With very little to do in a small town, she let her imagination get the better of her and always dreamed of being a published author. She attended college at the University of Tennessee at Martin and received a Bachelor's Degree in Communications. After working with companies in each area of media, she was still unsatisfied.
In 2010, she began writing "Reap" for fun and hasn't stopped yet. The book turned into a series and plans for more books are in the works.
Watts is now an independent author and runs a small advertising/marketing company, Deep Blue Daisy, with her husband.
After many, many moves, she now resides once again in Cayce, Kentucky, with her husband, three daughters and two cats. (www.mistywatts.com)
BBB: What inspired you to become an author?
MW: I have wanted to be an author for as long as I can remember! When I was little I would staple notebook paper together to make a spine and write in a story. Up until now, my resume was basically stuff I don't want to have to do anymore.
MW: I was actually researching Bigfoot because there's a legend in my small town of creatures called minihoonies. They supposedly look like miniature versions of the myth. Then I slowly started clicking on more biblical creatures until Nephilim came up. I probably looked at two sites before the story popped into my head, then I couldn't stop. I wrote the entire manuscript in eight days. My family got pretty tired of takeout!
BBB: Tell us about your main character, Declan.
MW: Declan is a country boy. Born and raised in a small town with loving parents, he is down to Earth and understanding. He also believes in things that can't be explained.
MW: I have a couple of times, but it usually doesn't last long. I have very vivid and entertaining dreams. If I hit a wall on one project, it isn't long before the flow comes back or I have a new idea.
BBB: What are you currently working on?
MW: I just began working on a new idea I'm calling "Mental Notes" about a charmed knife. I don't want to say more than that until I work out the kinks.
BBB: How can readers discover more about you and your work?
MW: My website and Facebook pages have new information.
