Author Spotlight: Sandra Edwards

The Crazy Bookworm is thrilled to welcome back Sandra Edwards, who has stopped by The Crazy Bookworm blog a few times to share with us her latest projects. Enjoy!


Tell us 5 things about yourself


First, let me say thanks for having me back again. It’s always a pleasure. Now...5 things about me...I’m a Yankees fan. My favorite color is pink. I love rock-n-roll. I’m fascinated by reality TV. I love old black and white movies.




Describe yourself in 3 words

Control-freak. Honest (sometimes to a fault). Dependable.




If you could invite any 5 people(dead or alive, fact or fiction) to dinner, who would you invite?

My grandparents. Rod Serling. And probably a couple of my characters (which can change on a given day), right now I’d say Ava Valentine and Dexter Stone (from my upcoming book Staked).




What is a "day in the life" of Sandra Edwards like?

Honestly...? Very boring. lol. Sometimes I feel like I’m chained to a computer all day and half the night trying to get things done (promo, writing, socializing. lol)




Finish this sentence "I can't live without..."

...writing.




I've read 3 of your books: Incredible Dreams, Crazy for you and Broken Wings and have loved them all! They have such great and unique storylines. Where do you get your inspiration from?

I get inspiration from just about anything. I can hear a song and become inspired (Crazy For You), see something on TV or an intriguing photo with an unusual story and the seeds are planted (Incredible Dreams), and of course my own imagination (Broken Wings came from an old college project).




Do you have any writing must haves(i.e music, snacks, etc)

I have a bowl of “trail mix” (walnuts, Raisinets, and white chocolate chips) at my side at all times. I always need noise (aside from my hubby trying to talk to me about motors and car parts and such. lol) in the background. It can be the TV if I’m not doing anything to specific or creative. If I’m creating the actual story, I prefer my iPod.




If you could bring life to one of your book characters and spend the day with them, who would you chose and why? My pick is a toss up between Jack Baker or Roxanne Simon

It’s hard to choose just one of my characters; I find them all interesting. Yours are great choices, though. I’d love to chat with both of them. I could definitely spend a day with Roxanne Simon to hear her thoughts on life and what makes her tick. I’d also love to hear some of Jack’s stories about the 1940s.




Are any of your characters based on real-life people?

No. To date, all my characters were born solely from my imagination.




Aside from reading and writing what do you enjoy doing in your spare time?

I love watching movies and playing video games (mainly RPGs).




If you could go back into time and live in any era, where would you go?

I’ve always had a fascination with the 1940s. I’d go there.



Do you have any guilty pleasures? if so, do share :)

Junk food. lol




Are you working on anything now? Can you share a little?

I am working on two WIPs right now. The first is a paranormal romance I’ve titled Staked (the first book in the Time Brokers series). It’s a story about a time traveling bounty hunter. It’s already received kudos by finaling in and winning a few RWA-sponsored unpublished contests.


The second is a sweet contemporary romance titled Saving Katya. It’s a reunion story about a pair of Olympic skating champions who haven’t seen each other in eight years.




Crazy Quiz

Favourite food?

I do have a soft spot for lobster.

Favourite all time movie?

It’s a toss up between Casablanca and From Here to Eternity.

Favourite book as a child?

My favorite “childhood” book I read during my teen years called A Long Way Home From Troy by Donia W. Mills.

As a child, What did you want to be when you grew up?

Since about the age of 12, I’ve always wanted to be a writer.

If you could become any animal, what would you be?

Definitely a pampered cat.

Thank you so much, Sandra. It is always a pleasure!
