Author Interview: Moira Keith

Author Interview: Moira Keith

Today I'm super excited to share a interview with Moira Keith the author of the exciting new Moonlight Series. 

Mandy - Where do you get your inspiration?
Moira - Usually I find it in the things I see or hear in everyday life as well as from reading. I have a very active imagination so it only takes a little seed to start the idea tree off.

Mandy -Where did you get the idea for Blood and Moonlight?
Moira - The idea for Blood and Moonlight came to me while I was reading a book called Wars of the Irish Kings. It details battles fought both real and mythological. It was a mythological battle that was my seed of inspiration. It gave me the perfect opportunity to blend two things I love—faeries and wolves.

Mandy - Did you always know you wanted to be a writer?
Moira - No. When I was younger I always thought I would be an artist or a marine biologist. In fact, I obsessed over marine biology for a while. Something just kept me from pursuing that, perhaps a sixth sense.

Mandy - Where and when do you prefer to do your writing?
Moira - I've written in a lot of places, but it seems my most productive time is in the mornings. That is when I have to face the least amount of distractions. As far as where...well I actually float back and forth between sitting on my bed with the laptop or the desk.

Mandy -If your book was made into a TV series or Movie, what actors would you like to see playing your characters?  Feel free to add pics.
Moira - Henry Cavill, would play Devlin well I think. He has that whole sexy, brooding thing down and he is definitely delish. Plus, he could kick some serious arse if need be.

Ashley Greene for Kiara would work well. I love her personality and I think she can really portray Kiara the way I see her. 

Mandy - Do you prefer ebooks, paperbacks or hardcover?
Moira -  I tend to enjoy ebooks for the ability to carry lots of books without taking up much space. If I really love the book though, I have to get it in hardcover for my collection. Some authors are auto hardcover buys for me though.

Mandy - What are 5 items you never leave home without.
Moira - Well it depends on where I'm going, but usually I have my purse, kindle fire, my twin lil zombies (do they count?), pen, and paper. (If I'm going somewhere where I will have time to write, then the pen and paper are traded for the laptop)

Mandy - Do you have a guilty pleasure?
Moira - Going to the local pub with some of my friends. Nothing beats hanging out, talking, eating potato skins, and having draft Guinness.

Mandy - Do you have a favorite TV show?
Moira - A little secret about me, I don't have cable or even receive local channels on my TV. However, when I get the chance to indulge in shows, I'm an NCIS and Walking Dead junkie.

Mandy - Anything you want to say to your readers?
Moira - Just keep reading. In no way, can an author continue to do what they love without you!
