An Interview with Miranda Nichols, author of Immortal Sleepers.


How did you find your love of writing?


Writing for me has always been my hobby. I’m one of those people who don’t really like firm endings. I like for stories to continue on forever. So I often find myself dreaming up scenarios of what happened after the credits roll or the last page is turned. Then sometimes those continuations evolve into new stories with new characters and new settings and become an entirely new world for me to immerse myself and my readers in.

Did you have any big influences from other authors or even family members?

I draw inspiration from a lot of places so it’s hard for me to give credit to any one person. I’ve garnered a lot of support over the years from my Mom and other family members. I give a lot of credit to my agent, Stephanie Hansen, for pushing me to get my work out there for people to read.

Your characters seem so lifelike, were they made from examples in your life?

My personality is the type that makes it easy for me to relate to and understand other people. This helps a lot during character development. I have a general idea of how my characters think and what their values are. The entire character gets flushed out during the writing process as they react to the situations I put them in. I never really know how things are going to go until they happen, sometimes it’s even a surprise to me. That’s what makes the writing process exciting for me!

Is there anything you want to say to your readers that you haven’t yet had a chance to say?

Please buy my book when it comes out on January 29th! I always appreciate hearing when people enjoy my writing so reviews are always appreciated! And thank you in advance for your support!

Is there anything in the works for you? More books?

Yes, Blood Awakening is the first of the Immortal Sleepers series for which I have a total of twelve books planned. I am currently working on book two in the series, Awakened in Flame. There is a preview for this story at the end of Blood Awakening so be sure to check it out!
