Interview with author T.F. Walsh

T.F. Walsh

 

I’m very excited to have fellow blogger and now paranormal romance author T.F. Walsh on today. If you haven’t stopped by her blog check it out and take a look at her new book the first in a series Cloaked In Fur.

Cloaked in Fur is Available Now

As a moonwulf, Daciana never expected to fall in love with a human. Hell, she never imagined that she’d abandon her pack, endanger everyone around her, and break the worst rule possible. But she did.

A rogue werewolf is killing Daciana’s friends, and she sets on capturing the creature.  She’ll do whatever it takes to stop the beast. The police and her boyfriend, Inspector Connell Lonescu, are starting to question her involvement in the murders, which is endangering the pack’s secret existence. But when the pack alpha kidnaps Connell, revealing the awful truth about the creature and its connection to the pack, Daciana must choose between saving the man she loves and saving her pack family from certain death.

Please tell me something about you that no one knows 

For eight years I did gymnastics when I was young and most of those years were while we lived in Romania. During our last year in the country, just before we moved to Australia where my dad was, I had won a championship. Because of the complication with the way my father had ‘left’ Romania (communist during this time), the officials refused to award me any medals or acknowledgment of a win.

What are you reading now?

Some favourite books and authors

I love anything by Richard Laymon who writes suspense and horror fiction. I’m also a huge fan of Laurel K Hamilton’s Anita Blake series. At the moment I’m addicted to Maggie Stiefvater’s stories. I just finished reading The Raven Boys. Love! Can’t wait for the sequel to come out.

Is writing a new endeavour for you or a lifelong passion? 

I’ve been dabbling in it most of my life, but I only starting taking it seriously in the last several years.

Being a book blogger I’m fascinated by your experience now as an author, what has that been like for you? 

The biggest difference is the shorter timeframes on everything. Before, when I was just writing, everything was at my own pace, I took time to research and did things when I felt like it. Now as an author, there are so many more commitments and shorter deadlines. It means I’ve had to become more savvy at organising my time. I’ve actually set up my mac calendar with scheduled activities during the day, broken down between writing, editing, social media, research, reading, and reviewing stories from my critique partners. At the moment, my poor hubby hasn’t got a slot in the calendar

Do you feel this gives you an edge, some special insight perhaps? 

This shows me that to make it in the publishing industry, you have to approach writing with a bit of business sense. And, there’s no such thing as waiting for creativity to show up. It’s getting yourself into a routine where you write everyday, whether you want to or not.

Your book Cloaked in Fur is paranormal romance do you plan on expanding to other genre in the future? 

Definately. Most of my stories will always fall under the larger umbrella of fantasy since I love writing in this genre. But my writing is also heavily influenced by darker elements, so there might be something in the future in the horror genre.

At the moment, aside from working on the sequel to Cloaked in Fur, I’m also writing something new. A young adult fantasy novel, which is made up of three parts about six characters. It is set in a world filled with witches, steampunk monsters and magic, and at the heart of the story, there’s the struggle to find love. I’m so excited about this story. More to come soon.

Tell me about your writing routine please 

On the days I don’t go to work, since I work part-time, my routine is something like this:

7am Wake up and do half hour power walk on the treadmill

8.30am Sit down and write 1500-2000 words

12pm Take a small break

1pm Spend a few hours on editing

5pm Take another break

6.30pm – Jump into social media

8.30 – If I’m up to it, I’ll do some reading and reviews for critique partners

What’s next after Cloaked in Fur?

Book two of Cloaked in Fur is my focus right now. The story continues on from where book one ended. I don’t want to give it away for anyone who hasn’t read it yet, but let’s just say something bigger and scarier is coming for Daciana and the pack. And Connell will be at the center of it.

I’m also hoping to have good news to share in a few months about my new young adult book.
