Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
My name is CD Gorri. I write Paranormal Fiction in Young Adult and Romance genres.
To me, the world of the paranormal is full of endless possibilities. As a writer, I can take advantage of that. I can introduce old ideas through new characters and situations. And hopefully, I can entertain you while trying to do just that!
All of my books are set in the same paranormal universe and mainly take place in my home state of New Jersey. Characters and creatures overlap, but each series can be read alone. I have over a dozen books available on Amazon, Barnes & Nobles, Kobo, Google Play, iTunes, and more!
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
The Dragon’s Valentine is a paranormal romance novella that was originally part of a boxed set called Claiming My Valentine. I extended the story to nearly twice its size and am happy to say I plan on continuing the tales of the 4 Falk Clan brothers in this sensual paranormal series.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I don’t know if it is unusual, but I need complete silence when I am writing.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
I am a huge reader! Love books, so I’d have to say everything I see, read, and hear is an influence. My favorite authors are to many to name, but here are some off the top of my head, Stephen King, J.K Rowling, George R.R. Martin, Dr. Seuss, Patricia Briggs, JR Rain, Nora Roberts, Susan Elizabeth Phillips, and so many more, including some truly fabulous indies like myself!
What are you working on now?
I am working on book 2 in the Falk Clan series, to be released as part of the 12 Magical Nights of Christmas anthology! It is called The Dragon’s Christmas Gift and it tells the story of Alexsander Falk and his true mate, Noelle Gifford.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
I am active on social media platforms like Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook almost daily.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Yes. Write all the things! Seriously, just keep writing, it is the only way to hone your craft.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
Make your own happiness in life, then you have no one to blame but yourself if you fail.
What are you reading now?
I am reading the latest Samantha Moon book by JR Rain.
What’s next for you as a writer?
I have 5 WIPs at the moment, so writing I guess! LOL
If you were going to be stranded on a desert island and allowed to take 3 or 4 books with you what books would you bring?
I’d take my kindle with a solar powered battery charger then I would have my entire library 😉
