I sat down with Delia Petrano to talk writing, heroes and her new release, Storm!  

IMG_0322When did you realize or decide you wanted to be a writer? 

When I was younger I always love to write make up crazy stories. About two years ago, my cousin said that I should write a book. I thought she was crazy but after hours of talking about it, she finally convinces me to write a book. I enjoyed it so much I haven’t looked back since. I just love to write. 

What sort of challenges have you faced as a writer? How did you overcome them?

As most authors know, not everyone is going to like what you write and when you get a bad review it sometimes sets you back but I read the other reviews and I see that other people do enjoy the stories I write and that’s what keeps me going.

What advice would you give to new writers in the field?

If you feel like giving up read your reviews I promise it makes you feel better, don’t give up. 

Tell us a little about your writing nook! Favorite tea/coffee/writing snack?

I drink a lot of ice tea and eat hot fries and twisters.

Of all of your own characters, who would you most want to date? 

This is a really hard question I can’t just name one. Theo (Playboy Mansion) Devin and Strom (Scorpion Series) out of my gay characters Derek (Temptation) Marco (Scorpion Series)

What project are you currently working on?

Right now I’m working on two books right now. I know people call me crazy but I have a schedule that helps me.

What’s next for you?

After the Scorpion series, I’m going to do a standalone or two before starting another series.

About the Book

Tell us a little about your new release, Storm

IMG_0321Storm is my newest release. Storm is book number 3 of The Scorpion Series. He’s Tessa bodyguard. Tessa gets kidnapped but escapes and goes back home and ask her best friend Erika for help and that’s how Storm becomes her bodyguard, though he would do it anyway because he cares about her. 

Where did your inspiration for the book come from? 

The inspiration for the Scorpion series was from one of my favorite shows Sons Of Anarchy.

Did you outline the story, or dive right in?

Yes, I usually outline my books it helps me throughout the books.

What was your favorite part of working on this story? What was the most challenging?

My favorite part about Storm’s story is that it went in a whole different direction of what I plan. Even though you’re writing the book you never know what could happen. The most challenging part of was not changing Storm’s story to how it was planned from the beginning.

What’s next for this story – is it part of a series? When does it come out? 

Storm’s book is already out right now I’m working on his brother’s book. Storm is part of the Scorpion Series.

There’s one thing you should know about me I will do whatever it takes to protect my family no matter the consequences. Tessa is a part of that family. I cherish and love her to pieces and I would do anything to keep her safe.
