Q+A with Cheree Alsop
EJ: When did you begin writing?
Cheree: I began writing when I was about twelve. I used to read everything I could get my hands on. I started out reading every book written by Louis Llamor because I loved anything western. The very first book I ever wrote was a western called One Man Alone (yes, it is a redundant title). It was a sad book- a tragedy. After that, I got caught up with fantasy and never looked back!
EJ: What brought you to the paranormal genre?
Cheree: I've always loved the paranormal. I've been intrigued with werewolves, vampires, and the supernatural since I was young. I loved the idea that there are checks and balances with the paranormal world as well as our own, and when they intersect, there can be a huge variety of complications and intriguing situations!
EJ: If you could be any paranormal or have any one supernatural talent, what would it be? Why?
Cheree: I would have to go with a shapeshifter. I write a lot of werewolf books, so the idea of being able to turn into a wolf is a wonderful one. I would also love the ability to turn into a bird of some sort because flying that way just sounds so wonderful!
EJ: Tell us why readers will enjoy your new release.
Cheree: Werewolf Academy is a new series about young werewolves who have been rescued from the mass werewolf genocide and they are taken into hiding at the Academy. The book follows twins Alex and Cassie as they learn what it means to be a werewolf in a hostile world. They have their normal classes and also classes designed to help them perfect their werewolf instincts and strengths so they can defend themselves and their packs. Reviewers have said that this series is a mixture of Harry Potter meets Teen Wolf. It has action, adventure, peril, heartache, and a bit of romance mixed in. I think any reader will enjoy it!
EJ: If your book(s) were being made into a movie, who would you cast for the leading roles?
Cheree: I think any author's dream is to see their books on the big screen. I had a fan make a trailer for my Silver Series and seeing the characters I had created come to life like that was breathtaking. Here's the link to that trailer for anyone who would like to see it.
I think I'm stalling with the answer to the question. I feel like every reader sees characters differently in their own minds, and I don't want to pigeon hole them for my readers. I would just be thrilled to watch the movies!!
