Empowered Wednesday: Shana Vanterpool

Welcome to another Empowered Wednesday's Bookworms!! I'm back with another feature for you guys with an amazing author who definitely doesn't shy away from all kinds of feels! So without anymore tempting, let's get on with it!

Q: Can you tell our readers about yourself and what you do?
A: My name is Shana Vanterpool, and I write angsty, delicious and beautiful romance novels.

Q: How did you first get into writing and when did you decide to take the leap and go for it? 

A: I love reading. It’s been a safe place for me since I was a child. But writing is creating safe places for others, and the moment I found that I could read and write, I knew there was nothing else I wanted to do.

Q: Who or what inspired you to do what you are doing now? 
A: Every book I ever read that took me away inspired me and continues to do so.

Q: How would you describe your style with writing? 
A: Chaotically beautiful. 

Q: What is one thing you wish you knew starting out with writing or something you could have told your past self? 
A: Be true to yourself, even if that means losing friendships. 

Q: What do you do in your spare time? 
A: Besides reading, I love spending time with my family and running. 

Q: How do you motivate yourself to keep the novel going? 
A: My readers. They’re truly special. 

Q: What do you find the most frustrating and/or challenging aspect of writing? 
A: Doubting myself. Self-doubt is a necessary evil. But too much of it can be hard to navigate.

A: Writing in an office made of all glass in the middle of the forest. Edward Cullen walks by, and Bella’s old news. Come on, he sparkles!

A: I try and write every day. 

Q: Can you name some of your favourite authors and explain why they’re your favourite? 
A: I love them all. We share the same passion. How amazing is that?

Q: What would be your go to meal, outing and Starbucks/Tim Horton’s Drink? Starbucks?

(Uncle Jesse from Full House, Jake Ryan from Sixteen Candles, and Jess Mariano from Gilmore Girls) 
A: Kill Uncle Jesse, kiss Jess Mariano, and marry Jake Ryan

Q: If you were stuck on an Island what would be the three things you would want with you? 
A: Chuck Norris (he’s all I’d need to survive, haha!)

Q: What sort of advice can you give to anyone out there that’s thinking about starting a novel? 
A: If it’s your passion, it won’t be easy. But doing what you love never is. Doing what you love comes with hard work, disappointments, but unadulterated joy.
