Interview with Lenore Wolfe


Tell us a little bit about yourself:
I have come from some pretty tough circumstances, these past few years, and survived. Someday, that will be a story in itself, but for now, I'm learning how to believe again.

What is your current book? Tell us a little about it?
I am currently working on The Fallen One. It is not about the fallen angels. It is the fallen one in the Jaguar society. It is about The Jaguar People. As a teen, this young man was chased on the streets of Chicago, daily, by gangs. To protect himself and his sisters, one day, when he was around 14, he changed. Usually the Jaguar People do not come into their powers until they're old enough to handle their powers, but the stress of always fighting danger caused him to tap into his early.

As an adult, he was destroyed by the monster he had inside of him. Where she was raised to use her powers to protect the human race.

Introduce your protagonist. The protagonist is a young woman who helps a monster see his world around him, and perhaps helps him believe enough to change his world.

In The Fallen One, my main character is caught between the worlds of both. He is, more, the lesser of two evils, or perhaps, we can no longer tell who is truly good, and who is evil.

The antagonist is a well known District attorney. He's a serial killer and uses his position to hide behind. Everyone sees him as being the perfect model of society.

What other works have you written?
Dark Warrior is a historical western romance. Hawk was abandoned at 6 years old, by his father, when his father partakes in the massacre of their friends. He's picked up by a Cheyenne warrior and raised as his son. Later, as a young man, Hawk goes to find his baby sister, only to lose her during the Civil War to a murdering bunch. Hawk takes up the way of the white man, becomes a gunfighter, to exact revenge, and discovers the woman he is destined, by the grandmothers, to marry, fighting the same brutal killer he's been hunting for so many years.

Hawk and Mandy discover an evil force behind the massacre of Native Americans, and that same force has been taking down all who would help their people--including Mandy who is prophesied to bring them help and save hundreds of lives.

Hawk has always been in Mandy's visions. But now, she must fight beside him to save her ranch and take down the cattle baron who murdered her father. Together, they must walk the path of grandmothers to fight the man behind the mask, who appears human, but is not human at all.

My second book is Doorway of the Triquetra. In this paranormal fantasy, Mira is the next Jaguar Witch in line to hold the sacred medallion, but she is the only one who can cross the Doorway of the Triquetra and access the sacred stone hidden in Fae Land since the falling of Atlantis. (There is one other, but we will learn more about him in the second book). She has been trying to reach the stone in lifetime after lifetime, but Xavier Dubioux, a powerful sorcerer, has manged to kill her every time. Now, the four immortal men, who have been with her throughout each lifetime, are here, once again, to help her find her way through the land of the Fae to find the stone.


Which character do you like the most of all those you have written?
Hawk. He is the epitome of spirit for me.

Describe your writing journey. Who influenced you?
Harriet Beecher Stowe. I grew up hearing the stories of how she was my great grand mother's great aunt. My great-grandmother was born in 1887, and I grew up listening to her stories. I was always impressed by how a powerful story could move an entire nation.

What do you find the most exciting thing about writing?
Playing the 'what if' game and living, for awhile, in the land of what may be...if we're willing to question

What do you find the most frustrating thing about writing?
Trying to get all the stories, in my head, out on paper:) It takes time to write just one novel, and knowing the others will have to wait frustrates me.

Describe your writing rituals and space?
I listened to the audio book Eat That Frog, which talked about organization and getting your biggest task out of your way first. So, in essence, you get up and eat the biggest thing on your plate first, and the rest of your day will flow better.

I get up and write, then market, since I need to finish 5000 words a day, four days a week, to meet my deadline. On Fridays, I put together my blogs for the week. I have 10 blogs I'm trying to run. The authors have done most of the work:) I'm just trying to organize it--and make another place for Indie authors to be seen.
