Ten things you don’t know about Gabrielle Evans
1) Where was the weirdest or strangest place that an idea came from for a story?
A: Story ideas come from all kinds of places for me—movies, dreams, conversations, songs. Probably the strangest, however, was when the batteries in my wall clock died. We didn’t have the right size batteries anywhere in the house, and had that “what if” moment. What if technology ceased to exist? What if even batteries no longer worked to power all of our gadgets? And from there, the Howl at the Moon series was born.
2) Okay, time warped back to the 80s, which could best described as you, big-hair and shoulder pad, punk/alternative, preppie girl, or head banging metal chick?
A: Hmmm, probably punk/alternative with maybe a dash of head banger thrown in for good measure.
3) If you could name a newly discovered planet what would it be called?
A: Expiscor – loosely translated Latin, meaning Discovery.
4) What is your favourite movie quote and why?
A: I actually have two, though one is from a television series.
“You are my exception.” Justin Long – He’s Just Not That Into You
“There’s no such thing as a bad idea, just poorly executed awesome ones.” Ian Somerhalder – The Vampire Diaries
5) What was the first dirty book that you read and who was the author?
A: If we’re talking pure erotic romance, it was My Lupine Lover by Stormy Glenn.
6) If you could be a colour what colour would you be and why?
A: Red. It’s sexy, bold, and fun, all at the same time.
7) You meet an alien for the first time, what would be your first words and how would you react?
A: I suppose it would depend on what the alien looked like and how he/she acted. I tend to think through things logically and rationally before reacting to situations. The only thing I can say for sure, is I wouldn’t be one of those screaming damsels in distress.
8) When you write, are there any particular items that you absolutely need, besides, the computer, and papers and pens?
A: Internet for research. My phone so I can call someone if I get stuck or need “expertise” about a particular subject.
9) What would be your version of a perfect day?
A: A day alone on the sofa with old movies and Chinese takeout. A day where no one had a problem or needed me for anything.
10) And lastly, this is a heavy one, chicken or the egg?
A: The chicken. Definitely the chicken.
