Chatting with Peggy Urry
Today Peggy Urry takes her turn in our author hot-seat.
ES: What do you like to read?
PU: I like to read anything with a good (and clean) romance, but my favorites are crime novels, historical/regency, and paranormal/fantasy/sci-fi.
ES: What genre do you write, and why?
PU: Fantasy/Sci-fi, because I get to make my own rules. I like things that are accurate and writing regency or historicals would mean a lot of research and areas I could go wrong.
ES: Introduce me to your favorite literary character (yours or anyone’s).
PU: Please let me introduce Jane Eyre. She endured much but remained compassionate and dedicated to doing the right thing.
ES: Tell me about your current work in progress.
PU: I actually am working on two projects right now. The first is a short story with a zombie theme (but really more romance than zombie). The second is a sci-fi novel about a man who comes to Earth with his family when he is a boy. His parents are bounty hunters who are easily distracted by the wonders they find on Earth and soon lose interest in returning.
PU: Last October I self-published The Archer’s Hollow. It’s a fantasy romance with villains to fear and a timid-turned courageous heroine to cheer for.
ES: Reading: Paper or Electronic? Why?
PU: This is a difficult one. I don’t mind reading on my iPad, and it’s really nice to have when I’m putting kids to bed. But, I love paper books, love to read them, have them sitting on my shelf, giving them as gifts, etc.
ES: Visit with Peggy on her blog. The Archer's Hollow can be purchased at Smashwords.
