Interview with Xavier Neal, Author of Dark Ruler
27 Oct 2020
What can you tell us about your new release, Dark Ruler?
It is one of my favorites to date. I had so much fun writing it and building the world. I am a sucker for an alpha in a suit.
What or who inspired you to become an author?
I have loved to tell stories all of my life. I used to do it verbally as a kid for my friends before I learned to write and once I learned to write I just never stopped.
What’s on your top 5 list for the best books you’ve ever read?
That’s hard…These are definitely in my top 5. I Break Series Boxset by Kendall Ryan, Dray by Tess Oliver, Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion, Walking Disaster by Jamie McGuire and Lover at Last by J.R. Ward.
Say you’re the host of a literary talk show. Who would be your first guest? What would you want to ask?
Fun question, lol. I’d probably want Oprah to be my first guest and ask her about her choices/her magazine choice for “the book club” and what it would take to get more indie writers/less well-known writers featured.
What’s your favorite thing about writing?
Telling stories. I LOVE to tell them.
What is a typical day like for you?
Usually some version of coffee, writing (even if it’s just outlining), texting with my besties, and lots of laughs with my husband.
What scene from Dark Ruler was your favorite to write?
Favorite? Um…lol There’s a pretty intense kitchen scene I had a lot of fun with, haha.
Do you have a motto, quote, or philosophy you live by?
“Be The Change”, it’s the shortened version of “be the change you want to see in the world”. It’s how I approach most avenues in my life.
