It’s time for another segment of the Author’s Studio. Today I’m excited to have Emma Meade stop by all the way from Ireland. She is an incredible writer, who can spark every emotion in you in just a couple of words. Emma has become an author who I really look up to and inspires me in so many ways. Now it’s your turn to get to know Emma.
HERE’S A LITTLE ABOUT EMMA
“My name’s Emma Meade. I live in rainy Ireland, and I’m currently swimming the murky depths of self-publishing versus traditional publishing. I love vampires, slayers, witches, ghosts, aliens & shadow men (or at least the youngest of the Shadow Men), and regular people who live extraordinary lives (think Slayerettes and you’re on the right track). Growing up, L.J. Smith was one of my favourite authors. To this day I adore her trilogy The Forbidden Game. I have lost count of the number of times I’ve read Stephen King’s epic novel, The Stand. I also love anything written by Irish legend Marian Keyes. Books, DVDS & TV show boxsets take up lots of space in my home, and I collect all thePoint Horror books I can get my hands on. I am not ashamed to admit that Dirty Dancing and Twilight make my top ten movie list but I would like to point out thatThe Last of the Mohicans, Reality Bites, Dead Poets Society, Stand by Me and The Goonies are in there too.”
And Now it’s Time for:
1.What is your favorite word?
Okay, tough one. I’ll go with Rivendell. It rolls off the tongue easily and brings to mind a beautiful landscape.
2. What is your least favorite word?
Carnage and carcass are coming to mind.
3. What turns you on?
An attractive smile, the smell of aftershave like Hugo Boss, candlelight 🙂
4. What turns you off?
People who say the F word in every other sentence
5. What sound do you love?
Wind chimes, my dad’s voice, my nieces’ laughter.
6. What sound do you hate?
Nails scraping on a chalkboard
7. What is your favorite curse word?
Shite – not really a curse word.
8. What profession other than yours would you like to attempt?
9. What profession would you not like to do?
High powered executive or anything very business related. I don’t like wearing suits and would despise being stuck in an office ten hours a day six days a week.
10. Tell us something no one knows about you?
Drawing a blank here. My first serious crush was on the character Krycek from The X-Files, when he went bad, of course. The lovely Nicholas Lea played him. I’d say not many people know that.

[…] Touring around the blogosphere with Beneath Manhattan Skies is keeping me busy this week. The lovely Maria Monteiro caught me for a quickfire interview over at the Author’s Studio. […]
Cheers, Maria. This was fun.
