Welcome Melissa, thank you for visiting the blog today
Tell us a little about yourself
Well I am from the south coast town of Bournemouth In England, I have been writing since I was sixteen and have written fifteen novels so far. I just love it.
What book/s have you brought along to tell us about today? (Up to three)
I Immortal, I Immortal Part 2 World in Flames and Part 3 Fire and Ice.
Are you working on another book right now?
Yes, I am always working on a new book.
What do you enjoy most about writing? The ability to lose myself with my characters and in these books the concept of immortality; wouldn’t it be wonderful to never die?
What do you like the least?
Bad shoulders and aching fingers. Not being able to sleep because my head is spinning with ideas
Would you like to see any of your books as movies?
Oh yes, in fact lots of my fans ask the same thing. I’d love to see my characters bought to life.
If so can you name any actors you would like to see as the lead characters in your book.
Tough one, because Amelia and Peter are so amazingly beautiful I just know it would be hard, plus they are only eighteen so I suppose actors that look young and could pass as eighteen, I think Jennifer Lawrence could make a good Amelia, Alex Pettyfer for William, but Peter I just wouldn’t have a clue.
What things do you like to do to relax?
Read and watch movies, my husband says I write too much.
Do you have another job as well as writing?
Full time mum right now, I don’t have time for anything else.
If you could have one super power in your existence, what would it be?
To be able to shift (move at the speed of thought) like my Humangels, that would be awesome.
If money were not an object, where would you most like to live?
America, I have a lot of family and friends over there, Canada is a close second.
What kind of car would you have if money was no object?
Husband wants a Mustang, I would settle for a Volvo XC90.
What’s your favorite food?
Can you think of a song or piece of music that could be your theme tune?
Florence and the Machine, ‘Shake it off’ or Rhianna and Coldplay ‘Princess of China.’
Just answer these questions as quickly as possible.
Chocolate or vanilla?-----vanilla
Dog or cat?---- dog
The film or the book?----- book
Heels or flats? Heels
Jeans or dress? Jeans
Beach or Snow resort? Beach
Flowers or chocolate? Flowers
Bath or shower? Bath
What do you love best about yourself? My imagination
What do you like least? My face.
Do you have anything to share with other authors that might be a help?
Just keep at it, someone somewhere will love your work, believe in yourself and others will follow.
Is there anything you would like to say to your readers?
I am overwhelmed by the amount of support you have shown me, I hope you continue to enjoy my work in the future as much, thank you.
Can you share one of your favorite parts of one of the books?
I didn’t think a human would be able to handle the truth, but he would not back down and I was cornered, I had exposed my powers to him and I probably would be in more trouble with the Elders. It wasn’t like I had wings to show him, so once inside we sat on the sofa in the den,
‘I am immortal’ I said, ‘I can’t die, I’ll never die’
‘I was born like it, Peter too’
‘So if you were to jump into a burning building’ he frowned.
‘The flames wouldn’t touch us.’ I nodded, ‘we have already been alive for many many years so…’
‘How many years?’ he asked.
‘Well I was born in the seventeenth century, not even Peter knows my true age.’ I smiled slightly.
‘But you told my mom your parents are dead’
‘They are, my mother was human and died a few years after I was born, my father died in the early nineteen hundreds.’
‘How could he die and you can’t?’ he then asked.
‘He was killed by Cornelius’ soldiers; the weapons they used were able to kill him, though he was already very weak’ he frowned again.
‘Are you a vampire, I saw the Dracula movie?’
‘No I am not a vampire, or a demon or a witch, why do you assume that immortality means I have to be something…dark and evil’
‘So what are you then?’ he asked, I bit my lip, I didn’t know how he would react.
‘Peter and I are Humangels’
‘Humangels, our mothers were human and our fathers are Angels’
‘As in heaven’
‘Yes’ I nodded, he thought for a few moments. ‘Are you OK?’
‘I uh…wow’ he said scratching his neck, ‘that’s pretty amazing’ he nodded his head slowly, ‘so the uh talk about Heaven, that was all true?’
‘I haven’t actually been to Heaven’ I replied, ‘but what I have seen is simply awesome’ I smiled, ‘Andrew you have to promise me you will not tell anyone’
‘Of course I won’t, my mom said that there was something about you, wholesome and pure, that she could feel nothing, but warmth and compassion around you. Now I know why’ then he frowned, ‘so now you have to leave, to go away’
‘Cornelius has found us again’
‘But I could help you’
‘Andrew, Cornelius is a dangerous Fallen Angel, he had his wings taken a long time ago which stripped him of his powers, but he is still alive and following us everywhere we go, if we stay everyone in town is in danger’
