Interview with Darlene Kuncytes - by Aoife Marie Sheridan

 Question: What have you published recently?

 My first Novella:   A Vampire’s Saving Embrace.  This is book one of a series – but completely stands on its own.  It is a Romance with the paranormal thrown in. 

 I am currently working on book two - Luke and Kat’s story - (because people have threatened me if I didn’t do them next!! LOL)   But I take that as such a compliment - that they have fallen in love with them too!



Question: How, and when, did you decide to become a writer? 

I think I came out of the womb telling stories! Lol.  I have always loved books.  On rainy days my mom and I would make “books” by drawing pictures and I would make up the stories.  In high school I would write.  I started a historical romance in high school that I have yet to finish.  Lol. Perhaps one day!


Question: Where can we find your published writing?

Amazon:  The Createspace bookstore.    It is also now available in Paperback too, which is exciting!

Question: What is a typical day like for you as a writer?

Well, during the week I work a full-time job, come home and write for a bit.  The weekends are usually spent brainstorming or daydreaming you could say about where I want the story to go.

Question: What are your favorite characters that you have created? Tell us about them

That is such a hard question to answer.  I really love them all.  They come from your mind and your heart so they are so personal to you.  I love Desmond and Abby because of their strength and selflessness.  And I love Luke and Kat, because of their stubbornness and smart ass ways.  I don’t think I could pick just one.  They each have a small part of me in them.  It would be like asking you to pick a favorite child. J

Question: do you find you “mentally edit” other writers’ works as you read them? Does doing this help you or bother you?

Ok. I am laughing my butt off now.  I have ALWAYS done that to a point.  I think it’s because everyone has their own style of writing, so when you see something you think to yourself – oh, I would have put it like this.  It helps to a point, but I don’t think it affects your style at all.  You write your own way.

Question: What music do you listen to, while writing?

Well, I love Maroon Five, or classical, or I will just turn on a pop station for a bit.  My favorite is just to go sit outside on my deck, with only the sounds of the birds and neighbors cutting their grass or doing whatever around me.  I love that peace.   Just give me my coffee and the fresh air, and I am all good.


Question: What do you eat while writing?

I usually don’t eat when I’m writing.  If I am on a roll, I will actually forget to eat! lol! 


Five for Fun:

What is your favourite non-alcoholic drink?    Coffee – Coffee, and more coffee!!


What is your favourite cartoon character?

That’s a hard one – but I would have to say Marvin the Martian.  That guy rocks! I mean, he just never gives up trying to blow up the Earth! You have got to admire him! lol

What is your favourite movie of all time?

Oh, wow.  There are just so many, but I would have to say Gone with the Wind or Wuthering Heights.

What do you like to do for fun or just to relax?

Swim, write obviously, read, and spend time with my dogs and friends. I love to cook and have people over.

Question: Where can we find you on the web?

Amazon, Facebook, Goodreads where I have a page.   A Vampire’s Saving Embrace has a page on facebook so feel free to come on and like it!
