My name is Olivia Howe. I was born in Florida and raised in Maine.
Tell us a bit about your latest release.
Dark Love was released on February 14th, 2014. It was my debut novel! It's about a young girl named Nina, struggling with severe depression and the loss of her father. She meets Andrew Madsen and her sister meets William Madsen. Two sisters fall in love with two brothers that have secrets that will change their prospective of the world and of themselves.
I'm currently working on Seeing Red (book 2 in The Dark Love Series) and it should be released by the end of June.
Where do you get your inspiration from?
Music. Music is so inspiring for me. I put on a sad song when I'm writing a sad scene. I put on a party song when I'm writing a party scene. I put on a upbeat song when I'm writing an angry scene. It just helps me so much! Also, my two beautiful nieces inspire me to want to be better in life. They're the reason that I finished my debut novel in the first place. They make me want to be a better person.
If you couldn’t be an author, what would your ideal career be?
I have two that I'm stuck between. I always wanted to be an actress, but I'm so shy around people. I would also love to own my own cafe! That would be pretty cool!
Do you have a favorite character from your books? Why are they your favorite?
My favorite character would definitely be Nina from Dark Love. She is so like me in so many ways. She's dealing with severe depression just like me. She's shy and timid around people. The thing I like most about her is that I transformed her into the person I would like to be. For example, her strength and optimism.
What trait do you find the sexiest?
Smiles and tattoos. I'm a sucker for tattoos on men.
What’s your idea of a perfect romantic evening?
A perfect romantic evening for me would be going to a rock concert. I'm not the kind of girl that would want a candle lite dinner and then a walk on the beach, even though that would be cute, but I would much rather go to a rock concert, that would be even cuter.
What do you do when you’re not writing?
I like to read and I'm addicted to a lot of TV shows. I recently got addicted to Friday Night Lights. I also enjoy getting lots beauty rest!
Is the stuff you write about from experience or mostly imagination?
Mostly from experience, but with a twist of imagination in it.
What do you do to get in the mood for writing love scenes? Candles, music etc?
I put on a slow, relaxing love song and let my imagination take over.
