Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I have written five novels with my latest being especially interesting to write.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
Blood of Bathory is the latest and I was inspired to take a famous story and add my own take on it.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I don’t think so. I find writing comes easiest when I am putting pen to paper rather than typing. Oddly enough it seems more primal to me…more instinctive for when I want to really connect with a story.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
Stephen King of course, but also J. K. Rowling, Ann Rice.
What are you working on now?
I have two competing ideas. One is a Vampire story…the other a murder mystery. Soon I will have to decide…leaning murder though.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
For me it’s Twitter because I love to communicate with words. But I am on Instagram too at blnorrisbooks.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Write, the rest is out of your control.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
Just do it.
What are you reading now?
Nothing at the moment. When I am priming ti start a new book, I don’t like other stories floating around in my head.
What’s next for you as a writer?
Gathering as many followers as I can to join me down the dark road of delightful nightmares.
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?
Interview With a Vampire by Ann Rice, Salem’s Lot by Stephen King and Blood of Bathory by me to see what I could have done better.
