INTERVIEWING Ren Alexander

QUICKFIRE ROUND

-What's the last book you read? 

Gus by Kim Holden. Brilliant read.


-Who's your celebrity crush?

Theo James


-If you were an alcoholic beverage, which one would you be?

Maple whiskey from Canada that my PA gives me.


-Which couple is your OTP?

In the book world it'd be Kellan and Kiera. 


INTERVIEW


-What inspired you to start writing?

When I was a kid, that's what I liked to do. I wrote all the time, but hated my handwriting, still do. I was excited when I got my first electric typewriter, and overjoyed when I got access to a computer back then. Mostly, I had stories bottled up in my head that I'd relive in my daydreams, over and over again. I was always yelled at for daydreaming. I still do that, too.


-What's your favorite genre to write and/or read?

Contemporary romance for both.


-Do you plan or go with the flow when it comes to writing?

I do outline. I strive so hard to stick to it. However, when I'm writing, like so many other writers, I see a movie playing in my head and I transcribe it. So often, I veer from the outline because I let the characters take the wheel, therefore, a lot of times, I'm reading the book, wondering what will happen, just like my readers. The book really does take on a life of its own. It's scary.


-Tease us! What are you currently working on? What can readers expect from your next book and/or future works? 

My next book is the fourth book in my Wild Sparks series, Enduring the Wild Sparks, which releases April 26, 2016. It's the aftermath of what happened in the third book, Igniting the Wild Sparks. Hadley Beckett is on the road to redemption. She has to figure out a way to fight her way back from Hell, or be relegated to a life there forever.
