Blog Tour + Author Interview & Giveaway: Fatal Threat by Marie Force

Welcome to today’s stop on the blog tour for Fatal Threat by Marie Force! We have a writing-themed Q&A with the New York Times & USA TODAY bestselling author!

Author Interview: Marie Force

Q: How did you come up with your characters? How did you choose them? Did they come up even before you started writing them?

MF: Some of them come to me before, others during. I’m not really sure where they come from. I’m just glad they keep showing up, demanding I tell their stories!

Q: Which writing book/course taught you the most about writing?

MF: didn’t read a lot of writing books (I think I’ve read one–Stephen King’s On Writing) and I didn’t take a lot of writing classes. The one thing that really helped me to figure it out was writing more books, perfecting the craft, going back and applying lessons learned to earlier books, etc. There is really no substitute for hands on the keys, butt in the seat and just DOING IT. Over and over and over again until you get it right. And read a lot in the genre you are targeting. That also helps as long as you make sure your books are uniquely your own.

Q: When you start writing a series, do you know how far it will go or do the characters take over and that decides how many books will get written?

A: No, I never know how a series or even a book will unfold. I don’t plan or plot anything. I just make it up as I go along. 🙂 As far as how long a series will go, my feeling is that as long as the readers are still loving it and showing up in droves to get the new book and it’s still fun for me, no end in sight. All my current series meet that criteria, so no end in sight for any of them.

Q: What do you do to relax after meeting your writing goal for the day?

MF: After I finish working for the day, I like to chill with my family and/or read a good book, float in the pool or sit by the fire pit and do nothing.

With a killer on the loose, it’s the worst time to be on lockdown…

It’s just another day at the office for Washington Metro Police lieutenant Sam Holland when a body surfaces off the shores of the Anacostia River. But before Sam can sink her teeth into the new case, Secret Service agents seize her from the crime scene. A threat has been made against her family, but nobody will tell her anything—including the whereabouts of her husband, Vice President Nick Cappuano.

This isn’t the first time the couple’s lives have been at risk, but when a bombshell from Sam’s past returns to haunt her, she can’t help but wonder if there’s a connection. With a ruthless killer out for vengeance, and Nick struggling to maintain his reputation after secrets from his own past are revealed, Sam works to tie the threat to a murder that can’t possibly be a coincidence. And she has to get it done before her husband’s career is irrevocably damaged…
