Critically acclaimed author of historical and paranormal romance, Alix Rickloff’s family tree includes a knight who fought during the Wars of the Roses (his brass rubbing hangs in her dining room), and a soldier who sided with Charles I during the English Civil War (hence the family's hasty emigration to America).
Her previous novels include the Bligh Family series (Kensington), the Heirs of Kilronan trilogy (Pocket), and, as Alexa Egan, the Imnada Brotherhood series (Pocket). Her latest historical, SECRETS OF NANREATH HALL (William Morrow), is set to release in the Summer of 2016.
Q: How long does it take you to write a book?
A: I try to write one to two novels per year, but that schedule can change as contracts dictate.
Q: Have you always wanted to be a writer?
A: Yes, and I’ve been one since about the fourth grade. It just took me a little longer to become a published writer. J
Q: Who are some of your favorite authors?
A: The list is an extremely long one, but I have to give top billing to Mary Stewart, Jane Austen, Lois McMaster Bujold, and Robin McKinley. Four very different genres with four very different styles, but they are all amazing!
Q: What are your hobbies?
A: I don’t have time for hobbies, but I do enjoy reading and curling up on the couch with my family and a big bowl of popcorn to watch movies. I can justify both those activities as muse feeding.
