Interview with Siobhan Muir, Author of Her Devoted Vampire!

I am very pleased to resurface in order to interview a great friend and writer, Siobhan Muir. Her latest, and first published work, Her Devoted Vampire was released on February 22nd and it is MUST for paranormal and romance readers.

Her Devoted Vampire by Siobhan Muir


So tell us a few things, Siobhan...

Where do you currently live?
In Las Vegas, the land of wind and sun.
Are you married? kids? pets?
Yes, but not to my kids or my pets. ;)
What/who/ how did you get started writing?
I did. The stories wouldn’t leave me alone and eventually I had to write them down.
Do you want to thank one person in particular for giving that extra push?
For Her Devoted Vampire, I have to thank Shannan Albright for demanding I get this story out where people other than my family could see it.
How many books did you attempt before you were published?
I didn’t attempt to publish, but I’d finished 11 novels before Her Devoted Vampire was published.
Do you have any MUST haves to write? Food, drink or time?
It’s time. Definitely blocks of uninterrupted time to focus.
Which novel is your favorite of your books?
Of my own books? Right now, I think it’s my Navy SEALs story, but there are moments in all my novels that make me think, “Wow, did I write this? It’s really good!”
Who is your favorite character?
Uhm…
How many books do you have in the works now?
I think I have a total of 24 stories in various states of completion at the moment. Most of them are romance, but there are a few sci-fi/fantasy novels in there, too. :)
For your next book, what is the name and when is the release date?
My next release is coming in May from Siren Publishing with a tentative title of Queen Bitch of the Callowwood Pack.
What made you write this book?
I actually got the whole story for Queen Bitch in a dream I had. It was such a cool idea, I had to write it down.
Do you like writing the hot romance scenes?
Not as much as I like writing the build-up to them and the interaction of the characters.
Do you have plans for another new book/series?
Well, after Queen Bitch, I’m hoping to get a couple of dragon shifter stories (one contemporary, one historical) out there. And then a goblin story, a Navy SEALs story, and a ghost story, and…
What is the 1st book you remember reading and falling in love with?
I think it was Dragonsong by Anne McCaffery. I loved the idea that I could have a dragon of my very own. 
Who are your favorite authors? Favorite series? 
That’s a long list. However I’ll give you the genre favorites that come to mind: 
Science fiction with romantic elements – Cara Michaels
Historical Romance – Monica McCarty
Historical Romantic Suspense – Gaelen Foley
Fantasy – Elizabeth Kerner and Elizabeth Moon
Historical Erotic Romance – Kate Pearce
Romantic Suspense – Roxanne St. Claire
LGBT Romance – Suzanne Brockmann
BDSM Romance – Kallypso Masters
What is your favorite quote?
I have two, actually.
“Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgment that something else is more important than fear.” – Meg Cabot
“Whether you think you can or you can’t, either way, you are right.” – Henry Ford
Do you have a favorite book cover?
I have several, but riding ahead of the others is the cover for Her Devoted Vampire, mostly because my name is on it. :D
Naughtiest book you ever read?
Lora Leigh’s Wicked Pleasure ;)

  1. Oooh, what's my favorite fantasy/paranormal critter. It's easy to say, 'the ones I write,' lol. In truth, I've had a long fascination with dragons. Siobhan, we're totally on the same page with Dragonsong being one of our earliest influences.

    I'm so happy to make your list of fave authors. Congratulations on this first of many releases.

    1. Dragons are my favorite because they could fly. Who wouldn't want to ride one? Thanks so much for stopping by! :)

  2. When I was a girl, I saw the Last Unicorn and became obsessed with the creatures. There is a reason they are among the four magical races in my fanatsy world. I've also been fond of the various types of fairies, dryad, nayads, etc.

    Vampires vex me. I'm a scientist, and something so close in resemblance to human plagues me to explain, biologically, how they exist. It usually detracts from the story. That said, I enjoy some vampire stories, but rather than paranormal, I'm definitely a fantasy girl.
