Interview with Sienna Snow



What initially got you interested in writing?

My interest in writing started at an early age. When I was in the third grade, my elementary school principal gave me a copy of Beezus and Ramona. From the moment I finished the book, I wanted to write adventures for other children to read. Needless to say, that didn’t happen but the seeds were planted for the future.

How did you decide to make the move into being a published author?

A few years ago, my husband was reading an article on NaNoWriMo (Nation Novel Writing Month) and suggested I participate. At first, I wasn’t sure I should do it since I’d placed my writing aspirations on hold over twenty-five years before hand, but then I thought, why not and signed up.  I never did anything with that first novel, but it gave me the push I needed to pursue writing.

What do you want readers to take away from reading your works?

What I want my readers to take away the most is that my books gave them an escape for reality and show them a world where smart, strong, and successful women can have enriching and fulfilling love stories.

What do you find most rewarding about writing?

The ability to give the characters in my head a happily ever after.

What do you find most challenging about writing?

Making sure, I convey my lead character’s GMC (Goals, Motivations, and Conflicts) throughout the whole book.  Sometimes it is easy to become sidetracked with unnecessary scenes and take the lead in a direction that doesn’t flow with the story.

What advice would you give to people want to enter the field?

The one piece of advice I would tell aspiring authors is to keep moving forward through all the hardships and struggles. It is easy to give up, but keep trying. This is a marathon, not a race.

What ways can readers connect with you?

I love hearing from my readers. The can find me on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

Book Description:

She controls a technology empire. He controls her.

At just twenty-eight years old, Arya Rey has become queen of the tech world. While she is highly respected as a philanthropist and fearless businesswoman, no one would suspect that beneath her controlled exterior simmers a private passion. A desire never spoken of in Boston's elite social circles. A need for submission, for satisfaction, for the kind of exquisite pleasure that can only be provided by one man . . . her billionaire ex-lover Maxwell Dane.

It's been five years since Max and Arya last met. Five years that they've longed for the feel of each other's skin. Max always takes what he wants, and he wants Arya back. But it's more than the memory of her broken heart that makes her resist. During their time apart, Arya has collected secrets of her own. She can give Max her body, but can she give him the truth?



About the Author:

Born in London, England, Sienna Snow moved to the USA at the age of five. From an early age, she learned to balance two cultures, keeping the traditions of the Indian while learning the ins and outs of the American.

Her love of reading started at a very young age with “Beezus and Ramona.” By the time she entered high school, a girlfriend introduced her to Bertrice Small and Jude Deveraux (much to the horror of the nuns at her Catholic school), and an avid romance reader was born.

Writing was her childhood aspiration, but her loving parents encouraged her to seek a “real job.” So, she placed her secret passion on hold and went on to receive two bachelor’s degrees and two masters degrees.

After a prolific career as a management consultant and the completion of her husband’s medical degree, she became a stay at home mom and PTO Goddess.

Sienna has a deep-rooted love for travel and planning vacations years in advance. Her goal is to visit all seven continent in the next ten years.

When she is not writing, traveling, or reading, she spends her time with her husband and two children.

Sienna writes sexy romance, some with a lot of heat and spice and others with a bit of fantasy. Her characters represent strong women of different cultures and backgrounds, who seek love through unique circumstances.
