Interview with MK Lorber, Author of The Curse of a Faeblood

20 Apr 2022

What’s the story behind the story? What inspired you to write The Curse of a Faeblood?

I cut my teeth on Romance novels in the 90s. This story is my ode to those bigger than life lovable heroes. When they fall, they fall hard. As a reader, I want front row seats when they crash land.

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

ROMANCE! Any and all sub-genres. For fiction, it’s the only genre I intend to write.

What books are on your TBR pile right now?

The Elf Tangent (Lindsey Buroker), Children of the Fallen Gods (Carissa Broadbent), Tinderbox (Rachel Grant), and Fire Heart (Emma Hamm) are at the top right now.

What scene in your book was your favorite to write?

There’s a scene where Gavyn demands (asks in his own gruff way) for Ember to dance with him. It occurs early in the romance, but it’s the moment where Gavyn metaphorically stumbles. Not because of her beauty, nor their chemistry. Her perception trips him up. For a glimmer of a moment, he sees himself through her eyes.

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

I write with a cat on my desk, pups at my feet, and the Game of Thrones soundtrack in my headphones.

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

‘Catch ‘em being good.’ I coach youth basketball and lacrosse, and I keep a piece of paper in my pocket with this saying written on it. It’s been four years since I stumbled across this ideology, and the more I use it on the field, the more I use it in everyday life. ‘Catch ‘em being good’ works for adults, too. We are the hardest on ourselves and those in our sphere of influence, so I look for opportunities to celebrate the small, positive moments.

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

I enjoy big messy families — I read them, write them. Often, we must forge those bonds from circumstance, not blood. And sometimes, they are harder won but stronger for it.
