AN INTERVIEW WITH

DIANNE DUVALL New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author

BTS: What made you decide to become a writer? I’ve always been an avid reader and, likewise, have always had a very vivid imagination. I actually wrote my first romance when I was twelve or thirteen: a Young Adult Historical Romance. And I wrote poetry in high school. But I didn’t consider writing as a career until college. I originally majored in journalism, but soon discovered two reasons that it wasn’t for me. One, I’m shy, which tends to make interviewing complete strangers uncomfortable. And two, I found all of the rules of writing nonfiction just too constrictive. I wanted the freedom writing fiction would allow and also craved those happily-ever-afters I enjoyed so much in the romance novels I read every chance I could get. So I changed my major to English, studied creative writing, gave my imagination free reign, and eagerly lost myself in my favorite genre.
