This weeks author in the spot light is the creative caramel latte loving Cambria Hebert. best known for her Heven and Hell series and the Death Escorts series.
Cambria Hebert is the author of the young adult paranormal Heven and Hell series and the Death Escorts series. She loves a caramel latte, hates math and is afraid of chickens (yes, chickens). She went to college for a bachelor’s degree, couldn’t pick a major and ended up with a degree in cosmetology. So rest assured her characters will always have good hair. She currently lives in North Carolina with her husband and children (both human and furry) where she is plotting her next book.

Interview questions and answers :
Q: If you could be any paranormal creature what would you be?
A: Thats a hard question!! LOL. I don't really know... maybe a witch, because witches seem to have lots of powers all rolled into one body. I'm not sure I would want to be a shifter... I mean think of all the clothes I would ruin! lol. Yeah, so definitely a witch.
Q :Do you have any writing ritual? if so what?
A: YES! Before I sit down to write I run around my house with a pot on my head and sing really loudly. Then I go outside and roll in the yard. Okay, I don't do that. ha ha ha ha. The real answer is not really. That's terrible isn't it? I used to... a long time ago. I would get up in the morning, get my kids off to school, workout and then sit down to write. Now my days are similar but I find that marketing, promoting, etc. take up a huge chunk of my writing time. I would love to get back into some kind of routine or writing schedule, I think that would make life as a writer a lot easier.
Q:Who inspired you to become a writer?
A: I think lots of things inspired me to be a writer. A love of reading. A love of creativity and story telling. When I was very young I really loved to read RL Stine. I think he inspired me as well to eventually become a writer.
Q: What is the strangest place your writing has taken you.
A: Well... my writing takes me to strange places online... researching some odd things... I often wonder if the FBI will knock on my door asking about why I research things like what bodies look like that have been at the bottom of the lake.... ha ha ha ha.
Q:Traditional book or ebook?
A: Both!! I love them both. I think paperbacks are traditional, they are fun to hold and look at, like art pieces. But ebooks are great space savers and I love taking my reader on my treadmill, something I couldn't do with a paperback.
Q:Where do you get your writing inspiration from?
A:Everywhere! People, music, places, TV, I love to people watch in public, sometimes I get the best thoughts, ha ha ha. Music is a good one for me too and driving in the car is where I have gotten some of my best plot twists. I think when I drive I kind of zone out (Ahhhh! stay off the road here I come) and it makes room for the big ideas to come to me.
Q:What story/ character have you most enjoyed creating ?
A: This is really, really hard. I love all my characters and books. They are like children to me. The book I loved writing the most so far I think is Recalled. Dex was so easy for me to write and I just totally fell in love with him. But I think my most favorite character to write so far is Riley from the Heven and Hell series. Man, he cracks me up. Sometimes when I write him I would sit at the computer and laugh. My husband would say "Are you writing Riley again?" Ha ha ha. The answer is always yes.
