Beth is as an award winning novelist who lives on the beach in Florida where inspiration is only steps away. While often found in coffee or wine shops up and down the nearby string of islands writing the next novel, but Beth also takes time to enjoy this paradise. Many of the characters in the novels come from people quietly observed at these coffee and wine shops. Yes, a good glass of wine creates many romantic twists—almost as much as the eye candy walking the beaches—well almost.
After working hard writing all day Beth loves to explore new horizons, be it cycling the trails or dancing the night away to a top salsa band performing in one of South Beach’s top nightclubs. Traveling the world also is an addiction for Beth, but it contributes to the stock of characters discovered in real life which become heroes and heroines in future stories.
Beth belongs to the Romance Writers of America, the Florida Writers Association, and the International Travel Writers Association.
Q: Where do you find inspiration for your storylines?
A: I live on several of the best beaches in the world. All I have to do is walk outside and nature takes over. This is true both during the day when the sun worshipers are out and late night when the parties go into full party mode.
Q: Are you on the internet much and participate in social media outlets?
A: Oh, yes. On Twitter and Facebook I’m @AuthorBethGray. I’m starting a new blog at www.AuthorBethGray.com which also doubles as a website. I will post many updates there, so please bookmark it.
Q: I heard you love to dance. Can you tell me more?
A: I have been dancing Latin and ballroom since the age of six. I love competing and dancing any chance I get. The best salsa clubs are in NYC; Washington D.C.; Moscow, Russia and St. Petersburg, Russia. However, the ones in South Beach are not bad and have a great party atmosphere.
Q: Tell me about your writing day?
A: I am so accustomed to living on an international clock that I work whenever. It could be at eight in the morning if I’m lucky, but usually happens at two or four in the morning. I normally write ten or twelve hours per day.
Q: How long does it take you to write a novel?
A: I write very fast and can do a 20,000 word novella in a week, a short novel in two or three weeks, and a full length one of over 100,000 words in one to two months. I’m just starting with Siren and look to produce many novels in a short period of time which I hope the readers enjoy enough to keep reading.
Q: What is your background story?
A: I was a professional student and have many degrees from one coast to the other and from north to south. I’ve worked in such diverse occupations from fashion photography to real estate sales. I’ve been blessed to travel widely and have made many friends around the world. Most importantly, I have found my true calling in writing.
