Exclusive Interview

Q. Do you have a set schedule for writing, or are you one of those who writes only when they feel inspired?

I don’t have a set schedule. However, the document I happen to be working on at the time is open on my laptop pretty much 24/7. That way when something comes to me, I can write.

Q. Do your novels carry a message?

In my Chasers series and the upcoming Inked Chasers trilogy, all my female heroines are curvy women. The only message my books carry is that it shouldn’t matter your size, color or sex. Love is up for grabs for everyone.

Q. How much of yourself do you put into your books?

I see myself in every one of my heroines, even if in a small way. My husband has read my 1st book and he said my Randa Michaels is so much like me it’s uncanny.

Q. You write using a pseudonym can you tell us why you chose to write under a pseudonym?

While I’m sure some authors might worry about an unsavory fan, I guess it never occurred to me. My reasoning was merely because I didn’t think my real name was very interesting.

Q. You’re a veteran of the US Air Force how have you incorporated that into your writing?

Through my parents, I learned that being the best person you could be (to yourself and to others) is very important. This carried over into my military life. I took a lot of pride in how I acted, how I treated others as I saw it a reflection of my branch of service and didn’t want to dishonor it. I guess I try and make my characters the same, the best THEY can be. Now, that’s not to say that I and THEY don’t have flaws, but generally speaking I try to keep them to behaving like good people.

Q. Is there anything you are currently working on that may intrigue the interest of your readers?

My Chasers series is about ½ written and I’m hoping to continue it in a different city. However, I do have a couple of standalone stories that I’m working on. One is a younger woman/older man idea and the other is an MC with a mafia feel to it.

Author Interview – Lexi Miles

Q. The Book The Order of Moonlight is A Vampire Romance is a paranormal Journey of Love Have you had a paranormal experience if Author Interview Stamp smallso do you care to share?

Yes, I have had a few paranormal experiences, but the one that jumps out to the forefront of my mind was one night when I went with a group of friends to the movies as a teenager. The movies neighbored the creepy Winchester Mystery House. We had some time to kill before the movie and popped over to the Winchester Mystery House to look around the lobby. Tours were over for the night, but one of the sweet older staff members, in full period costume, told a friend and me that sometimes ghosts appear to visitors via the window or in various spots of the house. She assured us that they were friendly. I am brave, but in some cases, I do embrace my inner chicken. That is code for, I am a card-carrying Scooby and Shaggy type of chicken when it comes to possible spooky encounters, not a fan of the scary, so friendly ghosts or not, in that moment, I was done entirely at Chez Creepy House. With that, I booked it back to the safety of the theater and when I looked back at the house I saw someone in the upstairs window. Later I found out that not only was that figure not supposed to be upstairs in the window, but no one else outside of myself and a friend saw the woman who had spoken to us. Needless to say, to this day, with the jury being out if that woman I talked to was a ghost or not, I don’t make it a habit of going too close to that place. That was enough ghostbuster excitement and fun for this girl. (Giggles.) Continue reading The Order of Moonlight
