Interview with Taryn East, Author of The Conjunction

16 Nov 2022

What’s the story behind the story? What inspired you to write The Conjunction?

I had a vision of a character that was a magical thief, using magic to help pull off heists to “reclaim” magical artifacts. Then I imagined her falling in love with a necromancer and having a funny reaction of: ewww, icky! Can’t trust them to leave you with all your limbs intact!

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

I’m pretty eclectic, but I do prefer anything SF/F.

What books are on your TBR pile right now?

Currently reading Travis Bagwell’s Armageddon, and top of TBR is the last book in Annette Marie’s Guild Codex Unveiled series.

What scene in your book was your favorite to write?

Hope half-drugged up on an operating table with the necromancer working on her. Trying to chat him up while drooling 😀

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

I hand write my first draft in long-hand. It really helps me get into Flow the best.

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

Not really. Maybe “life’s too short to drink bad coffee” ? 😀
