M&M Makin’ the Rounds

The Story of Us?

Q: What do you think helped to mold your writing style and genre preferences?

Michelle: It’s hard to say. I read a lot of classics growing up--Austen, Steinbeck, Wilde, ect--before transitioning into historical romances in the 1990s. I think my love for history, as well as for a happily ever after determined where my writing started. But, since I’ve become a full time writer, my tastes have changed. I write paranormal, futuristic, contemporaries, fantasy, ect. I love switching up the genres and playing with style. I write in different heat levels from the sweet to the erotic. Also, writing for the magazine lets me experience a more journalistic type style as compared to fiction.

Mandy: Oh, this is an easy one. I. Am. A. Total. Freak. There. It is now official and out in the world. Yep. You heard it here first. I’m a freak. Always have been and always will be. I like all things weird and quirky. I find humor in places most wouldn’t think to look and I’m not one to shy away or back down from confirmation. I wasn’t finding that in the books I was reading and decided it was time to bring some of my personal flavor to the world of writing. So far, it’s been going all right for me. *wink, wink*

I will say that I had an interesting childhood. It was unique and at times a bit unorthodox. It expanded my horizons and gave me a bigger outlook on life and everything around me. Also made for nice fodder for books.

Hello Mandy and Michelle,

I'm sorry I couldn't post a comment yesterday, but you need an account and I don't have one.

Anyways, Michelle the classics are amazing aren't they. I've read all of Austen, Dickens, Steinbeck, etc. and I never seem to get tired of them.

Mandy, quirky and fun is definitely okay. You have a great writing style that is truly unique and fun read.

Thanks for blogging today. :D

Hi Becca! Thanks for following teh blog tour! :)

I love Austen. When I was contacted to do the reimagining of Pride and Prejudice, I was so thrilled. I LOVE Mr. Darcy. :)
