Please Welcome My Guest...

Please welcome my guest, Romance Author Sarah Hoss. Sarah grew up believing she could try anything and if she set her mind to it, she would succeed. Writing was no exception.  Reading the Outlander series made her fall in love with time travels and the historical places books could take her. Always a child with a vivid imagination, she realized as an adult, she could put her imagination to good use and began writing.


Good morning, Sarah. Tell us something about yourself both writing and non-writing related.

I have been a wife now for 17 yrs. and I am the mother to three children. A girl-16 and two boys- 14 and 11. As for writing, I have been writing now for 6 years and Heaven Sent is my first release.

Do you have a writing routine? Where do you usually do your writing?

I do all of my writing in the living room of my house. I wait until the husband and the kids have left for the day and then I begin. I like to have Twizzlers nearby if I can. They help me think. The T.V. is usually on but just for noise.

Hmm. I like Twizzlers. I might have to see if they help me think while I'm writing. Why do you write in the genre or sub-genre that you do? Any plans in the future to write in another genre?

I write in historical paranormal because it is what I like to read also. I love time-travels. And, I figure I live now a day romance, why not write about the past and learn something new. HEAVEN SENT is a contemporary romance that was started for a contest and I enjoyed writing it. I would like to write more in this genre, but will concentrate fully on historical paranormal.

How do you stay motivated when you have writer’s block or your muse won’t cooperate?

I have to take a step back. I will either work on another project or I will leave it alone for a day or two. Once, I watched Braveheart to get me back in the mood.

Taking a day break works for me too. I just have to be careful that it doesn't stretch longer than that. What is the strangest thing you have ever done in the name of research?

Most of my research has been for my novel. I went deer hunting and I have drank whiskey. Both instances were quite eye opening! LOL!

Deer hunting!  You're braver than I am. What’s the best writing advice I have ever been given?

I was advised to join Celtic Hearts Romance Writers. It is a group affiliated with RWA and they discuss everything Celtic. The information I have learned there and the friends I have made have been unbelievable. I highly recommend this group.  www.celtichearts.blogspot.com.

What do you like to do in your leisure time?

I love to go camping, to work in my garden or flower beds, and I like to read. My kids are in a lot of sports so I spend a lot of time watching them.

I like to garden too. Unfortunately, I don't have much of a green thumb. Tell us about your current release in a couple of sentences.

HEAVEN SENT is about undying love, faith, and the ability to forgive.

Can you tell us a little bit about your next project?

I have a novel coming out in January and I am currently working on the second book for that. It’s not a series, rather than there are three brothers and they each get their own book. The title of the novel coming out in January is Dreams of the Highlander and it is with Soul Mate Publishing.  

Congratulations on your second novel. Anything else you would like to share?

I want to thank you for having me here today. I hope everyone will enjoy Heaven Sent and I look forward to hearing from them. To keep up with what is coming next from me, I can be found at my website, www.sarahhoss.com.

  3. Jena- Thank you for stopping by! I have to say, besides being cold... deer hunting wasn't that bad. Boring, but not bad.
