Watch Out: Elizabeth Loraine

WATCH OUT: Elizabeth Loraine Interview

SC:I want to welcome you all to another edition of Watch Out. This week I’m thrilled to bring you another fabulous guest. Please welcome author Elizabeth Loraine.
Welcome Elizabeth, it is a pleasure to have you here today.


EL:Thank you for having me.

SC: For those readers who are new to you and your work, please tell them a little about yourself.

EL: I just started writing last year at the age of 52. I am married and have two grown children. I grew up in a very small town in northern Minnesota, but have lived in Florida for 26 year now.

SC: What, or who inspired you to write?

EL: I always loved to read and had a life -long love of fantasy and vampires in particular. When I lost interest in what was available for vampire lovers today I decided to take up the challenge to write something myself.
SC:  How many books do you currently have published?

EL: There are three in my series Royal Blood Chronicles with the fourth Cain, the Quest due out just before Christmas.


SC:Can you tell us a little about each?

EL: The first book Katrina, the Beginning introduces readers to the Five, the Protectors of all the peaceful races of the world including humans. These Five young royal blood Vampire girls were drawn together to first protect their own race from being exposed to humans who are always trying to exterminate their race. It’s set in the 1800’s in Europe, Germany and Austria. But we follow them across continents and in book two they continue this fight gathering even more allies and enemies. Also in this book the  Protectors we find out more about these royal vampires and their family history and travel to the Sanctuaries which have been established as homes for the protected races which include elves, dwarves and house the treasures of all ancient cultures. Book Three the Dark Prince finds the Five in America stalked by a new enemy for the underworld kingdom of Althar. In America they find that vampires have allies of a new kind: humans including the Masons. But the Dark Prince wants Katrina at any cost.

SC:Your books are all about vampires? What made you decide to write about them?

EL: I love them. I always have since I was little. They just fascinate me like so many others, but I got bored by all the modern, teenage stories and I wanted to know more about these long lived beings.

SC: If you had the chance to be turned into a vampire would you take the offer?

EL: Only if my loved ones would be able to turn too. It would be interesting they would make great space travelers!

SC: Are there any author’s who have inspired you, or ones you look up to?

EL:I love the fairy tales of Hans Christian Andersen and of course Ann Rice.
Where do you see yourself as an author in the next five years? There will be more Royal Blood Chronicles and I hope to see Katrina on TV or on the movie screen.

SC: Being a published author what is the one big misconception you think that people have about writers/authors?

EL: That once the book is written the work is done. It just starts then. Convincing people you have a good product here, please read it takes time and passion.

SC: If you could pick to be a heroine from your books for a day, who would you pick and why?

EL: Oh Katrina of course, she’s smart strong, self confident and beautiful as well a fierce swordswoman.
SC: What are you currently working on now? Anything you can give the readers a sneak peak of?

EL: Book Four Cain, the Quest just finished edit, he is a character that we met in book three The Dark Prince. I had to build a whole new world around him, it’s another wild ride.

SC: What was the best advice you ever got as a writer, and who gave it to you?

EL: Stick with it you’re good, by many writers along the way.

SC: Any writing habits?

EL: I write every day, you have to be disciplined.

SC: Have you ever based a character on yourself?

EL: I think every author/writer has parts of not only themselves but their history and experiences in their work it what brings things to life.

SC: What would you like to achieve as an author?

EL: To have my work read and for people to enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.

SC: What are you currently reading?

EL: Not much time to read, but I not long ago finished the new Cussler book he’s a great author for me to read to get away from the fantasy world I build.

SC: What message would you like readers to walk away with after reading your books?

EL: Wow that was fun I can’t wait for the next one to come out!!!

SC: Where can readers go to find more info about you and your books?

EL: They are available on Amazon, Kindle, apple, barnes and noble or on my website I’m also on facebook and twitter.
