Interview with Lynne Silver author Love,Technically and Contest
L:I was born in New Jersey and moved quickly to Miami Florida where I grew up. My family is originally from Romania. My great-grandmother came to the US (by herself) in the 1920s when she was 15 years old. I write high heat (sexy) contemporary stories.
2. How did you become a writer?
L:I’ve always written for a living, but it used to be part of my corporate job. I wrote press releases and other communications for a technology company. When I was on maternity leave with my 2nd child, I started to write books.
3. Who inspired you to write?
L:I don’t think there was one person who inspired me. I have stories in my head that need to be told.
4. How old were you when you wrote the first book?
L:I’ve been writing stories since I could hold a pencil, but I didn’t write with the goal of publication until I was thirty years old.
5. Your favorite books?
L:I have favorite authors: Kresley Cole, Nalini Singh, Maude Hart Lovelace and the Harry Potter series
6. What inspired you to write Love,Tehnically?
L:The publisher put out a request for “geek” stories. Since I’m married to a tech geek, I knew I wanted to write a story for the submission call. I set the story at a fictionalized version of my old technology company.
7. Do you have a playlist for your book?
L:I can’t listen to music when I write. It’s too distracting.
8. Future projects?
L:I’m working on Eve’s story from Love, Technically. Desire Unmatched, book four in my Coded for Love Series should be out soon from Ellora’s Cave.
9.A message to the futures writers?
L:Keep reading and writing. Join professional organizations to learn all you can about the craft. And don’t give up! Keep telling stories.
10.A message for your fans?
