1. When do you first realise that you wanted to be a writer?
Ans – I first realized that I wanted to be a writer about a year ago. Before that, writing was just a hobby.
2. Tell us about your experience of writing A Way Back into Love.
Ans – A Way Back Into Love started out as an experiment for fun. I wanted to try my hand at writing novels. Before Love, I had only written short stories, journals, magazine articles and essays. I wanted to see how I did with a full-fledged novel. As it’s my first work, the first few chapters of Love were kinda awful. But as I honed my writing skills, it became better. You can actually see my growth and evolution as a writer in the course of Love if you pay attention. It was a learning experience for me, and I loved every minute of it.
3. Is Contemporary Romance your favourite genre to read? Who are your favourite contemporary romance authors?
Ans – Romance is my favourite genre to read, be it contemporary or historical or paranormal. Some favourites of mine are Jill Shalvis, Slyvia Day, Maya Banks, and Jessica Bird.
4. What would you say is your most interesting writing quirk?
Ans – I always live in a world that I created, even when I’m not writing.
5. What was one of the most surprising things you discovered while writing?
Ans – I discovered that I’m nit-picky when it comes to Grammar. One thing I cannot tolerate in anything I read or write is a single grammatical error.
6. Have you ever gotten a reader's block?
Ans – Yes, I often get them. Worst cases too.
7. Which is your favourite scene in the book and which was the hardest scene to write?

9. What is most unethical practice in the publishing industry?
Ans – Undoubtedly, plagiarism. It’s a disease – a deadly virus.
10. Do you Google yourself?
Ans – Oh my God, yes! Far too often. It still amazes me that people can find me on Google by just typing in my name.
Emily stepped back from him and shook her head. “Oh, you know damn well what I mean. You know what, Derek? I’m done having this conversation with you. I’m so done with this conversation and I’m so done with you,” Emily spat out angrily before brushing past him.
“Emily, wait,” Derek said, catching her by her arm. “Where are you going?”
Emily spun around and gave him a bitter look before looking down at his hand gripping her arm. “Leave my arm,” she said in a low yet threatening voice, “And why do you care where I’m going? It’s none of your business.”
Derek didn’t leave her arm in spite of her warning and said, “Em, you’ve had too many drinks. You can’t drive in this condition. I’ll drop you home.”
Emily jerked her arm free from his grasp and replied in a bitter voice, “Thank you, but no. I’m perfectly capable of getting myself home on my own. I don’t need you to drop me home. Do you get it, Derek Thorpe? I DON’T NEED YOU!” Emily yelled the last words, causing a few people to look their way.
About the Author:
Veronica Thatcher is an exciting new contemporary romance author. Ever since she was very young, she’s dreamed of becoming a doctor when she grew up. While still forging ahead with that, majoring in pre-med in college, she unwittingly stumbled upon a new dream—becoming a published author. Some may call her an introvert or a wallflower, but she has always found she could express herself better in written, rather than spoken, words. However, never in her wildest dreams had she envisioned she would pursue writing as a prospective career, not just a hobby. Her love for writing goes hand-in-hand with her love for a good romance novel—whether it be a feel-good, sweet romance or a dark, suspenseful one. When she’s not studying, reading, or writing, she is usually found blasting her favourite songs, sometimes singing and dancing along to them. She dabbles in a number of activities, including painting, karate, singing and dancing. She is a huge chocoholic – probably the biggest – and she is an ice-cream junkie too. She considers herself technologically handicapped forever and has no shame in admitting that. She also deems chocolates her boyfriend, Patrick Dempsey the love of her life, and Friends her life!
Her first book, A Way Back Into Love, is slated for release in February 2017, and she hopes readers will enjoy it as much as she enjoyed writing it. You can reach Veronica through Facebook, Twitter, Goodreads, Wattpad and Gmail.
