Author Interview – Lara Nance




How long have you been writing? Since 1988 as a hobby, then to be published in the last 5 years.

What inspires you to write and why? I’ll have an idea pop in my head and I become intrigued and want to explore it.

What genre are you most comfortable writing? Paranormal romance or mystery

Who or what influenced your writing once you began? Reading widely in a variety of genres and voraciously.

Who or what influenced your writing over the years? Same answer

What do you consider the most challenging about writing a novel, or about writing in general? With many crafts you can finish them in a day or week. But writing a novel takes months, and to see it published sometimes takes years. You have to have a lot of persistence, patience, and stamina to be in this business.

Did writing this book teach you anything and what was it? Patience and being able to accept suggestions by my beta readers. It’s the first time I’d used a critique group and it really helped in the development.

Do you intend to make writing a career? Yes, definitely.  It’s already a second job and I hope will soon be my only job.

What is your greatest strength as a writer? I’m a fast writer and I learn quickly from previous mistakes.

Have you ever had writer’s block? If so, what do you do about it? My writer’s block is always about plotting. If I don’t know where the story is going, I can’t write until I plot it out.

Can you share a little of your current work with us? I’m currently finishing the third book in my steampunk adventure series. When I finish that I’ll be working on the second book in my DraculaVille series.

How did you come up with the title? Memories of Murder is from memories of both the Alzheimer’s patients in the story and the woman who left a diary about the murders committed by a doctor at an old insane asylum on the site of a current retirement community. The memories of the past allow the hero and heroine to solve the present day murders.
