FEATURED AUTHOR: BREIGH FORSTNER


ABOUT THE BOOK

This is a story about a girl discovering and experiencing life for the first time. 
Bryn Schaefler grew up rich. Her parents expected the best out of her, picked her boyfriend for her, and groomed her to be the next trophy wife fresh out of high school.


But when they discover she wants to pursue music instead of following in her mothers footsteps, they wanted to hear nothing about it. 


That was when Bryn left for good.


By chance, she auditioned for main stream rock band Everlasting. Never in a million years did she think she would make it. 


Cale Pelton knew it was his fault for the band scrambling around to find a new guitarist. Once he saw Bryn audition, he knew he had to have her. Not just in the band, but in his mind, body and soul.



INTERVIEW WITH BREIGH FORSTNER


Breigh, how did you get started writing?

I’ve been writing ever since I was younger, I would say I was 12 when I started? I was big into horror movies so I wrote a short horror story that was actually kind of decent at the time, and I wish I would have kept it!

What's your favorite thing about the writing process?

Writing the very last chapter and typing “The End!”

What books do you currently have published?
I have 3 books in my Straight from the Heart series, which were originally self-published, but will be re-published by Booktrope.

If you could only watch one television station for a year, what would it be?
Hmm . . . that’s tough. I would have to say Lifetime for the heck of it.

How often do you tweet?
A few times a week. It’s not my main source of communication to my readers and other authors/bloggers, but I do like to use it.

How do you feel about Facebook?
I’m addicted, I can’t lie. I am on Facebook every night after my kids are in bed, even when I’m supposed to be writing.

YouTube is . . .  Fantastic! I put together a playlist of some of my favorite songs for when I’m writing that suit the books and characters I’m writing.


What do you love about where you live?

Port Huron is right along the water, and I live about five minutes away from the Blue Water Bridge, which connects Michigan to Canada. I love walking along the boardwalk every once in a while, seeing how beautiful the lake water is.


Do you write every day?
Yes I try to. Even if it’s 1,000 or only a couple of hundred, I get as much writing as I can in.

Are you an introvert or an extrovert?
Introvert for sure. I’m a very shy, quiet person, and I like to keep a lot of things to myself.

What's your favorite treat for movie night?
Buttery popcorn!

What is the most daring thing you've done?

Got a tattoo on each of my wrists and died my hair black within one weekend.


What’s the hardest thing you’ve ever had to write?
The hardest thing I’ve had to write about is another idea that I am working on right now and it has to do with a very tough topic (abortion). The topic hits me at home and is a very sensitive subject to me. 


Where is your favorite library, and what do you love about it?

I haven’t  been to that many libraries (sadly!) but my favorite one is the one that is in my hometown: St. Clair County Community College
.


What’s the worst thing someone has said about your writing? How did you deal with it?
The worst thing (that I know of) was someone said my book was written like a 14-year-old’s writing, completely unrealistic. It was hard for me to take, but I took the criticism and just continued to work on my books and my writing.


What's your relationship with your cell phone?
It’s glued to my side. . . haha. I’m on it way too much more often then I should be, I consider it a lifeline sometimes. 


How many hours of sleep do you get a night?

I try to get about 7, maybe 8 hours of sleep. It depends on how late I stay up at night.


Do you have a favorite book?

It’s a tossup between Collide and Pulse by Gail McHugh, or The Coincidence of Callie and Kayden by Jessica Sorensen.


How about a favorite book that was turned into a movie? Did the movie stink?
The Harry Potter Series. I never got into the last 2 movies, but the rest of them were amazing, and of course I loved the books.


Do you sweat the small stuff?
I’m a big stresser and a worrywart. I try not to sweat the small stuff, but I’m one of those people that doesn’t like to make mistakes and likes to make people happy.


What are you working on now? I’m working on the fourth book in the Straight from the Heart Series, called Trusting My Heart. I also have a few other WIP’s I’m working with but Trusting My Heart is my main focus.
