Meet An Author!

Author L. A. Fiore

Writing Questions:

Why do you think readers are drawn to what you write?

I try to make my stories a journey, like a movie that you read. My goal is to immerse the reader in the story, tugging on all of their emotions, and make them feel as if they’re living the story too.

Why do you write?

I think in plot lines and characters; I’ve always done that, even when I was a kid. I’m also someone who doesn’t particularly like reality. I find if I listen to the news, it’s rather depressing. Writing, I get to create my own reality and I really enjoy the worlds I create because despite all the ups and downs, there’s always a happy ending and I’m a sucker for the happy ending.

Who inspires you?

May sound odd, but the characters do. Each takes on a life of their own and as their stories unfold, the more inspired I get.

Was being an author something you’ve always wanted to do?

Always. My dream has always been to roll out of bed, get the family off, and then grab a cup of coffee and head to my office to spend the day writing. The fact that I actually make a living from my dream is incredible.

Favorite place to write?

My office because I’ve filled it with mementos that represent the characters in my books…a painter’s palette clock for Logan and Lark, a cake plate with fake fancy cupcakes for Avery, typewriters for Ember, Mia’s crystal-encrusted platform pumps, etc.

What is your favorite book you’ve written? Why?

His Light in the Dark because I adore Cole Campbell. His life is hard and yet under his remote exterior is a heart of gold. And Mia complements him perfectly because she’s sweet and wears her heart on her sleeve, but more she sees Cole as he is and not how he perceives himself.

What elements around you, inspire you?

Music. Many writers write to music because music inspires. There are songs that make you want to dance and songs that make you want to cry. Tapping into the emotion stirred by music, at least for me, helps me really set the tone of a scene.

How often do you publish?

I try to publish three books a year.
