Hey guys! Here's a short Q&A with Shannon Greenland, author of The Specialists series! It's one of my ultimate guilty pleasure reads!!!
Morning person or night owl?
Any nicknames we might come across if we looked into your past?
Yep. My family and some childhood friends call me Nay Nay.
Did you base any of your characters on real people?
All my characters are built on bits and pieces of actual people I meet. I take a little bit of this person and a little bit of that person and combine it with some fictitious details and wa-la a character is born.
Rejection letters from publishers --save them or throw them?
Save them definitely. I used them as a learning tool. Also, I keep detailed files of everything so I can reflect back and remember things.
How are you and GiGi alike? How are you different?
We’re both low in the common sense arena, both sometimes a little too smart for our britches and definitely klutzy!
What’s the most interesting comment you have received about your books?
I love fan mail that comes in capital letters and lots of exclamation points. It shows the readers’ enthusiasm. Like: OMG, I FREAKING LOVE YOUR STUFF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Lol, I love that!)
