1. Tell us a little about yourself.
name is Linda Andrews and by day, I’m a scientist for a local water
company and by night I write Science Fiction, Apocalyptic horror, and
romance novels. I read pretty much anything genre fiction although my
favorite are mysteries and romance, and I love zombies.
2. When did you start writing, and why?
started writing when the paranormal line that I read from Harlequin was
cancelled. At the time, I was commuting 90 minutes one way to my job
and used to write on tape. Now, writing is a passion that I can’t give
up. Every book is different and I learn something new.
3. What do you write, and why? What do you enjoy about what you write?
write the Science Fiction because as I’m reading for my job, I
encounter intriguing information that raises those important what-if
questions. I write the apocalyptic/horror novels because I can kill lots
of people and not have to worry about going to jail. Okay, not really
(maybe a little), I consider them exercises in survival. If this
happened, what would I do? And I write romances because I am a romantic
at heart and like to give everyone a happy ending (if they deserve it)
4. What is your latest book or series? Any forthcoming books?
latest apocalyptic series is the Hadean series. It’s about the science
we’re using to change our food forcing an evolutionary pathway for
humanity and the planet.
5. "Welcome To My Worlds": Tell us a little about the world of your latest book or series.
is set in Phoenix, Arizona in the current times. I enjoy the challenge
of setting books in the desert as so many resources the rest of the
country take for granted, such as water, are not readily available. The
stories follow a group of 6 people as they struggle to survive, but one
of them is infected. Most reviewers consider it a bit like 28 Days Later
and the Crazies.
6. Introduce us to some of your characters. What do you like about them?
Ellen who is a mother of 2. Her sister Rosa, who is a scientist working
on figuring out what is going on and if there is a solution. Their
cousin Raine who was a junior in high school when the world goes to pot.
There is Drew who is a recovering drug addict, who has to put Ellen and
her family above his addiction. There is Brent who is crazy but
functional until he no longer is, this provides an inside look into the
workings of the faceless masses who are infected. What I like about
them, is that they don’t have any special skills and are just everyday
people, who need each other to survive.
7. A fun fact you would like your readers to know about you or your book.
I like my characters so much I have a hard time torturing them, er, I
mean writing their story when i know bad things are going to happen :D
