Author Interview Fire on Ice Tour


The Book Gazette is hosting an interview with the author of “Fire on Ice” and “The Playmaker”, Dakota Madison. She’s done this amazing challenge, to write 12 books in 12 months, and she did it! Find out more about this amazing lady in the interview!

Author Interview

1) Which of both books is your favorite?
I think it’s difficult to pick a favorite book because they all have a special place in your heart. It would be like someone asking me to pick which of my bloodhounds is my favorite. I love them both for different reasons.
2) Who is your favorite character from the “Fire on Ice” series?
I’m in love with Kian Kavanagh. He’s actually the character I’ve written that seems to be the closest to my husband (but don’t tell him that!).
3) Which character would you probably get along with the most in real life? Which character would you not get along with?
I think I would get along well with Taylor Thompson. I was also a psychology major when I was an undergraduate (now I’m a psychology professor) and I think we’d have a lot to talk about. My least favorite character is Shawna. Of course, I made her unlikeable for a reason. She’s sort of a “villian” and easy to dislike.

4) Are you really going to write 12 novels in a year? Tell us about your project!
I already have! Following last year’s National Novel Writing Month, I decided to set a goal to write 12 novels in 12 months. I am currently in the process of finishing my 12th novel. Nine of them have already been published, two are on the way and one won’t be out until next year when I complete the other two books in the trilogy.
5) Are you working on another book at the moment?
I’m currently working on a contemporary romance called Community Service. I wasn’t planning on the love interest using a wheel chair but when he appeared, he used one! Then the task was to make him sexy, wheelchair and all. I’ve also had to do a lot of research on spinal cord injuries, which has been enlightening.
