Author Interview: Dulcie Dameron
Recently, I've joined a group of Christian Mommy Writers. In it, I'm discovering lots of new authors to me, like Dulcie Dameron. I can't wait to get to know her better right along with you. Her books sounds like lots of fun.
Dulcie, you say your love of writing goes all the way back to seventh grade. If you're like me, you have some stories you hope never see the light of day that were written way back when. Can you remember the premise of your favorite? Could you see yourself revamping it in the future?
I actually do remember the very first story I ever started writing about ten years ago, and though I remember some of the premise, I don't know that I actually knew where the story was going myself! Haha. All I knew was that it was going to be a single mom romance/police officer romance and YES, I actually do think about revisiting that story a lot! I just wish I still had access to it to take a look at how horrible my writing must have been, haha.
You live in a small town. How does it compare to the small towns in your books?
It's actually very similar to the town I describe in my books. River Hollow is loosely based off of my hometown and it's where I've drawn much of my inspiration from.
If you had to describe your books in one sentence, what would you say?
I'd say you'll find quirky characters, swoony kisses, and small-town vibes in each one.
Sounds great to me!
Your newest book has some magical and time-travel aspects, unlike your others. Do you prefer one genre over the other? What made you switch?
Oooh, this is a tough one! I couldn't pick just one genre that I prefer, honestly. And I haven't technically "switched" since I'll certainly be revisiting Christian Contemporary Romance again in a future series, but I did just change gears a little by venturing into Contemporary Fantasy. I've always been a HUGE fantasy lover and truthfully, it's what I wanted to start writing when I picked up my pen in earnest. But being so new to fiction, I didn't think I had the creative chops to complete a Fantasy novel. It wasn't until I had the first two books under my belt that I felt confident enough to write my Romantic Fantasy story, A Drop in Forever.
I've got to admit, time-travel makes my head ache. What was the hardest part of writing a book with that element?
There's no actual back and forth travel in this story, but there were elements that took some thought and creativity for. One character in particular has experienced many different ages so it took a lot speculative thought on my part to make her a well-rounded character. Having lived such a long life, what would she have experienced that we don't get to? What would her thoughts and feelings have been on living for centuries? It was questions like those that I had to ask myself and really dig deep for.
Do you have one character who is more like you than your others? How?
This is also a tough answer, but only because I feel like people might see me in a different light if I confess, haha. The two characters of mine that I probably identify the most with are Claudia Clark from Not Since You and Merrick Forrester in A Drop in Forever. They both could be considered "grumps" and have been through a lot in their lives. Each experienced loss and betrayal and sometimes have a hard time seeing the blessings in the support system around them. It's not easy to admit that I identify with those things, but it's certainly the truth. Not that I'm admitting to being a grump. :)
What are you working on next? Can you give us any sneaks?
Oh, boy! I'm always working on something. Like I said, I intend to have another Christian Contemporary Romance series to release in the Spring, but there may be a few more surprises in the works this Winter, too. You'll just have to stay tuned. :)
Please leave us with one fact about yourself that very few people know.
Hmm. Very few people know that I am obsessed the movie the Labyrinth. I don't even like admitting that, but it's true. Results of a misspent youth, I'm afraid. *Covers face in embarrassment*
Nothing to be embarrassed about by that! It's a fun movie. ;) Thanks so much for stopping by to chat with us. I definitely need to go read a few of your books now.
