Interview with Diane David, Author of My Lady

29 May 2024

What’s the story behind the story? What inspired you to write My Lady?

I was just an avid reader of romance who was inspired by the many great authors that I read. I would dream of characters and their stories, and I knew I had to write about them.

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

I imagine a sweeping soundtrack by James Horner of Braveheart, Titanic, and Apollo 13 fame. Sadly, though, he has passed away, but that’s what I would love–the type of dramatic music that grabs your heart and gives you all the feels.

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

My favorite genres to read and write are all historical romances. I especially love medieval romances along with old west and Native American romances.

What books are on your TBR pile right now?

“The Saxon Lord’s Unwanted Bride” by Emily Royal, and I’m re-reading some of my favorite Johanna Lindsey and Judith McNaught novels. They always inspire me.

What scene in your book was your favorite to write?

Without giving anything away, I love the scene where the antagonist Moira finally gets her due. It’s very satisfying.

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

I read my writing back to myself out loud to hear how it sounds and to get the right cadence. There is a flow to romance and the cadence is everything.

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

I just like to live and let live, and family is the most important thing to me.

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

I would love for my readers to get to the end of the book and be sad that the story is over. I love when I read a book like that and miss the characters once the story has ended. I would love for my readers to want more.
