Welcome, Christy Poff

CHASE FOR AN ANGEL by Christy Poff

Welcome, Christy! I'm so glad you could visit today. I've got lots of questions, so let's get started.

Where do you write?

I write wherever I can – at home, on the road if the highway’s smooth enough to get a decent thought down, doctor’s waiting rooms—you name it, I’ve probably written there.

How long does it typically take you to finish a writing project?

It truly depends on the story and whether the characters sing and I can get the major scenes coherently joined together though I have one that’s been sitting for awhile because I can’t get the continuity together on it.

When you’re not writing, what do you like to do?

I love going to Gettysburg—each time I see something new and it’s a great place to be at sunset into full dark. We travel and my husband and I are also involved with our local fire company.

Any advice for an author just starting out on the writer’s journey?

Don’t let anyone tell you that you cannot write. I listened to a “know it all” and wasted a good many years that I could have been writing and getting published. Let them offer advice but in the end, the author should have the final say on their work.

How did you meet your significant other?

We met one day at the fire house though he had a girlfriend at the time. After a no-holds barred game of football, I didn’t see him until several years later. We got together and the rest is history, so to speak.

In the house—shoes or bare feet?

Bare feet for sure

How many books have you written? Do you have a favorite?

About 40 so far and still going. As to favorites – they all are because each one is different yet a part of me.

Do you listen to music while you write?

I have 2 MP3 players which I listen to and then it’s Linkin Park, Nickelback, Michael Buble, Don Johnson, Brooks and Dunn, Gary Allan, Dierks Bentley, the Stones, the Beatles and….

Do you collect anything?

Lapel pins from where we go. I have a lot of Nascar ones from when we use to go to the races, fire service and Civil War. I also collect shot glasses as well.

Do you believe in extraterrestrial beings?

Of course – why are we so conceited to think we’re the only planet with intelligent life on it? Besides – I love Doctor Who and Torchwood plus Babylon 5.

Is there anything else you would like to share with us today?

I have several releases coming up in 2009. Check me out at either my journal page: and at Whisky Creek Press Torrid: Have a great day!

Thanks for visiting, Christy!
