I would like to introduce New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author HP Mallory as my "Author of the Month" for the month of November. Here is the personal interview that I was blessed with.
Michelle: Tell us about yourself.
HP Mallory: Hi Everyone, I'm HP and I started my writing journey as a self-published author, back when Amazon and Barnes and Noble were just offering self-pubbing as an option. Since then, I've gone the traditional route of publishing but will always consider myself to be an indie at heart.
Michelle: Have you always known you wanted to be a writer? Did anything happen to push you in that direction?
HP Mallory: Yes, I have always wanted to be a writer, ever since I was a little girl. I always excelled in English and creative writing and finally made my dream a reality in 2010.
Michelle: I'm so glad that you decided to become an author. I love your books! As a whole which character has been your favorite “good guy” to write about? Who has been your favorite villain? Do you feel like there is a particular character you relate to the most?
HP Mallory: My favorite character to write is by far angel Bill from the Lily Harper series. He was a huge departure for me in terms of the characters I'm used to writing because he's pretty crude but I so enjoy trying to come up with the new hilarious situations for him. While I would say that I am in all of my characters to an extent because I created them, I definitely relate to Jolie the most.
Michelle: I love Jolie and cough, cough Sinjin! I look forward to getting to know Bill when I read the Lily Harper series. What book are you reading now? Are there any new authors that have grasped your interest?
HP Mallory: Sadly I'm not reading anything at the moment because I'm so busy trying to stick to my writing schedule! In the past, I've really enjoyed the Laurell K. Hamilton Anita Blake series and Charlaine Harris' Sookie series.
Michelle: I know the Sookie series very well. My best friend has read the entire series. I also featured Charlaine Harris on here before. Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers?
HP Mallory: I would just love to thank all of my readers for their loyalty! It can be very tough to be a writer and make a living at it and I really owe everything to my readers!
Thank you so much, HP, for taking the time to sit down with me. I feel blessed to be featuring you this month.
