Interview with Author Misa Buckley
It is a great honor to interview Misa Buckley, Author of the Amazing Grace series of stories.
What does the title of the series signify?
Amazing Grace is a series of shorts – last “episode”, Grace got herself into trouble, requiring her lover, Benedict, and her friends, Emery and Charity, to rescue her.
What prompted you to write in this genre and who or what inspired you to?
Sci fi romance is my favourite genre to write. The particular inspiration for the Amazing Grace series was a scene in Stargate SG-1 (there are actually a LOT of references in the stories)
What are the most important attributes to remaining sane as a writer and do your characters reflect some of these attributes?
Writing itself keeps me sane… to a degree. There’s a lot that can distract you – other authors getting deals, awards, etc etc – but every person’s path is different. It’s best (though hard!) to not compare yourself to others.
What kind of research did you have to do for the novel that was different from others?
I did absolutely no research whatsoever. There wasn’t even any plotting done. I literally made the story up as I went along, but keeping a bible meant I could tie in loose ends and ideas.
Thank you so much Misa for agreeing to this interview!
The latest “episode” in the Amazing Grace series, Saving Grace, is now available from the following retail outlets:
