Writer Wrangler: Shiloh Walker


Talk Supe: How did the story for STOLEN start? 
Shiloh: Something I saw on Twitter... :) I can't remember her name, but an author had somebody pretending to be her, and bam, there was the idea.

Talk Supe: The story is about abuse and the repercussions of having such a violent and traumatic childhood and Shay's internal conversations were spot-on in my opinion. Did you interview people who went through similar experiences to flesh our Shay's character better? 
Shiloh: No... not exactly. I've read about abuse, I've talked with victims, although no relating to books for research.

Talk Supe: Which character and scene in STOLEN did you find the most difficult to write? 
Shiloh: The villain was hard to write. The hardest scene? The first few intimate scenes, because Shay had been through so much.

Talk Supe: People who are familiar with your work knows that it's always sexy, does writing those hot and steamy scenes get easier? 
Shiloh: I think I'm just inclined to write hot. It's something that just comes to me, so I can't really say it gets easier.

Talk Supe: You've established a "brand" as Shiloh Walker and usually your books are associated with something dark & sexy geared towards adult readers. Why choose a pseudonym instead of sticking with the more established "Shiloh Walker" name for your new UF series? 
Shiloh: There were a number of reasons. Most of it is business related-publishers do a lot of marketing for their writers, well, when somebody writes like a hyperactive bunny, sometimes that complicates things. This was one way to simplify things.

Talk Supe Was it more challenging to write as J.C. Daniels vs. Shiloh Walker? 
Shiloh: Writing Blade Song wasn't hard. It's actually one of the easiest books I've ever written, because it wanted so badly to be written, it practically leaped out of my brain.

Talk Supe: Which of your characters/series is the closest to your heart? 
Shiloh: That changes from book to book, year to year. Right now, Blade Song and Wrecked (not out yet) are near and dear to my heart. But in a year or two, that just might change.

Talk Supe: Where is the weirdest place you've ever seen your book being sold? 
Shiloh: I don't typically see them at weird places...just in the typical bookstore, although I do dance on the rare occasion I get picked up by grocery stores. I did have a reader tell me that she saw my books at a drugstore in Canada. That was kinda cool.

MADONNA OR LADY GAGA: Oh, Madonna. I'm a child of the 80s. No question.
P!NK OR MILEY CYRUS' BLOND MOHAWK: Um...I'm a child of the 80s. I barely know who Miley Cyrus is... lol.
KOURTNEY, KIM OR KHLOE KARDASHIAN: I couldn't tell you which one is which. I don't even know if I know what they look like. (lucky you!)

Thanks, Shiloh for taking the time out of your busy schedule to answer our questions.

  1. Wonderful Interview! I am always intrigued about the Pen Name. I bought my Stacia Kane Downside Ghost series from my local IGA food grocery store, lol! I read them from libary originally and then like a year later I saw them at my IGA - Independant Grocers Association store and BAM! picked them up with the zucchinis:D


    1. Zucchinis tastes good with a little Terrible on the side.

  2. Nice interview ladies ^_^ I've seen her book around, definitely sounds... interesting... >.< Gonna add it to my never ending TBR pile xD


    1. She writes real good stuff, you should try her sexy stories, it's so hot it'll burn through the pages and I'm not exaggerating.

    2. LOL I'll definitely keep that in mind, thanks Braine!

  3. Great interview! Woohoo, thank you for not choosing Miley Cyrus. That totally would suck. lol. :)

    1. Miley Cyrus now with her mohawk reminds me of Flava Flav's ex, Bridget Nielsen. Not exactly the way the look alike but the overall feel of what Miley's trying to do with herself now. Like sexy, dangerous, offbeat... trashy kind of thing LOL
