Interview with author S.C. Stephens

Friday, October 19, 2012
Welcome everyone! Today we have a Q/A session with author S.C. Stephens of the fantastic series Thoughtless.

So here we go!

Who's your favorite author or what's your favorite book(s)?
I love fantasy, supernatural, and contemporary romance. I love Terry Goodkind, Stephanie Meyer, and Richelle Mead. I adore Nicky Charles, K.A. Linde, Jamie McGuire, Colleen Hoover, and Tarryn Fisher. I’m unfortunately a very slow reader, so my to-read list is insanely long. There are so many good books that I’m dying to read!

What inspired you to write Thoughtless?
Lots of daydreaming and listening to music. I visualize songs when I listen to them, and I kept seeing Kellan on stage during my favorite songs. I imagined him in all sorts of different situations, and eventually threw him into a love triangle with another character I’d fallen in love with, Denny.

Are there any characters that you relate more to?
Probably Kiera. She has a lot of my quirks and insecurities.

What character was the hardest to write?
None of them were difficult to write for. It really was like watching a movie playing in my head. I never had to “figure out” what a character was going to do or say. I just watched what they did and wrote it down.

What was your favorite scene to write?
There were so many! The espresso stand, the rain, the back room fight. I love writing any scene that’s packed with emotion.

How long did it take you to write Thoughtless?
I finished it in about six months.

Is there any advice you’d like to give fellow writers?
Just keep plugging away at it. I love to write, and I try to fit in a little bit of writing time every day. It’s easy to get distracted with other things, so finding quiet time is crucial. And daydream. A lot.

What is your favorite thing about being an author?
Writing! Creating characters and worlds. Figuring out why people do things and how they ended up where they are. And also watching readers fall in love with my characters. It makes me giddy that people love Kellan as much as I do. There is so much about being an author that I love. I’m honored that people like my stories enough that I’m able to do this for a living now. It’s a dream come true for me.
