Today I have the pleasure of having Sandra Edwards on my blog today as part of her Incredible Dreams Kindle 3 Giveaway tour. Sandra is an award-winning author of romance. She has eclectic tastes, penning tales in a variety of genres such as paranormal (mostly time travel and reincarnation), contemporary and suspense. She lives in the U.S. (west coast) with her husband, two kids, four dogs and one very temperamental feline. Sandra’s books often push the envelope and step outside the boundaries of conventional romance.

JET: Can you tell us about your most recent book, Vegas Baby?

 

Sandra: Vegas, Baby is the second book in the Soul Searchers series. It picks up where Broken Wings left off. While Broken Wings is, for the most part, Maggie and Tajan’s story, the second book is definitely Rio and Eddie’s story.

JET: What drew you to the paranormal and suspense genres?

Sandra: My muse’s writing tastes are as eclectic as my reading preference. Basically, I like to write in the same genres that I like to read.

JET: What’s been your most challenging hurdle on the road to publication?

Sandra: Getting traditional publishers to seriously consider my ‘outside the box’ stories.

JET: What was your favorite moment in the journey?

Sandra: Definitely fan mail. I love hearing from readers who’ve enjoyed a book of mine.

JET: Which authors had the most influence over you growing up?

Sandra: Rod Serling, Sidney Sheldon, Harold Robbins and Jackie Collins.

JET: When did you know you wanted to take the plunge into the writing world?

Sandra: I think it’s true for most writers that once you start writing, wanting to ‘take the plunge’ is a natural progression.

JET: What’s the craziest thing you’ve done in the name of book research? Most interesting fact you uncovered?

Sandra: Craziest thing I’ve ever done in the name of research? – I’ll never tell <grin>. Most interesting fact…? I’ve run across lots of interesting tidbits over the years but one of the most interesting things I’ve run across was in some records from the 1800s, a woman’s children were willed away from her in her husband’s will.

JET: Of all the novels and stories you’ve written – which one is your favorite? Why?

Sandra: That’s like choosing a favorite child. lol. I love them all.

JET: Any advice (from a writer’s standpoint) for the novices out there?

Sandra: Never give up the dream.
