Is Summoned your first novel?
No, but yes. But no. I’ve completed four other manuscripts before Summoned, but they are all part of another series which is not quite ready to be plopped onto Amazon. My friend, author Natasha Larry, and I decided to take a break from our usual made up worlds and each try something else. Sixteen days later, I had written the draft of Summoned. A couple of months later, I signed with my lovely agent, Rossano Trentin.
Do you intend to write any more novels?
Yep. While Summoned was written as a standalone novel (no cliffhanger), there are likely to be a few more adventures with Dimitri. He’s way too much fun to write. Plus there’s that other series in progress, and a few other outlines floating around in my brainspace.
Why did you decide to write about genies?
I didn’t decide to write about genies. I decided to write about Dimitri and, as it turns out, he’s a genie. He doesn’t live in a lamp or use magic, but you wouldn’t want to be on the receiving end of a wish he has to fulfill.
Why did you write about a male character?
The primary protagonist of the other series is also male, so even though Dimitri is nothing like him, it wasn’t something I had to give any real thought. Despite the fact “kick ass females” are a big thing right now, I think you just kind of know if your character is going to be male or female.
What was the most difficult part of writing Summoned?
I was working a day job and then turning around and pulling another eight hours writing. I did this nearly every night for sixteen days. So, basically, the hardest part of writing Summoned was recovering from the caffeine addiction.
