Author Interview – Melissa Barker-Simpson

Author Interview: Melissa Barker-Simpson


I thought readers may be interested in hearing more about Melissa Barker-Simpson’s thoughts behind her new novella, The Contract, simply because I have questions for her, and I’m a reader too!


Melissa is kind enough to take the time to stop by and have a talk with us.  And please, don’t be shy.  If you have a question for Melissa, ask away!

Gina:  Where did you get the idea for your new series, The Fractured?

Melissa:  I’m not sure if you know this about me, but I really love wolves. So it’s not surprising that I’ve always wanted to write a tale about werewolves.

Saunder’s Choice & The Contract

Melissa Barker-Simpson

Organised by Diana (Part Time Monster). Organised by Diana (Part Time Monster).

If we were having coffee, you would no doubt notice my boundless enthusiasm. I’m buzzing with energy, and it has nothing to do with the caffiene coursing through my veins! Today, Gina Briganti and I published Changing Worlds, which means you can finally meet Maddy. Changing Worlds includes Saunders’ Choice by Gina, and my prequel to the Fractured Series, The Contract. If we were having coffee I would show you the cover…

Changing Worlds 5-5-15

As a special treat I wrote a four part story featuring Maddy, which coincides with the release and the forthcoming fantasy tour. If we were having coffee I would read the first part to you, because I love reading aloud. Unless, like my sister, you prefer to read it yourself, and then I’d tell you to click here.
