Author Interview ~ Dorothy Dawson

It is my great pleasure to introduce you to author, Dorothy Dawson - here is an interview she did with me late last year!

Can you tell us a little bit about yourself that we won’t find in your bio?
I love animals. At this point, I have 3 rescue cats and 2 rescue dogs.

What do you do in your spare time or when you are not writing?

I run a small advertising company with my husband.

When did you first start writing?
When I learned to write! I used to make little books when I was a child.

How or why did you choose the genre you write in?
I chose the genre that I read the most. I know there are some genres that aren’t so saturated, but I just love inventing new worlds and sometimes creatures. It’s so much fun to let your imagination go wild.

Do you ever experience writer’s block?
Yes. And it sucks. But, I can usually find a way to get myself out of it. Usually a great book or good scary movie will help.

Do you work with an outline, or do you just write?

I’ve done both. If any ENTIRE story comes into my head, I try to jot down an outline so I don’t forget anything. But if I have an idea and need to just work it out, I just write.

What was your favorite chapter (or part) to write and why?
The first chapter in the third book of Banesville was a blast to write. It was the first time I felt like I had really broken through with a character and was able to put myself in their shoes. Plus, the scene was so intense, it just poured out of me.

What project are you working on now?
I’m almost finished with a project called Granted. “Be careful what you wish for.”

Are there certain characters you would like to go back to, or is there a theme or idea you’d love to work with again?
I love all the characters in Banesville and would love to carry on with that story line. But, I have to say I love Declan, from Conception of Evil, and would love to expand on that. We shall see.

Fast Five

Favorite food… It varies, but right now, bacon cheese burger. :)

Favourite movie… I get made fun of for this all the time, but Knowing with Nicolas Cage. Love that movie.

Cat lover or Dog person…
Both, but I guess I prefer cats

Celebrity crush… Jeffrey Dean Morgan

If you weren’t a writer, you’d be… graphic designer

Thanks so much for agreeing to be interviewed <3

Three former college buddies that endlessly debated the existence of giants, or Nephilim, in biblical times are reunited for a mass murder investigation. They find that these slayings were not committed by men. The 'fallen ones' had come to claim the women who were worthy to bear their children, and once again, their offspring would bring terror to the Earth. Two Secret Societies had fought against each other for years. The Sodalitat had worked endlessly to prevent such a shattering event from taking place. The Camorra did everything in their power to bring upon the resurrection of the Nephilim, going as far as attempting to recreate the creatures in a lab using viable DNA from excavated bones. A young student gets caught in the crossfire when she is chosen. Women who are found unworthy are slaughtered. The government finds a gene marker that allows them to indicate if a citizen is a descendant of the Nephilim, and calls forth those with distinct characteristics to be tested. Pandemonium breaks loose across the world as citizens react to the news.
