Interview Galaxy Express
I came across a blog post by Mrs. Giggles from December 2010 in which she discussed being “bored with things at the moment”:
Thanks so much for having us, Tammy. We're thrilled to be interviewed by Fallen Angel Reviews.To start, can you tell us a little bit about yourself?Well, we met seven years ago at an online writers workshop. Our partnership began on a lark with the short story The Pickle My Little Friend, a post WWII romantic film noir piece, which was published by The Wild Rose Press. We liked the results so well that we started another 'short story,' which turned into four completed novels, several novellas, and other wip's. You just never know where a spark will lead!
We write science fiction and paranormal romance. Currently, Sasha's Calling is our first, and only, release, but more works are in the process.
What is the hardest scene you have had to write (published or not)? Why?
One of our toughest scenes is from an as yet unpublished romantic thriller. The scene is an action/fight scene that takes place in an alley between our heroine and half a dozen attackers. Things get even more complicated when the hero shows up and she thinks she has to save him. When a hit man makes an appearance, pacing and tone shift gears to a slower pace, while maintaining tension. Information is integrated into the scene at that point, making it all the more difficult to keep tension high
Fight scenes are highly choreographed. Aside from making sure the action makes sense and tension remains strong, the reader mustn't get confused at any point, otherwise, the scene comes to a halt. Its painstaking work, but the results are so much fun.Full Interview
