Author Interview with Ali Parker:
1. How did you become involved with the subject or theme of your book?
My new book is a billionaire novel about a creative type that wants to live out his dreams, but is battling against what he thinks his billionaire accounting mogul father and older brother want him to do. It’s the struggle between what you want for yourself, and what you think others wants for you. I am a CPA that turned into a fiction author, so funny enough, this theme and subject matter is my own. Matt, my Hero is working through that in the novel, and our Heroine is the same type of person, but has sold out to the business world – choosing stability over living out her dreams.
2. Why did you choose to write in your particular field or genre? If you write more than one, how do you balance them?
I have 10 series going right now, and the Billionaire books were born from my desire to write to market. I can tell a love story in any setting or subgenre, but romance readers seem to really enjoy the idea of a wealthy Alpha male who struggles to maintain in control and how his woman conquers him in the end.
I keep my series on a constant cycle, writing the next book in series one and then moving to wherever I am in series two. I have detailed notes, character sketches and plot holes lined out in a file folder I keep for each series. I also re-read the previous novel in the series to get myself back into character before detail plotting and starting to write.
3. Where did your love of books/storytelling/reading/writing/etc. come from?
I’ve always been an avid reader, but never a writer. I decided in my early thirties that I wanted to see if I were capable of writing a novel, so in 2010 I put my ideas to paper and wrote a YA tale. After that, it almost becomes addictive to see if you can spin another and another… The goal was always to create a setting/world, characters and a plot line that would intrigue people or perhaps even captivate them. I wanted to make the world fade and offer them a bit of a reprieve or vacation from the comfort of their couch. 88 books later… I’m still trying to do that same thing.
4. What were your goals and intentions in this book, and how well do you feel you achieved them?
My goals for the Creative Billionaire series were to give my readers a spin-off from my best selling Billionaire Alpha series that offered them a little more time in the original world and with the original characters, but also told a story that struggled against passion verses responsibility. I think I accomplished and the reviews have been great for this one.
5. What was the hardest part of writing this book? What did you enjoy most about writing this book?
The hardest part was not knowing the ending. I’m the queen of cliffhangers, and I usually won’t let H and h have love until the last book in the series, but that’s shifting in me all of a sudden. For this series, that love happened much quicker, namely because my main characters had been pining after each other for the last two years prior to where we open the story up. I will say that the ending was my most favorable part of book 2 because of keeping that love intact. I wasn’t sure how to surprise my reader and yet still keep the emotion between H and h solid, but the story took on a life of its own, and I was
grinning like a fool when the last word was typed. I’m proud of this one. It accomplished a lot of things all at one time.
