Interview with Michelle Windsor, author of Tempting Tricks

11 Feb 2019

What can you tell us about your new release Tempting Tricks?

It’s a little darker than people might know me for. I really love that I went in a different direction with this one, and I think that people will love Trick’s and Belle’s journey.

What or who inspired you to become an author?

I’ve always loved writing and storytelling. I started writing in my teens, but never really had the courage to pursue writing as a career. It wasn’t until I discovered and fell in love with Coleen Hoover’s words and eventually learned of her start in the book world that I realized that it might be a possibility for me to do the same. She was also a mom, and a wife and even though it was hard, one day she sat down and started writing…That inspired me.

What’s on your top 5 list for the best books you’ve ever read?

1.     Ride the Wind by Lucia St.Clair Robson.

2.     Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austin.

3.     It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover.

4.     The Green Mile by Stephen King.

5.     Roots by Alex Haley.

Say you’re the host of a literary talk show. Who would be your first guest? What would you want to ask?

Stephen King, because he’s like a God to most writers. My first, (because I would ask a ton), question would be: When was the first time you truly felt like an ‘author’ and not just someone writing down a bunch of words?

What’s your favorite thing about writing?

I love world building and having the characters in my head come alive on paper. Telling their story and sharing it with the world is my very favorite thing.

What is a typical day like for you?

I usually start the day with some coffee, and sending my boys off to school. Then I spend a few hours doing social media and all bookish things. I’ll take a break mid-day, then try and write for about 3-4 hours. I spend the late afternoon and early evening with my family. After everyone is settled again for the night, I usually do a little more social media and write for another hour or two. I stay busy!

What scene in Tempting Tricks was your favorite to write?

I always love starting a book, and with this book in particular, the first chapter was the darkest I’ve ever written.  It definitely sets the tone for the whole book. It was really fun to immerse myself into the darkness of this character’s soul.

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

I am a big believer in kindness. I will never do anything to anyone, that I don’t want to happen to myself, or my loved ones.
