Hey guys. So I have a special Indie author spotlight for you today. Our author is Izzy Szyn. I can’t wait for you to get to know her a little better. Make sure you check out her books and like and support her on social media. And, here we go!
Who are you and where are you from?
I’m Izzy, born and raised in Detroit, now live in Oklahoma City
I’m single, have a small dog named Misty. My mom and brothers still live in Detroit, I have a sister and niece that live here in OKC. Background? Umm as far as education? Graduated high school and went to business college for marketing
Do you write part-time or full-time, and if part-time are you working to build a full-time writing career? I sadly write part-time, wish I was writing full-time.
What kind of work do you do, if you have another job?
I work for ATT in their call center
What kind of car do you drive?
I don’t have a car, take bus or UBER.
What is your favorite cocktail? Food? (Please share the recipes)
Don’t drink alcohol, not that I’m against it, I don’t like it. I am an admitted Pepsiholic. Food love food. Fav foods are chicken, spaghetti and pizza. Oh and nachos. One of my fav recipes is one that I did by accident. One day I wanted to make Campbell’s chicken enchilada recipe, but I knew I wouldn’t want to roll the tortillas after I got home from work. So I threw a couple chicken breasts in a slow cooker, put in a can of cream of chicken soup, cup of salsa, and a can of water, sprinkled some chili powder in it. Let it cook and when I got home, I shredded the chicken. Now I had plans of pouring it over some tortilla chips but it was too soupy, so I put some shredded cheese in a bowl and ate it like soup. I call it my version of chicken tortilla soup.
What genres do you like to read? Do you have any favorite authors that you want to name?
I love erotic, the hotter the better. I also love Cynthia Sax, Lori Foster, Stella Cameron, Jd Robb, Jayne Ann Krentz and Diana Palmer just to name a few. Who or what inspired you to start writing? My friend Iris dared me to write almost three years ago. I had always had these stories in my head but I resisted, silly me.
Where do you write? (Paint us a picture…laptop or pc…inside or out…house or condo/apt…do you have music on…do you dance around (naked or clothed? lol)…do you talk out loud to your characters…do you use props…are the neighbors convinced your crazy?
I write wherever and whenever I can. In between phone calls, during breaks and lunches. When I’m home I sit on couch, with feet up and have something playing on my Amazon firestick. My dog on my chest (she is chihuahua/terrier) or laying next to me. No on props and my family thinks I’m nuts.
What is the craziest thing you’ve done in the name of research?
Look up how to create a blackout.
What genres do you or will you be writing for?
I write erotic romance, especially menages. 🙂 In both contemporary and paranormal. I would love to do an erotic suspense one day.
So I know some authors work on a book for years and it might change considerably from where it started, but the bones of it are still the same. And some authors never share their 1st book with anyone. What was the 1st book you wrote and is that the 1st one published or are you still hiding it somewhere?
The first book I wrote was Phantasy House and is with Hot Ink. It was based on the television show Big Brother with a little Bachelor thrown in.
Which of your characters is the most like you and how?
I think all the heroines have a little bit of me in them. We are all Pepsiholics, we love to be comfortable, have smartass qualities.
If I helped you hide the body, who would you kill and why? (Of course I meant one of your characters lol)
Hmmm, I work in a call center, that’s a loaded question. It would have to be someone that is rude, that thinks they are entitled just because they are breathing. And I have pond behind my apt.
What do you have coming up the rest of this year (book signings, groups, conventions, etc.)?
I’m going to a book July at Hard Rock Casino in Tulsa, OK July 29 🙂 It’s a few days before my birthday too. I’m hoping to go to Once Upon a Story in Frankenmuth MI in Aug. I’ve already signed up to do a signing Sept 2018 in Kansas City.
Any other books planned? When is (are) the next one(s) due for release?
I have a novella coming out in June, it’s a summer anthology with Candi Fox, Bobbi Romans and many others. Mine is going to be a FF. I also have my first MM vamp coming in the fall that’s going to be part of another boxed set. I’m hoping to release my next book in my Other Word Series soon.
