Author Interview: Bella Forrest, author of A Shade of Vampire

Today we have an interview with Bella Forrest. Bella's talking about her book A Shade of Vampire! Check out the synopsis:

On the evening of Sofia Claremont's seventeenth birthday, she is sucked into a nightmare from which she cannot wake.

A quiet evening walk along a beach brings her face to face with a dangerous pale creature that craves much more than her blood.

She is kidnapped to an island where the sun is eternally forbidden to shine.

An island uncharted by any map and ruled by the most powerful vampire coven on the planet. She wakes here as a slave, a captive in chains.

Sofia's life takes a thrilling and terrifying turn when she is the one selected out of hundreds of girls to join the harem of Derek Novak, the dark royal Prince.

Despite his addiction to power and obsessive thirst for her blood, Sofia soon realizes that the safest place on the island is within his quarters, and she must do all within her power to win him over if she is to survive even one more night.

Will she succeed? ...or is she destined to the same fate that all other girls have met at the hands of the Novaks?

Tell us a little about yourself and how you became a writer.

I've always had an active imagination. My favorite subject at school was creative writing and I wrote a lot of poetry in my spare time. From quite a young age, I felt the urge to express my ideas in words. So I have pretty much always been writing. Although it was only recently, on December 14th (2012), that my debut novel, A Shade of Vampire, was published.

How did you come up with the idea for A Shade of Vampire?

I'm not really sure where the original inspiration came from. The idea just sort of popped into my head one day and the characters and storyline developed organically from there.

What were some of the challenges you faced while writing A Shade of Vampire?

The main challenge for me in writing is always trying to organize my ideas for the story outline. I find this quite frustrating at times because I have quite a hyperactive mind, and it can be very difficult to order my thoughts.

What is your favorite YA read of 2012?

Oh, I'm afraid I really don't have a favorite!

What is your favorite line from A Shade of Vampire and why?

Because I don’t believe that you are a slave to what you’ve become. I don’t believe that you simply can’t.
