Featured Friday! DM Wolfenden
Author DM Wolfenden has always had a love of the darkside. Vampires, Zombies, Werewolves and serial killers. She grew up watching Hammer house of horrors and reading Stephen King books.
She works offshore as a radio operator and on her time off loves to spend time with her family, reading and writing.
What’s your favourite part of the lifestyle of an Author?
Pushing myself to finish something I never thought I could possibly do.
What made you start writing?
I’ve had little stories running around my head since I was a child but never had the confidence to actually write, then one night I was bore, and annoyed at someone so decided to write a little story and kill them off.
Is there an Author that you consider your inspiration?
Stephen King is my favourite author.
What’s your number one tip for an aspiring Author?
Believe in yourself, and remember, when you think you are finished and on your final draft, do over it again.
What type of book do you like to read and does this differ from the genre that you prefer to write?
I mainly read horror, but I am spreading out more with the amount of talented Indie’s there is about.
Which one of your characters would you most like to spend time with?
Carly, she knows how to get what’s right and bring justice for her family.
Which book do you consider a must-read?
What’s been the hardest edit that you’ve had to make? Why did you want to keep the material in?
In my whip I wrote a character who turned out to be a more weird and strange than I had intended and that didn’t fit the book, so I put it on hold and gave him his own short story.
If you could pick an Author to write your biography, who would it be?
Stephen King or Dean Koontz
We all know the phrase “the book is always better than the film.” Which film would you like to see remade as a book?
Any one of the Diane Falcon mysteries by Beverly Connor
Can you sum up your life story in ten words or less?
Rough childhood, tougher marriage, loving mother, happy with what I have (is 11 okay?) [PD – I’ll allow it]
What’s exciting you about your next project?
Winters Day is a totally new genre for me, a chick-lit It still has a little dark elements but I’ve tried to bring a lot of humour into the story.
And finally, you have one quote to be remembered by, what is it?
You can’t look at life through rose coloured glasses, reality it was worse than any horror book.
