Merrie Destefano: Interview

by Mike Duran · 14 comments

This week, my friend and critique partner Merrie Destefano‘s debut novel,ย Afterlife: The Resurrection Chronicles hits stores. Merrie is a terrific writer and a wonderful person. And her book’s getting some great reviews. I recently had a chance, rather impromptu, to sit down with Merrie and ask her a few questions. Here’s some snippets from that interview.

Good interviews, Mike! Her book really sounds interesting; I think I’ll pick it up. The writing group you’re both a part of sounds like it’s really supportive and is a good staple. That’s important in a writer’s life. Although I don’t have a book about to come out, I can see the benefits of a writing group just in general.

Completely off topic, but has anyone ever told you that you look like the actor Bruce McGill?

Mike Duran September 27, 2010 at 5:02 PM

Never. I am most often compared to this actor.

S.C.,
Thanks so much for stopping by. Writing groups are really important, to me anyway. I know each writer has to make that decision for themselves.

And I’m glad that my book sounds appealing! (Yay!)

Mike,
Thank you SO much for taking the time to create and post these video interviews. You’re the best! I’m really glad we’re in a writer’s group together and I’m thrilled about YOUR book, THE RESURECTION, which comes on in February, 2011. I can’t wait to read it!

I really enjoyed theses clips.

I went over to Amazon and ordered your book for my Kindle but it says it won’t be delivered until tomorrow. I thought I could have it right now. ๐Ÿ™ Oh, well, I’ll get to read it tomorrow night.

Your writers group sounds great!

Sally,
Thanks so much for checking out the videos! And how exciting that you are going to get Afterlife on your Kindle. I hope you enjoy it. =) Thanks so much for all of your support!!

Merrie, we should pick a time to simultaneously jump up and down like little girls! LOL I am SO down. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Merrie Destefano September 27, 2010 at 5:42 PM

Katie,
LOL. You are so adorable! We SHOULD both jump up and down at the same time! And make someone bring us ice cream. *grin* And noise makers and fireworks.

10 AM tomorrow morning, Pacific Time.

Jumping and down ceremony.

Katie Dalton September 27, 2010 at 5:56 PM

Playing now! I like it when authors interview each other.

Also, Mike, do you work out? I ask this in the most heterosexual way possible.

Mike Duran September 27, 2010 at 5:04 PM

Yes. And I say that in the most heterosexual way possible.

Merrie Destefano September 27, 2010 at 5:58 PM

Jay and Mike,
LOL. In the most heterosexual way, of course.
