As part of our countdown to Readers & ‘ritas 2018, our Meet the Author interviews help you get to know the authors joining us in Texas on November 9-11. Read on to get acquainted with #1 New York Times bestselling author Christine Feehan, and purchase your ticket to meet her in person at Readers & ‘ritas!
Pitch us your newest book in one sentence.
LEOPARD’S RUN is an erotic shapeshifter, action/adventure thriller.
If you could meet one of your characters in real life, who would you choose and what would you do?
It would be Ivory from DARK SLAYER. I would love to ask her where she gets her strength and discuss her love of animals. I would talk to her about the beautiful home she made from nothing. She is strong in so many ways, which intrigues me. I think she’d be interesting to meet in person.
What gets your creative juices flowing when you’re brainstorming a new story?
Though anything might encourage my creativity, I think that just sitting still, thinking about the character, and getting to know their past, their conflict, and the way they think and feel inspires me the most. Once I know the character, I find that the story starts to unfold.
Which part of Readers & ‘ritas are you most excited about?
Meeting readers. Being an author can be a pretty solitary thing, so it’s always nice to get out and interact with other book lovers. It’s an opportunity for me to show my appreciation and let the readers know how important they are to me.
We’re all romantics here, so we need to know—what is your all-time favorite love story?
My all-time favorite romance happens to be my parents, Mark and Nancy. They were married for 62 years. I loved watching them dance together in the living room, holding hands and so much laughter. And though I miss them dearly, their love story continues to influence me and inspire me. Not a book, but definitely a love story.
