An Interview with Author Sandy Wolters

An Interview with Author Sandy Wolters

I featured fellow author Sandy Wolters yesterday, but there was just so much to say about her and her books that I couldn’t get it all into one post.  So she’s back this morning with a fantastic interview.

But first, a reminder about her books – the Rock Star series:

You can find both of her books on Amazon:  http://www.amazon.com/Sandy-Wolters/e/B00569J3UI/ref=sr_tc_2_0?qid=1417876442&sr=1-2-ent

And of course, on her website as well:  http://sandywolters.weebly.com/

And, as promised, here’s the interview…

Who is your favorite author?

This is a trick question, right?  I’m an eclectic reader.  I read so many different genres and enjoy them all, I couldn’t possibly narrow it down to just one author as a favorite.  Some favorites of mine that people would know are Nora Roberts and Michael Connelly.  I must admit, though, that when I do get a chance to read lately, I tend to pick up Indie Author books and enjoy them a lot.  I’ve gotten to the point where I love finding new authors to read.  There are some real gems out there just waiting to be discovered.

How do you describe your writing style?

I’m a character based author.  I want the readers to feel the joy and the pain my characters are going through.  I put a lot of emphasis on my characters because that’s what I like to read.  You have to either like or hate the people you’re reading about, otherwise a reader just doesn’t care what happens to them.  I like to pull at the reader’s emotional heartstrings.  Make them feel what they are reading.  If my words can make a reader cry, either happy or sad tears, of laugh out loud so people around them look at them like they’ve lost their minds, then my job is done.

In many of my books, I also have a bit of ghostly paranormal activity.  Many of us have lost loved ones and feel them around us when we need them.  The same goes for my books only generally, the dead characters have quite a since of humor and hopefully garner some laughs from the readers.

Use no more than two sentences. Why should we read your book?

My books take you on an emotional journey with people you care about.

Have any of your characters been modeled after yourself?

Not myself, but my daughters.  The women in my books are strong both emotionally and physically, just like my girls.  They may have their moments of emotional turmoil, but they always seem to pull through it with a smile on their face.  They can take care of themselves and are feisty as well as quick witted.

If you could exchange lives with any of your characters for a day which character would you choose and why?

I’d have to choose Shandelle from my time travel romance, Soul Mates.  I’d love to see Ireland back in the early 1300s.

What books have most influenced your life?

There really aren’t any books in particular that have changed my life.  Before I started to write myself, I only read romance for the most part.  So I guess you could say that genre has influenced me the most because I now write romance with a ghostly paranormal twist.  It is my first love.

If you could select one book that you could rewrite and add your own unique twist on, which book would that be and why?

Not going there!  As an author, I respect every writer’s work.  I may not care for the story, but I know what went into writing it.  I would hope to garner the same respect from every other author out there.

Beatles or Monkees? Why?

Monkees.  Isn’t it obvious why?  Davy Jones, of course.  LOL  When I was a kid, my walls were plastered with his posters.

Who should play you in a film of your life?

Hmm.  Good question.  I’ve never been asked this before.  I’d have to pick Sandra Bullock.  I like her easy going style and sense of humor.  I also likes that she snorts when she laughs.
