Five Questions With: Sabrina Luna

Sabrina Luna

Original Interview 1.26.2010

Sabrina Luna is a bestselling author of paranormal & erotic romance. 
 A returning guest to ConCarolinas, Sabrina was a founding member of The Midnight Muses – a group of authors that often traveled and promoted together.  In addition to her writing, Sabrina has recently begun hosting a podcast called Sugar and Spice Press Radio.

I met with Sabrina in a local coffee house to ask her five questions for ConCarolina’s Geek Gab section.


Q: What is your normal writing routine?

A:  Every morning I get up and decide which flavor coffee to have (I love coffee!).  I check my horoscope to see what kind of a day I’m going to have; catch up on all my social networks, check and answer my emails, etc. That takes me about an hour, and then I’m finally ready to write!

I do all my writing on a desktop computer, although sometimes I’ll use a notebook to jot down a few plot points or notes to myself.  I’ve even resisted getting a laptop, because I like to know that when I leave my office, I leave my work behind.  Although I’ve been seeing all these cute little netbooks lately, and now I’m kind of tempted to get one.

Q: What book are you reading right now?

A:  Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman. I’m actually reading 3 or 4 at any given time.  And I’m a used book store fanatic – always picking up more books to read.  I keep a stack by my bed. 

Q:  What other ConCarolinas guest or event (besides your own) are you most looking forward to?

A:  Oh, goodness.  I always love to see all the familiar faces on Author’s Row like A.J. Hartley and Gail Z. Martin.  ConCarolinas is just so much fun.  It’s my personal mini-vacation.

Q: Who was your greatest inspiration growing up?

A:  Definitely my parents.  Both my parents were very big readers.  I had a library card by the time I was 4 even though I wasn’t even reading yet.  I just loved the library.  My dad read mostly non-fiction, but my mom definitely loved the bodice-rippers and the celebrity biographies.  Both my brother and I were very big readers as a result of their influence.

I’m a Gemini, so I’m a natural storyteller, and my love of good stories made me want to start telling them.  When I was growing up, there was romance and there was erotica, but I really wanted a mix – erotic romance. “I can do this,” I realized, so I started writing.

Q: If the story of your life was to have a theme song, what would it be?

A:  Oh, wow.  This is going to make me sound old.  But if I were to pick one, I would have to pick Henry Mancini’s “Moonriver” from Breakfast at Tiffany’s. I love that line “my huckleberry friend.”  I’m always thinking about what that could mean.  And I just love the song.
