Question 1 If you could pick one thing to remove/change from any of your books or book, what would it be?

No Response from the author on this question

Question 2 What part of the book was the most fun to write?

The last 30% of the book is always what is the most fun for me to write. It’s when everything clicks in my head, and I realize that I’ve been unknowingly setting up for the big reveal or epic showdown the entire time. I always see it as magic, but in reality, my subconscious mind is already on board with how the book will play out. The rest of me just needs to catch up. LOL

Question 3 What is the significance of the title?

Each book in the Grimm Cove Series plays off the same title format. Something with a chance of something. When I realized Drest and Rachael had a story that needed to be told, I knew I wanted to play with some type of lightning angle since she’s a Frankenstein. He’s a big fan of classic rock, so the title instantly popped into my head.

Question 4 If you’re planning a series, can you share a tiny bit about your plans for it

Grimm Cove is pretty established by this point, but the world itself will be expanding. There are some spin-offs in the works that I think readers will enjoy. They’ll let them revisit characters they’ve come to love and meet new ones along the way.

Question 5 What’s your favorite spot to visit in your own country? And what makes it so special to you?

I love anywhere that is wooded. Honestly, you plunk me down in a forest, and I’m a happy gal.

Question 6 What’s your favorite writing snack or drink?

You’ll laugh, but my go-to writing drink is a 40 oz tumbler of water with lemon in it. I’m boring, I know. I do have a couple of cups of coffee sprinkled in throughout the day and maybe some tea, but for the most part, I drink water all day. As for snacks, I love salty foods. Black olives are a biggie for me.

Question 7 If your book were made into a movie, which actors would play your characters?

I see Eric Winter as Stratton and have from day one. I aged the character up so that it would match Eric in real life as well in the hopes of the series getting made into a TV show. I see Jay Harrington as Drest, and Brooke Shields would make a great Rachael. I used her photos as a reference while writing Rachael. There is a “newcomer” that really hasn’t gotten the big break I think he deserves that I’ve envisioned playing the part of Austin Van Helsing in the series. His name is Tyler Harlow. Interestingly enough, I came upon him when hunting for stock images to purchase for use on covers and checked out his Instagram. It became clear that he has a playful side and is an actor as well as a model. His vibe fits how Austin is written. Gabrielle Union would be amazing as Yolanda Bass from the series. Mads Mikkelsen would be awesome as Bram Van Helsing. Julie Benz would be perfect as Poppy Proctor. Boris Kodjoe would be so good as Dr. Dante Hartshorn. I’m going to stop listing people now because I could go on forever. LOL

Question 8 What was your favorite song while writing this book? Do you have a playlist I can share?

Against All Odds (Take a Look at Me Now) by Phil Collins was on heavy rotation for me while writing it. The song really fits the entire feel of the book and what they’re going through as a couple.

Question 9 Describe your writing space?

I write in my office for the most part. It’s lined with white bookshelves filled to the brim with research books. It has a floor-to-ceiling window that overlooks the backyard, which is wooded, so I feel like I’m writing in the treetops. It’s very peaceful for me.

Question 10 What advice do you have for writers/authors?

Write the way you want to write. There is no right or wrong way. Some days you’ll love it. Some days you’ll hate it. And most days, you’ll look around and realize no one really has any idea of what they’re doing. Just go with it.

Question 11 If you had to be shipwrecked on a deserted island, but all your human needs—such as food and water—were taken care of, what two items would you want to have with you?

The author had no response to this question.

Question 12 If you could compare yourself with any animal, which would it be and why?

The author had no response to this question.

I have enjoyed getting to know Author Mandy M. Roth and look forward to diving into her many series and genres in the future.
