Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
Two Sharpe is a combined effort between father and daughter. Amanda became a widow at 24 years old, due to a drunk driver. She felt the need and urge to write about her and her husband’s story in a book title Stolen. Once her father, Scott, read this work, he too was inspired and Two Sharpe was born. Kris was added into the mix to handle the behind the scenes things such as website, social media, book design, etc.
The team is currently working on the second book in the Charly Stevens series, as well as publishing a free interactive blog called Road Rage.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
Awakening is book one in the Charly Stevens series. It was completely inspired by Amanda’s tragic loss and how to begin to rebuild after such a life altering event.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
Scott and Amanda sort of tag team the books and then once they get to a place where they are comfortable, they submit for editing and publishing. It’s a very interesting system!
What authors, or books have influenced you?
What authors haven’t may be a better question. Everyone on the team is an avid reader from Stephen King to Nicholas Sparks to obscure series that most haven’t heard about!
What are you working on now?
Acceptance, which is book two in the Charly Stevens Series…let’s see where Charly’s special pup Lola can take us this time.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
We are still working on new methods, but Facebook plays the largest role currently as we can engage our followers and grab the eye of new followers. Next up would be Twitter.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Don’t stop! Don’t let someone knock down your idea or your dream…you can make something amazing if you just keep pushing.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
Don’t stop, keep going!
What are you reading now?
Amanda is reading a Nicholas Sparks novel, while Kris is on Armada by Ernest Cline and Scott…well Scott reads so quickly we can’t keep up with his current read!
What’s next for you as a writer?
Hopefully to get Acceptance out and ready by the end of this year and get working on Book 3. We also really want to see where Road Rage can take us…graphic novel maybe? Who knows!
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?
Amanda-it would have to be a mystery or murder mystery…James Patterson is my fav!
Scott-I can’t read a book more than once, so I would need my Kindle. Scratch that a notebook and pencil and I will write my own.
Kris-Harry Potter! (I know that’s 7) Potterverse can take you out of whatever world you are in and transport you into a fantastic land of magic and beasts!
