Meet T.L. Andersen!

1. When did you start writing?
I’ve been writing since I could figure out that I could put words together to make a story. My Mom has stories I’ve written since kindergarten.
2. What’s harder to write, a beginning or an end?
It’s harder for me to write the beginning. I can always tie up everything in a neat little bow. I have a hard time getting a story off the ground that catches a reader’s attention.
3. What is the best passage you have ever written?
From The Sorceress of Savon.
“Do not tell me my fate, my lady. My fate belongs to me. It is my fate. And my fate intertwined with yours when our son was conceived in your womb. Our fate is joined together and will wrap around our son’s when he is born. And my fate is not to be king. It is to love you. Where you go, I will be. You are all I have wanted all my life. Now that I have you I will not let you go.”
4. What is your advice to newbie authors?
Never give up. Even when it seems pointless and it seems all you are doing is spinning your wheels, never stop believing in yourself. This has been the most amazing journey and I can honestly say I have loved every little bit of it.
5. Who is your favorite character?
Without a doubt it is Sloan O’Riley. He is the most dimensional, most intriguing character I’ve written. He is the character that lives in my head. His original model was my grandfather so I think a little piece of my grandpa lives in him.
Keep an eye out for Andersen’s Black Irish, a romance you’ll definitely want to snag a copy of. It’s due out in May, its two sequels coming out in August and November.
Come back next week to see who my next interview will be with! It’s someone I can’t wait for you to meet! She’s one of my favorite ladies and I know you’re gonna love her too!
