#IndieHooplaPromos Tour: The Guardians of Man (Part 1 of 2)

Tour Schedule Here

I'm excited that I get to host on this tour because I met Lori several years ago and she's an amazing person and author. Crystal, I hope to get to know better. So ladies, I'm putting you in my hot chair, one at time of course, to see what myself and readers can learn about two authors working as one. Time to play 10 questions with Lori!

1. Do you prefer to write with a typewriter, pen and paper, or a computer?
I usually write on my computer, but when I want to experiment I will go back to pen and paper.

2. Do you need music or silence to write?
I don't like writing in silence. I usually have on some music, or have the tv on for background noise.

3. Did you read a lot as a child?
Yes, I was a voracious reader! I think that was one of the things that inspired me to write.

4. How did you pick your cover art? What was the inspiration?
R.L. Treadway did both the covers for The Guardians of Man and Hunting in Closed Spaces.  I discussed the stories with her and she came up with a few choices for each.

5. What would you like to be remembered for?
I would like to be remembered as someone who enriched the lives of others in some way.

6. Are there any of your characters that are based off of any people in real life?
None are actually based on real people, but some of the characters do have qualities of people I know.  For example,  Marradith's mother in Hunting has some personality traits of three different women.

7. Of your characters, whom do you favor most, and why?
In The Guardians of Man, I love Rythy.  She is so completely evil,  and has no clue about rules or limits. Justin Granthem is a favorite because he's flawed and sometimes comical, but in many ways he is an ideal man.

8. How long did it take you to write your very first novel?
About a year and a half.

9. Of your characters, who is it that you just love to hate? Why is that?
There are several! Leighton Ryder, Marradith's great grandfather, and Adam from Guardians.

10. How old were you when you first started writing?
I was nine.
