Rebecca: I'm Rebecca. I'm from Rhode Island though I was a NYC bartender for almost six years. I am a YA book fanatic. I think my dog Louie is a person. I talk to him like he's real. Oh, and I'm the author of Infinite Days, the first book in the Vampire Queen trilogy.
2) What was your inspiration for writing Infinite Days?
Rebecca: I started to free write one day. I literally sat down, started writing and Lenah’s voice came through, I let her tell the story and 8 months later, I had a draft of Infinite Days. I wish this story were more exciting. I wish I could say that I had a vision! Or a dream! But no...I was in a dark library writing.
3) Were there any personal experiences that went in to Infinite Days?
Rebecca: I was a bartender for a long time. I lived my life at night - I also bartended through my 20s. Maybe there are some unconscious personal things in there. But no, I've never been a 592 year old vampire on the run from a dangerous coven :)
4) What was your inspiration for Lenah's character, is she a purely made up character or is she based on anyone?
Rebecca: She is most definitely a made up character. I think she's an amalgamation really of a lot of my past, my experiences and my regrets.
5)How many books do you plan to have in your Infinite Days series?
Rebecca: Three :)
6) What was your inspiration for the cover of Infinite Days?
Rebecca: Most of the time, especially with a teen book, an author has very little say in the design and execution of the cover. There are marketing teams and designers who make the covers and usually they designs are run by you (the author). It's not really a collaborative process.
7) What do you plan on doing in the future?
Rebecca: I am currently writing a realistic novel set on Cape Cod but I have a couple projects up my sleeve.
8) What are you reading right now?
Rebecca: The Mockingbirds - (ARC) by Daisy Whitney (I am loving it so far)
Nightshade (ARC) - by Andrea Cremer - but I'm only on page 2. :)
9) Who are a few of your favorite authors?
Rebecca: I love Lauren Kate - I think she's great. Fallen was a fun read and I really admired her writing style. I also adore Sophie Jordan's writing. Firelight is her new book coming out, I believe in September.
10) Do you write to music? Whats your favorite?
Rebecca: I do write to music! Usually it is music with no lyrics - classical or soundtracks. I am easily distracted. But in terms of bands, etc.? I love The National, Ryan Adams, The Doors and I admit, Taylor Swift! :)
I'm 25, live in Florida, and own way too many books. Wanna know a secret... I hated reading until my little sister made me read a little book called Twilight. Then I was hooked. Now I am obsessed with it. I guess I just needed some inspiration! Happy Reading!
