Darklight On...Joanne Vogel: Q & A

Today's Darklight On... is with DarkSider Joanne Vogel. Welcome Joanne!! 

How did you come to write speculative fiction? What attracted you to the genre? 
I was attracted to speculative fiction because it is exciting and engaging and when I was reading it I found myself going of in tangents in my mind, creating my own scenarios and offsets of characters. It got to a point where I spent more time doing this than reading! So I had to write!

Are you a plotter? Pantser? Or somewhere in-between? 

I wish...I WISH I was a plotter, but I am a pantser. I do plot in my head but not on paper.

Who are you favourite authors? 

Pretty much anyone who writes romance! They are all good. I can't even pick a favourite.

What are you currently reading? 

Errr, I've been slack recently. I have a fine at the library *moves uneasily in chair* and I need to sort that out. So I'm not reading anything at the moment.

Do you have a favourite spec fiction movie or TV series?

True Blood and True Blood - apart from True Blood I actually don't watch much television. 

Do have a favourite of your characters? 

Well yes, my favourite is probably my main character in my main WIP - a woman who is genetically engineered.

What are you working on currently? 

I've been working on two WIP's, doing pieces of work on each when I can and I plan to start something with my CP very soon.

What is your favourite part of the process of writing? 

My favourite part is the imagination - I absolutely love it and prefer being entertained by my own brain activity it to any television show etc. It is an amazing experience.

~Thanks Joanne, and apologies for the late post everyone. I had godmother duties :)
