Author Interview: Sarah Brocias

Sarah Brocias
author, More Than Scars

Fill in the blank favorites – 

Type of hero. Oh, my favorite type of hero is the strong silent type! His actions, more than his words, speak for him. He has to be sweet underneath all that masculine exterior.

Type of heroine. \he has to be feminine. Most look at femeninity as a weakness (blushing for example) I see it as a strength. Yes, she can take care of herself, but she has just enough sweetness and innocence to have the ability to still be able to blush.

Most writers are readers. What are some of the books you have on your nightstand and/or on your "must read" list?

This is a tough question! Do you know the movie “Ever After”? Danielle is asked to choose a book and she says, “I could no sooner pick a favorite star from the heavens!”  THAT is how I feel!

What is your favorite genre to write? 

I write both Contemporary Romance and Paranormal. Paranormal is fun, but my heart lies with contemp!

Why do you choose to write clean/sweet romance?  Do you write steamy romance as well?  

I have read my fair share of steamy romance, but I choose to write clean. I guess it just comes down to my characters. Do I want a spark? Absolutely! But I want the main focus to be on the emotion, rather than the act.

What is the most rewarding thing about being a writer? 

When someone comes up to me or messages me and tells me how much they loved the story. When they ask for more. What an amazing feeling.  It means they fell in love with the characters while reading…just as I fell in love while writing them.

How many books have you written, and how many of those have been published? 

I have written many books and four of them are published! I am currently working on a novella, which I hope to have out within the next six months.

What are the elements of a great romance for you? 

The beginning stages of falling in love is the best! The glances…the touches…the butterflies in the tummy! In other words, the emotional foreplay. Love it!

Please share about your book 

I started writing  More Than Scars after I had a dream. (this happens often) I dreamt of a young woman in a big home, walking down a shadowy hallway toward a set of double doors. I felt her nervousness and anxiety. I never got to see what was behind the doors in my dream…so I wrote what I would have wanted to find behind them. Enter Liam Byrne! He was one of my most favorite characters to write so far!

If you could sum your main character into five words, what would they be?

Tenacious, Sweet, Optimistic, Hopeless Romantic

What are your hero and heroine of the story like? 

Liam, my hero, is wounded and stubborn and in absolute need of a kick in the pants. Nerissa, my heroine, is exactly who he needs. She is about as opposite in nature to him as you can get.

Use no more than two sentences. Why should we read your book?  

More Than Scars is a modern day Fairytale. Who doesn’t want to escape into a fairytale now and then?
