An Interview with Natalie-Nicole Bates
By Holly Hewson for The Romance Studio
HH: Natalie-Nicole, thank you so much for talking with us at TRS. Your featured book is See Me. Where did the idea for this thrillingly unique story?
NNB: With a paranormal story, I’m always looking for a different angle. I don’t write vamps, shifters, weres or Zombies -- they’ve all been done, and done well. I decided to write about a select group of people who are eternal. Carly and Daniel’s story seemed the right place to start.
HH: What do you like about Carly and what's her greatest strength?
NNB: Carly is a very down to earth old fashioned girl who carries great perception and physical strength. She can fit in very easily with people. She puts others before herself.
HH: What do you like best about Daniel and what makes him different than most heroes?
NNB: Daniel is very reserved. He’s not a flashy, gregarious character. He’s quiet, he keeps to himself. His only real obsession is his love for Carly.
HH: How did you go about creating the world where their story takes place?
NNB: I kept this story set in an idyllic little town where my characters blend in seamlessly. I like to think of my setting as an additional character.
HH: What did you enjoy most about writing this story?
NNB: I loved writing this story. It came so naturally it almost seemed like it wrote itself. It is first and foremost a love story, but there is darkness with it as well, and a touch of horror at the very beginning.
HH: What else do you have in store for lucky readers?
NNB: I just finished a new paranormal called Remember The Stars. Soon I plan to start an erotic contemporary.
HH: What are you most excited about in your career right now?
NNB: I’m enjoying being able to write what I’m really passionate about -- especially the darker paranormals. I love being able to infuse a bit of horror here and there to enhance the story.
HH: What are you looking forward to most in the rest of 2012?
NNB: The remainder of 2012 will be about focusing on promoting SEE ME, and hopefully completing a new story.
HH: What are you reading at the moment?
NNB: I’m currently reading the newly released James M Cain’s Cocktail Waitress. Apparently this was a long lost and now found manuscript. I love James M Cain, and the writing of the 1930’s and 1940’s.
HH: Do you have a writing hero and if so, who would it be?
NNB: No, my writing heroes change from mood to mood, season to season. I’m always looking for the next greatest thing, the next fabulous book.
HH: Thank you!
