Author interview with Julia Matthews

Yesterday I featured Julia’s upcoming book Red Moon Circle: Human-Skinned Wolves Book 2 and she was kind enough to let me interview her.

  • When did you first realise that you wanted to be a writer? When I was around sixteen and realized just how many hours I spent daydreaming about what most considered off the wall stuff.
  • How many books have you written so far? Red Moon Circle Book 2 of the Human Skinned Wolves Series will be my seventh book. First four was a series called Journey Series. The fifth was Witch & Wolf. Then Moon Called Human Skinned Wolves Book 1.
  • What inspired the Human Skinned Wolves Series? Human Skinned Wolves were inspired by some wildflowers behind my house. (Not the ones mentioned in the story.) Then each book has their own inspiration. Like Moon Called came from my love to sit in my back yard under the moonlight when I was a child. Red Moon Circle came from a photo of the night sky where the moon had a red ring around it.
  • What was the hardest part of writing for you? Hardest part of writing for me cutting unnecessary part(s) of a story. I get emotional invested in each word I write, so when I have something that’s extra for a book I struggle to delete it.
  • Who is your favorite character in this story? Why? My favorite Red Moon Circle is Brandon. He’s a man with undying determination to be his own person, no matter what is thrown his way.
  • What do you do when you’re not writing? When I’m not writing I reading or watching a movie.
  • What is the strangest writing habit that you have? I have to have a bowl of forbidden candy (forbidden because I’m a diabetic). It’s like a struggle play for me. I set the candy next to my computer and won’t allow myself to snatch a piece until I completed a present goal.

What advice would you give aspiring writers? Best advice is to write what you see and never quit.

Thanks for joining me Julia and best of luck with your new book.
