Today Lovely Books Shines The Author Spotlight On…
N.L. Greene, who is 1/2 of the author duo Riana Lucas, has decided to venture outside of the Fantasy world that she and her best friend created with Poppy and The Deadly Flowers Series to write a few books on her own. While she loves working with her best friend, writing solo has allowed her to explore interest that had solely been her own. She spends a lot of time reading her favorite authors which range all over the place and in every genre, but spends just as much time with her husband and two daughters, traveling, shopping, and playing video games. Nichole was born in Pennsylvania but grew up in Florida, where she and her high school sweetheart live with their two children.
How long have you been writing? When did you decide to become an author?
I have been officially writing for about 3 years now. I used to hate reading but the Twilight Saga hooked me and from there I couldn’t stop reading. After reading so much, my mind started swirling with all these ideas so I decided to start writing them down.
How do you find inspiration?
My lastest book TWISTED was inspired by my own real life. The new series I’m working on now was inspired by my own vivid imagination and my husband putting in his 2 cents 🙂
How do you go about writing a book? Do you have any schedule, tricks or tips to share?
I wish I had tricks!! I don’t have a schedule either. I write when I have time or when inspiration hits. I take my laptop everywhere with me so I’m always prepared. I usually start with just writing down a bunch of stuff and then go back to it later and try to make since of it. It’s worked so far!
What kind of books do you read? Who is your favorite author?
I literally read EVERYTHING! I love all books, genres, and authors. But I do have a favorite author…Kim Harrison!! I LOVE her!
What are you currently working on?
I am currently working on editing my first book in a new series about magic. It’s going to be a NA Romance with just a little of ‘real magic’. There will 3 books and the first is titled THE ILLUSIONS BEGIN. I am so excited to see where the series goes.
