[Archive] #CMCon16 Spotlight & Interview with Chudney Thomas_1.21.16

The pretty formatted copy of this can be found on the Website.

Hey, gang! Happy New Year!

I’m very pleased to have Chudney Thomas with us today.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR, FROM THE AUTHOR:
I was born in Brooklyn, New York, raised on the island of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. According to my father, I learned to read at three and wouldn’t allow him to skip a page of a story. I grew up raiding my mother’s stash of books and my Aunt Patsy’s extensive library. There, I developed my love of literature, and specifically romance.

Books transported me to different worlds, and encouraged me to learn about different cultures, continents, expanding my horizons. I currently live in Central Florida with my family and our interesting pet pooch Maya.

I write contemporary and paranormal romances with a splash of my Caribbean heritage in the settings. There are so many wonderful aspects of the islands, from the beautiful beaches to the fascinating myths that inspire my works.  I hope to one day be able to share them with you!

Keep up with Chudney online at her website, on Facebook, on Twitter, and on GoodReads.

Chudney is the creator of the CENTRAL FLORIDA PACK series and some other anthologies. Let me get you caught up…

Get down and dirty with this sexy blue collar bundle featuring seven original contemporary romance novellas that range from sweet to sizzling.

All Emerson Knapp wantsis everything he shouldn’t have. When all his secrets come to a head, the only question left is how much he’s willing to lose.

MARKED FOR LOVE - Anna J. Stewart
Overworked pub manager Regan Murphy is about to have her hands full with Lantano Valley newcomer and tattoo artist Brodie Crawford: a sexy single father who is far too distracting.

KNOTTY MAGIC – Jodi Redford
Hormones be damned, Tully Eastwood won’t succumb to her attraction for a sexy lumberjack—until she finds herself trapped overnight with him in the woods.

AGAINST THE WALL – Amie Stuart
Construction Supervisor Lexi Kimball is the one person everyone loves to hate. Everyone except a sexy foreman with an adventurous streak, that is.

UNASHAMED — Leah Braemel
Two sexy construction workers double Hayley O’Connell’s fun. But can they convince her the fun should last forever?

LOVE IN AN ELEVATOR – Chudney Thomas
Mica Lawson is a failure and a flake; at least according to her family. Then one stalled elevator, and a sexy repairman, change her life.

Sound great, yeah!?

How about we find out a little bit more about Chudney…

LITERAL ADDICTION: Hi, Chudney! Thank you so much for being here today!

Chudney: Hello and thank you for having me!

LITERAL ADDICTION: I always start by getting to know our guest V.I.P author a little bit better…

1) Can you tell us 3 things about yourself – no matter how random - that we couldn’t find out easily on the Internet?

Chudney: Three things? They are about to be really random. 1) I love Roti. 2) My friends say, I’m resourceful . 3) According to my co- Worker when I get really excited my accent becomes more pronounced.

Ps. this is a really good question to ask others cause I now have a few answers that I keep to myself as reminders and that make me smile. :)

2) What are 2 things that always make you smile, and 2 things that never fail to piss you off?

Chudney:
2 Things that always make me smile:
A beautiful day
A great giant hug
2 Things that piss me off
People cutting in line
Me or someone else failing to follow through on a promise ( I understand if it’s something that is impossible or life gets in the way but if you don’t communicate I get mad and if I’m the one who fails I’m really upset with myself.)

3) Was there anyone (or anything) that was directly involved with your drive to become an author?

Chudney: My mother, my father and my aunts. My husband who makes sure I always have a functioning laptop. Let’s just say my family in general. They fed my love of reading and stories and though they may not always understand what it takes but they always support me.

4) Let’s play a game… You are the heroine of the last book you read, being chased by the antagonist of the one before, and end up in the arms of the hero from the one before that. What’s the scenario?

Chudney: So you just caught me in a re-reading phase. This time it’s Nalin Singh’s Psy Changeling series. I would be the Heroine Zaira Neve being chased by Ming Le Bon and the disease eating away at the net to end up in the arms of the most dangerous Telekinetic of the PSY Councillor Kaleb Krychek causing earthquakes during certain activities.

5) If you could spend the day with anyone – alive, dead, fictional, etc – with whom would you want to spend it, and what would you want to do?

Chudney: This is so unfair because really I want a tea party with Cleopatra, The Queen of England, Nelson and Winnie Mandela, Queen Noor, Carib Chief Joseph Chatoyer, Jane Austen, Shakespeare, Dereck Wallcott and Jean Rys.  Sorry can’t follow directions on that one.

6) What’s a typical writing day look like for you?


Chudney: I have no typical writing day. I work a forty hour a week job, with a family. So I steal time when I can. Sometimes the hubby has to go into work early so I sit in the car for an hour and write/edit. I aim for two hours in the evening but sometimes the flesh is weak even though the spirit is willing. I’m really fortunate that on Saturdays family and life permitting that I have an awesome friend in Lori Sjoberg who cracks the whip and lets me invade her house to wirte for a few hours.

7) If we were to check out your DVR, what are some of the shows we’d see?

Chudney: No DVR but I do have Amazon Prime and NetFlix and Youtube. Right now it’s Luther, Jessica Jones, Falling Skies, Sex in the City ( my aunt was visiting from England and we had a marathon), Vikings and anything by Paul Keens Douglas ( I grew up listening to him on the radio back home and his stories still have the power to make laugh.

8) Was there any specific inspiration behind the creation of the CENTRAL FLORIDA PACK series?

Chudney: I went to an animal park where they had wolves, florida panthers and gators right next to each other and thought to myself what would werewolves be doing in Orlando? At that point it was just a thought in the back of my mind I didn’t write Ria’s story until much later.

9) How many books do you ultimately have planned for the series?

Chudney: Currently six. As I write more people show up so it may expand.

10) What types of scenes do you enjoy writing the most (love, action, dialogue, etc) and why?

Chudney: I love dialogue. The things people say to each other can be revealing as can the body language.

11) What was the most challenging thing about creating your series?

Chudney: Keeping track of everyone in it. So you don’t give them the wrong hair color or having them in two places at once.

12) Has there been a specific moment in your career thus far that you are particularly proud of?

Chudney: Hitting publish on Full Circle. I was deathly afraid to take the leap but I did.

13) What’s up next for Chudney Thomas? Anything else in the works – or available – outside of what I covered above that you can share with us?

Chudney: The sequel to Full Circle will be out in February. Edits have taken way longer than I anticipated but it will be out.

14) Anything else coming up that you want to be sure your readers and fans know about – online events, signings, conventions (outside of Coastal Magic), etc?

Chudney: This Year I’m slowing it down a bit and regrouping. I’ll be at RT in Vegas at the Rio Hotel & Casino, April 12 to 17.  But for now that’s it.

15) Is there anything special you’d like to say to your readers while we have you here today?

Chudney: I would love to say thank you for taking a chance on me and that I do appreciate it when you simply say hello or take the time to ready my book.

LITERAL ADDICTION: Chudney, thank you SO much for being with us today. I really hope that I’ve turned some new readers on to your work, and I hope that people will go out, pick up, and love your books. I’m super excited to see you again in February. :)

Chudney: Coastal Magic is one of my favorite cons. I’m so happy I get to see you and everyone else again. Thank you for having me!
