Featured Interview With Chelsea Falin
Tell us a little about yourself. Where were you raised? Where do you live now?
My name is Chelsea. I was raised in Dade City, Florida. It’s a small town in west-central Florida about an hour drive outside of Tampa. I currently live in southern New Jersey. Yes, I have pets (and kids)! Three cats who are spoiled rotten. Our oldest is an 8-year-old black cat named Skits. Then we have brothers, Loki (a gray tabby) and Thor (an orange tabby) who are 4-years-old.
At what age did you realize your fascination with books? When did you start writing?
I have always loved reading and writing. I think I was in Kindergarten when I joined a young writer’s group at my elementary school. From the time I knew what an author was, I wanted to be one. In fact, I have some old “books” I wrote between the ages of five and ten. Thankfully, I’ve improved a lot since then!
Who are your favorite authors to read? What is your favorite genre to read. Who Inspires you in your writings?
I get a lot of inspiration from my own past and everyday experiences, as well as the stories I hear from those close to me. My favorite genre is generally fantasy, but I’m on a huge romance kick right now. In fantasy, I love AD Trosper, David Eddings, Robert Jordan, Terry Brooks, Raymond E. Feist, and Lindsey Buroker. For romance, I especially love Karah Quinney, Dennis Manor, and Sarah Storme.
Tell us a little about your latest book?
The last book I put out is a contemporary romance novella that utilizes the tropes friends to lovers, older brother’s best friend, and second chance at love. It’s only my second foray into romance, but I really found myself drawn into the story. It only took me eight days to write the rough draft because I was writing like a mad person. It also kicked off a romance writing binge. I already have another romance written and in the editing stage.
So, the romance novella I just put out is called “A Fresh Restart.” Walker has always been madly in love with Josette, but she had no idea. She leaves town to find bigger and better things, and Walker finds he can’t stand their small town without her. So, he leaves, too. Ten years later, in a twist of fate, both Walker and Josette return home within months of each other. This time around, the attraction is mutual… after a few bumps in the road, of course.
