I recently had the opportunity to interview some fellow paranormal authors. Today’s interview is with the awesome Debra Dunbar. Enjoy!
Hi Debra. Thanks for letting me interview you!
What’s the inside scoop on the book you’re promoting in the sale? Tell us what’s special about it and if it’s part of a series.
Demons of Desire is book 1 of the Half-breed series, a sexy Urban Fantasy set in a different cool destination for each novel: New Orleans, Maui, Hel (hell), Napa Valley, and Northern Italy. Although Hel is more hot than cool!
What’s your favorite writing ritual?
Writecations. When I know I need to get some serious word-count in, I try to schedule time away from home. Sometimes it’s a local B&B, sometimes it’s a cabin up in the mountains or the lake. Getting away from the daily distractions really fires up the muse. And when I can’t manage even a local writecation, I head to a little pub in town with a dozen microbrews on tap and some amazing Old Bay dry-rub wings and sit up at the bar with my laptop. The bartenders all know me and joke that I should have a little brass name tag on the back of my bar stool.
If you could have dinner with someone (dead, alive, fictional or real) who would it be and why?
Julia Child. The food would be amazing and she always struck me as a fun, interesting person to hang out with. We’d drink a lot of wine, eat rich food loaded with butter, and end up besties, I know!
Anything you want to tell the readers?
If what you’re reading doesn’t make you laugh out loud at least once, find another book! Unless you’re one of those serious literary fiction types. In that case, read on.
Some fun fast facts about Debra . . .
What’s your favorite color? Red. Hides the bloodstains almost as well as black and doesn’t make me look like a middle-aged goth.
What show did you last binge-watch? Alone. I’m not a huge fan of reality shows, but the whole survival thing was intriguing.
Are you a beer or wine person? Both? I like beer in the summer and wine in the winter.
What food helps your writing mojo? Grandma Utz potato chips
What paranormal species is your fav to write? I love to write about Demons. They’re naughty and sexy and complex. Ever since I read Paradise Lost, I’ve had a thing for the Fallen.
Are your a book plotter or a pantser? I’m a pantser until 2/3 of the way through my first draft, then I become a plotter.
Are you a fan of boxers or briefs? Boxers. Gotta let that stuff breathe, my man.
Who’s your favorite band or singer? Rob Zombie
Meet the Author
Debra lives in a little house in the woods with her three sons, and a Noah’s ark of four-legged family members.
She drives a gigantic diesel SUV, couldn’t carry a tune if you duct taped it to her back, and enjoys an occasional cosmopolitan (heavy on the vodka).
On a good day, she jogs and horseback rides, hopefully managing to keep the horse between herself and the ground.
Her only known superpower is ‘Identify Roadkill’.
