I am a book addict...and proud of it is pleased to have Muffi Beyer with us today.
 
 


Are you a plotter or a pantser, or a hybrid?
First of all, what’s a pantser? It sounds  like someone who runs around pulling people’s pants down and then running away. The other word “plotter” seems to include the word “plot” – if that’s the case then, I vote yes. Having a plot is a good thing. In terms of whether or not I’m a hybrid all I can tell you is I wish I drove one, but damn, it’s expensive to be green.

In your opinion, what makes a great hero?
 A good hero is the man you’d want to wake up to and still want to have sex with even if he had morning breath and a bad case bedhead. A good heroine is someone who you tell your secrets to over a cheap bottle of wine, and then could count on to kick the ass of everyone who was ever mean to you.

 
Do you prefer strong women for heroines, or the ‘damsel in distress’ type?
Really? If a woman doesn’t choose to fight for what she believes in then she should go back to costume dramas and have a case of the vapors.
 
What book are you currently reading?
Well, I’m reading seven books right now to be honest. 1. I’m loving, adoring an amazing zombie love story, Warm Bodies by Isaac Marlon, 2.Let it Snow: There Holiday Romances by John Green, Maureen Johnson, and Lauren Myracle, 3. Unsaid by Neil Abramson – a kind of Our Town with a vet, two horses, three dogs, a husband, an autistic boy and his mother, 4. A Silent Run by Barbara Freethy, and 5. Perks of Being a Wallflower, by Stephen Chbosky, 6. A quite steamy, naughty, Breaking Free by Anya Richards, and then 7. a Not-Very-Good-Book-That-Will-Remain- Nameless for a screenplay I’m being hired to write. So many good books not enough time.

Do you have anything in common with your characters?
 Ahh… pleading the fifth on that one. But let’s just say I’M NOT CRAZY LIKE MY LEADING CHARACTER RACHEL!!!!!!!

 
What item, or items, is absolutely necessary to your writing mojo?
 A computer, gallons of caffine, my Italian Greyhound, and oh yeah… life.
 
Do you have any rituals for writing or special locations that you prefer to inhabit when you’re writing?
Well, the shower is a great place to write even if it’s not great for computers. There’s nothing like being nude and soaping up to get the creative juices flowing.
 
Right now, what items are on your desk that you’d be embarrassed to admit to?
 I don’t have a desk, thank God. I think the rest of this interview is embarrassing enough.


Blurb:


“Exile is a deeply romantic psychological thriller that will take you on a roller coaster exploration of grief, logic, and the transcendental nature of love…”
*Anya Richards, best selling author
Reeling from the loss of her son and her ex’s indifference, Rachel a successful film director, heads to Ireland to shoot her next project. Once there, she’s plagued with vivid dreams and a gnawing sense of déjà vu. But Rachel’s tough exterior really begins to crumble when she spots a statue in the town square and is shocked to realize it’s the exact replica of the man who has haunted her dreams for months—a handsome stranger for whom she feels a deep and mysterious attraction…
Will Rachel choose love even at the expense of her own sanity? Or is her love for the man of her dreams more real than anything here on earth…?
