Interview with Lisa Blackwood, author of In Deception’s Shadow

13 Feb 2018

What can you tell us about your new release, In Deception’s Shadow?

In Deception’s Shadow is an action-packed Epic Fantasy Romance series featuring strong heroines and noble heroes. Even though each installment wraps up the romance between the hero and heroine for that book, this is a true epic fantasy world filled with fantastical creatures, dark powers, and a continuing story arc from book to book as the main characters journey to find the Twelve Talismans lost to time and defeat the evil Priests of the Revealing Light.

What’s the last book you read?

I actually just started Blood for Stone by Logan Snyder. It’s a futuristic Urban Fantasy series set in the city-state of Meridia, where the citizens–a mix of Humans, Vampires, Gargoyles, and a bunch of other cool critters—find their fragile peace threatened when acts of violence rock the city.

What fictional literary world would you most like to visit?

I’d absolutely love to visit Middle-Earth, (Well, the parts without orc and evil overlords.)

What or who inspired you to become an author?

I can’t actually pinpoint the exact moment I decided to become an author. But I’ve been writing since I was thirteen. Actually, likely earlier than that, but I was thirteen when I first started drafting book one of In Deception’s Shadow. It’s changed a great deal since that time, but I guess I’ve always wanted to become an author. It’s something in my heart that won’t be denied.

What’s your favorite thing about writing?

I love creating worlds and unique characters with interesting powers and watching as their journeys and relationships unfold. And let’s admit it, sometimes the villains are just as much fun to write.

BAM. You’re a superhero. What’s your superpower?

Typing really fast?

What scene in In Deception’s Shadow was your favorite to write?

It’s always the next book, the next scene, the next character to be written into being.

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

I always get what I want in the end. If I work hard enough. LOL.
