An Interview with Amber Garza

DDS: Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I have been married for almost 14 years. I have a 13 year old son and a 10 year old daughter. I currently work from home – writing both my books and freelance for a local magazine. I also sing professionally.

DDS: What got you into writing?
I always wanted to write a book, but I never attempted to until my daughter was around 2. I then wrote three adult chic lit novels. The first one got a lot of attention from publishers and agents, but ultimately didn’t get picked up. After that, the chic lit genre sort of dissolved. I then started writing other books until I felt I had found my voice. That’s when I realized I really like to write YA.

DDS: Tell us about the “The Prowl Trilogy”
I like to say the Prowl Trilogy is Melody Carlson meets Ted Dekker. It’s about a normal teenager girl but it is definitely dark and at times pretty scary. It deals with issues of spiritual warfare and cutting, but at the heart of it all it’s an entertaining story with a little bit of romance and a lot of suspense.

DDS: What was the hardest part about writing this book? 
I think with Prowl the hardest thing was finding the time to work on it. I was working outside of the home at the time and that was a challenge.

DDS: Any unpublished work, written before ‘The Prowl Trilogy’ - that’s still somewhere in your drawers, that we should know about? 
Yes, I have 5 other novels that are unpublished – 1 romance, 3 chic lit books and 1 drama. They will most likely never see the light of day.

DDS: What are your writing pet peeves? 
Editing. I don’t really like to edit. I do it but it’s not my favorite part of the process for sure.

DDS: Who is your favourite character? (one of your own creation –published/unpublished) 
Sam from my new series. I just love him. He may take Jace’s place as my book boyfriend now.

DDS: Now time for some fun facts about you. If “The Prowl Trilogy” was to be turned into a movie – which Actor/Actress would you like to see playing the characters? 
Meghann Martin for Kenzie. Taylor Lautner for Isaac and Freddie Stroma for Tanner.

DDS: Who is your favourite author & which is your favourite book? I know it is beyond difficult, but you can name only one in each category!!
Alice Hoffman has been my favorite author for years. I just love her ability to write beautiful, haunting descriptions. Her writing is simply enchanting. Yikes. Favorite book is so hard because I have so many, but one of the only books I’ve ever re-read was “Time Travelers Wife”. I absolutely love the romance in that book. It’s beautiful and heart wrenching, so I’m going to go with that for now.

DDS: Do any of your favourite Authors influence your writing style? If yes, then who and how?
All the authors I read influence my writing style somehow. I always read through the eyes of a writer. I’m always trying to figure out what the author did right in books that I love and I take that knowledge into my writing.

DDS: What’s brewing? What can we expect from you next? 
Dazzle (Delenay’s Gift #1) releases in October 2012 and the sequel Shatter will release early 2013. The remaining two books in the series will release late 2013, early 2014.

DDS: Anything else you would like to say to your readers/fans? 
Just thanks again! You guys are the best!
