Featured Interview With Margaret Marr
Tell us a little about yourself. Where were you raised? Where do you live now?
I grew up in the mountains of Western North Carolina and I still live there with my dog. Digger is my only pet unless you count the blue-tailed lizard that crawls along my windowsill and a mouse that eats all of the dry dog food much to Digger’s dismay.
By day I work as an environmental specialist, which is just a fancy word for housekeeper, at the local nursing home. By night I write spooky paranormal books with a hint of romance, a pinch of suspense, and a whole cup of thrills.
I’ve written over 15 books, which are available on Amazon with Kindle Unlimited or $3.99 to buy.
My hobbies include hiking, crocheting, diamond painting, adult coloring, and walking for my health. To date, I’ve lost 95 pounds!
At what age did you realize your fascination with books? When did you start writing?
I discovered the magic of books in first grade. I was thrilled when I learned how to read all about Dick and Jane and Spot! I learned I could escape into a book and spend hours in another place and time.
I started writing over 25 years ago. I was a stay-at-home mom and looking for something to fill up the hours besides watching soap operas.
Who are your favorite authors to read? What is your favorite genre to read. Who Inspires you in your writings?
My favorite author is Dean Koontz. He has such a way with words that blows me away. His writing is descriptive and profound. I also enjoy Amanda Stevens who can cause chills to go down my spine with her words. My inspiration comes from people who read my books and let me know how much they enjoy them.
Tell us a little about your latest book?
BANSHEE is my latest book, and is the second book in the Hayton County Supernatural Series for young adults. It took me a year or more to write it in between working my day job and dealing with life. Below is about my book:
After rescuing Bradford Phillips from the facility hidden deep in the mountains of Hayton County, the teenagers draw back and recoup. Abe Abernathy takes a job. Mandy Jensen has second thoughts about Abe and is still determined to rescue her mother with or without help. Bradford prefers to remain a loner. Simon Rogers is stalked by a screaming woman that visits him late at night.
Plans for another rescue operation is put on hold as the teenagers attempt to figure out what the banshee wants with Simon—and what she’s warning him about. Ghosts walk the streets of Hayton County adding to the pandemonium. A demon hangs in the shadows waiting for an opportunity to cause chaos that might just end in disaster for Mandy and her friends.
