Michelle Roth is a novelist from Los Angeles, California. When she’s not disappearing into foreign lands, or making two perfect strangers that she invented fall in love, she’s probably curled up somewhere with a glass of wine and a good book.

In her spare time she is typically hanging out with her awesome boyfriend and their two equally awesome cats. She likes taking road trips to nowhere in particular, cooking elaborate meals then making other people do the dishes, and being nerdy on the internet.

Q: Tell me about a typical day in the life of Michelle Roth?

A: That really all depends on the day. In addition to being a writer, I also work a regular full time job. If I'm not at writing or at work, I'm either spending time with my boyfriend and our cats, or dead asleep.

Q: How do you come up with the ideas for your stories?

A: Some of it is loosely based on reality, but a lot of my ideas come from random places. It could be a song on the radio, a dream I had, or a phrase. It could come from anywhere, so I tend to have a notepad with me at all times.

Q: Can you name some of your influences?

A: When I was 14 or 15 my grandmother gave me a trash bag FULL of those old Harlequin Romances. I've been addicted to the romance genre ever since. That definitely influences my writing more than anything. Over the years, my tastes have definitely matured, though. I love authors like Jaci Burton, Maya Banks, Susan Mallery, Nora Roberts... This list could really go on for days.

Q: What are you favorite type of characters to write?

A: I love writing emotionally honest characters. I can identify with that particular trait so it's easier for me to tap into the type of dialog they might have with one another. It's so gratifying to write that moment when they lay it all out on the table.

Q: Is there a particular scenario or interaction that you find difficult to write? How do you overcome that?

A: I find it particularly difficult to transition my characters through long stretches of time. How many times can you say, “And two days later..” because eventually you kind of have to in order to create a believable time line. We know that they eat, sleep and use the bathroom. For the most part I try not to write about those times unless they're central to the story. None of them are particularly fun things to read about, ya know?

Q: Where would you like to go with your writing? If you could write in any genre, what would it be?

A: Six months ago, I wasn't even sure I could write a book. I'm a published author now! The best part? I'm writing exactly what I want to write. Right now I'm focusing on building a fan base before I look to the future for new and exciting challenges.
