Here is my author interview with the talented author S.E. Babin for the Multi Author, Multi Day, Multi Genre Book Bash – day three which is featuring Paranormal/Sci Fi/Fantasy Authors. She is the author of several books including The Hunt For Snow and Snow’s Lament which I have definitely recommend you check out today!
How many books do you currently have available on the market within the paranormal/sci fi or fantasy genres and which would they fit into?
I have seven books available. Most are within the paranormal genre, but one is a mix of cyberpunk and sci-fi.
If you had to choose one genre to read for the rest of your life what would it be and why?
It would have to be urban fantasy. I always love reading about the underdog.
What do you think the hardest part of being an author is?
Making things up!
Do you believe that any type of paranormal/fantasy creatures really exist such as vampires, witches, ghosts etc and why do you believe this either way?
I’d say yes to ghosts and definitely to witches. Ghostly phenomena has been proven and witches are pretty common in alternative faiths.
What is one random thing that you can tell us about yourself that readers might be surprised by?
I served in the military for well over a decade.
Have you ever read a book that left you raw with emotion whether it be sad, happy or even scared?
I have to say Me Before You by Jojo Moyes left me a weepy mess.
If one of your books were to be turned into a movie who would you cast to play your leading characters and why?
I would love to see my Snow Books (The Hunt for Snow & Snow’s Lament) turned into movies. I’d have Anna Kendrick play Snow because my character is smart and sarcastic. Robin would have to be Colin O’Donoghue. Max…hmmm…maybe Jackson Hurst. Merlin would be Carter MacIntyre. Cinderella would have to be Reese Witherspoon and Bell would be Sandra Bullock!
If you could co-write a book with any author who would it be with, what genre would you choose and why?
I’d love to write with Ilona Andrews in urban fantasy. She has such funny, memorable characters.
When it comes to your own books what is one thing that you do to ensure that they are unique and will stand out against other books within the same genre?
I think way outside the box with them, and I always make sure they’re funny. Life isn’t always angsty and dreary. I’m the kind of person who makes jokes in the most uncomfortable moments. If you can’t laugh at yourself, life isn’t very fun.
Any big plans or projects planned for 2016 that you would like to share with us?
2016 is an extremely busy release year for me. Book 3 of my Goddess Chronicles series is coming out as well as book 3 of the Fairytale League. Book two of the Time Wardens will be out. I’m participating in two boxed sets and also have a new series starting. Send coffee!
