Emily Goodwin Interview
What do you do when you’re not writing about the end of days or things that go bump in the night?
If I’m not writing, then I’m chasing around a toddler, taking care of my horses, or working on a new costume (I love cosplay!). Occasionally, I sit down and watch Supernatural and Arrow and sometimes sleep.
Tell me about your latest book, something unusual if possible.
Anything in particular that you want to say about it? Where did you draw the inspiration from? Favourite characters? Tell us something unusual.
My latest book is the first part in an erotic serial called TEASE ME. It’s contemporary suspense romance. I write sexy romance as well as horror (but my horror has some pretty smexy scenes too). This book was very fun to write!
**Do not read this book if you do not like fast paced, erotic plots, forward thinking women, dominant and tattooed Latin men, and dirty sex. Lots of dirty sex. Extra panties are recommended. Prudes be warned: this book is HOT. For readers 18+**
What are you working on next and when can we expect it?
Beyond the Sea-a NA paranormal romance about mermaids that is coming out April 21st.
What makes you want to write about dystopia/the apocalypse and or horror?
I like horror because I like pushing the limits on what human nature can withstand. While I love the blood and gore side too (former nurse here, there isn’t much that grosses me out when I’ve been there, done that when it comes to wounds/infections/bodily fluids in real life), what I like best about this genre is seeing how my characters react when pushed to their breaking point. In a post-apoc setting, there are no governing rules. People are really at their own mercy, and their very humanity is tested.
Are you a prepper with an apocalypse plan in place, or are you just going to wing it?
I’d be a bigger prepper if my husband weren’t so practical! I make sure we have enough food and water in case of a “legit” emergency, like a bad snowstorm. I do own several weapons and keep a stock of extra ammo just in case. I also have horses. That counts for something right? A good mode of transportation if we can’t get gas for cars!
What’s your apocalypse/horror song?
Oh gosh, I can’t pick one. My writing playlist has everything from Shake it Off to Coming Undone. It’s very random.
I believe that the horror genre is way more accepting of female horror writers now, what’s your take on it?
I’ve been well received in the horror world. I have had more than a handful of people say things like “this book was surprisingly good because it was written by a woman.” Not everything was spoken as an insult, but more of a cultural norm to be surprised women can write gory horror. I’ve had people in real life tell me they are surprised I write anything remotely dark because of how I look, which is totally mind boggling to me. I never knew horror authors were supposed to look a certain way until I became one and was told I didn’t “look” like one.
