Interview with Ellie Potts
Somebody told Ellie Potts you had to be rich to be eccentric otherwise you were plain crazy. She set out to prove them wrong doing things she was told she couldn’t do like dressing for pirate and Renaissance fairs , get her stories published, playing video games , planning to survive a zombie apocalypse, and other antics most women stay away from.
She is also a Whovian, Browncoat, Star Wars addict, and collector of arcane knowledge. Now she lives in California’s Central Valley where most of her stories and books take place. Her and her husband are owned by their attack Bugg, and her two red eared slider turtle minions who live in the backyard.

What would you say is your interesting quirk that only happens when you are writing?
I have my playlists I listen to depending on scenes I am writing.
What was one of the most surprising things you learned in writing your books?
Writing is hard. Story ideas are easy, but getting the story right is hard.
Where did you get ideas for your books?
Some come from dreams, others daydreams, some just what ifs.
Out of all the books you have written which is your favorite and why?
My upcoming Awaken the Elements. It is my first book I wrote back about 12 years ago. And it is almost finally done to be put out.
What do you think makes a good story?
Great characters you can relate to, and fun plots.
Who are some of your favorite Authors?
I have too many to name. Recently I am on an Indie Author kick. I love all the new ideas!
If you could pick one actor to play a character in your book in the movie version, who would it be?
I can’t think of it. I want them to be relatively new actors.
Who are some of the people that influenced your love of writing?
Stephen King, Charlaine Harris , Ronald Dahl, Judy Blume, Dr. Seus s , Beverly Cleary, AVI, and so many others .
What kind of T V shows do you like and do you find that as a Paranormal Writer that you gravitate toward True Blood, Vampire Diaries, Lost Girl and others that center around Preternatural or Supernatural Creatures?
I am a paranormal/sci-fi TV Junky I watch most of them.
How are your Supernaturals different from the traditional mythology?
I am working with werebears, which you don’t see much. There is a slight twist on my vampires .
What is your view on the Paranormal “Craze ” that’s going on, do you feel that it is a fad that people will look back on and laugh or a lasting interest that will birth classics to come ?
No like all genres people will always like paranormal. Just like how people like mystery, horror, ect. The best part of the paranormal is there is still lots of different stories to be told.
What other genres do you write?
I write a little of everything, horror, science fiction, fantasy romance and erotic fantasy.
If you had one piece of advice for an aspiring Author what would it be?

The cubs creamed, and Les lie could see that his body had enough and decided on changing. “This is going to get dirty.”
“Don’t panic,” he said, shooting her a quick look, trying not to keep his attention off the cub too long.
“Too late,” she said, trying to calm her heart. All she needed to do was make herself a big enough target.
He came to her, and held her face in his big hands . The electricity flared. Her magic started to break through, which happened when her emotions were high. “Breathe,” he whispered to her.
“I know what happens to the newly changed. They’re hungry.”
He nodded, and leaned his forehead to hers . “I can’t stop it. This is going to be ugly, just close your eyes okay.”
She did, but she could hear everything, all his bones breaking and uniting themselves together. The sound was in-between a dog drinking water, and a messy eater eating something very gross . His screams turned to roars . Finally, after all the bones we reknitted, the cub gave a roar that shook the small room they were trapped in. Nathan turned, keeping his back pressed to her, blocking her view. She did what she believed was the stupidest move ever, but couldn’t help herself; she wrapped her arms around him. The flare of the electricity that entered her body, made her weak, and she leaned her head against the back of his neck.
The more skin that she pressed against him, the more of the electrical feeling zapped through her. But then something else happened. Her magic opened, but it didn’t go wild. Instead, it touched Nathan’s beast. His power flowed from him, mingling with hers . For a second, they were nothing but magic. And then as one they looked at the cub, angry and hungry as its lowly advanced on them fully in bear form. As one, they willed it to sleep. And it did just that. It lay down in the water and went to sleep, the bear body slowly turning back to human.
Nathan turned in her arms , and moved his face in close to hers . She thought he would lick her cut again, but instead he pressed his lips against hers , kissing her hard. Her arms moved up to circle around his broad neck, as he kissed him back with feverish want. He pressed his body against her, hard, ready. She could sense his need, his want, and it matched her in every way. Her hands had tangled themselves in his long, blondish brown hair when he finally broke the kiss .
