Interview with W.J. Saunders, Author of City of Sin
09 Feb 2021
What can you tell us about your new release, City of Sin?
It’s a fast-paced, second chance, enemies to lover’s romance set in Las Vegas. The entire story is set to a countdown of seven days and is told mostly at night. It centers around the two main characters of a contract killer and a female crime boss. It was interesting to write a story where neither of the main characters are particularly innocent and to make you feel a connection to them regardless.
What books are on your nightstand?
It’s a mixture, I’ve got Ivy Asher’s The Bone Witch, Callie Hart’s Fracture and also The Book Thief because I’ve been meaning to read it for ages. Recently I’ve just finished Neil Gaiman’s Good Omens.
What advice would you give to your teenage self?
To be more confident, believe in yourself more, care less what others are doing and to blaze your own trail.
What makes your world go around? Why does it bring you joy?
You mean other than my husband, children and reading? Lol, the answer is Lego, expert level. I love building, it soothes my brain, which is usually so full of writing, characters and plots, I find it hard to unplug. Lego is fun and you can create awesome buildings. At the moment I’m amusing myself and my readers by re-creating the characters and buildings from my supernatural book series, in Lego.
What scene in City of Sin was your favorite to write?
That’s a tough one, I don’t think I have a particular favorite scene. I like them all because it’s quite different from the other books I’ve written. Although I did enjoy the interaction when my two main characters meet for the first time and realize who the other really is.
