This week we take a look at Erin Sinclair. I asked her some quirky questions and got plenty of interesting answers!
Erin Sinclair writes for the following publisher(s): Devine Destinies (mainstream imprint for eXtasy Books)Erin’s favorite color? “It changes depending on my mood but primarily green and red. I’m beginning to lean towards sky blue and bronze with the orange undertone though.” Her favorite ice cream flavors? “Dark rich chocolate and mint chocolate chip.” When asked if she’s a cat, dog or both kind of person and if she’d ever own(ed) a snake or some other exotic pet her answers were ~ “Both, but love the way a dog greets me, makes me feel so appreciated.” & “Hamsters, 14 of them at one time, not sure why. I had a Golden Hamster named Goldie whom I taught to do tricks. I think snakes are cool but I’ve known people who have them and their odor is off-putting to me. I’d love to hand raise a beautiful parrot one day, I think they are oddly wonderful creatures.” Concerning her preference for warm weather or cold she states, “Both. I love a day filled with sunshine, then a nice afternoon thunderstorm, followed by a rainbow and bright blue sky, temperature mild (75 to 80 degrees), humidity balanced. I love a bright sunshine winter day with fresh untouched snow on the ground.” As for where she’d live if she could live anywhere in the universe, “Earth, because of the variety of beauty and because it’s in my blood.” In regard to what time of day she prefers, Erin states “Use to be night, now I find mornings very peaceful when all is quiet and I’m alone with my thoughts.” Her favorite day of the week: “Friday evenings.” Her favorite number is 3. When asked if athletic shoes are sneakers or tennies and if a soft drink is called soda or pop, she responded: Sneakers & Soda
Here’s a scenario posed to the author: “You’re at a conference and an agent comes up to you and says, “I’ve seen your name on the web. I’m interested in taking you on as a client. You have a couple of minutes to wow me to convince me that I should.” You can only plug one book in this short amount of time. What book would you plug to land this contract and why?” Erin’s response: I answer this question with some assumptions in mind. The reputation of the agent precedes her and the energy I sense from her will work well with mine. I love the premise of my first novel, Twilight’s Son. It is about an angel who is given the opportunity to descend into humanity for the love of a human woman, so that is the novel I’d sell her on and the selling conversation would proceed something like this…
“Imagine if all your life you’ve loved and lost, not because your choice of men is lousy, but because there seems to be no one to whom you can possibly relate to. Imagine if the only man truly perfect for you was an angel and not just any angel but one selected by Uriel, The Archangel of Judgment, to join his Host and ascend to the next Heavenly realm to work side by side with the being who will one day judge all of humanity. Imagine if your angel, your soul mate, your one and only love tells Uriel ‘No’ and all for the love of you.
I’d like to introduce you to Lt. Detective Brie Carter and Ezekiel, Angel of Earth, former guardian and guiding angel to humanity, now descended, allowed to become human and given the opportunity to explore that love on the Earth plane. There’s only one small problem. The spurned Archangel declares their love to be an abomination, as the last time angels and human women combined it led to terrible consequences. Uriel descends to stop their joining at all costs, even if it means our couple’s demise. Judgment is coming, will true love conquer all? Only my trilogy will reveal the answer to you…”
Thank you for the information Erin!
