I am absolutely thrilled to have YA Paranormal Fantasy Author, Noree Cosper, as my guest today! Her new book, “A Prescription For Delirium” releases on December 1st. Learn more about Noree, her amazing new novel, and what led her to the amazing world of writing down the stories that fill her head.
Why did you become a writer? What (or who) inspired you to do what you do? I’ve always loved reading. I got my love of books from my mother. But in books I found worlds I could escape to that were far more interesting than everyday life. My mother always told me I had an active imagination. I guess that writing the stories that played out in my head just came as a natural progression.
What is the atmosphere like when you write – completely silent, or do
you listen to music? Usually, I really like to have music when I write. It helps inspire me. Though, if need be I can write without it.
What book are you reading right now? I just finished “Ghost Story” by Jim Butcher. Since this is NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) I am not starting anything new, since I need to be concentrating on writing. Though at the end, Jim Butcher’s new book come out so it will be my reward.
When you’re not writing, what do you do in your spare time? Reading, of course. I also love video games, and table top roleplaying.
Do you have any advice for aspiring authors? Read a lot. Keep writing, even if you feel your lowest. Also, look into the why of “writing advice/rules,” don’t just take them at face value. If you understand them, you will know how to use the tools effectively.
Can you share any details on what you might be working on next? Any exciting projects in the works? I am currently participating in NaNoWriMo. I’m using it to write the second book of the series which is titled “Omega Effect.”
What are your current novels, and where can we find them?
“A Prescription for Delirium” will be available through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Smashwords on December 1st, 2012.
A Prescription for Delirium
Ninety years ago, Gabriella di Luca promised to protect the family of her dying lover. She failed to keep that promise. She was too far away to stop the devil that murdered the eldest Van Helsing son. Years later, Gabby learns the devil has resurfaced. She arrives in Hampton, TX, determined to stop the devil before it can lay a bloody hand on the remaining three brothers.
However, madness is spreading through Hampton. She suspects the devil is using this madness to test a drug which has a side effect of demonic possession. Gabby rushes to end the source of the madness only to fall victim to it. For a woman cursed with eternal life, dying is no threat. However, Gabby must stop the devil’s plot or risk losing her most precious possession: her mind.
A Prescription for Delirium is released on December 1st, 2012.
Noree Cosper loves writing about magic in the modern world. While growing up in Texas she constantly searched for mystical elements in the mundane. She buried her nose in both fiction and books about Wicca, Religion, and Mythology. Everyday became an adventure as she joined a group of role-players, acting out her fantasies of vampires, demons, and monsters living in the world.
She embraced her nerdom wholeheartedly.
Noree grew, but never left her love for fantasy and horror. Her dreams pushed her and her hand itched to write the visions she saw. So, with her fingers on the keys, she did what her heart had been telling her to do since childhood. She wrote.
