Laurann Dohner Interview Intro
Hello Book Monsters and Literal Addicts! Book Monster Reviews and LITERAL ADDICTION are very excited to welcome author Laurann Dohner to our sites today.
Laurann has a great bio on her website that we borrowed and pasted below so you can get to know her better….
I'm a full time home 'supervisor' which is a nice word for saying I'm a housewife. I'm happily married, I met my dream guy 21 years ago, and we have 4 children. I live in Southern California and I can't function without iced coffee. I believe in romance, I've always been a daydreamer, and I'm a HUGE fan of books - always have been.
No, I didn't know that I always wanted to write. I inhaled books as a child. I read entire series (Pippi Longstocking, Nancy Drew and The Hardy Boys, Trixie Beldon, The Borrowers, etc) in a matter of days. By the time I turned nine years old I had an adult library card where I visited often. I moved on to John Saul, Stephen King, Richard Laymon, Agatha Christie, and then found romance. I got hooked. I wrote poetry in my teens and then moved on to short stories. I started to write my first book after I read a real bomb of one that ticked me off with really horrible characters and a plot that was shabby at best. I thought...I could do better!
I wrote my first book which will probably never see the light of day in the early 90's. I wrote a series of books from it. I'm a series fan! I kept writing for fun, wrote MANY books and then in 2009 I decided to attempt to get published. I wrote my first Sci Fi romance and Ral's Woman came to be. I submitted it and with a little tweaking, Ellorascave sent me an acceptance letter. It was kind of a 'Cinderella' experience for me. It's been a terrific ride so far and I'm really happy. It's a dream come true.
Laurann is the creator of some amazing paranormal, fantasy/sci fi and erotic romance series; CYBORG SEDUCTION, ZORN WARRIORS, RIDING THE RAINES, MATING HEAT and NEW SPECIES. In case you are not yet familiar with all the series, we've posted them below, along with the synopses of a few books from each series.
