Meet the Writer Wednesday: Alanna Lucas

Being an author is hard work and there are so many spectacular books waiting to be discovered! That’s why we do this weekly catch up–so readers can get an insight into new authors to check out and discover what inspires them!

Previous authors have shed plenty of wisdom regarding the writing process–what’s your favorite quote?

I don’t have just one favorite quote, but one on my list is: “If you want to be a writer, you must do two things above all others: Read a lot & Write a lot.” – Stephen King

Where do you draw your writing inspiration?

The characters that live in my head and the desire to tell their story.

Do you have a favorite character you’ve written? One that you feel like you could write forever?

I love all my characters for different reasons, but one of my favorites is Artemisia from When We Dance. She is not your typical heroine and life with her (and her family) is never dull.

At this point of the year, a lot of people’s brains are drifting to vacation time–what’s your dream vacation spot?

I would love to go on an extended Grand Tour of Europe, immersing myself in the various cultures. What better way to research than to experience?

Like most writers, I’m sure you’ve got a project in the wings–what’s coming up for you?

I am working on the last book- Waltzing with the Earl- in the In His Arms series. Anthea Albryght has been a secondary character in two books and it is exciting to be able to finally share her story.

When you’re not writing, what TV show are you tuning into?

Top Gear UK

Any books to recommend? What’s on your reading agenda?

I am currently reading The Earl’s Enticement by Collette Cameron.

What’s your astrological sign?

I’m a Virgo 🙂

Are there any pet peeves when you read a book that turn you off of it?

When the cover and blurb have nothing to do with what’s inside the book.

Where can readers find you and your books?

Thanks for joining us on Meet the Writer Wednesday! Join us next week to meet a new author!


I split my time writing and working my day job as a massage therapist. If it’s a creative pursuit though, chances are I’ve dabbled in it. Hell, I’ve played around with soapmaking, beer brewing, cupcake baking, tea blending and everything else under the midday sun. At the end of the day, my constant is always reading, writing and editing. I’m an Aries-Taurus cusp–which to any astrology buffs should tell you plenty. I hit the East Coast convention circuit pretty hard and chances are, you can find me vending for Solstice Brews while simultaneously promoting my books.

  1. I love the quote you chose from Stephen King. In fact, I feel bad, but instead of writing today, I’m going to read for the whole afternoon!! It’s storming outside and it’s a good day for a hot chocolate and a book!
    Loved the interview.

  2. Stephen King always has great quotes for writers! In fact, today I’m dedicating the whole afternoon to reading. It’s storming outside and a good book along with a mug of hot chocolate sounds pretty darn great!
    Loved the interview and getting to know you better.
