Author Interview

Hi everybody, well guess what I got the chance to chat with a new author. Her name is Sherri Lee Claytor, she is the author of "After the Fall of Night" and here's a little bit more about her and her new book I just finished reading.

Stacey– Tell us what got you interested in not only writing, but PNR writing?

Sherri- First of all, thank you, Stacey, for the interview. About writing, since I can remember, it’s always been something I wanted to do. I never seem to find the time I’d like for reading, between family and writing, but when I do, it’s typically a ghostly tale or paranormal romance that I reach for. This is what sparks my interest. I love creating these stories where anything goes and growing with the characters—vampires, werewolves, ghosts, etc.

Stacey- Can you give us a little background on your Vampires and what motivated your story-line?

Sherri- After researching vampires, I sat down and put together an outline, and the story just seemed to evolve on its own. I started with Corin, trying to stay true to the original idea of a vampire. However, I didn’t want the story to grow stale, so I decided to mix it up with otherworldly immortals. I hope to expand on some of these characters in the future.

Stacey– Do you have plans to continue the story-line? If so do you already have an idea of how many books are going to be in the series?

Sherri- Yes. I left an open window and hope to do a sequel.

Stacey- It was interesting how you brought out the different vampires from another dimension, do you have any more twists planned now that we see there is a whole other world out there?

Sherri- I would like to delve more into the Eleventh Dimension. I believe there is a lot more to be told in both worlds.

Stacey- “After the Fall of Night” seems to have a hint of Urban Fantasy in it, will you stay within the Paranormal Romance genre or begin to blend into Urban Fantasy with your future books?

Sherri- I’ll probably touch on other genres but most likely continue to incorporate supernatural elements into whatever I write. And I’ll always have a special love for paranormal romance.

Stacey- And finally anything else you would like to tell the readers? What plans you do have for any upcoming books?

Sherri- I’ve just finished a supernatural fiction novel called “Valley of the Shadow” that I’m ready to submit to editors. Following this, I have a couple of other projects already in the works, one is a paranormal romance and the other a sci-fi/fantasy series that I’ve been wanting to tackle for some time. Wish me luck. lol

Thanks again Sherri for the great interview and I definitely wish you. I look forward to what's next!!
