Thank you so much for visiting by Bibliophilia, Please for my stop of the 2014 Debut Author Bash! Today, I'll be featuring P.A. Warren and her debut novel, Life After.
Kayla: What inspired you to write Life After? Did one of the characters pop into your head first or the idea for the story?
P.A. Warren: The idea came from, well, Death is hard, and people forget how hard it is for the survivors, and those dealing with survivor’s guilt. That was the premise for the book.
Kayla: What was the most difficult part of writing Life After?
P.A.:Dealing with Hadley’s depression.
Kayla: What is your favorite distraction when you’re writing?
Kayla: Which books or authors would you say have affected or inspired you the most?
P.A.:There are too many to name. I’ve always wanted to write, and one day I just decided to sit down and write.
Kayla: What are you currently reading?
P.A.:Nothing at the moment, I’m working on my newest story. My TBR pile is HUGE.
Kayla: Which upcoming novel are you most looking forward to reading?
P.A.:Tons! I’m really enjoying Lili St Germain’s MC novella series.
Kayla: Finally, do you have any upcoming projects of your own that we can look forward to?
P.A.:Yes! I Released Reluctant Storm my NA Paranormal in August 2014. I’m currently working on a New Adult Contemporary romance as well as two Young Adult Contemporary romances. They are both under wraps as of now though. I will hopefully be releasing blurbs soon.
P.A Warren currently lives in the fine state of North Carolina. She is an avid reader and blogger. P.A Warren first found a love of books while reading The Babysitter Little Sister series by Ann M. Martin and since then hasn’t looked back. Reading everything she could and would get her hands on. Befriending librarians was one of P.A Warren’s favorite things to do. She also has a huge love for Squirrels.
She now has a Kindle and has found gold in Indie Authors. It has been a lifelong dream of hers to write a book. So when she was finally able sit down and put words to paper she was thrilled, and has been writing non-stop since.
