Hi! I’m Betsy Flak, author of The Eversfield Academy Vampire Hunters book series.
Hmm, what to say about myself? Well, I’m reader too, so let’s start there.
I love fantasy books with a love story. The more magic, the more action, the more heart-stopping moments that make me go “Squeeeee!” the better.
I love books with twists and turns, especially when I can only see those twists and turns coming upon a reread (and when I do see those twists and turns coming upon a reread).
And I’m a sucker for forbidden love. Something about those characters fighting their way to each other over and over (and over and over) keeps me turning the pages.
So, that’s what I put into my own books. Lots of drama and action and magic and forbidden love that’s more an epic love story than strict romance (and only sweet romance here, folks).
And of course, I love plotting those twists and turns, then adding a little trail of breadcrumbs hinting at what’s to come for those reading closely.
So, that’s who I am as a reader and a writer, but what about as a person?
Well, I’m a mom to two dogs and one human child.
I’m a wife to one devoted, incredibly supportive husband.
And I’m a roller derby player. Which helps with writing those hunter-versus-vampire action scenes. ;)
In my free time (after all that’s taken care of, so yeah, there’s not a ton of it), I love curling up on the couch with the family and watching TV or reading a good book. Usually fantasy on both counts and occasionally sci-fi. I also love a good dramedy on TV.
Oh and I love singing to my favorite songs at the top of my lungs, almost always off-key.
Currently, I live in Ann Arbor, Michigan, but I was born and raised in Grand Rapids, Michigan. I’ve also lived in or near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Boulder, Colorado; and Los Angeles, California. Someday, I hope to try my hand at living outside the US!
I love hearing from my readers, so please feel free to contact me!
