Interview with Author G.C Naffin

Have you always wanted to be a writer?
I have always loved writing, though it didn’t dawn on me for quite a while that I may be able to take it to the level of publication. When Iwas younger, I would write stories about horses because that’s what I knew best. Now I’ve been able to finesse my love of fantasy and horses into the same story.

What do you hope to achieve with your book?
I will settle for anything. I love hearing from people that they’ve read Defiance and enjoyed it and I hope I can continue to hear that for a long time. To be able to share a story I’ve created is a wonderful and very rewarding experience.

Who is your favourite character?
Declan. He’s a joy to write because he is surrounded by so many enigmas and shady secrets. When I introduced him in Defiance, I thought he would be a temporary character. As the story progressed, I quickly discovered that he held an important position for everyone – the characters and the readers. Very much the loner with an attitude, Declan always has something up his sleeve that may put him in the position of being the bad guy, but I can assure you that there is much more to him than that!

Have you got any ideas for future books?
I’m currently writing the second book in The Successor Series and hope to continue the series after that. Once the series has been finished, I can see myself writing more about Iledora and Vivian’s reign, but from another perspective.

If you could choose any super power what would it be?

To see the future, and plan accordingly!

Do you have any passions/interests other than writing?
I own a horse and he takes up a great part of my daily activities. I’m also a runner and spend much of my time training for races that fund research for illnesses or children in need. But aside from being a fitness fanatic, I enjoy photography and baking.

Quick Fire Questions:

Favourite Colour? Blue.
Favourite Animal? Horses! They have been my life since I was seven or eight and things haven't changed.
Reading or Writing? Writing. That's my problem. I do more writing than reading and my ideas all dry up because I'm never doing anything else!
Television or Computer? You could break my TV in half and I'd never notice. I would go crazy without my computer, though!
Hardback or Paperback? Paperback. Bendable covers!


  1. Awesome interview!! It's interesting how she says that Declan was supposed to be a temporary character but became permanent "as the story progressed." I've always wondered with novelists when they say the story just comes out of them -- I've never had that type of experience while writing. Most of the time I edit every sentence with painstaking detail!! Really great interview, it really got me thinking!! I'm def going to check out Defiance!!

  2. GREAT interview! I am looking forward tio reading this book even more now ;-D

  3. hi! i follow your blog! good interview!!

    just stopping by :) i have cool pics on mine today that remind me of dark YA.


YOU ARE BEYOND AMAZING! Thank you so freakin' much for commenting! Logging on and seeing that there is a new comment on my post is just one of the nicest feelings ever - I'm overcome by all the feels, and get that warm, fuzzy feeling inside of me. (Y'know, the one that you get when you see a book. Or a big bar of chocolate. Or a unicorn.)

I will be replying to your comment as quickly as I can - so check back if you want to see my response or have asked a question etc. - and I will also be returning the favour on your own blog, if you have one! What's life in the blogosphere without some comment love?!

Again, huge thanks! *tackle hugs* & I hope you have a fabulous day! :)
