Nemesis by Suzanne Madron

1. What inspired you to become an author?

It’s not something I really aspired to, it’s just something that happened and I rolled with it.

2. Do you write in different genres?

Yes. I write across the board in horror from gothic and vampire to post apocalyptic and on rare occasions, I write in zombie. I also write hardboiled occult noir mysteries that have a healthy dose of dark humor.

3. If yes which is your favorite genre to write?

I enjoy writing gothic and vampire horror quite a bit, and have loved writing hardboiled occult noir. It’s like being able to stretch your legs and walk around after a long trip in the car.

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

It depends on the book. In the case of my current work, the title didn’t come until the book was in progress. A God in a House of Crosses has been a deviant from my usual way of working in that I’m writing down the scenes and assembling them all after the fact and out of sequence, where typically I will write in a much more linear fashion and see where it goes. This one is being elusive.

5. What books/authors have influenced your life? 

Ann Radcliffe, the Bronte sisters, Stephen King, James Herbert, and Neil Gaiman

6. What book are you reading now? 

Bob Meets Same by Jaime Johnesee, Violent Violet by Tara Vanflower, The Void Between Emotions by Sumiko Saulson, and The Maximilian Emancipation by Charles A. Conyers, Jr.

7. What books are in your to read pile?

The Mother of All Monsters by Paula D. Ashe, Night Hag by Brian Barr, Prey by Tim Majka, and The Tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Bronte (aka Acton Bell).

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

I’m currently working on the fifth book in the Immortal War series, titled A God in a House of Crosses as well as working on the third book of the Metatron Mysteries titled Hand of Glory.

9. Is there anything you find particularly challenging in your writing?

Quite often I’ll have a scene playing over and over in my head for days and sometimes months before I can capture it onto paper. I write everything in a notebook, and for a particularly difficult scene, I’ll do sketches and storyboards of the scene before I finally grasp it from every angle enough to write it down. It’s like trying to catch a ghost sometimes.
