BBB: What inspired you to become an author?
CM: Ever since I was a kid, I’ve always had a vivid imagination and loved creating stories in my head. I’d always wanted to be an author or a scriptwriter, but life seemed to get in the way of those professional aspirations for a while. Then I discovered the world of indie publishing, came up with an idea for a trilogy, and here I am.
CM: My first series The Faded Trilogy is a young adult paranormal romance about a human girl, an irresistibly charming ghost, a town terrorized by violent and unpredictable weather, and dark forces who will stop at nothing to tear them apart. There’s a little magic, a little action, and an inspiring love story behind it all.
Obviously, with Hunter being a spirit and Savannah being a human, their relationship is certainly not without its difficulties and obstacles, but the message throughout the series is that true love can conquer all, even the impossible.
Love is an emotional feeling. The idea of Savannah and Hunter’s love for each other is that the strongest feelings we feel aren’t always physically felt but felt wholly and powerfully within your heart.
I believe there is a powerful and inspirational message behind The Faded Trilogy, and I hope that the readers will walk away from this series with a little more hope and love in their hearts.
CM: I wanted to write a paranormal romance that was a little different to everything else that’s already been written. I loved the idea of earthbound spirits protecting the town from evil. And, being a hopeless romantic, I loved the idea of eternal undying love, especially between two characters who are so young but whose love is so rare and beyond their years.
It happened to be storming when I was coming up with the idea for the series, so that’s the inspiration behind the power over the weather that the characters possess and the unpredictable storms terrorizing the town.
CM: I want to dedicate my heart and soul to The Faded Trilogy and ensure its success before I move on to any other writing projects. You never know what may happen in the future in regards to other writing projects, but right now my heart belongs to Savannah and Hunter.
BBB: Do you ever get writer's block?
CM: I think writer’s block is something that all writers inevitably suffer from at some point or another. Whenever it happens, I try to take a step back from the story for a moment, clear my head, and then read back over the ideas I’ve already written. Nine times out of ten inspiration will find its way back and I’ll have a great idea suddenly pop into my head that I’d spent all day trying to think of.
BBB: How can readers discover more about you and your work?
CM: The three books in the series – Faded, See No Evil and Ever After – are available at online retailers in both paperback and ebook, and readers can also connect with the series on Goodreads and The Faded Trilogy Facebook page. I love connecting with new readers and hearing their thoughts on the series, and I can be found on Twitter @chloemiles_
