Featured Interview With Henna Vale
Tell us a little about yourself. Where were you raised? Where do you live now?
I was born and raised in Finland and haven’t moved out yet, although I’d love to live in Ireland or Australia one day. My family is bilingual so English has always been my second language at home. I don’t have any pets as I’m allergic to many animals.
At what age did you realize your fascination with books? When did you start writing?
I have always loved reading ever since I learned to read at the age of six. I started writing short texts when I was maybe eight or nine, wrote my first novella at sixteen and a novel by the age of 20. I have writed ever since.
Who are your favorite authors to read? What is your favorite genre to read. Who Inspires you in your writings?
There’s so many… To name three who write in English I’d say Elle Kennedy, Mariana Zapata and Sally Thorne. I love to read HEA slow-burn romance that’s not too angsty and has strong, personal characters. So many that kind of books have influenced and inspired me in many ways.
Tell us a little about your latest book?
My latest published book is called Hidden Love and it took me about a year to write it. It’s a story about two friends, Vera and Ian, and the choices we must make to be happy. This book has two different storylines. One, the main one, is about friendship, roommates falling in love, and a fake relationship because I’m a sucker for those kind of stories myself. So that theme was inspired by the write-what-you-want-to-read-principle 🙂 Vera is a strong and independent woman trying to find her own way after she finishes her studies, and Ian is a bisexual who struggles with his identity.
The other storyline is about the house where Vera and Ian live and its history. It’s about an old lovestory from the 1940’s, and the historypart is actually real. I love history and happened to read about foreign POWs in Finland during the WWII and started to play with that idea. The war, however, is just a minor sideline in this book. This is a contemporary, light romance set in present day.
