Interview & Giveaway with author Regan Walsh

My Secret Romance is happy to have Regan Walsh on the blog today! Please give her a warm welcome and check out our interview.

Hi Regan! Welcome to My Secret Romance!
Thank you so much for having me here today.  

Did you create Whisper Cape as a stand alone or are you planning on extending it into a series?
I have to admit, I started out writing Whisper Cape as a stand alone, but when I got to the end, I decided to make it a series. My characters become so much a part of my life that I wasn’t ready to give them up. So, right now there are two more books in line.

There are more characters (within the Sectorium) that could get a story. Will we be seeing their stories anytime soon?
I don’t know about all the characters at the Sectorium, because there are always newcomers discovered. Some do make another appearance and I do have plans for one particular character. I can’t really say who, yet, as it is still mingling around in my head.

Why did you choose Oregon as your location for Whisper Cape?
I wanted some place beautiful, yet mysterious. The Oregon coast has it all, abundant forests, plush hillsides, sweeping cliffs and mysterious rolling fog. So is Northern California, which would have been easier for me to research,particularly since I live there, but I wanted a very small town, and Oregon seemed to fit better for that.

Have you written any other books? Or are you working on any at the moment?
I’ve written a young adult book, Allusive Aftershock. It is still in the editing stage and I am currently writing the second book in the Whisper Cape series, Reflections.

What inspired you to write Whisper Cape?
I can’t say it was one thing. I wanted to write something paranormal but wasn’t sure what. I thought about a ghost story since our house at the time seemed haunted and I do believe the ghost in the house had a large influence on my imagination, but I didn’t want to scare myself. My imagination can get pretty bizarre. I was always a huge fan of the TV series, Charmed. I didn’t want to write about witches, but their powers seemed really cool.

Who is your favorite character in Whisper Cape and why?
I would have to say Cael. He was easy to write because he is my perfect fantasy man.Gerry holds a close second, particularly since he is now my leading man in the second book. I like writing about men and writing from their POV. Maybe because I can make them be however I want them to be.

Who are some of your favorite authors?
Nora Roberts. Her Circle Trilogy is my favorite.
J.R.Ward
Richelle Mead
There are more, but these three stick out in my mind right now.

Have you always been a fan of paranormal?
Yes, actually ever since elementary school when I read The Littlest Witch.

Did you always want to be a writer?
No. When I was little, I always said I wanted to be a mommy when I grew up. So I did that first. I did like making up stories though, and I did write our sixth-grade class play. It was a flop.

Thank you, Regan, for taking the time out to answer our questions.
Thank you for giving me some time on your blog with this great interview.

The 6th grade class play was a flop? Oh Well! Such is the life of a dramatist. I know that you'll have more success as a novelist! LOL.

I love the book. Being familiar with the Oregon coastline, I can visualize much of the scenery described in the book. I think this would be a beautiful movie. Screen writers, where are you?

I absolutely love it when an author loves their characters and wants them to continue on . . . that is my favorite thing about a good series; the characters become friends and I want to know what will occur in their world next. Thank you for taking the time to share with us today and for the awesome giveaway opportunity.

I have the book - so don't enter me in the contest. But I really encourage anyone who hasn't read the book to do so! It is a keeper on my shelf for a re-read forever! I LOVE IT, and it is not to be missed!!

I agree with BudG - where are the Screen Writers?!? This would make the MOST amazing movie!!

Love you, Regan! Can't wait for the 2nd book in the series :D

I would love to win thie book, but if I don't I'll be visiting amazon! I lived in an old farmhouse I thought was haunted, wish it had inspired me a bit! The play was a flop, maybe that happened to set you on the correct path! Good luck with your next endeavor and thanks to both of you for the fun interview.

Great interview! Paranormal is my favorite. I do love other sub-genres, but this one takes the cake. I think it is nice to read a book from the hero's POV, not the heroine's. You don't see that too often. I love Richelle Mead. Her Georgina Kincaid Series was awesome! I especially liked how she ended the series. I haven't gotten to the Dark Swan series yet, but it is on my TBR.
Thank you for sharing and good luck on your upcoming releases! Also, thank you for the giveaway opportunity.

That story, originally entitled "Jim Smiley and his Jumping Frog" but now better known as "The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County," was reprinted nationwide, and called by Atlantic Monthly editor James Russell Lowell "the finest piece of humorous literature yet produced in America." In the spring of 1866 he was commissioned by the Sacramento Union newspaper to travel to the Sandwich Islands (now Hawaii) to write a series of letters reporting on his journey there.
