WR: Tell us a little bit about yourself. What do you write? Why?
S: Hi, my name is Sandra Sookoo. I’m an almost forty writer with a big imagination and a wicked sense of humor. I write romantic fiction—all kinds! From contemporary stories to paranormals, from sci-fi tales to historical drama, I love writing it all. Why? Well, for the promise and the lure of the happily ever after. I’m a sucker for it.
WR: If you could be any one of your characters, who would you choose?
S: Hmm, that’s a hard question! The one I’m most like is Kate Little from Wedgie Tales and Panty Lines, but I’m awfully partial to my stronger heroines like Joy from Cairo Nights or Emma from Damaged Cargo.
WR: What is your creative process like? Do you need music to write? Silence?
S: Usually I’ll listen to music while I’m doing research, plotting and outlining. While I’m writing, I like silence. Maybe, if I’m writing from home, I’ll put on the Food Network in the background.
WR: What is a guilty pleasure of yours?
S: Watching America’s Next Top Model. Shh, but don’t tell anyone…
WR: What inspires you?
S: Life. Music, books, photos, paintings, song lyrics, snippets of conversations I heard in passing, animals, flowers. Inspiration is everywhere, you just have to open yourself to it.
WR: What is one of your worst pet peeves?
S: Spelling errors in social media statues and/or restaurant signs.
WR: Describe what a perfect day would be for you.
S: The perfect day is one where I can do what I love and know my hubby is there waiting for me at the end of it.
WR: If you could bring any fictional character to life, yours or anyone else’s, who would you pick?
S: In no particular order: Han Solo, Amelia Peabody, Tom Sawyer, Sherlock Homes
WR: If you could shape-shift, what animal would you turn into and why?
S: Wow, definitely a big cat, maybe a lion or a tiger. I’m a lover of all felines and I’d love to see the world like they see it.
WR: Where can we find you and your work around the web?
