Storm Grant - Literary Nymphs Author Interview
What would you like new fans to know about you?
That I’m funny. Also young and beautiful. But I’m not lying about the funny.
In your fantasy world who or what would you be?
Funny you should ask. Years ago I was a big fan of the Highlander franchise—the one with the immortals. And then I fell for vampires. So in my fantasy world, I’m an immortal who’s first death was to be turned by a vampire. So I can go out in the sunlight, and eat real food, but also… wait. Should I be talking about my fantasies on the internet?
What is your favorite genre to read?
I read across genres because I’m looking for humor. I’ve read all 38 Discworld books, and am up to Lean Mean Thirteen in the Stephanie Plum series.
I’ll read mainstream if it’s humorous, and my favorite book of a few years ago was a thriller called Beat the Reaper about a Mafia hitman turned doctor. It has subtitles the same way Burn Notice use voiceovers: When you’re building a bomb…
My favorite books of all time are Good Omens by Neil Gaiman & Sir Terry Pratchett, Lamb, by Christopher Moore, and Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins.
If it’s funny, send it my way.
Oddly, I don’t read a lot of romance. Why that’s odd, is that I’m a huge fan of the RWA, and a member of several chapters. I can’t recommend the RWA highly enough. When we founded (I was there but I didn’t do anything much), the Rainbow Chapter, I fully expected to get flack. But the RWA is now a progressive, professional organization, and since the paperwork was filled out correctly, we got our charter on the first try.
Do you have a favorite quote?
I collect them. I have a document I started years ago called “Clever Things,” which has grown to 31 pages. It’s a single-space list of all the puns and jokes and witticisms I’ve come up with or come across over the years. I guess one of my favorites is
Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I’m not sure about the former. ~ Albert Einstein
What can we look forward to in the future from you?
I’ve just sent the first draft of a new story, tentatively titled FEW ARE CHOSEN off to beta. It’s a charming first-love story about an apprentice warrior who meets his match in an apprentice wizard. Together they defeat a demon and fall in love. It’ll finish up around 12,000 words and I’ve promised it to Riptide Publishing, if they’ll have me.
