 Q & A with Melissa Haag

1) Did your experiences in life have an impact (big or small) in your writing?

Absolutely!  Experiencing life’s highs and lows enables me to pour that emotion into the scenes I write.

2) What advice would you give to your teenage self?

Do it!  Do it all! I was too content to let the wind take me where it would.  I would tell myself it’s okay to be more driven to find what I really wanted to do.  (And to not listen to everyone else!)

3) For your book, Hope(less), how much story line came to you early on during prepping and how much came along the way? 

I come up with the best ideas, start writing, and then the characters wreck it all!  They become willful and start telling their own story as if I hadn’t just spent countless hours daydreaming the plot I wanted.

4) What are your plans for the Judgement of the Six series?

Mostly world domination, mayhem, some tears…you know, the good stuff.  The three books I’ve written so far have been building up the world while showing you the lives those girls have led.  It’s all important to the overall plot.

5) Do you plan on expanding to other genres?

I really like paranormal.  Real life is real enough for me.  However, I won’t say never…maybe someday, I’ll venture into contemporary.  We’ll see.  

Right now, in my works in progress, I am bouncing around between YA, NA, and Adult within Paranormal.  I’ll have a pen name for the adult but think I might keep YA and NA under my name.  It’s another we’ll see.

Thanks for the great questions!
