The Author's Den - Chrys Fey

I'd like to welcome author, Chrys Fey to The Author's Den today!
Let's get to know a little bit about Chrys and her title, 30 Seconds

Tell us a little about yourself. 
I recently published, 30 Seconds, a romantic-suspense novella with The Wild Rose Press. I am a lover of rock music just like Dani Hart, my heroine in 30 Seconds. Whenever I’m writing at my desk, headphones are emitting the sounds of my musical muses. I live in Florida and I have four rescued cats.

Please share an enticing tag line of your current work with us.
When a woman finds herself in the middle of a war between a police force and the Mob, 30 SECONDS is a long time. 

If your book were made into a movie, who would you want to play your main characters? 
That’s tough because the actor I originally pictured as Blake Herro, the hero and police officer in 30 Seconds, was Paul Walker, who died last year. As for Dani Hart, I started to picture her as Rachelle Lefevre from the show “Under the Dome” while I was editing.

Do you prefer to write with a pen and paper, or computer? 
Both. I tend to write by a hand a lot, but I still can get into the zone when I’m at the computer.

What does your writing space look like?
My desk is currently jammed into the corner of my living room and it’s decked out in Halloween decorations.

What do you enjoy doing when you’re not writing? 
Listening to music, playing with my two nephews, and drawing fashion designs.

What did you want to be when you were twelve years old?
A writer! At the age of twelve I started to write my first novel. I ended up writing three full-sized books before I was seventeen and decided to rewrite them all the way at book one. I hope to share this series with everyone in the future.

Who in your life has been the most influential? 
My mom. I grew up watching her pen and illustrate children’s stories for me and my siblings. When I was six years old, it was clear to me that I wanted to be a writer just like her.

What is your favourite colour? 
Neon Green 

What is your favourite pleasure food? 
Homemade rice pudding.

What is your favourite season? 
Autumn; I love everything about it from the cool weather and changing leaves to Halloween.

What is your favourite television show? 

What is your favourite movie? 
It’s a tie between Little Women and Girl, Interrupted, which both star Winona Ryder.

Who is your favourite actor? 
Johnny Depp. He can literally play any role!

What is your favourite song? 
If you knew me, you’d know picking just one song is hard. But I’ll go with “The Kill” by Thirty Seconds to Mars, the inspiration behind the title for 30 Seconds and my favorite band. 

What is your favourite comfort clothing attire? 

What books might we find on your bedside table? 
The Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich. I am currently reading Fearless Fourteen.
