Interview with Terri A Wilson

What is something unique/quirky about you?
I like to eat my food in even servings. Like for instance, I would rather eat two cookies instead of one and I get twitchy if you serve me three. I also constantly rearrange my eggs in the carton to keep it balanced and I hate when there is an odd number of eggs.

Tell us something really interesting that's happened to you!
In 2009, I had my second daughter at home. My first delivery wasn’t bad, but my experience at the hospital was less than desired. The second delivery went so well, I would have another one in an NY Minute. I made a lousy pregnant woman. I didn’t really like being pregnant, but the actual delivery was awesome and I’d do it again.

What are some of your pet peeves?
I really hate people who are inflexible and refuse to see another point of view. I also can’t stand to be scared.

Where were you born/grew up at?
I was born in San Antonio Texas, but I spent most of my life in California. I’ve lived in North Carolina since 2006.

If you knew you'd die tomorrow, how would you spend your last day?
Holding my husband’s hand.

Who is your hero and why?
Buffy from Buffy the Vampire Slayer. She’s just flippin’ awesome.

What kind of world ruler would you be?
Not a very good one because I get bored easily, I hate dealing with conflict, and I expect people to do the right thing.

What are you passionate about these days?
Writing, coffee, and chocolate

What do you do to unwind and relax?
I love my bed. My room is dark and we try to keep it cold. For me, I love to just lie in my bed with the lights out. I don’t really sleep, but it’s quiet and I can think.

How to find time to write as a parent?
I have my laptop opened all the time and I use multiple devices that sync together.

Describe yourself in 5 words or less!
Sarcastic, Loyal, Foul-mouthed, Creative, Clever

When did you first consider yourself a writer?
I still don’t because it hasn’t sunk into my head yet. When I see my name on a book, I have a hard time connecting that it’s my name.

Do you have a favorite movie?
Yes, many. Practical Magic and Steele Magnolias being at the top

Which of your novels can you imagine made into a movie?
When I write, the story plays out in my head like a movie. So I guess all of them.

What literary pilgrimages have you gone on?
I went to Pompola, Spain for the running of the bulls and to visit the bar where Hemingway spent a lot of his time.

As a writer, what would you choose as your mascot/avatar/spirit animal?
Dragon because it’s fierce and beautiful at the same time.

What inspired you to write this book?
It may sound cliché, but there are a lot of characters who live in my head and they fight for dominance. Whoever wins the round when I start a new story gets their story told and then I just let them tell it.

What can we expect from you in the future?
I want to explore combining historical fiction with paranormal stories.

How did you come up with the concept and characters for the book?
They speak to me.

Where did you come up with the names in the story?
Top 100 Baby Names and the Coke bottles that come out in the summer.

What did you enjoy most about writing this book?

Tell us about your main characters- what makes them tick?
Skylar is the most confident person I know. Eliza needs acceptance and can cook. Cameron has to accept he’s different and that’s okay.

Who designed your book covers?
B Creative Designs

If you had to do it all over again, would you change anything in your latest book?
I’d like to see it a little longer.

Did you learn anything during the writing of your recent book?
Yes. I have a hard time focusing for long periods of time.

If your book was made into a film, who would you like to play the lead?
Skylar- Margot Robbie (but with dark hair)
Eliza- ???? Sarah Shahi
Cameron- Alex Pettyfer (based on looks only, I’ve never seen him act) 

Anything specific you want to tell your readers?
When you read Harmony For My Mate or any books from that series, I hope you connect with the characters and they help you examine your own life. Don’t assume it’s a typical menage story. Be open to examining your accepted ideas of love. 

How did you come up with the name of this book? 
It’s one of the words I think of when I think about the idea of sanctuary.

What is your favorite part of this book and why?
Writing the scenes with Skylar and Eliza because I had to look at love in a new way.

If you could spend time with a character from your book whom would it be? And what would you do during that day?
Eliza- she’s a chef

Are your characters based off real people or did they all come entirely from your imagination?
There’s a little bit of me in every female character I write and a little of my husband in every male character I write. Other than that there is no one specific.

Do your characters seem to hijack the story or do you feel like you have the reigns of the story? 

Convince us why you feel your book is a must-read.
Because this book will move you and help you escape your world for a little bit.

Have you written any other books that are not published?

If your book had a candle, what scent would it be?
Clean Cotton
