Hi! My name is Rebecca Royce. I am a romance author and I live in Austin, Texas, although I am a NYC girl originally. I write across many genres in romance, although I’d say mostly paranormal and science fiction, with an occasional dab into contemporary.
How long have you been writing or when did you start?
I have been published for a long time. I guess for twelve years now. Wow. That’s a lot longer than I realized. And I think I started writing to survive my middle son when he was a baby (he cried a lot!) and because I was such an avid reader.
Why paranormal/urban fantasy? What drew you to the genre?
I just love the otherness of it, the darkness, and with that the possibility.
What comes first for you — the plot or the characters — and why?
The characters create the plot for me. They sort of all happen all at once.
What’s your favorite type of paranormal creature and why?
Right now, it’s a vampire. That is what is fueling my muse.
Tell us about your heroine/hero. What inspired her/his quirks and struggles?
I just saw Maci as this complete picture. She was sitting alone in the library and I could see her from start to finish, completely.
Would you and your main character get along?
I think we would.
Which of the characters do you relate to the most and why?
I think probably Tanner. I think we’re similar.
What is a significant way your book has changed since the first draft?
Several things changed but I’d never tell you what. LOL
