Linda Bolton writes contemporary romance. She has just recently published her second book and I was interested in learning more about it.
What genre of book do you write?
Contemporary Romance mostly. I am dabbling in memoirs, a true life murder story, and some erotica.
Can you tell me a bit about your second book which was released on the 25th June.
In my first book, TAKE 2, you meet a character called Tristen Bane. My second book, Incantation, is Tristen’s story. He’s a magician in Las Vegas and he meets Christina, a reporter, that steals his heart. She’s worried her attraction to him is only a hypnotic spell and she fights him every step of the way.
How long did it take you to write?
It took about 11 months to complete. I don’t write full time so sometimes its hard to pin down a moment to write.
Where did you get your ideas from?
All around me. Since my stories are contemporary, everyone becomes an idea. Movie stars, entertainers, artists, my friends and co-workers…..everyone has a story.
Did you have to do much research?
Tristen Bane is framed for a famous magician so I spent hours watching dvd’s of him performing, learning his personality. I, also, research the locations quite a bit. Usually, I’ve been to a few locations in my books but I don’t want the reader to be able to tell which ones are all research and which I have actually been to. The research, to me, is the best part!
Can we expect more books from you?
Oh, yes. You meet an artist in Incantation, Ethan Hawk – he’s my third book. My goal is to have it out before Christmas or right after. I’m also working on a true life murder story. I hope to have that out in a year.
Describe a day in your life.
Well, I work 8-5 at an office, doing customer service. When I’m off, I try to work out, maybe write a bit and I might catch a movie.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
I love Marvel movies, any kind of movies actually, I love to read all kinds of books, I love to cook and I spend a lot of time with my granddaughter.
