Say Hello to Michelle Davidson Argyle, author of The Breakaway, Monarch and coming out later this year is Bonded. I have read The Breakaway and it is intense, action packed, kinda scary, and one of my favorite reads this year.
Read our little interview and then find out how you can win a copy of The Breakaway.
Michelle: Hanging out with my family and making food! We really like to cook and eat. :)Konstanz: Aside from writing, what is your favorite thing to do?
K: What inspires you to write?
M: I think I like to discover things about myself when I write. I like to create, most of all. The feelings I get when I finish a book are unmatched by anything - creating something so personal and involved.
K: Do you listen to Music while you write?
M: Sometimes. I have a soundtrack I've compiled of the most random music ever - folk, rap, heavy metal, but the reason I can listen to it while I write is because it's all my favorite stuff and I know it so well that I can tune it out, but my brain is still affected chemically by the upbeat tunes. They make me happy!
K: Out of all the stories you have written, which one is your favorite? Why?
M: I don't know if I can choose a favorite! I'd have to say Scales, which is a novella in my Bonded collection coming out this November, is the closest book to me. It really affected me in a lot of ways. The Breakaway is also very close to me because it has been in my life for over 17 years. It's very special to me.
K: Favorite Food?
M: Sushi! Or Indian. Or Thai. Hahaha. I really love ethnic foods. But I think if I had to choose a general food, it would be cheese.
K: Dream vacation?
M: Italy with my husband, in a villa, for three months.
K: If you could have any super power, which would it be? Why? What would you do with it?
M: I think it would be to turn invisible because sometimes I just want to be invisible and melt away whenever I need a true break. That sounds so depressing! Hahaha.
K: What advice can you give to aspiring authors?
M: Read a lot and write a lot and always stay with what you love. Dead writing happens when you try to please other people.
And now. . .
I am giving away one paper back copy of The Breakaway.
