We are big fans of L.A. Casey’s Slater Brothers series and we can’t wait for Aideen to be released on Nov. 3! We’re so excited to feature her and share her answers with you! Read on for more about L.A. Casey and then check out her books!
1. Have you always wanted to be a writer?
Nope, I always enjoyed writing, but never in a millions thought of a career when I was little so I never even considered it. It was after I wrote DOMINIC when I was nineteen that I wanted to try and make a go of it.
2. Are you a full time writer? If so, what did you do in your “previous life?”
I am indeed, and before writing I never had a proper job, I was just out of college when I published my first book.
3. If you could go back in time, what advice would you give your younger self?
Don’t take things to heart so easily.
4. Do you work on one storyline at a time or do you have multiple storylines in the pipeline?
Multiple! I’ve so many WIP’s that is mind blowing!
5. Let’s play favorites! Who is your favorite character you’ve written?
I’ve had the most fun writing Alec from ALEC which is the second book in the Slater Brothers series. He is really witty, and I’ve laughed out loud writing him in scenes.
6. Have you experienced any of your stories personally?
Some situations I’ll add from experience and just expand on them, but nothing as a whole. I make the majority of it up.
7. What are your biggest distractions?
8. What is your least favorite part of the writing or publishing process?
I could do without editing. LOL
9. Do you find it difficult, or challenging to write from the male POV?
I’ve only written from a male’s POV once, and I enjoyed it, I’m looking forward to doing it again.
10. What activities do you enjoy outside of writing?
Football! I love football.
11. Do you have a favorite author or book?
I’m a huge fan of Lorelei James, and my favourite book right now is ‘Numbers’ by Laurann Dohner.
12. Ever think you have a great idea for a book, only to find out someone released the same storyline already?
Luckily no, I’ll probably cry if that happened. LOL
13. Have you ever had writer’s block and how do you work through it?
Once while I was writing KANE, and I wouldn’t wish it upon my worst enemy. It was very difficult, but one day I just got a random idea for the second half of the story and I went with it and that was the end of that.
14. Do you ever find yourself jumping up from the dinner to table to jot down a scene that just ran through your head?
Yep, I always have my phone with me, so I open up the Notes app and jot it down.
15. What does your writing work space look like?
Like a bomb hit it, let’s just leave it at that. LOL
16. Sharing your work with the public has to be scary. How do you respond to negative reviews?
I don’t. I take the constructive ones into consideration and let it fuel my writing so I can try better myself. I don’t let them get me down anymore.
17. Do you have any visuals for your characters from any of your books?
No, I can only see my characters in my head. I’m not the type of author to do a dreamcast, that’s just not me. I enjoy when the readers do though, I think it’s fun to see who they envision to be my characters.
18. Can you tell us what you are working on next?
Currently I’m writing RYDER, and another book that I can’t talk about yet until I’m allowed do so 😉
19. What is in your purse right now?
Chewing gum, lip balm, a pen, a note pad, my keys, a lollipop and a bottle of water.
20. Do you have a favorite scene or book of your own?
Not that I can think of, I enjoyed writing my books as a whole, but I don’t have one scene that I think I like better than the other.
