Interview with Sarah Hualde, Author of A Raven Remix

30 Nov 2022

What’s the story behind the story? What inspired you to write A Raven Remix?

I love music and paranormal cozies. While talking plots out with my kids, this book, and the entire series, unfolded. Why not write a cozy where songs from the 60s to the 2000’s are clues? It sounded like fun. So, I took on the Paranormal Penny Mystery Series.

If you had to pick theme songs for the main characters of A Raven Remix, what would they be?

Trouble ls a Friend by Lenka is Penny’s theme. 100% In fact, if I get blocked I play it on repeat until the story comes to me.

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

I love mysteries and paranormal suspense. So I’ve mixed them up and write paranormal cozies. One day I may tackle Sci-Fi… maybe.

What books are on your TBR pile right now?

My TBR pile is almost as large as my To Be Written pile. Right now, it’s An Affair to Dismember, Swamp Spirits, Southern Spirits, and Medium Over Easy. And that’s just the fiction books.

What scene in your book was your favorite to write?

I love whenever the Raven pops up in my mysteries. That means the fun is about to begin. Then again, any scene with the Whovian T.C. is enjoyable to write.

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

I love coffee mugs and sharpies. When I’m plotting I’ll often buy a fresh set of Sharpies and recently have started designing coffee mugs to match my work in progress. All in the name of inspiration.

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

If I had a motto it would be Hang on tight. The journey is dangerous but the destination is worth it.
