Interview with C. A. Hollister, Author of Destiny Unbound

23 Jan 2024

What’s the story behind the story? What inspired you to write Destiny Unbound?

I’ve had this story circling in my head for a couple of years. After writing random scenes here and there, I sat down one day to put them together, and as they say, the rest is history. Looking back on how the story began, then how it finished, I am amazed at the journey both my characters and I went through together.

If you had to pick theme songs for the main characters of Destiny Unbound, what would they be?

“Sol” by Lys.

What’s your favorite genre to read? Is it the same as your favorite genre to write?

I read Fantasy and Paranormal Romance, mostly. I love to write stories that resonate on an emotional level with an added twist of the paranormal and fantasy elements.

What books are on your TBR pile right now?

The Acts series by N. T. Anderson.

What scene in your book was your favorite to write?

If I had to choose one, it would be the revelation of Darya’s true identity and what that means for the relationships she forged up to that point.

Do you have any quirky writing habits? (lucky mugs, cats on laps, etc.)

I like to listen to a particular playlist when I write certain scenes to help put me in the right head space.

Do you have a motto, quote, or philosophy you live by?

I am a very logical, yet at the same time, a highly emotional person. It’s a delicate balance to maintain, and I have to make sure I don’t let my head overshadow my heart and vice versa.

If you could choose one thing for readers to remember after reading your book, what would it be?

I want my readers to have journeyed the same path as my characters; to walk in their shoes and experience the profound nature of relationships, both the good and the bad.
