Can you introduce yourself to my readers a little?
I’m Michelle Rowen, author of paranormal romance, urban fantasy, and young adult novels. I’m probably best known for my Immortality Bites vampire series, but I have a new paranormal series starting up in May with THE DEMON IN ME. My website is www.michellerowen.com
Can you introduce us to the world that you have created?
The worlds I tend to create are exactly like our world — only humans are mostly unaware of the presence of supernaturals. In my new Living in Eden series I call them “Others,” as in “other than human,” and they’re made up so far of demons, witches, angels, shifters and fairies who live side by side with unsuspecting humans.
Will this be your first RT or are you a veteran? Any advice for those who are going for the first time?
This will be my 4th RT, so I guess I’m a bit of a veteran! Advice… I’d say try not to get overwhelmed. There’s a lot going on. Also, don’t be shy. And, this is a nod to the lady who yelled at me in a line in Pittsburgh to get into a luncheon when I joined my friends closer to the front — be patient. We’re all in this together. Sheesh. ;-)
Are you speaking on any panels during RT? Are there any you are looking forward to?
I am! This is the first RT at which I’ll be doing panels. I haven’t in the past because I’ve been too late to volunteer for them and all the spots have been snapped up. I’m going to be on two panels on Wednesday, April 28th. “Young Adult: You really can go back: Transitioning from adult romance to young adult” from 11:15 a.m. – 12:15 p.m. and then “Urban Fantasy: Alpha Males and the Kick-Ass Heroines who love them” from 2:30 – 3:30 p.m. As far as panels I’m going to be attending — I love going to the ones about craft where writers just talk about their process.
If someone were wanting to meet up with you at RT, who should they look for?
The highly caffeinated blonde chick who’s trying very hard to stay on her diet and likely failing miserably. During RT I will probably be twittering as much as I can at twitter.com/michellerowen.
