Recently i was lucky enough to pose 5 questions to the lovely award winning author Beth Williamson. If you read my blog you might remember I have read and reviewed several of her books. She writes under the names Beth Williamson and Emma Lang. Read below to find out what i learned.
Beth Williamson, who also writes as Emma Lang, is an award-winning, bestselling author of both historical and contemporary romances. Her books range from sensual to scorching hot. She is a Career Achievement Award Nominee in Erotic Romance by Romantic Times Magazine, in both 2009 and 2010.
Questions with Beth Williamson
1. What is the one thing you would want people who have never read your books to know about you and your books?
I'd like them to expect to hold my hand and go on a journey with me, filled with emotions, highs and lows, humor, some smexy times, and eventually, a happy ever after that will make them sigh. I also have an obsession with cowboys, but it's mostly a secret thing. ;)
2. How do you keep track of all your characters comings and goings. Especially when it's a series? Do you keep a notebook a bulletin board?
I keep a file for each series and add to it every time I write a book. Things like their birthday, how old they are, eye color, hair color, even nipple color (hey that can be important). I refer to it all the time as I write the books in the series.
3. What do you like to read yourself when you’re not writing? Favorite genre and author? Do you have a favorite book?
I read all kinds of books and genres. My favorite is historical romance of any timeframe (especially the old west – surprise!). My favorite book – that’s a toss up between ONLY HIS by Elizabeth Lowell or THE STAND by Stephen King.
4. Books into movies? Which one of your books would you like to see made into a movie? Who would play the leads?
I play this game all the time. I would love to see THE BOUNTY, my first Malloy series book, made into a movie. Tyler and Nicky – my all-time favorite couple. I see David Boreanaz playing Tyler – big with dark hair and piercing eyes, a hardass. Yessss! For Nicky, the actress has to be tall and kick-ass and with reddish brown hair – I like Emma Stone. She’s got the moxie to pull it off.
Modokker: I love that you have this all planned out in your head. Perhaps one day it will happen!
5. What's up next for you? Books? appearances??
Up next will be CIRCLE EIGHT: CALEB (release date coming soon, but early 2013), ENDLESS HEART in print in April, 2013. I have two other books I can’t announce yet for 2013 (sorry they’re sekrit!). I'll be at Authors After Dark in New Orleans in August and Lora Leigh's Reader Appreciation weekend (RAW) in September.
Modokker: Looks like lots of great stuff from you in 2013! I would love to go to RAW sometime.
