STARLA KAYE’S Guest Author- Ashlynn Monroe, multi-published romance author

Today I’m welcoming a familiar name on my blog, Ashlynn Monroe. She took part in the recent showcase of Decadent authors with her books Vengeance and Retribution. This time she is sharing a little about herself and introducing you to more of her published works.

Ashlynn, how do you respond to someone who says, “You write WHAT?”

Bahahaha!

(Starla)  It is good to feel comfortable about what you write.

 

Do you have cheerleaders supporting you as a writer?

My co-workers and family have been fantastic.

 

What are your hobbies or other interests that get you away from the stress of writing?

Wii, long bubble baths, reading, and biking are my favorite stress busters.

(Starla) I can identify with bubble baths and reading as stress busters. I’m terrible at Wii games.

 

What made you decide to try and be a published author?

I’ve written since I was 13. After I turned 30, I decided to just go for it. Being published was my greatest desire.

(Starla) And clearly you are doing very well.

 

Give us two random thoughts about yourself, something that might surprise your readers.

If I could eat Chinese food while watching true blood and getting a back rub, I think I might die of happiness.

I love the color purple.

 

How long have you been writing? What is your main writing genre?

I’ve written since I was 13 and my first book was a sci-fi romance. It’s still my favorite genre to write.

 

How and why did you decide to use a pen name?

I like the freedom of having a pen name. I write more boldly than I would otherwise. Ashlynn was the name I would’ve given my son if he’d been a she. Monroe was the maiden name of my grandmother who introduced me to romance.

 

Where do you find inspiration for your stories?

Everywhere, especially dreams and music. Ideas come to me with ease.

 

Describe your working environment.

Chaotic. I have two kids and work full time. I write every chance I get and I can start and stop quickly due to years of practice.

 

How do you deal with rejection?

I have thick skin. Being the fat girl in school really prepared me for editorial rejections. lol
