you wanted to be a writer and why writing?
I think I was nine when I began writing stories. I had ideas in my head well before that, but at least that age was when I knew to get them down on paper in order to make room for the rest. Writing makes me feel a…

Sneaky’s Interview of Ivy from Marie Lavender’s Romantic Drama Collection, Directions of the Heart

Ivy the cat from DIRECTIONS OF THE HEART visits this cool kitty blog!

Sneaky The Library Cat's Blog

Wow, Meow. I have another character cat of author Marie Lavender here with me today. What is your name, pretty cat?

My name is Ivy. 

Very mice name for a cat character. What book(s) have you appeared in? Please list them and their genre.

I appeared in Directions of the Heart. This is a modern romantic drama collection.

Are you in a series? If so, please give information about it.

Ivy’s human co-star, Victoria.

I’m not in a book series, but you could say there is a series since there are four different tales in the collection. I am only in one of them, however. That tale is titled “Strange Heat.” The story is about my owner, Victoria, who goes on a bizarre adventure when she pretends to be someone else for a week. One of the other stories in the collection includes a Golden Retriever. Uggh…dogs!

Mystery Blogger Award Nomination!

_Okoto Enigma is the creator of this award.

A FUN BLOG HOP

I’d like to thank the awesome Juneta Key at the Writer’s Gambit blog, for this nomination!  Thank you, thank you, thank you, Juneta!I do have a few mystery books out and some in progress, so I’ll play. I was lucky enough to be interviewed by Juneta – such a talented lady – twice, for two books in my historical series. Here is her blog nomination. You should really check out her great blog!

The Rules:

Rule 1:  Put the award logo/image on your blog. (ABOVE)

Rule 2:  List the rules. (You’re Reading Them)

Rule 3:  Thank whoever nominated you and provide a link to their blog. (Ronel-ABOVE)

Rule 4:  Mention the creator of the award and provide a link as well. (ABOVE under LOGO)

Rule 5:  Tell your readers three things about yourself.

THREE THINGS ABOUT ME

Wait, I have to limit it to three?! All right, I guess I’ll try.

  1. I am a Libra. Contrary to popular belief about that sign, I’m neither lazy nor indecisive. The toughest issue I have with being a Libra is always seeing both sides to a problem, and only that can make me somewhat cautious about the decision. For example, deciding on a restaurant is the absolute worst for a Libra, unless I know exactly what sounds good that day. LOL.
  2. I am a shopaholic, especially a bargain shopper. I am crazy about online shopping, but I don’t mind going out now and then to find something either. Credit cards are my weakness, so I have to be good as much as possible. Which is hard, because I’m one of those people who loves to buy for family and friends.
  3. As a writer, my go-to writing subscriptions are Live Write Thrive, Indies Unlimited and A Writer’s Path. But damnit, there’s just never enough time in the day to read everything. 😉

Rule 6:  You have to nominate a bunch of people (some say 5, while others say 20).

Well…okay. I’ll nominate:

  1. C.L. Bush (she has a great historical mystery series)
  2. Ashley Fontainne
  3. D.J. Swykert
  4. Margo Bond Collins
  5. Christopher Davis
  6. Rachael Stapleton (time travel mystery)
  7. Anyone that would like to join us, consider yourself nominated.

Rule 7:  Notify your nominees. (Done.)

Rule 8:  Ask your nominees any five questions of your choice, one weird or funny question.

1. Who is your favorite author and which book is your favorite?

2. If you had three wishes, what would your THIRD wish be?

3. How long have you been blogging? 

4. If you could meet anyone in real life (alive, dead or even a fictional character), who would you invite to hang with on a day out in the city?

5. If you could have a superpower, what would it be? And what would your superhero or supervillain name be? Get creative!

 

Rule 9: Share a link to your best post.

Outside the Lines or On Perseverance or The Other Side of Our Dreams. I have three other blogs, but my author website was chosen, so I had to choose these. They are about equal in views.

ANSWERING JUNETA’S 5 QUESTIONS:

  1. If you could get a redo on ONE thing in your life without impunity, what would it be? I’d choose to be a little more patient with myself. Putting the pressure on constantly has only harmed me in the long run.
  2. If you had three wishes, what would your THIRD wish be? I think I’d prefer that we have less hate in the world. People are always talking about other haters, and it’s hard not to see the “hate” which is descending our world into chaos. Hate comes in all forms, and sometimes it even arrives in sheep’s clothing. However, true hate starts at home. So fix yourself first; evaluate and erase the hate in your own life. Be a more honest, kinder person, and then you can worry about trying to help others do the same.
  3. Describe your “true self” in three words. A little nutty, creative and open-minded.
  4. If you were a Star Wars character, who would you be? I think maybe I’d choose Luke Skywalker. Sure, he had a long, hard journey, but he usually did the right thing for everyone, including himself. And seriously?!…damn those Ewoks for being so cute! I just want to adopt one and let him baby my cats.
  5. If you had the opportunity to know your future, would you?  Nah, I probably wouldn’t. I think it would ruin the surprise! 😉

Thanks again, Juneta, for the nomination! Everyone else, feel free to jump into this cool blog hop! 🙂
