Minx Malone Tells All
July 16, 2007 | Interviews
ST: Hi, Minx Malone, welcome and thank you for visiting with us this week.
MM: Thanks so much for having me Sloane!
ST: Tell us a about yourself.
MM: This is hard because I never know what to say! I live with my husband in the Washington D.C. area with our three year old son. I’m kind of boring really. I live vicariously through my characters! Although I do have varied interests such as astronomy, Egyptology and of course writing!
ST: You are anything but boring, Minx. Your debut novel, THE DJINNI, looks to be an exciting hot read. Please tell us about the book.
MM: THE DJINNI is about an ordinary woman who gets an extraordinary present one day. I think we’ve all had times when we’re plodding through the routine of our lives and wishing something exciting would happen. The heroine of my story, Ally, is an accountant whose boyfriend cheated on her. She lives alone now since the grandmother who raised her passed away and she’s not the most social person. Then she receives her grandmother’s last bequest, an antique ruby ring. Unbeknownst to her, she’s now carrying around Damien, an Egyptian prince now bound to her.
ST: How did you come up with the story line?
MM: I had a very vivid dream about a Djinni *wink* and just had to write something down. Somehow all the detail such as his Egyptian heritage, the Magi and the curse just seemed to spring from my brain later.
ST: And where can we buy THE DJINNI?
MM: My book was available at Triskelion Publishing. Since they’ve closed I need to find it a new home. lol. It wasn’t available in print, only e-book format but I actually prefer ebooks now, especially for the more erotic titles. No one can see the cover of what I’m reading and since I’m using my PDA, most people just think I’m updating my calendar or reading email! Keeps the nosy people away…
ST: I love it! Thanks so much for being here. Will we see you bright and early tomorrow>
ST: Until then…
