Friends Friday-Ryssa Edwards!

Hi Victoria!

Thanks for having me back.

I’m really excited to be here and talk about my recent and upcoming releases and . . . tell secrets.


What’s your first secret?

What? You’re breaking up. I can’t hear you.
Okay. My first secret is . . . I really love chocolate covered potato chips. There used to be a mall in Fort Lauderdale that made them fresh everyday. Good stuff. Sadly, the mall is out of business.

What book have you read lately that’s stayed with you? Why has it stayed with you?

Oh… you’re really getting up close and personal! Let’s see. . . I really loved A Taste of Crimson by Marjorie Liu. I liked the world. It’s fun to read a series where each book is written by a different writer. This book stayed with me because Michael, the romantic lead, makes the life of a vampire assassin/executioner vivid with feeling and color. Even though he’d done pretty scary things in his past, I still wanted a happy ending for him.

When you’re not writing, what do you like doing?

Reading! No, seriously, I like looking through fashion magazines, especially Vogue. The photographers are very talented. Some of the pictures are stories waiting to happen. I’ve been inspired by more than a few ads from Vogue and Cosmo. I keep saying I’ll cut out the really good ones and make a collage. *sighs* I’ll add it to my ‘to do’ list.

If you had a free half day, what would you do?

You know, when I was a kid I lived in New York. Manhattan was only about forty minutes away by subway. I used to love catching the train and going to the American Museum of Natural History. The dinosaurs captured my imagination. I was about as tall as their ankle. And their eggs were bigger than me. If I had half a day free, I’d fly back to New York and see if my dinosaurs are still there keeping the tourists in line.

Got new releases?

I’m so glad you asked! I have four new releases coming up.
