mother and little brother. Despite no one in her family earning a degree
higher than a GED, she put herself through college (earning a BA in
History), and then continued on to law school where she obtained her
Juris Doctorate.As a child, Stovall’s favorite novel was Island of the Blue Dolphins
by Scott O’Dell. The adventure on a deserted island opened her mind to
ideas and realities she had never given thought before—and it was at
that moment Stovall realized story telling (specifically fiction) became
her passion. Anything that told a story, be it a movie, book, video
game or comic, she had to experience. Now, as a professor and author,
Stovall wants to add her voice to the myriad of stories in the world and
she hopes you enjoy.
WEBSITE & SOCIAL LINKS:
· What is on your nightstand?
A phone charger and two Pokémon plushies (Eevee and Pikachu, to be exact). And that’s it. I like to keep it simple.
· What author would you totally fan?
My favorite authors include Robert A. Heinlein, Stephen King, and Will Wight. I’m definitely a fan of all of them (though Heinlein is dead – I’m still a fan). They’ve all written impressive works (and they’ve all written not-so-impressive works) but that’s why I like them. They write a lot. They create worlds I like to escape to. It’s amazing.
· What makes you cringe?
Watching someone do something embarrassing. Or watching someone pull a nail out of their foot. Or listening to someone rattle off facts that are completely wrong. All cringe-worthy.
· Do you obsessively plot out each point or just go with the flow?
I typically plot out the major points (the beginning, the middle and end) and all the connecting bits I create as I go along. Sometimes while I’m writing, I realize the scene needs a little more humor, or some character will stand out more than others and now I want to incorporate them throughout the novel – I make changes then, but not many.
· Is there a word you love to use?
Well, I love the words “wept,” “vivisect,” and “rapt” but those don’t pop up often. They just sound interesting (to me, anyway) so I like reading my work out loud when I see them.
