Interview and Giveaway The Vampire, The Handler, and Me by Eileen Sheehan

What inspired you to become an author?  

It's just something I've always wanted to do since a young girl.

Do you have a specific writing style?  

Yes, I prefer to write in Point-of-View.

Do you write in different genres? 

Yes but the ones that publishers have accepted are all the same genre.

If yes which is your favorite genre to write? 

 I like paranormal, especially vampire romance.

How did you come up with the title for your latest book?  

It just came into my head.  That's usually what happens.  

Do you title the book first or wait until after it’s complete?  

I generally title the book within the first chapter.

Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp?

 No.  I just want them to relax and enjoy.

Is the book, characters, or any scenes based on a true life experience, someone you know, or events in your own life?  

No, but some of the scenes are inspired by true life events either for me or others.  An example is the convenience store scratch off scene after the crappy New Year's party in the first part of the book.   I had a slightly different version of it happen to me and of course the owner of the store was human.... I think.

What is your current “work in progress” or upcoming projects?  

I have 3 vampire romance novels that are contracted to be released by Eternal Press over the next two years.  One is in POV for a man.  The other two are POV from women.  I have plots that go back in time as well as traveling to other planets. 

Can you share a little of your current work with us? 

I am presently writing a novel that takes place in the future after nuclear toxicity has mutated much of life.  It is a vampire story, of course.

“My name is Nevi, Nevi Sharpe,” he said with a deep, sultry accent. “May I ask with whom I have the pleasure of sharing scratch-off tickets?”

I wanted to answer him but I was still stuck on stupid. I opened my mouth to speak and absolutely nothing came out.

How embarrassing.

How ridiculous.

How mortifying.

He was just a man, after all. What was my issue?

I just couldn’t move past the sense of magnificence that permeated the air around him. It was both electrifying and nerve wracking.

“You have a phone call,” blurted the bland voice of Miss Congeniality as she approached my newly discovered god-man with a cordless phone.

“Please excuse me,” he murmured in my direction as he snapped the phone from the clerk’s hand, obviously unhappy to be disturbed.

“Lizzy. Lizzy Ewing,” I forced past my lips as he stood up. “My name’s Lizzy Ewing.”

I could feel flames consume my cheeks when I realized how desperate my voice must have sounded. He studied me with dancing eyes—momentarily forgetting his annoyance about the phone call.“Nice to meet you, Lizzy Ewing,” he said warmly. “Please excuse me.”

With that, he lifted the phone unceremoniously to his ear and disappeared through a doorway behind the counter. I assumed it led to his office. At the faint sound of another door shutting behind that door, I felt I assumed right.

The clerk shuffled through the array of lotto tickets spread out on the counter in front of me with a notable smirk on her broad, acne infested face before looking up at me. “That’ll be twenty-five dollars,” she stated smugly.

I stood there looking at her for a brief moment while it registered with me…I was getting stuck with the entire bill of my not so private scratch-off tryst!
