CREATIVE CONVERSATIONS with the Naughty Ninjas: EE Carter

What is your background with regard to writing?
I’ve always loved writing and I fell into journalism where I also fell in love with my husband. Everything I’ve ever done professionally has centred on writing.

When did you first begin writing with a view of embarking on a career as a published author?
I played around with the idea of writing a novel for 25 years before I did anything seriously about writing it. I started Moonstone Obsession in June 2014 and in April 2013 I was offered a contract

What is your writing routine?
Come up with a two page overview of the story with a broad brush description of the characters and the theme, then come up with an eight page synopsis and then as I go on with each chapter I do a chapter outline ahead of time. Sometimes the action doesn’t all make the one chapter so that gets pushed forward until it fits in naturally.

Favourite snack whilst writing?
Unsalted nuts.

If you weren’t writing, what would you be doing?
Be a radio voice over artist.

What do you find easiest to write? And, the hardest?
I love writing scene descriptions and dialogue, that’s easy to me. Writing a short story is hard. Some how everything becomes an epic!

Tell us about the first book you wrote.
Moonstone Obsession is the first book, but not the first story I wrote. The first story I wrote was as a 10 year old and it was an adventure story about a girl detective. Moonstone Obsession, however is my first serious attempt at writing fiction. It is a Regency romance set in England and France in the early days of the French Revolution. It has adventure, action, romance and Chapter 12 – ask Beanie Queen Ninja about that one…

One thing you’d like readers to know about the romance genre…
Romance more than a love story. It is about honour, duty, sacrifice and joy – it is everything that makes life living.

Ten quickies:

Milk or dark chocolate? Dark

Red, white, bubbly? Yes (oh, the question is supposed be multiple choice?)

Salty or sweet? Sweet

Beach or mountains? Mountains

Give or receive? Give

Facebook or Twitter? Facebook

Romance or erotica (for reading and/or writing)? Romance with a bit of spice for both.

Dog or cat? Meow! Cat, of course!

Summer or winter? Winter

Star-gazing or storm-watching? Storm watching! It’s exhilarating

  1. Yes I’m with you Kitty. Romance needs a bit of spice and Chapter 12 has ‘phwoar’ factor, I vouch for that!

  2. How does one pronounce ‘phwaor?’ I have to assume the ‘r’ is silent because Aussies don’t pronounce the ‘r’ but stick it in spelling anyway. ‘phwahhhhhh’ is how I assume ti sounds to non-Oz residents.

    Thank you Lily and thank you J’aimee for having me at your place!

  4. A radio voice over artist is an interesting alternate career! Nice to meet you, Elizabeth Ellen Carter.
