Tour Kick Off: Back in My Life by @Mariecrauthor #interview

Romance / Erotica
Date Published: February 27, 2016

Back in my Life is a story set in the beautiful cities of New York and Chicago. This story is not the typical and simple "boy meets girl, boy and girl get marry story." This story is a powerful story that shows how real and unselfish love truly looks like. The love between Ruby and Clyde is an amazing and genuine love that survived everything that came in between them—even the most painful experiences that destiny had planned for them.

During a college internship at a prestigious New York magazine, Ruby Sparks (a journalist graduate student from Chicago) meets Clyde Holt, (a fellow intern and a creative photography student from a London based college) whom from day one became Ruby's obsession and the new reason for her existence. After developing strong feelings for her emotionally unavailable friend, Ruby finds herself trapped in a whirlpool of emotions while trying to earn her friend's love. What Ruby doesn't know is that while she is looking for true love, Clyde's presence in her life came with a different purpose.

#1 – Do You See Writing as a Career?

I do. I actually would love to be able to do it on a full-time basis. Writing is one of my biggest passions and if I get the opportunity to do it as a full-time job, I will definitely do it.

#2 – What was the Hardest Part of Your Writing Process?

I think I mentioned this on a recent interview, but I am going to say it again. I have to be honest and say that the hardest part of my writing process is the writing perse. English is not my first language. I love to write and, as a romance addict, I have all these love scenes running through my mind, but when I try to put them in writing, I struggle a little to find the correct words to use. But, with Back in my Life, I realized that I am getting to that stage where I want to be˗˗where I can put in paper all the ideas I have without having to struggle so much with the language barrier.

#3 – Did you have any One Person Who Helped You Out with Your Writing Outside of Your Family?

I recently hired an editing company and this person has done a terrific job helping me with my writing. Like I mentioned earlier, being the fact that English is not my first language, I struggle a little with the writing rules, etc., but my editor keeps me on track.

#4 – What is next for your writing?

I am currently working on my next romance novel, which is called Happiness, Interrupted. In Back in my Life, I mixed the romance and Erotica genre because I felt that readers needed to see the two sides of this amazing love story. With Happiness, Interrupted, I kind of want to do something different. I want to bring the readers an inclusive love story, without the whole Erotica theme. The reason for that is because I want my teenagers to be able to read it. With Back in my Life, since is an adult novel, my kids have not been able to read, and I do want them to read Happiness, Interrupted.

#5 – Do you have an addiction to reading as well as writing? If so, what are you currently reading?

Oh boy, yes. I am a book addict. I have books everywhere in my house. Books that I probably should donate, but I can't get myself to take them out of my house. I love them so much that I probably will keep them until the day I die. I am currently reading Burn by James Patterson and Michael Ledwidge. My TBR list is so long that I don't even want to bore you with it; instead I am going to give you the first four books on the list:

1) Grey from E.L. James
2) Beautiful Redemption from Jamie McGuire
3) Walking Disaster from Jamie McGuire
4) It Ends With Us from Colleen Hoover

I have been writing for pleasure for the past couple of years, but this is the first time I do a book tour so I am very excited for it. Writing is my passion, and I enjoy using real-life stories as the basis for my novels, but giving them a little twist to make them more melodramatic and breath-taking. I am also the author of Pamela's Confessions and Confesiones del Alma. I currently live in Florida with my husband and three children.
