Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I am a new author, and have recently published my first novella, STARPEOPLE. I am currently working on a second novel, NUNS IN SPACE. I write romance in a variety of subgenres––anything from paranormal to sci-fi. My goal is to create stories that are both steamy and humorous. I consider myself to be a funny person and I think this is evident in my style. I hope that I am successful in entertaining readers!
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
My latest book is my aforementioned debut novella, STARPEOPLE, which tells the story of a small ocean-side party town where some people are gifted with the ability to shapeshift into starfishes. I was inspired because I love marine life, and I believe the starfish is such a beautiful creature. I also love stories about shapeshifters, but I have never read a story about people who can turn into starfishes, so I decided I would write one myself!
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
Yes! It may sound strange but I love to write while naked. I find it to be such a liberating feeling and that it helps me rid myself of all my inhibitions. I believe that the human body is a beautiful thing and very inspiring. I am also an artist and I have made paintings by using my boobs. I don’t think this is something to be ashamed of. Bodies are beautiful!
What authors, or books have influenced you?
So many! Just to name a few authors I admire: Lisa Desrochers, K. Bromberg, Tracy St. John, Maya Banks, Madeline Sheehan … I could go on and on!
What are you working on now?
Right now I am working on a sci-fi/romance called NUNS IN SPACE, which chronicles the adventures of a futuristic flying convent in outer space.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
I do not currently have a personal website, but I do have a page on Goodreads! https://www.goodreads.com/author/show/7369000.Bertha_Screechbird
