Interview and Giveaway: Finding Midnight: A Hellhound Tail by T. Lynne Tolles
Tell us a little about your latest or upcoming release.
Finding Midnight is about A young woman finds a hellhound pup and takes it in since it’s mother is found dead. Craziness ensues with raising a hellhound while she tries to find a missing item for her landlord.
Are you a mom?
I am. My daughter is 18 now and my son is 26. And then there are the hairy children. I have three cats and up until very recently a Newfoundland dog.
If yes do you find it hard to juggle writing and parenting?
It’s very hard to juggle writing and LIFE. My kids are forming their own lives and only one of them lives at home now, but LIFE in general tends to get in the way – or maybe I’m just not as disciplined as I could be.
Is there a theme or message in your work that you would like readers to connect to?
I’d say if there is a theme to my writing it’s that no matter who or what you are, we all have the same instincts. We just want to be accepted and loved. My supernatural characters are rarely diabolical, which I supposed disappoints some readers, but I like writing about those amazing souls that despite what they are on the outside are loving and caring beings.
What would your readers be surprised to learn about you?
I hated writing and reading in school. It wasn’t until I got out of school that I read for pleasure.
When you’re not writing what do you do? Do you have any hobbies or guilty pleasures?
I have more hobbies than I can count. If it’s crafty I’ve probably done it or at least tried it. Sewing and knitting are my fall backs, but I’ve done stained glass, lace work, crocheting, quilting, painting, sketching, and baking.
Which romance book or series do you wish you had written?
The Vampire Diaries – Love L.J. Smith and was so thrilled to see two of her series made into TV shows.
Is there a genre(s) that you’d like to write that you haven’t tackled yet?
I’m attempting to write a steampunk book. We’ll see how that goes. : D
Of all the characters you’ve ever written, who is your favorite and why?
In Finding Midnight, I think probably Summer’s quirky side-kick Tori. I think she’s a kick in the pants and she’s so willing to try anything. I’m probably more like Summer where I’m a bit timid about jumping into something new and tend to be more introverted.
If this book is part of a series…what is the next book? Any details you can share?
Well it hasn’t been written yet, but it is tentatively called Autumn Calls and it delves deeper into the Midnight family and the secrets they keep.
