After All this Time—What Do You REALLY Know About Me? by Stephanie Queen

crown It’s been almost a year since the Authors of Main Street began this blog and I introduced myself to you. Since you’re still out there after almost a year of nonsense blogs, I figured I should step-up our relationship to the next level and share more about the Queen behind Stephanie Queen on Main Street. Myren, Kitten and I have enjoyed being here with all the Main Street Authors and can’t wait for year two!

More Tid-Bits:Kittyglamour

First, I don’t wear a lot of pink—only splashes here and there. Second, my new cat Kitten is the one who wears all the pink. She’s too Purrfect.  Finally–and this is key–don’t listen to anything my chauffeur Myren says about me. Unless it’s good.

Ancient History:

When I was an undergrad and my creative writing professor told me I’d never win a Pulitzer—or some literary-type prize, I said to myself (but in retrospect, I realize I should have said it to her) so what? Who said I was ever planning to enter that contest? Writing stories is a kick and I can support the Queendom doing it!

My favorite thing about writing:

I love making things up. I love making up people and having them do whatever I want—it’s a Queen thing. But seriously, the best stories are when the people stop doing what you want and get a life of their own. The surprises knock me out! (Okay, not literally…I mean, I don’t actually lose consciousness.)

My writer food:

When I’m writing, my food tends to become very crunchy. And smoky. Kind of like charcoal. I’m on first name terms with the local firemen. Not a bad thing.

What inspires me to write?GunMuse

Do threats of foreclose on the castle’s mortgage count?

My characters:

I feel like I’m related to all my characters—like I’m their mother.  (That doesn’t sound quirky-crazy, does it? Oh, who cares—I’m the Queen after all!)

This doesn’t have to be a one-way conversation—please feel free to share a quirky tid-bit about yourself!

    That gun is pointed at my head! Please remove it!

    Characters? LOL Yes, we own them. Our little slaves, except they never obey me as they have their own minds. When people can’t tell if I’m talking about characters or real people -um, it’s a problem.

    Does anyone really strive to win a Pulitzer prize? I couldn’t be bothered worrying about such a thing! I’m not writing the life of Gandhi to make a political statement. I’m in the entertainment business. (Not that politics doesn’t get quite funny at times and usually worth watching just for it’s mystery and suspense, and of course there’s always lots of lusty romance. Hmm, maybe I should…)

    Cute and fun. I need this type of aggressive muse right now. I know what you mean by food tasting like charcoal when I write. Ask the hubby. Or better not. Why stir trouble.
