Princess for the day...Margay Leah Justice & Sloane Wolf

Welcome to Margay!
Let's get all the inside stuff about her
 and Sloane Wolf
(and how did she get that title?)

How did you get from your day job to writing romance?  I actually started writing long before I ever had a ‘day job.’ I’ve been writing since I was old enough to hold a pencil.

What are your three favorite books of all time? Oh, that’s kind of a hard one. There are so many, but I’m going to go with some classics here. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte, and North and South by Elizabeth Gaskill.

Morning, afternoon, or evening person? I think I get more writing done at night lately, for some reason, so I’d have to say night person, in that sense.

Music--with or without? What kind? I love music but I don’t play it often when I’m writing. I just don’t think about it.

First or third POV? So far, I write mostly in third person, although I do have a couple of ideas for stories that I might do from the first person.

How's tricks? Do you juggle multiple projects? I always have a bunch of things going all the time. For instance, a lot of times when I’m online, I’m also reading or knitting while I wait for pages to load. I also have different writing projects going at the same time. I don’t know how I juggle it, I just do.

What's harder: beginning, middle, or the end? For me, the beginning is really hard. Getting that perfect opening line, first paragraph, etc. down is such a challenge and I can really stress out about it. Once I get it, I usually fly through the rest. Endings are hard too because I don’t want the stories to end!

Revisions: Love 'em or hate 'em? I actually kind of love them because I often come up with even better stuff in revisions. Plus, I get to spend more time with my characters, so it’s all good.

How did you come up with that title?  Best advice anybody every gave you? For my current book, Sloane Wolf, it was a play on the old ‘lone wolf’ which fits because the hero’s last name is Sloane.

Best advice someone gave me: Keep writing.

Fill in this blank: My ideal fictional hero would think me gorgeous no matter… How I view myself. In fact, he’d be able to get me to believe it myself – he’d make me feel beautiful.

What's your favorite dessert?  Oh, I have a lot, but I really love cheesecake.

What's your favorite type of hero/heroine and why? My favorite hero is strong, compassionate and understanding, and will go the extra mile for those he loves. My favorite heroine can take care of herself but knows when to accept help from others. Also, she is kind, compassionate, and knows when to admit she’s wrong.
